It is truly amazing to think about the complexity of the nervous system and the brain….so many nerve signals responsible for all of the communication between our muscles, organs, and cells. The intricate workings of the brain process an immense amount of data from our senses, enabling our perception. By organizing all of the electrical signals from visual, auditory and kinesthetic sources we are able to map out the world before us. We then send signals (called motor signals) to special cells (called muscles) that shorten when stimulated with electricity. This is how we interact with our environment and consciously adapt to it. We have gained so much power from our advanced nervous system, we have learned how to dramatically change our environment. How fascinating it is to add the capacity for emotion, intuition, creating our moods, determining our thought processes, creativity, and higher mental functions. The nervous system regulates virtually every aspect of our mind and our body.
Wellness is more than the absence of pain
"I have been a patient at Pacific Center of Health for several years. The level of care I receive has been excellent. I was having a great deal of difficulty with asthma and the side effects of medications. After getting a series of treatments, my asthma condition cleared up completely. It has been about five years since that occurred and I am happy to report that I am still asthma free! I try to have acupuncture treatments about every six weeks to maintain the good health that I now have. I also enjoy the treatments a great deal, it puts me into a state of incredibly deep relaxation and I walk out of the session feeling revitalized." ~ Anne F.
