In addition to chiropractic and acupuncture, Dr. Kris provides a number of unique complimentary services.
Dr. Kris utilizes various adjusting techniques that are suitable for patients of all ages and stages of life. Her unique blend of adjustment styles include both the type that elicit an audible noise - or cavitation - and those that do not, making it possible to provide both wellness and relief care to even the most sensitive or delicate patient.
Adjustments are often coupled with various soft tissue therapies and other modalities including: myofascial release, kinesiotaping, cupping, dry needling, acupuncture, low level laser therapy, stretching and vibration massage. Each patient is also armed with information about home treatments/interventions that may amplify/accelerate recovery such as: therapeutic exercises and stretches, nutritional recommendations, and lifestyle changes.
Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves suctioning bell-shaped, glass, plastic, or silicon cups onto the skin. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this is done to stimulate or improve the flow of energy - or Qi/Chi - but cupping can also be used to improve blood flow to the area and improve the tissue immune response. Both methods are used to improve healing locally in that tissue and throughout the body. Dr. Kris uses the types of cups that are applied using a suction tool - v.s. the traditional fire heated glass cups - and practices multiple methods including: dry, running, flash, and sports cupping.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicinal practice, and one of the oldest healing techniques in the world. It focuses on restoring and maintaining health via stimulation of specific points on the body.
Acupuncture can treat and support a broad spectrum of conditions, including but not limited to pain, anxiety, depression, allergies, fertility challenges, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, drug dependency, headaches, IBS, chronic pain, PMS, sleep disorders, smoking cessation, and weight loss.
Cosmetic Acupunture & the
Cosmetic acupuncture and the Acufacial can eliminate fine lines, reduce deeper lines, encourage a lift of droopy eyelids, a clearing of acne and reduction of age spots. Treated skin becomes softer and more delicate. Because of the overall health benefits of acupuncture, results are not confined to the face. Patients report improvements in health and a sense of youthfulness from the inside out.
