Meet the Team
Dr. Jeremy Maass
Owner, Clinic Director
I am originally from Okarche, Oklahoma, born and raised there until I went off to college at Oklahoma State University to become an Athletic Trainer (with that said however, I was born and bred a Sooner and nothing will ever change that). I wanted to go become an athletic trainer after suffering a couple knee injuries of my own. I have torn my ACL 3 times now, all of which were non-contact injuries, meaning I didn’t get hit, they just ruptured while running and cutting. This means that I most likely had some pretty substantial imbalances that predisposed me to these injuries that, if they would have been treated appropriately, maybe I would not have ever gotten injured at all. That became my goal. To find and fix problems before they are problems. Fast forward into my athletic training career and I soon realized that there were certain things that I wasn’t allowed to do as an athletic trainer, and a whole lot more that I had to learn about the human body, so I enrolled in chiropractic college in Kansas City. I quickly became fascinated by a new world that I was learning about, one that revolved around the brain and nervous system. All of a sudden everything started to make so much sense. All of the difficult cases that don’t typically respond to treatment are most likely due to the fact that nobody ever looked deep enough! If you chase any problem back far enough, you will eventually work yourself back to the brain. Therefore, if you are not analyzing brain function, you’re simply not doing thorough job. With that said, if I am going to truly take care of you, we have to look at everything. Your body is not a bunch of different pieces that function individually. Your body consists of several, beautifully interconnected, systems that rely on one another to function as a unit. In order to get one part of you healthy, we have to look at the whole. If you decide to trust me enough to entrust me with your health, then I promise you I will do just that.

Venicia Maass RN, BSN
I was born in Texas and lived there for 10 years before my family moved to Kansas. In Kansas I played multiple sports, was homeschooled throughout high school, and worked at Chick-fil-A for several years. I was heavily involved in Church and volleyball, and in high school one of my biggest accomplishments was being named the MVP of the national championship volleyball team. I had to take a break from volleyball after high school, but I’m still down to step on a court now!
I knew I wanted to go into nursing school after my dad had open heart surgery, so I was very focused and graduated from KU medical center nursing program in three years and began working under my dad‘s cardiothoracic surgeon. I was able to have lots of experience with a wide range of patient populations in my nursing job and I had an awesome manager who showed me how to lead well. I met Jeremy when we were both serving in high school ministry at church; we got married, he graduated chiropractic school, we opened Motus, got our first puppy, took our first international trip, and then got pregnant, all in the first year.
I love working at Motus because I get to see people actually become healthy! This is quite different than my experience in the hospital, and then I get to work with my husband as well!! We have two young boys, and being a mom is the best job in the world! Many times, you might see me at the office with a little one attached to me (my high heels have gotten considerably shorter since becoming a mom). We believe you were Designed For More and I’d love to help you in any way I can.

Licensed Massage Therapist
I grew up in Northeast Oklahoma where I graduated from Adair High School. I became interested in the different muscles groups and how they function while being part of the powerlifting program. I held onto that interest and turned it into a passion for helping others with their soft tissue problems. Later, I attended Brookline College where I received my degree in Massage Therapy. After graduation, I quickly became a professional member of the AMTA (American Massage Therapy Association)and received my license from the State of Oklahoma Massage Therapy Board.
I am proficient in many modalities of soft tissue manipulation. These include deep tissue, Pin and Stretch, Swedish massage, TPT (Trigger Point Therapy), Myofascial Release Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Cryotherapy, Cupping, and Therapeutic Massage. I am also trained to work with all age groups that range from prenatal and infant to adult and geriatric patients.
I am fully dedicated to helping you overcome any soft tissue problems that you encounter, so that you can be free to live your best life possible.
I was born in Kansas City, MO and loved growing up there. After I got married, I moved to Albuquerque, NM where I started working for a chiropractor. Before that, I had never been to a chiropractor or knew much about what they did. Since then, I have worked for 3 different chiropractors doing various jobs but the one I really enjoyed was being a receptionist. Each employer was a little different as to how they approached treatment in their office and I saw what worked, and what did not. I truly believe that with the combination of adjustments, massage, and rehab exercises, is when people begin to heal. I have always had a passion for working with and helping people so when I met everyone who worked at Motus, I knew that they shared that same passion.
When I’m not working, I enjoy watching movies, doing puzzles, going to amusement parks, and taking rides with my husband on our motorcycle.
I grew up in DeKalb, Illinois which is just about an hour west of Chicago. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelors of Science in Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics in 2020. I always played sports growing up and was a right side blocker on a national volleyball team throughout high school. During that time, I underwent three reconstructive knee surgeries and was unfortunately not able to continue playing. Through that time of recovery, I gained an appreciation for how the body works, heals, and functions, and one of the most important aspects of a healthy body and lifestyle is nutrition.
I love getting to share this passion with others everyday and enjoy working with a group of people who have a similar outlook on health and have a desire to help people just as I do.
In my free time, I enjoy weight lifting, cooking, creating new healthy recipes, and spending time with friends and family.
Chief Operations Officer
I was born in Austin, Texas but truly raised in Olathe, Kansas. As a young kid I played multiple sports, basketball, baseball, and football (only lasted 2 years for football as I did not like getting hit). After my freshman year of high school I moved to San Antonio, Texas. Here I continued to play baseball all through high school.
Since high school I have been attending the University of Texas at San Antonio for my business finance degree. While in school this amazing opportunity here at Motus Health came available to me. Since joining Motus Health a lot has happened in my life, I have picked up a hobby of officiating high school basketball games which I have grown to love. Who knew getting yelled at everyday was fun. Also, I am now engaged to my beautiful fiance who has been with me since sophomore year in high school. Plus we are looking for a house to buy.
Joining Motus Health has been truly amazing. I am truly lucky to lead a team of such amazing people who come in every single day ready to work hard and want to see the best for the patients. Motus Health is different from most health facilities that I have ever been to because here we truly get down to the root cause of peoples problems and fix it. We do not try to just cover it up with a pill or be a quick fix solution. We are here to truly help the patient have their life back.
Structure Dictates Function
We are bridging the gap between structure and function in regards to your health. What that means is that we focus first and foremost on the physical structure of your body. That is step one. The foundation. From then on, we can look deeper into fine-tuning the function of your body, but that must be our starting point.
When we talk about the structure, we are talking more specifically about the muscles and joints of your body. When they are lined up and moving well, your body and brain both function better. Here at Motus Chiropractic, we strive to be excellent at finding and fixing movement problems; thereby correcting the structure of your body. Motus is a Latin word that simply means motion. That name was chosen as the name of our clinic because science has recently shown how truly vital healthy bodily motion is for your brain as well as your overall health. When the structure of your body is sound and solid, then you begin to function better and heal appropriately. Structure dictates function from a neurological perspective; therefore, we fully address both when treating you.
You’ll notice that we use a lot of techniques here, however all of them have one primary goal in mind. That is to improve brain function which we know will lead to a higher quality of life for you; regardless of what you are facing. The most efficient way that we are able to impact brain health is through correcting joint motion in your body. Thinking back to the concept that structure dictates function, the muscles and joints in your body provide communication signals to your brain, and your brain is then able to react and adapt as needed. With that in mind, the exact opposite is also fine-tuning. When joints and tissues stop to move the way they are designed to, then your brain gets fewer signals and it is left in the dark, so to speak. That’s why our treatments will always start with correcting structure and movement problems first. That’s step one. From there, there are a million pathways we can go down if needed, but correcting the way your muscles and joints move during your daily life is our first priority.
"I was a hard sell to chiropractic, so it took me a while to understand how much it could do for me. Dr. Maass is very knowledgeable about the human body and really seems to care about helping me. He was very thorough in finding out exactly where my pain was located and he explained to me exactly how he could help me. When he adjusted me I felt almost immediate relief and it got even better the next couple of days. I keep going back and getting adjusted now because I've finally experienced a better quality of life! Thank you Dr. Maass!"
"I was dealing with sharp shooting pain in my lower back down into my left leg and into my toes that would make it very difficult to sit for very long. I now have zero symptoms of any kind. All of my concerns were addressed. Dr. Maass is the best chiropractor I've ever seen and the only chiropractor to help me see results. I am now living pain free!"
"Dr. Maass was a great doctor to work with. He shows care and passion when working with patients and does his best to make sure you are comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a chiropractor who will take the time to listen."
