Black Rock Holistic Health Center, we offer a holistic approach to the
treatment of acute and chronic pain.
The key to the holistic approach to treating health problems, such as
neck and back pain, disc herniation, muscle pain, headaches, and fatigue,
is to get to the root of what is the cause.
Listening to the patient is an important part of our approach to therapy.
Based on the patient feedback, we use alternative therapies, such as
chiropractic, acupuncture, homeopathy, and nutrition to re-establish the
patient's immune system and musculoskeletal health and balance.
At the Black Rock Holistic Health Center, we are certified in other
techniques such as Applied Kinesiology and Graston that complement the
other therapies we use.
Since each patient is unique, we tailor the therapy to the patient's
needs and sometimes combine more than one therapy to achieve a pain free
improved quality of life.

the shoulders, jaw, elbows, feet, or knees.

acupuncture does much more than reduce pain, and has a beneficial effect
on health. Patients often notice an improved sense of well-being after
