What to Expect

Above all, you should expect to be heard and cared for

Chiropractic

First time clients seeking chiropractic care will see Dr. Quinn or Dr. Fennel for 1 full hour. This gives you ample time to discuss the particularities of your body. Dr. Quinn or Dr. Fennel will assess your standing and sitting postures, gait, and other natural positions. You will discuss any aches and pains, past or current injuries, daily habits and health cycles, and any other relevant information. (Don’t be afraid of sharing–sometimes we don't notice some information is relevant until we talk about it!)

Your doctor will then use applied kinesiology methods to pinpoint the inhibited muscles in your body and released the tension. You may experience some discomfort or pain that lasts past the end of your session, and this can happen for a few reasons:

a) some structural issues can take a few sessions to fully relax or may need recurring adjustments

b) this is your first time getting an adjustment and your body does not yet recognize the feeling

c) to release certain muscle groups, a significant amount of pressure is often required, which in some patients can lead to bruising 

Follow-up appointments will be 30-minutes long, and will continue at an individualized frequency until the issue calms down.

Check-up appointments are 15-minutes long, and can be scheduled regularly and in advance. These are essential for maintaining the improvements earned in the previous appointments. 

What is Applied Kinesiology?

AK uses manual muscle testing to evaluate structural, chemical, and neurological elements of health. By testing the strength of the muscles we can pinpoint inhibitions in connected systems. AK-based treatments may involve myofascial releasing, joint manipulation, cranial adjustments, nutrition and dietary management, counseling skills, elimination of environmental irritants or any combination of these. The body holds the answers and the dynamics of the musculoskeletal system are how we find them. 

Who is chiropractic for?

The short answer is: almost anyone. Though most people see chiropractors for structural issues and injury recovery, it can help with much more than just musculoskeletal complaints. We have seen success in patients dealing with migraines, anxiety, sleep troubles, digestive issues, vertigo and balance issues, nerve damage, chronic pain, and more.

Functional Medicine

For first-time clients seeking functional medicine care, we recommend booking a free phone consultation. The consultation is a good time to get a feel for our practice and give our team time to contemplate your ailment. We may schedule your first appointment on this day or Dr. Fennel may order some lab work for you. These lab results will come to our office; we will call you to make your first appointment when we get them (usually 1-3 weeks depending on the tests).

On your first appointment, you will see your doctor for 1 full hour. During this hour, you will discuss the results of your lab work (if applicable) and give further details on your health.  This could include aches and pains, trends you've noticed, daily habits, emotional wellbeing, and any other relevant information. This gives you ample time to discuss the particularities for your body and lifestyle, your recent lab work (or compare to old lab work), and any health goals you want to reach. It is a good idea to bring any current supplements or medicines with you, but not required. Treatment may include minerals, herbs, vitamins, diet changes, detoxification, chiropractic adjustments, massages, light therapy, lifestyle changes, or some combination of these. This is completely dependent on the patient and their particular needs. 

Follow-up appointments will be 30-minutes long, and will continue at an individualized frequency until the issue calms down. Keep close track of your changes and progress.

Check-up appointments are 15-minutes long as needed and can be scheduled regularly and in advance.

Who is Functional Medicine for?

Functional medicine is for anyone, although many of our patients are those who have been seeing specialist after specialist for years to treat complicated issues and have found themselves in the same cycles over an over again. Functional medicine practitioners avoid putting on band-aids to treat your symptoms; the goal is to stop the symptom from happening in the first place by determining the root cause. We see patients with autoimmune diseases, hormone imbalances, chronic pain, GI complications like IBS or candida, depression and anxiety, migraines and headaches, thyroid issues, sleep problems, cardiac issues, compromised immunity, and more.  

Massage at Ozark Holistic Ceneter

Getting a massage here at Ozark Holistic Center is different from what you might get at a big massage company. Here, we are client-focused and take a clinical approach. We view it as our job not just to help you relax, but to really heal you. We want to address the issues you're noticing in your life, whether that's recovery from an injury, improved sleep, or releasing body tension. We offer a variety of styles and all of our therapists are trained to work with you and respond to your needs. Massage sessions are either 60, 90, or 30 minutes.

Swedish Massage

A Swedish massage focuses on relaxation. With medium pressure, our massage therapists can help relieve tension in stubborn areas and ease you into a state of comfort and full-body relaxation. Please tell your practitioner about any allergies you may have before the session get under way.

Heated body mat and essential oils included.

Available for 60 or 90 minute slots.

Deep Tissue Massage

A deep tissue massage is usually geared toward pain relief and myofascial releasing. Our deep tissue massages include care of the whole body, but be sure that during your visit you communicate with your practitioner about any problem areas that may need more attention. Deep tissue massages can induce intense relaxation, improve mobility and flexibility, decrease headaches and GI issues, improve symptoms of depression and anxiety, help with chronic aches and pains, and improve lymphatic and blood circulation. 

Soreness is natural. Be sure to rest and drink lots of water afterward. 

Heated body mat and essential oils included.

Available for 60 or 90 minute slots.

Cranial-Sacral Therapy

A cranial-sacral massage is meant to stimulate flow of cerebral-spinal fluid (CSF). The CSF is an essential part of how the brain communicates with the rest of the body, sends and receives nutrients, and cleans out waste products. This is an often overlooked element of health. Improving CSF flow has been shown to improve sleep quality and consistency, breathing and circulation, GI issues, cognition and memory, decrease headaches, and improve organ health. Cranial-sacral massages are administered while the client is clothed and utilizes a very light touch.

Available for 60 minute slots.

Prenatal Massage

Massage for pregnant bodies. Only therapists certified in prenatal massage can administer this type. Prenatal massages can help the specific aches and pains of pregnancy. They can address neck, back, and foot pain as well as GI complications, sleep, anxiety. These are also helpful for clients who have recently had their babies, are experiencing pregnancy-related or post-partum emotional distress.

Heated body pad, pregnancy pillow, and essential oils included.

Be sure to rest and drink plenty of water afterward.

For these massages, only Evey can be booked.

Available for 60 minute slots.

Condition-Specific Session

Only need a quick touch-up to deal with recurring problem areas? Our condition-specific sessions can help you with pain relief when you only have 30-miniutes to spare or are on budget. These sessions are ideal for chiropractic clients needing a little more care to help solve an issue.

Available for 30 minute slots.

Acupuncture at Ozark Holistic Center

First time clients seeking acupuncture care will see Jessica for 90 minutes. This gives you ample time to discuss the particularities of your body. Jessica will assess any relevant information about your aches and pains, past or current injuries, daily habits and health cycles, and any other relevant information. This detailed health history combined with a physical exam and a discussion of your goals and concerns will lead to a unique treatment plan. (Don’t be afraid of sharing–sometimes we don't notice some information is relevant until we talk about it!) Other related therapies may be included in your treatment plan, such as cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, and herbal remedies.

Follow-up appointments will be 1 hour long, and will continue at an individualized frequency until the issue calms down. Keep close track of your changes and progress.

Who is Acupuncture for?

Acupuncture can help a wide variety of health complaints including pain reliefsoothing arthritis symptoms, reducing frequency of headaches and migraines, addressing hormonal imbalances, menstrual or menopausal complications, low stamina, sleep issues, digestive complications, anxiety, depression, nerve issues, insomnia, allergies, and much more. With precise actions, it promotes natural healing and can enhance recuperative power, immunity, support physiological and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a plethora of medical problems.

How to prepare for your Acupuncture appointment

For the best treatment results, keep a few things in mind. You should do your best to: show up on time, avoid eating a large meal before your visit, wear loose, comfortable clothing, discuss any questions or concerns each visit, and refrain from overexertion, drugs, or alcohol for at least six hours after treatment. Follow your treatment plan between visits and keep all of your appointments (each visit builds upon the previous ones). Your actions are a key component of your treatment plan. Focusing on your health and committing to a healthy lifestyle are the best steps you can take for your well-being. Together, we can heal your ailments and help you achieve harmony and balance. Even after your symptoms are resolved, acupuncture can assist you in maintaining your health, and possibly prevent future complications. The more you incorporate acupuncture and TCM into your life, the more you’ll learn to nurture your body, mind and spirit.

How does Acupuncture work?

To treat any imbalances, fine, sterile needles will be inserted at specific acupuncture points along the meridian pathways.  It is safe and painless; insertion of the needles unblocks obstructions and rebalances flow. We concentrate on acupuncture points related to specific organs, based on your unique issues and symptoms. The goal is that, when this is done, Qi can freely circulate throughout the body, providing adequate nourishment to cells, organs, glands, tissues and muscles. This helps to eliminate pain, restore balance and harmony, as well as elevate the body's resilience and ability to heal itself—ultimately leading to optimal health and well-being.

Light Therapy at Ozark Holistic Center

Infrared Sauna sessions are 40 minutes long.  Unlike most spa saunas, an infrared sauna produces infrared light and dry heat at around 145 degrees. We offer a private room, cool towels, and cold Mountain Valley Spring Water to accompany your sessions.

HALO sessions are 15 minutes long. For HALO patients, we recommend 2-3 visits a week to receive maximum benefits. 

Who is Light Therapy for?

Light therapy can offer a wide variety of benefits and is often used to compliment and enhance other paired treatments. Light waves are able to penetrate the skin at varying levels to simulate cell activity. Both infrared light and blue light offer a variety of healing properties. Both are noninvasive, no contact, mild healing techniques.

Why use Infrared?

Our private sitting-style sauna maintains a temperature of about 145 degrees.  Infrared light waves penetrate the skin and excite cell activity all over the body. This excitement stimulates ATP production in the cells, creating a body state similar to exercise. You will notice a higher heart rate, stronger breathing, and often a clarity of mind. This combined with about 40 minutes of exposure to high temperatures creates an intense, cleansing sweat--and when we sweat, we release toxins that have built up in the body and increase circulation.  Infrared light has been shown to aid in detoxification, weight loss, cardiac health, sleep, immunity, and muscle recovery.

Why use HALO?

Blue light waves are very narrow and able to penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate cell activity. The light first passes through vials of botanicals with a range of restorative properties. We've seen results from the HALO with skin issues including  psoriasis, eczema, scar tissue recovery, and other issues like sleep health, pain management, nerve issues, energy levels, and chronic fatigue.
