Amon S. Ortman Founder of the Hotel & Clinic Practiced 1918 to 1956. The Ortman tradition began in 1915 when Amon Ortman provided chiropractic care for friends, relatives and neighbors using his farmhouse as the original clinic. As word spread of his success in treating aches and pains, thousands of people from surrounding areas flocked to the Ortman farm for treatment. Amon's younger brother Noah began to assist him in treating patients as the numbers grew. The clinic is unique in that it practices the Sitting-Up Technique exclusively. This "Ortman Technique" has become the Ortman trademark. This technique evolved from the way Amon Ortman initially treated patients at his farmhouse. He would have them sit down on anything convenient -- a chair, a bucket, a wagon tongue, a buggy seat - and apply his treatment. Since 1915, over three million patients coming from every state in the United States have received treatment.
