Integrated Health & Wellness Center is located in Fayetteville, AR offers a different approach to healing, health and wellness. Our chiropractors believe that health is a choice, and that wellness is much more than the mere absence of disease. The human body is amazing and superbly capable of healing. The nervous system is the master control system that controls every funtion in the body. We get sick because the nervous system is disrupted through chemical, physical and emotional stress, thereby interfering with the body’s ability to heal and rejuvenate itself. The chiropractic techniques we use in our Fayetteville, AR chiropractic clinic focuses on identifying and removing these interferences that prevent you from thriving.
The Neurologic Relief Center has been able to give a great many of our patients a better quality of life and health by employing exciting techniques that can reduce or eliminate the pain and other troubling symptoms they experience.

Our pain-relief therapies have a well-documented track record of success and are based on scientific observation and study.

Fibromyalgia is a condition generally caused by the malfunction of the autonomic (or automatic) nervous system, resulting in a large range of symptoms affecting the entire body, such as widespread pain, pain in the joints, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, migraines, neck and low back pain, smell and sound sensitivities, and many more. Fibromyalgia will affect the patient’s body on a functional level as well, causing chemical changes on a cellular level. Our healing system was designed to detect these metabolic malfunctions so that we can the systematically repair each abnormal chemical process in your body.
As many as eight million people worldwide suffer from reflex sympathetic pain syndrome/chronic regional pain syndrome (RSD/CRPS). Many have not been diagnosed, even though the pain they experience can be severe, debilitating, and life-changing.
As Dr. Katinka van der Merwe, DC, QNP, reveals in Putting Out the Fire, RSD/CRPS was first documented during the Civil War. It took physicians many decades to understand the subtleties of the disease, and research is still moving forward. Dr. Van der Merwe is at the forefront of new treatments to relieve pain.
Van der Merwe helps readers understand the myriad symptoms associated with RSD/CRPS and explains how the syndrome stems from a malfunction in the central nervous system.
In addition to providing background and research on RSD/CRPS, Van der Merwe includes her revolutionary Four-Punch System treatment technique. She uses her expertise in Vagus Nerve awakening, Quantum Neurology nerve rehabilitation, frequency-specific microcurrent, and the VECTTOR Therapy System to compressively treat pain at its source.
Not only must RSD/CRPS sufferers deal with the chronic, constant pain, but they often have anxiety, depression, and frustration about their condition. Van der Merwe understands this and gives readers hope for a brighter future.
