Our Therapeutic Techniques

Massage Therapy Suite

Massage Therapy Suite

The options we offer our patients range from pregnancy chiropractic to nutrition response testing. We use highly-effective chiropractic adjusting to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference.

We also use several different types of manual massage to stimulate the immune system and restore coordination to the muscular system. And of course, nutrition response testing is the only approach of its kind for determining what allergens are causing you to be sick.

The approaches we use are all based on our clinical judgment and years of experience. The primary techniques we use include:

Neuromuscular Therapy

This is a form of massage therapy in which the therapist focuses on myofascial trigger points. Trigger points are pockets of inflamed, toxic tissue. Often trigger points are painful to touch, but with repeat sessions, the pain lessens. Patients report wonderful results and say that years of chronic pain was resolved after only a few treatments.

NRT

Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health. Our clinically proven system may be quite different from any other healing practice that you may have experienced. We will begin with a thorough health history and exam. The actual testing procedure is simple and direct, with the body providing all of the information and feedback needed. We use the extraordinary properties of the human cells and tissues to bring about healing and health changes…exactly as Nature intended. The body responds to the procedure reliably and consistently. This feedback is so precise that it opens the door to a safe and lasting recovery, even in cases where everything else has failed.

Palmer Package

The Palmer Package is a variety of techniques taught at the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the birthplace of chiropractic. Techniques include: Gonstead (a gentle hands-on method of evaluating and adjusting the spine), Thompson (utilizes drop pieces in the adjusting table to facilitate the adjustment), Toggle Recoil (a very specific analysis and adjustment system for the atlas vertebra only).

Swedish Massage

Otherwise known as, relaxation massage, this uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to reduce pain, improve flexibility, and stimulate blood flow. The five strokes are: effleurage (gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction, and vibration.
