Complete Guide To Alternative Health in St. Lawrence County – Part One

A lot of progress is being made in terms of access to healthcare in the North Country, but hospitals, clinics and health centers aren’t the only health and wellness options available.

Natural, holistic, and alternative healing modalities are strong and effective practices that help support the body, mind, and spirit, by bringing you into balance.

These modalities are not meant to replace medical treatment or advice, they are meant to work in collaboration with the traditional medical community, encouraging health and wellness.

There are a lot of alternative and complementary healing modalities available here in St. Lawrence County. We’ll be covering this blog post in two parts and have tried to find practitioners for each modality. If we’ve inadvertently left someone off the list, please contact us so we can add them!

Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic medicine focuses on the relationship between the body’s skeleton, muscles, and nerves with the intention that the body has the ability to heal itself if given proper support. It is a hands-on modality using manual manipulation of the spine to improve health.
