Running Naturally!

I'm looking forward to running my second 50K this weekend in my Luna sandals! After years of injury they have helped me run pain free. I cannot be more grateful to run in a sandal that helps me connect to the earth and feel the natural biomechanics of my body at work!

Try An Acupuncture and Chiropractic Combination Treatment!

Experience the benefits of combining chiropractic and acupuncture into one visit.  This treatment option may save you time and money by allowing you to experience the healing benefits of western and eastern medicine in combination.  Chiropractic medicine excels at optimizing spinal health and Chinese medicine excels at supporting a strong constitutional foundation for health and treating the whole body.  Both treatment modalities work to bring the mind, body and spirit into alignment.

Explaining the Unexplainable! Meridian Magic!

A model patient receiving both chiropractic and acupuncture at the same visit. How Awsome!

Well, ok, I am not officially giving an explanation for how acupuncture works, but I would like to offer you my perspective on how it works.

Most folks have a basic knowledge of how electricity courses through their homes.  By simply flipping a switch, light can be turned on and off.  Essentially, the currents are like meridians in the body and needles are analogous to light switches.  

Acupuncture needles influence the electrical or energetic currents in the body.  When energy channels flow freely and in their ideal direction, balance can be restored to the body and illnesses improved.

About Chiropractic and Acupuncture Combo treatments...

Dear Alternative Health Enthusiasts, 

I am happy to announce that I am accepting patients for acupuncture and acupuncture/chiropractic combination treatments!  I am really excited to offer "one stop" treatment options and encourage patients to take advantage of the ability to combine acupuncture and chiropractic into one visit.  In China, many practitioners are trained as acupuncturists as well as "bone setters" and patients commonly receive combination treatments for optimal healing.

Barefoot running

Hi!  I hope you all have had a great summer weekend!  Many of my patients inquire with me about proper running footwear.  I have been a trail runner for a long time (over 15 years) and both my experience as a runner and chiropractor support the theories of minimalist footwear when it comes to running.  Biomechanically, studies show that to absorb the impact of each foot fall properly, we should land on the ball of our feet rather than our heels.  Many running shoes are designed with the heel lifted a few (4-10mm) mm higher than the forefoot.
