I love what I do because I help people overcome obstacles. I help people gain more function and freedom in their body, reduce pain and discomfort, and ultimately confident and inspired so that they can be the best business owner, parents, spouse, child, student, grocer, lawyer, retiree, political activist, positive contributor to society.
Our physical wellness (or lack of wellness) has so much impact on our lives. How you feel inside your body directly changes the impact you have in the world. When you feel comfortable, confident, and courageous you take on huge obstacles: Everest-sized mountains!
The human body is a vehicle and I believe all of us — you, me, the human who pumps your gas — has a right to live confidently, pain-free, and energetically within our individual vehicles.
The media has fed us myriad information about how we should feel about our vehicle (feel ashamed of yourself if you have love handles and hopeless if you have physical pain) and what we should do about it (diet pills! fad diets! pain pills!) so much that collectively as a country we’ve gotten more and more unhealthy, confused, and mistrusting of our bodies.
These theoretical vehicles of ours are complex, I’ll give you that. But we are meant to reside within these bodies until our final breath … doesn’t it seem wasteful to spend our time here on earth wishing to take up less real estate or to be a different shape or to have a different sensation?
I empower you to overcome obstacles.
Maybe getting back to rockin’ your college-self’s athletic ability to run a 7-minute mile is a far-fetched dream … but at the very least you would like to rollerblade a marathon with your kiddos or do a mini-triathalon with your hubby, just for fun.
Maaaaaybe fitting back into your pre-pregnancy jeans that you’ve kept in your bottom drawer “just in case” seems like a daunting task. But at the very least you’d like to feel more empowered in your post-pregnancy body.
You want to keep up with your kids as you hike through the gorgeous PNW.
You want to go on a 5-day backpacking trip with your friends.
You want to run, hike, walk, bike, dance with the people you love.
Play with your grandkids on the floor. (And get back up off the floor.)
Have energy at the end of your workday to go for a bike ride or walk to a restaurant.
Laugh, live, love with abandon.
That’s what I’m here for: to empower you to be an active participant in your rehabilitation and reinvigorate all aspects of your entire life. Because your body, your health, your mind — you — are the common denominator in your experiences.

My name is Beck Forsland.
I’m committed to service, authenticity, presence. I’m here to turn pain into function. I’m here to turn stiffness into flexibility, to turn knots into strength, to turn anxiety into grace, to remove adhesions, stickiness and regain smooth mobility. I’m here to be useful.
I have been in school nearly 8 years. The majority of my post-graduate medical education has been spend learning about the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems and other systems in the body. I am being taught to diagnose and treat patients and, as a future primary contact doctor (meaning you do not need to receive a referral to see a Chiropractic physician), to differentiate emergent conditions that may walk through my doors. We treat with massage work, physical therapy modalities and something unique to our profession: manipulation.
Over the years, the chiropractic profession has shifted from a belief-based system to an evidence-based, science-driven system. As our profession continues to shift toward employing well-researched and evidence-based methods within our practice, we will continue to do better work for the good of each patient.
Don’t get me wrong: I am all about affirmations, working through negative beliefs, energy work, visualizing, praying, meditating, devotions, sacred practices and traditions. And if you want all that – and more – as a supplement to your treatment, you’ve come to the right place.
Stay in touch!
