Many people view Chiropractors as bone-crackers or back doctors. A Chiropractor is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine who specializes in a non-surgical, drug-free approach to natural health.
Chiropractic has become America’s most popular form of alternative health care to more than 25 million patients annually! Spinal health is an aspect of health that is often overlooked until we experience a problem with it, like a sore neck or back. We have a billion + nerve pathways carried by the spine which may be the key to a wide range of health conditions such as arthritis, headaches, chronic fatigue, and digestive ailments. The spinal chord is the lifeline of the body and spinal health is about caring for the brain, spinal chord, and nervous system, as well as the health and wellbeing of all our body systems and parts.
The body has an innate ability to heal itself. While there are many forms of Chiropractic treatment, Bio-Geometric Integration is a unique, innovative approach to Chiropractic that uses light touch and gentle structural adjustments to encourage the body to self-heal. This relaxing holistic treatment allows the body to gradually release years of tension while restoring the body to maximum health and vibrancy!
I’m lucky … I have a Chiropractor in the family! My sister, Dr. Elisabeth Schneider (aka Libby) is a Holistic Chiropractor who practices Bio-Geometric Integration in Lake Havasu, Arizona. She wrote a very interesting and informative article on Bio-Geometric Integration and I’d like to share it with you!
“Understanding Bio-Geometric Integration”…
Have you ever heard that your biography becomes your biology? The condition that your body is in now is the sum total of all that has occurred in your life coupled with how well you integrated it. Tension is the result of stress that did not integrate, but stored. The stress can be from physical, mental, emotional, and chemical trauma. These stresses that are not integrated into your mind and body get stored as tension patterns that run throughout your body like ribbons running from head to toe, back to front, side to side.
The results of this constricting process is…….
Increased tissue tone (denser, tighter, harder, less elasticity) Altered posture (tension pulls you out of your normal position)
Decreased circulation of blood, lymphatics, nerve tissue, and chi (life energy within the human body)
Accelerated degeneration of tissues and bones
Altered body chemistry (distorted tissue makes distorted responses)
Decreased ability to cope, etc. etc. etc…
Bio-Geometric Integration (BGI) provides a framework to read the body and follow the tension patterns. Light contacts are made on the points where the tension patterns anchor into the body. This process allows your brain to address that pattern, discharge the energy stuck in that pattern, so that it can finally resolve and integrate. In computer terms it’s like hitting control, alt, delete on stuck programs. Bio-Geometric Integration reverses the problems listed above in a very gentle relaxing manner.
