ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS 

Doctors of chiropractic are trained, as are medical doctors, in the art of diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions. The goal of chiropractic doctors is to focus on the overall health of the whole person, not only to focus on the symptoms, and strive to offer the best in natural therapies to reach the patient's health goals.

The spine carries nerves that transmit signals throughout the human body, and proper function of these nerves is critical to your overall health. Chiropractic adjustments ensure that the body's nervous system is free to work as nature intended. Adjustments also increase mobility throughout the body which optimizes a person's ability to move freely. 

"Chiropractic services and adjustments are also able to aid in the treatment of mental health issues as well. "Mental health illness can ignite many body related discomforts, ailments, and issues. Mental health issues can manifest as physical problems, which may be your body’s way of coping. Chiropractors are there to offer your body relief, thus helping you to manage your life challenges."1

ABOUT ACUPUNCTURE 

"Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points. 
  
The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others.

The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points; the acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body's internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities, and in the circulation of their energy through the meridians.

The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body's own internal regulating system.

The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body's natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being."
