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.
During sessions, clients meet with a chiropractor for a consultation, where they can discuss their medical history, treatment questions, and favorite vertebrae. After a wellness exam charts current bodily health, a treatment plan is crafted to address any specific maladies. Finally, a massage therapist banishes aches and tension with massage strokes that weed out knots found deep within tissues. Since each clinic runs its own practice, processes can vary depending on location.
Todd Hymel was chugging along, getting his bachelor’s degree from LSU when the universe intervened. While meditating with his friends in Santa Fe, Todd had a vision that directed him to study acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Packing up just his bike, tent, sleeping bag, and some summer clothes, Todd set out for Seattle to study at Bastyr University. Acupuncture Clinic NW represents the culmination of Todd’s journey, where he and his fellow practitioners balance bodies using traditional Eastern medicine. Clients can seek solace from pain through traditional acupuncture, cupping, herbal remedies, or bodywork that blends acupressure with shiatsu.
Doctor of Chiropractic Steven Kaplan doesn't deal in the symptoms of ailments; he deals with the ailments themselves. He employs x-rays, thorough examinations, and nearly three decades of experience to track down pain at its source, which much of the time is the back or neck. It's here where he hunts for impinged nerves in the spinal column that can disrupt the communication between the brain and body, leading not only to sore backs and stiff necks but also, possibly, to trouble sleeping and poor digestion. Once located, he administers such drug-free, noninvasive techniques as adjustment or spinal decompression.
