Wholesome Life Chiropractic - Ashburton, South Devon

Why seek chiropractic care

Most people seek chiropractic care due to the presence of symptoms. These symptoms vary greatly from aches and pains, muscle spasms, poor posture, headaches and a whole host of other complaints that are challenging their ability to live and enjoy their everyday lives. We see people of all ages with all sorts of health challenges, ranging from babies and children to semi-professional sports people, and everyone in between.

These symptoms are a way of informing us that the stress that our body is under is exceeding our body's ability to adapt to it. This overload inhibits our natural inborn ability to heal. We provide hands-on care and wholesome, supportive advice, to help reduce these stresses to your body and to encourage natural healing.

About Chiropractic

In 1885 the Chiropractic profession was established by a free thinker and healer named Daniel David Palmer. His desire to know more about health and disease prompted him to ask this question:

‘I desire to know why one person was ailing and his associate eating at the same table, working in the same shop was not. Why? What difference was there in the two persons that caused one to have pneumonia, catarrh, typhoid or rheumatism, while his partner, similarly situated, escaped? Why?’

In essence Palmer hypothesised that assuming good health is the norm and if you are not experiencing optimal health, then something must be interfering with your natural inborn ability to heal yourself.

Over 100 years on, Chiropractors around the world continue to recognise the importance of a fully functioning nervous system to experience a pain free, optimal life experience and we are proud to follow on that tradition at Wholesome Life Chiropractic.

Our different perspective of health....

Have you ever stopped to think about just how amazing the human body is? The human body has an incredible ability to regulate itself and heal itself, without any conscious input.

Your body warms itself when it is cold, digests and takes nutrients from your food, pumps blood to every part of your body. It heals cuts and wounds, fights off infections and is continually striving towards health.

Our bodys are mini ecosystems and need to be nourished and supported in many different ways to continually express true health and wellness. Our modern day lives and lifestyles put more stress and pressure on our body's healing capability, which may result in a multitude of signs and symptoms.

We at Wholesome Life Chiropractic aim to provide your body with the right environment and ingredients for you to heal yourself, to reduce the burden of modern day stressors and allow you to flourish as nature intended. We achieve this by utilising the following three principles...

1. Chiropractic adjustments – All the knocks and bumps over your lifetime, poor posture, poor lifting and sedentary lifestyles along with a whole host of modern day stresses place strain on your body’s joints, muscles and nerves. We use hands-on Chiropractic techniques (adjustments) to restore normal joint motion, correct muscle tone and positively influence your nervous system.

2. Postural correction – Poor posture is rife in our modern day society, the results of which can place strain on all areas of your body, leading to a cycle of declining health. We work to ensure that your posture is as good as it can be, thereby reducing the demands on your muscles, joints, ligaments and nerves, reducing the burden on your body.

3. Ongoing wholesome lifestyle advice – We provide you with up to date lifestyle advice that helps support the inborn needs of the body. As a society, we have forgotten how to properly listen to what our bodies are telling us. We aim to help educate our clients and their families to rediscover this lost art.
