Chiropractor | Owner
Dr. Clark Pitcairn started his journey in chiropractic as a patient. At the age of 7, he received his first chiropractic adjustment. In turn he remained a patient due to the profound changes it made in his life. As a child, Dr. Clark had a chronic upper respiratory problem. His cough was so bad that it became a bit embarrassing for him in grade school. After starting chiropractic treatments, his cough began to lessen and eventually went away completely. Due to that care, he was able to run around and play sports with all the other kids without wheezing. His mother saw the benefit of having her kids under regular care so she made it a priority for all three of her children. As a result, today, Dr. Clark and his two sisters are all chiropractors. Dr. Clark’s interests include hiking/backpacking, rock climbing, snowboarding and surfing. He currently lives in NE Portland with his beautiful wife Julia and four wonderful children Dylan, Brody, Micah and Tanner.

Whether it is a new injury, a chronic ailment or part of a wellness routine, he will bring his education and experience to each session. Knowing that not all clients are built the same, he will tailor his treatment techniques to your specific needs.

Laura received her training in massage at East West College and graduated in 2012. While at East West she was educated in Deep Tissue Massage, Craniosacral Therapy, Tui Na and Swedish massage. Since her time at East West, she has continued education in Craniosacral Therapy (CST) and Medical massage. She values a scientific approach to her work as a therapist, while also incorporating the deep sense of listening that comes from extended training in CST. She acknowledges that every person’s body has different tissue density, different patterns of tightness, and different paths to unwinding tension. She then works to actively construct her technique to where her client is at that day. Finding a particular fascination with many of the common postural issues faced by our modern lifestyles, lead her to spending much of her time studying exercises and techniques to improve the lives of my clients.
She is passionate about working with populations who have experienced whiplash, TMJ dysfunctions, adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder), low back pain, plantar fasciitis, recurrent headaches, insomnia, anxiety, and depression. She has also have worked with the pre/postnatal population for many years. Recently she was accepted to the doctor of Physical Therapy program at Pacific University, where she intends to further her understanding of the body. She spends most of her spare time being active outside tending to her garden or backpacking the North Cascades. She can’t get enough of the outdoors!
