The art of chiropractic focuses on brain and nervous system health, by reducing physical, emotional, and environmental toxic interferences and then rebuilding healthy life long lifestyles.
A studio is a place where an artist works, creates art and teaches. CLS and the people that serve here are committed to education, empowering you to make healthy decisions, and building your best life.
Our promise is to listen to you and we invite you to partner with us on a journey of health, wonder and better living as an individual and a community.
We recognize the body is a beautiful, complex, self-developing, self-adapting and self-healing system. We understand that the nervous system coordinates all body functions and controls, via the immune system, how we adapt to an ever-changing environment. (For more on this topic visit our BLOG section)
We know that interference to the nervous system results in malfunction, diseases and infirmities, and a reduced quality of life. There are three interferences to your nervous system…Physical Traumas, Environmental Toxins and Emotional Stresses.
Chiropractic's clinical approach is to correct spinal malfunctions that interfere with your nervous system called subluxations.
Our goal is to correct these interferences to your nervous system, allowing you to heal and function more naturally without invasive drugs and surgery. Our deepest hope is for you to express your highest quality of life.
