Tranquility’s MASSAGE CLUB

November 3, 2008

CLIENTS ARE WANTING MASSAGES TO REDUCE STRESS, RELIEVE MUSCLE TENSION, AND REDUCE BACK PAIN! I want you to know, I have been listening!

Tranquility Chiropractic Studio is now offering a MASSAGE CLUB!!! I am excited to announce, starting this month, we are offering our first massage club membership for $99.00.  Members will receive TWO one-hour massages per month or FOUR half-hour massages per month!

The Benefits Of Massage
The benefits of massage as a complement to chiropractic care are plentiful!  Massage can:

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating the flow of lymph—your body’s natural defense system.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of your body’s largest organ—your skin.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.

Call Tranquility Chiropractic Studio today to learn more about our massage club!  512-788-3366

Reception at Tranquility Chiropractic Studio!

October 15, 2008

This month is National Chiropractic Month, and I want to CELEBRATE!  Please join me on Saturday, October 25th from 2-4PM, at Tranquility Chiropractic Studio located at 11673 Jollyville Road, Suite 202.  I will be hosting a reception with snacks and drinks for everyone. All existing patients will receive a complementary adjustment, as an added bonus.

I want you all to know that I am so happy to be a Doctor of Chiropractic! Treating all of my patients has been an incredible experience, both professionally and personally. In the last seven months, I have given hundreds of complementary massages, ten brown bag lunches, countless calls to businesses, complementary care to pastors….I’ve even passed out fliers door-to-door. Yikes….If only I could convince myself that soliciting was fun! LOL!

It my goal to make Tranquility Chiropractic Studio a REFERRAL PRACTICE- one where my patients share what chiropractic care has done to improve their quality of life! No one knows better than the patients at Tranquility about the benefits of chiropractic and the high quality of care given to everyone who walks in the door!

Did you know?

  • Chiropractic is the fastest-growing and second-largest primary health care profession.
  • Doctors of Chiropractic provide effective, low-cost health care for a wide range of conditions.
  • Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work.
  • Experts estimate as many as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in our lives.
  • Americans spend at least $50 Billion each year on back pain-and that’s just for the more easily identified costs.

My wish is that all chiropractic patients would share their chiropractic success stories with everyone! It only takes a few minutes to tell your co-worker, hair dresser, family physician, mail carrier, and anyone else what chiropractic care has done and can do! Everyone deserves to live pain-free, tension-free, and stress-free!  The whole world deserves to know about CHIROPRACTIC!!!

Thanks for making a difference,

Dr. Misty Funk

October is National Chiropractic Month!

Small Changes Can Have Big Impact on Overall Health

Says American Chiropractic Association

This October, during National Chiropractic Month, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is encouraging families to make simple changes in an effort to improve their overall health and well-being.

“Making small consistent changes are the keys to achieving better health,” says Dr. Misty Funk of Tranquility Chiropractic Studio. “Chiropractic, because of its focus on prevention, can play an integral role in helping Americans improve their health.”

Doctors of chiropractic are trained and licensed to serve as primary care doctors, Dr. Funk notes. “They stress preventive protocols such as, dietary and nutritional counseling, exercise, rehabilitation and ergonomics.”

Dr. Funk and ACA recommend the following health tips.

  • Exercise daily
  • Control your weight
  • Commit to proper nutrition
  • Avoid smoking or other tobacco products
  • Use alcohol in moderation
  • Control any chronic diseases or disorders (including high blood pressure, diabetes, or high levels of cholesterol).

Doctors of chiropractic provide drug-free, non-invasive treatment options for many types of pain and inflammation. For example, chronic back pain, neck pain, joint pain and headaches can often be reduced with the appropriate combination of chiropractic manipulation, rehabilitative exercises and lifestyle counseling – all of which are offered by doctors of chiropractic in a patient’s personalized treatment plan.

“Consumers also should know that chiropractic treatment is a covered benefit in virtually all traditional insurance policies,” adds Dr. Funk. “As many as 87 percent of all insured American workers have coverage for chiropractic services in their existing health care plans.”

A significant amount of evidence has shown that the use of chiropractic care for certain conditions can be more effective than traditional medical care, with many patients feeling improvement shortly after their first chiropractic visit.

This October, during National Chiropractic Month, talk with a doctor of chiropractic about ways you can achieve better health. “Doctors of chiropractic believe that prevention is the key to health and wellness. Discover how treatment by your local doctor of chiropractic can not only improve your spinal health, but also start you on the road to wellness.”

Dr. Funk is working in collaboration with the American Chiropractic Association to observe National Chiropractic Month. For more information on chiropractic or any of the tips mentioned above please contact Dr. Funk at (512) 788-3366 or visit the ACA Web site: http://www.ACAtoday.org.

When Is It Time To Visit The Chiropractor?

August 27, 2008

I had a patient come in yesterday that had been experiencing upper back pain and low back pain for months.  As we went through her history, I jotted down notes that would help me determine her diagnosis and the most effective treatment.  As I finished up her history, she stated “I really don’t know if I need to be here.  I mean….I don’t think that I am that bad of.  I could probably could take care of this on my own.” I was stunned…. She had just describing her signs and symptoms, and I could clearly see she needed to be in my office, and I have no doubt that she could benefit from therapeutic massage and chiropractic care.  But she- like so many other patients- was asking the age-old question, “When is it time to visit the chiropractor?”

She definitely made me think….

How do patients decide when they need to make a visit to their chiropractor? Since no one teaches us a class in school called “Go visit the doctor when…”, many people aren’t sure when to seek medical attention.  Here are some tips to know when to visit your chiropractor!

You should visit your chiropractor if you are experiencing…

  1. Back pain or neck pain last more than three days.
  2. Reoccurring headaches that are aggravated by stress and neck or shoulder tension.
  3. Pain that is radiating (or moving) away from the point of pain (IE. Sciatica pain)
  4. You have reduced range of motion of the neck or back, especially when it’s caused by muscle spasms and pain.
  5. Difficulty sleeping at night due to headaches, neck and back pain.

Back pain and headaches are NOT NORMAL, and you shouldn’t just live with the pain. So many of us are programmed to ignore pain.  I have a lot of patients who come to get treatment for one thing, and during the history and examination, I find that they have been living with another pain for years.  They live with it because they have reached a point where they think that it is normal!  It’s not!

Working every day to take a little stress out of your world!
