About Precise Moves and Dr. Amie Gregory, DC, CCEP and Amino Neuro Frequency Therapy Instructor
I became interested in chiropractic while training as an amateur boxer. After workouts, I began to have wrist, lower back, and elbow pain. This was starting to affect my desk job duties and I began to see a chiropractor because a co-worker’s husband had a local practice. My physical problems diminished quickly and it allowed me to continue doing what I loved. I could work out without pain and didn’t notice any problems at work. During my care, I began to discover how amazing the natural process of healing was without medication or surgery. I had never experienced this type of care before. This sparked my interest in chiropractic, anatomy, and physiology. I quickly quit my nine to five job at a San Francisco high tech company and enrolled in chiropractic school because I was so blown away at how a chiropractor could facilitate such effective healing only using their hands and specific tools. I wanted to become a doctor to help other people the same way I was. I also wanted to give people something they may have not experienced before when seeking help from a doctor. I am passionate about what I do, constantly learn new techniques and modalities to help my patients any way I can. Health and wellness take some work along with changes in lifestyle habits and I am here to listen, guide and help you get results.
I love working with people who want a natural and holistic method of healing. I truly care about your health and well being and though you may come in with a specific issue, I will analyze your whole body to find out why any issue has shown up and if anything else is festering in your system waiting to present itself as a symptom. I monitor your progress with hands-on tests and state of the art technology (“The Insight”) to cover all facets of health. Whether you are coming in with an athletic injury, car accident issue or to make sure you are in the best health you can be in, your health is my top priority. Using the Insight is accurate but non-invasive and painless. I will allow me to see what stress your body is under and areas to focus on that may not have surfaced yet so we can address them and make sure they do not impede your life in the future.
I not only focus on your body as a whole but understand that most athletes are normally pretty involved in what keeps them able to function optimally to achieve the best results at their chosen sport and stay as healthy possible. Being a former patient and athlete (boxing, softball, triathlete, tennis, boot camp), I understand the demands put on the body, how to eliminate stress and achieve health and wellness. We work as a team to keep you not only able to do the things you love but make sure your health is in tip-top shape!
“I will do my best to make sure all of my patients feel comfortable, welcome, understood and like family while working toward their optimal health goals.” We are a team! – Dr. Amie Gregory, DC, CCEP, ANF Instructor

Because of this, she covers all facets of health and wellness care from not only the nervous system but all systems of the body (organs) and how they relate to the full body. This means she can guide you in various ways to make sure you are healthy and happy allowing you to live the lifestyle that you want to live and actually thrive!
Why go to the chiropractor for your whole body instead of just neck and back?
Well, neck and back pain is a health problem caused by stress on the body. This stress can be physical, emotional or chemical. We need to find out where this stress is coming from and what you are doing in your life that is contributing to these issues.
Symptoms normally arise because of improper lifestyle habits such as repetitive actions, sitting, sleeping or standing in stressful positions, physical accidents, poor eating habits, and emotional stress. We help find the cause by analyzing your whole body in search for any stress that may be dormant waiting to surface and cause symptoms. We want to make sure you are not only pain-free but healthy and able to function correctly so problems don’t arise later. In order to do this, we track your nerves from head to toe (feet, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, ankles and hips) and discuss other habits you have in your life that may be contributing to your health issues.
We understand that each person is unique and may require different treatment methods in order to heal, so we tailor an individual care plan to get quicker and long lasting results just for you. We guide you in any way we can and are here to answer any questions you may have along the way. We know you have a lot of choices out there and we are confident that we will get results and keep you on the road to health.
So what makes this place different than any other? Dr. Gregory covers all facets of health by applying different modalities for every area of the body, not only the spine!

STRESS ADAPTABILITY AND ANALYSIS:
When performing exams, in addition to any orthopedic, muscle testing and body analysis it may also be necessary use our Insight station which is the most innovative and scientific technology to track your care and progress. This was developed by the space foundation which has been used on astronauts before being cleared for flight. It is used by Cardiologists, Physical Therapists and is a great way to track how your body is responding to care and if changes need to be made to your treatments. It is used on professional athletes to track health and progress to make sure their body is working efficiently and keep track of any changes that need to be addressed during training. This unit includes a Thermograph (heat sensor), Electromyograph (muscle evaluation) listens and monitors your heart and your autonomic nervous system which is responsible for all functions in your body.

SOFT TISSUE REPAIR WITH GRASTON TECHNIQUE:
Another name for this modality is SASTM (a Graston Technique). SASTM is a physical therapy technique used on anyone from professional athletes to weekend warriors to help repair injuries and keep range of motion at its optimal level. These tools get rid of scar tissue, knots and adhesions from sports injuries or repetitive stress injuries and keep your tissues working as efficiently as they can. This technique is great for anyone that has had a chronic musculo-skeletal issue, joint stiffness or trigger points in muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Keeping the pelvis and low back aligned and moving properly allows your baby to be comfortable, making you comfortable and ready for birth. Even if your baby is not breech, this technique can help during your full pregnancy and help promote an easier labor.

Dr. Gregory is dedicated to helping you reach your goals. You will transform into the healthy, strong, vibrant individual you want to be gently, naturally and without drugs or surgery.
AMINO NEURO FREQUENCY THERAPY:
This therapy is for you, if you have tried several treatments that did not help, or are looking for a therapy which quickly addresses the root cause of pain, without the use of drugs or invasive procedures.
Most clients notice significant pain reduction within 10-20 minutes.
A thorough assessment will be done to find the root of your problem. Areas looked at can included your nervous system, lymphatic system, muscles and joints. Once the analysis has identified the cause(s) of your problem/pain, we will prepare a treatment plan that combines the use of different ANF discs.
What are we looking for? Inflammation. Any area that is not working properly has inflammation. You may not feel it yet but the exam will locate areas that are lingering, waiting to show up. You may have an inflammation if, for example, you have stiffness in a part of the body or the whole body in the morning; or if you experience the same acute pain every few months or years. It is most probably an invisible inflammation (inflammation that is in the body but not shown up as a symptom yet). When your problem is being addressed, you will experience less discomfort, less pain and greater well-being. The therapy can also be used to boost your performance level. If you are taking any drugs, the therapy’s effectiveness may be slowed down.
For this treatment it is essential that you are hydrated! This means drinking at least 1-2 glasses of water per hour until 2 hours before going to bed. Drink one extra glass of water if you have a cup of coffee/beer/wine. Shoot for your urine to be colorless /very pale yellow.
These unique discs release the electrical frequencies that occur in your body by using the carbonized metal they are made of. These frequencies are already used by the body itself to function; the discs only amplify them. By doing so, the body’s functions start to work normally again or are strengthened/normalized. Areas of dysfunction run on lower frequencies so these discs bring the neurons back up to functioning the way they should.
There is no evidence that discs may compromise the effectiveness of any prescribed medication. Do not stop using any medicines without consulting your own doctor.
How long does it take for areas to work properly again? The duration of treatment is individual – it can take from 1 to 4 months, depending on the nature of the problem.
If there is multiple issues to be normalized, this typically happens in phases, the normalization of the body can take up to 6 months.
In the beginning we will see you at the clinic each week, so that we can monitor and adjust your treatment. As you get better, it will take longer between consultations.
During treatments, your body will start to eliminate toxins that have accumulated. When the body starts to eliminate these waste products, you may experience detox symptoms: In our experience, the more water you drink, the fewer detox symptoms you have.
- Dry mouth
- Dizziness / feel light-headed
- Light flu symptoms
- General discomfort
- Runny nose
- Skin problems
How long the above-mentioned symptoms may last and how unpleasant the detox experience will be may vary. We noticed that the greater the need for the body to detox, the longer and stronger the symptoms.This process is important for the body to function again properly. If the detox is too strong for you, you can always stop the detox effects by taking the discs off .
