At Brooklyn Integrative Health Care, we offer a combination of services that benefit the mind and the body to help create vitality, balance, good health, and alleviate pain. Please explore the following healing benefits:
Chiropractic care starts with a detailed structural and functional analysis. This includes a complete spinal exam, advanced non-invasive infrared and surface EMG (Electromyography) evaluation of nerve and muscle function and, if warranted, X-rays to determine the exact location and severity of a vertebral subluxation ( spinal nerve imbalance). Once the area of nerve irritation is identified, a series of gentle adjustments are performed to remove the interference to the mental impulses that travel over the nervous system and regulate body function.
It is our belief that the body is a self-healing organism and is programmed to want to heal. The goal of all our therapies is to help remove the interference to the normal healing process.
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drug free treatment that facilitates the healing process and alleviates pain and discomfort for many conditions.

We evaluate hart rate variability, bilateral vascular tone and muscle spasm because we know how damaging stress can be to the body. Stressors in your life can lead to a bevy of problems including hormone imbalance, chronic pain and fatigue, depression, and bone loss, just to name a few.
By utilizing the Heart Math© system of accessing heart rate variability, you are able to see how well your nervous system is handling your current level of stress. Specific breathing exercises that Heart Math© has developed are utilized to allow your nervous system to reach a state they call Coherence (balanced and healthier). This well-researched method can have a profound effect on physical and mental well-being.
