It has been said that you are only as old as your spine feels. If you have ever had back or neck pain you know how true that statement is. At Fallon Family Chiropractic, Dr. Harmon will diagnose and treat the structural issues surrounding your back or neck. We divide our chiropractic adjustments into 2 different treatments. The first and most basic is a simple adjustment of one of the areas of your spine. The second mode of treatment will require an adjustment of more than one area of the spine. Dr. Harmon provides gentle manual adjustments and uses several different styles and techniques to achieve spinal correction. The patient also has the option of having the doctor use adjusting tools such as an Impulse Gun, or Activator to accomplish the same results.
At Fallon Family Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, creating injuries over time. In each case, a targeted corrective plan includes stretching and strengthening exercises from our experienced chiropractor that will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Fallon chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
The word REIKI means, "Universal Life Force Energy.
This energy is available to all people and animals. Reiki has been practiced as a laying on of hands/touch healing system since early civilization. Reiki, as we know and practice it today, was discovered and developed in the mid-1800's with the life long study of Mikao Usui. The act of laying hands on the human or animal body to comfort and relieve pain is as old as instinct. For instance, when experiencing pain, the first thing that most people will do is to put their hands on the painful area.
Human touch conveys warmth, serenity, caring, love, and healing.
The living body radiates warmth and energy. This energy is the Life Force itself, and is known by many names in many different cultures (Mana, Chi, Ki, Orenda, Prana, Ruach, etc.).
Reiki, as used by the Reiki Practitioner, works to enhance and conserve Chi by directing the energy movement within the body.
Chi is an electrical type of energy that creates the body, and determines the state of health. Chi is also the essential Life Force of the Earth, the Planets, the Stars, and the Heavens, and these sources of energy affect the human and animal body on a daily basis.
In the Life Force energy of Reiki, the person who is attuned as a Reiki Healer, had his or her body's energy channels (Chakras) opened and cleared of obstructions by the Reiki attunements.
These attunements may only be given to a Reiki Healer during their training by a Reiki Master.
