We thought we would share some good news for all your chocolate lovers out there – studies on dark chocolate show that it may boost your athletic performance. Dark Chocolate is rich in epicatechin, which is converted to nitric oxide in the body. This dilates blood vessels and reduces oxygen consumption — allowing athletes to go further for longer! Of course, eating dark chocolate without added sugar will have the most benefits. You can read more about the studies...

Most people only think of adjustments when they think of chiropractic care; however, it may also include techniques such as acupuncture, ART, soft tissue manipulation and cupping!

The symptoms of Carpal Tunnel include numbness, tingling, weakness, in the hand, and can progress to a point where your grip weakens, and performing tasks such as typing and using a stapler becomes very painful. Time magazine recently ran an article detailing the study done by  Massachusetts General Hospital on the effects of acupuncture on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In the study, one group was given real acupuncture and another group received “sham” electro-acupuncture, which used needles that didn’t penetrate the skin on fake acupuncture points. The group which received the real acupuncture showed measurable improvement in nerve conduction, significant brain remapping, and actual repair. They also have longer term benefits as well, and were more likely to report sustained or continued improvement in functionality—and in symptoms like pain, numbness, and tingling—than those who didn’t.   Just another reason to see what acupuncture can do for...
