WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC? Let's keep it real! Our bodies have this dope intelligence ALREADY within us, that can heal our cuts, digest our food, make our hearts beat/our lungs breathe, AND even create new life in 9 months without us telling it to do so. Pretty cool, huh???
Through chiropractic, we are directly addressing the system that controls this within your body – which is your NERVOUS SYSTEM, located INSIDE the SPINE & SKULL. So, like a computer, in order to keep any machine fully functioning, the central control system must effectively and efficiently communicate with all parts. The human body is no different.
Chiropractors are dedicated to listening to your symptoms and knowing where your body is misaligned. We make sure that there are no interferences within your spine to decrease pain and dysfunction and increases the body’s natural ability to thrive. That’s why chiropractic adjustments can be beneficial to EVERYONE, including pregnant women and their sweet, new little people.
WHAT IS DYNAMIC BODY BALANCING? (an extension of Craniosacral Therapy (CST)) Dynamic Body Balancing (DBB) is a technique grounded in the same in-depth principles of CranioSacral Therapy, but with the addition of Myofascial Unwinding & Bio-field Therapies (basically this is CST coupled with working with your body above the muscles on a surface level). This is a beautiful form of hands-on care that restores balance to the mind, body and spirit that is truly beneficial & appropriate for all ages from infancy to adulthood. This SELF-DIRECTED sequential protocol can lead to a more permanent resolution for your overall well-being.This hands on approach is highly recommended if your body is needing to:
release STORED physical and emotional trauma that is causing you to experience constant pain and/or dysfunction with minimal relief.
work on significant emotional or physical traumas of the past that is no longer serving you.

IS CHIROPRACTIC ONLY NEEDED IF I HAVE PAIN OR OTHER SYMPTOMS? No, chiropractic goes beyond pain relief. Actually, its premise is all about creating more connection and balance throughout your body, which can result in (examples):

LABOR | improving the efficiency and time of your labor and birth.
POSTPARTUM | helping you with adaptation to motherhood by supporting your breastfeeding experience, expedite your healing process by removing built up tension throughout your body, and your baby's body too.. which can typically be ignored.
