Chiropractic Treatment Techniques
Activator Method Technique
Activator Method Technique is a safe and scientifically proven method that has been used on patients of all ages since the 1960’s. Dr. Tammy’s objective is to restore spinal balance in a gentle, effective manner using the Activator Adjusting Instrument. By analyzing leg length inequality, body mechanics, and testing neurological reflexes, Dr. Tammy is able to assist people suffering from a variety of conditions such as neck pain, low back pain, whiplash, headaches, knee and foot pain, sciatica, disc problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder pain, and sacroiliac pain.
SOT (Sacral Occipital Technique)
SOT (Sacral Occipital Technique) is also a comprehensive and gentle technique that has been mastered since the early 1900’s. This method of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the Sacrum (base of the spine) and the Occiput (base of the skull).
The spine is desgined not only holds our body upright but it creates anchor points at the sacrum and skull for various tissues and it also protects our delicate nervous system. When the sacrum is out of balance it has the same effect on the occiput and visa versa. Cerebro-Spinal Fluid (CSF) is a nutrient rich fluid that is naturally pumped throughout the spinal canal, the brain, and the nervous system. It acts as the circulatory system for the brain and spinal cord. Hence, when there is dysfunction in the sacrum and occiput the CSF will not flowing optimally. The nervous system controls our entire body and can only function normally when our structures are balanced.
“Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases.” -Hippocrates (460-377 BC.)
Nutrition Response Testing (NRT)
NRT is a clinically proven, non-invasive system of analyzing the body to determine the underlying cause of ill or non-optimum health. Through its neurological reflexes, your body tells us what and how your nervous system is functioning. The nervous systems responsibility is to regulate the body’s functions for each and every organ, gland, joint, and muscles and will naturally provide all of the feedback needed to design a proper individualized treatment plan for you. The procedure is simple and direct. To detect disruption in the energy flows between parts and organs of the body, the analysis involves contacting your extended arm or leg with one hand and a specific reflex area with the other hand. If the tested reflex is stressed your nervous system will respond by causing your arm or leg to go weak or to drop. Once the underlying stress is corrected, the weak muscle response will no longer occur. There are no lab fees, no huge expensive machines, no drugs, and no surgery!
NRT, along with an analysis of your daily food intake, will give you the tools to begin to feel better and enjoy your life as it was intended, as healthy as possible!
Detox cleanses are a great way to set your body on the right path; the path to health. If you experience one of more of the following, you might be a consider doing a cleanse: minor aches and pains, fatigue and lethargy, swelling, skin problems/irritations, joint stiffness, excessive belly fat, dark circles or bags under your eyes, sinus congestion, irregular bowel movements, or bloating/puffiness/water retention. These symptoms are due to inflammation which, can be a natural healthy response to address challenges. However, chronic inflammation is not where we want to be! It will create a cascade of problems in our body. A detox cleanse using whole food supplementation and a refined, clean nutrition plan is designed to give your body a chance to function as it was intended to! It will give your cells the extra boost of nutrients to repair themselves and stimulate your immune system to start the healing process. It’s also very empowering to make healthy choices that you know are helping your mind and body! Especially when you can see and feel the wonderful changes happening!

As a holistic minded practitioner, Dr. Tammy became very in tune with the energy vibrations our bodies emit through her studies and practice of Craniosacral therapy as a massage therapist many years ago. Our energy vibrations are often a direct reflection of a person’s wellness or dis-ease.
Taking this very powerful reality, Dr Tammy offers 1 hour table sessions for individuals to relax and allow that energy field to balance in a safe and comfortable space. Dr Tammy’s intuition will guide her to where a person’s body might need some extra attention if there is a deficient present. The various techniques Dr Tammy has studied are: Craniosacral, Reiki and the sharing of Attunements.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST)
CST is a light touch (the weight of a dime in pressure) approach to release tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole health performance. CST influences the central nervous system, the spinal cord and the brain, with creating an intentional expansion and flow of the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) that incases the central nervous system. Craniosacral therapy is wonderful for migraines/headaches, chronic spinal pain, stress related disorders, motor-coordination impairments, infant/childhood disorders, brain/spinal cord injuries, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, TMD, scoliosis, central nervous system disorders, learning disabilities, ADHD, PTSD, and endocrine/hormone imbalances.
(Rei =Universal Divine, Ki= (Life Force or Life Energy) is a very powerful and beautiful type of energetic balancing. Reiki works with resetting our body’s autonomic nervous system into a relaxed state where we can process life’s challenges. The body is given an open forum to receive healing from within as the practitioner acts as a conduit to channel in the Universal energy which ignites the inner energetic healing and balancing our body’s naturally desire. There are multiple areas of light holds that are done in these treatments and it becomes an energetic dance between the giving person and the receiving person. It is embraced knowledge that energy exchanges become stronger the more balanced we become as individuals and there becomes a ripple effect from person to person.
Attunements are shared between the giving person and the receiving person. The work happens within the etheric energetic field that all living entities possess. Sharing an attunement is a type of exchange that happens where the giving person holds sacred space without “fixing” the receiving person. It is with acknowledgement that the work being done is each person’s own individual journey and the person giving person is providing the safe space and the loving capacity to let the receiving person heal when and wherever they need to at that time. Specific hand holds are done within the etheric field and the giver uses intuitional guidance combined with the knowledge of where the specific holds are to be.
With permission, Dr Tammy tends to combine these beautiful modalities together in a 1 hour session.
When I first met her, I had been dealing with chronic hip pain for over a year that I had seen a variety of doctors and healers about, none of whom had offered me any relief. Within just a few visits with Dr. Tammy, the constant pain was gone! I went from limping around everyday to only feeling the pain on occasion if I overdo it. One visit each month is enough to keep me aligned and feeling good!
I sought Dr. Stenberg out and she was able to reduce my discomfort and align my back. The results were almost immediate! While alleviating the discomfort was great, she also provided some proper body mechanic lifting insights that would lessen the risk of future aggravations. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Stenberg.
