Glow's resident naturopath, Dr. Rachel Erickson, is a licensed primary doctor who focuses on the health of the whole person, treating not just the symptoms but the root causes of interconnected physical and emotional ailments. Depending on your needs and her diagnosis, she might recommend nutritional changes, herbal supplementation, or 50 push-ups "right here, right now." The good doctor is particularly adept at treating digestive and skin complaints, endocrine disorders, and chronic disease. She also has a passion for women's health—mitigating the discomforts of PMS, menopause, cervical dysplasia, and bad romances.
The staff at Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic believe that, because it's the body's communication center, the spine’s condition can affect the health of the entire body. During treatment sessions, chiropractors correct the alignment of vertebrae with up-to-date techniques—such as motion palpitation, which detects dysfunctional joints, and active release, which treats overused muscles with motion techniques—that are gentler than past methods and more effective than propping patients up with puppet strings. Other corrective techniques, such as exercises and massage therapy, retrain the muscles to support correct alignment. The clinic specializes in rehabilitating clients with injuries from accidents and other traumas, though they can help patients of all ages and backgrounds maintain good spinal health.
When it comes to muscle aches, the worst knots like to hide deep inside tissue, out of reach of the average massage therapist. Fortunately for his clients at Flourish Chiropractic, Isak Swearingen isn't the average massage therapist. The former athlete and deep-tissue massage specialist eases these painful kinks with Active Release Technique (ART). Aided by a special massage tool, these treatments stretch affected muscles through their full range of motion, leaving clients looser and less afflicted by pain. Swearingen's massage sessions relieve symptoms of numerous afflictions, including repetitive stress injuries, sports injuries, and stress-induced pain.
At Evergreen Chiropractic, Doctors of Chiropractic Wayne Cissell and Russell Kun are joined by two full-time massage therapists in order to soothe not only spines but also tense musculature. Licensed massage practitioners Matthew Gaylord and Anthony Michaels customize sessions depending on their clients’ individual needs, blending Swedish, myofascial, and trigger-point therapies while the clients relax on soft treatment tables. Evergreen Chiropractic’s overarching goal is to strengthen bodies’ natural healing abilities, consequently reducing patients’ dependence upon prescription meds, surgeries, and diets limited to juiced oranges and grilled band-aids.
CenterPoint is founded on belief the body is dynamic and powerful and if we fuel and service the body correctly it will perform at it's peak. We also believe the body has limits and might need more than just one type of care to recover, so we like to incorporate several types of care based on the patients needs.
