Connecting the mind and body
Upper Cervical is a distinctly different form of health care. It focuses on the top two bones in the neck, C1 and C2. This area has incredibly unique anatomy. It lacks both a disc and boney structures called facets which interlock to help hold the vertebrae in place. Because this area is only supported by muscles and ligaments, it is thus more vulnerable to misalignment than other areas of the spine. A misalignment in this area is called a SUBLUXATION. C1 serves as a conduit of communication between the brain and the body. All messages transmitted from the brain to the body or from body to the brain pass through C1. Therefore, even a small misalignment can adversely affect the health of your entire body. Additionally, it can cause postural abnormalities to occur. This happens because the head sits on top of C1. So when C1 moves, the head must go with it. The average human head weighs 10‐ 14lbs, so if C1 is misaligned by even 1 degree, the body is forced to make muscles spasm in order to hold the head on the body. Over a lifetime this can cause uneven wear and tear on the body and potentially cause pain in muscles and joints anywhere from the big toe up to the top of the head. Since the brain controls and regulates the function of every single cell of the body, a subluxation can have profound effects on your health. All hormone production, sexual organs, muscles, digestion, circulation, respiration, balance, posture, coordination, sensory integration, memory, mood, emotions, etc. are simultaneously monitored and directed by the nervous system. If this electrical force that runs through our nerves is reduced in any way, different areas of the body can degenerate or develop problems over time. Traumas are the most common cause of a subluxation, however they can also occur due to toxins in our environment or diet, or from negative thoughts or emotional stresses. If your body is not working the way you believe it should in any way, or if you want to function at the highest level possible we may be able to help you.

Come and learn how the brain and the top bone of your neck, C1 or atlas, are linked to the symptoms experienced with these conditions!
Our nervous system is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves. This system regulates every single system of our body. It tells your heart exactly how many times to beat per second, the amount of red blood cells it needs to carry oxygen to every cell of the body, etc. The efficiency and regulation of your heart can be impaired if the nervous system is unable to communicate properly to the nerves that control the heart. Come and find out if your blood pressure is simply a response to a stressed nervous system! For more information go to http:// www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=NUCCA+high+blood+pressure

Tuesday, July 30th 6:30-7:30pm Feel like a kid again with more energy, a clearer mind and a body free of aches and pains!
The mindset of many adults as they begin to age is that aches and pains, memory loss and decreased energy are part of the normal aging process. How then, may I ask, are there 80 year olds that are still biking 10 miles a day and other 80 year olds that are dependent on their walkers? Could the answer lie in the health of their spine? Hippocrates, the “Father of Medicine,” said “Look well to the spine for the cause of disease.” He knew and understood the intricate relationship between a healthy nervous system and a healthy person...do you?
Light refreshments and beverages will be provided!
