We provide healthy routines and care to relieve your everyday aches and pains. We can lead you to a healthy path and away from unhealthy habits that you may not be aware of. The goal of chiropractic is to optimize health with a non-invasive approach that does not use drugs or surgery. Chiropractic’s primary avenue of care is manipulation of the spine and the framework of the body.
Where conventional or “allopathic” medicine focuses on curing illness through surgery and pharmaceuticals, the goal of chiropractic is to optimize health with a non-invasive approach that does not use drugs or surgery. Chiropractic’s primary avenue of care is manipulation of the spine and the framework of the body.
The spine is an important structure that houses and provides protection for the spinal cord, while providing mobility for the upper body. This dual requirement of strength and flexibility makes the spine a very complex structure, with multiple joints at each spinal segment (the vertebrae) forming the spinal column.
Holistic chiropractic therapy is a form of treatment that uses the body’s natural ability to discover HOMEOSTASIS (state of balance). This is done by focusing on the spinal cord, via the NERVOUS SYSTEM. It control’s the healthy function of every cell, tissues, organ, and system of the body. It is documented that misalignment of the spinal cord is often the cause of headaches, neck and lower back pain, as well as many other conditions.
Adjustments aren’t just for back and neck injuries like whiplash from a car accident, or some other sports-related injury. We can treat sciatica nerve pain, spinal stenosis, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, hip pain, and other types of joint pain.

Does your daily grind add stress to your body? Whether you’re a weekend warrior, a busy mother, or stressed at work. Stress relief is the key to finding the balance of a healthy lifestyle. Even a single massage session can relax your muscles and support the production of endorphins – both of which help reduce daily stress. And who wouldn’t want to reduce the stress in their life? A massage program design around making you feel relaxed and stress-free would be a small investment in your health. Our highly trained massage therapists specialize in mutable types of massage techniques based on your needs.
Acupuncture is one of the most commonly used medical procedures in the world. As a complex branch of ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) originating in China more than 5,000 years ago, acupuncture became better known. The term acupuncture describes stimulation of anatomical points on the body with thin, disposable, stainless steel needles that are manipulated by the hands of the practitioner or by electrical stimulation. Traditional Chinese Medicine is an entire medical system documented in China by the 3rd century B.C. TCM is based on a concept of vital energy, or qi, that is believed to flow throughout the body.
