Massage with Becky

If You Are Thinking Of a Massage at Pace, Don’t Wait – Here’s What One Client Had to Say After a Session with Becky:

“I had a massage with Becky at Pace Family Chiropractic, and it was the best massage I have ever had – and I have had a lot of massages! Becky did exactly what I asked; focusing on my hips and legs, while giving me a good once-over too. When she had finished the right side of my body, I actually felt as if I were two different people. My hip joint and leg were so loose and relaxed on that side that I felt like I was in someone else’s body on the right. It was incredible. Luckily, she “put me back together” by moving to the left and working her magic over there too.

“After my massage, I had my adjustment. The rest of my day was fantastic. I could walk much better, and I am still feeling the results a week later!”

Becky has been practicing massage for five years, and is a nationally certified New York State Licensed Massage Therapist. Prior to working at PFC, Becky taught Massage Therapy courses at Moore Career College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She is now offering 30 Minute Trigger Point Massage Therapy which can help you get the most out of your adjustments while reducing pain in your problem areas all at an affordable rate.

Nutrametrix Daily Essential Kit

Opt for Optimum Health with nutraMetrix Daily Essentials

One of the things that we offer at Pace Family Chiropractic is an awesome line of “nutraceuticals” by nutraMetrix. One of the best deals available is the nutraMetrix Isotonix Daily Essentials Kit, which includes the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients your body needs in four essential supplements. The cost of the kit is $139.95, which is almost 30% less – a $56 savings- than buying these products individually, so I highly recommend it.

When you purchase the the Daily Essentials you get:

• nutraMetrix Isotonix OPC-3, a powerful antioxidant that helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, joint flexibility, cardiovascular health and circulation, and combats free radicals throughout your body.

• nutraMetrix Isotonix Multivitamin, which contains 100 percent or more of the recommended daily value of essential vitamins and minerals to complement your diet.

• nutraMetrixIsotonix Activated B-Complex, which delivers metabolically active forms of several vitamins and minerals. Activated forms are important because traditional forms of vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid found in most other B-complex products must undergo chemical changes in order to be utilized by the body.

• nutraMetrix Isotonix Calcium Plus, which delivers calcium and complementary nutrients to keep your bones strong. The unique Isotonix delivery system and the inclusion of beneficial vitamins and minerals – including vitamin D – make nutraMetrix Isotonix Calcium Plus more readily available and easily absorbed by the body.

The kit is available at the office. Ask at the front desk, and don’t wait. Now is the time to optimize your health with regular adjustments and premium supplements.

Until next time,

Dr. Sarah

Here’s another interesting story from a patient I thought I would share with you, and FYI, this is not the only person I have helped with this problem:

“I had a huge lump on my collar bone. My doctor told me it was a calcium deposit resulting from a fall. I couldn’t wear a necklace anymore because it didn’t hang right, and that was pretty disappointing. When Dr. Sarah saw it, she said, ‘that isn’t a calcium deposit, you must have injured your clavicle awhile back and your shoulder needs adjusting!’

“I could not believe it. I had been walking around with this giant lump that my doctor just poo-poo’ed, when there was something simple that could fix it! I was mad….and thrilled at the same time. After a series of adjustments, my collar bone is basically back to normal, and I can wear my jewelry again. Thank you Dr. Sarah!

“A word to the wise: always check with Dr. Sarah if your primary care doctor says there is nothing he or she can do for you.”

Pace Sensory Development Program

Did you know that 1 out of 6 children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder such as Sensory Processing Disorder, Autism Spectrum, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, and A.D.H.D? By joining forces with Intersect4Kids, a program that combines optimum neurology, nutrition, neurointegrative exercises, and chiropractic, Pace Family Chiropractic now offers a sensory program with treatment options for kids that are suffering from these conditions!
Pace Sensory Development Program was created with the goal of helping families that are affected by neurodevelopmental disorders. Our focus is to naturally support the neuroimmune, neurogastric, neuromuscular and neurobiomechanical systems to allow maximum innate human expression. For instance, children with neurodevelopmental disorders have difficulty processing sensory input. ‘Visual tracking,’ the technical term for the natural ability of the eyes to follow an object in motion, may develop in an atypical pattern for children with a neurodevelopmental disorder. We use visual tracking to recognize faces, reading, writing and many other daily activities. Children with atypical visual tracking and processing can have trouble with academics, motor function or social behaviors.
I studied under Dr. Monika Buerger, the founder of Intersect4Kids, and our sensory development program is modeled after her work. She is recognized as the leader in her profession, having developed the most comprehensive neurodevelopmental program in the nation. Our program is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any neurodevelopmental disorders. We focus instead on naturally supporting the cooperative work of the body’s regulatory systems. I am committed to making a difference in the lives of kids affected and their families
I am offering Complimentary Workshops that help families learn about the signs, symptoms and characteristics of neurodevelopmental disorders and why so many more kids today are suffering from these conditions. If you are looking for natural options to help your child, don’t miss this opportunity to get more information. Alternative treatment options are available to help children with these disorders. Take advantage of what is available! Please contact the office to attend! Or click here to learn more about Intersect 4 Kids!

Chiropractic Testimonial

Wednesday April 10, 2013

Today I thought I would let someone else tell you about the benefits of chiropractic. Here is a testimonial from one of my patients that I think you will find interesting, and that some of you may be able to relate to:

“I came to Dr. Sarah because I was in pain most of the time. My lower back spasmed when I walked, and I had to stop regularly to bend over and stretch so that I could keep going. I didn’t even realize it until Dr. Sarah pointed it out, but I was bent over forward at the waist. I couldn’t even stand up straight! Plus, I kind of wobbled when I walked.

“Dr. Sarah x-rayed my spine and discovered that, first of all, one of my legs was shorter than the other (hence the wobbling). She gave me a lift for my shoe, and that cleared up. She showed me that my spine looked sort of like an upside down question mark (my words, not hers) and that it curved where it shouldn’t, and was straight where it should be curving. Let’s just say, I was not the model of spinal alignment. I thought I was a lost cause, but Dr. Sarah didn’t even flinch. She said, ‘with regular adjustment and a few different tractions, we will have you out of pain and standing up straight in no time.’

“And she was right!

“But that is not the end of the story. As I started on my program, I immediately saw results. I felt great. So guess what I did. I stopped going! I figured, “I feel good, so I don’t need to finish my course of treatment.” I am writing this to tell all of you who may be thinking the same way I did, that I WAS WRONG. My pain came back, and I was in the same boat again. And I am going to admit that I stupidly did the same thing more than once. And I had the same result each time.

“Dr. Sarah knows what she is talking about when she recommends a course of treatment, so take it from one who knows. You need to LISTEN TO HER. I have two friends who actually did what she said, and they have both been pain free and living happy lives for two straight years now.

“The motto of my story: Dr. Knows Best! Listen to her and follow her advice. She IS the best!”

Sinus and Allergy Problems

Are You Stuffed Up? Chiropractic Can Help!

You are probably thinking, what does having my spine adjusted have to do with my sinuses? It may seem like a stretch, but you’ll be surprised just how much relief can be found when your spine is properly aligned. By relieving stress on the nervous and structural systems, chiropractic care helps your body work more efficiently so that your immune system functions up to par. It also can help to ensure that your skull moves freely, allowing the fluids that need to drain do so properly.

If you are suffering from sinusitis, allergies, or other respiratory issues, please come in for a consultation. Traditional medicine will recommend that you flood your body with antihistamines or other medications that just cover up the symptoms, and may present side effects that can do damage to your body. Some medicines, like nasals sprays, are actually addictive, and can make the situation worse! Once you start, if you don’t use them, you can’t breathe without them! Who wants that???? Chiropractic offers an alternative that will result in health benefits beyond just your dripping nose! Your body will function at peak performance because your nervous system will be sending signals the way it should.

Until next time,

Dr. Sarah
