Blending Western medical techniques with Eastern treatments and traditional Chinese medicine, Marion Chiropractic Clinic's Dr. Todd Joachim aims to improve the health and lives of his patients through education, understanding, and natural solutions to health troubles. A Marion native, Dr. Joachim earned his degree in Chicago at National University of Health Sciences’ College of Chiropractic before retuning to his home state, where he has tended to families for nearly a decade. His dedication to continuing education has allowed him to master new techniques along the way in an ongoing effort to offer the best, most up-to-date care to people and unusually tense massage chairs. His studies have led him to supplement his chiropractic roster with a wide range of services, including acupuncture, therapeutic exercise, and microcurrent therapy—which uses nearly imperceptible currents to help relax muscle spasms.
Dr. Pamer uses digital-thermography technology and digital x-rays to assess his patients’ nervous-system function so that his adjustments are spot on. The adjustments aim to alleviate chronic back pain, arthritis, and even carpal tunnel syndrome. When not in the office, Dr. Pamer keeps on helping people alleviate their pain—he even traveled to India to dispense his chiropractic skills.
Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack conquered myriad fields and the skies before pursuing the art of chiropractics. After graduating from college, Tomshack became an officer in the U.S. Air Force, received his MBA, and finally graduated summa cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Calling upon his newly mastered spinal savvy, Tomshack opened his own practice, whose enormous success led to a gradual expansion and eventually became the nationwide network that exists today. At each HealthSource location, teams of licensed chiropractors, massage therapists, and physical trainers work in unison to help provide comprehensive care, restore ailing statures, and lead masterful renditions of the hokey pokey.
Beneath the Renew Spa's logo, three words stand side-by-side: Art. Science. Aesthetics. Each has its place in the spa's palette of facials, laser treatments, cosmetic injections, and massages. With an artful eye, the all-female staff adorns and protects faces with mineral makeup from Jane Iredale. During facial peels, aestheticians employ the science of acidity to renew skin cells and refresh memories of chemistry class fieldtrips to the spa. Renew Spa is also home to a versatile fleet of lasers that technicians use to slow hair growth, tighten the skin, and shrink down fat cells.
At Footprints to Wellness, owner Paula Jurko knows that in order to take the right steps toward wellness, one starts with the feet. She helps alleviate pain and symptoms of health concerns by applying pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to specific organs in the body. She also preforms raindrop therapy, which applies nine essential oils into the spine and feet to help the body align structurally and electrically. Along with raindrop therapy, she preforms Reiki to balance the body and release tension.
