WHO ARE We?
Pro Massage & Chiropractic, an integrated wellness center, was created through a clear understanding of the skeletal structure as it interacts with the muscular system to eliminate or manage the pain caused by structural dysfunction and injury. When the musculoskeletal system is aligned and relaxed, you will feel your body pain ease.
As we move through life, different things influence our posture as well as the structure including injuries, accidents, repetitive motion as well as being sedentary. Chronic and acute conditions can be addressed, through chiropractic care and massage therapy, to achieve a level of optimal health and experience a more pain-free life. Where people in pain can become a better version of themselves—a place for healing.

Carla Scarbrough, CPC, Practice Adminstrator
Carla was born in New York City but was raised in Smyrna TN. She is a country girl at heart and does not claim her northern roots. After graduating from high school, Carla began her career with UFW Insurance Fund, she was a claims examiner/auditor. In 2001, Carla left UFW Insurance and went to work for a Medical Billing Company. She loved the thrill of disagreeing with the insurance company to help get claims paid for patient and physicians. In 2004, she ventured out and opened her own Medical Billing and Practice Management company, which she still owns. In 2006, Carla became a certified professional coder through the AAPC.
In 2011, she partnered with one of her medical billing clients to form a multi-modality pain management facility chain which Carla managed while still running her Medical Billing Company. However, she loathed the fact so many of the patients were only being given prescriptions to mask their pain instead of receiving insight and holistic approach to help alleviate or eliminate the patients’ pain. She felt like there had to be a better way to help people recover. In 2014, she met Celisa Ellis with ProMassage Health Solutions.
When Carla met Celisa, it was very apparent they shared the same vision for helping people with their pain. Celisa was the practitioner helping the patients and Carla was the practice administrator helping to grow the business into what Celisa had envisioned for years.
Carla loves her role with ProMassage & Chiropractic Integrative Wellness Center. Most days, she is in her office in the back working on marketing, payroll and all the other things that keep the business running so everyone else can continue to help our patients each and every day.

Victoria Dolanch, CTA, CTX
Victoria grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania with her parents, brother, and grandparents. Her grandpa was a biologist at the time, and would spend hours teaching her about anatomy and biology. This sparked her interest in science from a young age, and planted the seed for greater aspirations to work in the medical field. After obtaining some experience working in regular medical clinics, she saw that there was something missing. She found the patients were being treated for the symptoms of their diagnoses, but they were not treating or explaining the root cause of the problem.
This is when she developed a passion for chiropractic, functional medicine, and integrative wellness. Working with patients on how to treat the root cause of the problem rather than treating only the symptoms, has allowed her to see life changing results for patients first-hand, which has been a dream come true for her. Victoria is grateful to be able to do what she loves, at a place she loves even more.
