Overall my treatment is very simple, basically I want to identify a stressor to the body and eliminate it by the most conservative means. My treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, which do not include any “cracking or twisting” of the neck or spine. I use an variety of techniques that you can see below. In order to maximize the efficiency of my care, I utilize muscle testing.
Muscle testing is a manual, non-invasive technique, used to retrieve information from the body. It is much like the typical reflex test of tapping on the tendon of your knee that creates the unconscious knee-jerk response. Like any reflex, it is unrelated to muscle strength and works because of the body’s natural involuntary response to stimulus. Muscle testing was first discovered in the late 60’s by Doctor George Goodheart, and is used as a primary feedback mechanism, that evaluates the structural, chemical, and mental health of the patient.
I integrate this kind of testing to support all of the work I do, from Whole food nutritional supplements to Neuro-Emotional Technique. I feel that it provides a unique and holistic tool to finding the underlying causes of our patient’s health concerns.
Techniques I use are:
- Sacro – Occipital Technique (SOT)
- Thompson Drop Table
- Whole Food Nutrition
- Nutritional Counseling
- Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing)
- Neuro-Emotional Technique
- Chiropractic Adjustments (both manually and with the Arthrostim™)
- Soft Tissue work (both manually and with the Vibracussor™)
