Our unique classes, developed by Dr. Chris Ryan, blend multiple modalities, including chiropractic rehabilitation, postural awareness, breath work, relaxation techniques and yoga sequencing. Our introductory class takes place over 8 weeks, meeting 1 time per week for 90 minutes.
Students gain a deeper understanding of how the body functions; how to properly stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak muscles; postural awareness to prevent injuries; breath work to elicit the relaxation response; stress reduction techniques; and more.
Our Wellness Program, also developed by Dr. Chris Ryan, is a course that takes students on a never-ending journey to wellness. Much like all of our classes, the foundation is in the education provided. We believe in providing patients and students with the science behind not only the mechanics of the physical body, but also the science behind the mind/body connection. Broadening awareness into how our own thoughts, emotions, reactions, etc. affect our overall well-being.
Dr. Chris originally designed the Wellness Program for businesses, to provide employers and employees stress reduction techniques through mindfulness training and postural awareness to prevent injuries in the workplace. The program has since further developed into a youth program, which teaches teens and young adults healthy, mindful ways to deal with stress, anxiety, depression and everyday life. We have teamed up with Seneca County Workforce Development and other agencies to implement our wellness program into current youth programs within the county.
