Our mission is to spread the power of holistic perinatal and pediatric care

Our Story

Kelayi Chiropractic & Wellness Boutique is a Black-owned, women-led company located in Alexandria, Virginia. We are on a mission to spread the power of holistic care during perinatal and pediatric periods in order to change the health trajectory of children in communities that need it the most.

We serve our clients by providing a safe, nurturing, all encompassing space. Here at Kelayi mothers and their children acquire birthing resources, nutritional guidance, and holistic care.

Kelayi (Ka-lie), meaning “from above” in Amharic, a native language in Ethiopia, was established in honor of Tayework Abebe, better known as “Akole.” Akole, a beloved uncle and father, encouraged Kelayi’s founder, Dr. Betel Aklilu, to always dream big. This organization is a dream fulfilled, a dream inspired by a man who grew wings.

We all have someone “Kelayi” who motivates us to love and live! Here at Kelayi we are committed to supporting a community of lifelong dreamers!
