Well Adjusted

You deserve to live an extraordinary life. It all begins with a healthy brain and body. 

As humans we live dynamic lives full of wonder, joy, possibility as well as obstacles and challenges. In a human lifetime there can be great moments of ease and also chaos. One of the greatest secrets of chiropractic is that adjustments are delivered to optimize and sustain life rather than to treat or fix. 

Those who are well adjusted are the most resilient and adaptable. Chiropractic Research with Heart Rate Variability shows that those who are well adjusted have greater heart rate variability and thereby greater adaptability in their lives. The chiropractic adjustments helps the body to unwind tension, unlocking cellular memory in order to integrate unresolved and stored tension. Postural stress and tension can be re-integrated as energy for life sustaining foundations; a heart beating more efficiently, lungs breathing more proficiently or a mind thinking and processing with greater clarity. 

During the chiropractic adjustment as we stretch, breathe, and unwind tension our circulation increases, synaptic changes occur and the underlying energy flows. When we improve our body’s awareness, aka proprioception, this is an update for your cerebellum, vestibular system, parietal and frontal lobes of your brain.

Chiropractic is sacred and reverent to Life. A well adjusted human is not one whose journey is void of challenges, it is one that is better prepared to handle, integrate and move through them. Chiropractic honors the power and purpose of the innate wisdom of the body—it is a state of being present with the body and speaking to the body and discovering exactly what it needs. The adjustment is the removal of interferences, supporting the body in its awareness and gathering of stray energies to allow the body to reveal and heal. The adjustment is an incredible tool in supporting the way the mind body is operating, breathing, moving and expressing itself. Chiropractic can support the body in moving though a variety of stresses that may present in life such as recovering injury, increased range of motion, preparing or healing from birth, healing pain and discomfort, recovering from trauma, readying the body for a marathon, working though overwhelm, fatigue or life’s many daily stressors. Chiropractic might just be the very thing you are looking for to support your body.
