FLINT TWP. — Jon Morey, a local Chiropractic Physician and university biology professor, hosted a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, October 18, at Great Lakes Chiropractic and Movement Center, in the Valley Plaza at 4215 Miller Road, according to a press release from the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce.
This innovative and unique healthcare facility offers Chiropractic Healthcare, features certified instructors in natural human movement, and provides nutritional counseling and metabolic therapy, martial arts training, and massage.
“Through my years of chiropractic experience, I have treated patients whose bodies are afflicted mainly by pain caused from a lack of mobility – caused by sitting or standing all day, general inactivity, or from not moving in the way our bodies are designed to move.,” said Morey, who owns and operates the center. “Much of this discomfort can be avoided by learning or relearning how to move naturally.”
The Center is the first MovNat licensed facility in the Midwest. MovNat is a physical education and fitness method that uses the full range of natural human movements. Natural Movement lessons and exercises can provide improved balance and mobility, pain relief, and increased fitness. The benefits range from helping people in basic everyday tasks such as getting up off the floor, to advanced athletes looking to improve agility and efficiency in their sport.
The Center’s nutritional counseling service offers clients individual programs based on the individual’s body composition and metabolic makeup, and their personal goals – whether that be weight loss, improved energy, or to assist in the treatment of certain conditions.
Morey added, “The systems that make our bodies function work together rather than independently; what we feed our bodies greatly affects the performance across these systems. You could have a person who suffers from joint pain every time they exercise – the fact is their diet may be high in foods that cause inflammation adding to the pain. This is why we use two scientific tests and make recommendations based on the person’s individual body makeup.”
The center is accepting appointments for Chiropractic and nutritional services, and offers several class times for MovNat Fitness Lessons. Learn more at greatlakesmovement.com.
Morey is a licensed Chiropractic Physician, MovNat Certified Trainer, 5th degree black belt, and a Biology professor at the University of Michigan-Flint. One of his “special interests” has always been the human body and how it works. This is the reason for his life-long study of the martial arts, human movement, nutrition, and what eventually led him to become a physician. Morey continues to learn about the body by teaching Pre-Med Gross Anatomy, Neuroscience, and other classes at the University of Michigan-Flint.
