Dr. Tim Yoder
Dr. Yoder has lived in the Pacific Northwest for his entire life. He loves the atmosphere and the relationships that are built through working with individuals and businesses in the community. Dr. Yoder has developed mastery in the delivery of Maximized Living chiropractic care in Vancouver, WA. Both, living the five Maximized Living essentials with his wife and sons, and teaching others how to thrive in health and happiness have been true blessings for him. The most rewarding opportunities for Dr. Yoder have been the ability and specialization he has developed in caring for pregnant women, newborns, and children. While his five years caring for families has developed into one of the most advanced centers for cutting edge chiropractic care, this clinic offers the best chiropractic care, he still strives to develop and advance the science and art of healing through the power of principled chiropractic care.

Bruce’s passion and endeavors include softball-coaching, football, basketball, full body fitness in reality he has done them all. If he has not participated in your sport he most likely has worked on its most common injuries. The prime purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension, which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Whether one is an athlete, or a desk jockey, minor injuries and muscle tension occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse. Massage in Vancouver, WA aids in recovery and repair of these tissues. Above all, sports massage can help prevent those nagging minor injuries that so often get in the way of optimum performance and achievement. This treatment is not just for the athlete: anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries)
Bruce’s experience includes working with the training staff therapist to the Portland Timber Soccer Club and with the Portland Monarchs Football Club performing pre-event and post- event treatment massage on players. He has experience with injuries such as rotator cuff injuries, whiplash, tendonitis, patellofemoral syndrome and many other postural dysfunctions.
Bruce is dedicated to personal wellness. His healthy living is reflected in his calm presence and strong hands. His massage style combines gentle specific stretches with direct focused strokes to release areas of tension and dysfunction. He uses techniques such as Myofascial Release, Thai, Sports Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy to restore optimum function and movement throughout the body. Bruce views the body as a whole with the goal of symmetry and balance, which are essential to health and well-being.
Bruce graduated from Everest College with honors in Vancouver with an emphasis in sports and treatment therapy. Bruce loves to spend time with his family, which are his spouse Jane to whom he has been married 31 years, and has four wonderful daughters Annie, Jill, Kelly, and Kristin, five cute grandchildren, and two awesome big dogs
Charlonda FielderMy name is Charlonda Fielder, and I am a Licensed Massage Practitioner. I received my education from Everest College in Vancouver Washington, and graduated with honors in 2008. Some of my certifications include: Federation Of State Massage Therapy Boards, MBLEX Exam, and CPR and First AID Certified with the American Red Cross. I specialized in corrective deep tissue treatment work as a Licensed Massage Practitioner. Other modalities I’m trained in are Swedish, trigger point, pin and stretching, cranial sacral, sports massage, and advanced massage techniques. As a Massage Therapist, treatment on patients is very physically demanding on the body, and it helps to be healthy and active. To cope with the physical demand on my body, I constantly work out, eat healthy, and I’ve dedicated most of my free time in becoming better at my lifelong passion: Running.
Carly ScottMy name is Carly Scott, and I am a License Massage Practitioner. I received my education from Everest College here in Vancouver, where I was trained in a variety of massage modalities & techniques. I decided to pursue a career in massage therapy because I have a passion for holistic healing & I am fascinated by the human body's innate capacity to heal & regenerate itself. It wasn’t long into my training that I discovered my specific interest to be in providing treatment/therapeutic based massage services, so after graduation, and after a lot of research, I decided to pursue my career working within a Chiropractic setting. I chose to work in Chiropractic because it beautifully supports my core belief that if given the proper care, the body has the power to thrive naturally. I strive to provide my clients with the most therapeutic treatment sessions possible by taking a very balanced and individualized approach to their care. I truly enjoy my work in massage & believe that the power of therapeutic touch, with the right intention, has the potential to change lives. Outside of work I enjoy learning new things, and spending time with my husband Russell and our three amazing kids Lily, Daisy & Jack.
