Chiropractic Care

Teaching tool of the spine Chiropractic care is a natural and noninvasive way to access your nervous system through the spine. When wear or tear or the 3 T’s (thoughts, toxins, traumas) enter your environment stress gets placed on these nerves. Doctors of Chiropractic work to correct spinal, pelvic and cranial misalignments (subluxations).

When misaligned, these structures create an imbalance in surrounding muscles and ligaments. Additionally, the resulting nervous system stress may affect the body’s ability to function optimally. We use a variety of techniques, including low-force options, to help patients find relief and experience functional improvements.


acupuncture needles in shoulder As a primary form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture is recommended for stress relief and pain control, from headaches to back pain. Acupuncture is also highly effective in treating side effects of chemotherapy such as nausea or neuropathy. Acupuncture may help with allergies, eczema, stress, irregular bowel movements, and PMS.

Acupuncture can assist women during pregnancy as well from morning sickness to backaches to loosening the soft tissue to allow baby to find the best position. Children can also benefit from Acupuncture or Acupressure. For younger children who may not be able to lie still for Acupuncture, Dr. Leonard can use Acupressure instead. We utilize auricular, ear, acupuncture and moxibustion.

Essential Oils


Safe and natural, essential oils have become very popular and are recognized as being helpful in one’s health and wellness arsenal. At Healing Path of Rockford, Dr. Leonard uses the Young Living™ brand. She sometimes uses essential oils on the needle points during Acupuncture as well as in the Chiropractic setting. The benefits of essential oils are many:

Decreases inflammation
Manages stress
Helps detoxification
Alleviates headaches

Depending on the type of essential oil, some can be diffused, used topically or even ingested. Dr. Leonard is highly knowledgeable about how to use oils properly to enhance their benefits.

Therapeutic Exercises

At Healing Path of Rockford, we teach our patients how to perform exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these therapeutic exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan.

Research has shown significant functional improvement and shorter recovery time when therapeutic exercises are performed in addition to chiropractic treatment. These exercises can decrease pain, prevent muscle deterioration, promote joint health, increase strength, stability, and range of motion, and protect against new and recurring injuries. Our office team will show you how to do the recommended chiropractic exercises and supervise you until you are comfortable doing them on your own. Our various modalities include:

Strengthening Exercises
Stretching Exercises
Electric Stimulation

Massage Therapy

Healing with Massage Therapy People benefit a number of ways by combining Chiropractic care and massage therapy. Both therapies work together simultaneously creating a synergistic effect resulting in much faster recovery time. Correction of one’s structure often occurs more easily and with less discomfort. The positive results of Chiropractic care lasts longer when muscle tension is released, which might otherwise pull one’s structure back out of alignment. Therefore it is easy to see that Chiropractic and massage therapy compliment each other.

The bottom line is that Chiropractic and massage therapy are compatible forms of health care that share the goal of your total well-being, not simply an absence of illness. Both offer natural hands-on, drug-free techniques. They can be used as preventative as well as restorative therapies. When used in combination, they help you maintain your optimum                                                                                                                    health and enjoy life to the fullest!
