Why Light Touch?

Manly’s Light Touch Chiropractic understands your potential for good health.

An amazing health potential resides within you – right now.  You already possess a vitality that is constantly striving to balance your systems and create health.  By nature, you are self-healing and self-regulating.


You were born, smart, strong and beautiful.

The creation of health requires balance. Your bodymind has a built-in genetic intelligence that evolved over millions of years in nature. Just like nature, you possesses a natural ability to balance.  This natural ability to adapt and respond allowed you to create health and live your best life in that natural living environment where you evolved.


Every single cell in your body contains a blueprint for health.

A complete package of ALL the information required to make another one of you resides within every cell.  When able to function with clarity, this information provides for you to create and maintain a level of physical health, mental clarity and consciousness far beyond what  is accepted as ‘normal’.


In essence you are pure potential.

The potential to access and enjoy this true health and 100% life exists within you right now.  You can begin the journey back to rediscovering and expressing your potential today.


But why aren’t you actually enjoying this amazing health potential?

Is there a primary condition that’s causing this problem…?

  •    pain or injury?

  •    poor posture?

  •    lack of energy?

  •    chronic condition?

  •    tendency for illness?

  •    reduced performance?

  •    feeling overwhelmed?


The common factor with all of these problems is physically retained stress.

Your body evolved with only one strategy for dealing with stress – ‘the fight or flight stress response’.  This developed to help you survive a sudden, life threatening event that might occur in your wild habitat.  But in your modern living environment, away from the natural world you evolved for, your stress response actually harms you.


The stress response drastically alters the function of every single system in your body.

As a short term survival strategy the stress response works well.  It changes your posture and movement, your energy levels, digestion, immunity, cardiovascular and brain function to help you survive a sudden threat to life.  Though helpful during short term situations, these changes are actually very harmful if sustained over a long time period.


Modern life exposes you to physical, chemical and mental-emotional stresses everyday.

In today’s world, the sudden life threatening situations of a natural habitat are replaced by constant low-level stresses of modern living.   These new unnatural stresses still trigger your stress response, then keep it switched on at a low-level.  This confuses your body as it tries to deal with a sustained stress response – something it never evolved to do.  Your body strives to restore healthy balance against the changes brought about by modern stress, causing energy levels and performance to decline.


In striving to cope, your body compromises its natural healthy state.

Your ability to adapt to daily life and maintain a healthy balance continues to reduce.  You become ‘stuck’ in a state of imbalance.  The stresses accumulate as tension, nerve interference and compromised function (remember, the stress response alters every system in the body).  Layers of low level, chronic stress response locks deep into your nerve system leaving you susceptible to injury, pain and illness.  It is these layers of retained stress that move you away from health.  Scientists are coining this process ‘allostatic load‘.


Your body becomes disconnected from its self-healing and self-regulating abilities.

Injury and illness rarely occur at the start of this process – back pain, neck pain, injuries etc are the end result of  a system trying to function under layers of retained stress.  Over time, your layers of retained stress have fatigued the bodies ability to restore health.  Pain and sickness are an indication you have moved a long way from your true health potential.  If left unaddressed, the layers of retained stress can eventually lead to chronic diseases of lifestyle.


The Northern Beaches now has a gentle Chiropractic solution to the problem.

The solution for moving from pain and injuries, to discovering a new level of health and happiness.

In today’s world, addressing the universal problem of physically retained stress is the solution to enjoying more from life.  Removing accumulated stress tensions and reconditioning yourself back to a state of balance is a rewarding journey.


As the name suggests, Manly’s Light Touch Chiropractic uses very gentle inputs.

With the Light Touch Process™ you are shown where your body is retaining stress and how it is effecting you.  The gentle Light Touch contacts lets your nerve system become aware that it is storing patterns of retained stress.  This awareness allows your stress response to relax from its habitual tension patterns of defense and dis-ease, to a state of balance and healing.


Your body’s natural ability to integrate retained stresses and self-correct is re-awakened.

Our gentle Chiropractic adjustments trigger your ‘relaxation response’, reversing the stress accumulation.  Your system’s natural process of healing begins a process of releasing stored tension and interference.  Movement is improved and pain sensitivity reduced as your body transitions through layers of retained stress.  Pain, injury and symptoms are resolved by addressing the underlying stress tension patterns that cause them.


Light Touch Chiropractic has effects far beyond superficial pain removal.

Continued removal of retained stress via the Light Touch Process allows you experience an increase level of health and enjoyment in all aspects of life.  Your system works through deeper, older patterns of habitual tension.  Restoring balance and correct function at this level uncovers greater adaptability and resilience to the demands of everyday life.  Energy levels, performance and productivity improves.


You live more connected with your world, with clarity of thought and confidence in yourself.

Increased ease of breath and movement indicates that your whole system is breaking free from retained stress. Structural changes begin to occur along with feeling more present.

Taking effective action to improve your life requires nerve system clarity. Physically retained stress locks you into life-limiting patterns, thinking and acting from the lower brain centres that are associated with the stress response.  Removing retained stress frees you from living in a state of reaction and defense.   Living clearly and making decisions from your higher brain centres is the essence of creating and enjoying your best life.


Consistent clarity allows you to constant improvement.

The more your system clears through retained stresses, the more it creates a habit of balance and living in a state of health and growth.  Ensuring your system is free from the interference of retained stress is similar to keeping your teeth clean and free from damaging buildup…  Except that your nerve system can’t be replaced like teeth can.
