Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches. Also, we help our patients work through emotional issues and physiological imbalances via appropriate nutrition and aspects of our TBM treatment protocols. We often illustrate how electro-magnetic forces may influence our physiology and what may be done to limit negative effects. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience. For the techniques and approaches of our other team members, please refer to their corresponding websites.

Chakra Clearing and Balancing

Chakra is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’ or ‘vortex’. The chakras in the human body are subtle energy centres. Each chakra functions on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Balance is the key to health and well-being. When the chakras are clear they can bring energy to the physical organs and subtle bodies and remove used or stagnant energies from the system.
