Innate intelligence is the body’s ability to heal and repair itself naturally without any outside assistance. The brain controls the tissues and functions within the body by sending messages through the central (brain and spinal cord) and peripheral (nerves entering and leaving the spinal cord) nervous systems. If there is interference or irritation to these systems, the result will be altered function of the tissues or innervated structures.


My approach, which is based on functionality and balance, is to help your body heal itself. Based on your medical history and exam findings, I can determine the joints, muscles and nerves involved in the dysfunctional area of the body. My responsibility is to help restore function and balance to these working motor units. My patients often recognize secondary benefits in overall health condition after treatment.
A treatment will include an adjustment. You will lie on a table, and I will apply gentle force. You might hear a cracking sound, which is gas being released from the joint spaces. I usually schedule my new patients for one hour and follow-up patients for 30 minute time slots.
