Omaha now home to NUCCA chiropractic

From a press release dated February 2010.

Dr. Marcella Ziska Returns to Omaha to Practice NUCCA Chiropractic

Metro residents who have been following the breakthrough research study on lowering blood pressure using the NUCCA technique will be pleased to know that Omaha native, Dr. Marcy Ziska, has set up her NUCCA practice in West Omaha. Dr. Ziska is one of only 300 doctors worldwide who are specifically trained in and practice the NUCCA technique.

NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) was recently in the news due to a double-blind study done at the University of Chicago. Researchers proved that this specific and gentle type of correction in the upper neck significantly decreased the blood pressure of patients with hypertension. Typically a reduction this significant would require taking two blood pressure medications simultaneously.

NUCCA differs from most chiropractic techniques in that it removes pressure from the brain stem. The brainstem controls numerous bodily functions, including blood pressure, breathing, digestion and the muscles of the neck and back. To accomplish this, the NUCCA doctor focuses on the top bone in the neck and gently and specifically aligns the skull and upper neck. This correction is long-lasting and has full-body effects. Because this area can become misaligned without pain, it often goes undetected and untreated. Even a slight misalignment of the upper cervical area can cause major health problems.

Dr. Ziska was introduced to NUCCA 10 years ago while suffering from hyperthyroid disease. After numerous medical doctors were unable to stabilize her condition, a friend recommended NUCCA. Once under NUCCA care, Dr. Ziska became healthy again and was able to discontinue all medication and avoid surgery. The change was so profound that she decided to return to school for a doctorate in chiropractic.

Dr. Ziska’s practice, Body in Harmony, is in Miracle Hills near 120th and Dodge Street. She can be reached at (402) 614-4201.


NUCCA Healing Stories

Check out some of our patient testimonials below!

High blood pressure improves


Just wanted to let you know how my blood pressure went down from over 145-155/85-90 down to 120/70. I had a life insurance physical shortly thereafter and the results were so outstanding that I got the Preferred Best rating.

All that for a 68 year old who has had problems with hypertension for the last 5 years. You said we could give NUCCA a try and it sure worked well for me.

Help with jaw pains and migraines


I have had migraines and jaw pain for years and they are all gone after only a few visits. I am so grateful and can’t wait to see the results my husband gets.

Off of allergy medication


I was a sickly kid and have had bad allergies my whole life. I have not had to take allergy medicine since the first correction and am thrilled. It is so great to be able to breathe again and not take medicine that I know has harmful side-effects. It is easier to get through my whole day. Thanks.

No headaches now, with deeper sleep


I used to have headaches, really bad ones, at least once a week.  I haven’t had one since I came to your office. I sleep deeper and just have a better sense of well-being. I am so glad I found out about you.

I wanted less anxiety – I got that, plus more than I bargained for


I feel great – no shoulder tightness. All I wanted was to have less anxiety and I got that…and more than I bargained for. My wife and daughter feel great after NUCCA too. Thank you, Marcy.

Better balance while dancing


I feel very square and my balance in dance class and when teaching is really improved. I told my husband and a friend that they just have to come to see you.

I was very skeptical – worth the trip


I was very skeptical about NUCCA, but tried it after a work injury. My shoulder was numb, painful and tingly before driving several hours to see Dr. Ziska. Well, the tingling and numbness are gone and I have pain much less often. It was worth the trip!

No more back pain after one visit


This is great! No more back pain just after one visit. I feel great as a result of NUCCA care.
