Geometry of the Body

Unlocking the Sacredness Inside of Us

What is BGI?

BGI is a chiropractic approach based on the geometry of the human body. We apply the scientific understanding of quantum physics to health and healing. Knowing that the body is made of an intricate web of physical and energetic connections, allows us to address the person in a truly holistic approach. Combining this understanding with the use of light touches and gentle structural adjustments, the body is guided to release tension patterns. Just as tension patterns in your system accumulate bit by bit, so, too, will receiving regular chiropractic adjustments gradually and progressively release that stored tension. With each adjustment your system becomes better able to adapt, self-correct and heal.

Releasing old patterns from the body facilitates your ability to be present to what is happening now, the input that is currently being presented to us in the form of physical, chemical, emotional and mental stimuli, rather than reacting based on patterns related to past events. Getting adjusted facilitates your body’s ease and flow and thus your progression toward health and wellness.

BGI  in More Depth...

Before the definition of Bio-Geometric Integration can make sense, you must know what a subluxation is.  In general, a subluxation is the interference of the optimal expression of your system resulting from physical, biochemical, or psychological distress.  The intention of chiropractic is to release those interferences in order to allow better expression of your body’s innate intelligence and, subsequently, promote wellness.

Discovered and developed by Dr. Sue Brown, D.C., Bio-Geometric Integration (BGI) is an integrative approach to the science, philosophy, and art of chiropractic.  BGI provides chiropractors with a greater understanding of the body’s innate geometry and connectivity, enabling them to more effectively release subluxations and assess the effectiveness of each adjustment.

Traditionally in chiropractic the subluxation is viewed strictly in terms of compression or stretching on the nerves and spinal cord by a misaligned vertebra.  BGI augments that understanding to incorporate not only the spine and nervous system, but also the body’s soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, organs, glands), and energetic system.  This expanded definition is of critical importance, as quantum physics has taught us that all matter is, in fact, comprised of energy.

Understanding the body’s energetic system allows us to better understand the causes and purposes of subluxations. Energy is information that moves; it literally vibrates.  The tone and frequency of the vibration determines the message.  Each day, your body is subject to an enormous array of energetic experiences, which affect it on physical, chemical, mental and emotional levels.  Each new experience must be integrated into your body in a manner that’s harmonious with its own tone and frequency.  When the particular vibration of an experience is discordant with your body, you’re  unable to integrate it immediately.  The experience is then stored by your body until you are better able to deal with it. 

That is the essence of a subluxation.  Subluxation, therefore, is a gift.  It is the manifestation of an unintegrated experience, and the doorway in for healing from that experience.  A subluxation here or there may go unnoticed by you, but when you allow them to stack up unattended, you create fertile ground for dis-ease. 

Chiropractic adjustments allow the energy from a subluxation to be released and integrated into your body.  BGI enables the doctor of chiropractic to utilize knowledge of the body’s innate geometry to appropriately gauge the full effect of a subluxation, allowing it to be released as an integrated whole.  Understanding the geometry also allows your chiropractor to assess and prioritize all your subluxation patterns, so that each may be attended to at the best time for your body, creating maximum opportunity for self-healing and memory in your body. Because as your chiropractor we want to see you truly healing, and creating changes that last, not being dependent on the adjustments for change.

At Love Life Chiropractic, we refer to you as a participant rather than a patient because we know that all healing comes from within the body.  The purpose of chiropractic care is to guide and allow healing, not instill it. Once you become aware of how chiropractors use BGI to approach this process, you are able to truly participate in your care.  Not just while you’re on the adjusting table, but as you make the choices that create each day, and ultimately, your own state of wellness.

Getting Out Old Stored Patterns

Over time... the below picture is a perfect example of how the spine and body's geometry can distort with stored stress patterns. You can imagine if someone is functioning with this kind of distortion, how much their body has to work extra hard to create what "normal" feels like to them? These patterns also go through our organ systems causing a variety of symptoms and dis-ease processes that can usually be healed as the stress patterns start to let go.

The symptoms that our body shows us usually don't happen over night. It takes time and stress to overwhelm us and then we start to lock down. Just like it didn't happen overnight, even though many people feel fantastic after only one adjustment... it still takes time for these patterns to unwind and permanant, healthy change is made.
