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 the island. In addition to being a massage therapist, I also am an 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 wellbeing!

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 for improving others’ quality of life brought me to 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 where they are at the treatment time.

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

Alex Poling

Licensed Massage Therapist

I came to massage somewhat accidentally. Having completed my undergraduate Psychology degree at the University of Oregon, I had plans to attend grad school and work in human trafficking intervention. Massage school was something that both seemed like a useful skill and way to get a job outside of the food service industry, but the more I learned more about bodywork the more I was amazed by the healing power of touch. Seven years later I’ve had the privilege of helping clients with chronic conditions improve their quality of life; reintroduced safe touch to clients living with PTSD; and taught classes for licensed therapists, massage students, and the general public. I’ve pursued training in a number of techniques, including Hawaiian hot stone massage, Lomi Lomi (a Hawaiian deep tissue technique), cupping, Gan Kroot (or Gua Sha) – as well as applied kinesiology modalities such as Touch for Health and The Emotion Code – all with the intent of honing my skills to better help clients reach their own health and wellness goals. 

When I’m not nerding out about bodywork, you’ll generally find me planning grand adventures with friends, brewing kombucha, writing historical fiction, or spoiling my cat.

MARIA ERSKINE

Licensed Massage Therapist

Massage therapy has always fascinated me by bringing a sense of unity, ease, and wellness to the body. Providing a safe, comfortable, and accessible space and practice is a key aspect of that. Through manual therapy and a welcoming environment, some of the greatest growth and healing is possible. As a bodywork therapist I love being able to be a part of that process. 

Along with Swedish Massage, I practice hot stone, scraping, deep tissue and Thai self massage techniques.
