Chiropractic Adjustments:

My philosophy of adjusting is to look at the whole body, not just the spine. Because of this, I like to take time with each patient. In the 15 minute period, I will adjust the spine and do my best to balance the rest of the body. This may include structural, emotional, electrical and/or nutritional problems.


TBM stands for Total Body Modification. It deals with the causes, not symptoms, of problems and sets the body in motion to heal itself. This technique finds the organ or area of the body that is stressed and helps to correct the problem by restoring balance to the nervous system. TBM works with the nervous system to re-establish communication pathways to the organs and systems of the body.

In essence, TBM is a technique for helping the body's bio-computer adjust back to healthy functioning by focusing on the causes versus the symptoms to assist the body to heal itself.

ESM stands for Environmental Stress Management and is a home health care system that allows you to take charge of your own health. This is your new first aid kit!

ESM comes from TBM (Total Body Modification) and is a technique taught to the general public. You learn how the body works as a unit and what you can do to take control of the environment in your daily life. You will learn how to do simple muscle testing and how to test what foods or supplements are healthy for you and your family. You will also learn specific sequences in order to balance out the energy going to a specific organ or body function.

Massage Therapist

Category: Health / Fitness
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.

It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.

Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
