Stress

It may be hard to believe, but stress isn’t all bad. In fact, stress can be simply defined as the way the body responds to any real or perceived change to the environment. The causes of stress and the responses to stress can be physical, mental, and emotional.

So why is stress so...stressful? All organisms have the stress response, commonly referred to as “fight, flight, or freeze,” but most organisms quickly return to their baseline state after the threat has passed. Humans have a large prefrontal lobe that gives many advantages, but can also lead to worry, anxiety, and stress about potential changes in the environment. Since the brain can’t distinguish between what is real and what is imagined, the mechanism of “fight, flight, or freeze” can continue unchecked.

The fight, flight, or freeze response will help you run from a lion - or meet your deadline in time. But with constant deadlines come a prolonged increase in stress hormones like cortisol, and an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, anxiety, and other problems.

In today’s fast paced environment, the stressors are never-ending, and most people don’t give their bodies the time or the resources to rest and regenerate. This is negatively impacting health. It is estimated that 75-90% of all visits to doctors’ offices are for STRESS related complaints.

Stress is simply a response, and though you can’t always change the stressors, you can learn to change your responses.

How Can Dr. Kane Help You with Stress?

Physical Stress

Chiropractic: Pain relief is just one benefit of chiropractic. It also helps to remove nerve interference so that the brain and every cell, tissue, and organ in the body communicate better. When the nervous system functions optimally, you can move through life with greater ease.

Acupuncture: Known for its analgesic effects, acupuncture is remarkably effective for pain control.

Hypnosis: Find a simpler way to take control of your health. Most people find that hypnosis makes lifestyle changes such as exercising and improving their diet easier than ever before.

Nutrition: A healthy diet leads to more energy and decreases the level of inflammation in the body, ultimately decreasing pain levels over time. 

Emotional Stress

Chiropractic: Prolonged pain can be emotionally draining and exhausting. Chiropractic helps to relieve pain naturally.

Acupuncture: Stress relief is a common "side effect" of acupuncture treatments, and certain acupuncture points can lead to a release of stored emotions.

Hypnosis: The emotional stress that worries, fears, and addictions cause can be changed through hypnosis, while opening you up to a life of possibilities.

Nutrition: The foods that you eat affect your emotions in multiple ways, but one of the most direct connections is with serotonin levels. Serotonin affects mood, sleep, appetite, and pain levels, and about 95% of serotonin is created in the gut from the healthy foods you eat.

Mental Stress

Chiropractic: When your brain gets more blood and oxygen, you can think more clearly. Spinal adjustments and corrective exercises help to improve posture, allowing you to breathe more deeply and fully oxygenate all tissues in the body, including the brain.

Acupuncture: Every acupuncture point has a physical, emotional, and mental component.

Hypnosis: The thoughts you think can increase your stress levels. It is common for people to worry or obsess about their jobs, relationships, health, finances, and other issues. Hypnosis helps you to look at solutions rather than problems.

Nutrition: Mental clarity and focus improve when you give your body all the essential nutrients it needs to grow and repair.

Patient Reviews

Anna O.

“I wish I had gone in sooner! I threw out my back, and thought it would get better with a little TLC and time. A month later, I ran out of patience. My friend recommended Dr. Kane, so I scheduled an appointment. I couldn’t believe how much better I felt. I’m continuing to go for preventative care, and each time, she has given me helpful exercises and tips. The staff is great, too. In addition to running a great practice, they are all remarkably friendly and fun. Can’t recommend Dynamic enough!”

Ann L.

(Regarding Hypnosis) "Just broke into the next "decade" down on the scale today. Was aiming for it. Took a skirt back to seamstress yesterday - it was way too big. I was very pleased last weekend when we had company I didn't pull out all my old fav recipes to indulge like a crazy woman and make them do the same. We did healthy smoothies, light lunches, etc. I didn't sabotage myself or them. Now THAT is a breakthrough. Again, the one word that I feel separates this experience from all the other times, is a sense of calm and peace and being kind to myself. I don't seem to badger myself with trying to be perfect. Thanks again for your tips and expertise."

Pat G.

I went to Dr. Kane last week for hypnosis to help with my snacking and over-eating problems. It's amazing how much it has helped! It really works. Yes, I have been tempted to snack, but she gave me cues to help me overcome that old habit! Fantastic!

Charlie W.

“Thank you, Dr. Kane! I suffered with pain in the front of my thighs for about a year and a half. My primary care doctor sent me for a combination of x-rays, CT scans, and MRI's for both knees and both hips. Nothing was tested for my back. The final solution from my doctor was to "take Tylenol;" you can imagine how well that worked. When I received a letter saying you were going back into private practice, I called immediately to make an appointment. After the first treatment, I had immediate relief. Then the few follow-up treatments have kept me pain free. You have really changed my life. Thank you!”

Elizabeth T.

“None of the medicines I tried helped my sinus pain. But after my first acupuncture treatment from Dr. Kane, I had immediate relief that lasted for months!”

Sherri B.

“After three knee surgeries, and constant knee discomfort and swelling, I decided to give acupuncture a try. I was amazed at the benefits I received after only a few weeks of treatment from Dr. Kane. I had a noticeable improvement in the degree of flexibility and agility in my knee. I also had a substantial improvement in the amount of swelling in the area. I recommend acupuncture for anyone who has an area of discomfort!”

Mackenzie M.


“Dr. Kane is AMAZING. I had my first hypnosis session with her a few weeks ago and I am honestly blown away with the results. She is such a genuine and caring person and the effects of her care have been profound. I feel stronger and more powerful and have a deeper sense of ease and peace (exactly what I needed). If you are looking for a compassionate and skilled healer, look no further. Not only is she a great chiropractor, but combined with acupuncture, hypnosis, and her huge knowledge of nutrition and healing - she's the best!”

Natalie K.

“I did a hypnosis session with Dr. Kane and it was fantastic. I asked her for help with motivation with writing. It is a hobby of mine that I'd like to turn into something more, but always make excuses as to why I can't, in particular that I don't have time. After our session, not only have I made time to write daily, but my attitude toward time has transformed. Instead of feeling like time is constantly running out, I feel like time is my opportunity with which to do whatever I want.”

Kathy H.

“I am elated at how HEALTHY I feel on SHAPE ReClaimed! As exciting as is my WEIGHT LOSS, the elimination of the INFLAMMATION in my body is even more astonishing!!! For months before beginning SHAPE ReClaimed, I had been in pain, but within 3 days of being on this program, my pain completely disappeared!!! This is HUGE as my pain was very troublesome and worrisome. I always look forward to my appointments with Dr. Kane. She adjusts me with the ProAdjuster, which taps on my spine rather than "popping" it. I feel even more amazing after my adjustments!! Thank you, Dr. Kane!! I feel like a new woman and I could not have been as successful without your constant encouragement and expertise!!!”

Kristi D.


“Dr. Jennifer is an amazing chiropractor. So knowledgeable in so many areas of chiropractic care. I have been going to Dr. Jennifer for over 10 years. I love the ProAdjuster that she uses, which has really helped me. She was really able to give me relief from chronic neck and back issues. She also keeps in touch with me with reminders to come see her. She also does acupuncture and wellness. There's no one better.”

Carlysle G.


“Dr. Kane is unlike any doctor I've ever had. She always tries to do whatever she can to help with my journey. And she sincerely means it. She is compassionate, encouraging, and honest. Her energy is great and she truly helps make me realize the positive in any negative situation right away. So thankful to have her as my Shape practitioner and chiropractor!”

Dianne G.

“I came in to see Dr. Kane feeling very tense and fatigued. She did acupuncture, and I literally felt the energy flowing. I couldn't believe how great I felt!”

Stacy B.

“Cannot recommend Dr. Kane enough. Very caring and professional with a magic touch. She saved my weekend!!”

Alyssa C.


“I first came to Dr. Kane with a severe migraine. After one treatment I felt amazing and the migraine went away! Dr. Kane goes out of her way to ensure the health of her patients and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a chiropractor.”

Patty M.


“Dr. Kane's acupuncture treatment has helped tremendously with my allergies and headaches due to sinus pressure. I can't wait to visit her at her new location.”

Cliff P.


“I have been suffering with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) for eight years. I have been to many medical doctors and specialists and all I get is another drug to try. I have taken everything available and still no relief. After acupuncture treatments with Dr. Kane, my IBS has been absolutely no problem. While acupuncture cannot cure IBS, it has certainly normalized my system. This seems to have done the deed. I have been without symptoms for five months, and have had no flare-ups.”

Mary A.


“I love getting adjusted with the ProAdjuster! I've had back problems for most of my life, and finally learned that regular chiropractic adjustments keep me out of pain and functioning well. I knew how much chiropractic adjustments really helped me, but I admit that I somewhat dreaded them because of the twisting and cracking. But ever since I was referred to Dr. Kane and she adjusted me with the ProAdjuster, I actually look forward to my appointments!”

Violet L.

“Extremely caring. Dr. Kane treated my long-term allergies of more than 30 years. Now I am inhaler free!”

Brigid A.

“I have found such relief since trying acupuncture. After just one meeting with Dr. Kane, I felt a big difference in my sinuses. I met with her a few more times and have not experienced any sinus problems. I also spoke with her about how tired I felt all the time. Dr. Kane measured different points on my body and treated certain areas. I finally have my energy back. I am so surprised at how good I feel!”

Kaleen C.

“Dr. Kane has helped me so much with all of my joints. I have been treated by a chiropractor for many years, being adjusting in many different ways. I have found the method Dr. Kane uses, the ProAdjuster, to be pain free and superior to other methods.”

Monica H.


“Dr. Kane is the type of healer who has the ability to assist her patients in their healing journey to wellness due to her talent and variety of skills.......but also because she has walked her own healing journey with great triumph. What a blessing to have all these amazing gifts in a caring professional like Dr. Kane.”

Diane L.


“I love the ProAdjuster! It relaxes my muscles along with my adjustment. The two things together have really helped my chronic headaches!!”

Patti H.

“I think I may have had the best adjustment ever and I have been getting them since I was 12 years old! When I left your office I went water walking and walked faster and farther than I ever have. My friends could not keep up with me! I felt so good that if there had been more time I could have done 10 more laps! Last night was the same. Even just walking down the hall at work – I am walking faster and feeling more “freedom” in my hips and legs. It almost feels like my hips have been released and I can stretch out my legs further. Anyway, thank you for your kind and gentle care.”

CiCi B.


“The ProAdjuster has changed my life. I love the soft subtle tapping and no popping. My favorite area is on top of my head, the Chakra spot, it brings instant JOY to me. The way that Dr. Kane speaks into your life as you sit comfortably and have your adjustment. She has such a sweet and calming spirit. Thank you so much!”

Candy R.

“I met Dr. Jennifer Kane over a decade ago. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants natural treatment. Her adjustments are flawless, and I love the ProAdjuster! Dr. Kane treats her patients with kindness and compassion.”

Joyce W.

“My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Kane for several years. She is kind, compassionate and very thorough in both her chiropractic and acupuncture treatments. We would highly recommend Dr. Kane.”
