STRESS is the #1 problem in our country...
But when we talk about stress, we are talking about 3 types of stress:
Emotional Stress: upsetting events, perceptions, thoughts, and emotions
Physical Stress: falls, accidents, lifting, bending, sitting all day, etc.
Chemical Stress: drugs, pollution, toxins, junk food, gases/fumes, etc.
We all know that physical, chemical, and emotional stress takes its toll on our health. According to the Center of Disease Control, 93% of all doctor visits are stress related! Stress can lead to cancer, heart attacks, emotional problems, chemical imbalances, and more! Additionally, anti-anxiety and anti-depressants are the number one prescribed medications, and unfortunately, suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in our country.
At The Family Wellness Center, we help people resolve their emotional, physical, and chemical stresses from their bodies and their lives! We take great pride in providing the finest services, education, and holistic chiropractic care to each and every patient. We have included information below about the different services offered in our holistic Plainview chiropractic office, but please call us at 516-822-8499 if you have any questions!
Here are the services we offer:
Also called NSA care or Network Chiropractic — to clear stress from the nervous system. Resolves stress from the body.
NSA is a very unique and gentle blend of highly advanced neurological work, energy work, and gentle chiropractic (no traditional “bone-cracking”) that clears out all the STRESS, tension, distortions, and traumas from the body and mind. It does so in a way that TEACHES your body how to keep it out on its own; and enables your body and mind to learn advanced wellness strategies. This means that your body and mind gradually learns how to adapt, cope, and even thrive in all levels of physical (work, sitting), chemical (drugs, pollution), and emotional stress!

Somato-Respiratory Integration (SRI) is a powerful hands-on tools that you can practice on your own to enhance your care and overall well-being. These simple exercises use breath, touch, movement, and focused attention to create profound changes in your health and life. When practiced over time, they give you the tools to shift your state from stress to peace in seconds.
The first 3 Stages of of SRI are especially helpful for people who are in pain, or who are feeling depressed, fatigued, helpless, or stuck in life. The next 4 Stages of SRI are powerful for people looking for a breakthrough or who are already in the process of making significant life-changes. The last 5 SRI Stages promote more awakened consciousness states, and are designed to help you more consistently access a greater depth of overall authenticity and well-being.
Here’s another way to understand SRI exercises. Network Chiropractic Care can be thought of as a body-mind system because it goes through your body to also help make changes in your mind. By utilizing SRI the mind focus on access to peace and the present moment; thereby helping us to shift our internal focus and access more healthy options on conscious and unconscious levels.
Although SRI can be used by itself, when Network Chiropractic Care and SRI are practiced together, they create a synergistic effect that can dramatically improve your overall results and experience in care
We highly recommend that everyone under Network Chiropractic Care consider adding an SRI session 2 times per month. While not mandatory for progress, you’ll find that it will help you to move forward with more ease and grace. SRI sessions are done privately in between regular adjusting times (see the front desk to schedule).
This is done to help people respond authentically to their life stresses (and not react). It helps resolve stress from your life.
All human beings are endowed with our 5 senses, intuition and an ability to instinctively know what is good for them and what is not on physical, chemical, emotional, and spiritual levels. The problem is that we were never taught to listen to ourselves or our bodies. In fact, we were taught to ignore many of our inner and outer wants and needs. Therefore, most of us live lives of hopes and dreams that are never really fulfilled; and so our lives and our health suffer. We never learned how to truly meet our own needs authentically and be able to live free to have happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.
Integrated with your NSA Care we will help you learn how to regain your lost ability to listen to yourself and your body in a way that everyone wins. We will help you to know what is right for you and what is not in your physical , chemical, and emotional life; and then how to make the life changes that you need to really live free and healthy ; and in a way that is in alignment with your own desires, ethics and values. Wellness Coaching is an extraordinary addition to your Network Chiropractic care. Your Network care improves your physical and mental health and well-being; while the Wellness Coaching empowers you to freely make the changes that you need to make to create the life that you want and need.
When we learn to do this we live with a lot more peace, confidence, joy, and passion. When we learn to listen to our bodies and our inner selves and make the necessary changes, not only does our body heal, but so does our life. Now you have complete healing for your BODY, MIND, and SPIRIT; your health begins to soar and you will learn to stay well for a lifetime!
Wellness Coaching can also be done in private individual sessions to help your care go faster or to help you move through any emotional or life challenges you may be facing.
Getting and staying healthy is all about learning how to integrate and maintain lifestyle habits that will give us the kind of life and well-being that we want on physical, chemical, and emotional levels. That is, we need to learn about what is available to us and how to apply it to our daily lives.
At The Family Wellness Center we offer many ongoing educational classes and workshop programs to help our patients live better lives, heal faster, and stay healthy for a lifetime. Some of the programs and classes we offer are:

Most people were not trained medically and so are at the mercy of what one particular healthcare specialist knows, and/or what the healthcare establishment deems appropriate. They are required to make decisions without really understanding what is happening in their bodies or what their options really are. We believe that this is not right.
This service is where we will be your personal healthcare consultant to help you make better healthcare and treatment decisions with all your doctors for yourself and your family. No strings attached!
With this service we help people with understanding their condition(s); understanding what their medical and/or holistic practitioners are telling them; understanding how the body works; and help them make informed decisions regarding any medical and holistic procedures and treatments; while educating them on other options available.
As the Chinese proverb says, “If we give you a fish, you eat for a day. But if we teach you to fish, you eat for a lifetime.” This is our goal!...so that you can take the best care of yourself that you can for years to come.
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spine and nervous system health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Michael Berlin can help reveal important health information, and show people how stress is affecting their health and well-being. In order to help the Plainview community, we provide screenings at patients' homes for their friends and family, area malls, community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 516-822-8499 to arrange a screening at your home, event or workplace.
