At Live Well Holistic Health, we are proponents of using holistic remedies to manage pain. As believers in alternative methodologies that are non-invasive and do not require surgery, we are able to provide deep relief for our clients suffering from chronic or sudden injuries.
Using gentle chiropractic techniques, we are able to release blockages due to misalignment in the spine or other areas where mobility is impaired. By re-aligning the back, we are able to treating a multitude of other disorders including the muscular-skeletal structure and those of the nervous system.A non-invasive Manual therapy that aligns body to create more space internally relieves pressure on vertebrae and other bones, and chiropractic frees the organs for better function, allowing for greater flow of oxygen and blood to the brain and entire body. Highly effective for lower back and neck pain, this treatment can alleviate and eliminate discomfort.
Through massage, muscles are coaxed to release, thus relieving pressure that they may be placing on bones and organs. Massage is a powerful pain manager, allowing for a better quality of life by assisting sleep patterns, improving circulation to nourish cells and improve internal waste removal, loosen knots, decompress nerves such as in carpel tunnel and sciatica, provide greater physical flexibility, and enhance vitality.
The ancient art of acupuncture has been used in Asia for centuries for a myriad of conditions. At Live Well Holistic Health, we have witnessed the removal of pain through the use of this holistic system, whether it is caused by osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, injuries, and more. Acupuncture helps to release endorphins and serotonin to alleviate pain while releasing the flow of “chi” or energy that is necessary for health. When chi is blocked due, pain and other complications can ensue due to internal imbalance. As internal energy increases, symptoms are relieved and organ and cognitive function increases. A safe healing protocol, acupuncture is excellent for relieving chronic pain, including migraine headaches.
