At Graceful Waves Chiropractic, Energy Optimization and Inner-coherence is our specialty!

Our nervous system magically transmits signals between our brain and our body, helps us interpret our environment, and influences our perception of life!  The quality and accuracy of those communications influence our perceptions, behaviors, structure, and how well we adapt to change.  Using advanced neurological techniques, we “upgrade” the ‘Human Operating System’ through increasing coherence.

As our nervous system is optimized, entirely new options for living become available to us!

Our approach is integrative and holistic.  We see symptoms as an indication that function and ease are impaired, much like the warning lights in a car dashboard.  If the structures and/or nerve signal flow is impeded, our function and feelings of ease are also impeded.

Our care focuses to sustainably raise our clients’ baseline level of health and wellbeing by enhancing the brain-body connections, thus improving overall body function and ease.  Further, our care ‘teaches’ the nervous system to sustainably release unneeded tension, and to turn potential “stress” into “adventure”!

The advanced approaches that we specialize in are Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) and Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI), both part of the larger umbrella of “Re-Organizational Healing” developed over the past 30 years by Dr. Donald Epstein, DC., and further being developed and stewarded by a group of Doctors dedicated to high-level Mastery & outcomes for future generations.

These revolutionary techniques create new adaptive life strategies and increase self-perception of well-being.  A list of such Doctors offering NSA and/or SRI care can be found here:  Find a Practitioner

Graceful Waves Chiropractic is committed to serving the highest level Mastery of Re-Organizational Healing and Living, in order to build self-awareness and conscious awakening of the relationships between the body, mind, emotions, and expression of the human spirit.  Dr. Dawn has been involved in the work both personally and professionally since September of 2000.  More on that in her bio…

It is our great pleasure to serve you – catalyzing access to higher energy levels, resourcefulness, grace and love through coherence in the spine, body, and life!

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to gently, joyfully, and at times humorously develop and expand one’s range of inner healing and wellness-building resources.  Through gentle touch combined with focused attention to breath, movement, and energy, we engage in a unique process of discovery – becoming more aware of the relationships between our body and life.

In essence we develop greater inner cohesiveness, leading to more life energy, flexibility, expanded resources & available choices, increased perception of harmony, trust in one’s inherent wisdom, experience of wholeness, sense of interconnectedness, compassion, and freedom.

Our larger objective is a healthier, happier and more joyful Human Family!
