"True North is the internal compass that guides you successfully through life. It represents who you are as a human being at your deepest level. It is your orienting point. Your fixed point in a spinning world. Your True North is based on what is most important to you, your most cherished values, your passions and motivations, the sources of satisfaction in your life."
- Bill George, Author Finding Your True North
With the retirement and encouragement of longtime Columbia Falls Chiropractor, Applied Kinesiologist, and Palmer graduate, Dr. Robert Hager, in 2014, Dr. Todd sold his successful Las Vegas, Nevada practice and moved his wife and kids to the Flathead and started TrueNorth Chiropractic Center in downtown Columbia Falls at 9th and Nucleus. Prior to the move, Dr. Todd operated a highly regarded specialized 16 year performance and wellness based chiropractic practice in Las Vegas with emphasis on many unique and highly effective chiropractic techniques to include; Activator, Applied Kinesiology (AK), Gonstead, Thompson Drop, Sacro-occipital Technique (SOT), TBM, Nutritional Counseling and NeuroEmotional Techniques (NET) just to name a few. His patient base has consisted of a huge diversity of patients and conditions ...from elite World Class athletes and top Las Vegas performers to everyday people wanting more out of life. Dr. Todd offers a unique perspective having grown up in natural healthcare and has been able to help many on achieving their goals. "Getting the most out of life is what we all desire... and at times we all need a coach. For many I have been that catalyst helping them create the changes they desire." -Dr. T
Community and Volunteer Service
Dr. Todd is very proud to have a long history serving his communities while simultaneously pursuing his distinguished professional academic career. For example, he has served as a Volunteer Ski Patroller with National Ski Patrol, and maintained active membership over the 11 years spanning from high school thru obtaining his doctorate at Palmer. As a former EMT while in graduate school, Dr. Todd was sought after to become an Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) Instructor and senior level ski instructor for the NSP. Excelling as a patroller and winning the respect of his peers he has received both "Candidate of the Year" and "Patroller of the Year" service awards. While completing his pre-med studies at the Univeristy of Colorado he even volunteered as an adaptive ski instructor for the National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) at Winter Park resort in his spare time on weekends . Internationally, while in graduate school he participated in chiropractic service missions to India with Palmer College. With the move to Montana he is fulfilling his longstanding dream of living and working in a mountain community while embracing the vibrant healthy active lifestyle they promote. An avid outdoorsman, cyclist and telemark skier, he is proud to call the Flathead home. He looks forward to keeping his skills sharp and one day joining a local Search and Rescue team or volunteering with DREAM Adaptive.
The "New" Columbia Falls and Kalispell Locations
Always on the move and with a constant striving to serve, Dr. Todd moved his Columbia Falls office January 2017 into retiring Columbia Falls chiropractor, Dr. Wayne Jacobsmeyer's prior "Uptown" Nucleus location to expand his services and better serve the community. This past year he has brought in full office computerization and digital x-ray capabilities while simultaneously updating the front office décor.
In early 2016, Dr. Todd was invited to be part of the launch of the brand new Cloud 9 Float Spa in Kalispell and in response added his second Flathead Valley location within the new facility. By being "in-house" he is able to directly refer patients to onsite cutting edge "biohacking" therapies such as float tanks, infrared sauna, and cryotherapy, and Class 4 LASER. Additionally, Dr. Todd enjoys collaborating with the other providers in-house and valley wide to provide the highest level of care possible. (Cloud 9's current in-house providers include: Naturopaths, Dr. Joe Holcomb & Dr. Paul Raish, Massage Therapist, Stephanie May, LMT and Acupunturist, Stephanie Taylor, LAC.)
Dr. Todd Schleusner, a 1998 Palmer College of Chiropractic graduate, began his distinguished career practicing with his father, Dr. Larry Schleusner, and sister, Dr. Julie Schleusner at Schleusner Chiropractic Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. After eight years in practice, he branched out on his own and started his own highly regarded athletic performance, nutrition and wellness based holistic practice, Living Well Chiropractic Center in Summerlin, Nevada. With the retirement and recommendation of Columbia falls chiropractor, Dr. Robert Hager in 2014, Dr. Todd fulfilled his lifelong dream of quieter mountain living and moved his family to the Flathead Valley and opened TrueNorth Chiropractic Center January 2015. To better serve his growing Columbia Falls practice in January 2017, Dr. Todd expanded his practice into retiring Dr. Jacobsmeyer's "Uptown" Nucleus location across from Smith's. Dr. Hager and most recently Dr. Jacobsmeyer have entrusted Dr. Todd as their official "Custodian of Records" for all their prior patient files and x-rays. (Chances are if you were a former patient of either doctor within the past 7 years, we may still have your records and will be able to take over where they left off .) We look forward to meeting you soon should the need arise. New Patients and Tourists Welcome!
