Dr. Weber has actively pursued a healthy lifestyle since childhood. In her senior year of high school, when she came down with a cold, her mother brought her to a chiropractor for the first time. It was this chiropractor who not only helped her beat her cold, but became her inspiration to pursue her dream of helping others live as healthfully as possible—naturally.

After receiving her bachelor's in Biology from Cedarville University, Dr. Weber completed her doctorate at Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, California. Since graduation, she has continued to expand her knowledge in related fields, completing a specialty in Digestive Nutrition from Logan College of Chiropractic. She has earned a certification in Prenatal and Pediatric Chiropractic care from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

"I believe that personalized and preventive care is of the utmost importance in helping people achieve their health goals. Because physical, nutritional and emotional stress all play essential roles in overall wellness, I examine all potential causes in order to make a more holistic and accurate diagnosis and plan for helping people achieve their optimal health potential. I truly value the trust, confidence and feedback of my patients, with whom I work in partnership for better health."

In her free time, Dr. Weber enjoys sipping something warm while reading her favorite health and fashion magazines, frequenting the Chicago Art Institute and Botanic Gardens, and visiting wineries in the Pacific Northwest with her husband Daniel.

Dr. Andrea L. Shavitz attended the University of Northern Iowa earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology with an emphasis in medicine before receiving her Doctorate in Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic.  For over 10 years, she has specialized in using chiropractic, ART, massage, and nutritional supplements to help everyone from professional athletes & weekend warriors to newborns & pregnant mothers achieve an optimal level of health and wellness.

Dr. Andrea integrates a combination of therapies to treat and correct the underlying cause of the symptoms and is an Extremity and Active Release Technique (ART) practitioner, concentrating on soft tissue injuries of muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, and trapped nerves throughout the entire body.  She also utilizes Webster Technique to balance the hips and pelvis to assist in ideal fetal positioning.

“By treating the source of the problem instead of just the symptoms, the body can function as it was designed: to heal itself.  In turn, the result is a longer, healthier and more balanced life.”

In her free time she enjoys hiking, cooking, traveling, and enjoying nature with her husband and two daughters.


Sarah Fiorello, Office Manager

Dr. Sarah Weber

Sarah has been a part of the Total Balance Chiropractic family since 2013, but originally was introduced to the practice as a patient in 2011. Having suffered from debilitating headaches and migraines for almost a decade, she finally decided to try chiropractic care as a solution for her pain. After following the care plan recommended by her chiropractor, Sarah saw incredible results.  Through chiropractic care, Sarah began to understand how all stressors – nutritional, physical and emotional – take a toll on the body. Since then, Sarah has been a lover and advocate of chiropractic care; with a background in administration, her transition to the staff of Total Balance was quite a natural progression.

“It’s such a special thing to watch patients go through the healing process,” Sarah says. “It’s so rewarding to be part of that process by supporting both the patients and the doctors from start to finish.”

When not at the office, Sarah enjoys food and activities accompanied by food, reading about food at home with her two cats, making food and sharing food with others, especially her friends and her very thankful husband, David. In her previous life, she worked as a pastry cook in New York City and plans to one day open her own establishment with healthy, fun options and big, comfy mugs of chai tea.



Sarah Mauney, Chiropractic Assistant

Dr. Sarah Weber

Sarah Mauney has been part of the Total Balance Team since 2016, though she originally found the practice as a patient seeking care in 2014. Sarah has been a dancer and dance-maker since the age of four, and has suffered all the physical, nutritional, and mental stresses one associates with the dance profession. She first began receiving chiropractic care as an adolescent in her hometown of Bend, OR, and has made whole body wellness a priority since then. In fact, Sarah’s commitment to living and promoting a balanced lifestyle is so great she has pursued a certification to teach the Alexander Technique, a form of psycho-physical re-education, which she will complete in 2017.

“I believe that whole body care is achieved by looking for the source of the ailment, whether it is physical, mental or spiritual. True wellness comes from all these aspects finding a balance. It is such a privilege to witness our patients journey through this process!”

In her rare time off from work and school, Sarah likes to dance as much as possible, patron the amazing Chicago theater scene, cook, and travel with her husband, Chauncey. She would eventually like to teach dance and somatic practices at a collegiate level.
