Ceci Wong, D.C., graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic West, in San Jose, California, in December, 2003, and after successfully passing all 4 board examinations of the American National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, she went on to receive her California Chiropractic License.

Ceci’s specialties include pediatric chiropractic and women’s health issues. Her interest in treating pediatric patients arose as she saw the amount of clients walking in with back pains that could have been prevented at an early age. She is very passionate about educating the younger generation to take care of their bodies! In addition to other previous pediatric technique seminars, she is currently following further study which will lead to a certification/diplomate in Chiropractic Pediatrics from the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association.

Ceci’s background began in personal training and rehabilitation. She was an ACE certified personal trainer in the U.S., and worked mainly at an all female gym. She believes that having strong muscles and good stability is also an important aspect of effective therapy.

Ceci utilizes a mixture of treatment techniques because as experience has shown her, not every patient reacts to the same treatment methods and not every treatment method works for every condition. Since moving to Holland, she has continued to expand her treatment skills, which help to broaden her treatment strategies and expand her growing array of chiropractic techniques. Ceci continues to develop professionally by regularly attending seminars in order to stay current with the newest research and learn more ways of treating different ailments. She speaks English, Dutch and Mandarin Chinese.
