Dr. Etter chose his career in the world of alternative medicine because of his own experience with poor health as a child. For many years, he suffered from anxiety and panic attacks with little help from conventional medicine. After exploring alternative methods, Dr. Etter began to see improvement in his health and realized the importance of an integrated approach toward healing the body and mind.
The word 'chiropractic' in fact derives from the words 'chirality' and 'practice', which combine to mean the practice of balance or symmetry. Since the body is much more than joints and ligaments, a much more comprehensive approach toward healing must take place. Every cell of the body depends upon proper neurological flow from the brain and spinal cord. In addition, modern science shows us that unresolved emotional stressors have detrimental effects on our health. Ancient Chinese medicine understands this principle very well and thus is also utilized in Dr. Etter’s holistic practice.
Chiropractic in its original meaning means ‘healing by the hands’. The word ‘chiral’ is embedded in the word ‘chiropractic’ and means balance or symmetry. Therefore chiropractic is the practice of balance. Mechanical adjustments are used to induce balance of the spine and neurology in the chiropractic art. Every single cell of the body is dependent upon proper central nervous system flow which is housed in the spinal column. Manipulation improves neurological flow which in turn has effects on the entire body.
acupressure point therapy
Acupressure is a form of point reflex therapy message in which certain points are stimulated to induce specified body functions: it is the massage version of Acupuncture which involves needling these points. This system is based in the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine and is used to mobilize energy and fluids in the body. Each organ of the body has its own meridian, or energy path that runs along certain routes of the external body. Health is vibrant when these meridians are flowing; any and all imbalances may occur when meridian energy is restricted or impeded in its motion. This method is quite relaxing and very effective in relieving pain.
Neuro Emotional Technique
Neuro Emotional Technique, or NET, is a kinesiological technique that seeks to access emotional imbalances in the human body and to eliminate them with efficiency and delicacy. Much of our science, particularly quantum science, has slowly begun to uncover one of the greatest secrets that the ancients knew all along: our bodies become our beliefs. Basically, every single cell within our body has its own energetic frequency; this determines the overall health and performance of the cell, which is the fundamental unit of life. In our modern age, we find ourselves inundated with incredible amounts of stress, and this stress, when unaccounted for, can settle within the body and create imbalance. NET utilizes the body's wisdom to locate emotional disturbances and to remove them in order to restore ultimate performance and function.
