The staff at Oxybaric LLC aim for one goal and one goal only: to improve your health through hyperbaric-chamber sessions. The small, enclosed chambers fill up with ambient air while the patient breathes pure oxygen through a mask. This infuses blood with an intense dose of O2 and has been known to help with ailments such as migraines, fatigue, and sports injuries. Read on to learn a little more about the other possible benefits of hyperbaric-chamber sessions:
Healthier than antibiotics: oxygen-rich environments aren't conducive to bacterial survival and just might rouse white blood cells to fight off infections.
Easy on the joints: the infusion of oxygen stimulates the body's own anti-inflammatory properties, easing arthritis pain, headaches, and anything else caused by inflamation
Trade in your old blood vessels: taking a spin in the chamber can help your body create brand new capillaries. What you do with them is your own business, but usually they grow up to help repair and maintain injured and healthy tissues in the body.
While playing hockey at the age of 18, Dr. Shawn Martin began experiencing pain in his lower back. A natural athlete, Martin sought help from his family doctor, but
found only minor relief from his pains. It wasn’t until his grandfather took him to a chiropractor that Martin found relief from his condition, as well as a new calling in life––to help others to live lives free of pain.
After studying at Palmer College of Chiropractic, he spent seven months traveling to Thailand, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Peru living as a local and delivering chiropractic care to hundreds who may not have had access to it otherwise. Today, his practice sees patients as young as 1 day old and as wise as 97 years of age, who seek out his staff's expertise in everything from spinal adjustments and active therapies to massage. Holding degrees in chiropractic and biology, and certified with the Acupuncture Society of America, Dr. Martin also enjoys educating the community through health classes and staged readings of his spine-theme haikus.
Doctor of Chiropractic Troy Willis helms Live Well Chiropractic and Lifestyle, where he teams up with life strategist Kelly Cline and a staff of fitness gurus to help customers live well. Dr. Troy was initially introduced to chiropractic while in high school, where he was intrigued by the whole-body approach to health and wellness. Now, having practiced for more than 9 years, he emphasizes an approach that begins with listening to the patient's needs and concerns before recommending one of the clinic's many services or an evening of smashing beer bottles on the side of a building. Clients can opt for a hands-free massage with jade rollers, chiropractic treatments to realign spines, personally tailored nutrition programs, or group fitness classes.

Working as a paramedic for 10 years, Beth Thompson witnessed the damage of unhealthy eating habits up close and personal. With a passion for wellness burnished by her experiences in that job, she earned her teacher’s license to show young people how to preempt diet-caused illness. That endeavor eventually led her to create Target Metabolism, a health-and-wellness company that champions weight loss through accurate analysis of the body and caloric tracking. Beth and her team of registered dieticians work with clients to create personal portraits of their metabolic needs, and they delve into thinking past carbohydrates and focusing on a “calories in vs. calories out” metric. This caloric count is based on the client's specific metabolism, rather than the average metabolism of the client's age, weight, height, and gender group. In addition to dieticians, the staff includes massage therapists that offer specific treatments to help the body relax during the weight-loss process. Modalities include hot stone and aromatherapy.
