SOUTH BELOIT– For Jillian Mazeika, reopening Reich Chiropractic Clinic in South Beloit just felt right, and she will continue offering care for clients across the Stateline Area just as her grandpa and daddy did prior to her.
Mazeika,24, is the child of the late Brad Reich, who died all of a sudden in August of 2019. At the time of her daddy's passing, Mazeika was still in school at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She chose to keep the original workplace area at 1831 Blackhawk Boulevard open instead of transferring to a brand-new area.
“It always led back to coming back here,” Mazeika stated. “There was so much history here. I discovered so much from him over the years. I got to see him do a lot. I found myself drifting toward what he did because I was comfy with it and I liked it. Since I was a kid I wished to be a chiropractic practitioner and I saw how happy he made people.”
After redesigning the office to include her individual touch to the area, Mazeika says she's positive the family-oriented center's 70th year will be among its most effective. The center was very first constructed by her grandpa, Robert Reich.
“The client reaction I have been getting has been so moving and amazing,” Mazeika stated. “Some people say they see my dad in me which's been very heart-warming.”
Mazeika utilizes a diversified, hands-on change technique and said those who may not recognize with chiropractic care must think about it as cars 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 utilize that example and state the discomfort that you are having is our brake lights letting us understand there's something going on in your body,” she said. “We enter and step in with manual control to assist the body function on the human interstate.”
New patients go through a brand-new client examination and x-rays before being changed and revealed specific stretches that assist individuals recover while at home. The clinic has executed measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and masks are needed throughout appointments.
“Chiropractic care is truly available and we work with people to help them feel better,” Mazeika stated.
But Mazeika's work does not just stop at modifications. She's preparing to coach 6th grade volleyball in the South Beloit School District, and wishes to assist become part of the support network for students navigating the delicate social landscape that is being a young person in middle school and high school.
A grand opening event and open home will be hung on Feb. 6. The occasion will range from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
