We treat holistically, meaning that we treat the whole person, not just the health condition or the injury.  We want to know why the patient is not healthy.  Usually a disease process is due to some nutritional deficiency in the patient's body.  Or the patient could have contracted a viral, bacterial, or fungal/yeast infection causing the body to malfunction.  A toxin could be overloading the patient's liver.  Maybe the patient is slow to heal from an injury due to the lack of nutrition specific for muscle or tissue regeneration.  Or it could be the patient just wants to slow down the natural aging process and its resultant hormonal changes.  We can address all of these issues using nutrition.

   Unlike most chiropractic clinics, my practice is based on Chinese medicine.  I use a muscle testing technique called Contact Reflex Analysis {CRA} to analyze the patient and determine exactly what is wrong with the patient nutritionally. 

​Contact Reflex Analysis {CRA}

  Contact Reflex Analysis, simply stated, is an energy connection.  It is a technique that utilizes a muscle response as an indicator and assessment of the energy status of each organ, gland, system, or structure.  This energy assessment is accomplished by testing one or more reflexes, which are similar to acupuncture points and meridians, and monitoring the reaction of the muscle when in contact with these points. The more the body reacts when an energy imbalance is located, the weaker the muscle.  The CRA practitioner typically applies a single, downward push on the wrist of a patient's outstretched arm while also making contact with a specific reflex point on the patient's body.  The gentle, but firm push is like a subtle "question" and the muscle reactivity response is the "answer."

  In a healthy body, energy flows balanced and free to every minute area enabling each cell, organ, and system to live and function. Unfortunately our bodies can experience energy imbalances.  Energy to an organ, gland, system, or structure may be disrupted, or it may be flowing with too high or too low of a frequency necessary for well-being.  Interference in the natural, balanced vibrational frequencies of the body causes one to be predisposed to illness and disease.  Someone in this state of energy imbalance may be affected by the many causes of disease, like stress, poor nutrition, bacteria, etc.  Symptoms appear. At onset these may only cause minimal irritation.  However, if left unchecked the body would continue to deteriorate to a more severe state of disease.  CRA enables the practitioner to detect these energy imbalances at the sub-clinical level, before the patient experiences an advanced level of disease.

​Contact Reflex Analysis can determine the root cause of a health issue; organic, nutritional and/or structural.  Once the cause has been established, CRA can assist in determining the most efficient and effective means of resolving the problem so wellness can be achieved.
