Chiropractic Care & Bioenergetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.)
The Nervous System is the first system formed after conception. Its function is central to your functioning. Messages generated in the brain in response to external and internal stimuli travel down the spinal cord and out along nerves to control the cells of every muscle, organ, and tissue in your body. Interference at any point along this original “information highway” garbles the message being sent and changes the output further down the line — a muscle is not told to relax, a gland is left to over-secrete, an organ functions improperly— symptoms develop.
As interference is removed from the system, the connection between the brain and the physical body (and between the mind and personal purpose), strengthens. A system free of interference is, by definition, free of symptoms that interference causes. It is prepared to handle new stresses efficiently and primed to fulfill its potential.
A misaligned spine can put strain on other bones and muscles and impede the proper functioning of our nerves, which control our muscles, blood flow, immune system and organs. A properly aligned spine allows the vertebrae to move smoothly and independently and allows the spinal column to transmit nerve impulses effectively throughout the body. This makes our movements comfortable and natural and allows the highly complex mechanism that is our body to operate at maximum efficiency.
When the spine is mis-aligned, it can cause a range of issues and pain. Considering how vital an optimally functioning nervous system is to living a vital and healthy life, almost everyone can benefit from chiropractic care. Treatment is covered by most extended health insurance plans, so take advantage of your benefits and support your health with chiropractic care.
Chiropractors are trained to be nervous system experts. At Pinewood Natural Health Centre our chiropractors offer a wide range of services, each having their own practice interests.
Dr. Alisa Blumberg, DC
As an expert in traditional chiropractic and BEST care it is Dr. Blumberg”s mission to support, guide and empower each patient on their unique journey to re-establishing their fundamental connection to the Power within themselves. She is committed to meet each person at their current level of health and journey with them as far as they can see their potential to be.
In her practice, Dr. Blumberg combines a thorough consultation with careful orthopedic testing, x-ray, and cutting-edge computerized assessment in order to get a multi-faceted picture of each patient’s health. Once a diagnosis has been made, a program of gentle, specific hands-on adjustments is implemented to restore normal spinal alignment and optimal neuronal function.
A commitment to life-long learning has led her to continuing education courses in pediatric and obstetric health, Activator technique and, most recently, to embrace the tenets of Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique – a treatment method that allows her to use a physical but non-forceful energy balancing ‘adjustment’, to tune-in the body to its natural healing power.
BIOENERGETIC SYNCHRONIZATION TECHNIQUE
It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.”- Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.)
Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (“BEST”) balances energy fields by removing interference between your body’s systems and outside forces. Removing this interference allows your body to heal and repair any damage, in addition to relieving pain. BEST also address any damage caused by negative thinking and can help you forgive, heal unhealthy thoughts and emotions, and generally improve your outlook on life. BEST alleviates stress, anxiety, and physical conditions.
Having been “reset” and able now to function at its highest capacity, the brain and nervous system can optimally regulate and repair all body functions and the door is open to the attracting improved life circumstances. The technique involves touching pressure points in the proper sequence while having you think about certain memories. This allows your body to be communicating with your brain, free of interference.
Dr. Sheleena Jinnah, DC
Dr. Jinnah, DC treats a wide range of patients from children to seniors and incorporates several treatment modalities including HVLA (high velocity, low amplitude) techniques, TENS electrotherapy, Activator treatment, and the use of a 4K laser which is now known to reduce pain and inflammation and enhance tissue healing.
While chiropractic is her passion, Dr. Jinnah’s interest is in overall health and she regularly enrolls in courses and seminars to keep up with the ever-changing advances in nutrition, weight management and pain management.
GAIT SCANS & CUSTOM ORTHOTICS
Dr. Jinnah, DC can also perform gait scans to help analyze patient foot biomechanics. She will then recommend and order custom orthotic products which, in turn address specific imbalance and biomechanical misalignment (e.g. flat foot or plantar fasciitis).
