Sean and Holly Matteo have been holistic chiropractors from the very beginning, utilizing any and all methods that can help our patients natually. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our offices.

Deep Tissue Massage and Muscle Retraining
While in Chiropractic school, Dr. Sean and Dr. Holly became very interested in correcting muscle dysfunction. They soon realized that this is just important as spinal adjusting if you want immediate and long lasting results. They both have hundreds of hours of training that help their patients achieve this goal. During your 30 minute visit, they will spend 15-20 finding and correcting muscle imbalances.
If you want to truly protect your body from deteriorating while living an active pain free life, there are certain things you MUST do every day of your life! Primarily, the human body needs resources to do all the miraculous things that it can do. Without resources your body will starve and one by one systems in your body will start to shut down. If you eat a balanced diet with a decent amount of fresh fruits and vegetables every single day, you are probably doing alright with your vitamins and minerals. But these aren't what protects you from the TOP TEN DISEASES THAT KILL HUMANS. Nine out of ten of these are preventable with a good daily nutritional regimen. Antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatories are what keeps us alive by keeping these diseases at bay. We can't eat enough fruits and veggies in a day to get significant amounts of these. You must supplement with things that are concentrated sources of both. After 15 years of practice it's become clear that taking pills that were made in a laboratory somewhere, regardless of how pure it is, just doesn't compare with natural sources of nutrition. The Moringa Oleifera tree is what we've been searching for since becoming doctors. One organic, raw, concentrated food source that contains all the nutrition that a human being needs in a single day. All your vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids, 36 natural anti-inflammatories, 48 anti-oxidants, and it's complete protein. Best of all it's a powder that you mix with clean filtered water and drink. No choking down pills anymore!
Essential Oil Therapy
Essential oils, which are extracted from plants, are a powerful, natural source of medicine. Most medications were developed by studying essential oils. There are close to 400 known essential oils and each of them have multiple clinical benefits. In the last two years we have embraced essential oils in every way possible. They are now part of our daily lives and they've allowed us to remove all the chemicals from our house. They are so good that even our kids ask for oils when they need them. While it's a very a large discipline, anyone can learn how to use them as we have. We would love the opportunity to share these amazing gifts!
Chiropractic for Pregnancy and Pediatrics
During pregnancy women often suffer from low back, sacroiliac pain or pain at the front of the pelvis. Studies show that chiropractic is safe and effective during pregnancy to relieve pain, improve sleep and balance the pelvis so that baby has the maximum room to turn head down at the right time. Chiropractic has been shown to shorten labor time, reduce labor pain and reduce the risk of C-section.
Research also shows that chiropractic is safe and effective for children, even newborn infants. A very light force is required to adjust a child and they typically require fewer visits than an adult. There are numerous studies that show chiropractic is effective for ear infections, colic and much more.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each of our patients is a whole person, and helping them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
