Our Techniques

Our techniques use gentle touch and light thrusting by hand or small, hand-held instrument called an Integrator. These low-force adjusting methods restore the normal degree of nerve tension and expression to allow for optimal body function and harmony. Our practice members from a few days old to seniors well into their 90s find that these techniques are both gentle and effective.

All our techniques are based upon chiropractic’s founder D.D. Palmer’s statement that “life is the expression of tone.” Imagine that your nervous system has a volume control. If the volume is too loud it causes distortion, with internal organ complaints, musculoskeletal stresses and diminished immune response. Too weak, and your body doesn’t receive critical messages, showing up as sluggishness, reduced performance and poor muscle support. Our techniques look to correct these problems by normalizing the functioning of the nerves, spinal cord and brain. After each adjustment, the body is given time to process the change. Correction continues with your body’s movements and breathing. This process teaches and empowers your body to make more corrections. Healing progresses with repeated visits.

Webster Technique

Drs. Brad and Genevieve are certified in the Webster technique.  Traditionally used during pregnancy, the Webster technique is a specific chiropractic technique that improves the neurological and biomechanical function of the pelvis allowing a greater expression of health for the mother and unborn child. Research shows that women under chiropractic care during pregnancy can experience an increase in comfort during pregnancy, an easier labour and delivery, a reduction in labour and delivery times, and a reduced need for pain medication during labour and delivery.

“Regular adjustments can make pregnancy less stressful and delivery less uncomfortable. Chiropractic care can continue safely until the day of delivery.”

– Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association

 

“Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy removes interference to the mother’s nervous system, enhancing baby development and uterine function. It balances her pelvis, eliminating undue tension to muscles and ligaments and enhancing optimal fetal positioning.”
