SOUTH BELOIT– For Jillian Mazeika, reopening Reich Chiropractic Clinic in South Beloit simply felt right, and she will continue offering take care of patients throughout the Stateline Area just as her grandfather and dad did prior to her.
Mazeika,24, is the daughter of the late Brad Reich, who died all of a sudden in August of 2019. At the time of her father's death, Mazeika was still in school at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She chose to keep the original office place at 1831 Blackhawk Boulevard open instead of relocating to a brand-new space.
“It constantly led back to coming back here,” Mazeika said. “There was just so much history here. I discovered so much from him throughout the years. I got to see him do a lot. I found myself veering toward what he did due to the fact that I was comfortable with it and I liked it. Since I was a kid I wanted to be a chiropractor and I saw how pleased he made people.”
After remodeling the office to include her personal touch to the area, Mazeika states she's confident the family-oriented center's 70th year will be among its most effective. The clinic was first constructed by her grandpa, Robert Reich.
“The client reaction I have been getting has actually been so moving and incredible,” Mazeika said. “Some individuals state they see my daddy in me and that's been really heart-warming.”
Mazeika uses a diversified, hands-on adjustment technique and said those who may not be familiar with chiropractic care must think about it as automobiles on a highway.
“If there's a crash on Highway 251 or on I-90 there would be a back up and people would have their brakes on. We use that analogy and state the discomfort that you are having is our brake lights letting us understand there's something going on in your body,” she stated. “We go in and action in with manual adjustment to help the body function on the human interstate.”
New clients go through a brand-new client examination and x-rays before being changed and shown certain stretches that help individuals recuperate while in the house. The center has actually implemented measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and masks are needed during appointments.
“Chiropractic care is actually accessible and we work with people to help them feel better,” Mazeika said.
But Mazeika's work doesn't simply stop at changes. She's preparing to coach 6th grade volley ball in the South Beloit School District, and wants to assist become part of the support network for students browsing the fragile social landscape that is being a young adult in middle school and high school.
A grand opening event and open home will be hung on Feb. 6. The event will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
