Our Philosophy

You hear a lot about wellness care in reference to healthcare today. In fact, wellness care has taken on a very broad meaning in the healthcare industry. In our practice, we consider wellness care to be the use of natural methods, without drugs to restore and maintain your health. Wellness care is a partnership between you and our office that will greatly assist in improving your life.

Three Solutions To Your Health Problems

  • Reducing chemical toxicity, including heavy metal toxicity
  • Reducing the destructive effects of stress
  • Removing undetected neurological damage

Your Health

Our practice is pleased to bring you the benefit of the Activator Method Chiropractic Technique. As your partner in health care, we are committed to your good health.

Though some believe that chiropractic care is intended to relieve neck and back pain, this form of treatment has more far-reaching benefits. A wide variety of health problems stem from spinal imbalance and dysfunction of the spinal joint and nervous system. Everyday living, stress and old injuries can cause vertebrae to lose their proper position or motion. This dysfunction can irritate your nervous system, causing pain and nerve interference throughout the body.

By restoring spinal balance, chiropractic care aids the body in healing itself. The Activator Method Chiropractic Technique accomplishes this goal through safe, effective and gentle low-force adjustments. Other treatments we offer at Engel Health & Wellness include low level laser therapy, massage therapy and heavy metal toxicity testing.
