KST Technique

Koren Specific Technique

In this office we offer a unique, breakthrough approach to patient care called Koren Specific Technique (KST). There is no twisting, turning, “cracking” or “popping” of joints with KST; instead, you receive gentle, specific corrections to your spine and structural system. Most adjustments or corrections are done with you standing or sitting.

Correcting Subluxations

We are correcting a serious form of nerve stress caused by distortions in your spine and structural system. This stress is known as subluxation. Subluxations can cause physical and mental/emotional malfunction. They are often associated with loss of energy, pain, weakness, and disease of all types.

What causes subluxations?

Subluxations may be caused by physical, chemical or emotional stress or trauma. Our purpose in this office is to remove this stress from your body/mind complex so that you may become physically and mentally healthier.

Gentle yet powerful

KST is very gentle and yet very powerful. Patients usually notice dramatic changes from the first visit. Your body will likely hold its corrections for a much longer time with KST, so you can have deeper physical and emotional subluxations (stresses) addressed.

What does KST do?

KST permits us to quickly, easily and gently check and correct (or adjust) your body for subluxations, wherever they may arise. This includes your cranial bones, TMJ, entire spinal (vertebral) column, sacrum, coccyx, discs, hips, sternum, ribs, femur heads (upper thigh bones), shoulders, knees, feet, hands and anything else that needs correcting.


The real power of KST is that people often experience retracing as deep, unhealthy stresses leave their bodies. This is an essential aspect of the journey toward health and wellness for it involves expressing and releasing unhealthy physical and emotional stresses.Your body has many layers. At each session we correct what your body is revealing at that time. Older injuries, older distortions, older subluxations and older symptoms (both physical and emotional) may surface at later sessions. The release of old injuries is part of the healing process.
On occasion, some patients have reported “cleansing” symptoms such as diarrhea, pus, mucus, fever, rash, etc. These symptoms are usually temporary. Also, not everyone experiences retracing on a physical or conscious level. Sometimes dreams increase or unusual dreams occur as a result of KST care. Sometimes an area is so weak and the distortion so extensive that a segment put in place may not stay in position and may need re-correcting. This is very important because sometimes a subluxation can only be observed when you are in a certain posture. For example, if a person was in a car accident, their subluxations may only be revealed and completely corrected while they are seated.

Can discs be corrected?

One of the unique features of KST is the ability to analyze or check the body for disc conditions. Patients who have suffered for many years have found “miraculous” improvements from chronic problems with KST.

How Should I feel after a KST adjustment?

Everyone is different but certain general responses have been ?notices?. Many people report a feeling of ease, relaxation and well-being as their structural and nerve stress (subluxation) release. Often people report a “lighter feeling” the ability to breathe more deeply and sometimes an emotional release.
Eyesight may improve, with increase clarity and greater peripheral vision. This is a sign of increased blood flow to the brain. Some people may feel as if they’ve had a good workout, often in places they were never aware of before. This is usually temporary.
Please observe your dreams and physical changes over the next few days and let us know how you are responding.
