Chiropractor Stanley Dombroski D.C.
Hello, my name is Stan Dombroski, and I am the owner and clinic director of Balanced Health Chiropractic Center.
What makes our center really special is that we are among the few who actually specialize in the NUCCA technique, which is gaining momentum in the industry, and it is becoming a highly recognized standard.
The technique is only represented by roughly 300 people on a global scale, and we are proud to bring the service to the people in our area!
As a kid, all I wanted to do in college was to play football. My freshman year of college my mom suggested I become a chiropractor. Having no experience with a chiropractor I didn't think too much about it. As I finished up school as an exercise physiology major I realized it was something I didn't want to do my entire life. Again, my mom brought up being a chiropractor. So I started looking into it and it just made sense. During my first year of chiropractic school I was listening to a speaker on campus and it was like someone flipped a switch. At that point I knew I was in the right place doing what I was supposed to be doing. It also helped me understand the reasons behind some of my own physical issues that I was experiencing first-hand, such as frequent headaches. Things got even deeper once I discovered NUCCA. I was looking to become the best chiropractor I could be so as soon as I started school, I started looking to join technique clubs. With having no prior experience with any technique in chiropractic I decided to join the largest club on campus. I figured they knew something I didn't know. One day on my way to club my girlfriend grabbed my hand and insisted on me joining her in the NUCCA club. I didn't want to go but I went anyway. Thankfully I went and listened to the speaker that was in club that day. He made a lot of sense and filled in a lot of questions I had concerning the other technique club I was attending. It made sense to me that I was able to measure someone before an adjustment then again after to see a change and have a calculated formula determined for each person giving me an unprecedented level of accuracy and precision!
To this day, I still consider NUCCA a truly groundbreaking technique that works with people from all walks of life!
Through my work, my vision is to help people in West Michigan regain their wellness and peace of mind, improving their lives and rediscovering their full potential of health! In order to achieve this, I work with a talented team of individuals, who are committed to providing expert service and attentive care to all of our patients.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. You're always welcome to visit Balanced Health Chiropractic Center at one of our two locations - our primary office in Zeeland, as well as our second office location in Grand Rapids.

Melissa Baker - Chiropractic Assistant & Massage Therapist
Front desk: I joined Balanced Health as a chiropractic assistant in 2012. I was under traditional chiropractic since a very young age, but the biggest change came when Dr. Paul introduced me to NUCCA. It significantly helped my headaches. I love chiropractic, not just because it helps me live pain-free but I’ve also found it helps my body to function better! It is a joy to be on the front desk here, helping you with your schedule and billing concerns, and helping make your experience warm and positive.
Massage: In 2019, I became licensed as a massage therapist. I love using massage to help promote the body’s natural healing. I specialize in therapeutic massage influenced by Tui Na (Chinese acupressure massage).
My technique incorporates gentle to deep flowing movements, stretching, and a focused vibration technique to target adhesions. I especially enjoy working with those experiencing pain in the shoulders, neck, elbows, and knees, and those who suffer from carpal tunnel and sciatica.
My work can also benefit prenatal clients, athletes, and anyone seeking overall wellness of being. Because everyone’s bodies are unique, I craft tailored care plans to work towards specific treatment goals.
Rochelle Coppersmith - Chiropractic Assistant
I joined the Balanced Health Team in April of 2015. I have always enjoyed being around people and I like the feeling of making a difference in their lives. This is a great place to be for that! Working with the staff here is like being a part of the BEST team! We have excellent doctors, and we couldn’t ask for better patients. At the end of 2018, we started using cold laser therapy to help patients manage their pain. I love to see the patients find relief through this therapy.
I grew up in Holland and consider myself extremely blessed to have grown up in such a beautiful place. In my free-time you will most likely find me curled up with a cup of tea and a good book, spending time with family, or watching movie classics. I also enjoy teaching Sunday school for the 1st -3rd graders at my church.
