What is Intuitive Chiropractic and what are the Chakras?
What is Intuitive Chiropractic?
Intuitive chiropractic is my unique approach that incorporates intuitive chiropractic and energy medicine. I do this by allowing Spirit to direct my hands to any part of the body and spine where energy is blocked and not moving. Through intent and gentle touch, the blocked energy releases and the body returns to a balanced state. Any subluxations in bones of your body also release during the treatment. Your body is more then just a spine. Since the energy centers (chakras) run up and down the spine, chiropractic and energy medicine really go hand and hand. They are both very effective on their own. However, I have found that using them together yields much more significant results.
Everything that is alive pulsates with energy. This energy contains information. Your physical body is surrounded by an energy field that extends arms length around your body.
Your energy is individual to you and contains emotional energy created by your personal experiences-both positive and negative. This emotional energy is in your biology and creates an energy that reflects these emotions. (Did you ever get a certain feeling when you first meet someone? You are picking up on their energy).
Just as radio stations have to “tune in” to a certain energy frequency, each organ in your body has to do the same. When you are healthy, you are “in tune”, energy flows freely and you are dis-ease free. When an area of the body is not “in tune”, the energy is not flowing freely and is stuck. Stuck energy leads to the body not functioning at its optimal level which in turn leads to dis-ease and dys-function.
This way of reading the energy field is referred to as energy medicine and is one of the most ancient medical practices.
Integrating chiropractic and energy medicine offers the most natural solution for treating the body. Although both are very effective on their own, it is my belief that through combining the two, you can reach a state of well being that cannot be attained through chiropractic treatment alone. My approach consists of gentle touch along the spine and extremities which releases the stagnant energy that causes subluxations. I also read and clear the energy field in and around your body. I offer exercises and techniques for you to maintain this healthy state. The body is now being addressed on all PEMS levels (physical, emotional/mental, spiritual). All physical conditions or dis-ease begin in the energy field long before they manifest in your body. This unique approach is painless and treats the mind, body and spirit as a whole.
You are an active participant in your health and well being. With your active participation, you can achieve total balance of the mind, body and spirit.
Is Intuitive Chiropractic Safe for Children?
Most parents that I have talked to are not happy giving their children medication for colds/sore throats/ear infections, etc... let alone surgery for other dis-eases. There is a different way. Clearing the spine and energy field of interference typically works very quickly in children. They are excited, trust and follow directions allowing the interference to leave their body, restoring health. It is safe, effective, gentle and completely natural.
What is the Chakra System?
Chakras are centers of energy, sacred discs which originate from points on our body. They are thought to have been discovered thousands of years ago. Each chakra brings energy to certain parts of the body as well as holds the energy of different emotions and thoughts. There is a transfer of energy between each chakra. When they are all open and balanced, you feel at your best. However, when you (or your bodyfield) close a chakra, the energy becomes stagnant or blocked and cannot bring in fresh new energy and release the toxic energies (thoughts, emotions and beliefs that no longer serve your highest good).
There are seven major chakras. They are listed below along with some of the symptoms you could be experiencing if they’re out of balance.
First Chakra (Root)
The base chakra is located at the tailbone and brings energy to the low back, bones, large intestine, rectum and legs. It is related to issues of ability to stand up for oneself, being grounded/roots (familial)/appropriate boundaries and all experiences (negative or positive) in your childhood. Imbalance in this chakra occurs in chronic conditions, which are conditions that have developed slowly over weeks and months, and last for a long time. Symptoms of imbalance include feeling emotionally imbalanced, immune system dysfunction, low back pain, sciatica, hip pain, any issues in the legs (hips/knees/feet), lower intestine as well as rectum.
Second Chakra (Sacral)
The sacral chakra is located at the base of the spine. It brings energy to the sexual organs, intestines, lower vertebrate, pelvis, appendix, bladder and hips. It is related to emotions, sexuality, desire, creativity, power and relationships. Symptoms of imbalance include chronic lower back and/or pelvic pain, sciatica, ob/gyn problems, sexual potency, urinary problems as well as some gastric conditions including irritable bowel syndrome.
Third Chakra (Solar Plexus)
The solar plexus chakra is located just below the sternum (breast-bone). It brings energy to the abdomen, stomach, upper intestines, liver, gall bladder, kidney, pancreas adrenal glands, spleen and thoracic (middle) spine. It is associated with trust, fear and intimidation, self-esteem/respect, care of oneself and others, responsibility for making decisions, sensitivity to criticism and personal honor. When it is out of balance it can cause tightening of the erector spine muscles-which are found just next to the spine on both sides, arthritis, ulcers, colon/intestinal problems, pancreatitis/diabetes, indigestion, anorexia/bulimia, liver dysfunction and adrenal dysfunction.
Fourth Chakra (Heart)
The heart chakra is located between the center of the breast-bone and the middle of the thoracic spine (mid-back). It brings energy to the heart and circulatory system, lungs, shoulders, arms, ribs, breasts, diaphragm and thymus gland. It is associated with love and hatred, resentment and bitterness, grief and anger, self-centeredness, loneliness and commitment, forgiveness and compassion, hope and trust. Symptoms of imbalance are congestive heart failure, heart attack, mitral valve prolapse, asthma/allergies, lung cancer, breast cancer, upper back and shoulder/arm/wrist issues.
Fifth Chakra (Throat)
The fifth chakra is the throat chakra. It brings energy to the throat, thyroid, parathyroid, trachea, cervical spine (neck), mouth, teeth and gums, esophagus, hypothalamus. It is associated with choice and strength of will, personal expression and how you 'talk' to yourself and others, following one's dreams, using personal power to create, addiction as well as judgement and criticism. Symptoms of imbalance are raspy or chronic sore throat, mouth ulcers, gum problems, tmj problems, scoliosis, laryngitis and thyroid problems.
Sixth Chakra (The Third Eye)
This chakra is located around the upper part of the eyes. It is said to represent the third eye in extra-sensory perception and clairvoyance. It brings energy to the brain, nervous system, eyes, ears, nose, pineal gland and pituitary gland. It is associated with self-evaluation, truth, intellectual abilities, open mindedness, openness to others and emotional intelligence. Symptoms of imbalance are brain tumor/hemorrhage/stroke, neurological imbalance, full spinal difficulties, learning disabilities, seizures, migraine, headaches, sinusitis, vertigo, dizziness, and light-headedness.
Seventh Chakra (Crown)
The crown chakra is located at the top of the head. It is said to be a link between the body and the spiritual plane, and is used extensively in yoga and meditation. It brings energy to the muscular system, skeletal system and skin. It is associated with the ability to trust life, values and courage, selflessness, ability to see the big picture, faith, inspiration and spirituality. Symptoms of imbalance are energetic disorders, depression, chronic exhaustion (not linked to another disorder) and extreme sensitivities to light and sound.
What is a subluxation?
A subluxation means a slight misalignment of the vertebrae and/or bones of the body. These disturbances may irritate nerve roots and the blood vessels which branch off from the spinal cord between each of the vertebrae. This irritation may cause pain in the muscle, lymphatic and organ tissue, as well as neurologic imbalance in the normal body processes. Since the spine is the life force of the body, a subluxation will cause the flow of energy to stagnant. This may affect the body's ability to heal itself.
What can cause a subluxation?
A fall, injury, sudden jar, trauma (emotional or physical), or sometimes an inherited spinal weakness can displace a vertebra or any bone in the body. Other causes include poor posture, occupational hazards, incorrect lifting practices, lack of rest and exercise, and stress. Any time there is a subluxation in the body, life force is slowed down and you cannot be at your best on any level.
How is a subluxation corrected?
I use a non-force, gentle technique. Many patients ask if there is any pain or 'cracking' during a treatment The answer is no. Through my unique approach of gentle touch along the spine and extremities, I release the stagnant energy causing the subluxation. I also clear the energy field in and around your body. Through clearing the body, spine and energy field of interference, the body is positioned to function optimally. This facilitates better health and an overall sense of well being!
