In case you were wondering,  the C.C.W.P that Dr. J is affiliated with is the Certified Chiropractic Wellness Practitioner certification through the International Chiropractic Association , not the California Coalition for Women Prisoners.

This means that Dr. J has studied revolutionary protocols for wellness and prevention based on years of scientific research regarding the human genetic requirements with respect to nutrition, exercise, thoughts and emotions.

Yogic Anatomy


One could get buried deep in the biomechanics and neurology of the human body. Nevertheless, having a basic understanding of these two subjects can propel you to a higher level of health and connectedness.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a yogi, martial artist, pregnant woman, or athlete… you can take you life to the next level if you understand the basic elements that shape our existence. This knowledge results in less pain, fewer injuries, accelerated recovery time, and enhanced performance.

When we combine the science of the west with the philosophy of the east we get a complete person…a whole person…. not just a body, not just a mind…but a mind connected to the body through an intricate connection of nerves that are clear of interference.

What is most vital to your health and vitality is an understanding of the shape and orientation of your bones, joints, and muscles, along with the application of a holistic body-mind training program that addresses all aspects of your self.

That is why we offer workshops on yogic postures & anatomy, as well as core rehabilitative exercises, designed to improve flexibility, increase strength, and calm the nerves.

Chiropractic 101 A

Chiropractic is a mind body discipline. The mind and body and linked together by the nervous system. The nervous system is protected by the spinal bones. And chiropractors are intimately involved with the relationship between the structure and alignment of the bony armor and the function of the nervous system.

Chiropractic aims at the balance, adaptation, and harmonization of all the essential human elements, the mind, the body, and the spirit. This is accomplished by clearing the nerve system, or inner-net, of interference.

Since the inner-net is the integrating master of all the systems in the body and is the ultimate anatomical vehicle for elevating and transforming consciousness, it is essential that it be maintained on a regular basis.

Chiropractic recognizes an intelligent life force that animates all living things. This intelligence uses our nerve system as the medium to transmit life, light, chi, or prana throughout the body. When this life force flows freely from the brain down the cord out the nerves to the tissue cells one is able to fully express their genetic potential.

When this flow of intelligence is obstructed due to a misaligned spinal bone, the whole human ecology is greatly affected and distorted. Our hormonal balance, our perceptions, our strength and coordination, our ability to handle stress and recover, our ability to grow, and our inner foundation are all compromised. This obstruction to our nerve system is called a vertebral subluxation. Vertebral, specifying a vertebrae or one of the 24 spinal bones, and sub-lux-ation, specifying, less light in expression.

Chiropractic optimizes human performance and productivity by detecting and correcting subluxations through the chiropractic adjustment.

People chose to enter chiropractic on many different levels: To relieve stress from their high paced lives, as a holistic component for strengthening and invigorating the body, as a healing art for physical challenges, or as a path to experience higher levels of consciousness.

Whatever your motivation, chiropractic offers profound benefits that will affect all areas of your life: improve posture, ed inner awareness, enhanced human performance and creativity, and optimal neurological expression.

By making the body and mind stronger chiropractic allows you to be flexible and dynamic with every new moment.

Just as ecology teaches us to live in harmony with the other beings on planet Earth, chiropractic teaches us to live in harmony with all the integral parts of ourselves. As we achieve balance on the inside we come to recognize balance on the outside.…

Why the Spine?

So……why do chiropractors focus on the spine, and what does the spine have to do with innate intelligence and fulfilling your potential in life? Well, as it turns out, a lot. The spine is made up of 24 bones which cover and protect your ‘communication superhighway’ – the spinal cord. It is via this neural network that your innate intelligence informs and coordinates the delicate dance which we call life.

Your chiropractor strives to optimize your spinal and nervous system function so that you can accurately interpret, and then appropriately respond to your life’s calling. In pursuing this purpose your chiropractor uses natural, safe, and carefully administered techniques structured and individualized to your personal physiology.

If you are already health conscious you will be aware of the important role of many aspects of the chiropractic lifestyle. You will likely know that regular exercise, a good diet, minimizing stress and maintaining a balanced mental attitude are all important for achieving and sustaining your best. You should also know about that important part of the equation upon which all others depend…….the nervous system.

The nervous system is the master control system to all cells, tissues and organs in the body. The health and proper function of your spine is essential to this system. The other components of the chiropractic lifestyle are obviously best pursued when spinal and nervous system function are at their best.…

Chiropractic Adjustment Cuts Blood Pressure

Study Finds Special ‘Atlas Adjustment’ Lowers Blood Pressure

http://www.chiroeco.com/chiropractic/news/1052/52/Study:-Atlas-adjustment-decreases-blood-pressure/

With millions of people getting amazing results and research project after research project backing the findings, Chiropractic finally gets it’s props on the #1 medical web site in the world.

Tens of millions will give this response after reading this research article, “I didn’t believe it. Chiropractic is good for the heart?” The proof, however, is in the stethoscope!!!!

Whether or not you have symptoms or a positive tests, you need to find out if your atlas is in it’s normal position before it’s too late, deadly, and in need of the medical model.

The atlas is the top bone in the spine upon which your skull rests. When you do your Funky Chicken exercises your skull glides on this bone. When you shake your head “NO” your atlas rotates on the bone below, the axis-C2.

When the atlas gets stuck it causes interference to the nervous system, specifically to your BRAIN STEM! All you have to do is do a google search on the brain stem and see how important that area is for FULL BODY FUNCTION! That is why it is vital to get adjusted and keep your joints gliding….not degenerating…thereby allowing your nervous system to function at it’s natural level.

For those under Chiropractic care ….. this is truly exciting when you realize that getting adjusted isn’t just good for your joints….it’s good for your heart..your lungs…your liver…your life! You get the point!…

Research proves that people using chiropractic care are happier, healthier and more productive.

Study after study consistently shows that people who utilize chiropractic care either exclusively or in conjunction with medical care do not get sick and injured as often, return to work faster, take less dangerous medications and costs for care are less than traditional medical care alone. This translates into more productive employees, less sick days and as your health insurance claims decrease because your employees are healthier your company’s rates decrease because of decreased utilization.

What Techniques Does Dr. Brook Use?

Chiropractic Techniques Used by Dr. Brook

In order to customize the right chiropractic technique for each person I studied with several chiropractic masters. The list below is a brief explanation of the techniques I use to adjust and correct one’s subluxations.

If you have any questions about any of the techniques I use, feel free to contact me any time.

PALMER METHOD

This will involve any of a number of specific adjusting techniques, such as full spine, gonstead, & HIO, with the addition of a philosophy which emphasizes  the role of the Innate Intelligence of the body in the healing process.  It will not utilize any therapy other than hand adjustment.

THOMPSON

A specific technique for adjustment of the full spine on a special table which has a slight drop in the cushions to improve the effectiveness of the adjustment without as much force into the patient.

GONSTEAD

A specific method for full spine adjusting utilizing the use of full spine x-rays to locate spinal mis-alignments.

H.I.O. — Hole In One AKA Toggle Recoil

A specific adjustment of the upper cervical spine… the upper part of the neck, closest to the brain.This technique utilizes a side posture table with a cervical head piece which makes a slight drop when the adjustment is given.

MLS

Developed by my mentor Dr. Arno Burnier. It is an advanced technique that involves visualization, motion palpation, and advanced delicate adjusting.

MOTION ANALYSIS (PALPATION)

An examination procedure used to test the mobility of spinal joints by feeling for movement between the vertebra.

ACTIVATOR

It is a small had held impact tool in which a quick impulse is applied to correct a vertebral mis-alignment according to a set pattern.

How it Works – Your First Visit

Your First Visit to The Life Center Chiropractic

The purpose of the first visit is to gather information about your past and current health status.  After a brief tour of our office, you will sit with Dr. Jeremy Brook in consultation, to determine how we can best assist you.

Should chiropractic care be an option for you, you can choose to have a comprehensive chiropractic analysis performed.  This will include a full spectrum evaluation consisting of motion spinal palpation, computerized sEMG examination, infra-red thermography, and range of motion studies . Assessment of your spine follows to reveal exactly how your body’s performance is being compromised by vertebral subluxation- a misaligned spinal bone that interferes with the transmission of vital nerve signals.

Dr. Brooks Reviews Findings

That afternoon or evening, Dr. Brook will review your findings, then analyze them in detail to determine two things:  1) any unusual findings, which when present, may alter our Recommended Program of Care or facilitate possible follow up by another health care professional and 2) highlight any precautions necessary for you to receive chiropractic care.

Your Chiropractic Game Plan

Once we have done so, we will integrate these findings with the results of your chiropractic analysis and design a personalized game plan.

This visit has two primary purposes: 

1.  Discuss the findings of your chiropractic analysis and once fully understood

2.  Discuss your Program of Care and associated financial responsibilities.

It is recommended you bring any family members, significant others and friends that are involved in your life and your decisions.  There is no charge for this follow-up consultation.  Plan on spending 60 minutes at our office.

Should chiropractic care be appropriate for you, you can choose to begin care on this visit.  You will be taken to our comfortable adjusting suite where you will receive your first chiropractic adjustment; the first step towards regaining and maintaining your health.…
