Myofascial Release (MFR) treatment works with the connective tissue of the body, called fascia.  Fascia is a densely woven covering that is one continuos structure which surrounds every part of our body creating "pockets" to hold our muscles, bones, organs, spinal cord, and brain. Trauma, inflammatory responses, postural patterns, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that limit movement, while also creating further patterns of restriction when trying to repair the lost function.  MFR involves placing hands on fascial points and following the tissue to areas of restriction.  This may involve very subtly twisting, turning and pulling areas to “follow” the fascial movements. By gently staying with the movement of the fascia, restrictions will resolve, becoming more balanced and mobile.  Read more about MFR...

Atlas Orthogonal (AO) Chiropractic care is a chiropractic technique that focuses of the relationship of the Atlas and Axis, which are the first two vertebral bones of the spine. This area is arguably the most significant and important area of the spinal column; the brain stem actually sits inside of the Atlas, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) flows through here, and this area has higher mobility thus less stability. Dysfunction at this level can affect the whole body in a variety of ways. It has been documented to help treat chronic pain throughout the whole body, nerve dysfunction, fibromyalgia, MS, Migraines, seizures, asthma, and more.  Excitingly, the Atlas Orthogonal Technique has been able to help many people when other chiropractic techniques could not. Read more about AO care...

Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST), is comprised of the membrane layers and fluid that surround, protect, nourish, and cleanse the brain and spinal cord. These membrane layers extend from the bones of the skull to the base of the spine and are interconnected with the entire body. CST works by finding restrictions in the body and then using gentle techniques to help the body increase balanced motion.  The cranial bones and sacrum work together to pump cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) through movements that can be lost in states of restriction resulting in a host of seemingly unrelated symptoms.  Cranial Sacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that releases restrictions throughout all levels of the tissues (superficial to deep) in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction while improving whole-body health and performance.   Read more about CST care...

Yoga poses can strengthen and calm the body while lengthening shortened muscles and connective tissue. The sustained stretch achieved while holding yoga poses, and the more elastic stretching achieved in a jumping and flow series, releases the connective tissue restriction which begins to reform the connective tissues into more balanced connective patterns. Yoga practices can be a wonderful whole body form of healing. Personal restrictive patterns can be further addressed with assigned poses to help continue further healing at home and give patients an active role in their healing.   Read more about Yoga...

Activator Method is a protocol of adjusting that is very gentle. A hand held instrument is used to deliver an adjustment. Many patients prefer the low force adjusting of the activator in comparison to traditional approaches. It is especially well suited for the very young and old. Patients who are sensitive or have a low pain tolerance tend to tolerate the low force of an activator well. Read more about the Activator Method...
