Awareness is perhaps one of the most important tools for attaining better health. It is developing an attentive nature with your self and becoming more conscious of personal behaviors, habits, patterns, needs and sensations. Through an on going process of developing a deeper understanding of yourself and with your own perceptions and mindfulness, you gain knowledge. This knowledge empowers you to know which steps you need to take to best attend to your needs. With greater awareness you empower yourself to be your own healer. We are here to assist you by providing tools to develop greater awareness that further involve your participation along with our guidance.
2) Stretching and Flexibility Exercises:
Stress and anxiety are often the result of changes we experience in our life. They may originate in the mind, but they don’t stay there. This stress and anxiety takes up residence in our musculoskeletal system, bringing with them muscular tension and sometimes even structural imbalance. Muscles and their tendons attach to bones, therefore muscle tension can pull unevenly on bony structures and may pull the spine back out of alignment even after the initial correction and as the body is restoring itself to better alignment. As a result, due to a lack of normal nerve transmission from the brain to the various tissues throughout the entire body, the healing and recovery process is adversely affected. The daily stretching program reduces muscle tension and pain.
3) Massage Therapy:
Massage therapy and other soft tissue techniques are offered by the The Britannia Bodywork Centre that is associated with our clinic. Massage is a gentle therapy that can relieve pain, and in combination with spinal correction, can help heal a variety of conditions. It can also help to prevent their return. Massage acts directly on your muscles with stretching and kneading motions. It also gently stimulates the nervous system to instruct muscles to relax even more. This soft tissue care is extremely important and very helpful in the recovery process as your body is changing and improved structural balance is restored and maintained.
4) Basic Nutritional Recommendations:
The quality of our nutrition will influence our energy simply because the foods we eat are our source of fuel to keep our various body systems working. The better quality the fuel is, the better the body will operate. Integrating more fresh whole foods and 8-10 glasses of good quality water a day is a simple step that will make a significant difference in how you feel and how your body heals. Improved nutrition will help the energy of the body that is needed for self healing and to support the soft tissue and neurological changes during the process of recovery.
5) Lifestyle Management Techniques:
Stress causes tension and reduces vitality. Developing stress management tools is important in helping reduce muscle tension. This will help speed up the recovery of your condition. Since all healing is self-healing that requires energy, stress reduction also conserves vital energy needed to heal your condition. It will be to your advantage to have extra energy available to help you heal. As much as possible, the initial period of care is not a time to be wasting energy on worrying. So managing fears and anxieties is always very helpful with your healing recovery and we will offer you some simple and effective tools to assist you.
6) Healthy Homework™ Assignments:
We have created Healthy Homework™ to challenge you in making positive changes in your lifestyle and possibly accelerate your level of healing. We feel that true health is not just physical comfort, but a holistic union of well being on all levels. This is why we present your homework focus in 3 different perspectives-body, mind and spirit. We will explore 3 different ways of approaching one singular subject. It is always important to remember that your healthcare is your own practice, so you will need to create a program that works best for you. This may mean pushing comfort zones at times and pulling back at others. You will need to monitor yourself and create new awareness of your body. At first you may need to experiment a bit, but with effort you may learn to enjoy these exercise programs on all levels… mind, body and spirit.
7) Other Tools:
There are a wide variety of other tools we offer through the clinic that have been thoroughly researched and tested. These are products that we have found to consistently improve the health and well being of many thousands of patients. They work to regain and maintain you on a variety of levels. A few of these tools are as follows:
A) Supportive Pillows and Back Supports:
Supporting your spine and its alignment is just as important when you are resting as when you are being active in the world. The Normalizer pillows we retail are specifically designed to contour to your neck and entire spine to offer the best support and relaxation while you sit and sleep.
B) Nutritional Supplements:
We understand the key role that supplements play in a healthy modern lifestyle. We offer a variety of high quality products that will help the body rebuild itself and maintain good health. These are available for purchase at the Britannia Clinic®
C) Advanced Learning Programs:
In depth programs offered through other institutes can assist in creating deeper awareness of the root cause of many chronic health problems. For those conditions that may not have responded to other therapies or treatments we recommend further investigation. We are constantly searching for complimentary programs that will assist you in the process of healing because we fully appreciate the complexity and depth of some conditions. We know there are some especially chronic conditions that do not respond in a traditional way. Since this can pose many challenges to some patients, we are committed to helping our patients fully recover and regain a healthy and vital quality of health and life by recommending other programs. Other institutes of higher learning offer these programs and we have literature and contact information available for your review.
