Chiropractic philosophy and care and has been at the leading edge of health care for over a century. While leading edge scientists are currently validating the existence of a unifying energetic field, Chiropractic has always embraced the philosophy that there is a Universal life force.
Within our amazing bodies there exists an innate wisdom that coordinates and motivates every action and reaction, including healing. Vital to the transmission of this innate wisdom is our nervous system that serves as the body’s main communication system.
Physical, emotional sensory, mental and chemical inputs can create patterns within the nervous system called subluxations. In releasing these patterns, which are stored in the body as tension, we create more freedom, flexibility and ease. Through releasing these patterns, you will feel more present, less connected to the way things “used to be” in your body and in your life. These can range from chronic symptoms, old thought patterns, and processes, becoming truly part of your past.
As a chiropractor, it is not my job to change people’s health, but to let them experience more of who and how they are. If that experience creates change because of discomfort or increased awareness, that is welcomed, but not because I think they "should" change, or because it will make someone feel better. My work isn’t about people feeling better. It is about people better feeling. So many of us are so blocked we don’t know how to feel anymore and we think the absence of pain means we feel good. It is not in the absence of feeling that we grow, but in the presence of it, whether good or bad, that we can appreciate what it means to be alive. And that is what the adjustment does. It wakes us up to our lives and to the possibilities inherent within, giving us the ability to choose differently and with greater awareness and consciousness. It isn’t about getting out of pain. It is about stepping in to our pain, so that we may understand why it exists and let go of it. It is there for a reason. When people are ready, I am there to serve them in their process of unfolding health and well-being.
