It’s been one year since the world as we knew it changed. Governor Wolf has announced major reopenings in Pennsylvania effective today, so it looks like we are finally getting back to a sense of the new normal. But it is best to continue to take precautions when you are in public, cases in our area are on a slight upswing.
Going Green – COVID update.
We all remember Kermit singing that it’s not easy being green, but we are excited that Allegheny and Butler Counties are now in green status. For Zock Family Chiropractic, that means that we will be offering massage therapy starting on Monday. We are all experiencing more stress than is then normal due to isolation and the lack of human contact. Both massage therapy and the soft tissue work that Dr. Zock performs prior to adjustment are useful techniques from reducing muscle stress and tension, increasing your sense of well being, and eliminating toxins from your body.

Amidst the uncertainty and chaos surrounding Covid-19, many of us are feeling increased bouts of anxiety and general stress. And while we’ve talked about the physical way stress presents itself in the body, we haven’t discussed the concept of coping with the anxiety itself. Since many of us now have more time to sit and ruminate in our negative thoughts, we thought now might be a good time to talk about the ways we can stay present and keep ourselves less stressed during this time.
We at Zock Family Chiropractic always want to do what’s right in regard to our patient’s health and well-being. And we want to assure you that your safety and the safety of all our practice members and staff remain our number one priority. We know there is a lot of fear and worry amidst the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are keeping up with the latest news and information from a variety of sources to make sure we are doing all we can to protect your health.
Cleaning is crucial when it comes to protecting our health. We’re exposed to toxins, bacteria, and other harmful invaders in our homes, schools, and workplaces. However, household and cleaning products often include harmfully harsh chemicals. The good news is that you can limit your exposure to these harsh chemicals. Not to mention that a movement of “green” and “natural” cleaning products is occurring now!
Toxic is a word that continues to pop up in our culture. Toxic chemicals, toxic waste. Even toxic relationships. We are becoming exposed to more and more toxins in our everyday life. Once meant to be helpful and not intentionally dangerous, we are now learning of the alarming effects these chemicals cause. We are continually exposed to chemicals in our food, the air we breathe, and a plethora of common items we all use every single day. To combat these toxins, another word has become popular as of late – detoxification. Ranging from detox teas to charcoal towels, companies rely on this trigger word as a means of advertising to a scared consumer market. But did you know that our bodies naturally detoxify our bodies? Today, we’re going to jump into the science and begin destigmatizing detox.
