“We have a passion for not only helping you feel better, but for educating you on how you ended up in this pain and how to prevent it in the future.”

Meet Dr. Beth Washak, OBCE #5052

It was a very warm day in Hyderabad, India when I fell in love with family chiropractic. I was in my final year at Palmer College of Chiropractic and I was on my clinic abroad trip where our class provided complementary care to low income individuals as student doctors. My second day a young woman came into the clinic white as a sheet and she was obviously in an extreme amount of pain. Through translator I was able to discern that she had given birth four months previous and had had “family-planning surgery” afterwards.

Since that time, she had not been able to sit or lie down due to pain. In addition to her duties as a mother, she was sleep deprived because she could not find a comfortable position so she would prop herself in a corner and try desperately to sleep. Upon assessment I found that her pelvis had a very pronounced misalignment. I adjusted her pelvis which gave a loud release and she yelped. Being an inexperienced student- doctor, I began to panic but then I watched as she proudly sat up then sat down then stood up and sat down repeatedly and was crying tears of joy. She and I shared an embrace and we both cried and then she left and expected never to see her again.

The very next day she came back with every member of her family from aunts to grandmas to nieces, I had the pleasure of meeting every woman in her life who would make the 6-mile journey to our clinic. We assessed and treated everyone and all parted with smiles. Though I may have changed her life, this young woman had given a direction to mine. I wanted to offer care to families and create a community around healing in the home.

I have had the great honor of creating a space here in Eugene that aids in this mission.  When I am not in this healing space, I am playing with my sons Jaxson and Henry, hiking, camping or doing yoga.  I pour myself into learning about natural living as it is truly my passion.

Meet Liz Fifield, LMT #18384

Liz Fifield, Oregon Massage Therapist LMT#18384It was a sunny day in August of 2011 in Portland when I received my license from the state of Oregon and became an LMT (licensed massage therapist). I graduated from East West College of the Healing Arts in December of 2010 with a 4.0, which I maintained for the entirety of the 800-hour program.

I had never been an excellent student until I entered the massage program. I finally found a subject that still to this day peaks my interest and inspires me to seek and explore more information and skills to better my practice. I was always a “jane of all trades, master of none”. I spent my time dappling in a variety of different fields but not really finding the one that inspired me to dive deeper. Then, I found the joy of massage through a co-worker who was in the massage program at East West. After my first massage session at the school’s clinic, I was hooked.

In my practice, I use my calm/grounded personality to help my clients relax and feel comfortable enough to release their bodies and minds to the work they need and, in some cases, fall asleep. Naps are underrated.  I have been told that I’m an excellent listener and have intuitive hands. My hands guide me to the spots on the body that need the most attention and my clients appreciate this ability as sometimes we don’t know an area is sore until it is worked on.
