Chiropractic is devoted to treating the nervous and musculoskeletal systems for the purpose of increasing the body's self-healing capabilities. The fundamental purpose of chiropractors is to avoid the use of drugs and surgeries at all costs.
Like a construction crew, the team at Glendale Chiropractic Life Center focuses on structural soundness, keeping the framework maintained by building a sturdy foundation—the spine. Since 1990, the team has fostered spinal health with treatments that prevent disease and alleviate pre-existing ones ranging from sciatica to chronic back pain. Their digital x-rays assess spines’ condition with minimal radiation exposure. Once they’ve determined the root cause, the team can treat disc injuries with spinal adjustments and decompression, soothe aches with full body massages, or alleviate athletic strains.
When health coach Amber looks at a dinner plate, she sees an opportunity. Not an opportunity to cut out beloved foods, but rather to incorporate a healthy balance of foods from every group. At Potent Health by Amber, she draws on her training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where she studied more than a 100 dietary theories, or about as many as it takes to make Thanksgiving dinner for a family of picky eaters. She brings that copious to knowledge to her customized diet plans, which are made to fit each client's unique lifestyle with tasty combinations of veggies, fruits, whole grains, proteins, and fats and oils.
During the eight years she taught anatomy, physiology, and therapeutic massage, Patti Selleck was frustrated. On her website she discloses the reason: "As much as I could affect with massage, I couldn't make permanent changes." So she sought therapies to enhance the results she could provide for clients, traveling a path that led her to enroll in The Rolf Institute in Boulder, Colorado. Rolfing, the commercial name for structural integration, relies on gravity to release tension patterns after sessions in bands of connective tissue called fascia that, when tight, strained, or french braided, can cause joint and muscle pain and imbalances throughout the entire body.
Selleck connected with the practice because it built on her strengths, as the healing process stems from consultations with clients?a specialty of hers since she is a chaplain and a certified lay counselor?and requires a massage therapist's deft touch and detailed understanding of the human body. More than a quarter-century after learning massage in 1985, she revels in work that can have a transformative effect on her patients' lives, enabling them to achieve emotional and spiritual balance through physical alignment.
Dr. Gerald Walman has been practicing eye surgery since 1979 and now clears vision with corrective procedures. Delinquent corneas cower before their reshaping LASIK lasers, which adjust the eye's internal curvature and bring the world, with the exception of fun-house mirrors, into crisp focus. They also brighten cloudy, cataract-afflicted eyes with implant surgeries and lift drooping eyelids with laser rejuvenation treatments.
