Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

When not indoors working on clients, you’ll find her outside hiking, biking, skiing, golfing, fishing and enjoying all of the wondrous beauty and gifts of Alaska. She is an avid world traveler & “cruiser”, sports fan, loves fast exotic cars and speed bikes, cooking gourmet Pacific Rim and Italian food, is an aspiring writer and enjoys singing, dancing and crafting of all kinds.

Heather Arkell, LMT

Chiropractic Anchorage AK HeatherI love being able to help people and make them feel better and because of this passion I have chosen to be in the medical field. I first graduated from Medical Assisting School at Eaton Tech in Washington State in 1999. After ten plus years being a CMA, I needed a change but still wanted to feel like I was helping. After much thought, I chose Massage. I graduated as a Massage Therapist in 2010 with an added class in Spa Specialties. After my externship, I decided to go on and take more classes and have added a certification in Sports Massage to the mix. I love working with Chiropractors because I feel the overall care in enhanced with us all working as a team with one goal in mind…The Patient!

In my spare time, I can be found taking photos of the night sky or beautiful Alaska Sunrise. I have two teenage kids and two fur kids, and we are all very much in love with Alaska and the great outdoors. In the summers, we can be found hiking, camping, fishing and swimming. In the winters, a good book always calls to me before the cold does. I have always been compelled to reach out and have always volunteered in each community I find myself in and plan on doing that here once I am settled in.

Jane Eldridge, LMT

Chiropractic Anchorage AK JaneJane Eldridge is a candidate for Certification in Advanced Myofascial Techniques (CAMT) by Advanced-Trainings. She has completed Spine I and Scoliosis I & II.

I was born and raised in Anchorage and graduated from West High in 1993. I briefly went to UAA before moving to Oregon. I eventually ended up going to Cedar Mountain Center for Massage in Vancouver, Washington graduating in 1998.

After massage school I moved back to Alaska and worked at multiple day spas in Anchorage. In 1999 I moved to Oahu, Hawaii for a year and a half and learned different styles of massage. I came back to Alaska and continued to work in Anchorage until I had a child in 2003. I then took some time off to raise my son. In 2006 I started work again in a medical day spa which led me to work in chiropractic offices. I have been working as a massage therapist now for 14 years.

I specialize in various modalities using Swedish, Hot Stone and Deep Tissue as my basic techniques. I can incorporate other techniques like Reflexology and Shiatsu into the treatment as well as Cranio Sacral. I like to start at a light to medium pressure and work in deeper as the patient starts to relax. I am learning Myofascial techniques and working on that certification. I believe a good massage leaves the patient in a relaxed state with less pain and more range of motion than when they first came in.

I originally passed my Washington State license back in 1998, which was also the National test. I then was licensed in the State of Alaska and I have received certificates in Hot Stone, Touch for Health, Scoliosis, and Myofascial techniques for the low back. I am current on my City and State licenses in Alaska.

I have been working at EIHC since October 2011 and my knowledge of Myofascial techniques have increased through continuing education courses. I am grateful that EIHC is an employer that cares about keeping up with the latest in education and the development of their employees, the level of professionalism here is the best I have seen.

I enjoy teaching my son new things and traveling. I like some outdoor activities such as boating, swimming, camping and biking. I love spending time with my family and visiting with friends and relatives. I love music and going to see concerts, cooking and trying new recipes to share with my friends. I also enjoy receiving massage as much as I do giving it.
