We tailor how we adjust you based on number of variables such as your age, body type, clinical factors etc… We always aim to be as gentle as possible. The approaches we use are based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:

Thompson Technique

Thompson Technique uses a special table with several segments called drop-pieces.  The drop pieces allow a quick, small impulse when you are adjusted. For many people this makes it more comfortable.  Cavitation, or “popping”, of the joint typically does not occur. The majority of the adjustments are performed with the client lying face down.


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»


Dysfunction where the sacrum joins the pelvis (hip) can be quite common during the course of pregnancy. read more»


If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let Mark Lacey & Julie Gray know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
