Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Brain Connections™

Alternative and Holistic Practitioner care for headaches

It’s our own experiences and challenges that force us to look for creative solutions and think outside the box. Linda’s path for developing Brain Connections™ is no exception. After having a daughter diagnosed with ADD and then suffering a concussion from playing hockey, Linda sought to find answers traditional therapy was not providing. Having trained under the best in the field, Linda combined all of her knowledge and created a permanent solution to address brain function.

Brain Connections™ therapy is a non-invasive technique created by Linda Cherf to support children and adults with brain based conditions such as  ADD, ADHD, OCD, dyslexia, brain injury, concussion, autism, anxiety, and depression. Brain Connections™ is rooted in acupuncture theory and uses a combination of acupressure and CranioSacral Therapy using hand holds on specific acupuncture points to make connections in the brain that occur with normal brain function. Linda has found that the disconnection of the creative and analytical sides of the brain often causes challenging behaviors.  This disconnection hinders thoughts and actions from being processed on both sides of the brain like they need to be.  One side of the brain is going to function stronger and the other side weaker or, both sides of the brain are weak. Behaviors that are associated with ADD, ADHD, OCD, Asperger’s, or Dyslexia often result.

Through the practice of Brain Connections™, Linda reestablishes the pathways between the creative and the analytical sides of the brain. Once the pathways have been reestablished the destructive behaviors, such as meltdowns, are reduced or even eliminated. The child’s self esteem is elevated, they become more able to complete tasks, and grades and social skills improve. The stress level in the whole family decreases. This is done without the use of medications. Once these connections are made they should stay unless there is an injury such as a concussion or a traumatic emotional event.


Brain Connections effectively addresses:

  • Difficulties with starting, organizing, and finishing tasks
  • Poor listening, communication, and social skills
  • Reversing letters or numbers and avoiding math and reading
  • Angry outbursts, restlessness, and trouble relaxing
  • Repetitive behaviors, eccentric rituals, and limited range of interests
  • Poor recall of facts, coordination, and logical processing

Brain Connections for Children

Since starting her Oriental Medicine practice in 2003, and as a parent of a child with ADD, Linda Cherf has seen many parents frustrated with children who are really smart, but perform poorly in school, struggle to stay focused, can not complete simple tasks, and suffer from meltdowns. Often parents will either try and figure out how to cope on their own because they don’t want to medicate their child, or they take their child to a doctor that may diagnose the child with ADD, ADHD, OCD, Asperger’s, or Dyslexia. These labels can limit the child unexpectedly, such as entering certain job fields. Often times medication is prescribed, which the child doesn’t like to take. Either way the results are limiting, and the struggling parents end up frustrated and exhausted.


Brain pathways can be disrupted due to the following:

  • Emotional stress such as divorce or adoption
  • Physical trauma to the body or head
  • Direct injury to brain
  • Childhood abuse
  • Genetic abnormalities
  • Allergies
  • Environment toxins
  • Vaccinations

Brain Connections for Adults

Brain Connections for adults focuses on improving problem solving skills, communication skills, creativity, and hand-eye coordination.

  • Unfinished tasks
  • Mood swings
  • Short tempered
  • Clumsiness
  • Dyslexia
  • Problems focusing
  • Obsessive thoughts
  • Cognitive issues
  • Unrealized potential
