A body in alignment heals itself
The nervous system is at the very core of how the body functions and it controls every organ and muscle in the body. Physical and emotional stressors we experience in daily life cause increased tension in the body and alter the normal alignment of the spine. Misalignments in the spine, called subluxations, interfere with the health of the nervous system and inhibit the body’s own natural healing abilities.
Subluxations can cause symptoms such as:
- neck & back pain
- digestive issues
- sleep problems
- weakened immune system
- low energy
We use a unique process called artful chiropractic; a blend of techniques that includes breath work, movement, and specific adjustments to align the body. This process focuses on identifying the fundamental dysfunctions in the body and why certain symptoms are presenting. By addressing the underlying problem, rather than symptoms, we achieve long lasting positive change.
Wellness care is for those who want to take their health to the next level. Most people think of chiropractic for neck and back pain, but regular chiropractic care can do much more. It not only promotes a pain-free body, but also stimulates your body and mind to function more optimally. Changes such as increased energy, sharper thinking, and a stronger immune system are typical with regular care. We believe vitalistic chiropractic can be the foundation of your health routine in the promotion of ongoing wellness.
Pregnancy & Pediatrics
The Webster technique for pregnancy is a chiropractic technique used during all stages of pregnancy. It serves to improve pelvic dysfunction, reduce stress in the uterus, and create the best environment for a growing baby. This technique has shown to reduce stress on the spine, decrease back labor and back pain, shorten overall time in labor, and promote a natural and safe birth process. Patients that receive the Webster technique while pregnant often report an easier labor and less pain throughout pregnancy.
Mothers under our care usually begin bringing their babies in to be adjusted not long after birth. They often continue with their care throughout the first year of life to support the many changes in growth and neurological development that take place.
Misalignments in babies can cause symptoms such as:
- inability to turn head to one side
- difficulty latching
- preferring to latch on one side
- frequent crying
- irritablilty when held
- flattened occiput
Adjusting infants and young children is very different from adjusting adults. Subtle and gentle adjustments often made with just the tip of a finger are all that is needed to restore spinal alignment and improve the health and function of the nervous system in babies and kids.
Misalignments in children can cause symptoms such as

Does chiropractic hurt?
No. We practice a gentle style of chiropractic that incorporates breath work, movement, and adjusting the body while it’s in a state of ease and relaxation. This makes the adjustment experience pleasant and enjoyable.
What’s that popping sound?
The popping sound is a release of gas from inside the synovial fluid, which is a fluid inside your joints. When the gas is brought out of the fluid by the sudden increase in space, a sound is created much like when opening a soda bottle. The gas then lines the inside surface of the joint making it frictionless. This is how we are able to increase range of motion in joints that have been stuck.
Do you accept insurance?
We do not accept insurance, however we are happy to provide you with a receipt that includes the necessary coding for you to submit to your provider. We recommend checking with your insurance company to see if you are covered for chiropractic services and if so what specific conditions are covered. Keep in mind that we do not allow insurance companies to interfere with our recommendations for care as we consider your health the number one priority in our practice.
How often do I need to come in?
Each treatment plan is customized based on careful analysis and the health goals of our patients. Our care plans vary from once a week to three times per week depending on individual needs. We focus on holistic care which involves addressing the root cause of dysfunction in order to provide lasting change. This is different than a symptoms based approach which generally involves a shorter course of treatment, and provides temporary relief.
Can babies get adjusted?
Yes, we adjust lots of them! Pediatric adjustments are gentle and safe and can help prevent future health challenges. Proper spinal alignment and nervous system function is vital to maintaining your child’s health especially throughout the first year of development. We adjust children of all ages to support their health through the different phases of life.
What if I don’t have back and neck pain?
Most of our patients come see us to increase the health and function of their bodies. Regular chiropractic adjustments improve overall health and prevent future problems from arising. Although we give careful attention to aches and pains, our treatment goes beyond symptoms and addresses the root cause of imbalance in the body.
What conditions can chiropractic help with?
Chiropractic increases how the body functions and stimulates a natural healing process regardless of your condition. At Life Studio we follow a vitalistic philosophy for health and wellness. Vitalism is the understanding that the body is self-healing, self-regulating, and self-maintaining as long as it’s in a state of balance, free from interference. As interference is removed from the spine and nervous system, numerous conditions and ailments may begin to resolve.
What is a subluxation?
A subluxation refers to the structural misalignment or fixation between two or more adjacent vertebrae, causing nerve irritation and resultant alteration in normal mechanical and neurological functions. In short, it’s a misalignment of the spine which interferes with how your body functions and can affect your overall health.
What is the Webster technique?
The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic analysis used during pregnancy. It involves gentle adjustment to the sacrum and involved soft tissue structures that have an effect on the proper function of the uterus. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce stress on the sacrum and sacro-iliac (SI) joints to improve health and function to uterine muscle. This improves pelvic function and promotes a natural birth process.
