While working in the medical field for 13 years, Jamie VanDam discovered alternative healing techniques that she found less aggressive than traditional Western methods. Her fascination with balancing chakras and unblocking meridians to soothe both the body and mind led her to pursue level-three status as a reiki master. With a blend of reiki and cranio-sacral therapy, she flushes out bodily toxins and alleviates back pain, headaches, and stress by applying gentle pressure to troubled regions. She also helps clients find inner and outer peace with raindrop therapy, essential oils, and ear candling. When she isn't remedying discomfort, Jamie is teaching classes in the healing arts and donating her time as a Hospice volunteer.

Consultations may involve analyzing nutrition to explain unbalance and discomfort or peering into the irises to gleam sources of weakness. Heavenly Healings also teach guests to treat themselves with classes, including a primer on how essential oils can aid in meditation or fixing the skeleton's squeaky hinges.

When chiropractor Dr. John Owings adjusts a spine, he works with a partner who has no spine at all: the FDA-cleared ProAdjuster.

All his practice’s treatments eschew drugs and surgery, instead focusing on wellness fundamentals that can be addressed non-invasively. The team realigns spines, bolsters energy flow, and facilitates proper nutrition through meal plans, which help patients avoid unhealthy dishes such as mac ‘n’ cheese, or Ebola ‘n’ glass shards.
