Body Elements Chiropractic Clinic is proud to announce the addition of a new treatment technique that is producing amazing results in patients all over the world. Developed by Dr. Tedd Koren, D.C., the Koren Specific Technique (KST) uses an advanced kinesiological technique to precisely pinpoint the cause of different problems in your body and then corrects them with special instruments that use low force pressure to adjust the body back to where it needs to be. KST is very gentle and yet very powerful, and patients usually notice dramatic changes from the first visit. Your body will likely hold its corrections for a much longer time with KST, so you can have deeper physical and emotional stresses addressed. Patients who have suffered for many years have found “miraculous” improvements with chronic problems with KST. Dr. Marina is the only chiropractor in Portland certified in KST.
With KST we are correcting a serious form of nerve stress caused by distortions in your spine and structural system. This stress is known as a subluxation. Subluxations can cause physical and mental/emotional malfunction. They are often associated with loss of energy, pain, weakness and disease of all types.
A major advantage of KST is that it permits you to be analyzed and adjusted in different postures: sitting, standing, lying down and/or in the position of injury or dysfunction (subluxation). This is very important because sometimes a subluxation can only be observed when you are in a certain posture. For example, if a person is in a car accident, their subluxations may only be revealed and completely corrected while they are seated.
People have many layers. After the correction of what the body is showing at the time, older injuries, older distortions, older subluxations and older symptoms (both physical and emotional) may surface to release. The release and healing of old injuries is known as “retracing” and is usually part of the healing process.
On occasion patients have reported “cleansing” symptoms such as diarrhea, pus, mucus, headache, fever, etc. as toxins leave the body. These symptoms are usually temporary. It is helpful to be told if unusual symptoms arise. These symptoms may take the form of emotional releases: old memories coming up or unusual dreams. Sometimes an area is so weak and the distortion so extensive that a segment put in place may not stay in position and may need correcting again. Please observe your dreams and physical changes over the next few days and let us know how you are responding.
