When JJ Pursell first arrived in Portland, she found herself without access to one of her favorites stores, a place which sold medicinal herbs. Rather than complain, she decided to open up her own store, simply named The Herb Shoppe. The venture proved successful, and she opened locations as far away as New York City to provide customers with organic and wild-crafted herbal supplements. Most recently, she and her business partner Amanda Furbee opened a second Portland location, The Herb Shoppe Pharmacy - Mississippi Ave.
Rather than dedicate the whole space to retailing herbs, the duo decided to build part of this new pharmacy as a kitchen, a move with multiple benefits. Firstly, they make many of their supplements fresh on site, bottling the herbs the very day they stock the shelves. Secondly, they use the space to lead classes, teaching students the ingredients and methodology to produce their own products.
Dr. Clark Pitcairn might have a hard time remembering the first time he ever heard about chiropractic. It was the medicine of choice for his family when he was growing up, and he has been a patient of the drug-free techniques since he was seven. At that time, he suffered from a chronic cough that went away only after completing a series of chiropractic adjustments.
Today, he and his two sisters are all chiropractors, providing the same holistic, hands-on treatments that they received as children. Dr. Pitcairn draws upon the body’s natural ability to heal itself by first examining the spine with x-rays and steady hands, locating the sources of headaches, chronic pain, and poor TV reception. Then, he un-pinches nerves by gently guiding discs and vertebra into their proper spots.
