Meet Dr. Frances A. May, DC., L.AC.

Spinal Consultant

Dr. Frances A. May

Dr. Frances May has a passion for animals of all kinds. One of her earliest childhood memories is of riding ponies at a zoo in Chicago. After forays into human medicine, Anthropology, and teaching, she realized that medicine was her true calling!

Dr. May decided to study chiropractic medicine after experiencing firsthand the healing benefits it can offer. She moved to California to start a practice for human patients, and began applying chiropractic techniques first to her horse, and eventually to clients’ dogs.

Eventually, she was treating more animal patients than human, and so decided to make the switch to animal medicine full-time! Dr. May became the 67th person in the world to receive her Certified Animal Chiropractor’s license. By 1996, she had added Rehabilitation and Sports Massage to her techniques, as well as becoming licensed in acupuncture.

Since 1993, Dr. May has served as a Spinal Consultant to Veterinarians, and has been seeing patients at Ocean Shores Animal Hospital since 2014. She holds a Master’s degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and is also a Master Reiki Practitioner, Therapeutic Touch Practitioner, and Equine Sports Massage Specialist.

Dr. May enjoys spending time with her husband, who is retired from the Navy. They have two Tennessee Walking horses and two beautiful Collies.
