Shift toward optimal health

Thrive Wellness Center

Offering chiropractic care throughout Fayetteville

As a top-rated chiropractic office in Northwest Arkansas, Thrive Wellness Center is proud to educate and adjust the community of Fayetteville and surrounding areas toward optimal health.

The natural state of the human body is to be healthy, which means illness, discomfort and disease are dysfunctions. That's why we believe that every person who wants to be healthy should have their nervous system checked by a chiropractor. 

At our practice, we help people THRIVE and realize their full potential. We strive for excellence in everything we do and seek to connect each individual with their God given potential. We consider the whole health of our patients as well as their lifestyles to reveal underlying causes of discomfort and debilitation. We help our patients achieve better health, full functionality and optimal performance. And we truly believe that patients and families under our care live healthier, safer lives.

Laura Manamon

Practice Manager

Laura and her husband Scott relocated from their native Cape Cod, MA to Northwest Arkansas in 2016 with The United States Air Force. In addition to her Boston accent, she brings with her over 30 years of clinical medical office administration and management experience, with a strong focus on patient advocacy, education and wellness. 

A lifelong migraine sufferer, Laura feels truly blessed to be a part of the Thrive team and has seen the benefits of chiropractic care in her life. 'I spent most of my life missing out, I missed work, I missed time spent with my children, I missed opportunities, but Dr. Ben put me on a therapeutic plan to not only help migraines when they hit, but has practically eliminated them altogether! In addition, I’ve noticed a drastic overall improvement in my health — I rarely get sick and have more energy to enjoy my life. It’s so exciting to be part of a team that is helping to achieve miracles in peoples lives.” No longer debilitated by the pain and limitations of a life with migraines, she is enjoying life to the fullest: traveling, cruising, camping, hiking, watching her beloved New England sports teams, volunteering in her community and her part time job, working for Live Nation as a VIP tour rep production assistant.

Philip shepherd

Rehab Director

Philip joined the Thrive team in December 2021, bringing with him a strong focus on wellness and a passion for body therapies. A native Arkansan, spending most of his life right here in Fayetteville, he studied Journalism at the University of Arkansas, during which time he was a writer for the Arkansas Traveler Newspaper. After taking some time off from school, Philip did some serious soul searching, which led him to practicing yoga. Soon afterward, he earned his 200-hour and 500-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Certifications from the Circle Yoga Shala, a school for yoga, creative movement and self-inquiry, located deep in the Ozark Mountains near Jasper, AR.

He is continuing his studies there to be a Yoga Therapist, making him a candidate for their 1000-hour Yoga Therapy Program which is accredited through the International Association of Yoga Therapists. Yoga Therapy addresses the body, mind, emotion and even spiritual aspects of the individual and is a unique and customized approach to health and well-being. When he is not busy as our Rehab Director or teaching yoga, Philip is a part time musician and has played locally for more than 10 years! He loves the outdoors and enjoys soaking up all that the Natural State has to offer. Philip’s enthusiasm and dedication to the wellness of our patients has taken the rehab floor at Thrive to a new level of care and professionalism that is noticed across the practice.
