Holding is Healing

…and precision is key

The effectiveness of the NUCCA correction does not come with getting adjusted continuously, but rather when the body is holding the adjustment. Specialized images of the upper neck allow the NUCCA doctor to measure and design a precise adjustment specific to an individual’s unique anatomy. Correction of the upper neck misalignment reduces stress and creates more ease in the body, allowing it to more effectively engage its natural repair and recovery processes. As the body strengthens in an aligned state less adjustments should be needed over time. Our goal is to help you recognize what it looks and feels like to be in alignment vs out of alignment and build your tool kit to help you maintain core balance in your body!
