Meet Our Owner
Fresh out of school, Dr. Williams started his practice in Jacksonville because this is where his family and friends live. He has been practicing chiropractic medicine in the area since Jacksonville Chiropractic Clinic was opened in April of 2000.
Currently, Dr. Williams is a member of the American Chiropractic Association and the Jacksonville-Applegate Rotary Club.
As an undergraduate student, Dr. Williams attended Southern Oregon University and Portland State University, where he received his Bachelor of Science in 1995. In 1999, he graduated from University of Western States in Portland with his doctorate degree in chiropractic medicine.
A lifelong Oregonian, Dr. Williams spent much of his childhood in Southern Oregon and has an extended family in the Rogue Valley. After graduating, he returned to the Rogue Valley to open his practice and start a family.
Dr. Williams sets a good example for his patients by maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. As an avid cycler, he participated in the Graniteman Triathlon at Applegate Lake four years in a row. He currently stays fit by attending the Medford YMCA and other local classes.
Dr. Jason Williams is highly recognized for his ability to listen closely to his clients. He is also known for his in-depth knowledge of the human body.
Throughout the years, many people have chosen Dr. Williams because he provides extra attention and care. In addition, he never fails to go above and beyond for his patients.
What sets Dr. Williams apart is that his knowledge extends beyond chiropractic services. He is known for being able to consider different health factors prior to diagnosing a patient. Dr. Williams also has a network of doctors with other specialties, all of whom he consults with.
Trustworthy Health Expert
Dr. Williams counsels patients in different areas, including nutrition, proper exercise and diet, lifestyle changes, and general health matters. He views every patient as a whole person, and considers various factors that may be affecting his or her overall health.
Dr. Williams finds that some patients respond best to stretching, massage, gentle mobilization, or specific exercises. Not all conditions require a spinal adjustment to promote healing.
For Dr. Williams, the important message is that chiropractic is not a specific treatment. Rather, it is a philosophy that promotes the inherent health of the body. It seeks to remove the obstructions that impede healing and optimal health.
Dr. Williams is committed to giving back to the community, so he volunteers with multiple local organizations. Annually, he takes part in the Britt Musical Festival and the Jackson County Library Children’s Festival. He is also an active member of the Jacksonville-Applegate Rotary Club, and has previously served as president of the organization.
In addition to co-sponsoring the Jacksonville Woodlands Hike-A-Thon every year, Dr. Williams has helped with the construction of several local playgrounds, including Ruch Elementary, Doc Griffin Park, and the Pheasant Hill neighborhood. He has also volunteered with the Art Program at Jacksonville Elementary, and served as a volunteer firefighter with both the Jacksonville and Applegate fire departments.
Our Licensed Massage Therapists
Currently, we have 3 licensed massage therapists on our team:
Joseph (Bodhi) Budziszewski, LMT, ACPT
We welcomed a new Licensed Massage Therapist and experienced Personal Trainer, Joseph (Bodhi) Budziszewski, to our team at Jacksonville Chiropractic Clinic, LLC in February 2017.
Joseph has been living in the Rogue Valley for more than 25 years, and he feels the connections he has made in our community has transcended from being “just acquaintances” to being part of each individual.
“Connection is important to me, and what I can give to others. I know that no single approach is the right approach for each individual I come into contact with. It is my experience and passion to bring forth trust with healing energy as well as relieving stress, by providing different modalities that connect to the mind, body, and spirit. I believe a healthy body feeds the mind, which cleanses the spirit and in turn provides balance in us all.”
Joseph has over 40 years of training in combined Martial Arts, which has brought him a sense of healing and balance throughout his younger years and led him to a lifelong love of fitness and training. He has competed and trained others in gymnastics, martial arts, bodybuilding and long distance running and also competed (and trained) as a ranked professional athlete in Masters Track and Field.
Joseph’s specializes in non-aggressive Deep Tissue, Elongation with Traction, Myofascial Release and Sports Massage while integrating relaxed Swedish in his custom designed healing energy treatments. He believes a gentle, relaxing approach to the body is beneficial to a speedy recovery.
Gabrielle Pullen, LMT, GCFP
Integrating deep work with the sensitivity born of years of training in refining her touch, Gabrielle Pullen was awarded her initial massage license in 1997. Her passion was horses, so it was an obvious progression to work primarily with performance horse and rider teams. Her first love, in terms of massage modalities, was a form of Deep Tissue based on the Trigger Point Therapy with continuous sensitivity to using a depth of pressure appropriate for the individual. Humans sometimes lie or omit mention of pain. However, horses do not tolerate the use of too much pressure! Adding sports massage to the mix, which she could also implement on herself to some extent, Gabrielle has embodied a healthy, rugged lifestyle with the goal of remaining fit to ride regardless of age. A rider herself, Gabrielle constructed a career that required her to focus on what she needed to learn for her own wellbeing: expertise in gait analysis, dynamic posture and fitness. For her, great riding is poetry in motion. From the beginning, her interest has been in how to promote athletic excellence, balance and longevity.
In the process, her journey brought her face-to-face with the subtle requirements of injury rehabilitation and recovery.
After about seven years, fulfilled, but starting to feel the strain of the work, Gabrielle began to turn towards the study of additional modalities, ones that integrate the needs of the whole person, not just the body. Working full time as a massage therapist had begun to take its toll. It was time to find a more refined way to disrupt the patterns of stress and compensation. In the search, she evolved in skillful practice of Meditation, Guided Visualization, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, Lymphatic Massage, Shiatsu and Acupressure. Consideration was given to the pros and cons of looking at anatomy from the perspective of Western Medical Massage versus Chinese Traditional Medicine. Was it all about building muscle for strength? An exploration of Pilates confirmed that this helps, but that it only emphasizes a dysfunctional pattern of compensation if one already exists. How could a person be more deliberate about staying in alignment?
In 2004, Gabrielle graduated from the four-year training that is the standard for the Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education, which is a means of teaching people to refine the feedback loop of their own sensitivity to improve comfort. GCFP stands for Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, an international designation that confirms expertise in training people to move with the least possible friction on joints. This is accomplished by learning to sense alignment with a level of subtlety that most people never access in a culture that promotes blowing through pain and ignoring personal discomfort. Thus, Gabrielle tends to focus on self-compassion, awareness and learning to trust the input of your own nervous system. The nervous system governs the organization of coordination and the resting length of muscles. The focus of Feldenkrais is Awareness Through Movement® (ATM). It augments the innate capacity to improve learning from your own sensate experience. This is the basis of how any baby learns to crawl, stand and, ultimately, walk. Like massage, it is a form of non-verbal communication. Like massage, it communicates a sense of safety, ease and comfort. Unlike massage, it gives you the means to do this for yourself.
Each person has different needs. Sometimes strength is lacking. Gabrielle will direct you to think about ways to integrate exercises to augment power. Sometimes compensation patterns are the issue. Gabrielle can help you reorganize your relationship with how you move through space so that gravity becomes your source of stability rather than an adversary. To that end, she offers weekly ATM classes in Jacksonville.
Gabrielle has lived in the Rogue Valley for over two years. Born of a Swiss mother, she lived in the German-speaking part of Switzerland on the Lake of Constance from the age of nine to nineteen. She spends her free time with her Dutch Warmblood, named “Wisconsin” using Dressage as a means of training him to use his core. She thinks of it as Pilates for horses. She is also working on a number of writing projects. She has worked off and on as a freelance writer since the inception of her massage career, writing to educate people about health, horse care and the relationship between the stories we tell and the level of wellbeing we experience.
