The Holistic Chiropractic Care approach is a philosophy. It assumes that the body as a whole, is greater than the sum of its parts. It is presupposed that there is a spark or life force that moves the body and the absence of this life force is death.
Holistic chiropractic care is a physical approach to health.
It’s intent is to relieve muscle/skeletal pain. It’s very effective at doing this. The assumption is that this relief is intended to allow the flow of vital life force throughout the whole body.
Basic, traditional chiropractic approaches focus on the quantity of life force flow through the body as the status of good health. Holistic chiropractic care focuses on the quality of energy flowing through the body, seeing this as a greater factor in determining the robustness of one’s health.
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. Not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. This also includes having the ability to lead an economically productive life.
So using the above definition, ideal health would look like:
- Robust physical strength and vitality or Quantity of Life Energy
- Mental and emotional well-being (happy) or Quality of Life Energy
- Social connection and feeling loved or Quality of Life Energy
- Ability/opportunity to flow money or Quality of Life Energy
