Empower Yourself to Live a Purposeful Life

That bandage approach may help temporarily but not for the long term. We want to empower you to take control of your wellness so you can live life with purpose. The first step in that is finding the source of your pain or discomfort. We’ll work with you to find that and help you heal.

To do that, Dr. Bjorn uses very specific adjustments. He watches how practice members move and he hears about their lives to determine how to get to the root cause of their discomfort.

Pain Does Play a Role

If we can start to step back and look at our pain, see that any kind of pain—emotional, physical, or spiritual—is fuel to come home to ourselves again for more wholeness. Pain also might also be an indicator that a subtle change can make a massive difference. By making the simple decision to care for ourselves, we can see that we are responsible for our growth and our journey and our reconnection to our whole being.

Be a Gift to Yourself

A yoga teacher dancer says that healing is our responsibility as individuals. It’s not your doctor’s responsibility or your insurance company; it’s for you to be the best you can be. Be a gift to come home to yourself. Dr. Bjorn always hears from people a few weeks into their care, “I’m so glad I was hurting this much because I would have never have done this. Now I have this whole other array of things to pay attention to. I’m more empowered to be responsible for my own health and well-being.”

We want to empower people to care for themselves physically and emotionally. That goes beyond just an adjustment. It’s our goal to ensure that we are not only addressing the symptom or the issue, but we’re getting to the core of why it’s there.

Then we determine what we’re going to do about it. When that happens, we can continue to grow from places that have been disconnected. We can grow from the tensions that our body experiences from living on this planet.

Addressing Tension

In other modalities, tension is seen as a bad thing. In massage or physical therapy, if you have a lot of tension, it’s something that you’re supposed to get rid of or alleviate. With network chiropractic, tension moves through you as something to observe and feel and breathe with; it’s a lot like yoga. So larger tensions come from emotional intelligence.

Dr. Bjorn had a practice member who was about to get married and found out he was going to move to another country and threw his back out. Dr. Bjorn said to the friend, “You’re getting married and moving to another continent. Do you think that has anything to do with your back pains and muscle spasms?”

Sometimes our bodies need to tell us when we’re stressed. This pain is here because we’re going through a change. Because we honor the energetic energies and intelligence, they are found within the tissues of our bodies. At Network Chiropractic, we work with the energy between our experience, our emotions and our spinal cord, and along with the dura mater, the spinal cord tissues.

Motion Matters

We access the places where the nervous system almost feels like heat or a tingling sensation. That allows the frontal lobe of the brain to digest those feelings. E-motion is energy in motion. Without motion, emotion can’t be released.

“When a practice member is moving with their spine and coaching, I have very specific areas that are the size of an eraser point. That specificity and coaching with breathing allow massive change to the spinal tissues. This creates a bigger release within the whole system,” says Dr. Bjorn.

Much of the emotional release will come from sharing specific movements of the spine, as well as specific areas where there is stress, tension and emotion that hasn’t been addressed and honored. A massage therapist might have helped with the physical change, but a practice member will benefit more from an emotional approach as well.

Holistic chiropractic care honors who we are and our growth in all areas of our life. We look forward to walking alongside you in your quest for a purposeful life.
