A new chiropractic practice has opened in Grand Rapids.
Dynamic Essence Chiropractic Center opened last month at 746 Wealthy St. SE.
It was founded by the married couple of Lisa Finkbeiner, D.C. and Brittnie Finkbeiner.
The 1,739-square-foot center also houses Justyne Ortquist, L.L.M.F.T. of Authenticity Therapy and Jenny Bork, L.M.T. of Remembered Practice.
The couple opened the center to provide "affordable, whole-person wellness care" in a way “unlike any other in Grand Rapids.”
“Our mission is to empower you to express yourself by fostering the development of self-sustained physical and mental well-being,” Brittnie Finkbeiner said.
“We know that when the nervous system is cleared, your body is better able to eradicate destructive patterns. While we see and facilitate healing in many patients with back and neck pain, our services extend well beyond that. We are function-focused and work to remove tension within the physical, cellular or emotional self.”
The center offers monthly plans starting at $99 per month that provide unlimited care and include chiropractic adjustments, therapeutics exercises and activities, soft-tissue therapy and nutritional counseling.
Brittnie Finkbeiner said the “fair and affordable” membership model allows them to more easily offer services to low-income people.
“Our memberships cost less, annually, than most people pay with their co-pays alone,” she said. “You get more visits, which means more care and better health.”
The couple is leasing the space with intentions to buy.
The owner of the building is Ken Armour, who worked with the commercial real estate brokerage Signature Associates on the deal.
Lisa Finkbeiner earned a B.S. in exercise science and health science from Saginaw Valley State University, where she focused on exercise and pregnancy, strength and conditioning and athletic performance. She is a also graduate of the Palmer College of Chiropractic.
Brittnie Finkbeiner is serving as the office manager and works as a doula, while she completes her chiropractic education. She has a bachelor’s degree in psychology and women and gender studies from Grand Valley State University.
