FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS REGARDING CHIROPRACTIC ACUPUNCTURE
Q: What is Chiropractic Acupuncture?
A: It’s an evolving field of medicine which combines the most modern application of Chiropractic and Acupuncture, thus allowing the best of what both fields of healing have to offer.
Q: What is the premise of healing for both Chiropractic & Acupuncture?
A: Acupuncture is a 5,000 year old Chinese system of natural healing (no drugs and no surgery), which is concerned with restoring proper energy flow to various organs, glands and tissues of the body on the premise that most diseases are the result of malfunction due to disrupted energies.
Explanations: The Chinese definition of health is “all parts of the body functioning normally,” all 400 trillion parts. If there’s is an interruption in the transmission of energy flow or life force (called chi in Chinese), then organ malfunction, disease, pain and suffering are inevitable.
Chiropractic is a healing art that locates and removes a severe form of spine and nerve stress which can cause an imbalance, inflammation, and often swelling in your body and spinal region, thus affecting its ability to function and communicate normally.
Q: Why is the Chiropractic Acupuncture field emerging as as a leading form of natural healthcare?
A: Because energy flow occurs in 2 different areas throughout the body, and this technique addresses them both: (1) there are channels of energy flow, which are located throughout the body, just beneath the skin surface which nourish various organs, glands, and tissues of the body. (premise of Acupuncture healing); (2) in the spinal column where vertebrae may become misaligned, thereby affecting energy flow at vital nerve trunks (premise of Chiropractic healing).
By analyzing both areas accurately for interference in energy flow, proper chiropractic acupuncture treatment is able to help return the body to its natural state of health and balance (homeostasis) to allow it to function at its healthiest level.
Q: How are disturbances of energy flow detected within a patient?
A: By many methods, including certain signs, symptoms, pain spots, organ reflex points, and by pulse or instrumental findings.
Q: Assuming I am going to take Chiropractic Acupuncture treatments, how are the performed?
A: It’s a very gentle, modern, and integrative approach; completely hands on and needle-less, along with being extremely effective and comfortable for the patient as well. Due to the combination of acupressure, it allows for treatment of all ages and can also help very difficult, chronic/complicated cases. No twisting and turning is necessary and due to the extremely gentle touch and safety of the treatment, almost anyone can benefit.
Q: What conditions can be helped with Chiropractic Acupuncture?
A: When combining the 2 healing modalities, textbooks list over 2,000 conditions that have been helped through Chiropractic & Acupuncture! Although being a results-oriented based practitioner, results are not based upon treating a certain condition, yet on properly examining and determining the loss of function and/or imbalanced energy flow, then returning back to normal through proper application of the healing techniques. Looking forward to seeing what gets better for you!

Q: Are there other causes of disease besides those associated with the interference of the transmission of energy flow?
A: Yes, of course, physcosomatic states, hereditary factors, poisons, adverse environmental conditions, injury, germs, malnutrition, etc.., are all disease producing.
Q: Are there any other significant healing factors other than Chiropractic & Acupuncture?
A: Yes, there are 5 laws to obey for those who desire health and longevity. 1). Proper nutrition; 2). Adequate rest; 3) Moderate exercise; 4) A positive mental attitude; 5) Proper nerve supply
Among the many other things contributing to your health – the quality of the air; food and water you take in; how you handle emotional stress; your inherited weakness and strengths; your use of drugs; exercise; and relaxation all play a role in overall health.
Either way, a balanced body and energy flow with a healthy spine is absolutely essential. In some people it is a major factor and can make a difference between a life of health, strength and vitality or a life of disease, weakness and disability.
