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.
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.
Whereas many massage practitioners stick to kneading backs and shoulders, Steve Brodsky approaches the healing process by working with the entire body. A certified Breema practitioner, Steve manipulates his clients' arms and legs, moving them into stretches and poses that promote total-body alignment. He also performs Thai massages, as well as therapeutic massages that can help bodies recover from days spent tumbling down steps at the amusement park’s stairway ride.
At SpringWell Health Center, each member of the staff contributes something to the shared goal of fostering wellness. That includes a Doctor of Chiropractic, as well as the center's massage therapist, acupuncturists, yoga instructor, family nurse practitioner, and nutrition consultant. Complementary services are also available.
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.
