Eugene Wellness Center is a place for healing. The studio is home to any number of holistic therapies, including chiropractic treatments, massages, whole-body vibration, and aromatherapy. Complementing all of these is a team of experts eager to teach about the nutritional supplements that support healthy living. Drop by for a detoxifying infrared sauna session, which assists with weight loss and boosts metabolism, or try a deep-tissue massage designed to relieve chronic aches.
Dr. Jerry Evans leads a caring crew at Evans Chiropractic Group, drawing from more than 20 years of experience dekinking vertebrae to finesse skeletal structures ailing from work injuries, sports-induced aches, and everyday boo-boos. Spreading the treatments over two visits, the initial session begins with a consultation to discuss problems and pains before the chiropractic exam realigns spines and unspools tightly wound physiques like a yo-yo running away from its shadow. The second appointment provides time to converse about the doctor's findings as well as develop a pain-management game plan, if necessary. A 60-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage concludes the healing meeting as a trained muscle kneader loosens limbs and fluffs bone cushions for a pillowy soft feel.
Dawn and Troy share more than just their marriage—they’re both licensed massage therapists and owners of Momentum Therapies. As a family and a business, they infuse warmth and hospitality into their healing sessions. While guests relax on thermotherapeutic BioMats––which are included with every treatment––Troy can promote relaxation and relieve pain from back, neck, and sciatic problems with his signature trigger-point-based integrative massage, or Dawn can access lower-layer aches with her custom blend of myofascial bodywork.
It's simple: stiff muscles don't want to move. That's why massage therapist Jason Lee descends on tension with four types of massage modalities, loosening muscles so they can range through the full swirl of motions. Myofascial release, for instance, breaks up internal scar tissue that holds muscle fibers in place, and deep-tissue pressures deliver cross-grain strokes to ease out movement-impeding muscle knots.
The licensed massage therapists at Chi Spa banish tension with traditional Chinese techniques performed in a modern, serene setting. Staffers usher in a sense of wellness from limb to limb by manipulating the body with Eastern-inspired therapies, such as ionic footbaths, acupuncture, and far-infrared sauna.
When David Obando was 16 years old, he weighed 240 pounds and had a body fat percentage of 28%. Something had to give. With the help of a new workout routine and a change in diet, he was able to lose and keep off more than 60 pounds. Today, David is a certified personal trainer and massage therapist, as well as a master Pilates instructor and corrective exercise specialist. In the comfort of his private studio, clients can solicit David for weight loss advice and athletic performance enhancement, or request a therapeutic massage with flowing Swedish strokes or deep-tissue pressure.
