The "Be Healthy" 60-day challenge is not another fad diet or gym program. We are changing lives and creating long term healthy habits that will be in place long after the 60 days end. Archetype is here to provide a structure that is conducive to results. Learn about how we have implemented this program in the past and how we can help you turn your health dreams into a reality.
Physical movement is a child's first language, and it is through movement that they first start to explore the world and to gain control over their body. It is the foundation in which learning is built upon. If this foundation is rocky or not maintained, it will play a role in their abilities to learn and retain information well.
Ever wonder why your neck muscles and traps are so tight? Why your low back hurts when you lift? The very thing you do without thinking about might be the problem. Breathing is so important, without it you can’t live and chances are you are doing it all wrong. We are born and conditioned to breathe using our diaphragm, better known as the muscle of breathe.
You swim, bike, run, squat, press, pull, and all the other fitness things you have been trained to do. You train your muscles to keep you strong for a long and happy life, but what happens when the deeper stuff on which those muscles rely breaks down?
Upright posture is complex and maintained mainly by postural reflexes in the midbrain that utilize sensory input from the visual, proprioceptive, and vestibular systems.
We have all been conditioned that proper warm-up is to just go for a run, do something to warm up the "core temp" before any activity. Even as a younger individual before baseball or soccer it was always "understood" we either had to throw at a 30-50 percent effort to warm up the arm or run laps to get the legs warmed up.
We are a natural healthcare facility that is solely focused on getting you in the best health of your life. We utilize all natural methods to get you well. One of the most powerful healing methods is movement. Health begins at pelvic floor and core stabilization. Moving to advanced movements, lifting heavy weight or pushing your endurance to quickly can lead to a lifetime of injury and dysfunction and ultimately compromised quality of health.
Retained primitive reflexes are often thought of as developmental problems in kids. But kids grow up, and integrated reflexes have side effects in adults, too. In adults, they can affect anything and everything from posture and balance to focus and energy. So, how do primitive reflexes affect energy levels in adults?
Your brain is meant to mature to a specific state that allows you to be independent of other humans. This “maturity” is called primitive reflex integration(@drrobertmelillo method). If primitive reflex integration doesn’t happen in the first 18 months of life, it will inhibit normal physiology in the brain and body.
If you don’t sleep, you don’t repair, and if don’t repair you begin to break down. Everyone needs sleep and time to rebuild. The modern world we live in constantly breaks us down and the one reprieve from this is quality sleep. Here are some resources to help you sleep better and live your best life.
If you have ever had an injury of any kind, you know from experience how annoying and unwanted they are. They always seem to come at the wrong time, or right before a big event, you have been training for. The good thing is you can work through them as well as educate yourself on how to prevent it from happening again.
Without proactively addressing the core tenets of the Five Foundations of Health, it is easy to slip into the modern, American way of managing symptoms. This method has left us sick, in pain, and worn out. At Archetype, we believe that addressing these Five Foundations of Health will not only help us feel better, but allow us to live well.
Archetype was built from the need of a facility that not only fixed your symptoms you are experiencing but then educated you on how to never let it happen again. Usually weakness is the key to solving your original symptoms. We as a culture sit way to many hours in the day and it's destroying our bodies.
At Archetype we consistently strive for best natural healthcare practices for our patients and community. For 10 years we have helped 1000's of people through chiropractic but in January 2020 we morphed into a 1 stop shop natural health and performance clinic. We now offer strength, mobility, and altitude classes. We exist to bring the public from a state of dysfunction to function to performance. We want to see you thrive and live the highest quality of life possible.
Here at Archetype, we have many services that are available for our patients that aid in or assist with the chiropractic adjustment. Today I will be talking a little bit about cupping, its benefits, what to expect, and what is going on when you are getting cupped during an appointment.
Here at Archetype, we strive to get you up and moving regardless of your fitness level because it’s important for your body as well as your mind to be able to move and adapt. We stress the importance of getting outside and finding an activity you enjoy! We at Archetype would love the opportunity to help you reach your next goal, or better yet, be the best version of yourself.
There is a common misconception that breathing during exercise is simply inhaling through the nose and exhaling through the mouth. While in its most basic essence this is true, there is much more to expand upon regarding this subject.
Have you ever been in a hurry and stepped off a curb wrong, rolled an ankle and had some discomfort with a minor limp for a day or two? Ankle sprains are common for all people, not just athletes. Here at Archetype, we deal with all types of injuries, big and small, including the ankle sprain.
Where do you go for your information? In today's society it is just as easy to find misinformation as it is to find reliable information. Here at Archetype, we are dedicated to providing you with the correct information to help you become the best and healthiest version of yourself.
Toxins are all around us. It’s important that each day we try and eliminate our exposure as much as possible. Our bodies are extremely resilient in fighting off and filtering what we are exposed to daily. There are several things that we can do each day to help our bodies stay as healthy and strong. Let’s look at eliminating toxins and what things we can do to help limit our exposure
Part of our five foundations at Archetype we try to educate our patients on elimination of toxins, and although we can’t limit all toxins, we can educate ourselves to have a healthier, cleaner lifestyle. Let’s look at a chemical that in the past has been used by many companies to transport food as well as serve food in and see how we can eliminate this chemical from our everyday life. This chemical is known as polystyrene or by its trade marked name Styrofoam.

Thank You for reading :)
At Archetype foundations two and four talk about your brain-body connection and movement with their importance in our day to day lives. Core stabilization as well as pelvic floor activation cover both topics. In this blog post we touch base on the importance of pelvic neutral, core strength, and what pelvic floor engagement means and how it has become a core staple around the office when communicating to our patients.
We get this question on a regular basis. Modern feet have been shoved in shoes and become almost inept. We wonder why plantar fasciitis shows up, why foot pain shows up, and many other dysfunctions in the foot and posterior chain. We as a modern society need to understand shoes serve a minimal purpose of fashion and aesthetics. Most shoes are not functional and literally prep you to fall as you age by crowding your toes and dumbing down the neurology of sensation.
