Massage Therapy

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good, it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural  treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. Each massage therapy plan is tailored to meet the patient's unique pain condition or injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!

*Massage benefits can be received by anyone, not just chiropractic patients.*


At Life Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain and other health problems. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

Lifestyle Advice

Many of our patients come to our center to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our health professioinals will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.

Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Houghton Lake, Roscommon county wellness center, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.

Spinal & Postural Screenings/Healthcare Classes

There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by trained and experienced chiropractors such as Dr. Brett Zubeck, Dr. Megan Barnes and Dr. Fisher can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Houghton Lake and Roscommon County communities, we provide screenings and healthcare classes at area stores, schools, community events, health fairs, and places of employment.

Cold Laser Therapy


Discover how this safe, non-invasive, FDA Cleared technology can benefit you. The state of the art Cold Laser therapy utilized in our office combines micro-current electrical stimulation and low level laser therapy (aka cold laser).  The combination of these two therapies in one machine provides our patients with even better results and relief.

Micro-current Electrical Stimulation – Stimulates the production of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain relievers. As the pain eases physiological changes cause the muscle to relax and improve circulation.  Increased oxygen flow promotes natural healing.

Low Level Laser Therapy (aka Cold Laser) – Is a well-established therapy for pain relief and rehabilitation of numerous injuries.  The laser light penetrates tissue where it is absorbed by the cells and effectively stimulates the increase production of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) producing rapid pain relief and quicker healing.



This gentle, non-surgical procedure can provide lower back and neck pain relief, sciatica pain relief, and is a state-of-the-art procedure for bulging, herniated or degenerative disc disease in the neck and lumbar regions. The gentle distractive forces of the Spinal Decompression create a decompression of the spine with unloading due to distraction and proper positioning to improve blood flow and nutrient exchange to the injured area. You'll experience several cycles of stretch and relaxation, which graduates to a peak over a period of several minutes.
