Princeton Integrative Health offers Family Chiropractic care using the approach known as Bio-Geometric Integration or BGI.
What is B.G.I Chiropractic?
The approach known as Bio-Geometric Integration (B.G.I.) is an acceptance that everything in our bodies is connected. This means our bones, ligaments, blood chemistry, thoughts, emotions, and the interactions we have with our environment, are all connected. When you receive a chiropractic adjustment, all of these pieces shift and transform to allow for healing to occur. The adjustment affects your whole body, starting in your cells to restore the brain and body connection. It is so much more than just moving a bone.
B.G.I. chiropractic care is unique because it acknowledges that even the smallest force affects the whole system, making it a gentle approach to the adjusting process. When a doctor is able to identify where your subluxations or blocks in your internal communication network (the nervous system) are, it doesn’t take a lot of force to unblock them, but rather, a keen awareness of helping your brain realize the block is there, and in turn, encourages your body to work on clearing it.
Each type of tissue, whether it is bone, muscle, organ, lymph, etcetera, carries a different tone. For example, bones are denser than your organs, and your heart has a much different tone than your liver. Within each type of tissue, it is ideal for the tone to be the same in order to adapt to life’s experiences optimally. When there are differences in tone, this leads to communication issues between the brain and body, not allowing information from the brain to be conveyed efficiently to that specific area of the body. In chiropractic, we call this a subluxation, and the long-term result of this is symptoms. Indigestion is the symptom and the result of the body’s inability to adapt to life’s experiences (which come in the form of thoughts, traumas, or toxins) which leads to subluxation. Removing the subluxation DOES NOT address indigestion, but rather frees energy in the body to allow space for healing.
