Not every chiropractor uses the same type of technique for adjusting the spine. Dr. Cseszko specializes in gentle chiropractic adjustments, as well as traditional chiropractic techniques.
Chiropractic Gets to the Root of the Problem
Patients suffer from a variety of symptoms. The chiropractor’s job is to find the underlying condition which is most likely causing the symptoms. Like a detective collecting clues at the scene of a crime, we begin with a detailed examination of your health history. By using the latest chiropractic diagnostic tools available and extensive questionnaires we evaluate exactly how you arrived at your current health status. The chiropractor will tell you what is causing your condition, and provide you with insight in order to make the transition from feeling less well to feeling fantastic as quickly as possible.
Whether you suffer from low back pain, insomnia, lack of energy and fatigue or difficulty with weight loss, we don’t wait until you get sick before addressing the core health issue. Any good chiropractor knows that maintaining vitality through prevention is key, and we will teach you how to incorporate this chiropractic principle into your life. The most cost-effective way to achieve health is to maintain it. Once you have reached your goal, we will help you stay there so you’ll feel better for good! So, if you are looking for a caring, holistic chiropractor in St. Petersburg, FL, search no further.
Looking for a St. Petersburg Chiropractor Who Offers a Variety of Services?
We offer a unique service to our St. Petersburg patient base. Here is how we do it:
- Gentle Chiropractic: We use gentle chiropractic adjustments to address any external or structural imbalances relating to the skeletal system.
- Medical Acupuncture: Medical acupuncture is used to restore internal balance to organ systems which may have become over-burdened. Acupuncture can enhance the results of chiropractic care and can also be a stand-alone treatment, when chiropractic adjustments are not part of the treatment plan.
- Clinical Nutrition: Just as no two fingerprints are ever alike, no two persons have the same nutritional needs. We provide you with the exact dosage of vitamins and minerals your body needs in order to function optimally. Even mild nutritional deficiencies can cause health problems and can also prevent chiropractic adjustments from holding properly.
- Detoxification through Homeopathy: We identify toxins which prevent your body from becoming healthy. This can include isolating allergens from food or drink sources, determining potential sensitivities to air pollutants, or exposure to electromagnetic radiation. Homeopathy is used to desensitize your body to environmentally toxic agents.
Following an in-depth analysis, the chiropractor will discuss all findings with you in a one-on-one consultation. At that time, a plan of care will be determined which will include the anticipated cost and length of treatment. Health is a journey with no unrealistic goals, only unrealistic time frames.
We applaud you for taking responsibility for your health and look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

How Does Gentle Chiropractic Work?
The skeleton is like the foundation of a building, if the concrete is poured wrong, the building will be unlevel. This means that all the structures contained in your house will sit crooked on your floor. What happens in Chiropractic is similar; if the foundation created by your skeletal frame is not in proper alignment then the organs contained inside that framework will not function properly. Gentle chiropractic adjustments work by realigning the skeletal frame.
The hard spine has delicate nerves that travel in between the vertebrae of your spine. When the bones of the spine are not aligned properly, these soft nerves can get compressed, which causes interference with the nerves. This interference prevents normal communication between the and the organs of the body and can cause abnormal function.
Just think of this miscommunication as static interference and you will have a good idea of how your body will have difficulty operating under these conditions. Gradual deterioration of your health occurs as a result of long term miscommunication (or static interference) between the brain and all the organs in your body.
The brain regulates all the activities which occur in your body. It needs to organize the cells into tissues, then the tissues collect and form organs, and organs work together to producing systems like the immune system. All of these cells, tissues, and organs must act in harmony to keep you healthy.
Just like the conductor of an orchestra, the brain is responsible for harmony in your body, and it does this by using a complex information superhighway which is your spinal cord. The spinal cord and its highly specialized network of soft nerves are protected and housed in your vertebral column.
Chiropractic gives the brain the ability to communicate normally with the body’s immune system. Medical researches now know that the immune cells actually receive messages from the nervous system and operate in partnership with the nerves to improve health. Therefore, keeping the spine healthy with gentle chiropractic adjustments should be high on your list of health priorities if you want to assist your body in preventing everything from colds to cancer, as the immune system plays an important role in fighting viruses as well as mutated cells.
When spinal bones choke or chafe nearby nerves, vital communications between your brain and your body begin to shut down. This occurs whether you actually feel pain or not, signals can become distorted or exaggerated from the resulting nerve irritation. Nerve messages traveling to and from the brain become weak and faint, and your brain loses touch with affected cells, tissues and organs. Gentle spinal adjustments keep the nerve superhighway clear of static interference. When the foggy static of miscommunication is eliminated, your body begins to function clearly and optimal health is restored.Gentle Touch Chiropractic & Wellness Center 2126 1st Ave S St. Petersburg, Florida 33712 727-235-3265
At Gentle Touch Chiropractic and Wellness Center we use Acupuncture to correct imbalances relating to the body’s internal health.
Acupuncture has a long history, extending back to ancient China. It is estimated that the science is around 5,000 to 7,000 years old. The Chinese health practitioners knew that there existed a system of energy pathways that traveled around the body. This system includes over 1,000 “Acupoints” which are part of 12 main energy networks known in Chinese medicine as “Meridians.”
Each Meridian corresponds to a given organ system such as the circulatory, digestive, genitourinary, reproductive systems and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, the result is a break down of health.
What is Meant by Balancing the Meridians?
When considering balance, imagine if we were to compare a 175 pound man on one end of a seesaw and a 45 pound child on the other end, some would assume that the seesaw would be “broken” due to the fact that the heavier person would be sitting on the ground, while the lighter child would be dangling in mid-air. Even though the seesaw is producing a symptom of being broken, an extensive examination of the seesaw would reveal that it was perfectly intact. The obvious answer is in the balance. Correction of the balance corrects the problem.
The energy flow within the human body courses over 12 meridians or channels that are normally well balanced. Treatment of one or more key “Acupoints” on the body is done to restore balance to the affected internal organ system. Historians estimate that more patients have received benefit from Acupuncture in the past five thousand years than all other health care practices, both past and present.
The average human body is composed of 75% water. And, water is polar, that means it carries an electric charge, either positive or negative. When tiny metal needles are inserted just beneath the surface of the skin at specific Acupoints, the energy current travels along the body towards the needle. This occurs because the metal needle acts as a conductor of electricity. When the needle is placed in the specific Acupoint corresponding to the organ system that is being affected it redirects the vital electrical energy of the body to the organ that needs it the most.
The result is much like a “jump-start” on a dead battery left in your automobile. The internal organ system which requires a boost of vital energy is now able to receive this energy using your body’s own reserves (naturally occurring chemicals released in the body). In this way, Acupuncture treatments produce results without exposing the body to the dangerous side effects from prescription drugs or other more invasive medical procedures.Gentle Touch Chiropractic & Wellness Center 2126 1st Ave S St. Petersburg, Florida 33712 727-235-3265
Will Taking Vitamins Really Improve my Health?
Providing the body with the adequate nutrients it needs enhances detoxification and elimination of the harmful chemicals we are exposed to on a daily basis.
These toxins can include such products as makeup/cologne, alcohol consumption, smoking, prescription and over the counter drugs, household chemicals and exposure to heavy metals just to name a few. A typical grocery store devotes an entire aisle to vitamins. Are they giving your body what it needs? Are they worth the money?
Do I Really Need to Seek Professional Advice?
Do You Know?
- Which vitamins will react with your prescription drugs?
- The symptoms of a vitamin or mineral deficiency?
- Which vitamins you are getting from the foods you eat?
- If you should you be taking the same vitamins as everybody else?
- The proper combinations of vitamins you should be taking?
- If you should always be taking the same vitamins?
- Which organs can be affected by vitamins?
- Why you are experiencing the symptoms you currently feel?
- Which maladies start out as cellular imbalances, which can easily be corrected by using vitamin therapy?
- How healthy you really are?
If you answered “no” to any of these questions you need to continue reading.
If you are taking vitamins, make sure you are getting only the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Whole food sources are the best source for nutrients, because synthetic brands are often difficult for the body to absorb and tend to be unnecessarily expensive. This is particularly true of generic brands of vitamin compounds which are often sold at local health food stores. Many of these brands are sub-standard and even toxic to our bodies!
For example, many people take calcium on a regular basis, but they fail to take phosphorus. Calcium and phosphorus play a tandem role in our bodies, and therefore must exist in balance with one another. Taking calcium in the absence of phosphorus creates unhealthy stress on our cells.
I am not experiencing discomfort, and my blood tests are fine, why do I need to take vitamins?
It is vitally important to pay attention to any changes in your body, because subtle changes can escalate into major health issues if ignored. These changes are usually gradual, and they cause disruptions in the body’s natural processes, which can indicate vitamin deficiency, or excessive toxicity.
A lack of discomfort does not indicate that you are healthy. Many heart attacks have no symptoms! We are all aware of those who have been diagnosed with diseases who never felt the pain until it was too late. By the time a blood test can pick up a serious problem with your health, it has been going on for a very long time.
Vitamins in the proper dosages can prevent and eliminate many symptoms you may be experiencing, in addition to the ones you won’t feel until much later. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies have been implicated in many common health related problems, including:
- Weight related issues
- High cholesterol, or high blood pressure
- Blood sugar problems
- Female reproductive issues
- Digestive Complaints
- Prostate Problems
If you are going to purchase vitamins it helps to know how the body works, particularly your body because every person is different, and your symptoms may indicate the need for specific vitamin and mineral combinations you won’t get in one generic brand. At Gentle Touch Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we provide you with the appropriate guidance to make informed decisions regarding supplementation. If you are going to spend the money on vitamins, why not spend less and give your body what it really needs!
At Gentle Touch Chiropractic and Wellness Center we use a method which allows us to determine which vitamins your body requires, specifically. Not only does this system target vitamin and mineral deficiencies, it identifies which organ systems are at risk of being overly toxic. Our system doesn’t wait until you get sick before we are able to help you, we emphasize maintaining your health. Prevention is cost effective, it makes sense, and we are dedicated to helping you achieve your health goals. Isn’t it time you found out how you can stay healthy?Gentle Touch Chiropractic & Wellness Center 2126 1st Avenue South St. Petersburg, Florida 33712 727-235-3265
