What is Chiropractic?
Most people associate chiropractic with treatment of back and neck pain, headaches, and various mechanical and postural issues of the spine. A Holistic Chiropractor can also offer much more. Dr. Kathryn can help with low energy and decrease aging in the spine by increasing range of motion and mobility. This will aid in balance and coordination and decrease inflammation of the joints and soft tissues. Other benefits include enhanced energy, performance and an increased sense of well- being and relaxation.
Chiropractic, founded by D. D. Palmer in the late 1800’s, is a health care discipline based on the creative innate and intelligent power of the body. It can heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The nervous system is the master controller of all living cells, tissues and organs of the body. The spinal column encases and protects the nervous system, specifically the spinal chord and the nerve roots. When there are biomechanical and structural problems in the spinal column, the result is an irritation of the spinal nerves and the surrounding soft tissue of the nervous system. This is referred to as a Sublaxation.
In a sublaxation of the spine, the irritation of the nerve roots leads to noxious inflammatory bio-chemicals released from the tissue injury. As a result, the nervous system is negatively interfered in the functioning of the cells, tissues and the organs which are supplied by the affected nerve(s).
The Chiropractic Adjustment
When a chiropractic adjustment of the spine is administered to correct these spinal misalignments or sublaxations, the recuperative creative powers of the body are restored. Healing goes to the affected nerves, and again, to the associated cells, tissues and organs. This explains how and why, in so many cases, patients report not only relief from the pain and symptoms from the sublaxation, but also improvements from various and seemingly non-spinal health conditions.
A holistic chiropractor is focused on finding and treating the Primary Cause of a patients ailments and not just treating the symptoms. In Dr. Kathryn’s office, multiple adjusting techniques may be used. Whether one is familiar to chiropractic or new, she strives to accommodate the patients comfort level to the process.
Applied Kinesiology, A.K, is an art of muscle testing as a means of tuning in to the functions of your body’s nervous system. In a way, it is like a language of the body that facilitates insights into the underlying causes and solutions to many functional illness, structural, chemical, and mental/emotional imbalances before they can manifest as dis-eases of the body.
Testing the strength of various muscles gives feedback about the status of the specific nerve roots that also shares the same innervations or nerve supply to specific organs and glands. When imbalances are found, the holistic chiropractor then can evaluate and treat the cause by administering joint mobilization/ manipulations, myofascial techniques, cranial-sacral techniques, nutrition, neuro-vascular and neuro-lymphatic points and stress management counseling. A.K. is a valuable asset in treating the Whole body and the Whole person!
Cranial Sacral Technique
Cranial Sacral technique is a very gentle procedure that unwinds the physical stored energetic patterns of the cranium. As the fluid of the cerebrospinal travels from the sacrum in and around the head it nourishes the central nervous system. The proper flow of the cerebrospinal fluid is important to vital biological and physiological functions of the body. This relaxing and calming technique creates a powerful experience of the healing power of energy work.

This therapy is designed to restore the body’s energy and balance and assist the natural detoxification process. The EB 305 has been proven in clinical trials to balance and restore the body’s electromagnetic energy. How it works is by using a direct current similar to that of the human body to create an ionic field. The patient places their feet in the bioenergetics water to receive the flow of ions which increases cellular function. Studies have shown that more cellular ATP is produced during the treatments. This enhances the cells to work and detoxify at a higher rate and to change and balance the body’s PH. Many conditions may benefit, including arthritis, chronic pain, joint pain & swelling, inflammation, headaches and neuralgia.
