With this philosophy in mind, Dr. Alan Canon plies his 18 years of experience to trigger the body's homeostatic mechanism that heals it from injury and illnesses. His go-to technique for rebalancing the body is craniosacral therapy, which picks up on the body's natural rhythms and helps empty out disharmonious trauma and backpacks filled with broken ukeleles.
