Naprapathy, Naprapathy has been described as a synthesis between massage therapy and chiropractic due to its unique emphasis upon treating both soft tissue (ligaments, tendons, and muscles) as well as the vertebrae of the spine.Naprapathic treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment to ascertain the patient's medical case history. A spinal examination follows in order to identify the precise areas of the anatomy requiring treatment. Common conditions treated by Naprapathy include both chronic and acute problems such as back pain, stiff neck, whiplash, sports injuries, trauma, arthritis, migraines, carpel tunnel syndrome, TMJ dysfunction, herniated discs, bursitis, tendonitis, fibromyalgia, and sciatica. Treatment with Naprapathy is based upon applying a system of gentle manual manipulations to the patient's body in order to stretch, align and relieve the afflicted connective tissues causing the ailment. Such therapy removes interference to nerves, blood vessels, and lymphatic channels, facilitates structural alignment, fosters improved motion, and releases tension. As a result, pain relief and healing are promoted in a natural, non-surgical, drug-free way. Developed in Japan by Mikao Usui, Reiki is a psycho-physiological practice used as a complementary therapy in the treatment of disease. Reiki utilizes the flow of the life-force or vital energy (called Ki in Japanese) to promote the body's own natural healing. Walker is a certified Reiki Master.Dr. Walker's understanding of Ki and its usage is complemented by his achievements in the martial arts. A practitioner with over 30 years of experience, Dr. Walker is a sensei of Aikido and a sifu in Ch'uan Fa Kung Fu.
