Chiropractic is the medical science whose mission is the reestablishment of your good health by restoring and maintaining your properly functioning nervous system, without drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause the malfunction of tissues and organs throughout your entire body. The Chiropractic adjustment has been proven to increase motion, increase circulation, reduce swelling and pain, and remove nerve irritation. Once this nerve irritation is removed, your body is able to do what it is designed to do - heal itself.
Chiropractors help in restoring your nervous system function. Dr. Teresa also focuses on your muscles, helping to reduce your pain levels, and increase your muscular function. With a long history as a Massage Therapist, she understands the need for a whole body approach to helping relieve your pain, and improving your quality of life.
Modern physics has told us that everything we've always assumed to be solid - our bodies, the ground, and the chairs we sit in - is actually an intricate web of particles made of energy. Every time physicists try to isolate the most basic particle, all they find is smaller and smaller particles made of energy packets called quanta. All matter is energy.
Reiki is an ancient healing modality that teaches that energy is already inherent within a person to help with healing. Reiki helps balance the energy systems of a person, which can help with physical, mental, and emotional problems. A related discipline, acupuncture, is based on a very similar model of healing, which uses a theory of energy meridians. When a person's energy is muddled or imbalanced it can cause imbalances in their outward life. By becoming a Reiki practitioner you will learn how to balance your energy, and other peoples', creating a healthy balanced environment for growth and healing. Dr Teresa Cummings is a Reiki Master.
