Trigger Point Therapy
30 minute $35; 60 minute – $60; 90 minute – $90
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing “trigger points” in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These “knots” are built up throughout a person’s life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
30 minute – $35; 60 minute – $60; 90 minute – $90
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
60 minute – $70; 90 minute – $100
Throughout pregnancy, labor, and after, the body undergoes physical, psychological, and emotional changes that can produce stress and pain. Massage therapy eases the aches and strains using specific techniques and movements which are designed to help relieve low back pain, swelling of hands and feet, headaches, calf cramps, insomnia, sciatic pain, sinus congestion, along with much of the discomfort of labor. The general relaxation that accompanies massage can improve the quality of rest during the day and sleep at night, especially in the third trimester.

Nutritional microscopy is the science of qualitative analysis for the purpose of evaluating health at the cellular level. Using a high-powered, Darkfield microscope to evaluate the shapes and properties of an individual’s blood cells can be very revealing. This service allows you to view the “terrain” of the blood to catch a glimpse of the overall “toxic load” and consequent state of health. Often things are noticed that are never seen using traditional methods of blood screening.
There are 20-30 trillion red blood cells in the human body. It is fascinating to think that a person’s path to wellness can be found in just a few drops. Plan to spend a full hour so that we can fully explore the shapes and movement of the blood. Further, it is recommended that you do not eat food 2-hours prior to the appointment.
Use the tools and information provided to get your health on the right path! We believe that if you give your body what it needs – it will heal itself!
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis – $124
Have you ever wondered ……?
Am I getting enough essential vitamins and minerals?
Even though I take supplements, is my body assimilating them?
Am I taking too much of a particular nutrient?
Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is an analytical test which measures the mineral content of the hair and your heavy metal exposure. Test results reflect how much of these elements are in your tissues and provide a vivid picture of our internal environment, that very few tests can reveal. The sampled hair, obtained by cutting new growth hair, at the nape of the neck, is prepared in a licensed clinical laboratory using highly sophisticated detection equipment and methods to achieve the most accurate and precise results.
Minerals interact not only with each other but also with vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Minerals are needed to make and activate enzymes and without the proper balance, digestion and all other bodily functions are impaired. Minerals are needed to manufacture hormones and direct their activity throughout the body. Without proper mineral balance, hormone levels and activity diminish.
Therefore, evaluating mineral status provides a good picture of our overall health. Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) is the perfect complement to Microscopic blood viewing (see the information on our “Live / Dried Blood Demonstration”).

Every organ of the body is affected by the health of the colon. Colon Hydrotherapy is a gentle method of cleansing the entire colon without chemicals or drugs. The individual lies comfortably on the table and a small, disposable tube is inserted into the rectum. The therapist then monitors the temperature and pressure of filtered water that is infused into and out of the colon. The waste material in the colon turns into comfortable loose excrement that is eliminated through the tubes and out the drain line avoiding any offensive odor and maintaining the dignity of the individual. The system used is a “closed” system, very high-tech and sanitary.
Colon hydrotherapy encourages the restoration of the colon’s natural function by strengthening peristalsis. Multiple sessions will help to eliminate fecal matter which may have been lodged in the colon for weeks, months, or even years. The average American stores anywhere from 3-20 pounds of matter in the body. Colon Hydrotherapy is a great jump start to feeling better and losing weight.
$ 20 Per Colon Hydrotherapy Session
This ancient detoxification method of “Cupping” is an optional add-on service to any Colon Hydrotherapy session. Linda places soft silicone cups along the meridians of the colon to increase the amount of excrement output during a Colon Hydrotherapy session.
Aqua Chi Footbath
Aqua Chi Footbath is a relaxing and easy way to promote detoxification. Only $25 for a 30-minute session.
Aqua Chi Footbaths are a holistic therapy recommended for all ages as a way to gently detoxify the body. Think of the footbath as your personal ‘hot spring’. Using water as its conductor, the Aqua Chi footbath charges the body’s battery.
Some of the best results reported have been with: detoxification, reduced inflammation, improved liver, kidney and colon function; as well as improved sleeping patterns. Most feel relaxed and have a higher sense of clarity. The real benefits seem to be cumulative with each aqua chi footbath session.
One of the most visual effects in the Aqua-Chi footbath is the release of toxins and foreign material trapped in the dermal layers (skin) of the users. The body releases toxins through the pores on the skin. The sole of each foot contains over 2000 pores, which means the feet are a large area for releasing toxins. This becomes very noticeable by the level of discoloration of the water. The water will vary in color from slightly orange to dark brown. Not to worry. These different colors are simply a signal that your body is releasing the toxins and foreign material. The abundance of toxins that we have in accumulated in our bodies makes it necessary to find a way to detoxify. The Aqua Chi footbath is an easy way to do this. We invite you to give it a try! An ideal therapy for children, adults and seniors. Call for an appointment.
Blood Typing – $35
“ …..the secret to healthy, vigorous, and disease-free living might be as simple as knowing your blood type.” – Dr. D’Adamo
Within just a few minutes, find out your blood type: A, B, AB or O and either positive or negative. You will also receive a free food listing for your blood type which details how foods act in the body: medicinal, neutral or harmful.
Vitamin D-3 Testing – $79
Measuring your Vitamin D3 level may be the single most important test you, and your children, can have. Optimal levels of Vitamin D3 are 50-80 ng/ml. State of the art Vitamin D3 testing is now available using a finger prick. It is important to check blood levels because it is the only way to know if you are taking enough Vitamin D3. When Vitamin D3 levels are optimized, you can significantly reduce the risk for many illnesses including:
- 17 varieties of cancer – including breast, prostate and colon
- Heart disease
- Chronic pain
- Multiple Sclerosis
- H1N1 and Seasonal flu
Vitamin D3 is an amazingly effective anti-microbial agent, producing 200 to 300 different anti-microbial peptides in your body that kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. Once your levels are optimized – meaning you may need to take higher amounts to get there – it is generally recommended at 35 IU per pound of body weight. Vitamin D-3 levels plummet up to 50% during the winter months, so it is recommended to double the amount you need to take for optimization.
Omega-3 Index Testing – $79
The target range for Omega-3s is >8%. What’s your percentage? The ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids is 1:1. Unfortunately, that ratio for the typical American diet is 25:1. Omega-6 fatty acids promote inflammation and cause us to store body fat. Toxic inflammation overload spreads throughout the body, destroying your heart health, brain function, accelerating aging and increasing joint pain and weight gain. Omega-3s are anti-inflammatory, anti- aging and helps us to burn body fat.
To rebalance your omega ratios and fight off inflammation, proactively increase your intake of Omega- 3s daily, dramatically reduce your intake of Omega-6s and limit your intake of carbohydrates. You can balance your body in just 120 days by supplementing with one of our high quality fish oils. For many Americans, Omega-3 fats are even more important to your health than taking a multi-vitamin. Call to schedule your Omega-3 Index test.
What’s Your Iodine Level?
Stop in for a free “skin patch test” and free questionnaire. Iodine is a major component to optimal health!
Oxygen feeds the body, supports the immune system, destroys toxic substances and promotes new cell growth. Oxygen is our primary source of energy; it is the fuel required by the body for the proper operation of all major systems. Oxygen is essential. Usually we get all the oxygen we need from breathing atmospheric air. Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) is a form of oxygen therapy intended to make more oxygen available to the body.
Our oxygen therapy safely increases the body’s oxygen uptake by raising the barometric pressure. Hyperbaric chambers are simply enclosures, which can be pressurized to allow the person inside to experience atmospheric pressures greater than normal environmental pressures. Hyperbaria is based on Henry’s laws of physics, which states that more gas is dissolved in a liquid by increasing the pressure of the gas.
Under normal circumstances, only the red blood cells carry oxygen. Since oxygen therapy forces oxygen into the body fluids, under pressure, oxygen dissolves into all of the body’s fluids, including the plasma, the lymph, the synovial (joint) fluid and the cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. These fluids can carry the extra oxygen even to areas where circulation is poor (or blocked), either by trickling past blockages or by seeping into the affected area.
