Chiropractic care focuses on both the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and the effects that imbalances in these two systems can have on general health and well-being. Chiropractic services are used most often to treat neuro-musculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches to name just a few of the many benefits that chiropractic care can offer.
We use gentle, low force adjusting techniques to help restore mobility in the spine and extremities and to restore balance in the nervous system.
Naturopathic medicine recognizes the body's inherent ability to heal itself. Naturopathic physicians work to help their patients remove obstacles that impede this innate healing. Through thoughtful education and coaching, patients feel empowered to take responsibility for their health. Naturopaths believe in treating the individual, taking in to account each persons unique physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors. Naturopathic doctors are trained in clinical nutrition, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, psychology, physical medicine and counseling.
Please refer to Dr. Gail Buquicchio’s profile page to learn more about her approach to naturopathic care.
Bowenwork is a unique system of gentle, light touch that quietly encourages the nervous system to reorganize itself toward greater ease, balance and harmony. In addition, through a systematic series of moves and procedures Bowenwork helps to soften connective tissue and fascia, often unraveling years of chronic pain and tension patterns.
Research proves that massage therapy is an effective treatment for reducing stress, and easing musculoskeletal pain. In addition, massage therapy has profound effects on the nervous system. It has been shown to affect disorders such as anxiety, insomnia, digestive disorders, and headaches (to name just a few of its many benefits).
Maintaining a balanced nervous system is essential for our well-being. During a massage session your body switches from the “fight or flight” (sympathetic nervous system) to the rest, digest, be at ease nervous system (the para-sympathetic nervous system). Regularly devoting time to practices or therapies such as massage, meditation, yoga, and deep breathing restores your parasympathetic nervous system bringing you back to a state of balance and ease. These therapies and practices have lingering effects leaving you with a sense of calm and well-being. In a world addicted to ON, now more than ever investing time in OFF through therapies like massage is vital to your health.
