Anyone and everyone. Most patients present to Centered Health with functional illness, that is, a feeling of dis-ease (either physical, emotional, mental or structural) caused by an imbalance in the body.
The goal is to provide a holistic approach to support the patient in releasing their symptoms. The ultimate goal is to continue to educate and treat the patient to maintain a state of wellness and vitality.
Centered Health is a family-focused practice and everyone is family. We treat newborn babies right through to the elderly. No matter what age, everyone deserves the support to lead a more consciously, healthy life.
This is difficult to answer as everyone presents with different complaints, however, generally, we see adults 4-6 times and expect to start seeing some changes (depending on complaint) by the first to third treatment.
Children are generally seen 3-4 times and babies often only need 1-2 visits.
Patients visits are then gradually extended to wellness based visits.
Chiropractic care is about wellness and not illness. We have been brought up in a society where we seek help only if there is a problem, but we must understand that a problem just doesn’t appear, it arises over time.
Our goal at Centered Health is for all of our patients to become wellness based patients so that through regular treatments (eg, two monthly for wellness-based patients) they can maintain a state of vitality and good health both physically, mentally and emotionally. Also so that patients can feel supported and empowered in their health goals.
Anything and everything. Patients present with hormonal issues, lack of energy, anxiety/depression, pain in the body, infertility, bowel issues, allergies – and the list goes on. We are happy to see any complaints and we will always give our honest opinion about whether we can make a difference.
It is a tool used within Applied Kinesiology. Biochemical dysfunctions within the body are assessed with the help of isopathic ampoules. For example the energy production pathway can be assessed to see if a patient is struggling in that pathway, therefore, giving them symptoms. Where in this pathway they are struggling can then show us what the patient needs from a nutritional point of view to support the normal functioning of the pathway.
Functional biochemistry seeks to find the cause of dysfunction rather than just treating the symptom.
The Bachelor of Chiropractic degree requires five full-time years of study. The study is very extensive and includes anatomy, pathology, radiology, biochemistry, physiology and neurology. Chiropractic students are taught multiple different adjusting techniques which give us a wide range of tools from which to work.
Education does not stop after graduation, but rather is a continual process so that we keep up to date with health and what’s changing in the field.
