Q. What are the benefits of combining the practices of chiropractic and yoga?

A. Chiropractic and yoga healing philosophies understand the triune of health and life: a balance of mind body and spirit. Recognizing that healing is a journey composed of learning, self discovery and empowerment, The Kaizen Center for Health and Wellness approach to health encourages the practice of yoga to anchor the patient to their healing process and provides a tool for lifestyle changes.

Pre- adjustment yoga calms and initiates balance to the patient’s nervous system. Practicing prana, one of the most important aspects of yoga -- deep rhythmic breathing- releases tension in the mind and body -- prepares the body on a deeper level to accept a specific chiropractic adjustment.

Post-adjustment yoga encourages strength stretching, rehabilitation and stabilization, after the spinal column has been placed into neutral position.

Q. How are chiropractic and yoga for my health rather than just for my back ?

A. Most of us have vertebrae out of position. When these physical events happen, vital spinal energy is interrupted. By following a continuous régime of chiropractic and yoga your nervous system will restore balance allowing your central nervous system brain and spinal cord to relay all messages without interference to all organs muscles and body structures.

Q. Why should I choose The Kaizen Centre over a general chiropractic practice?

A. The power that made the body heals the body. The wellness team at Kaizen understands the inherent recuperative powers of the body. The Kaizen Centre for Health and Wellness is a facility whose perspective on health and disease emphasizes two fundamental concepts:

Structure and present condition of the spine designates how the body will function and heal itself.

The mind-body spirit- relationship balance is paramount in maintaining health and the healing process.

The Kaizen Centre focuses on the patient’s recuperative and rehabilitative abilities rather than on surgery. We believe that healing occurs from inside out and we recognize the dynamic equilibrium to achieving a homeostatic balance between lifestyle environment and health.

Incorporating yoga and chiropractic in technique is a health care model that honors each patient’s individual innate healing process.
