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. 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.

  • Quantum Spinal Mechanics (QSM3) – spent many hours with Dr. Russell Friedman while studying in Atlanta

  • Sacro-Occipital Technique® (SOT®) – Dr. Major B. DeJarnette through the lens of professor Dr. Hochman

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.

John-Paul McMullen, LMT

Photo of John-Paul McMullenJohn-Paul has been practicing therapeutic massage since 1991. He combines what he learned from every teacher he studied with into a listening approach to bodywork that addreses a person’s core needs and supports them through their individual healing processes.

His massage education began at the Phillips School in Nevada City, CA. He went on to study at the Heartwood Insitute in 1993 where he learned Zen Shiatsu, Tai Chi, and Reiki. He was initiated as a Reiki Master in Sedona the following year. Throughout the nineties John-Paul lived in Philadelphia and worked in private practice while teaching Reiki classes at a local interfaith church. During that time he was introduced to Trager work which helped him learn how best to meet and engage the deepest layers of tissue in the body in a way that is respectful and readily welcomed by the receiver. Through a combination of massage, energy awareness and movement John-Paul conceived of a personal approach toward bodywork that he continues to develop and expand to this day.

John-Paul moved to Oregon at the beginning of the millenium, where he broadened his personal style in a variety of spa settings, chiropractic offices, and private practice. He furthered his education in Portland and Olympia with classes in Deep Tissue massage and Reflexology, and in 2012 studied Chi Nei Tsang, a form of abdominal massage. He moved to Ashland, OR later that year, where he continues to live and practice.

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.
