From its beginnings, chiropractic was about restoring “tone” in the body. D.D. stated in his first writings that “the purpose of the chiropractic adjustment is to reunite man the spiritual with man the physical, so that the finite may know itself as the infinite.” More and more people are discovering that each of us has the capacity to increase our potential. Restoring harmony and balance is the main purpose of an adjustment.
The idea of “humming along” is not merely a musical phrase. The scientific community and researchers in many fields are finding that the core – the basis – the bottom line of healing in a body in tune with its own tone. With that in mind I am sharing a portion of a presentation made by Keven Donka, D.C. to chiropractors at a series of seminars in New Jersey After you read them, think about how being fully present and connected to yourself at all levels affects the quality of your life.
The DVD “The Secret” has been seen by millions around the world. There is much discussion about the Law of Attraction which in Chiropractic we call the Law of Resonance or Tone – an increased level of vibration enabling us to operate more effectively and efficiently.
Roger Sperry, PhD, who received the medical Nobel Prize for brain research in 1981 stated “Better than 90% of the energy output of the brain is used in relating the physical body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for thinking, metabolism and healing.” This requires an alignment that enhances a “…clear neurological connection.” – A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT.
There are over 100 techniques or ways of “doing an adjustment.” Each has value and worth. The technique I use primarily is Activator – a hand held instrument that delivers a measured thrust. Regardless of the technique, the purpose of the same – REMOVE INTERFERENCE – RESTORE ENERGY. Along with this is the deep knowing that …YOU ARE GREATER THAN THE SUM OF YOUR PARTS.
In chiropractic we call this the VITALISTIC approach to health rather than the MECHANISTIC idea. Vitalism acknowledges the unique innate intelligence that is within each of use. It is this intelligence that heals the cut from within. It is this point that requires our own awareness and RESPONSE – ABILITY to assist the healing process. An adjustment is so much greater than the mechanical thrust given. It is the very essence of the quality of one’s life.
