Paul Ralston D.C.
Hi, my name is Dr. Paul Ralston, my natural health and wellness journey began back in high school as a member of our Olympic weightlifting team. I was constantly searching for natural ways to maintain the extremely demanding physical training involved in my sport through nutrition and proper recovery methods.
After high school, I enlisted in the Army National Guard and attended undergrad at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, majoring in community health and exercise science. Following my undergrad studies, I enrolled in chiropractic college at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, where I graduated with a degree in human biology and doctor of chiropractic degree in 2003.
In October of 2003, I moved to Wisconsin and opened my first chiropractic practice in Muskego. I spent the next seven years becoming involved in the community and developing a successful practice. In 2010, I moved a few miles down the road to Hales Corners and joined a group practice, Healthwise Chiropractic. I spent the next five years developing my skills as a doctor and exploring new techniques and treatment modalities. It was during this time that I became increasingly involved in the paleo community and began studying functional medicine.
In early 2016, my wife Tonya and I decided it was time to pursue our common dream of opening a wellness clinic together. We knew we wanted to offer not only chiropractic care, but we wanted to include other services such as functional medicine, skin care, and a yoga studio. We took the leap of faith together and opened One Source Wellness and Chiropractic in June of 2016. It’s been an incredible journey up to this point, and we are excited to finally bring our dream to reality and look forward to changing lives together and guiding patients along the path of wellness. In my time away from the office, I enjoy spending time with our four kids, playing guitar, and the occasional Olympic weightlifting or crossfit competition.
AESTHETICIAN / YOGA INSTRUCTOR
My decision to become an aesthetician was inspired by desire for women to feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside, and that beauty begins with healthy skin. Everyone's skin is unique and will respond to products and treatments differently, therefore it is my job to educate women on their own path towards healthy skin.
Although my treatments are individualized and results-driven, they are also relaxing and stress relieving. My philosophy on skin is that healthy, beautiful skin comes from the inside out. My goal is to help everyone age gracefully. I try to keep current in the latest skin care treatments and tools. In addition to my holistic philosophy on skin health, I've been in the medical aesthetics arena for over 15 years. This experience gives me the unique perspective to evaluate and give appropriate recommendations.
My yoga journey began in 2003. I began taking yoga classes to help with my lower back pain. Being a mother of a special needs child made me realize how important it was to take care of myself; my body, my mind, and my spirit. Practicing yoga helped me manage my stress, helped me sleep better and increased my strength and flexibility. I had such a positive, life changing experience, that I started my first training to become a registered yoga instructor (RYT) in 2005 and have continued taking courses ever since. Every BODY needs yoga. My goal is to give you the skills needed to allow you to grow in your yoga practice. Our life journey is unique and yoga is a reflection of that. Becoming more mindful and finding balance on and off of our mats is an essential part of our well-being.

ESSENTIAL OILS CONSULTANT
My name is Jenny Gann-Dudgeon and my passion is educating people about wellness through essential oils! I have been using dōTERRA essential oils for over 6 years now. I was originally looking for non-toxic cleaning solutions and natural ways to address our growing family's wellness needs, and found essential oils could address all of those needs.
What I didn't realize at the time was that the oils would also be providing emotional support for my family! After two years of using essential oils for cleaning, wellness, and emotional support, I felt that others needed to know that therapeutic essential oils are an affordable option to the conventional ways of approaching their health.
I began my business over 4 years ago, and have enjoyed significant growth over that time! My vision is simple: To create a team of people who help others with their health and wellness goals. I teach regular classes on the basics of essential oils; what they are, how to use them safely, and most importantly, I help you find your own solutions for you and your family's health goals. It is very empowering to be the provider of healing for yourself and family. The oils are a wonderful tool in your "tool box" to a more natural way of living!!!
I will be teaching monthly classes and scheduling personal consultations. I look forward to meeting you!
