Our Techniques & Therapies

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Neuro Cranial Integration

Neuro Cranial Integration: NCi is a specific technique that aligns the cranial bones, brain and nervous system from the inside out and from the top down. The re-alignment takes tension off the nervous system, releases cranial, fascial and muscle tissue fixations, and returns proper cerebrospinal fluid flow throughout the spine and entire body. read more»
