At Natural Care Wellness Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Eliot office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Scott T. Ferreira has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Acupuncture stimulates the body by using specific points to heal itself by restoring and regulating energetic imbalances. Acupuncture helps unblock energy pathways and restores blood flow to organs and tissues. Acupuncture is used for treatment of acute and chronic conditions, back pain, headaches, and overall wellness. We use a Japanese style of treatment using needles and/or micro current (for those afraid of needles).
The main objectives for acupuncture treatment are: reliving the pain and other symptoms, strengthening the immune system, as well as, balancing, harmonizing, and integrating functions of the organs with each other. This makes for a unified, healthy person, rather than a collection of fragmented disharmonious parts. Chi (pronounced chee) is the vital force which separates the living from the dead. Its balanced, unimpeded flow is critical to sound health.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Fitness Classes: We also offer a variety of small Boot Camp Classes, Pilates classes, and one-on-one personal training sessions. In warmer weather, we train outdoors in an obstacle course to get you ready for Spartan or Warrior Dash Races. Check out the Class Page for more details.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
Neuro-Emotional Technique is a scientific proven technique. Emotions such as fear, anger, grief, and many others can negatively affect us long after the original event that caused them. When our body fails to “let go” of these emotions, we can find ourselves with unexplained aversions, self-sabotaging behaviors, destructive beliefs, phobias, and many chronic physical problems. We use NET to identify and help you let go of “stuck” emotional patterns stored in your body and help you release them. It’s fast. It’s fun. It can dramatically improve your health.
Nutritional Counseling and Nutrition Response TestingSM
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Scott and Dr. Jody can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
Nutrition Response TestingSM is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying causes of ill or non-optimum health. We are testing your body's neurological reflexes. These reflexes tell us how your nervous system is doing as it relates to your organ function.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculo-skeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Posture and spinal screenings can reveal important health information and unlock the door to improved health and well-being. We provide screenings at area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.
The three main functions of the colon are:
- The final digestion of food
- The elimination of digestive residue
- The discharge of toxins and wastes from the body
We experience better health and well-being when the colon is clean and functioning normally. When the colon is congested with stagnant wastes, poisons back up into our system and pollutes the inner environment. This is called autointoxication, which literally means "self-poisoning". All of the body's tissues are affected by the autointoxication. This "self-poisoning" can be a causative factor in numerous serious diseases, and is considered by many to be the underlying reason for disease.
