Chiropractic care aims to deliver conservative and preventative medicinal intervention that speaks directly to our personal philosophy on health and wellness. There is a fundamental connection between most disease processes and neuro-fascial malfunction. Chiropractors understand this connection better than most other practitioners and have techniques to mediate proper function.
Our Chiropractic philosophy is to re-educate the body by realigning structures, freeing neural blockages, and encouraging lifestyle and dietary changes to improve body function and overall health.
Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles in different points of the body. Research has found evidence that acupuncture points are strategic conductors of electromagnetic signals. Stimulating points along these pathways through acupuncture enables electromagnetic signals to be relayed at a greater rate than under normal conditions. These signals may start the flow of pain-killing biochemicals, such as endorphins, and of immune cells to specific sites in the body that are injured or vulnerable to disease. It is the stimulation of these points that taps into the body’s innate healing ability.
What Does a Treatment Involve?
The ultimate goal of TCM treatment is to balance the yin and yang by promoting the natural flow of Qi. Treatment involves a variety of techniques, including acupuncture, bodywork, herbal medicine, exercise (Qi Gong, Tai Chi), dietary therapy and meditation. The practitioner may recommend one, two, or several of these techniques. Usually, acupuncture and herbal medicine are the techniques most commonly used.
Can Acupuncture and TCM work with Allopathic Medicine?
Acupuncture can be used along with conventional Western medicine, osteopathic medicine, chiropractic treatment, or naturopathic prescriptions. At Dao of Wellness, our practitioners believe in an integrative approach to health, encompassing all facets of medicine in order to achieve maximum wellness. Oriental medicine is widely being recognized as an adjunct to conventional Western medical treatments not only in helping alleviate side effects of many conventional treatments and medications, but also in improving the efficacy of conventional treatments. Acupuncture helps to speed up recovery, increase circulation, reduce inflammation, reduce pain, strengthen the immune system, and improve overall health and vitality.

Massage and our Restoration Therapy Protocol helps to loosen muscles. All the body’s mechanical operations come from muscle movement; the ability to take in a breath of air, the actual pumping of the heart, and the digestion of your food. Secondly, massage also assists in helping to facilitate the smooth movement of fluids in several different body systems. Third, Massage helps to reduce recovery time after trauma and surgery by bringing fresh blood (and therefore oxygen) and qi (energy) to the site of injury. Medically, massage is utilized to ease anxiety and depression through the mediation of serotonin levels.
