My Blog
Many updates, upgrades, and improvements are coming to Synergy for a brand new year in 2019! Today I'm sharing my new and improved colored lenses set that recently arrived at the office. Some of my patients have already had the opportunity to be treated with them.
Chromotherapy, also known as color therapy, is a centuries old healing modality that uses the individual frequencies of different colors to improve and enhance physical and emotional health in the body.
Here are just a few of their associated properties and benefits:
Red: vitality, security, courage, B vitamins, spine/glandular system
Orange: sociability, confidence, reproductive system, hips
Yellow: cheerfulness, mental clarity, vitamin A, stomach/adrenals, eases depression
Green: unconditional love, forgiveness, heart
Blue: communication, expression, creativity, thyroid gland, throat
Aqua: soothing, calming, loving expressiveness
Indigo: serenity, intuition, wisdom, pituitary gland
Violet: beauty, selflessness, deep sleep, vitamin D
Magenta: relaxation, balancing emotions
Baker-Miller Pink: stress relief, calms aggression, reduces computer glare, appetite suppressant
We area also having our carpet replaced today with brand new carpet for the new year. I am so excited for all of the changes coming to the practice, and I hope you all are too!
*We are out of the office Friday, Dec 21st-Wednesday, Dec 26th. Have a wonderful holiday! *

My kind, funny, musically-talented and holistic-chiropractic-care-loving patient Joe stopped by for his treatment last week here at Synergy Chiropractic. Joe is very much in tune with his body, and we always have a good time together helping his body to function optimally from a structural, biochemical/nutritional, and emotional/mental place.

Joe has high-functioning autism, meaning he is at the milder end of the autism spectrum. Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by challenges with social interaction and communication. Symptoms range from mild to severe. There is a wide range of causes and contributors to autism, including genetic factors, immune system stressors, neurological imbalances, environmental neurotoxins and chemical pollutants, food sensitivities, emotional stressors, and more. 

With holistic chiropractic kinesiology, we can work on all of these factors. With Joe, I treat him as I would any other patient, using muscle testing to prioritize his particular treatment needs. 

We assess the presence of spinal misalignments and correct them via chiropractic manipulation, pelvic blocking, activator methods, and more. This increases functioning of the brain and nervous system and eliminates interference in neurological signaling. The central nervous system controls every organ and function of the body, and since chiropractic greatly affects the nervous system, it can positively affect all bodily functions. We assess and work on any biochemical factors such as infections, toxins, heavy metals, electromagnetic disturbances, food sensitivities, and more, and help to reduce them and their effects in the body. We also do some mind/body work to address any negative effects that the mind and any emotional stressors may have on the body’s performance and functioning. 

At first, Joe was apprehensive before I would perform an adjustment. However, we have had the opportunity to develop a strong confidence bond and Joe knows how much adjustments bring him relief. And his smile, when I’m done, is priceless!

Joe is so in tune with his body, that towards the end of our session together, he goes through his own inventory and flags any particular issues that still need some care. A true team effort between doctor and patient!

I love working with kids and teens, and I truly enjoy working with Joe and his mother! Joe is a wonderful patient, who strives to make changes in his life to increase his health and overall well-being, changes that are synergistic to our treatments here in the office.

Joe is a great example that chiropractic care can greatly help quality of life in any patient with autism, and support them as they strive to increase their ability to live a rich and happy life.

This past weekend, I attended yet another amazing Tim Talks seminar put on by my mentor Dr. Tim Francis in Las Vegas.

This was my third Tim Talks and the material blew me away! I not only got to see my mentor demonstrate the work on all of my colleagues, he also worked on me. I am feeling great, recharged and like brand new, and ready to get back into the office tomorrow with all of this new work!

One of the focuses of the weekend was really getting deep to the root of what is behind bodily weaknesses and spinal misalignments, not only the physical causes, but the biochemical and mental/emotional/spiritual causes as well. 

One of the biggest challenges in practice is figuring out how to get treatments or adjustments to "hold" once we exit the office and are thrown back out into the real world and the stresses of our lives. This work seeks to really get to the root issues to help the treatments hold more permanently. 

I look forward to seeing all of my patients back in the office tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov 7th. We've missed you!




Today I want to talk flower power- using flower essences in holistic chiropractic treatments.
I have used a variety of flower essences in my practice for years now, and there are so many good ones out there! These include Bach remedies, FlorAlive, and my recent fave is Essence Alchemy. I am giving them a little plug today and also giving them their due credit in helping me to explain flower essences and their uses! Check out their website for more info on these amazing remedies.
Flower essences are made by combining different wild flowers with spring water and a little bit of alcohol as a preservative.
Each different flower remedy contains specific healing properties, particularly in relation to negative emotions including fear, anxiety, worry, hopelessness, depression, pain, guilt, and so on. These emotions, when unprocessed and stagnant in our system, create physical problems and pain along with their emotional repercussions.
The flower essences assist in healing and processing these unprocessed emotions in the body. We have talked about and even seen research proving the mind-body connection, but what do we do about that? This is one of the many ways that the mind-body connection can be addressed.
We use manual muscle testing as always to identify the unprocessed emotions and to determine what type of treatment, flower essences included, is applicable.
I would not truly be a holistic practitioner unless I looked at all sides of the health triangle- physical structure, biochemistry, AND mental/emotional health!
