At Koru, we believe that true health and wellness go beyond just treating symptoms or managing conditions; it’s about supporting the body’s natural ability to heal and thrive. That’s why we offer a range of wellness services that support the whole person, from massage therapy to physical therapy at our health center.
Our name, Koru, comes from the Maori symbol for new beginnings, growth, and harmony. We chose this name because we believe that true health and wellness require a holistic approach that nurtures the body, mind, and spirit, allowing for growth and harmony in all areas of life, which inspired the opening of our wellness center, The Source. At Koru, we’re committed to providing our patients with the tools and resources they need to achieve their health and wellness goals, and we believe that our wellness services are an essential part of that commitment.
All of our wellness services are meant to complement your chiropractic care to restore balance to the spine and your overall health.

Fascial Stretch Therapy and LOKTE/FST with Michelle Blalock
Detoxification and Health Renewal
The Sunlighten Sauna is a great tool with numerous objectives:
Cardiovascular Health – supporting heart health through increased circulation and heart rate providing a passive cardio scenario building the strength of the heart and the cardiovascular system. A strong cardiovascular system helps capillaries deliver more oxygen to the muscle cells, enabling an increased repair and recovery rate for injury and exertion.
Detoxification – our environment contains a heavy load of toxicity, from environmental toxins to all of the accumulated stressors, which creates inflammation and fatigue and has a negative impact on your overall health. Sunlighten Sauna promotes a deep detoxifying sweat that will leave you feeling cleansed, refreshed and energized.
Strengthened Immunity – our immune systems are strengthened by an increased core body temperature. The Sunlighten Sauna raises the core body temperature signaling white blood cells and the body’s own antiviral cells to activate, enabling them to fight infection.
- Other benefits of the Sunlighten Sauna include weight loss, increased vitality, system-wide relaxation, muscle recovery, and reduced inflammation.
Pulse Electromagnetic Field Recovery and Pain Relief Treatment
PEMF technology provides an electromagnetic field that is coherent with our body’s own electromagnetic field, meaning that our cells can readily utilize the energy produced by the PEMF device as if it were the body’s own energy. PEMF works effectively to realign the electrical currents of our bodies’ cells, effectively improving their functioning and restoring health. This non-drug, non-invasive technique has been proven successful for humans and animals for wound healing and chronic pain relief.
Juvent Micro-Impact Vibration Platform
Juvent’s low-magnitude mechanical impulses passively exercise your bones and muscles, increasing blood flow, relieving pain, and helping increase strength. Regular use of the Juvent platform improves circulation, stability and eases joint, knee and back pain. The earlier we address osteoporosis, joint pain, instability and poor posture, the longer we will remain feeling well, independent and active.
Simply standing on the Juvent Platform for 20 minutes can improve your bone health, reduce joint pain and improve joint health, improve your range of motion, improve your circulation and lymphatic drainage, and increase your rate of recovery from injury, illness, and exertion.
Come, enjoy a session with the Juvent Micro-Impact Vibration Platform and give your body the resources to maintain ideal health!
Whole Body Oxygenation
Detoxify and Improve Self-Healing – Improve Athletic Performance
LiveO2 with Adaptive Contrast is a system of dynamic oxygenation utilizing 90% oxygenated air and 10% oxygenated air. Each session is tailored specifically for the individual’s needs. In a session, we do aerobic exercise and alternate between resourcing the body with the high-oxygen air and challenging the body with the low-oxygen air creating a scenario of efficient cellular detox. Oxygen becomes energy within the cell, enabling the cell to do all of its functions more readily: repair, rebuild, all-cellular metabolism, and detox.
