Many people are bringing themselves and their children to Doctor’s of Chiropractic each year, but why? Chiropractic is not just for pain relief, it is so much more.
Chiropractic is part of a vitalistic approach to health. What is vitalism? Practitioner‘s who practice in this type of model focus and are concerned with the whole person and discovering the underlying cause of dis-ease in the body. By identifying these causes, the practitioner can choose different supportive modes of care that will enhance natural and normal function of the body. By identifying causes of dis-ease it allows each person to become advocates of their own health and be able to make lifestyle choices that are conductive to their overall body function and wellness. This is different than the mechanistic approach to health care that focuses on symptoms and conditions that can be overcome using drugs and surgery.
The purpose of chiropractic care is to remove nerve interference to the body to restore the body’s natural healing ability. When interference can be removed the healing that results can be amazing.
Nervous system stress is caused by vertebral subluxations. Essentially what this means is that these are misalignments or distortions of the spinal bones, skull, hips and related tissue. These misalignments can stretch, irritate, impinge or interfere with the normal function of the nervous system which is our brain, spinal cord and associated nerves which can have a dramatic effect on the overall function of the body.
Nervous system stress is caused by physical, chemical and emotional stress. These stressors can start from the birth process, to a hard fall, medications, to increased stress and anxiety. For our bodies to function optimally we must minimize the number of stressors placed in it and make sure that from the top down our nervous system is functioning with the least amount of interference as possible.
Chiropractors are experts at evaluating and analyzing the spinal column and its related structures. It is our jobs to check for proper balance and proper function. When the spinal column is found to be functioning improperly the chiropractor can perform a very precise and corrective procedure called a chiropractic spinal adjustment. Typically, this is done with the doctor’s hands or a special instrument to gently and specifically correct the abnormal function. Chiropractors assist the spine and related structures to help bring them back to a state of balance and free the nervous system from stress.
Today individuals and families are more informed than ever and are choosing their health care choices accordingly. Many individuals are becoming more concerned with the adverse effect’s drugs may have on them and their children and are hesitant to just mask their symptoms. As individuals we all want to achieve an optimal state of health and because of this people are seeking health care options that support their body’s natural ability to heal and perform. Chiropractic care is one of those options. We all function better when we have our entire nervous system functioning at its best. Chiropractic is a safe and effective way to enhance our potential for optimal wellness.
Having a baby is one of the most special and intimate moments in woman’s life as well as her families. Chiropractic care is essential for the pregnant mama to be. Her body is now providing for two and it is important for mama to be functioning optimally for healthy baby development. As mom to three little kiddos and one on the way, I can attest to how important chiropractic care was for me and my body during pregnancy and beyond. Quite honestly, I don’t know how my body would have been had I not gotten adjusted regularly. I worked full time in practice while pregnant with my kids and chiropractic care helped tremendously with the daily stress of working, and when I felt better physically, emotionally I did better; which is so important when we are pregnant to keep our stress levels down. Don’t get me wrong life happens and things get crazy at times, but the more we can take care of our bodies throughout pregnancy and help our emotional state, the easier and more grounded we are. With that in mind, let’s dive in and see why chiropractic care is beneficial during pregnancy.
Now more than ever children need chiropractic care. With our current technological birthing techniques, it is important that a child’s nervous system be checked of interference to it as even our normal birthing process where operative devices are not used can stress the infant’s spine and nervous system. The result of this irritation to the infant’s system is many times the cause of common health complaints that we as chiropractors see in patients that we care for. Things such as colic, torticollis, breathing problems, nursing problems, sleep issues and chronic ear infections and digestive issues can be traced back to nervous system stress and interference. Because of the trauma that can occur at birth many parents are seeking to have their children checked by a chiropractor as soon as possible. As baby continues to grow, hold their head up, crawl, sit up, and walk which are all activities that affect movement and alignment of the spine, these are great times to have your child checked by a chiropractor. How can chiropractic help your child?
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many
beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that our “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If our “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Bridging the gap between Science and Spirit has been a passion of mine for many years now. There are a variety of energetic psychology methods and modalities that are designed to improve one’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Energetic modalities focus on your thoughts, feelings and emotions all while activating aspects of your bio-energy field (science). This usually involves touching or tapping certain places on your body such as meridians or chakras. By doing this it calms your body down, and clears aways stress and trauma that may have resided within that field. The result is being able to move on and break through to more self empowerment and an expansive life.
Backed by over 125 articles and 70+randomized trials, energetic psychology modalities have shown effectiveness in helping with anxiety, PTSD, depression and many others. Energetic approaches can rapidly help people reduce strong painful emotions, process traumatic events, shift limiting beliefs and live with greater love.
The Holistic Living Experience offer’s a completely unique and tailored holistic approach in order to address your mental, emotional, and physical health. This is done with a comprehensive program that combines the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of body, mind and spirit.
