Dr. Mark Severance utilizes a low force adjusting technique. The Chiropractic Adjusting Tool (CAT) is a small, hand-held instrument which delivers a gentle percussive force to any joint in the body with the goal of restoring motion. The CAT low force adjusting technique is an alternative to the traditional manual form of spinal manupulation associated with “cracking” or “popping” of joints. It is safe for all ages: newborns to senior citizens.
Most chiropractic adjustments are made to the vertebra of the spine not only to restore motion but to relieve pressure on the nerve roots. Your nervous system controls, coordinates, and regulates ALL functions of your body. Stress on the nerves can cause stress in your organs. Stre in your otgans can cause dysfunction. Dysfunction = disease. Diseases can very well be originating from stress in the nerves.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest practices of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Acupuncture is founded on the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy, or qi, in the body.Acupuncture stimulates points on or under the skin called acupuncture points, thus stimulation this qi. The qi then travels through channers called meridians and restores proper energy.
Many people are apprehenive about having needles stuck in them. The sterile acupuncture needle are as thin as your hair. Insertion of a needle into an acupuncture point is quick and painless. You may feel a tiny sting or nip akin to a mosquito bite. Once the needles are in place, you rest quietly for 20 minutes. At the end of the trearment, the needles are removed and discarded.
When your body needs to make spare parts: build muscle, mend a fracture, repaira a wound, heal from an illness, create proper brain chemistry, hormones, anti-inflammatories, where do those pare parts ome from? You are literally what you eat! Your thyroid needs iodine or it cannot function. Your bones need calcium and trace minerals or they will not be strong. The eyes need vitamin A for vision. Your muscles will ache without enough magnesium. Healthy skin requires vitamins A, D, and E.
