VOTED CHILLIWACK'S FAVOURITE CHIROPRACTOR for 2019 on the Chilliwack Progress' 'A List'!
Also the proud recipient of the 'Professional Services' Award from the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce for 2017!
Dr. Kara Bonnefoy was raised in the beautiful Fraser Valley in Chilliwack, B.C.. Her journey towards becoming a Chiropractor began as a teenager, inspired by a particular uncle whose love for Chiropractic and natural healing left a lasting impression. Since that time, Dr. Kara graduated from Life Chiropractic College West in 2005 in Hayward, California, joining the over 40 relatives before her who have committed their lives to helping others through family wellness Chiropractic care.
Dr.Kara is determined to help those in her own community of Chilliwack. She finds it completely rewarding watching her clients' lives transform due to the restoration of proper Nervous System function to themselves and their children. By teaching the benefits of maintaining a healthy spine and Nervous System, not merely the absence of pain and symptoms, Dr.Kara encourages all ages to be a part of the ‘Chiropractic Lifestyle’. She promotes the Chiropractic Lifestyle by encouraging healthy living that includes good nutrition, exercise, and a properly functioning Nervous System!
Dr.Kara strives to make a difference in all of the lives she touches, starting with even the newest members of the families she sees! After completing over 200 hours of additional training with regards to Chiropractic care in pregnancy and infancy through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, Dr.Kara is excited to be settled in Chilliwack since 2010 with her own office, ‘Serenity Chiropractic’. She is certified in the Webster Technique as well, which incorporates specific analysis and adjustment of the pelvis in the pregnant (and non-pregnant weightbearing) patient, improving the neuro-biomechanical function.
Her belief is that a body free of nerve interference will be able to adapt accordingly to it’s environment, and will grow and develop optimally. It is essential to respect the body for the complex system that it is, and by having your entire family checked for nerve interference on a regular basis, you are giving them the gift of health that will last a lifetime!

About Brianna, CA
Brianna first worked for Serenity Chiropractic in 2013 after experiencing great benefit from Chiropractic care herself. Initially a patient, she jumped at the opportunity to work for Dr. Kara when the position of CA, (Chiropractic Assistant), came available. After a personal leave of absence, she has returned in 2017 and is so excited to be back home. She has been happily married for 10 years and has a son. Her family comes in to get adjusted regularly and tells everyone they know about Dr. Kara!
"I initially came to the Chiropractic world as a skeptic. I had chronic headaches and finally got to the point of no return. Thankfully Dr. Kara was only a couple doors down from my work and 5 minutes after my first adjustment I felt some relief. After a few months of treatment with no major headaches I jumped at the chance to work for Dr. Kara when an opening came up!
Once I started working for Dr. Kara I started telling her about my sleep disorders. There had been no diagnosis, however I had gone through multiple sleep studies at UBC and ARH. I am technically 30 seconds away from Narcolepsy. I have experience Sleep Deprivation Hallucinations, Sleep Paralysis and no REM sleep for a number of years. Upon hearing this Dr. Kara suggested that we increase my adjustments. After only a few short months of consistent treatment, I got the all clear from the specialists. They called it a ‘miraculous recovery’, I told them it was Chiropractic Care! I am now able to drive, stay awake during TV shows or reading a book, I have more energy to actually play with my son and go to the gym multiple times a week."
We offer Chiropractic care for pregnancy, babies, children, and families!
WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT with Dr.Kara:
Your first visit starts with a thorough Health History. From there she will analyze your spinal ranges of motion, neutral standing posture, and perform scans of your spine using an sEMG to determine altered patterns of tension and interference in your spine and Nervous System. Due to the importance of being specific, Dr.Kara will not adjust you on your first visit. She takes the time to analyze and review your exam findings first.
When she sees you on your second visit to the office, she will tell you what she found, and do an adjustment.
From there we book you a special time to thoroughly go over all of your exam findings with Dr.Kara, and have a report for you containing copies of your scans, posture, home care, and care plan.
WHAT TO EXPECT ON YOUR FIRST VISIT WITH YOUR CHILD:
Dr.Kara will begin by taking a thorough Health History of your child, starting with the mother's prenatal history. Then she will perform checks and tests depending on the age of the infant or child. If the child is old enough, she will assess posture using the same method as with adults! From there she will discuss what the next course of care will be, and on the next visit with your child you will receive a report containing a summary of what was found in your child's spine, and subsequent recommendations!
