Dr. Christopher J. Long, D.C.
A native of Fresno, Dr. Long attended Buchanan High School and California State University Fresno. After attending Fresno State, Dr. Long graduated with honors and received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life Chiropractic College West in the bay area.
Dr. Long’s biggest passions are his Christian faith and his family: his wife Stephanie and their year old daughter Hayden. He loves hunting, fishing, traveling, watching Giants baseball and most of all spending time with family and friends.
Dr. Long practices the traditional philosophy of Chiropractic, which is subluxation and structural correction of the spine. Simply put, a subluxation is a misaligned vertebrae which interferes with nerve impulses. Nerve impulse is the electrical charge from the brain that regulates all function of the body and keeps us alive.
Although the traditional Chiropractor wants his patients to "feel better", his primary focus is removing nerve interference and restructuring the spine to its most stable biomechanical position. This is done through a rehabilitation program of adjustments and spinal exercises.
Billie Bagley C.M.T
Billie Bagley is a Certified Massage Therapist. She received her AS Degree in Business in 1997. She earned her Massage Certification in 2006. After graduating she continued her education by becoming a Certified Prenatal Therapist in early 2007. Billie then received her continued education in Reflexology studies and Hot Stone Therapy in the later part of 2007. She fulfilled the Massage Doula Program in 2008. She is a State Certified Practitioner by the California Massage Therapy Council.
She developed a passion in natural approaches to healthcare when working for a chiropractor for 17 years. With this, Billie experienced the benefits of natural healing first hand. She found that not only does massage therapy restore health and wholeness to the body, but that massage combined with chiropractic, works together to naturally let the body heal itself. She is experienced in: Swedish, deep tissue, and trigger point therapy. During a session it will include a combination of these techniques if necessary. She also specializes in pre and post-natal, and on site chair massage.
For Billie, massage is a holistic practice that influences a large part of her life. Her goal is to continue to educate people about massage therapy. Throughout her massage career, she has learned that no two sessions are alike. Everyone has their own set of life experiences and a unique relationship to their body, which deeply affects their personal massage style preferences and needs. This understanding has enabled Billie to utilize her training and life experience to tailor each massage session to the needs of each individual.
Outside of massage therapy Billie enjoys staying active, such as cycling at the gym, yoga, playing volleyball and spending time with family.
