FAQs

Why don’t you “crack” anything, like chiropractors usually do?

In Chiro school, the more I got cracked, the sooner I had to go back for more, until I was ready to drop out. I was fortunate enough to stumble across a technique that didn’t involve any cracking and set me on my current path. Traditional chiropractic has it’s place, but I always focused on the people I didn’t help through mainstream manipulations. Constantly seeking to improve outcomes has led me to a greater understanding of dysfunction and I don’t need to beat people up to get results.

Why is your office so small?

Large, impressive showroom offices are not free; their costs are passed on to the customer. I keep my overhead costs down and pass the savings on to my patients.

How soon should I get my children under this care?

As soon after birth as possible and then have them checked periodically as they grow up.

What is the “Energetic Field?”

Described as the Morphogenic Field in MFT, the term is used to describe the field of energy around the body. It is an extension of the electrical energy of the nervous system. Just as all electrical systems have electro-magnetic fields that surround them, the brain is an electrical generator with its own field of energy that extends away from the physical body. Many cultures and disciplines recognize this field and give it other names. When people discuss auras, chakras, life force or chi, they are possibly talking about this same energy field.
