Chiropractic adjustments

When looking at the human body structurally, it is important to consider how the alignment of the bones can have a profound affect on how it functions.  Most adjustments are performed manually. as this gives the most feedback to the practitioner.  An activator tool is sometimes used for more delicate procedures.  The "Diversified" technique is primarily used at Schafer Chiropractic.  It is the most researched method and is the one most commonly taught at chiropractic colleges.

Common Question:  Do I need to see the chiropractor to receive massage therapy?

Answer:  It depends on the type of massage.  Therapeutic massage requires an  examination by the doctor.   It is a treatment for conditions involving muscular damage.  Dr. Schafer should asses your condition to see if therapeutic massage is warranted or perhaps even contraindicated.  Therapeutic massage  may cause further pain if your condition is not properly diagnosed.  However, a "spa massage" may be done without being seen by the doctor.

Nutritional Consultation $30
What diet is best for you?  Low-carb? Vegan? Gluten -free?  Dr. Schafer will recommend a diet based on your symptoms, and your body characteristics, not on passing fads.  

Therapeutic Exercise

Balance.  Flexibility.  Strength.  Which of these is most important?  All of them.  Only a trained professional with years of experience can pinpoint your weak link and correct it.  It is essential that the patient become actively involved in this process.  Body weight exercises, elastic bands, and stretching all combine to make the recipe for success. Most exercises can be reproduced at home without any expensive equipment.  


Exercise Correction

Sometimes pain can  derive from incorrect exercise form, poor exercise choices, or just doing too much too soon.  As a former personal trainer, Dr. Schafer can recommend changes to your exercise form and selection, and identify injuries which are likely due to exhaustion.

Massage and Manual Therapy

Healing the muscles, tendons and fascia is necessary to restore normal motion and decrease pain for many conditions.  Many overuse syndromes involve muscular damage, and it can be difficult to seperate muscular vs. joint pain.  Massage  therapy techniques can accelerate the healing of these tissues, decrease stress, and make you feel like yourself again. We also utilize manual therapies including trigger point therapy, myofascial therapy, and manual stretching.  Communication with the chiropractor ensures that  the most pertinent areas are addressed. Combining massage and manual techniques with chiropractic re-alignment ensures that you improve both structurally and functionally.

Ayurvedic / Spa Treatments


Reiki
Reiki is the ancient healing art and science of healing and balancing the body's life force energy on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level through the laying-on of hands.  This treatment is done with the client fully clothed.

Chakra Balancing
This is a wonderful treatment for low energy and stress relief.  With the use of Reiki, your seven major chakras are opened and balanced for a feeling of harmony and well being.

Healing Spa Signature Massage*
This treatment combines Therapeutic Massage with Reiki.  Each section of the body is massaged, and then balanced with Reiki.  The treatment ends with Chakra Balancing, which leaves you feeling relaxed, balanced and recharged. This is the ultimate treatment for a good night sleep.



Ayurvedic Bodywork**

Vishesh
A vigorous, rhythmic massage treatment using warm herbalized oils specific to your current imbalances.  This treatment breaks up adhesions, stimulates lymphatic flow, and guides impurities out of the body.  Your body will be relaxed and your mind will be cleared.

Shirodhara
Warm herbalized oils are poured in a gentle stream over your forehead followed by a relaxing head massage.  This treatment synchronizes brain waves and profoundly coordinates and calms the mind body and spirit.  

Swedna (Steam Therapy)
Since ancient times, steam therapy has been used by traditional healing systems around the world to improve and maintain good health and beauty. Ayurvedic Swedna, Turkish baths, Indian sweat lodges, Finnish saunas, Japanese steam rooms-these are just a few examples of cultures that harness the power of steam. Even Hippocrates recognized that by creating an "artificial fever" cure many illnesses. 

Detox Steam
Though the steam itself is detoxifying this treatment takes it to the next level.  We begin with a dry brush technique to stimulate the lymphatic system.  Next we apply detoxifying herbalized oils and mud, you then steam for 20 minutes  the mud is removed and you are left feeling refreshed.

The Healing Spa Lavender Steam
We start with a full body massage using Lavender infused oil, next an organic lavender salt scrub is applied.  Relax while you steam for 20 minutes with lavender petals.  This is excellent for relaxation and rejuvenation for your skin.

Jump Start Weight Loss
This treatment is great for anyone who has plateaued with their current weight loss program or has just begun a new healthy lifestyle or program.  By raising the core body temperature, the metabolism increases resulting in burned calories (not just loss of water weight).  Fat is soluble at 110 degrees, during the treatment you will be losing water weight and fat while burning calories.
