Infants / Kids

Kids love chiropractic and we love to seeing kids of all ages from babies to teenagers.  Kids these days have more stress, more medication and more medical intervention than ever before.   All too often injuries arise during the birth process that cause stress on the delicate nerves that control and coordinate every function of the body.  These injuries can lead to ear infections, colic, torticollis, acid reflux, sleeping problems, asthma and more.  A healthy nervous system is vital for proper growth and development.  A pediatric chiropractor is trained to identify these small injuries before they affect growth and development.  Here are some indications that your child may need to see a pediatric chiropractor like Dr. Adam Manninan.

If you are a competitive athlete or push yourself in pursuit of what you enjoy and you want to continue as you age, chiropractic can help.

Acupuncture Care

For thousands of years acupuncturists have been studying the cause and effect of disease processes and symptoms.  Acupuncture is a medical approach that addresses a person as a whole, mentally, physically and emotionally.

Our acupuncturists are trained in listening to patients and clinically evaluate each patient’s unique function in their body to identify “why” symptoms have appeared.  Acupuncture supports healthy communication within the body, strong blood flow and optimal internal organ function.  Our bodies have the ability to heal.  Acupuncture helps strengthen and stimulate the healing process.   Our Acupuncturists Bree Manninen and Lauren Oechsli are here to support our community in Bozeman, Belgrade and the Greater Gallatin Valley.

Family Care

Acupuncture can support your whole family.  We support people of all ages, 0-100+.  A well-known saying in acupuncture is, “to treat the child you must first treat the mother”.  In the 21st century, we believe it is more accurate to include dad too!  When parents can’t be strong leaders for their children due to sickness or injury, it affects the entire family.  We pass on colds, viruses, germs and STRESS!  As your Bozeman based family clinic, we are here to support you with your family’s healthcare needs.  The following are some reasons families see us for Acupuncture Care:

Lifestyle Care

The way we live impacts our health.  At Ascend Wellness we recognize the impact of daily choices.  We give our patients the tools they need to live a lifestyle that promotes health and wellness.  Lifestyle is not just about today, but a means to live a vital future.   It is the daily choices we make that are the building blocks for a healthy future.  We offer personalized recommendations, classes and refer to a community of practitioners, all passionate to support you in living your healthiest now and future.


At Ascend Wellness we focus on the basic foundation of nutrition and debunk myths that have become cultural norms.  Food provides our bodies with the building blocks for proper function.  We use custom guidance for each patient based on Chinese food therapy, anti-inflammatory and food intolerance approaches.  Our partnership with nutritionists, coaches and online cooking resources enable us to reach the needs of our patients.


Research for decades has proven that exercise keeps us healthy, but is the same type of exercise right for everyone?  Our personalized approach to exercise recommendations includes more than just cardiovascular aerobic exercise; we combine core strengthening and whole body integration.  We are trained in systems that are over 2,000 years old.  These systems support the body’s ability to heal itself and are restorative.  Did you know exercise helps stimulate positive cell growth, increase bone density and encourage healthy organ function!   See the list of coming seminars below for more information.

Mediation/Stress Reduction Techniques

Life has stress and always will.  Our bodies and minds are amazing!  We experience stress and we adapt, physically, mentally and emotionally.  Stress doesn’t have to impact our health in a negative way if we can learn skills to encourage health adaption.  Practices, such as meditation, have been gaining recognition in the media because of the positive health outcomes researchers have discovered.

Did you know that we become habituated in our reaction to stress? That’s right, our brains have an autopilot and create reactions in our physical bodies, our emotions and our lives.

We believe it is essential for our patients to gain access to techniques that help empower them to build positive reactions to stress, in turn giving them the best ability to heal and feel vital!
