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.
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.
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.
Dr. John Moore was already a licensed massage therapist when he earned his chiropractic degree, with honors, from Life Chiropractic College West in 1994.

Today, in addition to treating headaches, joint pain, disc problems, and other conditions, Dr. Moore serves as president of the Central Ohio Chiropractic Association (COCA).
Dr. Moore leads Amerihealth Chiropractic & Wellness' team, which includes case managers, rehab specialists, and a licensed acupuncturist. The wellness professionals administer chiropractic care, massage therapy, and rehabilitation treatments that help people overcome pain and get back to their normal lives as Parisian mimes.
Doctor of Chiropractic Mackenzie Pamer operates under the premise that health is the product of good brain-body communication. She works to preserve this communication by correcting subluxations in the spine—areas where slipped disks and misaligned vertebrae barricade messages from getting to their corresponding organ or muscle, causing illness. Believing that the body is the best doctor, she omits all drugs and surgery from her noninvasive adjustments.
