Section Description:   We are a true multi-disciplinary team, offering sports medicine, chiropractic medicine, naturopathic medicine & primary care, physical therapy and rehabilitation, acupuncture, and massage.

Name:   Dr. Michael Herb, DC, DACBSP

Title:   Chiropractic Sports Physician

Description:   A leading Eugene chiropractor, Dr. Michael Herb received his doctoral degree from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon, and his Diplomate from the American Board of Chiropractic Sports Physicians, an honor and degree of sports medicine specialization obtained by only about 300 other chiropractic physicians across the country. Prior to his training in chiropractic and sports medicine, Dr. Herb attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Cincinnati for bachelor’s and master’s level courses. During this time, he worked as a personal trainer helping clients reach their goals. He originally became impassioned with the health care field while attaining his degree as an emergency medical technician (EMT) and working in both the emergency department as well as ambulatory care. Dr. Herb has always had a strong desire to help others to improve their health and lead a more fulfilling lifestyle. As a point of pride, he considers it his duty as a chiropractic physician to not only care for his patient’s injuries but also to focus a great deal of time educating them on exactly what is taking place and the proper procedures to both get out of pain and resume normal activities at an optimum level. As such, Dr. Herb enjoys working with other providers within the medical community to achieve these goals. His experience and passion for each and every patient’s well being ensures that proper care will be found either through his clinic or the correct referral to another specialist if the need arises. Chiropractic and sports medicine, as practiced at Absolute Wellness Center, is centered on evidence based care. In order to do this, Dr. Herb stays up to date on the latest research and clinical trial findings so that he may offer the most effective care possible and achieve results in the shortest amount of time. His practice offers both the latest tools for treatment as well as a large rehabilitation suite where patients are shown appropriate therapeutic exercises directed by the doctor and our physical therapy team to maximize their healing and maintain it well after their treatment is finished. Science is used as a tool but is not mistaken for all that is needed. Each and every patient who is seen by Dr. Herb is treated as an individual with unique needs and a desire to be treated as a person and not just a symptom. He will speak with you along the route to better health to ensure that all procedures are explained in an understandable fashion and that your goals as a patient, and as a person, are the focus. While not in the clinic, Dr. Michael Herb is an avid weight lifter and can be found trying to pick up the heaviest weights he can find. He also enjoys reading fiction and philosophy, loves being around animals, and trying to make his wife Whitney watch scary movies.

Name:   Dr. Brandon Beckerman

Title:   Chiropractic Physician

Description:   Dr. Brandon Beckerman graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Overland Park, Kansas. He is currently pursuing a post-graduate specialization from the American Board of Chiropractic Internists. Dr. Beckerman’s approach to patient care is to understand the underlying cause of a patient’s complaint. This allows him to create an effective plan to not only alleviate symptoms, but also to yield long term resolution of the condition. The goal is to keep patients out of pain, provide them with the tools to help prevent new injury, and hopefully keep them out of the doctor’s office! He prides himself on developing a friendly, respectful, and compassionate relationship with his patients. This is done through the utilization of short treatment plans and emphasizing patient education, empowering the patient in self-care. For Dr. Beckerman, chiropractic medicine is an effective paradigm for patients that want to get out of pain or dysfunction. His emphasis is on scientific and research driven functional medicine. Another perk that Dr. Beckerman appreciates within his chosen field is that the he and the patient are able to form a personal bond within the doctor-patient relationship. The human relationship between the doctor and patient is often just as important as the physical treatment plan itself, and it makes the job more personal and most satisfying. The staff and providers at Absolute Wellness Center are constantly entertained by Dr. Beckerman’s warm personality and playful humor. In his free time, he enjoys classic cars, woodworking, and going to the ballet or symphony with his wife Aubrey. As a Kansas-transplant to the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Beckerman is thrilled with the beauty and outdoor activities the Willamette Valley has to offer. You may also run into him exploring the amazing array of local restaurants and brewpubs Eugene has to offer.

Name:   Masa Nielsen, LMT

Title:   Licensed Massage Therapist

Description:   Masa (pronounced MAH-suh) has been practicing massage therapy for nearly 10 years, after graduating from the massage program at Remington College in Honolulu, Hawaii while her husband was assigned to an Army base on the island. Originating in Okinawa, Japan, Masa has lived all over these beautiful United States while serving as an Army wife for more than 20 years. Now that her husband has retired from the military, Masa considers herself lucky to call the Pacific Northwest home, finally settling down near friends and her husband’s family. Planting roots in Eugene has allowed Masa to pursue her own career helping people heal and feel their best, a pursuit she is passionate about. Masa is a member of NCBTMB (National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork) and has been licensed as a chiropractic assistant since 2011, allowing her to specialize her practice on medical and therapeutic massage. She also has extensive experience in deep tissue massage, prenatal massage, infant massage, sports massage, and cupping. Her primary focus is deep tissue massage and trigger point treatments, as she often finds these help patients recover from injuries the fastest. Masa’s patients comment on her ability to find sore spots they might not have even been aware of yet, and she is incredibly flexible in her strength and techniques. If a patient needs deeper work, they need only ask. Masa is also more than capable of providing a more gentle and relaxing massage, always encouraging her patients to speak up about their needs and preferences. Masa has a wonderful sense of humor and truly enjoys working with her patients, getting to know them through the healing process so she can best meet their needs and ensure their swift progression through their treatment plan. When not at work, Masa enjoys spending time with her dogs. She and her husband rescued three precious (and precocious) dogs from a county shelter in Texas near their old home. Walking the dogs and attending Jazzercise a few times a week keeps Masa fit and healthy, but she also enjoys her down time. She has been taking photographs from her extensive world travels for many years, often scrap-booking albums to enjoy and share.
