Dr. Purcaro is a 1984 graduate of Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, GA.
Chiropractic philosophy believes that blockage to the central nervous system from the muscular and skeletal structure of the body causes disease.
Dr. Purcaro is also a master of Shiatsu Massage. Dr. Purcaro attended the Ohashi Institute in NYC in 1979 and again in 1997 to study Shiatsu. Shiatsu is based on the premise that health compromises are based on blockage or congestion in the body. Shiatsu is based on acupuncture theory working along meridian channels that correspond to various organ systems in the body. Shiatsu employs acupressure in place of needles and is a form of massage. The results can be better ranges of movement, relaxation, and less stress. All these results can bring us closer to optimal health.
Dr. Purcaro has found that the combination of Chiropractic with Shiatsu in clients allows for a significant reduction in pain, increased flexibility and range of motion. The combination also promotes correct posture and skeletal alignment. Plus, it feels great! Shiatsu gently stretches parts of the body that do no normally get stretched, increasing blood, fluid and energy flow and relieving pain. Read more about what Shiatsu Massage can do for you here.
