Chiropractic comes from the Greek "kheir" hand and "praxis" action and therefore means done with the hands . It was created in the United States in 1895. There are now over 100,000 chiropractors working in 90 countries.
Chiropractic is defined as:
a Philosophy : the vital force / innate intelligence that created the body also heals it, when there is no interference.
a Science : this vital force is expressed within the Nervous System which regulates and coordinates all the functions of the body.
an Art : the adjustments, precise and rapid manual movements specific to the chiropractor, free the body from its interferences.
HeArt because: the heart, in addition to its physical and anatomical importance, is intimately connected to the brain and the body via the emotions. When the heart and the brain are in a state of coherence, the body can reach its full potential. The heart is also what connects us to each other.
The art of chiropractic is our way of loving and helping people.

What is CHIROPRACTIC?
In chiropractic, we honor the fact that the body is an amazing organism, so wonderful and well made that science still has a lot to discover about it.
Chiropractic is based on the fact that the body heals itself and regulates itself thanks to its innate intelligence .
Some very simple examples:
when we cut ourselves, with or without a bandage, without doing anything except waiting, the body will repair itself, heal.
when the weather is hot, the body sweats to regulate itself and maintain its optimum temperature.
when we eat something toxic, the body will eliminate it by vomiting.
Every day, THOUSANDS OF BILLION cells work and communicate with each other so that we can lead our lives without thinking about what needs to be going on in our bodies.
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
allows to regulate and coordinate everything that happens in the body.
The nervous system is: the brain, the spinal cord, and all the nerves that derive from it to connect each organ, muscle, cell, etc.
The nervous system is a real highway of information that circulates constantly, from the brain to the body and from the body to the brain .
When there is no interference on this path, all is well, one can live life to the fullest with a body that is functioning at its maximum capacity.
IN CASE OF INTERFERENCE, GOOD COMMUNICATION BETWEEN BODY AND BRAIN IS NO LONGER OPTIMAL.
The informations received and sent are no longer always accurate, which can lead to dysfunctions and a kind of anarchy within the body .
Little by little you can start to feel pain, conditions, which are the body's way of firing the alarm .
This is often where people come to see us.
OUR GOAL IS TO RESTORE THE BODY'S HARMONY BY FREEING UP THE INTERFERENCES VIA THE ADJUSTMENTS.
This way, the body can gradually regain a better balance, repair itself and heal as a whole as it can do so well when everything is working great.
IF THE BODY IS SO INTELLIGENT, WHY DO INTERFERENCES OCCURE?
The body and the brain are very resilient , but when different stresses build up or during trauma, our ability to adapt and deal with all these disturbances decreases.
The stresses of life can be:
birth, falls, sedentary lifestyle, repetitive movements, accidents, intensive sport etc.
food, pollution, pesticides, medicines, alcohol, tobacco, drugs etc.
relationships (personal, family, romantic, professional), finances, health etc.
relay antennas, cell phones, Wi-Fi, bluetooth, microwave etc.
The body will then "store" this excess of information / disturbances that it cannot integrate in the form of tensions and blockages.
This is called subluxations in chiropractic.
When the subluxations remain, little by little, the body and the brain adopt a posture and a physiology of survival , defense and protection , which deprives us of our vitality and gradually degrades our health and therefore our quality of life.
Our goal is to detect these subluxations and release them through adjustments so that your nervous system is free from interference and can function optimally.
