The Wellspring Centre for Body Balance Team

Dr. Jordan Weeda

Dr. Jordan Weeda

Dr. Weeda is a North Dakota farm boy. He first attended the University of North Dakota, where he graduated summa cum laude and entered the sales industry. After two years, he realized that his calling was to help people, not sell them stuff. He moved west to the San Francisco Bay area with his wife Heidi. There, he enrolled at Life Chiropractic College West, seeking a chiropractic education from the institution with a reputation as the best chiropractic college in the nation.

While there, Dr. Weeda was deeply influenced by the philosophy of chiropractic, learning many approaches that have influenced his work, such as

  • National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA)
  • Quantum Spinal Mechanics (QSM3) – the progressive upper cervical work by Dr. Russell Freidman
  • Bio-Geometric Integration (BGI) – the sacred geometry of Dr. Sue Brown
  • Network Spinal Analysis – the expansive work of Dr. Donald Epstein
  • Torque Release Technique – the revolutionary tonal work of Dr. Jay Holder

Learning NUCCA Chiropractic

Dr. Weeda was introduced to this chiropractic technique through a close friend and colleague. He utilized it during his time at the Life West student clinic and worked with a number of NUCCA practitioners in the area. He graduated summa cum laude as salutatorian in 2009.

Dr. Weeda and his wife Heidi discovered Ashland on a road trip that took them through the Pacific Northwest. Drawn by the beauty of the Rogue Valley and the profound sense of community in our area, they felt a connection to this place. Home is where the heart is, after all, and they soon made the move from the Midwest to Ashland with their first daughter Elle. Wellspring Centre for Body Balance was founded in 2010, and has grown from a small, one-room office to the spacious facility it is today. Since then, the Weedas have welcomed three more children to their family, a second daughter, Aryn, and two boys, Felix and little Esko.

Outside of the Office

Dr. Weeda is a passionate supporter of local and organic farming, deeply influenced by Michael Pollan’s “locavore” philosophy and Paul Chek, a health, fitness and spiritual guru.

He enjoys spending time in his garden, working on home remodeling projects, camping and being outdoors in our beautiful valley. He also loves music and performs regularly with the Southern Oregon Repertory Singers.

Having completed training in sports medicine, Dr. March has multiple ways to help those with injuries, including Kinesio Taping®, Active Release Techniques® and Graston (instrument-assisted soft tissue massage).

Serving As Your Support and Guide

In his life, Dr. March has had a variety of experiences that have led to a strong belief in honoring individuals where they are in their health journey, offering the tools necessary to move to the next step when they’re prepared.

He teaches patients that they’re the ones responsible for healing when given the correct environment and tools. Through his years in practice, he’s found that a hands-on approach is just one of many avenues for correction. Our minds, lifestyle choices and beliefs also have a profound impact on our health. It’s Dr. March’s mission to empower others through teaching them about their health and body.

Outside of the Office

Dr. March is an advocate for health in all areas of life and emphasizes holistic well-being as part of his care. He and his wife Timber moved to Ashland from Portland. They were drawn to our area by the local sustainable agriculture movement and the deep sense of community. The weather was also helpful, and people’s openness to healing and health on a deep level caused them to relocate to the Rogue Valley.

In his free time, Dr. March spends time with his wife, explores quantum physics, the psyche and other aspects of spirituality and health. He enjoys activities such as yoga, qi gong, tai chi, racquetball, snowboarding, gardening, fishing and being outdoors.

Dr. Cody Moss

Dr Cody MossGetting people out of pain and back to what they love to do is my passion. I will strive to help you live an optimal life.

After more than a decade of working with people to get them out of pain as a movement specialist, I found chiropractic to be a natural evolution to elevate patient care. Bringing my extensive background in biomechanical analysis, therapeutic exercises and lifestyle modifications to chiropractic care is a natural fit. I specialize in combining this prior experience with upper cervical care methods, natural pain relief treatments, and chiropractic adjustments to achieve the highest in patient care.

When I have the opportunity to get someone out of a pain that has been limiting them for a long time I get a great sense of achievement. To hear a patient say to me that they are now able to do something they have always wanted, but have been apprehensive to do until now makes me know that I have done my job to the highest of my ability. It’s listening to patients say this every day that makes me remember why I absolutely LOVE what I do!

I am a graduate of University of Western States with a Doctorate in Chiropractic. Certifications from QSM3, National Academy of Sports Medicine, Corrective Exercise Specialist, Performance Enhancement Specialist. Active Isolated Stretching Therapist.

Alison

Alison Duren-Sutherland, Back Office Manager

Alison comes to Wellspring Centre with a background in midwifery and healthcare administration. Believing in the innate power of the body to do what it was designed to do, Alison trained as a home birth midwife with the goal of helping families access care that respected the physiologic, psychological, and spiritual aspects of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. However, her desire to be present for her own family lead Alison to go in to birth center administration once she completed her midwifery education, rather than practicing midwifery herself. She arrived in Southern Oregon in 2011 to manage Wise Women Care Associates & Trillium Waterbirth Center, a multispecialty holistic health care practice that included many of the modalities offered at Wellspring Centre, plus midwifery care. It was at Wise Women that Alison was introduced to the profound impact that gentle chiropractic care could have on the body, mind and spirit. Alison welcomed her second child in 2015, and when the time was right for her to return to full-time employment, Wellspring Centre was looking for an Office Manager, and it was a perfect fit. Now that Alison is returning to graduate school, she’s been so grateful to find a new niche at Wellspring Centre, dealing with business finances and billing.

When not at work, Alison can be found in her garden, at the Unitarian Universalist fellowship where she is an active member, or camping at the Oregon Coast with her husband, Jamie, and their daughters, Ramona and Frances.
