Welcome to Sheer Wellness

Welcome to Sheer Wellness


Well being is a personal choice. Each day of our lives, we make conscious decisions about how we move and the foods we eat. Many of the diseases that plague Americans are brought on or exacerbated by unhealthy habits. If you have been less than kind to your body in the past, you can change all that. It won't happen all at once, but change can and will happen, if you choose it. Every day, you can make the choice to live in a way that encourages balance and harmony, both physically and emotionally. At Sheer Wellness center, we offer a range of physical therapies and dietary guidelines that are sure to contribute to your improved sense of comfort, happiness and well being.

What is Chiropractic Medicine?


First, one must realize that the human body comprises a series of distinct yet interconnected systems. Among these vital systems are the central nervous system, or CNS, the skeletal system, and the muscular system. If any of these crucial systems is distorted or out of balance, the whole body may suffer ill effects. Well educated chiropractors perform gentle spinal and skeletal manipulations that may bring the body back into alignment. Massage and ice therapy are other treatment modalities that are often employed by a chiropractic professional. Subluxation, or slight dislocation of the spine may contribute to a host of medical maladies.

Chiropractic Medicine combines natural, conservative therapies with nutritional guidance and lifestyle counseling. Chiropractic Medicine recognizes the human body's innate ability to heal itself when provided with good posture and excellent nutrition. Sessions with a Doctor of Chiropractic may aid your body in healing from injury or from years of bad lifestyle choices. If you're already relatively healthy, chiropractic therapy can help you feel even more vibrant and alive.

Who is Dr Alikakos?


In addition to being a fully licensed Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine, Dr Valerie Alikakos is a classically trained dancer. For this reason, Dr Alikakos may have a greater understanding of the human frame and how it functions than most traditional physicians. She utilizes chiropractic, orthopedic and neurological testing to determine the cause of physical imbalance. The doctor treats each of her patients as a whole person, not just a series of symptoms to be alleviated.

You are cordially invited to schedule a consultation with Dr Valerie Alikakos at the Sheer Wellness center. We are conveniently located at 635 Madison Avenue, between 59th Street and 60th Street in Manhattan. Please call212.535.8555 for clinic hours and driving directions.
