Why choose a Holistic Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist!

Unlike the medical field, which has done a very good job in distinguishing the many different types of medical doctors and what specifically their specialties are and treat, the chiropractic field has failed greatly in this area. Most people think that if they go to a chiropractor, the only differences they have to be concerned about is location and if they accept their insurance.

If one has seen a chiropractor before, they may be familiar with specific adjusting techniques and physical therapy. Fortunately, not all chiropractors practice the same, so patients do have the ability to pick and choose a practitioner that they feel suits their health needs.

When I first started in practice, I wanted to adjust as many patients as possible, put physical therapy on them and perhaps recommend a back support or cervical pillow to help with their structural problems. As I grew as a doctor, I began exploring Applied Kinesiology and other holistic health protocols because I always felt that the body was interconnected through all its systems and just fixing structure was only the tip of the iceberg.

As I began taking many Applied Kinesiology seminars on many different health issues, I was amazed at how more efficiently I could help my patients regain their health in so many different ways. I eventually became a Certified Applied Kinesiologist. The nature and feel of my practice began to change and the type of patients that started coming to see me changed dramatically as well. Instead of fixing someone’s lower back pain, I was able to help them with their digestive problems, their headaches, their lack of energy, their hormonal imbalances along with their lower back pain. The more advanced I became as an Applied Kinesiologist, the more complicated my patients became. This challenged me to continue to became a much better Holistic Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist, for which I am grateful for.

As I approach my 32nd Anniversary in practice, I continue to remain excited about all the new protocols and techniques I am looking forward to learning. Every time I return from an Applied Kinesiology Seminar, I can’t wait to try the new techniques that I have learned on each and every one of my patients.

As a Certified Applied Kinesiologist,  I am also a Holistic Chiropractor. I look at all your systems equally, structure, chemical, and the brain to try to return your body to its most optimal health. The body is an amazing machine. By learning how to fix it, fine tune it and correct its imbalances amazing health changes can happen. This is what I try to do every day for my patients.

So next time you decide to look for a chiropractor, remember that there is a big difference between how I practice and how others do. Take a few minutes to think about what state of health your body is actually in. Do you really want to get as healthy as you possibly can? If so, think about finding someone like me, someone truly holistic, someone who will think outside the box to help you achieve your healthiest possibilities, both now and in the future.

Chiropractor & Applied Kinesiologist located in Midtown West, New York, NY & Long Island, Glen Head, NY

Dr. Bonnie Liakos is a Holistic Chiropractor & Applied Kinesiologist who practices in Midtown West, New York, NY and Glen Head, NY on Long Island.

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 website 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 not your average holistic 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 35 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 35th 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.
