Dr. Jessica Bossuyt to open downtown practice

By Per Peterson

A familiar face will soon be gracing downtown Tracy and filling an empty building that has seen its share of turnover in the last year.

Dr. Jessica (Peterson) Bossuyt will open an extension of her Elysian Chiropractic business next month in the JMar building on the southern end of the downtown area on 3rd St.

“It’s really cool,” Bossuyt said. “I have a lot of patients from the Tracy, Walnut Grove, Westbrook areas, and it’s just really neat. I never thought I’d be so excited to be in downtown Tracy, but it honestly feels really good. Everybody’s so welcoming. I love Marshall, I live there, but it’s great to be here, too. I know so many faces here.”

A 2010 Tracy Area High School graduate, Bossuyt opened her chiropractic practice, Elysian Chiropractic in Marshall, in early 2018. After she got her degree in biology from Southwest Minnesota State University in 2014, she attended Northwestern Health Sciences University’s Chiropractic School in Bloomington. Peterson initially planned to become a medical doctor, but came to the conclusion that she wanted to do something more holistic. She said since starting in Marshall, her care there has shifted to mothers and infants.

The building Bossuyt is in the process of remodeling was formerly home to a niche retail shop that recently closed when the owner moved away from Tracy. Bossuyt said opening a business in Tracy has been on her mind for a few years, and it wasn’t until last week that she saw the building was available and ready to be leased.
