Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley is well known for above average hospitals with exceptional trauma units as awell as doctors and specialists in many fields, cancer research facilities and a major scientific lab known as JPL among its other selling points.
Also within our reach is the Pasadena Rehabilitation Institute (PRI) at 1017 South Fair Oaks.
Within these healing walls works a quiet, kind and extremely gifted Chiropractor, Nazee Rofagha, DC, CEAS at the Family Chiropractic Wellness Center.
A Doctor of Chiropractic since 1995, Nazee Rofagha (we call her Dr. Nazee), truly has a gift of healing not only in her hands but her heart.
Ever wanting to find new ways to improve on therapy for her patients, Dr. Rofagha contunues that eternal quest and seems to have an insatiatable thirst for knowledge in non-invasive pain relief and techniques.
The popular and charistmatic chiropractor recently became aware of a new technique for pain and stress relief know as NRCT ( Neurologic Relief Centers Technique ) which can release the tension in the meninges and subsequently releasing irritation to the nerves which are ultimately causing the brain to tell you where the pain is.
The essence of the program works with the CSF (Cerebral Spinal Fluid).
According to literature published by NRCT “the vast majority of health problems other than infectious diseases could be stress and neurological in nature.”
Having had more than my fair share of pain in recent years, this reporter decided to see for himself if, in fact, this NRCT might be an answer I was looking for.
After my initial examination/consultation Dr. Nazee asked me what my pain scale was (ie 1-10) it was about 5 this particular morning. The doctor placed her hands carefully on my neck and used some pressure in an effort to relieve some leg/knee pain I had been experiencing.
The results were actually more profound than I initially thought.
I can, without reservation, say I could efforlessly walk down the stairs from her office to my car where I had a few minutes earlier used the elevator over the stairs due to the pain. I also felt more alert which is intersting as I only had one cup of coffee this given morning and not a particularly great sleep the previous night.
The NRCT is non invasive and many people such as myself respond immediately or within a short period of time.
Some of the more common maladies that seem to respond to NRCT air Fibromyalgia, numbness, migraines headaches, forgettfullness, burning senstaions, insomnia and other pain anywhere in the body including the hands and feet.
