Yoga and Chiropractic a Match Made In Heaven?
Chiropractic care and yoga are core building blocks when working towards a wellness lifestyle. The definition of health is a state of being free from illness while wellness is defined as the act of being in good physical and mental health.
At Northern Edge Chiropractic we take this to heart and have integrated it into our brand and vision. We truly believe that you need to live a wellness lifestyle in order to achieve the goal of good health. Fortunately, yoga and chiropractic complement each other perfectly, and when they are combined on a regular basis can produce some amazing results.
Yoga means “to join or yoke together” and dates back to ancient times as a spiritual exercise used to promote greater personal freedom, a heightened sense of self-understanding, health and ultimately a long life.
Chiropractic means “done by hand” and is the epitome of natural health care dating back to the early 1900’s.
The underlying theory of chiropractic is that by keeping joints moving properly we can reduce the amount of nerve interference allowing better communication between muscles/organs and the brain. Ultimately this leads to our body functioning at a higher capacity reducing pain, increasing the immune response, preventing further disease and increasing the awareness of the mind, body and spirit.
At Northern Edge we believe that wellness is a lifestyle and that by combining yoga with chiropractic is the most effective way to keep the mind, body and spirit in a healthy state and functioning at its highest level.
We recommend getting adjusted twice a month and supplementing yoga in between adjustments to help keep the spine in alignment, remember we always want to be proactive with health care as opposed to reactive with pain.
