Today we’d like to introduce you to Jess Bohlke.
Hi Jess, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
Absolutely! After being what I call a ‘professional patient’ for years on my own health journey, I really knew exactly how I wanted Journey Chiropractic to feel and how I wanted our patients to be treated. I have worked diligently to ensure the experience in our clinic is unlike any other. One where patients are immediately welcomed with a warm presence and feel a sense of ease just by walking through our doors. We work daily to provide an environment that fully embodies trust, knowledge, hope for healing and provides world-class service to all patients.
As a chiropractor, I aim to treat patients with an individualized and holistic approach. I do this by walking alongside each patient on their unique path toward healing. It is my full belief that it is never too late or too early to take the next step. Therefore, at Journey Chiropractic we welcome individuals of all ages, from newborn to elderly. Our goal is to encourage patients to find joy in the journey, to trust the journey, and to be gracefully committed to growth. One of my favorite quotes about healing is,
“You cannot lift a thousand pounds all at once, but you can lift one pound a thousand times.” – Unknown
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Journey Chiropractic is definitely a mission that found its purpose in pain. My personal healing journey with ovarian cancer taught me what it means to truly heal from the inside out. In choosing holistic cancer treatment (a completely unconventional route), I quickly learned that healing is not a linear process but a journey and no two healing journeys are ever completely alike. I have witnessed how small, repeated efforts have moved mountains in my own health. Through this, my passion grew for helping others navigate their own healing journeys. While it has not been easy, it has been worth every ounce of struggle it took to get to this place and to serve others. Journey’s genuine and unwavering mission is what I believe led us through opening just three weeks before the whole city went on a stay at home order for COVID. We have been blessed with a wonderful patient family, excellent mentors, and a deeply rooted passion for helping others heal.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Journey Chiropractic?
Journey is known amongst our community for being a welcoming space of healing for the entire family. I specialize in and have extra certifications for serving the prenatal and pediatric population. The chiropractic adjusting technique I use is gentle enough for newborn babies and effective enough for even the most complex cases. What I believe truly sets us apart is our level of service. At Journey, no detail of the patient experience or healing journey is left behind. From the moment you walk through our doors, you are greeted by name and welcomed into the Journey Chiropractic family. We aim to be the simplest part of your day and make the healing process a beautiful one.
Our services include: gentle corrective chiropractic care, pediatric care, prenatal/postpartum, family wellness, digital x-ray, needle-less form of acupuncture and beyond!
CHIROPRACTIC – Chiropractic is truly about optimizing your overall health by restoring normal function within the nervous system. The nervous system controls all other systems of the body: Respiratory, Digestive, Integumentary, Circulatory, Urinary, Reproductive, Musculoskeletal, and Endocrine. This is why chiropractic care helps the body heal from much more than pain. Dr. Jess uses a hands-on approach to healing using a GENTLE and EFFECTIVE technique, making it SAFE for the whole family. Your body is designed to feel well and thrive!
X-RAY – Depending on your age, health history, and presentation, digital films may be taken on your initial visit. This vital information will aid in developing the most effective treatment plan for you and alert Dr. Jess of any serious spinal conditions that may otherwise be left unseen. “To see is to know, not to see is to guess, and we do not guess about your health!”
PRENATAL – Prenatal care is exceptional for many reasons for both mother and baby. Proper alignment and positioning make for a comfortable pregnancy and aids in a healthy delivery. Common Reasons Mothers Seek Our Care: Nausea, Reflux, Indigestion, Pelvic pain, Rib Pain, Back pain, Sciatica, Fatigue, Discomfort, Anxiety, Proper Pelvic Alignment for Birth + Postpartum healing & realignment.
PEDIATRIC – The pressure used in pediatric care is no more than you would use to test the ripeness of a tomato. While extremely gentle, it is also incredibly effective. Infants experience great physical trauma during birth, as well as rapid neurological development that carries into the rest of their lives. Chiropractic care results in proper development and increased vitality, creating a foundation of health for a lifetime. Common Reasons Children Benefit from care: Colic, torticollis, breastfeeding discomfort, digestive health/constipation, allergies, behavior, focus, bedwetting, tumbles/falls, growing pains, sports, the list goes on!
Curious if chiropractic would be a good fit for your family? Consultations are always complimentary.
Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
Growing up, I always cared about others and knew I wanted to work with people in some capacity. In eighth grade at our career fair, I had decided I wanted to be a children’s psychologist and work with helping families heal from trauma. In a big way, that passion is definitely lived out through having a family chiropractic practice. There is, without a doubt, an emotional and physical component to healing! I believe having that empathetic perspective and passion for others emotional health has given me a unique perspective of how being trusted with someone’s body/health/children is the highest honor. I will always hold that to the highest standard, above all else.
