What is Swiping and Why Do It?
Dr. Luke Mattison, a Master Full Motion Chiropractor at Human Garage, comes from a family of chiropractors. In fact, he received his first adjustment at only a few weeks old. Dr. Luke uses his knowledge of the intricate connections in the body to realign it from head to toe, helping to reverse wear and tear that builds up over time. He focuses on addressing that wear and tear before it manifests as pain.
Many times, the wear and tear manifests first as neurological, or nervous system, fatigue. Unexpected weakness in a handshake is one example that Dr. Luke uses as a tell-tale sign of nervous system fatigue. Self-care, in the form of “swiping,” can be used to re-invigorate the nervous system and restore balance.
In this video, Dr. Luke demonstrates the swiping technique and the order in which to progress through muscle groups for a full-body re-balancing and re-invigoration.
