I believe in creating a treatment space that allows for a patient to fully express themselves; this not only creates a more comfortable atmosphere, but facilitates a better recovery.

Brian Chase is from the Midwest, but has been in the Pacific Northwest for almost 20 years.  Brian understands the importance and health benefits that come from spending time in the outdoors, which has led him to his love of mountain biking, backpacking, and skiing.  Brian has experience with and enjoys working with clients from a wide variety of diagnoses, backgrounds, age-groups, and other factors.
