The Mind-Body Connection: Emotions and Health

Numerous studies now prove the connection between mind and body, but what do we do about that discovery? 

Conventional medicine employs counselors, therapists, psychiatrists, medications, and other methods to address emotional traumas. These all absolutely have their time and place, but I am grateful to also have a tool in my office that I myself can use to tamper the effects of negative emotions on the physical body.

One technique I'm grateful to be certified in is Neuro Emotional Technique to help address emotional stressors and their physical impact on the body and current health conditions. With my chiropractic adjustments and other manual work, I am often able to alleviate pain and other symptoms in the body, but if emotional stressors are a major contributor to the symptoms, these symptoms will often return. 

This is why I am so glad to have yet another tool in my arsenal that can aid in alleviating the effects of emotional stress. The super cool thing is that it's a hands on technique. With my tool of Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, we can identify emotions or events that are weakening the body. We then apply various treatment techniques, whether it be an adjustment, a homeopathic or flower essence remedy, reflex points, or many other options. It just depends on what is indicated for that patient at the time!

We're entering another week here at the office, and I am looking forward to get back in to see my patients. I am so blessed to be doing what I love!
