DR. KIM SALLOUX, L.a.c, CLINICAL DIRECTOR
Dr. Kim Salloux comes from generations of healing professions – ministers, social workers, nurses, organic farmers and holistic healers as well as many athletes. Not surprisingly, she followed in the tradition. At Montana State University, she studied social work and psychology and competed as a runner at the NCAA collegiate level. Between her studies and the intensity of athletic training and competition, she felt imbalanced, despite being in excellent physical health. Something was missing, which led her to find yoga and meditation, and it was life changing. These practices brought her physical, emotional and spiritual balance – there was no turning back.
After graduating and practicing social work throughout rural Montana for several years (and also starting a coffeehouse and having twin daughters), she moved to San Francisco, where her yoga practice evolved into teaching by completing two consecutive teacher training programs. She has been leading classes and workshops ever since. The complementary nature of acupuncture, Chinese meridians, and yoga steered her to graduate studies in Traditional Chinese Medicine. First, at American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, then on to Five Branches University in San Jose where she completed both her Masters in
Chinese Medicine (TCM) and her doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM). During the same time, she completed her Asian Bodywork and Massage schooling (and somewhere in all of that was blessed with two more children). Everything came full circle as she has found her way back to Bozeman, the home where her studies began. She is thankful to be able to live and work in this paradise we call home.
Kim has treated many conditions with acupuncture and herbs: emotional and mental health; sports injuries; chronic internal diseases such as cancer, IBS, autoimmune and inflammatory conditions; common physiological issues related to the aging process, weight loss, insomnia, gender-specific health issues as well as common viral and bacterial illnesses and overall health and general well-being. Kim gets outstanding results for her patients by infusing nutritional, lifestyle, and yoga suggestions as appropriate within sessions.
To maintain her own health, Dr. Salloux relies on her deep love for the mountains: running trails, identifying wildflowers, the colors, the fresh air, the thunderstorms, every sense awakened. But then that’s why we all live here, right? She deeply cares for other beings, both humans and animals, and has a soft spot for the underprivileged and underrepresented. That is exactly what drew her to social work in the first place so many years ago. She understands we are all in this together. She draws strength and love from her family – her husband and four children. Sharing all of the above with them brings her the greatest joy.
JAMIE HEUSINKVELD, LMT
Jamie made the decision to pursue a career in bodywork in 2014 after a long stint battling chronic illness. After becoming bed ridden for a year in 2011 and eventually being told she had a month to live in 2012, Jamie was introduced to alternative medicine after many failed attempts to heal through traditional methods. As she truly had nothing to lose, she dove in and tried all therapies and treatments suggested. One of the therapies she utilized was visceral massage. The work resonated with her, and when she started feeling like herself again, Jamie knew professional bodywork was what she was destined to pursue as a career to heal others as she healed herself. So, she did- and she loves it!
Jamie specializes in Myofascial Release (MFR) and Thai Bodywork. However, she never uses just one modality in a bodywork session. She loves using a combination of modalities during massage sessions to guide her clients in achieving their wellness goals.
Her integrated approach to bodywork offers clients a truly unique experience and each session is customized to their specific needs. She is extremely passionate about assisting others on their healing journey and learning new modalities to continue to grow as a practitioner. Her strong touch and incredible presence are a combination you must experience.
To keep herself well, Jamie enjoys drawing, making her own skin hydrating oil blends, caring for her plants, and playing Dead Nation (possibly the best game ever!)
becoming a massage therapist?” To help her explore this new possibility, he offered to allow Donna to practice on him and to coach her through some basic massage techniques. That was the start to what has now been a career spanning two decades.
She practiced on friends and neighbors to see if others thought a career as a massage therapist would be a good fit, and everyone said “yes, go to Massage School. Immediately.” Donna started with the Heartwood Insititute of Integrative Medicine for a 100-hour intensive training, then decided to find a mentor and a curriculum to become certified. She attended the Myotherapy Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah for a 523-hour certificate. Her mentor, a local Massage Therapist, helped her through the certification and the start of her Massage Therapy practice. She spent five years working part-time for a physical therapist while she built her private practice, where she splits her time with Good Medicine.
Donna specializes in integrative and intuitive massage. A master at reading her patients’ voice and body, she customizes and integrates multiple techniques to bring the best therapeutic bodywork to each person to come across her table. Techniques include: Swedish, Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular, CranioSacral, Positional Release, Reflexology, Deep Tissue, Pre-natal (pregnancy), Myofacial Release (MFR), Gua Sha, and Oncology Massage (Cancer Care Bodywork).
Donna’s longest standing love affair is Montana. Being outdoors, being a part of the Bozeman community, and living a healthy lifestyle has brought her much love, peace, and healing. She takes care of herself by enjoying her love of cooking, walking, hiking, cross country skiing, bicycling, kayaking, reading, studying massage and health-related subjects, meditation, yoga, and spending time with her friends and family.
STEELE SEADER, LMT
Steele’s interest in the human body and how it operates began as an athlete playing soccer, growing up in Montana. After high school she became interested in Yoga and after several years of her own practice, she wanted to share this gift with others. In 2015 she completed a 200-hour training and began teaching classes at several gyms and studios. Steele went on to work as an assistant at a physical therapy clinic, where she witnessed firsthand the key role that movement plays in restoring people suffering with pain and dysfunction to active and healthy lives. Inspired, she wanted to explore this understanding on a deeper level and went back to school to become a massage therapist.
Steele was impacted and inspired by her massage teachers in Billings, MT who were shifting people’s lives for the better, along with her own, through therapeutic movement practice and massage therapy. Her belief in this life’s work is that the human body is sacred and we are the architect of our own healing. She truly and wholeheartedly enjoys being able to provide others with the healing power of physical touch, along with helping people regain a sense of awareness within their bodies. She enjoys her work so much it doesn’t feel like a “job”, it’s an honor to facilitate your healing. Steele specializes in Myofascial Release (MFR). MFR is a holistic, whole body, hands on technique that lengthens the body’s fascia to allow for more movement and agility.
To keep herself healthy she practices mindful movement, spending plenty of time in nature and enjoys a consistent meditation practice.
DR. RYAN LUNA, L.a.c.
Dr. Luna’s path towards Chinese medicine began at community college. He decided to take a semester to only enroll in classes that seemed interesting, with no thought of the future. When he read portions of the Dao de Jing (“The way and its power,” by Lao Zi) something inside of him changed and he decided that any future direction would involve Daoism, in some regard. He knew did not want to be a monk or a professor, which led him to Chinese medicine- thus beginning a journey that was a winding road.
His personal road involves a lot of education. Once he was introduced to the ideas of yin and yang, he was deeply in love and wanted to know more and more. As it turns out, yin yang theory encompassed much more than just the medical field. It was an entangled concept embedded in Chinese culture. Ryan then interrupted Chinese medicine school to attend Humboldt State University to learn more about Asian religion. During his time at HSU, he studied abroad for a year in China at Peking University learning Mandarin, then finishing Chinese medicine school in Austin, TX. It was this foundation that prepared Ryan for training with his Daoist mentor who is both a priest and a research scientist.
To keep himself balanced. Ryan enjoys practicing martial arts, reading science fiction, and continuing to research aspects of Chinese medicine and religion. We are so happy to welcome Dr. Luna to the next chapter of his career in Montana, with us at Good Medicine.
