Natural Health Exam: This exam is a comprehensive study of the human body using observation skills from the Orient and Europe. It is a preventative approach focusing on organ system efficiency and cleansing. For each client the exam consists of a combination of alternative modalities; Iridology, Tongue analysis, Facial Observation, Pulse analysis, a Japanese Hara technique. Remedy testing, and Natural Treatment plan recommendations. $95.00 - $135.00

Energetic Dry Needle Neural Therapy - Dry Needle Neural Therapy is a technique that provides pain relief and aids in return of function and mobility. It is performed by medically trained licensed health care professionals such as nurses, med techs, and doctors. These professionals are instructed initially with their formal education and have added additional training in order to perform Neural Therapy. It originated with Dr. Huneke in the 1930’s during his consolidation of knowledge on the Autonomic Nervous System. This therapy works on the autonomic ganglia (nerve groups controlling internal organs), peripheral nerves (nerves controlling the extremities, such as arms and legs), scars, glands, acupressure points, trigger points, and segmental points (nerve points controlling segments of the body). Energetic Dry Needle Neural Therapy applies pressure with fingers and then insertion of small hypodermic needles. After insertion energy is released. Guided Imagery can be added upon request. $95.00

Lymphatic Drainage - The method provides Gently and rhythmic movement through the lymph system of the body, especially inflamed areas, relieving pressure and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and therapeutic technique, LD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling and discomfort, and strengthened resistance to illness. $105.00

Muscle Response Allergy Testing (MRAT) and Treatment - A person is evaluated with muscle response testing (MRT) to see if her/she is sensitive to a particular substance (allergen). The allergen gives off an energetic signature that can be detected by the body. The energetic signature is picked up by nerve receptors in the hands and arms. If the individual demonstrates positive sensitivity (weakness) he/she is a candidate for MRAT. This type of an evaluation is a bio-energetic test.

While a client holds a vial containing a dilute form of an allergen in one hand the practitioner tests the muscle strength on the opposite hand and arm. If the client shows muscle weakness then it represents sensitivity to the allergen in the vial. Upon determining the sensitivity the practitioner has two options for treatment naturally. The practitioner can select oral homeopathic medicines for treatment and desensitization or a bio-energetic treatment. With the bio-energetic treatment the client holds the vial containing the dilute form of the allergen while the practitioner applies pressure and tapping to peripheral nerve points. These points create a pathway whereby neurological information to the allergy is released. In addition acupressure is applied to energy points along the spine, hands, wrists, legs, and feet. The acupressure to these points facilitates the introduction of new information into the person’s body through energetic channels. In this manner effects of the offending substance (allergen) no longer disrupt the body’s immune system. Then the immune system no longer sees the substance as a threat. $95

Hypnosis - This therapy helps individuals quit habits that they no longer want. Smoking, weight loss, and anxiety are some of the most asked about, but hypnosis can be a help to stop any bad habit. During hypnosis, the client may experience a trance state that is similar to meditation or a light sleep. In this state, the conscious mind is relaxed so that the subconscious mind can take in the thoughts and suggestions that the client wishes to happen. The subconscious mind controls habits and is aware of everything that is happening around the client during the session. The first session for hypnosis is usually an hour and a half. $95 - $145
