What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the largest natural health care profession in the world. Chiropractic has become the number one choice for health and healing without drugs or surgery.
Chiropractic is a natural approach to the restoration of proper function of your nervous system and body. Our bodies are created to function as self-healing and self-regulating organisms. For example, your body will naturally create its own band-aid (scab) to a wound.
Every function in the human body is directed and coordinated by the nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves). As long as your brain and spinal cord are sending power to every cell, tissue and organ in your body, you should be in good health (known as normal).
If there is interference to the power flowing from your brain and spinal cord to your body, your body will malfunction. This results in sickness and suffering.
Chiropractors correct the interference through specific, gentle, effective adjustments to allow your body to heal itself, as it was designed to.
Who should see a chiropractor?
Everyone! Well, everyone should get their spine checked to ensure that their spine and body are functioning optimally without any stress to their nervous system. Call us today and we’ll answer all your questions and look after your family with gentle hands.

What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery.
Relief is often obtained with acupuncture when traditional medical therapy has failed.
They are ‘atraumatic’, meaning that they do not have a cutting edge like a hypodermic needle, which slices through tissue. Their design allows acupuncture needles to slide smoothly through tissues and makes them unlikely to cause bleeding or damage to underlying structures.
Acupuncture points (also referred to as ‘acupoints’) are places on the skin that have a lower resistance to the passage of electricity than the surrounding skin and are part of a network of points that were mapped centuries ago by the Chinese.
Most are found along ‘meridians’ or ‘channels’ that are believed to be the pathways by which energy or Qi (pronounced ‘Chee’) flows through the body.
When it works as designed, the foot is capable of remarkable things which all help insure not only pain-free health of the foot, but the parts up the chain, including ankles, knees, hips and spine. The foot unwinds to absorb shock as the heel strikes the ground, changes shape to accommodate to varied terrain, then winds back up to be a firm, propulsive lever to advance forward.
States of the Foot
There are two basic states of the foot that should be very familiar: arch up and arch down. The arch down state happens when, after the heel strikes the ground, the foot unwinds inside and the arch does a free fall due to gravity. Most people are able to do this so well they overdo it.
