Acupuncture
In traditional Chinese medicine, disease is caused by disruptions in the flow of Chi, or energy, in the body. Energy flows through channels called meridians. Each meridian has many acupuncture points along it. Disposable, painless acupuncture needles are used at specific acupuncture points to stimulate the correct flow of Chi through the meridians. Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of complaints including (but not limited to): allergies, chronic pain, dysmenorrhea, insomnia, sciatica, sprain, morning sickness, headache/migraine, rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, depression, anxiety, facial pain, tooth pain, postoperative pain, stroke, induction of labor, malposition of an unborn child, diarrhea/constipation, sinusitis, nausea & vomiting, bladder dysfunction, osteoarthritis, and more.


Cupping
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin. Practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction is created using mechanical devices (hand or electrical pumps). Cupping is used to treat muscle tension as well as scar tissue from injuries and surgery. In Chinese medicine it is also used to treat asthma, lung problems, and open up all the meridians on the back.

Body Work
Myofascial Release
Myofascia = Myo = muscle. Fascia is the tissue that covers muscles, nerves, bones, ligaments, tendons, organs, bursae, etc. Myofascial release is a treatment intended to release tension in the fascia due to trauma (direct, repetitive motion, posture). If there has been trauma, the body tries to stabilize it by creating scar tissue or adhesions. Adhesions are sticky and do not let the muscles slide and glide as they are supposed to causing pain and improper function. 


Visceral Manipulation
Visceral Manipulation is an effective therapy in treating a wide range of digestive issues including acid reflux, hiatal hernia, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea, nutrient deficiency disorders, gall bladder problems and more. Visceral Manipulation is also a very effective therapy in relieving menstruation and menopause issues.


Manual Nerve and Vessel Therapy
Manual Nerve Therapy provides assessment and treatment approaches to address restrictions of the neural components not commonly focused on with musculoskeletal symptoms. Neural Manipulation identifies and releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examines the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body, and by accessing this relationship, resolves the more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns.


Manual Lymphatic Therapy
Manual Lymphatic Therapy releases restrictions along the vascular structures using direct techniques on the arteries like compression, decompression and elongation. Increased blood circulation to an organ improves function of the viscera, and improves the blood circulation to organs, directly and/or indirectly. Excellent for use after trauma and post-surgery, when conventional musculoskeletal techniques give limited pain and functional relief.


Craniosacral Therapy
Cranial-Sacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the cranial-sacral system. By complementing the body's natural healing processes, Cranial-Sacral Therapy is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. It is also effective for a wide range of emotional and medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

DOT Physicals $100

A DOT physical is a checkup that's required for commercial vehicle drivers by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). This exam makes sure you're able to meet the physical requirements of your job. This includes being able to tolerate the health risks posed by sitting for long periods of time.

Sports Physicals
At the beginning of a new competitive season through the school district sports physicals are required before participation. Our office provides sport physicals to get your student athlete ready for a new year and a new season. Basic physicals for adults are also available through our office. However, we are not certified to do DOT physicals.

Optimal Health/Nutrition Training
In Stephanie's words: Healing requires eliminating causes. After much research I sought to adopt the most “natural” diet and lifestyle choices possible. What has made the difference for me, is learning what the body requires to produce perfect health, and then providing it. Make no mistake about this - the diet and lifestyle changes I made did not heal me. Healing is an inherent ability of every living organism.


I will teach you what to do (and what Not to do), and will give you as much explanation as possible. The areas that we will cover include: diet, rest and sleep, air, water, exercise, sunshine, fasting/cleansing, and emotional poise. What’s exciting is that each of these areas are things that we have complete control over. This is exciting because it means that your level of health and vitality is Not dependent on anyone else!

Biofeedback
Chronic stress can dramatically interfere with your ability to learn. Stress can also hinder your attempts to improve or maintain your level of health. Biofeedback is a non-invasive therapy that can often reduce stress by using relaxation techniques, and by increasing your awareness of how your body responds to stress.

Rates: Biofeedback 90 Min $125

Auto Accidents

Car Accidents happen often, and many auto accident injuries do not show symptoms until weeks or even months after the crash occurs. Although these symptoms may appear invisible, there can be internal damage to the musculoskeletal system and soft tissues. At San Juan Chiropractic in Montrose, Colorado, our entire wellness team has helped many patients safely recover from whiplash and other car accident injuries.

Infrared Sauna

What is an infrared sauna?  
Unlike traditional steam saunas, an infrared sauna does not heat the air around you. Instead infrared saunas heat the body directly, warming the entire system. Because of this, an infrared sauna can operate at a lower temperature and still raise the body’s core temperature and creating a deep detoxifying sweat. Our Alpha Wellness Sensations Near Infrared Sauna penetrates the body more deeply than far infrared and is electromagnetically safer. 
 
Near Infrared Sauna Benefits:  
1.) Detoxification 
“Detoxification is important because it strengthens the body’s immune system and helps the body’s biochemical processes function efficiently so that we are better able to digest the nutrients in our foods. Detoxification has also been shown to be helpful with colitis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, auto-immune disease, immune deficiency states, autism, ADD and ADHD.”  -Dr. Rachel West 
2.) Relaxation  
3.) Improved Sleep 
4.) Weight Loss
 
5.) Pain Relief
 Relief from a number of ailments including chronic fatigue syndrome, sports injuries like sprains and strains, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and many more. Infrared wavelengths penetrate the body to create heat, which creates profound therapeutic benefits. They increase blood flow to the muscles, delivering more concentrated oxygen, which creates more energy to heal. – Dr. Jeffrey Spencer – University of Southern California 
6.) Improved Cardiovascular Health 
 At the highest temperatures of our Alpha Wellness Sensations Sauna, the heart rate can be raised high enough to mimic exercise. For those with cardiovascular illness, this temperature can be lowered to eliminate risk as well.  
7.) Lowered Blood Pressure  
8.) Improved Circulation 
9.) Anti-Aging through skin detoxification 
10.) Wound Healing  
11.) Immunity through improved cellular health
