Outside of the Office

Dr. Dan Helgerman, DC

Dr. Daniel HelgermanDr. Helgerman grew up in western Pennsylvania where he developed a love for the outdoors and a strong desire to help others. Initially he planned to work in the mental health field by completing his degree in Theology, Philosophy, and Religions with a Psychology minor. However, in the final months of completing his degree he sustained a shoulder injury that severely limited his ability to enjoy the physical activities that sustained him. Through this injury Dr. Helgerman learned first hand how debilitating chronic pain can be to one’s quality of life and happiness. After discovering how effective chiropractic was in his own process of recovery, Dr. Helgerman decided to become a chiropractor to offer the same gift of healing to others and completed his chiropractic education at, Life University in Atlanta, GA.

Dr. Helgerman’s chiropractic technique is influenced by the following techniques:

  • Quantum Spinal Mechanics (QSM3) – spent many hours with Dr. Russell Friedman while studying in Atlanta
  • Bio-Geometric Integration (BGI) – the sacred geometry of Dr. Sue Brown
  • Sacro-Occipital Technique® (SOT®) – Dr. Major B. DeJarnette through the lens of professor Dr. Hochman
  • NUCCA- National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association
  • Atlas Orthogonal – studied upper cervical biomechanics under Dr. Roy Sweat while in Atlanta
  • Upper and Lower Kinetic Chains- Active Release Technique
  • Activator Methods- gentle instrument assisted adjustments.
  • Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.) – the gentle work of Dr. William Morter
  • Upper Cervical Specific – the work started it all … Dr. B.J. Palmer
  • Extremity adjusting through Dr. Hearon


Perceiving the Big Picture

Dr. Daniel Helgerman believes that having a healthy, functioning body is the most important aspect to having a high quality of life. Living inside one’s body can feel like being trapped in a prison or can remind us of our rightful freedom to make life an adventure. Recovery from an injury or trauma can literally enable someone to live a life otherwise impossible. It is Dr. Helgerman’s passion to help people achieve their highest potentials through chiropractic care and daily wellness practices, and his healing paradigm emerges from three major premises:

1) The human body is a self-organizing, self-developing, self-maintaining, and self-healing organism and its functions are orchestrated primarily through the central nervous system. The central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord and when the spine is misaligned, especially the neck, it interferes with the nervous systems ability to perform regulatory functions and weakens one’s vitality.

2) The human body moves and operates from the principles of “tensegrity”, meaning the body’s structural integrity is dependent on balanced tension and compression throughout the body from head to toe. When the body is out of balance it becomes more susceptible to the compressing effects of gravity. All pain syndromes in the spine and lower body as well as many visceral complaints (sluggish digestion, trouble breathing, heartburn, etc.) are due to postural collapse under the pressure of gravity.

3) The mind and body of a human being are not isolated from one another. They function together as the unified expression of “bodymind”. It is common for emotional traumas to leave residual tension within our body, keeping us tethered to the past. In our cognitively dominated culture it is common for people to have reconciled a trauma intellectually, but rarely have they allowed the trauma to process through their body. When these emotional tensions are acknowledged and released, the potential for new pathways of bodymind beingness emerge and a person can move from a wiser, more unified self, rather than continuing to feel the body-mind dissonance around certain issues.

Outside of the Office

Dr. Helgerman enjoys all outdoor activities. Whenever possible he is hiking, camping, and exploring. His dream vacations are through hikes. Aside from outdoor adventure activities, Dr. Helgerman is hoping to expand his homesteading skills by helping local farmers, and he also has a strong appreciation for music as he plays the drums and guitar.

Dr. Noah Volz, DC, LMT

Noah VolzDr. Volz grew up in a holistic household that recognized the benefits of the outdoors, healthy food, and bodywork. This means that his professional training started decades before he started chiropractic school. In 2018, after working as a massage therapist and yoga teacher for over a decade, Dr. Volz graduated from Life West Chiropractic College. He previously worked with Siskiyou Massage in Ashland, and has been a teacher at Om Sweet Om Yoga Studio in Talent.

Dr. Volz has presented on Concussions at the American Chiropractic Association Sports Council Sports Symposium and the Association of Chiropractic Colleges, and has given lectures to professional groups such as the Peace Health Hospital and the Rogue Valley Medical Center. He volunteered with the Alta Bates Sutter Medical Center, Oakland Unified School District, and the Council of Concerned Medical Professionals, and has has worked with several Rogue Valley businesses such as Banyan Botanicals, Farm to Fork Events, and the Ashland Springs Hotel.

Dr. Volz’s chiropractic technique is influenced by the following techniques:

  • NUCCA – National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association
  • Upper and Lower Kinetic Chains- Active Release Technique
  • Activator Methods- gentle instrument assisted adjustments
  • Quadrant Analysis – Dr. Rob Pape
  • SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment), OnBaseU, and Raquetfit. – Dr. Greg Rose
  • Extremity adjusting through Dr. Walton
  • Chiropractic Neurology – Dr. Frederick Carrick, Dr Brandon Brock, and Dr. Datis Kharazian


His overall approach to health is influenced by the following methods:

  • Tantric Hatha Yoga – Nrrta Sadhana, Angahara, and Shadow Yoga by Shandor Remete
  • Ayurveda through the lens of Dr. Mark Halpern, Dr. Paul Dugliss, and Dr. Sarita Shrestha
  • Massage techniques such as Lowen Systems, Advanced Muscle Reconditioning, and Active Release Technique


Since entering healthcare in 2002 Dr. Volz has refined his approach to health and wellbeing. His time-tested approach consists of the following elements.

Mind/Body Medicine – The biopsychosocial approach to joint and spine pain confirms that pain is more than just a physical phenomenon and that true recovery and healing requires inclusion of the mind and emotions.

Sequencing and Intention – If you are baking bread and you follow the instructions in the reverse order, it will not work. Having all the right ingredients for health is the first step and putting them in the right order, or using them at the right time, is what a guide like Dr. Volz can help with. Health requires that the stories you tell yourself are ones that will lead you towards healing and recovery.

Guidance and Support – Every hero has a guide. Frodo had Gandalf. King Arthur had Merlin. Cinderella had her fairy godmother. Dr. Volz’s job as a physician is to be one of your guides to help you take the next step in your journey in becoming the hero of your own story.


Dr. Volz is the author of New Year Re-Solution: A 14 Day Ayurvedic Program to Lose Weight and Feel Your Best and The Master Student: The Ultimate Guide to Success, Enjoyment and Productivity as a Chiropractic College Student. When Dr. Volz isn’t with patients he can be found reading a good book, backpacking, and riding his bike.

Dr. Jordan Weeda

Dr. Jordan Weeda, Founder of WCBB

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. 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. 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.

In 2019, the Weedas sold the practice to Dr. Timothy March, and his wife Timber Hart, and moved back to Minnesota to be closer to family. Dr. March had been working alongside Dr. Weeda for nearly seven years as part of the Wellspring Centre and gave the Weedas the confidence that Wellspring Centre will continue to fulfill its mission with a new family at the helm. Wellspring Centre has blossomed into what Dr. Weeda always envisioned it could be: a team of providers and staff all committed to serving our patients with love.
