Any number of factors, such as falls, accidents, stress, tension, or over-use can cause improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine, called subluxations. These events can interfere with the vital exchange between the nerves, tissues and organs. Although many people think of back and neck pain when they think of chiropractic medicine, in fact subluxations can result in a multitude of symptoms. And that is where chiropractic is different: we treat the source of the problem, not just the symptom.
Acupuncture is an extremely safe, all-natural drug-free therapy, yielding no negative side effects, just feelings of relaxation and well-being. You may experience vague numbness, heaviness, tingling, or dull ache where the needle is inserted. All reactions are good and a sign that the treatment is working.
Many of today’s health problems are caused by chronic stress and conditions of modern living and working. Prolonged mental and physical stress may lead to tension headaches, backaches, digestive issues, and an impaired immune system. Massage has a multitude of benefits including general relaxation, muscle relaxation, reduced anxiety, and relief from the negative effects of stress.
Integrative Medicine asks how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become oriented to identifying the complexity of disease. The Integrative Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness.
