Chiropractic is a healing art based on the principle that the body is a self healing and self regulating organism, and the fact that the nervous system controls and coordinates all life functions. Its application is deeply rooted in science of the human body and the natural laws governing living systems regarding health and healing. Although chiropractic care is widely known to provide effective and lasting relief for back and neck pain, even people who do not have symptoms to benefit from specific chiropractic adjustments.

Why is this? The spine is the transducer of the relationship between the internal and external environment. It mediates the emotions and the stress response. The spine is also the modulator of body function, of your sense of self, of conscious actions and behaviors, and a sense of spiritual experience. Regular chiropractic adjustments promote a healthy and well functioning spine with the potential to create new levels of health and allow for adaptability to stress, injury, or illness.

As we go through life, we are all subjected to various types of physical, chemical (biochemical) and emotional stress. This stress can start in utero or during the birth process. When we experience more stress than the spine and nervous system can process, that stress can get stored as bound energy in the spine and neural structures surrounding the spine. These stress patterns stored in the body can and will accumulate with age. Gentle and honoring chiropractic adjustments release this stored stress, and then the body can use this energy to reorganize health and functioning at higher levels. Just as you brush your teeth twice a day to prevent tooth decay, regular adjustments can prevent or dissipate the accumulation of tension in your spine.

Chiropractic can be used as a foundational tool to transform and evolve you and your family’s health. Infants and children can benefit from adjustments as well. Studies show that children who are adjusted have fewer illnesses, more adaptability and resilience to life’s stresses. Chiropractic in children promotes optimal growth and development physically, emotionally, and socially.

Network Spinal Analysis, or NSA, is one of the chiropractic approaches used at this office. NSA is a light-touch chiropractic developed 30 years ago by revolutionary healer and living legend Dr. Donald Epstein, DC, who is based out of Longmont, Colorado. This cutting-edge approach teaches the brain to recognize and reduce tension in order to evolve health and wellness. Here is the definition of NSA from their website:

“Network Spinal Analysis Care is an evidence based approach to wellness and body awareness. Gentle precise touch to the spine cues the brain to create new wellness promoting strategies. Two unique healing waves develop that are associated with spontaneous release of spinal and life tensions, and the use of existing tension as fuel for spinal re-organization and enhanced wellness. Practitioners combine their clinical assessments of spinal refinements with patient’s self assessments of wellness and life changes. Greater self-awareness and conscious awakening of the relationships between the body, mind, emotion, and expression of the human spirit are realized through this popular healing work.”
