What does vitalistic chiropractic mean?
At Chiropractic Lounge Munich we follow the philosophy of vitalistic chiropractic. This means we view the human being as a self-healing and self-organizing organism. We do not consider ourselves or the treatment as the healing power, but the inherent self-healing power (also called innate) of all of us as the factor for recovery.
