Mountain's new holistic care clinic posted on 11/01/2021

Doctors Jason and Melanie Brown moved to Welches in 2018 to raise their five boys with greater proximity to the healthy influence of Mount Hood’s nature and outdoor activities.

The couple, who met while earning Doctor of Chiropractic degrees from the University of Western States, have owned and operated the Pure Life Clinic in northeast Portland for 15 years.

After settling into their new home on the Mountain the couple decided to expand their practice with a clinic offering their holistic health and wellness treatments in their new community.

“We realized we’ve found our forever home and now we want to have our business here,” Melanie said.

After carefully searching for the right location, the two signed a lease in April and gradually began seeing patients at their new practice, the Mountain Life Clinic, during the summer. The new clinic is located at 67195 Hwy. 26 in Welches.

“By word of mouth we’ve had nice, slow growth over the summer,” Jason said. “Now we’ve got everything in place at the clinic and we’re ready to blow it up.”

The couple’s described their new undertaking as a low-volume clinic that utilizes science-based natural medicine techniques to address patient concerns as well as examining and finding solutions for underlying barriers to optimal health.

The clinic offers chiropractic care, massage therapy and treatment plans for auto injury, pain management and sports medicine. Jason provides a focus on rehabilitation treatments at the clinic and Melanie often provides a clinical focus for prenatal and child treatments.

Melanie stated that while the treatments provided are all based on evidence and science, the two have made an attempt to create a relaxing environment and provide a calming oasis to receive treatment in. The clinic offers a flexion distraction chiropractic table for spine and back treatment.

The two are joined by Fran Nystrum, LMT, a long-term resident of the Mount Hood community who provides massage therapy at the clinic, and Dr. Cristine Kadykalo, who provides naturopathic medicine consultations.

The clinic will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. Appointments can be made online or by calling the office. The practice accepts Blue Cross, Moda and Pacific Source insurance and offers discounts for community members without insurance.

Jason stated that the clinic strives to be a “point of entry” for addressing health conditions and aims to provide conservative treatments before referring patients for further MRIs, x-rays or surgical consultations.

“Often the patients that fail to respond to an initial conservative treatment plan ultimately respond better to the surgery due to the preparation,” he said. “If (conservative treatment) works you’re better and if it doesn’t we’ve helped patients prepare.”

Melanie stated the couple hopes to make the clinic a place where people can learn about all elements of their health. Future plans for the clinic include offering a yoga class on Monday nights and other community involvement.
