Doctor of Chiropractic Dana Zappala believes that the body's well-being is based on the summation of its experiences. At L.A Chiro Spa Malibu, her neuro emotional technique dives into the stresses and traumas of the past that may still be lingering, and by working to resolve these, works to bring the body and mind back into balance. But this is just one facet of the healing approach she and her team operates by. Emotions aside, they also work to ease the physical pain and disruption caused by years of poor posture or one carefree day of somersaulting down the sidewalk. They adjust spines and massage muscles to ease back pain, craft custom meal plans to help relieve digestive problems, and draw from Eastern healing techniques such as acupuncture to guide the body's energy flow.
