Chiropractic Care 

Chiropractic Care is hands-on spinal manipulation. Using alternative holistic approaches to properly align the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. Manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress. Chiropractic treatment is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons.  

Nutritional Consultations   

Proper nutrition plays a vital role in leading a healthy lifestyle. A proper diet can help you maintain a healthy weight and immune system and help reduce your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Poor nutrition is directly linked to a wide range of health problems.  A nutrition consultation includes a one-on-one food journal and personalized diet plans. Customized supplement regimens using physician- grade supplementation developed for each patient. Support is given to help each patient with his/her own personal fitness goals. 

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is an excellent way to improve your physical and mental well-being. It involves manipulating muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues in your body to relieve tension, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and improve circulation. With many types of massages available, from gentle Swedish massage to intense deep tissue massage, there’s something for everyone. Whether you’re an athlete looking to improve your performance or someone in need of some relaxation, a massage can provide numerous benefits. Don’t hesitate to try it out and experience the positive effects for yourself.

Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna

Infrared saunas use infrared waves to heat the chamber, these waves allow the heat to penetrate the body to increase your core temperature unlike traditional saunas which only heat the surface level of the skin. This increase of the body’s cores temperature produces a deeper more therapeutic sweat, increasing the health benefits such as better sleep, relaxation, detoxification, weight loss, relief from sore muscles and joint pain, clear and tighter skin as well as improved circulation.

Chromotherapy 

Chromotherapy is a science that uses colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. Each color has specific frequencies of vibration, which are related to different physical symptoms. Our bodies need the sun’s light to live, and that light can be broken down into a seven-color spectrum. Imbalance of any of those colors can manifest itself in physical and mental symptoms. Color therapy works on various energy points to help balance your body via the full spectrum of visible light. Each color addresses a distinct need. Color and light have been used by healers for thousands of years. Chromotherapy possibly has its roots in Indian medicine (Ayurveda), ancient Egyptian culture, and traditional Chinese healing. Alternative medicine practitioners who use chromotherapy often relate the seven colors of the color spectrum to specific body areas.

Color therapy has been used for centuries around the world and is still one of the most popular forms of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies available. Chromotherapy, which is also known as color therapy, is based on the idea that different colors can have healing properties and can be used to treat various conditions.

Here is an overview of the colors used in chromotherapy and their associated benefits:

– Red: Believed to increase the pulse, raise blood pressure and increase the rate of breathing. Red is used to support circulatory and nervous functions.
– Strong Pink: Acts as a cleanser, strengthening veins and arteries.

– Orange: A mixture of red and yellow, orange activates and eliminates localized fat. It also assists with asthma and bronchitis.
