ChiroWorks LLC in Glastonbury is going the distance to ensure wellness; understanding

Popping, cracking; that’s what comes to mind when most people think of chiropractic. Dr. Doug Stranko, Owner of ChiroWorks says “there is no popping, twisting or cracking with his technique.” Dr. Stranko uses a method of chiropractic known as Activator Method Chiropractic Technique or AMCT for short. The adjustments done in AMCT are “very precise and gentle” says Stranko adding that “(AMCT) is a comprehensive analysis used to determine proper mechanics of the entire musculoskeletal system.” When asked about some of the challenges ChiroWorks faces Stranko explained that “unfortunately, most people think of chiropractors as back doctors. While it's correct we deal with the spine, our true focus is to establish and maintain the integrity of the nerve system.” To overcome this ChiroWorks has taken a position to not only educate the public with weekly seminars, but also provide other onsite services such as massage therapy. Recently, ChiroWorks has become host to licensed massage therapist Sara Harford and her business “Your Inner Om”. When asked about the impact of “Your Inner Om” Stanko replied “Sarah Harford has been an outstanding addition to our office. Her knowledge, experience, and energy adds a whole other realm of service and care for the patients / clients.” When asked about who she services the most Harford who brings over 10 years of therapeutic massage experience to the table replied “I often work with women who are caring for aging parents, special needs children, or spouses who are ill. They have spent so much time and energy caring for others, often for years without a break, and are feeling the effects of that chronic, prolonged stress.” Harford feels that “The nurturing style of therapeutic massage I’ve developed over the past ten years specifically targets areas of tension in the body” which let’s “people walk away with a renewed sense of peace and rejuvenation that’s so needed for them to continue caring for their loved one.”

ChiroWorks and Your Inner Om are also members of the Greater Hartford Holistic Chamber of Commerce and will be hosting Holistic Business After Hours at 7:00 PM on March 3rd. When asked about the event, Chamber President and Vice President Amy Labossiere and Tim Moore both felt that “if you’re looking to connect with the area’s top holistic and alternative medicine professionals, or just meet some new people Holistic Business Hours will be the place to be.”
