Chiropractic care was developed in 1895 by Dr. D.D. Palmer. His son Dr. B.J. Palmer is credited with bringing Chiropractic nationwide. Chiropractic is a system of natural care addressing the physical, nutritional, and emotional causes of disease. The practice of Chiropractic is varied. There are those who practice traditionally focusing on misalignments of the spine we call Subluxations (something less than a dislocation). An adjustment is used to realign the out of place vertebra (the subluxation) thereby restoring energetic flow and health. Other chiropractors use instruments to adjust in a low force way, or non-force adjustments using energy points and emotional release. Some chiropractors augment their practices with physio-therapy, supplements and herbs, and stretching and exercise. At Hygiea Health we do it all. We personalize the plan to meet your needs based upon the Wellness evaluation or Chiropractic evaluation performed.
The Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.)
Developed by Dr. M.T. Morter Jr., B.E.S.T. is the hallmark of our treatment protocols. B.E.S.T. is a physical yet nonforceful, energy balancing procedure to re-establish the full healing potential of the body using its innate healing abilities. B.E.S.T. removes interference leads to dysfunction, illness, and disease. To augment your treatment, you will learn The MPower March and B.E.S.T. release procedures to do at home between treatments.
Koren Specific Technique (K.S.T.)
Developed by Dr. Ted Koren, this technique begins with a structural analysis to determine if any joint or physical structure is out of place – skull, TMJ, spine, discs, hips, sternum, shoulders, arms, legs, hands, feet – literally anything that is out of position can be analyzed. Correction of all misalignments is performed with the FDA approved Arthrostim™ adjusting instrument. It provides a very specific chiropractic adjustment without twisting, turning, “popping” or “cracking” of joints. Most people report a feeling of ease, relaxation and well-being as their structural nerve stress (subluxations) releases/diminishes.
We use muscle testing procedures influenced and developed by Dr. George Goodheart, Dr. Dick Versendaal, Dr. Freddie Ulan and Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt. This analysis identifies stressors caused by heavy metals, chemical and immune-challenging allergens, nutritional deficiencies, and organ and system imbalances. With this information a nutritional program is designed to build and optimize health.
Allergy Elimination Technique
This is a non-invasive, drug free, natural solution to eliminate the effects of food, environmental, personal care and animal sensitivities. This technique has been influenced by the work of Dr. Devi Nambudripad, Dr. Michael Lebowitz and Dr. Harvey Lang.
Every dysfunction, dis-ease or unwanted sign has a concurrent energy imbalance in the body. Microcurrent therapy works at the energetic level to interfere or eliminate these aberrant energy fields. We can further influence healthy cells, tissues, organs and systems toward a state of optimized health.
These devices are considered experimental only by the FDA. Therefore we do not make therapeutic claims about these devices nor do we charge for them.
Dr. Morter, my mentor, developed a program called the Six Essentials for Life – what you eat and drink, how you rest and exercise, and how you breathe and think. Recommendations will be given in the Six Essentials for Life. You are not expected to work on all at once. We will discuss the order of implementation. Attempting to do too much at a time will lead to overwhelm and negatively affect your program.
Herbs and Nutritional Supplementation
Nutritional programs are prescribed in phases. Our programs are focused on priority and immediate need. Taking too much stuff is as bad as not taking enough. We utilize Brazilian herbs, whole food supplements and homeopathic remedies. During each treatment your supplements will be evaluated for effectiveness and dose correction, if needed.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy rejuvenates cells, tissues, organs and systems. Our Scaler laser is unique in that it is programmable. We use this laser to unwind the body and put you into the ‘healing field’. Some of the benefits of laser therapy are: relieves acute and chronic pain; increases the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair; increases blood supply; stimulates the immune system; stimulates nerve function; develops collagen, muscle tissue and cells; promotes faster wound healing and clot formation and reduces inflammation. We do not treat asthma or other diseases with cold laser.
Rapid Release Technology
Rapid Release is an instrument that vibrates at a frequency that resonates with scar tissue. This frequency also triggers a neurological response known as the TVR which quickly relaxes muscle spasms.
Biofeedback – I.M.A.E.T.
The I.M.A.E.T. system is a biofeedback relaxation instrument. No information should be construed as a medical claim or representation that this product is intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, and prevention of disease or any other medical condition. A biofeedback, relaxation and stress management device records subtle, reactive, informational potentials provided during assessment. The computer evaluates such responses and then challenges the individual by feeding it back. This process assists the body’s own relaxation and stress management mechanisms by encouraging a sense of wellness, balance, and harmony.
