Sleep is essential for healing.
When you are experiencing stress and increased cortisol levels, it will often disrupt your sleep.
This happens because the hormones cortisol and melatonin are inversely related — as one increases, the other decreases.
Improvement in sleep quality, ability to fall asleep easier, being able to sleep for longer, and waking up feeling refreshed and revitalized, – rather than groggy and exhausted – are some of the most common things we hear from all ages when our patients commit to restorative brain-based chiropractic care!
We are not surprised by this at all.
With each gentle adjustment, we are engaging your parasympathetic nervous system. This allows your body to go into the much needed ‘rest and digest’ mode and decreases cortisol levels.
We truly love helping your body balance and heal, and help you understand why and how!
How has your sleep been these days?
