Testimonials

"Last April I hurt my neck one day after helping to lift a Bow-Flex down the stairs.  I could hardly lower my chin, turn my head left or right, and working and sleeping was difficult to say the least.  I went to (the chiropractor) on the advice of my then fiance´ Carl.  I met Dr. Vanloon and she went right to work by assessing if there was a subluxation and where it was exactly.   She started treating me with KST every other day for about 2 weeks.  Following that I went 2 times a week for a month and then finally the last month I went only once a week.  I started seeing results within the first 2 weeks.  I never took any pain medication, nor did I see a "traditional" MD.  It was never necessary!  I loved the gentle technique and fast results!  A BIG thank you to Dr. Vanloon!!!!!!"

"I went to Dr. Vanloon after a painful trampoline accident. After two weeks of treatments, I was feeling like my normal self. After two more weeks of treatment, I was feeling better than I ever had been. As time passed, my visits became more and more spaced out. Through regular exercise and short check-in visits with Dr. Vanloon, I was able to straighten out my pigeon toed feet and improve my posture significantly. Also, it was always a treat to go in for my appointments, she made the process fun and always told me exactly what she was doing. Overall, I could not ask for a better chiropractor!"

My philosophy

I have a vitalistic and holistic philosophy toward health.  Your body is innately intelligent, and I believe the power that made the body is capable of healing the body so long as it is free of restrictions.  The primary way that I do that is to clear your body of subluxations, which are distortions that create interference to the flow of energy through your nerves to all the body’s systems and tissues.  

There are three causes of subluxations: 1. Traumas, 2. Toxins and 3. Thoughts.  The traumas are usually easy to identify, and can present in our lives as accidents, slips or falls, repetitive motions, poor posture, etc.  The toxins are the things we put into our bodies that we do not need, or when our bodies need something that we’re not putting in.  The thoughts are a little more tricky; these can be stressful situations in our homes or jobs, painful or emotional circumstances that we deal with in our lives, or anything in between. 
I am grateful to have found two techniques that very effectively help my patients deal with the dis-ease that stress creates in their lives, B.E.S.T. and KST.  

KST

KST, or Koren Specific Technique, is the primary mode of adjusting I use in my practice.  Developed by Dr. Tedd Koren in 2003, it is very different than more traditional forms of chiropractic adjustments because it involves no twisting or 'cracking'. I use a tool called the Arthrostim to gently adjust the areas of your body that are misaligned, rather than using my hands to perform the adjustment.  Most adjustments are done with the patient in a standing position, but KST allows the freedom to adjust in a position of subluxation or pain.  For example, if you have pain while you're sitting, laying on your side, while working on a computer, playing an instrument or while you're swinging a golf club (or almost anything else), I can adjust you while you are in that specific position or during that activity, which often unlocks the issue and reduces or frees you of pain.  This is all done with little or no discomfort to the patient.  After being adjusted with KST, most patients report that it was the best adjustment they've ever had!

BEST

Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique, or B.E.S.T., was developed in 1975 by M.T. Morter.  It is a hands-on technique that uses very little force to help remove interferences that can create dynfunction and dis-ease and helps to balance the energy in your body.  B.E.S.T. works with the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of your autonomic nervous system.  Generally, they control all of the vital processes of your body, but they also regulate how your body handles stress.  When you are under stress, the sympathetic nervous system goes into the Fight or Flight response.  This physiological process can create imbalances in your body that can lead to acute and chronic pain patterns.  One part of this technique takes into account the emotional aspect of why you don't feel your best, which is rarely addressed in chiropractic techniques.  B.E.S.T. can help balance your muscles and update the 'pattern' being held within your structural body, which removes the pressure from your nerves and relaxes associated muscle spasms.  This is a painless approach to health and wellness that unlocks your body's innate healing potential.
