Herbal & Homeopathic Remedies
Plants have evolved the ability to synthesize chemical compounds that help them defend against attack from a wide variety of predators such as insects, fungi and herbivorous mammals. By chance, some of these compounds, whilst being toxic to plant predators, turn out to have beneficial effects when used to treat human diseases. Such secondary metabolites are highly varied in structure, many are aromatic substances, most of which are phenols or their oxygen-substituted derivatives. At least 12,000 have been isolated so far; a number estimated to be less than 10% of the total. Chemical compounds in plants mediate their effects on the human body by binding to receptor molecules present in the body; such processes are identical to those already well understood for conventional drugs and as such herbal medicines do not differ greatly from conventional drugs in terms of how they work. This enables herbal medicines to be in principle just as effective as conventional medicines but also gives them the same potential to cause harmful side effects.
Cupping: Oriental Medicine
Oriental medicine is one of the oldest forms of medicine in the world, and its components include acupuncture, Chinese herbs, bodywork, and nutrition. It focuses on correcting the imbalances and treating the whole body, and its gentle treatments provide a long-term solution for a wide range of ailments. Acupuncture Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians. To fulfill its functions, qi has to steadily flow from the inside of the body (where the zang-fu organs are located) to the "superficial" body tissues of the skin, muscles, tendons, bones, and joints. It is assisted in its flow by "channels" referred to as meridians TCM identifies 12 "regular" and 8 "extraordinary" meridians.
Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic is a gentle science that relies on your body’s own miraculous self-healing abilities. Those abilities are blocked when skeletal misalignment prevent nerves from sending their normal messages, leading to such diverse issues as back pain, arm or leg problems, asthma, digestive problems, and even allergies. Chiropractic adjustment treats the underlying cause of such conditions by unblocking those communication channels, allowing your body to correct years of pain and suffering the natural way. We want to be your healthy-lifestyle resource. While other chiropractors focus on sports injuries or catastrophic issues, at Atlas Chiropractic we’d rather help you avoid the big problems in the first place. We can make small, simple corrections to aid your posture, ease or prevent occupational aches and pains, and improve your everyday quality of life so you never have to worry about your alignment again.
Corrective Massage Therapy
Specialty Massage Techniques including Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, and Sports Massage. These massage therapy methods are used because stress from injury or poor posture causes Muscles and Fascia to tighten. As the soft tissue constricts, muscles and bones may be pulled out of place causing pain. Our highly trained therapists use fingers, palms, elbows and forearms to firmly and gently stretch muscles and fascia.
