Why Get Balanced?
Contrary to what statistics may imply, being healthy is your body’s normal state.
So why do I have lower back pain? Why do I get headaches so frequently? Why do I feel fatigued all the time?
Your nervous system is the ringleader to the healthy workings of your body and it can be overloaded by a condition as simple as stress or one particular food in your diet. As the primary communicator for the body and it’s functions, we tap into your nervous system and get clues as to what the body needs to self correct. Using Applied Kinesiology, we can identify where the system is off, be it chemical (elimination of offensive substances, deficiencies of Vitamins, minerals, hormones, neurotransmitters) or structural imbalances that are interfering with normal communication of the system, or stress (emotional, physical, etc..).
Since your spinal column is the root of your nervous system, then joint restrictions or fixations among the moving bones of the vertebral column can be the source of your pain. Treatments are then performed as indicated with adjustments of the spine, extremities, cranium, TMJ, nutritional recommendations, lifestyle modifications, emotional corrections, and more.
Proper Balanced care, using this complete arsenal of tools, we assist your body to alleviate pain and support your natural state of well being.
