What is chiropractic?

We work within a healing model based on vitalism, which believes that the body is a dynamic, ever-changing organism that is constantly changing and adapting to its needs.


In chiropractic, the body is believed to have an innate intelligence to heal. Illness occurs when the body's natural ability to heal is compromised.

Chiropractic looks at the body's ability to handle stress and the communication between the brain and the body that takes place through the nervous system, which is located in the spine.

Therefore, a chiropractor is concerned with the balance and relationship between the spine and the nervous system.

A dysfunction between the the spine and nervous system may lead to an impairment of the body's innate communication that occurs to and from the brain and body.


In chiropractic this is referred to as subluxation. A subluxation is a term used to describe a condition of  vertebra that is out of alignment with the one above it, below it or next to it, putting pressure on the nerves.  


A chiropractor is the only health care professional specifically trained to detect and correct these subluxations so you can heal and adapt to your highest potential

Through a vitalistic approach to chiropractic, we view each patient as a whole rather than as a single symptom to be treated.

There are multiple techniques we use to detect, find and correct nerve impingements, that we call subluxations.


We believe chiropractic care is a lifestyle & recommend regular spinal checks for you and your whole family.

What can you expect?



During our thorough examination, we perform a thermographic scan, posture examination and chiropractic analysis of your issues.

Based on our findings, a plan of care is drawn up for both short-term and long-term care.


Intensive Phase

You follow your personal care plan for your issues.

This intensive phase is not permanent and will be adjusted in consultation with you based on your progress and wishes.

How many treatments are needed will differ per person.


Maintenance Phase / Prevention Phase

When your body has adapted, you can move on to a less intensive phase.

This generally means that you will need treatment less often to maintain your progress.
