A new chiropractic practice in Ashland celebrates its opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony this week and an open house next week.

Dr. Luke Schmelzle has announced the opening of Tail of the Sun Network Care at 567 Fair Oaks Ave. in Ashland, in the octagon building in Meadowbrook Park at North Mountain.

Dr. Schmelzle is a graduate of Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, South Carolina. While studying chiropractic, Schmelzle obtained certification in Network Spinal Analysis (NSA). This modern technique involves very gentle cues to the spine, which allow the nervous system to reset and to release stress. A former school principal, he also earned a bachelor's degree, as well as a master's in educational administration. His business is the newest member of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce.

He said in press release that the mission of Tail of the Sun Network Care is to reduce or reverse the effects of stress, trauma, and aging and to transform detrimental neurological patterns to facilitate peace, ease, and adaptability and unleash more energy for life.

The ribbon cutting ceremony and opening is set for 11 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 4, and the open house for 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14. The public is welcome to attend.
