  • Minerals. I can't think of a system in the body that isn't dependent on them! From hormones, immune system, fertility, genetic expression, digestion, detoxification, musculoskeletal, endocrine, metabolic... I could keep going! 
This picture shows a significant deficiency in almost all minerals tested for. We will need to work on absorption! We are what we absorb!

  • THIS IS CHIROPRACTIC! “Yes!!! I do treat that”... I like to sing it to the world. People think chiropractors are limited to “cracking bones”. While yes I do sometimes adjust, I also do work on muscles,tendons and fascia. I use a variety of tools in my toolbox including #kinesiotaping #medicalacupuncture #pilatesrehabilitation #chiropracticadjustment #exercises #cuppingtherapy ... just to name a few! 
So to answer your question “I didn’t know you could treat that?” YES I can treat Achilles tendinitis, bursitis, muscle tears, sprains and strains and work on any and every single part of the body that is injured and causes you pain.
