A note about testimonials: because there so many factors which can cause a particular symptom, there is no guarantee that you would experience similar results for a similar problem. These reports are mainly here to give you an idea of the breadth and quality of my work. Only a personal, hands-on evaluation can provide you with a realistic idea of your own situation.
Bad Auto Accident
“Within a few days of a double roll-over in my car, I developed some serious neck, shoulder and low back/hip pain. I also began experiencing debilitating brain fog, short-term memory loss and difficulty concentrating, along with physical and emotional fatigue and a general malaise that were not at all normal for me.
“My massage therapist referred me to Dr. Dane Roubos, who treated with me with CranioSacral Therapy, energy healing, his special muscle work, and many other gentle therapies. He was patient, understanding and had a refreshing lack of agenda as he let my body lead the way.
“In just a little over 2 months I’ve regained at least 90% of my function, and feel like myself again. Working with Dr. Dane has been an uplifting and enlightening experience. I feel extremely grateful and would recommend his wonderful work to anyone!”
Paula Bandy, Ashland, OR
Constant Shoulder & Arm Pain
“After being in nearly constant pain for five years from a shoulder injury, I am almost free of it after just three visits, thanks to Dr. Dane. I worked with many other doctors over those years, including a chiropractic shoulder specialist, and none of them were able to bring an end to my pain. Dr. Dane did!
“My quality of life has been greatly improved as a result of his gifts and I strongly recommend him to anyone. You can’t miss when you find someone who is this skilled at getting to the root of the problem!”
Rev. Kelley Springer, Talent, OR
Low Back Pain
“I want to recommend Dr. Dane Roubos as an incredibly gentle, intelligent and effective healer for spine issues.
“I recently developed severe tension, spasms and radiating pain in and around my lower back. I have gone to chiropractors for years, and the usual experience would have been painful adjustments that probably would not hold for more than a couple of days.
“When I saw Dane, he had me lie on a comfortable massage table. He did some very gentle touch – working mostly through my lymph system and general energy to release the tight joints and muscles. It was so gentle that I actually fell asleep a couple of times. After I awoke and then rested for a while on the table, I got up and noticed an immediate difference. The pain had gone from an 8 to a 1 on a 0-10 scale, and the vertebrae that I had felt was out seemed to be straightened. “
A few days later I did a 7 hour car trip – usually hard on my back – and noticed nothing. That was the surprising thing – I knew that I was better because I simply was not thinking about my back and had great energy at the end of the drive.
“One thing that struck me was Dane’s depth of knowledge and wisdom. I highly recommend his unique, caring, gentle and powerful work.”
Duane Light, Attorney, Ashland, OR
Shoulder & Arm Pain
“I had shoulder pain radiating into my arm for three weeks, and sought help from another natural health provider, with little change. I had to cut back on work due to declining range of motion and increasing pain.
“Then, in one session with Dane I was relieved of 95% of my symptoms. I learn more about myself each time I see him, due to his astute inquiries and thorough testing. After sessions, I feel deeply nourished and held in the highest regard. I appreciate being seen from a whole person perspective.
Dane holds a “safe space,” and I get to deeply experience my integrated self…body, heart, mind and spirit. I am so grateful for his help, and highly recommend his work!”
Holly MacGowan – Ashland, OR
Chronic Shoulder Pain & Limitation
“Chronic shoulder/rotator cuff pain has been limiting my arm movement for many years; an old athletic injury. Other practitioners have worked on it, giving improvement for a day or two, at best.
“After three visits with Dane (over two weeks), the pain is almost gone and the range of pain-free movement is greatly improved, much to my delight! The treatments were deeply relaxing, healing far more than just the shoulder, as he moved his gentle healing skill to the liver, lymphatics and other tissues related to the shoulder problem.
“He also gave dietary suggestions which I’ve found very helpful. This is good work!”
C. Martin, Entrepreneur – Ashland, OR
Back, Shoulder & Arm Injury
“I slipped on some ice and fell hard on my right elbow, injuring my arm, shoulder and back. I have 9 fused vertebrae, and my back doesn’t handle shock very well. Within three hours my back and arm hurt so much I felt nauseous with pain. I could hardly raise my arm, and had a 6 hour drive the next day.
“Dane went out of his way to make a house call, and gently untied the knots and greatly eased the pain in one session. I was able to make the drive with a functioning arm, using only a low dose of pain meds. I don’t think I could have done it without his help!”
Shaktari Belew, Holistic Educator, Ashland, OR
Comprehensive Approach, Nurturing Integration
“Dane is one of the best kept secrets in Ashland! After working in the field of Energy Healing and Human Mastery for over 30 yrs, I am grateful to find a ‘true healing professional’ with such a rich, comprehensive approach and mastery to work with.
“After each session I feel nurtured, fine tuned and so much more integrated with the spiritual acceleration I continuously go through. His work is a great blessing in a time when we are birthing a new Human.”
Diana Gazes, Mount Shasta, CA
Effective, Mulit-faceted Approach
“I have experienced many forms of body work and chiropractic care. As an acupressurist, I am very sensitive to energy and particular about how practitioners work with me. I have been extremely pleased with both the healing experience and the effectiveness of Dane’s work. He consistently got to the emotional and spiritual roots of the problems I came in with (various pains in my neck, joints and back).
“Dane’s approach addresses all aspects of healing and I rarely needed to come back for the same problem. I feel truly blessed to have found him and his work!”
Nancy Saslow, Acupressurist & Energy Healer, Minnetonka, MN
Chronic Low Back & Leg Pain
“By the time my acupuncturist referred me to Dr. Roubos, I had seen at least five specialists throughout the Midwest and various alternative therapy practitioners regarding my low back and radiating leg pain. I was soon able to walk without pain for the first time in eight months.
“Dane succeeding, where other therapists could not, is due to his deep, deep understanding of the human body, his ability to move seamlessly from one healing modality to another, and his spiritual understanding of the mind-body-soul connection. Dane is a true healer and I am forever grateful for his work with me.”
Kathleen Larsen, Retired Teacher, Northfield, MN
No One Like You
“I might be contemplating a visit to Ashland for treatment. I have found no one that can do the kind of work that you do, with the positive results. I find some therapists who almost have a piece of what you do, but the operative words are ‘almost’ and ‘a piece.’
“Isoloated, the pieces do not work as well as when they are applied in concert with each other . . . to say nothing of the healing “magic” you possess. The residents of Ashland are fortunate to have you practicing again!”
Kathleen Larsen, Retired Teacher, Minnesota
“I suffered from a pretty severe headache for over a month and tried several things, including heavy doses of ibuprofen. Nothing worked. Within hours after seeing Dr. Roubos, my headache was gone and has not returned in months.
“Clearly, there was something physical going on, but it is very clear to me now that the energetic dimensions had as much or more to do with my condition as the purely physical aspects. Dr. Roubos treated both of these dimensions with great skill and care.”
Mark Langseth, College Administrator, St. Paul, MN
Chronic Hip and Leg Pain
“I had chronic hip and leg pain for which I had sought help from an orthopedic sports specialist, physical therapist (for six months) and a chiropractor (for 2 years).
“In just a few visits Dane took my healing further than the other three together. The pain is almost gone and my full flexibility is returning. I always leave his office feeling I’ve taken another step forward on my path to total health!”
Laura Erdman-Luntz, Co-Director, Center for Healthy Living, Eden Prairie, MN
Careful, Competent & Supportive
“Dane has been part of my health care team since 1988 and he’s the most careful and competent diagnostician and healthcare provider I’ve seen. He thoroughly explores the relationship of one symptom to another and to the whole person before considering treatment options.
“He skillfully utilizes approaches from multiple healing perspectives. I especially appreciate his support and creativity in designing self-help techniques for me to use so that I participate in restoring my own health.”
Bill Monson, College Administrator, Minnetonka, MN
Low Back & Leg Pain, with Swelling
“After a car accident, I developed severe pain in my low back, calves and ankles, along with swelling (edema) of both feet and ankles. I couldn’t stand very long, or walk very far. My medical doctors gave me pain pills and relaxants which relieved much of the pain, but not the edema or stiffness.
“Then I saw Dr. Roubos for 14 visits. After ten visits I was able to start dancing again. By the end, I was in better condition than before the accident, and the edema was gone. I want to stress the visits were 1 1/2 hours long, and all the work was done personally by Dr. Roubos. The results were amazing! I was 75 years old at the time.”
John Borden, Retired, St. Paul, MN
Lower Back Pain
“I had hurt my lower back in a fall. The pain was severe and I could barely put on my socks after a week. Dr. Roubos fit me into his schedule that very morning, despite being on his way out of town. I didn’t think one session would have such dramatic effects, but later that day I realized the pain had completely gone! As in other interactions with Dr. Roubos, he used a combination of physical and energetic work to treat my condition, and gave me greater insights into the possible causes beyond the obvious fall.
“He also discovered a chronic low back weakness, borne of a decades old injury, and provided me with helpful exercises to get that part of my back more fully integrated with the rest of my body. Clearly, Dane’s multi-faceted approach to treatment and prevention is a highly effective alternative care strategy.”
Mark Langseth, College Administrator, St. Paul, MN
Comprehensive Approach, Deep Relaxation
“Dr. Dane Roubos is an exceptional practitioner, blessed with the rare ability to combine the physical, mental-emotional and spiritual aspects of healing. He treats the physical body with an amazing range of techniques that target specific areas with precision.
“He also brings awareness to the subtle-energy body where imbalance often begins, restoring and supporting through imagery and self-discovery. During Dane’s sessions I always felt a great sense of calm which magnified itself by the end with a wonderful lightness that made me want to rest peacefully, the result of an astute practitioner.”
Dehanna Rice-Inkles, Yoga Instructor, NYC
In my experience with Dr. Dane Roubos, I have found him to be a
most generous, empathetic, and caring healer. He has been helping
me with some difficult issues with calmness, ease and
professionalism. He has the knowledge and experience in using many
different modalities, and his combination of intuition and practical
sense works to serve his clients very well.
G.E., Business Consultant
My fees are based on time spent with my clients. Any additional time I devote to record-keeping or research is just part of the package.
Quoted fees are based on cash payment at the time of service. They are discounted 15% from my regular fee when I am billing insurance. Cash and personal checks are accepted. I also accept credit cards via PayPal. Sorry, I do not carry a balance for clients who are paying cash. Please see Insurance, below if you have insurance.
|For new or prospective clients – see below.
Allows time for a good evaluation and initial treatment
I offer a sliding fee scale (between $60 and $120)
for kids under 18, single moms, and people on Medicare.
(Fees are subject to change)
Please see Services for different types of visits available
Package Option – Save another 10%
Clients have the option of purchasing treatment time in advance at a discount. You can purchase $500 in treatment time for $450.
This package is offered to support those who are interested in improving their health on a deeper level than 2 or 3 visits would allow.
It’s a great deal for clients who need more than a few visits, or those who wish to come in on a regular basis for on-going support. I recommend that you have 1 or 2 visits first, to make sure it’s a good fit for you.
Cancellation: if a client wishes to receive a refund for unused package time, they will relinquish the 10% discount on the time they’ve already used, and pay a $10 processing fee. They’ll receive a check for the balance.
Free Evaluation & Treatment Mini-Session
This is available to prospective clients who want to meet me and get a sense of how I might approach their personal health situation. It gives us both a chance to see if we might work well together. Please fill out the short version of the New Client form and bring it with you. If you cannot print internet forms, we will arrange for you to fill out the form in the office.
The free 20-minute session is usually done in person. This allows us to actually test a few things and usually give you a “mini-treatment” so you can experience a little of my work directly before you make a decision.
In some cases, a verbal consultation may be done over the phone. People living out of the area who plan to travel to Ashland for care would be an example of an initial phone consult.
Personal Injury Ins (Auto Accidents, Injuries in stores, etc)
The only insurance I currently accept “assignment” on. It includes any auto-related injuries, even if you wack yourself with the car door getting out. Stores and property owners also have personal injury policies which cover injuries on their property.
Assignment means that I do all the billing in these cases, and wait for payment. You must report the accident to the insurance company, and get a claim number before we do any evaluation or treatment.
Regular Health Insurance
You pay for the visit at the time (20% discount), and I provide you with a statement that has the necessary codes. You can submit this to your insurance company for reimbursement. There is no extra charge for this, unless the insurance company requests a report, etc.
If you plan to use this option, you can print my Insurance Coverage Worksheet and use it to call your insurance company with specific questions. This will tell us which procedures are actually covered by your specific policy, and other “fine print” information. It’s worth the time to do this, because it will help us avoid unpleasant surprises.
If your insurance company requests any report or paperwork related to a statement, I will need to charge you for the time to complete it – but only with your authorization. I would give you an estimate based on what they’re asking for.
Medicare only pays for chiropractic spinal adjustments. They do not cover any of the wonderful therapies I offer, which actually reduce the number or frequency of adjustments you need to reach your goal. So I would rather give you a good discount along with highly effective therapies, skip the hassle of billing with Medicare, and pass the savings on to you.
Cancellation and Missed Appointment Fees
There is a $25 fee for canceling a visit the same day.
OOPS! You forgot your appointment altogether, and didn’t call Dr. Dane! You are responsible for your scheduled visit time at a rate of $60 per hour. This is pretty lenient compared to most offices.
Showing up late for your visit
The clock starts running at your appointment time, so you will just have a shorter visit that day, but pay the usual fee for your scheduled visit. Here’s the fun part – if I’m late for our visit, I will make it up to you in time on that visit or another day.
