SOUTH BELOIT– For Jillian Mazeika, resuming Reich Chiropractic Clinic in South Beloit just felt right, and she will continue offering take care of patients 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 suddenly in August of 2019. At the time of her father's death, Mazeika was still in school at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She chose to keep the original office place at 1831 Blackhawk Boulevard open instead of relocating to a new space.
“It always led back to coming back here,” Mazeika stated. “There was so much history here. I discovered a lot from him throughout the years. I got to see him do a lot. I found myself veering towards what he did since I was comfy with it and I liked it. Ever since I was a kid I wished to be a chiropractic doctor and I saw how happy he made people.”
After redesigning the workplace to include her individual touch to the area, Mazeika says she's confident the family-oriented clinic's 70th year will be one of its most successful. The clinic was very first built by her grandfather, Robert Reich.
“The client reaction I have actually been getting has actually been so moving and incredible,” Mazeika said. “Some individuals state they see my daddy in me which's been extremely heart-warming.”
Mazeika utilizes a varied, hands-on change method and said those who might not be familiar with chiropractic care need to consider it as cars and trucks 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 say the pain 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 adjustment to assist the body function on the human interstate.”
New clients go through a new patient exam and x-rays prior to being changed and revealed certain stretches that help people recuperate while in the house. The center has executed procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and masks are required during visits.
“Chiropractic care is actually accessible and we deal with people to help them feel better,” Mazeika stated.
But Mazeika's work doesn't just stop at modifications. She's preparing to coach 6th grade volley ball in the South Beloit School District, and wishes to help belong to the support network for trainees browsing the delicate social landscape that is being a young adult in intermediate school and high school.
A grand opening event and open house will be hung on Feb. 6. The event will range from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
