The body is capable of extreme healing, sometimes it just needs a little help being reminded of this. We have many different modalities that we use to correct imbalances. Some of these imbalances are:
Pre-Surgical Prep and Surgical Recovery
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Childhood Trauma (Emotional or Physical)
Difficult or Painful Pregnancy
Illnesses (Chronic and Acute)
Terminal Illnesses (For patient and family)
and many more…
Happens when the sympathetic nervous system goes into overdrive and stays there. The sympathetic nervous system is engaged when outside stressors come into our world. It is a protective system to get us out of danger and to a safe place. What happens when we never perceive this safe location? The sympathetic system never stops working….This can cause shortness of breath, panic attacks, sleeplessness, fidgeting, digestive disorders, high blood pressure and many other symptoms.
When a traumatic brain injury (TBI or concussion) occurs, it disrupts the rhythmic pump and flow of cerebrospinal fluid. This fluid revitalizes the entire brain and spinal cord with nutrients and toxin removal. When this pump is not working effectively, toxins buildup in the brain and nervous system causing nervous disorders; some disorders happen immediately and others can show up months and even years later. It’s important to treat concussions soon after injury occurs. Just some of the symptoms of concussions: headache, focus problems, balance problems, light / noise sensitivity, memory problems, confusion, personality changes, sleep disorders, vomiting, dizziness / vertigo, slowed reaction times, sluggish feeling or low energy.
When the body goes through drastic changes in a quick period of time, ligaments may not stretch appropriately and cause pain for the mother and create restrictive growing conditions for the fetus. Restricted ligaments can tilt or distort the uterus positioning. This can lead to developmental distortions in the fetus. Also, restrictions in the mother’s tailbone, can lead to disrupted blood and nutrition flow to the umbilical cord and ultimately, the fetus; not to mention, difficult labor.
