Massage Therapy in Conjunction with Chiropractic Care

We get the question all the time: Should I go to the massage therapist, or should I go to the chiropractor?  The short answer is: Both!

What are the top advantages to going to a massage therapist?

1. Going to the massage therapist before getting adjusted

There are many health benefits to massage therapy in general, and we don’t like to think of massage therapists as competition to the chiropractic field of medicine, instead, it is just as much of a complement to our methodology.  Why? Getting a deep tissue massage, or a swedish massage (or other types) can serve to relax the body and the muscles surrounding your skeleton structure.  This relaxation can help to make the adjustment more effective.

2. Getting a massage after getting adjusted

The “memory” of your muscles is often what prevents chiropractic adjustments from having long-term benefits.  The reason this problem exists is that muscles tend to have residual tension and this tension can often hold spinal segments out of place.  When the chiropractor uses manipulation to put the spine back into alignment, the tension that remains in the muscles can immediately, or almost immediately pull the spine back out of place.  Receiving a massage immediately after an adjustment can help to keep the muscles loose and give your adjustment more lasting power.   For more information on this subject visit:


What Kinds of People Can Chiropractors Help? Contractors..Moms, and More!

Chiropractic Care Has Long Been a Solution for Working People

One individual recently stated that after working for 20 years as a kitchen remodeling contractor, he had developed a number of maladies that he assumed were going to be there forever.  He had chronic hip pain, and neck pain, and was unable to do tasks that had come easily before.  After the first visit to the chiropractor, the problems were alleviated  significantly, and after 2 months he had virtually no pain! 
Another top bathroom remodeling professional was completely bed ridden after throwing his back out lifting a shower unit.  When his wife brought him in to the chiropractor she said that she just couldn’t stand seeing him like that anymore and was hoping the chiropractor could help.  They had tried a wide variety of treatments including electrical stimulation, nutritional response therapy, and meditation, but nothing was working.  Even painkillers were beginning to lose their effect and have negative consequences.  Once again, the first adjustment was painful but after a day, he noticed that the pain had subsided, and after only one month of bi-weekly visits, the contractor was completely free of pain – without surgery, or powerful painkillers.

The values of a wellness clinic should be to incorporate natural health solutions that work with your body instead of despite it. Chiropractic care, massage therapy, good nutrition and acupuncture all excellent examples of this wellness philosophy.

The state of health that you are currently experiencing is the sum total of all the choices that you have made in your life. “Health” is the state of physiology that your cells have decided is the very best fit for your environment, both internal and external, that you have created. If you have put yourself in a state of chronic stress (stressors can be physical, chemical or emotional) your posture, blood pressure, heart rate, pain levels, immune system, etc. will reflect those choices.

Recently, many exciting discoveries have been made as to how chiropractic care stimulates and modulates the afferent nervous system, validating what chiropractors have known anecdotally for over 100 years. This also opens the door for even more work to truly discover the exact mechanism of influence we have on the peripheral and spinal nervous system!

How Do We Do the Nutrition Response Testing Analysis?

If I were to hook you up to an electrocardiograph machine and take a reading, that would make perfect sense to you, right?

What is actually happening during this procedure? Electrical energy from the heart is running over the wires. This electrical energy makes the electrocardiograph record the energy pattern in the form of a graph or chart. I could then study this graph and tell you what it all means.

Here is what we do with Nutrition Response Testing. Instead of connecting electrodes to the reflex areas being tested, the Nutrition Response Testing practitioner contacts these areas with their own hand. With the other hand, he/she will test the muscle of your extended arm. If the reflex being contacted is “active” the nervous system will respond by reducing energy to the extended arm, and the arm will weaken and drop. This drop signifies underlying stress or dysfunction, which can be affecting you health.

Why is the Person Who Referred You Feeling Better?

Because we did a Nutrition Response Testing analysis for him/her, we found the “active” reflexes and then made specific nutritional recommendations to help the body return to an improved state of health. Most importantly, the person is following through on our recommendations.

We are prepared to do the exact same thing for you now. Isn’t that exciting? However, the best is yet to come.
The “Personalized Health Improvement Program”

Let’s say the liver or kidney reflexes are active. Then what?

Our next step is to test specific, time-tested and proven, highest-possible quality nutritional formulas against those weak areas to find which ones bring the reflexes back to strength.

Our decades of clinical experience tell us that when we have found the correct nutritional supplements, as indicated by this procedure, and have worked out a highly personalized nutritional supplement schedule, we have identified the most important first step in correcting the underlying deficiency or imbalance that caused the reflex to be active in the first place. By following the program as precisely as possible, you are well on your way to restoring normal function and improving you health.

It’s that simple!

In medicine, the medical doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptom, or to surgically remove the “offending” organ or part.

In Nutrition Response Testing we use “DESIGNED CLINICAL NUTRITION” to correct the cause of the problem, so that the body can regain the ability to correct itself.

What is Designed Clinical Nutrition?
“Designed Clinical Nutrition” is exactly that: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully).
It is concentrated, whole food in a tablet, capsule, or powder prepared using a unique manufacturing process that preserves all of the active enzymes and vital components that make it work as Nature intended. These real food supplements have been designed to match the needs of the body, as determined by the positive response shown when tested against the active Nutrition Response Testing reflexes that were found on your individual Nutrition Response Testing analysis. These are nutrients you are simply not getting, or not assimilating, in your current diet.
