We offer specific chiropractic adjustments to assist your body in correcting subluxations that interfere with the normal and healthy function of your nervous system. Our technique, Sacro Occipital Technique (SOT), is an indicator based system that offers the chiropractor a specific set of clinical findings and neurological indicators to allow them to safely and affectively adjust abnormal spinal and cranial dysfunctional patterns (subluxations). SOT offers both low force and standard chiropractic adjusting protocols to allow the chiropractor to tailor care to your specific needs. The diversity of the technique makes it applicable and safe for everyone from the pediatric patient to the elderly.
While we focus on reconstructive/corrective chiropractic care, we also accept patients with specific health issues including:
- Sports Injuries
- Acute Pain
- Visceral Dysfunction
- Extremity Problems
Our initial visit procedures include a comprehensive chiropractic evaluation to address your specific health concerns and determine how we can best help you. If necessary x-rays are also available at our office.
The first two years of a child's life are the most influential developmental period. This is the time when 90% of their neurological foundation and potential is being formed. At no other time in our lives is the expression and development of our human potential so greatly influenced.

Craniopathy is the art and science of restoring normal function to the cranial/dural-meningeal respiratory mechanism and the movement of cerebrospinal fluid. Since 80% of the central nervous system is located in the brain, correcting cranial imbalances are paramount to a total health care approach. SOT offers a very specific and safe system for restoring normal cranial functional mechanics and neurological balance. Many issues that are not responding to spinal care alone are facilitated by the addition of cranial adjusting procedures.
- Seizure Activity
- Sinus Issues
- Learning Disabilities
- Plagiocephaly, and other conditions can be helped with proper chiropractic spinal and cranial care
Dr. Rosen is a certified SOT craniopath and teaches chiropractic cranial adjusting nationally and internationally.
Ellen McMannis is a Certified and Licensed Massage Therapist, a graduate of the Florida School of Massage, a certified Yoga Instructor through the FLY Yoga School, a Wainwright Global Institute certified professional coach and a Libby Barnett Certified Reiki Healer.
Ellen's bodywork focuses on enhancing the connection between mind and body. She offers a relaxed, restorative approach using techniques such as: Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Trigger Point Therapy as well as more energetic techniques such as Reiki and Polarity Therapy.
Within the context of her massage Ellen incorporates some of the most up to date modalities to facilitate the healing process: including the Erchonia percussor and BioMat. Both of these modalities have been shown to aid in the relaxation of muscle tissue, easing tension in the body, increasing circulation and joint range of motion, reducing fascial restrictions, reducing stress on the joints and decreasing the buildup of scar tissue.
Her unique approach makes each session specifically tailored to the individual needs of the client. Ellen continues to study and explore her art to be able to bring the most up-to-date and effective methodology to those she works with, in order help guide them through their healing process.

Pelvic Constraint Technique (aka Webster Technique)
The Pelvic Constraint Technique (aka The Webster Technique) is a specific chiropractic adjustment protocol to help align the pelvic structures in the pregnant patient. By gently balancing the pelvic structures and supportive ligaments this technique can help the fetus move into a normal presentation in the uterus. It has been shown to be effective in assisting a normal fetal position with breech and other "abnormal" fetal presentations. This highly effective technique is safe and gentle and should be a first approach before considering more invasive methods. Both Dr. Erin and Martin Rosen are certified in the Webster Technique.

Dr. Martin Rosen has been adjusting animals for over 30 years and took the first animal adjusting certification class offered at Sherman College of Chiropractic in 1978. Both he and Dr. Erin Rosen specialize in domestic animals - dogs and cats - and work in coordination with several veterinarians and doggy day care centers in the Metro West area.
As a service to our active patients Dr. Erin Rosen offers a comprehensive nutritional analysis to help with issues that may need further supportive care. This specialized service is only available to our active patients and is an adjunct to regular chiropractic care. Dr. Erin Rosen has studied extensively in the field of nutrition and besides her DC degree has also completed the certification program from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN).

Exercise for Spinal Reconstructive Care
If necessary we offer consultation and exercise protocols specific to your spinal care needs. These exercises are used to compliment your regular chiropractic care and to facilitate optimal spinal function and reconstruction.
Allergy Testing and De-sensitization
In congruence with our regular chiropractic care program, we offer a specialized allergy evaluation and de-sensitization program to help your body reduce its reactivity or hypersensitivity to environmental and food irritants.
Unlike generic, over-the-counter orthotics, our Stabilizing Orthotics are individually designed for your unique postural problems – not just problems with your feet. We believe that correcting imbalances in your feet can help to properly align your spine and pelvis. There are a variety of orthotics depending on your specific activity level and needs.
