If you are struggling with chronic pain or healing following an injury, you need immediate, effective relief. But, you also deserve a health care solution that provides long-term pain managment and prevents future injury. Staten Island holistic treatment does just this. Our chiropractor, Dr. Angelo DiMaggio, and our entire wellness team provide holistic health care that treats your entire body, relieving pain and promoting long-term wellness.
At Touch Stone Rehabilitation & Health Center in Staten Island, we believe in a whole body approach to wellness. Traditional medical care focuses on managing the symptoms of illness and injury by medicating pain. While prescription painkillers can provide temporary relief from pain, they cannot correct the underlying problems with the musculoskeletal system. When our spine is out of alignment, our entire body is at risk for injury, illness, fatigue and pain. Our holistic approach cares for the entire body, relieving pain and preventing future problems.
Whether you are recovering from an auto accident or work-related accident, struggling with chronic back and neck pain or feeling overwhelmed by fatigue and stress, Staten Island holistic treatment can make a tremendous difference in your life. Our comprehensive services include chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, reflexology and acupuncture. Our goal with every patient is to decrease your pain and increase your motor function. Our chiropractor finds that complementary therapies naturally speed healing following an injury and improve muscle strength and mobility.
If you are healing from an injury or managing chronic pain, massage therapy is a naturally conservative, holistic treatment that provides immediate pain relief. The physical act of massaging the muscles relaxes the body, lowering the heart rate and breathing rate. Levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that sends our body into a constant state of anxiety, also decrease. This helps to center the mind and prepare the entire body to heal. Fresh, oxygenated blood flushes out toxins and lactic acid from the muscles, while the touch of our massage therapist releases tension. We also offer reflexology massage where our massage therapist applies targeted pressure to the reflex points of your feet. These pressure points correspond with different organs and systems in your body. Massaging these reflex points helps relieve pain and bring balance back to the body.
Our acupuncture treatments are a natural way to relieve pain and promote healing. This traditional healing art is based on the Ancient Chinese belief that our body is comprised of a life force known as the qi or chi. Today, western science recognizes that this "life force" is the body's central nervous system. By inserting long, thin needles into pressure points throughout the body, acupuncture naturally stimulates the nerves, muscles and connective tissues. This stimulation increases blood flow and the level of endorphins, your body's natural painkillers.
Holistic treatments are an important part of optimizing your body's health. Wellness is not a destination, but a journey, and no matter where you are on this journey, our Staten Island chiropractor and experienced care team are here to help.
