Healing Takes Courage The Art of Healing

Restore Balance with Chiropractic Care

The basic principle of chiropractic is centered on the belief that the body's ability to function at its full potential is directly related to the efficiency of its nervous system. Chiropractic views the spinal column as the lifeline of the nervous system, and the nervous system is the primary means through which life is expressed.

Structural malalignments within the spinal column causes an imbalance in the natural flow of the nervous energy to the body. Therefore, optimal expression of life force is directly related to the structure and function of the spinal column. This being the case, the spinal column deserves the best of care and maintenance. Through the process of analysis, detection, and correction of structural anomalies, referred to as "subluxations", chiropractic care can be very useful in restoring balance to the body.


Stimulate Better Health with Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a term applied to the use of volatile liquids that are distilled from various parts of plants, including bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and stems. Essential oils and human blood share many common properties. Both fight infection, contain hormone-like compounds, and initiate regeneration. Working as the defense mechanism of plants, essential oils possess potent antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. The ability of some essential oils to work as hormones, helps them bring balance to the function  of many of the body's systems. Essential oils also play a role in initiating the regeneration process of the plant, similar to the role blood plays in the human body. Essential oils have chemical structures that are similar to those found in human cells and tissues. This makes essential oils compatible with human proteins and enables them to be readily identified and be accepted by the body.

Aromatherapy Oils

Aromas from essential oils can directly affect everything, from our emotional state to our life span. They can have some very profound physiological and psychological effects on the human economy. When a fragrance is inhaled, the aroma molecules travel up the nose where they are trapped by olfactory (smelling) membranes lining the inside of the nose. Each aroma molecule fits like a little puzzle piece into specific receptor cells lining, a membrane, known as the olfactory epithelium. Each one of these hundreds of millions of nerve cells is replaced every 28 days. When stimulated by aroma molecules, this stimulation of nerve cells trigger electrical impulses to the gustatory center, where the sensation of taste is perceived, and the amygdala, where emotional memories are stored. Other parts of the limbic system are directly connected to these parts of the brain and control a variety of functions, including:

• Heart Rate
• Blood Pressure

• Breathing

• Memory

• Stress Levels

• Hormone Balance

Somiatry, the Healing Touch

The word Somiatry is derived from two Greek words: Soma, meaning body, and iatric, pertaining to medicine or to the work of a Physician or Healer. The ending, ia, is used to terminate the name of a disease, state, or condition. Somiatry is a philosophy of life, health, and healing, based on the recognition that life is an expression of an organized and intelligent universal energy. Health is considered energy expressed with ease. Limitation of the expression of said energy is considered "dis-ease".
