Welcome, to my site of BioGeometric Integration
  Thank you for taking an interest in seeking chiropractic care, and particularly BGI, for your life. May I introduce BioGeometric Integration to you? While realizing that most people seek some sort of care, when they develop symptoms (frequently discomfort or pain) that alter their  abilities to function in the lifestyles that they would prefer, I know that all signs and symptoms are created by the nervous system for a reason. Symptoms are produced for the purpose of letting folks know of their need for change, and these conditions should not be squelched or blocked. Please note: Dis-ease and Symptoms are not the Cause, they are the Effect. “Signs and symptoms are frequently distractions.” (While referring to ongoing life processes.) ~~Donald Epstein, D.C. , Founder and Developer of Network Chiropractic Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for people to lack self-motivation to seek change in an everyday commitment to  a wellness “routine” - which is actually the development of a healthy lifestyle. Commitment to one’s healing process is extremely important. A quick “fix” only postpones the stuck, resistive energy to be expressed repeatedly or somewhere else in the body and mind. For an individual to only focus on one's back health, when he is in pain, is similar to exercising only when he gains extra pounds or eating healthfully, when his cholesterol is high;  then returning shortly thereafter, when issues are “under control”, to old habits and lifestyle. Supporting a healthy spine, by including Chiropractic care,  along with meditation, adequate exercise, such as yoga, Qigong or Tai Chi, and walking, combined with healthy, clean, dietary choices are extremely important elements toward promoting a life of health and vitality. The body wants to be healthy and whole, if the impediments to be so are reduced and removed. I acknowledge in my practice Vitalistic Wellness principles; BioGeometric Integration provides me with the knowledge and skills to support these principles. Please note: BioGeometric Integration is NOT a treatment, it is a low force, highly specific Chiropractic care, which monitors each individual as a whole, rather than focusing upon individual body parts. Within a pure chiropractic and BioGeometric Integration perspective, simply treating symptoms does not acknowledge the Cause of the condition but rather gives a temporary fix. The BGI doctor searches for “disconnects” , which are areas of the spine and extremities that are void of tone or which may hold areas of higher irritability; these regions may result from injuries or surgery. Disconnects may be chronic or  acute,  and they are an important first step in an adjustment/clear-out in helping the Body-Mind to recognize, reconnect, and reduce these energetic regions. The BGI practitioner next analyzes for correlating tones within pathways, tracks or bands of tension (the body’s geometries), starting on the back of the body and progressing to the front of the body. As an individual adjustment flows toward its completion, and spinal tensions release, cranial (head) segments are checked for resistance and gently released, further bringing ease to one’s nervous system. As she receives care, her adjustments will evolve, and her body will be evolving. As each Member of our practice (we choose this reference rather than “patient”) develops greater strategies within his or her nervous system function, greater dynamic potential for change and Healing naturally is created. “It takes those, who can see the invisible, to do the impossible.” ~~ Dr. B.J. Palmer, PhC, Founder and Developer of Chiropractic If you have an interest in choosing a form of Chiropractic health-care, which promotes a philosophy of healing and Life Force in its art and science, please feel free to access the navigation buttons, located on the top of the page, for more in-depth insights into BioGeometric Integration and my Chiropractic practice.

The Motivation Factor:

Back in 1960, President John F. Kennedy challenged our nation to do more of this activity; for good reasons - it increases levels of norepinephrine and endorphins, which lowers stress and boosts one’s mood. it also enhances brain plasticity, facilitating memory and learning.
