Chiropractic treatment affects the alignment of the joints in the spine and extremities, through direct gentle force, blocking, or range of motion techniques that help restore its proper function. The body’s structure can be affected by improper eating habits, poor posture, repetitive actions, unequal weight bearing, all which can lead to adaptive compensations which create more stress in the system and, then eventually, pain.
TBM: Total Body Modification
TBM is a method through which the status of the musculoskeletal system and the functioning
of internal organs can be evaluated and treated. Imbalance in the body’s energy systems and physiological processes can be evaluated and treated before serious problems arise. We retain an energy pattern on a physical level of all events in our lives, as well as genetic or environmental predispositions to certain conditions. TBM helps identify and clear these patterns with gentle manipulations or vertebral corrections.
Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing)
Applied Kinesiology, also known as “muscle testing” is a technique in which the body is used as a channel through which it relates information about its own condition. Using the body’s muscular system as an indicator, we are able to monitor the function of body systems. We can also evaluate muscle function for a specific joint and re-establish better facilitation of movement for the joint. By using simple stimulation to the origin and insertion of a particular muscle, normal functioning is re-established.
The Bowen technique helps promote healing, pain relief, correction of subluxations and the recovery of energy. The system uses a series of gentle, connective tissue manipulative procedures which are designed to realign the body, and balance and stimulate energy flows, thus empowering the body’s own healing process. These adjustments are precise, gentle moves performed on specific points of soft tissue and congruent with points on the meridian system. The body then makes subtle adjustments which help relieve tension, reduce pain, and initiate the healing process.
Biokinetics is a simple but effective technique for alleviating nerve interference. By locating dysfunctional neuroreceptors throughout the entire body and by a specific gentle correction, the brain/body function can correct itself and thereby restore health. These receptors are located in joints, muscles, skin and organs, and are stimulated by physical activity. Damage to muscles, weakness in internal organs, and emotional trauma can permanently disrupt the functions of the neuroreceptors, which in turn disrupt the function of the entire body. A specific, gentle, corrective stimulation clears the pathways and re-establishes proper communication and function.
The bones of the skull move slightly with each breath. The brain pulses in a continuous rhythm
of 6-12 cycles per minute. If this rhythm gets disrupted by trauma, dental work, or traumatic birth history, adverse symptoms can develop (facial, jaw, neck or back pain, dizziness, sinus trouble, headaches and tinnitus). Cranial-Sacral Therapy uses the body’s own mechanisms to improve brain and spinal cord functioning which helps to reduce tension and improve overall health. It is a very gentle hands-on technique.
EBI: Emotional Body Integration
Patients report that in spite of the work they have done with different practitioners, they cannot retain the benefits received from previous treatments and therapies. This can be the result of emotional traumas from the past which continue to affect the functioning of the body. Through EBI, the patient is able to identify what events in their history may be unresolved and therefore preventing them from making physical progress and enjoying emotional well-being. By using muscle testing as an indicator, blocks can be found, and the clearing of the interference via chakras, subluxations or organs alleviate the dysfunction and help restore appropriate function. The procedure then helps the patient establish new positive emotional beliefs which allow the body to shed old emotional habits.
