Chiropractic at Twin Waves Wellness Center is MORE than Neck and Back Pain
When you hear the word, chiropractic, what do you initially think of? Is it, back pain? Neck pain? Aligning the spine? I think it’s safe to say that most people when they hear the word chiropractic, think of some sort of physical issue or condition that relates to the musculoskeletal system. While this is absolutely true, most are surprised to hear that chiropractic is relevant to, and can help with, a variety of health concerns, including digestive issues, hormonal imbalance, depleted energy levels, anxiety, and depression. Additionally, chiropractic takes a holistic approach to health and wellness. It takes into consideration not only your physical health, but your mental, emotional, and spiritual health as well. At Twin Waves Wellness Center, we see you and your body as already whole, and this includes your physical/mental/emotional/spiritual self.
Network Spinal – A Holistic Healing Approach
I experienced this holistic healing approach when I had one of my first introductions to Network chiropractic. During the time, I had just started chiropractic school and was overwhelmed with excitement. As with any major life transition, I was also faced with the stressors that come with it: the move from Southern California to the Bay Area, starting a new school/career path, and I had just ended a serious relationship. In addition, I was experiencing severe neck pain that seemed to keep coming back.
My first spinal entrainment, or network chiropractic adjustment, changed the course of my life and how I was living. Gentle and specific touchpoints along the spine enabled me to connect with parts of myself that I had long forgotten. Unexpectedly, I had a major release and completely fell apart on the table. Tears started streaming down my face as I was finally able to let go and acknowledge the emotional stress I was storing inside my body.
Through Network chiropractic care, I was able to realize that I was blocking many things out, making myself numb to the major life changes I was experiencing. And not only that, but I was storing this stress in the bones and muscles of my neck. Network spinal entrainments helped me work THROUGH the stored trauma and pain, and realize that it’s OK to feel and experience the emotion of what was happening.
It was such a relief to finally acknowledge what was happening within my body and life. By releasing stored tension and trauma throughout my body, Network care has helped me deal with stress and adapt to what’s happening in life, rather than blocking it out and storing it in the back of my spine. And funny enough, the more I worked through my emotions and let them MOVE me, the more my neck pain seemed to dissipate.
We Participate in Our Own Healing
Although it may feel scary, allowing ourselves to actually BE with our emotions can be extremely healing and transformative. In fact, when we give ourselves permission to FEEL and fall apart, we allow other aspects to healing as well, including our bodies, minds, and spirits. Health comes in many forms. As physical beings living in a physical world, we tend to put our attention only on our physical health. But what about our mental health, our emotional health, and our spiritual health? Do we even consider that by giving our mental-emotional health some TLC, our physical symptoms might improve?
Chiropractic is a lot more than just neck pain and back pain, and I was able to experience this firsthand in chiropractic school. THIS is why we do what we do. At Twin Waves Wellness Center, we take a holistic healing perspective on health and well-being. We believe that you must actively participate in your own healing in order for sustainable and long-lasting changes to occur. Through entrainment and gentle and specific touchpoints made along the spine, the brain and body are able to reconnect, helping you to experience all that is authentically and truly YOU.
