Shane Hoefsloot devoted more than 25 years of his life to working as a registered nurse in more than 15 hospitals spread across three different countries. These decades of experience sparked his passion for discovering holistic treatment modalities, which, unlike traditional medical procedures, focus on restoring a sense of balance to the body and treating symptoms as well as their underlying causes. This holistic approach forms the basis of Shane's philosophy at Wellness Northwest. Using computerized scanning devices, Shane and his staff take clients' bioenergetic readings, searching for the sorts of imbalances that can interfere with the body's normal function and can even facilitate the onset of illnesses. Wellness Northwest's team strives to correct these imbalances by using everything from plant stem cell treatments to pulsed magnetic therapy, which jump-start the body at the cellular level and help restore the unhampered flow of its natural energies. Additionally, personalized nutritional programs explain the importance of embracing a diet composed of local, organic, and nutrient-dense foods that are low on the glycemic index and devoid of toxins such as packing peanuts.
The staff at Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic believe that, because it's the body's communication center, the spine’s condition can affect the health of the entire body. During treatment sessions, chiropractors correct the alignment of vertebrae with up-to-date techniques—such as motion palpitation, which detects dysfunctional joints, and active release, which treats overused muscles with motion techniques—that are gentler than past methods and more effective than propping patients up with puppet strings. Other corrective techniques, such as exercises and massage therapy, retrain the muscles to support correct alignment. The clinic specializes in rehabilitating clients with injuries from accidents and other traumas, though they can help patients of all ages and backgrounds maintain good spinal health.
As a child, Doctor of Chiropractic Benjamin Charlton was taught to eat well, exercise, and store his toys in ergonomic cases. It was these holistic principles that eventually led him to pursue a career in chiropractic care and open the Inline Wellness Center, a practice named Best Chiropractor by 425 Magazine in 2009 and 2010. Having played rugby at national and regional levels while attending chiropractic school, Dr. Charlton knows that the human body needs proper care in order to function healthily. That’s why he makes it his mission to meet each client’s health concerns and help them meet their wellness goals.
Along with Dr. Charlton’s chiropractic expertise, the family-oriented clinic offers massage therapy. The Inline staff customizes treatments to address each client’s specific therapeutic needs and specializes in deep-tissue massage and the treatment of muscle injuries.
Acupuncturist Dr. Ke Zang of ACI Clinic & Wellness Center has been holistically addressing ailments for more than 20 years. And even though time has passed, he still treats patients today using many of the same traditional techniques he practiced in Chinese hospitals. Only now, Dr. Zang isn't working alone. He's joined by chiropractic physician Dr. Allison Zang-Greene and a team of fellow healers, all of whom seek out drug-free solutions for clients' migraines, chronic pain, digestive issues, and other maladies.
The field of chiropractic therapy is based on the idea that the body can heal itself, but it needs a little help doing it sometimes. Doctor of Chiropractic Eric Hansen strives to unlock this potential by keeping spines in alignment and nervous systems balanced. Spinal adjustment is only one element of this body-mending toolbox, as the clinic also calls on extremity adjustments, gait analyses, rehabilitative exercises, and massage therapy to bring patients back to a pain-free existence.
Performed by licensed therapists Nataliya Vabishchevich and ReBecca Lavin, massage treatments not only reduce stress, tension, and the likelihood of spontaneously combusting during routine meetings, but it also bolsters rehab regimens and boosts immunity. Like every treatment at Eastside Life Chiropractic, the massage therapists customize their services to the needs of each client, adjusting pressure, focus, and technique to achieve the best possible result.
It?s a chiropractic office, but there?s no unsettling back cracking or jostling adjustments at inBalance Wellness Center. Instead, lead physician Dr. McFadden uses a genlte, but effective, chiropractic method: the upper-cervical technique. By simply focusing on the top vertebra in the neck, the Atlas, the doctor can gently correct problems throughout the entire spine and nervous system without using sharp spinal twists or forcing clients to drop the giant globe they are balancing on their neck. Once the body is rebalanced, it can revert to its natural homeostatic state.
In addition to offering spinal services, inBalance Wellness Center also provides on-site brain-wave balancing. Certified by the Brain State Technologies as a Brain Wave technologist, Mary McFadden uses neuro-feedback technology to help the body heal itself. Massage, weight-loss, and nutritional services round out the center?s holistic modalities.
