About White Tree

About White Tree

My name is Blackwood – so why not call my practice White Tree…?

But there are other reasons: a tree has a trunk – its core from which all other branches grow. Just like your spine is the key bony structure providing the stability from which all other bony structures can move.1

The nerve ‘trunks’ which transport nerve impulse to the brain are known as ‘white matter’. The brain has more ‘grey matter’ – but Grey Tree Chiro didn’t work so well. And well, we work through the spine to affect the brain… So White Tree it is…
