Dr. Anthony J. Pacelli
Dr. Anthony J. Pacelli is an energetic and enthusiastic advocate of the powerful natural healing benefits of Chiropractic, Quantum Neurology, Oriental Medicine, Nutrition, Exercise, Positive Thinking, and other forms of the natural healing arts. His enthusiasm for Chiropractic care came naturally when his father, Dr. Victor A. Pacelli, was a successful chiropractic pioneer practicing on the east coast for over thirty-one years. His desire to follow in his father's footsteps began developing at an early age as he witnessed the effectiveness of Chiropractic care and many of the natural healing arts being performed.
Dr. Pacelli studied at the world's oldest and largest Chiropractic Institution, Palmer College of Chiropractic, in Davenport, Iowa. While a student, he received several prestigious awards including the Clinical Excellence Award. He was chosen for this award from his graduating class of over 500 for exhibiting superior proficiency in treating patients in a clinical setting.
Because of his great appreciation for the life work and technique developed by the renowned Dr. Clarence S. Gonstead, Dr. Pacelli strongly desired to study under this great physician. He spent three years under Dr. Gonstead's postgraduate program at the Gonstead Clinic in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin.

Dr. Pacelli with his wife, Jane, moved to Kokomo, Indiana in 1977. He had a successful Chiropractic practice for over fourteen years before extending the practice to Lafayette, Indiana. While in Kokomo he and his wife also established two health food stores. Together, they introduced the community to a better way of health for the family through eating nutritional whole organic foods, and preventative care.
Dr. Pacelli continued to pursue his interest in nutrition by seeking out the internationally- known biophysicist and author, Dr. Carey A. Reams. The two doctors conducted clinical research together and studied the response of body chemistry in relation to energy absorbed from food.
When Dr. Pacelli was at Palmer College, he envisioned developing a preventative Health Care Facility that would provide a variety of complementary health care services. In 1988 he established the Pacelli Chiropractic & Health Potential Complex in Lafayette, Indiana, and his vision began to take shape.
