Our Chiropractic Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

Energy Balancing Techniques

Additional Energy Balancing Techniques are utilized to individualize each adjustment. Dr. Colleen has also completed 2 levels of training with renowned endocrinologist, Dr. Diana Schwarzbein. Dr. Schwarbein sub-specializes in metabolism, diabetes, osteoporosis, menopause and thyroid conditions. Dr. Colleen is a certified Level I Schwarzbein practitioner which means she is certified to advise patients through the first four steps of the Schwarzbein Principle Program; healthy nutrition, stress management and sleep, tapering off toxic chemicals and smart exercise.
