Dr. Lori Breiner Whole Body Chiropractic

Applied Kinesiology Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a unique system for evaluating body function. The body is a self-regulating mechanism and when health is lost, something is interfering with the body’s adaptability and its ability to cope with different stresses. Examination using AK is directed toward how the body is dys-functioning, the cause of the dys-function, and the therapeutic efforts that will enable it to regain and maintain health. Muscle testing can be thought as functional neurology and the correct treatment reestablishes balance and strength to the muscle and body.

Total Body Modification
This very sophisticated system of kinesiological testing (muscle testing) enables the practitioner to discover imbalances or blockages impairing optimum health and function. TBM is able to evaluate, reset and rebalance internal organs and most of the known body functions by stimulating reflex points located along the spine which will correct imbalances of functional physiology. TBM can help balance blood sugar metabolism, improve water utilization and neurological function (thinking, concentration, memory), strengthen immune system response (virus, bacteria, parasites), and open energy circuits to facilitate energy flow, enhance digestion and circulation and also assist in clearing emotional blocks. While basic chiropractic is used to correct the structure and influence the function, TBM corrects functional physiology (the way the body works).

Mindful Stress Reduction
Emotional stress or trauma can cause a physio-pathological state in the body, which is sometimes difficult to resolve. Dr. Breiner has developed a Stress Reduction Program to normalize unresolved physical, emotional and/or behavioral patterns in the body and assist the body and mind in the healing process. This is accomplished by identifying and balancing unresolved emotional conflicts and stress and utilizing mindful meditations, Neuro-Emotional Technique, Emotional Freedom Technique, exercises, emotional affirmations and personal gratitude goal inspiration to change negative patterns into a relaxed, deep healing and calmness throughout the body and mind. The techniques will create lasting decreases in pain and tension in the body, create greater energy and enthusiasm for life, an increased ability to relax, improved self-esteem, and an increased ability to cope more effectively with stressful situations.

Clinical Nutrition
The food you eat has a direct impact on your life. It impacts the way you feel, your level of energy, how you think, your mood, your sleep, your weight, your digestion, your hormones, your overall health. Optimum nutrition is important for immune system strength and adaptability, sports performance, stress and allergy resistance and nourishing brain and body for adequate learning and growth. It is wise to choose your foods carefully and respect your body and mind by enjoying plenty of fruits and vegetables, good quality proteins, healthy anti-inflammatory fats (such as flax, coconut oil and fish) and fiber rich foods. Occasionally the body needs additional support. Dr. Breiner has clinical knowledge to discover nutritional deficiencies, dis-biosis (irritated digestion) and will recommend specific supplements with a specific whole food nutrition plan.

Hormone Balancing
Hormones are chemical messengers that are produced by the endocrine glands and are carried by the bloodstream. Hormones are involved in just about every biological process: immune function, reproduction, growth, calcium utilization, metabolism and weight management, emotional state, sleep cycle, and they even control other hormones. By analyzing hormone utilization and maintenance by the different endocrine glands, we can gain an understanding on the health and vitality of the person and facilitate the delicate endocrine balance.

Allergy Elimination
The first step in this process is to gain an understanding on what is causing the allergy and imbalance and then using various alternative techniques, we can de-sensitize the body and clear the blood, lymph, cells and body from the allergen. This kind of de-sensitization is very effective in detoxifying the body and clearing the body of toxic reactions and adverse symptoms.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy
The Cranio-Sacral system (CST) is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Cranio-Sacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and releasing restrictions in the Cranio-Sacral system to improve the functioning of the Central Nervous System. By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. It is also important for babies and children to mold the nervous system efficiently. Sports injuries such as concussions can off-set and damage the Brain and Nervous System, and CST has been proven to refocus and reset this imbalance very effectively.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, health is achieved by maintaining the body in a “balanced state”; disease is due to an internal imbalance of yin and yang. This imbalance leads to blockage in the flow of Qi (vital energy) along pathways known as meridians. Qi can be unblocked, according to TCM, by inserting fine acupuncture needles at specific points on the body that connect with these meridians, to balance the flow of energy and restore the body’s natural state of health. There are at least 14 meridians or main channels connecting the body in a web-like interconnecting matrix of at least 2,000 acupuncture points widely used to treat many different illnesses, and to maintain good health.

It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute or chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality.

Cold Laser is widely used to treat wounds, inflammation of any kind, Acute and chronic pain, sprains/strains, tendonitis, bursitis, fibromyalgia, reduced vascular activity, reduced fibrous scars and adhesions, stimulates nerve function and more.
