Frequently Asked Questions
Chiropractic is a healing modality which focuses on enhancing nervous system function throughout the entire body. This is primarily achieved through safe and gentle chiropractic adjustments to the spine or extremities, which help to allow optimal connection between your brain and body. These adjustments include applying a precise force to a specific joint, and can be performed in a variety of ways suitable to individual needs and preference.
Applied Kinesiology (A.K.) is a technique that utilizes the art of muscle testing, which can be used to assess and evaluate current function of your body (structural, chemical, and emotional). The use of muscle testing can give an insight into how your body is compensating for and adapting to patterns of stress (i.e. organ/glandular dysfunction, nutritional imbalances, emotional instability) and can help identify ways to best improve the overall health and function of your body.
No. Kinesiology is the scientific study of anatomy and mechanics with respect to human movement.

Similar parts of the brain are activated when processing physical and emotional pain. Unresolved emotional tension can change the physical expression of the body (i.e. muscle tension, joint restriction, etc.). Stressful events from our past that have not been fully processed or integrated can lead to the expression of chronic pain, tension, and dysfunction anywhere in the body. This can change the way you operate in the present (repetitive thoughts, inability to make decisions) as well as alter your projection of the future (limiting beliefs, fear).
No. All payment is to be collected directly from the patient (we accept cash, checks, and credit cards). If your insurance plan includes ‘Out of Network Chiropractic Care’, we will gladly create a Superbill with the necessary CPT codes for you to submit directly to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
YES! Regardless of age, our body is constantly under a state of stress. It can be helpful to routinely decompress from the stressors of daily life, while experiencing improved movement and function throughout your body and mind. Of course, we take a more gentle approach to care for those who are ‘younger’ and ‘wiser’! 😉
The absence of pain does not necessarily equate to optimal health and function. Our body is magnificent at adapting to a myriad of stressors, but over an extended period of time can exhaust all of its backup resources. Being proactive with your health will also help you in other areas of life (i.e. relationships, work, finances, hobbies) because YOU are the common denominator with them all. If you are thinking clearly, moving freely, and loving openly, you will continue to upgrade your life (mind, body, spirit) regardless of where you are now.
Everything matters! What you eat, drink, think, breathe, do, listen to, express, etc. has an impact on your health and can change the quality of your life. These daily habits can significantly enhance the care that you receive, as you decrease the amount of stress (physical, chemical, emotional) and increase the amount of life-enhancing practices such as proper hydration, mindful intention, movement, and breath. Together we will create the best supportive practice for you to integrate on a daily basis!
