Welcome to our practice ~ Lifetime Wellness! Our names are Dr. Marc VanHoogstraat and Dr. Colleen Trombley-VanHoogstraat. We’ve been in practice together for almost 30 years. Lifetime Wellness is more than just a name… it’s our way of life!
Our mission is to teach as many people as possible that all Health and Happiness comes from within; that we are created with an unlimited potential for Health, Wellness and Vitality.
Our expertise lies in providing safe, scientific, and successful conservative care & lifestyle recommendations to enhance your life and level of performance, while helping you keep the destructive effects of spinal interference (subluxation) and toxic lifestyle choices to a minimum. The end result? You feel good AND “function good”! That’s the key to a long, healthy, happy life!
Dr. Marc was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and attended Southwest Missouri State University earning his Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Human Biology. Dr. Colleen is originally from Harrow, Ontario, Canada. She attended the University of Windsor earning her Bachelor of Human Kinetics degree with an Honors degree in Applied Kinesiology, majoring in Exercise Physiology.
We met as post-grad students at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO., where we graduated as Doctors of Chiropractic in 1994 – we’ve been together ever since! How did we end up in Michigan? It must be a “God thing” – we love it here, and Michigan has been a wonderful place to begin our life and raise our family together!
We were married in 1998 at our home in Lakeville and have been blessed with 2 little Wellness experts: Jacqueline and Braeden. Both kids were born at home – Jacqueline on the 4th of July, 2002 and Braeden on May 3, 2005. They were each “caught” by daddy and received their 1st Chiropractic adjustments just moments after birth! They’ve been healthy, happy and drug-free ever since… thanks to a healthy lifestyle and deep faith in our body’s innate design to express health.
We are incredibly passionate about Chiropractic, Wellness, and LIFE! We love what we do, and we love to teach and share what we’ve learned with others. We have invested countless hours in advanced training over the past two decades in order to continually ‘sharpen our saw’ and bring the latest science and highest level of excellence to our practice members, our community, and far beyond thanks to this age of technology.
One of our veteran practice members summed this up quite nicely when she wrote, “Their presence in this community has been a blessing to all who have benefited from their committed care. The love and the energy they have put into providing the best care possible for the families of our community has been a marvel to watch.”
Another family stated, “Dr. Marc and Dr. Colleen have a true passion for what they do and what they do is never less than outstanding. It is evident that they are committed to doing what’s right and don’t just settle for taking the path of least resistance. We truly believe that if there is one gift you could give your precious children, it would be the blessing of being under their wing.”
Since beginning our practice in 1995, we have gradually created the practice of our dreams, as well as evolved into seasoned authors, speakers and consultants. No matter how and where we deliver our message, ‘Lifetime Wellness’ remains just that… it’s caring for our practice members for life. Our emphasis is placed on the complete health of the people we take care of, not just their symptoms.
Our practice is a family practice with a special emphasis on The Wellness Lifestyle (Advanced Nutrition, Movement Physiology, and the Science of Mindset & Emotions), all-inclusive Corrective and Wellness Care programs, Safe & Effective Weight Loss, Detoxification for Whole Body Health, Healthy Solutions for Thyroid, GI/Gut/Digestion, AutoImmune, Adrenal, and Blood Sugar problems. As well as the all-important specialized care of expectant moms and newborns. As you can see, we take care of people of all ages with any health concern.
We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to help you create a more vibrant, healthy future!
Wishing you a Lifetime of Wellness,
Dr. Marc and Dr. Colleen
