The Effect on the Nervous System

The Activator Method harnesses the nervous system’s power. Each adjustment stimulates the activation of the body’s parasympathetic nervous system, thus triggering a calming and healing effect, and turning down the body’s fight and/or flight stress response.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you also offer exercises?

Yes! As early as your first visit, we provide exercises tailored to your specific needs. These exercises will help you maintain and sustain the benefits of the adjustment, ensuring more long-term relief and improved overall health when used as prescribed. Combining the Activator Method with specific exercise empowers you to participate actively in your healing journey.

How long does an adjustment take?

A typical adjustment using this technique can take only a few minutes, making it ideal for busy individuals to get the consistency of care initially needed for lasting effects, as well as preventative care when it suits them. By focusing on the root cause of the problem, we minimize the need for extra therapies like soft tissue work or acupuncture. However, if such treatments become necessary during the course of care, we have a wide referral source to trusted specialists to ensure you receive the comprehensive care you deserve.

Is this method suitable for all ages?

Yes! It is an effective technique suitable for all ages, from babies to the elderly. We also use the Activator technique with elderly individuals with compression fractures. This helps improve the quality of their lives as well as stimulate their own healing response, providing gentle and precise adjustments that would be impossible manually.
