The goal of this portion of my practice is to aid people in recovering from illness. In some cases, people experience the flu, a cold, or another virus and seek relief. At other times patients simply don´t feel good and aren´t sure what´s going on because they don´t seem to be sick. Still other patients have suffered over a longer period and haven´t been able to recover their vitality and function. All of these patients can be assisted.
Illness is a kind of natural experience. Various kinds of "bugs" and toxicities occur in the world in which we live. The key to this portion of my practice is to help patients improve their bodies´ abilities to deal in a healthy way with whatever they encounter. To do so, I work with the patient´s immune system, trying to enhance its ability to meet whatever challenges it encounters.
Done on a highly individualized basis, I offer adjustments to stimulate the body´s systems and to clear any congestion that might be occurring. I use nutritional supplements to provide the material the body needs to do its work more effectively. Acupressure and massage are used to improve the movement of energy throughout the body and to enhance the body´s ability to rid itself of toxicities and imbalances.
