Dr. Christopher Meeks, the practicing chiropractor at Meeks Family Chiropractic, knows that just because two patients have a condition with the same name doesn't mean they need the same treatment. He builds his treatment plans around each individual's goals and medical history. He doesn't try to solve every issue through spinal adjustments, either. While chiropractic work forms the core of his treatments, he works closely with massage therapists, personal trainers, and technicians certified in techniques such as electrical muscle stimulation, cryotherapy, and ultrasound therapy. The team works together to help patients recover from injuries, defeat chronic pain, or ward off disease.
After cultivating her holistic training and experience from colleges and private practices in England more than 25 years ago, trained therapist Jayne Bennett made the jump to the States, where she has helped clients with holistic treatments such as reflexology, reiki, and raindrop therapy for more than 13 years. Unlike America or blimps hovering over international waters, England requires therapists to have a background understanding of anatomy and physiology before they can perform reflexology treatments, so Bennett has more knowledge of the human body than many others in her field.
But her expertise isn’t limited to reflexology. She also practices the ancient Japanese art of reiki, which reduces stress with a "laying on of hands" technique, and raindrop therapy, which mimics the gentle drizzle of cloud-dwellers’ tears by dribbling nine oils across the back and feet. Essential oils distilled from leaves, stems, and bark often accompany Bennett’s sessions.
Helmed by Dr. Matthew Marcotte, the staff at HealthSource of Lewis Center works to create naturally optimal bodies with drug- and surgery-free chiropractic treatments. Dr. Marcotte and his staff draw on a wide variety of techniques to alleviate chronic pain and acute spinal aches, including multiple styles of adjustment and physiotherapy. The most recent addition to the staff is Dr. Scott Shearer, who also has 13 years of medical experience. Their team also performs spinal decompression and ultrasound therapy on backs with lingering injuries from
sports or competitive hugging. Though Dr. Marcotte particularly specializes in more medically focused services, massage therapists are also on call to lend a soothing hand.
