Our Unique Approach

Our Unique Approach

We use a unique combination of methods that enables us to “read” your system—Applied Kinesiology and Functional Neurology.

What we do:

We find obstacles to your own healing process, prioritize them, and optimize them through functional medicine and chiropractic neurology.

 

How do you benefit from our services?

  • Faster relief from pain than with conventional treatments
  • Reduction or elimination of prescription drugs
  • Increased resistance to the stresses of life
  • Better and more effortless “living in gravity”
  • More energy
  • Better balance, vision, and coordination
  • Injury prevention and better healing from injuries
  • More money saved by preventing disease and treating conditions naturally

How is this accomplished?

Through Functional Neurology, you can

  • Re-establish or create better brain coherence for learning, processing, and focus
  • Have better and more accurate perception of your surroundings and body so that you have better reflexes, vision, and balance
  • Better adaptation to gravity
  • Control or eliminate pain
  • Improve function of all systems (digestive, cardiovascular, immune, etc.)

 

Applied Kinesiology and Acupuncture are healing systems that

  • Turn on weak muscles to prevent injury, as well as promote better healing from injury or surgery
  • Identify hidden problems that can potentially become a problem down the road
  • Track and follow your body’s constantly changing needs—this keeps your treatment relevant and appropriate for what is going on right now, to encourage and facilitate healthy aging
  • Tune your body to function at a higher level of performance

 

What we don’t do:

  • Keep you coming in for excessive treatments that you may not need. We get a lot done each visit because we are combining many different types of approaches. If you are not experiencing the results we are looking for in a reasonable amount of time, we will either refer you to the appropriate practitioner or change what we are doing.

What about the Cost?

Cost will vary, of course, among individual cases. We do our best to keep costs down. Since office visits are longer than most doctors’ sessions, much can be accomplished. Even if you don’t notice it right away, a lot of correction and healing takes place each visit, and is happening between visits while your body processes the changes. Overall, this is the most cost-effective form of health care, because of its preventive nature. If you can prevent a one-day hospital stay, you’ve already saved thousands. The average length and cost of a hospital stay is about 4.6 days at $5,857 (back in 2001), while the total cost of comprehensive care can be considerably less than one visit to the emergency room.
