Hello and Welcome to My Practice

Hello and welcome to my practice. If you have been referred to me, it’s my pleasure to help you understand why you have been recommended to me. If you found me on your own or by accident, you have come across the web site of a very unique and very caring Holistic Doctor.

Today, more and more people than ever before are seeking “Natural or Holistic” healthcare. This type of healthcare has become so much part of the mainstream of our healthcare system that calling it “Alternative” no longer applies.

People are beginning to learn and understand that illness may also be due to physiological dysfunction. Poor health does not always fall into the realm of pathology requiring medication or surgery. Illness due to physiological dysfunction can benefit tremendously by re-establishing health and wellness without a dependency on Pharmaceuticals. Complementary (Natural) healthcare offers the option of regaining health by helping the body and mind heal themselves.

At my practice I focus on figuring out the causes of your health problems on all levels and do not merely treat your symptoms. My unique holistic approach allows me to get to these different causes, correct them and then help your body regain its health. In the process most of your symptoms are eliminated and you no longer have to use prescription drugs or over the counter medications for temporary relief.

Holistic Chiropractor & Applied Kinesiologist
  • Dr Liakos is a certified Applied Kinesiologist. Applied Kinesiology (AK), is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing with other standard methods of diagnosis. This method  of evaluation  is known  as the “Total Body Concept” or the “Triad of Health”. AK enables her to locate the source of your health problems so they can be effectively resolved using noninvasive techniques and protocols.

    Applied Kinesiology enables Dr Liakos to direct therapy towards the imbalanced sides of the health triad . Within the body there exists a muscle-organ/gland-nutrient-nerve relationship. By figuring out why a muscle or muscles are not functioning properly, she is able to  figure out what parts of your body are not working correctly and then formulate the best treatment plan for your specific health issues. The different therapies that Dr Liakos uses to correct  the imbalances and improperly functioning systems include  cranial techniques, meridian therapy (acupuncture and acupressure), various myofascial therapies (muscular), clinical nutrition, joint manipulation or mobilization, dietary management, lifestyle changes, exercise and various neurological reflex therapies.

     Applied Kinesiology pulls from many other health disciplines including but not limited to chiropractic,  eastern medicine, psychology, osteopathy, nutrition, acupuncture, naturopathy, podiatry, western medicine,  and more. It is the only holistic approach to health that looks at the body structurally, chemically and  mentally all together (The Triad of Health), in order to help correct imbalances  and help restore your body back to to optimal health.

  • Dr Liakos is not  your average chiropractor. With over 30 years of experience , she has developed a practice that incorporates a total body approach to helping you get well. As a holistic  chiropractor she first determines  if there is nerve interference between the brain and the nervous system. Nerve interference can be caused by many different things. Subluxation ( misalignment of a vertebrae), physical, mental and chemical stress, accidents, dietary choices, medications, alcohol and recreational drugs can all cause nerve interference through out the body. When this occurs, your brain can not manufacture and then send the proper chemicals  down the spinal chord to the spinal nerve roots and then to the peripheral nerves  to run your body properly.

    What  makes Dr Liakos so different , is her combining of chiropractic and applied kinesiology. She has studied with the top researchers in her field and has combined  their protocols to develop her own special technique uniquely her own. She knows and understands the “Total Body Concept"(Triad of Health) . No other health practitioners, “Traditional or Alternative” does this with the  complete understanding of  the three sides of the triad. How they interact with each other, how they must be evaluated for the underlying cause of a health problem and how these imbalances must be corrected. By understanding how an imbalance on one side of this triad can affect the other two sides, Dr Liakos has been able to help her patients get well on multiple levels.

    This is why Dr Liakos is truly unique.  By bringing together applied kinesiology  and holistic  chiropractic care she has been able to help thousands of patients male and female, young and old, with all types of health problems. Patients  that come to see her usually have not done well with traditional medicine and other holistic health care professionals. Dr Liakos treats each patient as the distinct  individual they are and puts them on protocols she developed to specifically meet their health needs.  She see's patient in both her NYC and LI, NY offices.

About Dr. Liakos

I have been a Nationally Board Certified Chiropractor for 32 years. I graduated from Life Chiropractic College (now Life Univ.) in 1983. After graduating I worked for one year as an Associate Doctor in the Washington, D.C. area.

It was during this year that I began exploring Applied Kinesiology, Eastern Medicine, Nutrition, Homeopathy, Naturopathy and other “Natural” health protocols as I began to be on my way to becoming a “Holistic Chiropractor”.

In 1984 I opened my own practice, also in the Washington, D.C. area, where I remained for 21 years. I became a Certified Applied Kinesiologist (similar to a residency in medicine), a Certified Chiropractic Sport and Rehab Specialist, and a Diplomate in Disability Ratings.

During this period of time I also became a Certified Practitioner in the following Chiropractic Techniques:

  • Activator
  • Nemo
  • Cox
  • NET (Neuro Emotional Tech)
  • Body/Mind Tech
  • Diversified
  • SOT (Sacral-Occipital Tech)
  • Nutrition Response Testing
  • Extremity Adjusting Tech
    and
  • Cranial Respiratory Reflex Tech.

My practice began to evolve over the years moving away from patients who just wanted a fast adjustment for their neck or low back pain, into a full “Holistic Total Body Practice”.

As both a Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist, I was able to help patients with all types of health problems. People came to see me for Fatigue, Digestive problems, Malaise, Fibryomyalgia, Migraines, TMJ, PMS, Peri and Post Menopausal symptoms, Irritable Bowel, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Autoimmune disorders, Lyme disease, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to just name a few.

In 2004 I was nominated as a “Top Chiropractor in America” by my peers, an honor I do not take lightly. During this same year my family and I moved back to the New York area where I was originally from.

Rather than opening up a large practice incorporating other Chiropractors, and other “Natural” healthcare practitioners as I had done in the past, I decided to have a small office totally dedicated to helping patients regain their health. Most of my patients have not done well either with traditional medicine or other “Alternative” healthcare practitioners. They have usually been told that there is nothing really wrong with them or they will have to just learn to live with it. When they find me, they are so relieved that someone can finally tell them what is wrong with them and then help them get well and begin living a full life again!

As I enter my 32nd year of practice, I continue to be excited about adding all the new protocols I continually learn, so that I may provide my patients with the best possible care. By continuing to broaden my techniques and skills I keep learning more and more about how amazing the human body actually is and all the wonderful things it capable of achieving.
