Kelly Clawson entered the field of massage therapy for one simple reason: to help people feel better. But what sounds like a straightforward goal actually requires a lot of communication and thought. Prior to sessions, Kelly asks after areas of concerns in order to shape her treatment plan. This might include using heated stones to ease knotted muscles or stimulating acupressure points to boost circulation. Ever the student, Kelly adds to her list of skills?including body scrubs and inch-loss treatments?through a constant stream of classes.

Suffering from multiple athletic injuries, Dr. Dan Anderson received treatment from his father, an osteopathic physician. The health benefits he discovered from these manipulation therapies inspired him to pursue a career in chiropractic care. Dr. Anderson has now practiced for 26 years (18 in Modesto) and uses a blend of one-on-one consultation, surface EMG tests of the muscles and nervous system, and x-rays to prescribe an individualized course of treatment for each patient. Instrument and hand adjustments maneuver bones and muscle groups into the correct formation, while nutritional advice and at-home exercise allow patients to extend their healing beyond the office and into sit-up routines wherever they have some time to kill, such as the gym or the DMV. The bilingual staff at Anderson Chiropractic and Wellness speaks English and Spanish, and the reception area’s blue walls support warm sconces that light up the room along with each posttreatment smile.
