Meet Blair Copp, Chiropractor
Blair W. Copp is an AZ chiropractor who serves Peoria and the surrounding communities.
Dr. Copp is a nationally board certified chiropractic physician and uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Copp takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Copp will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.
"My goal as a chiropractor and as an educator is to empower people with an understanding of how the human body functions so that wise decisions can be made about one's own health and well-being – thus encouraging people to lead healthier and happier lives. Our greatest wealth is our health." Dr. Blair Copp has truly dedicated his life to chiropractic. His love for the chiropractic profession, coupled with the energy he possesses makes for a wonderful chiropractic experience in the office. He is dedicated to serving the community to enhance the lives of future generations. His training and experience allow him to care for a diverse range of patients. In addition to caring for adults from all walks of life, he adjusts infants, children, families, athletes, seniors and a wide range of problematic cases (such as patients who suffer from osteoporosis or have had previous spinal surgeries).
Dr. Blair is a native of Vancouver, Canada. He and his lovely wife, Jeannie have a beautiful daughter, Paige. "Family is very important to me," states Dr. Blair. "Nothing is more rewarding for me than having the privilege of providing chiropractic care for the entire family. Kids are always my favorite." Dr. Blair graduated from Western States Chiropractic College. He loves to spend time with his family, restore classic cars, golf, and care for his patients.

Meet Bethanie Freshour, Licensed Massage Therapist
Bethanie has been a massage therapist for almost 10 years, after graduating from the Arizona School of Massage Therapy. She approaches massage as both a physical and spiritual healing process. Usually physical pain transfers into shorter tempers, impatience, loss of energy, and can lead to stages of depression. This is not good for everyday living. Most individuals believe they have to live with this physical and emotional pain. This is widely a misconception. Massage is a fascinating tool with several modalities (types of massage) that allows us to address certain areas where the pain can be the most intense and alleviate it. Bethanie’s favorite modalities for alleviating chronic pain are a combination of therapies that include deep tissue (moderate to deep, but she does not perform extreme deep tissue massage), trigger point, relaxation techniques, and injury protocols. This allows her to work down to the deeper layer of muscles and address anything that could be referring pain. She also highly recommends the deep heat treatment with these types of massages, as it allows for a deeper massage without some of the pain. The Prosage and Biofreeze also continues to work after the massage, allowing for faster recovery and less soreness.
Cranial sacral therapy is another modality she will sometimes use to alleviate an assortment of conditions including sinus pressure, headaches (including migraines), stress, balance issues, and in some cases- sleep disorders. This is an interesting modality where the effects can last up to 72hours. Some of the most stubborn and vicious headaches can be alleviated with this modality.
