Michelle Heitman

Licensed Massage Therapist

Originally from Illinois, I moved to Eugene a few years ago for a change of scenery and new adventures.  One of my aspirations was joining Lane Community College’s Massage Therapy Program.  Upon completion in 2014, I earned my Massage Therapy License.  I specialize in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Cupping, and Myofascial Release.

Having struggled with chronic pain in the past, I am empathetic for my clients.  Using various techniques and my intuitive touch, I strive to help my clients overcome their pain and achieve their wellness goals.

When I am not working, I enjoy seeing live music, camping, hiking, and getting lost in a good book.

Justin Oliphant

Licensed Massage Therapist

Hi! I’m Justin. I am so excited and grateful to be with such a great team here at Active Chiropractic!
My approach to therapy is as a life-long athlete who has had to overcome many injuries including whiplash, concussions, torn tendons, you name it. My practice began in 2015 on Kaua’i at the Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork. There I learned several modalities and came to really love Structural Integration and connective tissue bodywork. I also began my on-going studies in CranioSacral Therapy while on island. In addition to being a massage therapist I also am assistant teacher at Lane Community Colleges Massage Program.

Thankfully I have a loving wife and two incredible kids who keep me grounded and driving forward. My wife and I are originally from the Midwest, we love getting in the forest, hiking and running, hearing the surf and foraging for wild foods. We make wine every fall, farm with friends, and travel whenever and wherever we can.
I can’t wait to meet, work with and support you in your goals to better your health and well-being!

John Dudzic

Licensed Massage Therapist

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, I bring five plus years of experience to Active Chiropractic.  My therapeutic massage journey starts with a multitude of injuries from being a high school three sport athlete. My passion to help improve the quality of life of others brought me East West College of Natural Healing located in Portland Oregon. While attending, I focused on a strong basis of Kinesiology while specializing in Structural Integration, Deep Tissue, Swedish Massage and Thai Massage. My Bodywork style is best described by; “Deep tissue does not need to be painful, relaxation massage is not lite. It all depends on speed, style, and flow”.

Originally from a small farm town in Central New York, I bring a blue-collar work ethic to Active Chiropractic that shows up in the treatment room. I strive to create customized therapeutic treatments for each client while considering who they are at the time of the treatment.

When not at Active Chiropractic you can find me Lifting weights, Biking, Hiking, working in the wood shop, or looking for a good pinball table.
