    • This is an outpatient therapy that is used by people who suffer from angina or cognitive heart failure
    • ECP can give you the benefit of 5 years of training for a marathon in just 7 weeks of therapy
    • The physical mechanism of External Counterpulsation Therapy delivers oxygenated blood to every vital organ of the body where blockage may exist
    • For instance, the arteries leading to your lungs, kidney, liver, brain, and to those in your outer extremities
    • The use of mechanical force increases oxygenated blood flow and has been proven to be helpful in treating patients with diabetes, vascular erectile dysfunction, Alzheimer’s Parkinson’s disease, peripheral vascular disease, movement disorders, kidney dysfunction, memory loss, stroke, diabetic retinopathy and dementia that is vascular in origin
  • EDS (Electro Dermal Screening)
    • A non-invasive assessment tool that can support other diagnostic tools when assessing health issues
    • EDS uses state-of-the-art computer technology to measure the body’s energy system through acupuncture points on the body
    • This provides information that can suggest appropriate actions, or remedies, to support the meridian, and can later be confirmed with conventional testing such as cultures, or blood, skin or urine tests

  • EMI (Electro Meridian Imaging)
    • This allows us to analyze the body’s meridian points
    • EMI helps to know which specific points to focus on when doing acupuncture
    • An EMI must be done before acupuncture with electric to know which points to focus on
  • Acupuncture
    • Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body to stimulate energy points
    • After an EMI (which determines what points on which to focus and what type of acupuncture is best for the patient) Acupuncture can be used to help the patient’s mind and body reach the point of homeostasis
    • Can be used to help treat addiction, infertility, depression, anxiety, gastrointestinal symptoms, headaches/migraines, and a number of other neurological symptoms
  • Auricular (also known as ear acupuncture)
    • Auricular is the stimulation of the external ear for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions in other parts of the body
    • This treatment can be used for treating a wide variety of conditions such as migraines, insomnia, depression, addictions, indigestion, autonomic symptoms, chronic pain, and inflammation
    • Some patients feel immediate results and others take several days to notice
  • Diathermy
    • Diathermy helps to detox the affected areas with electromagnetic currents
    • It increases the blood flow to these areas to assist in the healing process
  • Infrared Sauna
    • Because infrared rays can penetrate deeply into the skin, the muscles and internal organs are heated, and the body responds with a hypothalamic-induced increase in heart volume and rate.
    • This increases the blood flow to muscles, joints, and connective-tissues which can help with healing and reduce pain in injuries, arthritis, muscle spasms, and much more
