About Our Services

Cranial Sacral Therapy

CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and improving the functioning of the craniosacral system, which is made up of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. CST was developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.

Using a soft touch, generally no more than 5 grams (about the weight of a nickel), we will release restriction in the craniosacral system, which will improve the functioning of the central nervous system. By encouraging the body's natural healing processes, CST is used more and more as a preventive health method due its ability to improve resistance to disease. It is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
• Migraine Headaches • Infantile Disorders
• Chronic Neck and Back Pain • Chronic Fatigue
• Motor-Coordination Impairments • Emotional Difficulties
• Colic • Stress and Tension-Related Problems
• Autism and Learning Disabilities • Fibromyalgia and Connective Tissue Disorders
• Central Nervous System Disorders • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
• Orthopedic Problems • Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
• Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
• Scoliosis • Post-Surgical Dysfunction

Somato–Emotional Release (SER)

SER is a therapeutic process that builds off of and enhances Cranial Sacral Therapy to help remove the residual effects of trauma from the mind and body. SER works through more than 10 different body components to let your mind and body let go of obstacles that are keeping you from realizing your true health potential. These components include the thoracic inlet, hard palate, and hypoglossal tissues used to locate and release energy cysts. It helps release suppressed emotions, refining listening and comprehension skills, improve palpation and whole-body evaluation skills. Julie Miller has been an Active Practitioner of Cranial Sacral Therapy (adult and pediatrics) since 2003.

Nutritional Response Testing (NRT)

Nutritional Response Testing is a form of Applied Kinesiology built on a solid foundation of key anatomical and physiological principles, providing a fail-safe system enabling the practitioner to resolve at the core level, even the toughest patient health challenges. NRT works like electricity as our body has electric currents or reflexes that can be tested turning those reflexes on and off. This is done utilizing a patient’s arm positioned at a 90 degree angle while the practitioner will ask the patient to match his/her resistance when the arm is gently moved forward and the patient will either resist or not resist. The practitioner is testing the muscles via the person’s resistant or non resistant responses of the body identifying how those patients muscles respond to different stimuli. 

BioMeridian Stress Assessment

Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) is technology that measures the energy at the meridian points, which reveals areas of imbalance. This technology is used in health care practices around the world because it gives practitioners more information to consider when bringing energetic disturbances back into balance. Based on the work of Reinhold Voll, BioMeridian Stress Assessment helps identify what energy channels are clogged or not free-flowing. These energy channels, called meridians, flow through the body and are associated with the body's organs. Imbalances in organs, such as the liver or kidneys, will show up as energetic disturbances in the associated meridians.

Chiropractic Medicine

Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is concerned with human health and prevention of disease paying special attention to spinal biomechanics, and musculoskeletal, neurological, vascular and nutritional relationships. Chiropractic Medicine is a holistic therapy which recognizes the overall health of the patient and the body's innate ability to heal itself from physical, mental, and emotional stress and trauma. The task of the modern chiropractor is not to treat conditions but to remove nerve interfence caused by subluxations so that the body's inherent capacity to heal itself will be able to take over and restore health and homeostasis. This approach has appealed to those wanting a more natural approach to healing for over 100 years. Chiropractic Medicine shares a close bond with applied kinesiology and as such is a great addition to the services we provide at the Naturopathic Center For Wellness.

Chiropractic can benefits people of all ages with the following conditions:

• Neck pain, jaw pain, Whiplash, and lower back pains
• Muscle tension, sprains and fractures
• osteoarthritis, arthritis, and peripheral joint injuries
• bunions, bursitis, tendonitis and sports injuries
• Joint dysfunction and ligament damage
• muscular cramps and chronic fatigue syndrome

Chiropractic Treatments also help with Vascular, Nervous system and Digestive System disorders.

Massage Therapy

Massage as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years throughout the world. Touching is a natural human reaction to pain and stress, and for conveying compassion and support. The benefits of massage range from treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating the growing tensions of our modern hectic lifestyles. Having a massage does more than just relax your body and mind … it can provide specific physiological and psychological benefits. The physical changes massage brings to your body can have a positive effect in many areas of your life. Besides increasing relaxation and decreasing anxiety, massage increases circulation, reduces fatigue, and helps you to sleep better.

Some other benefits of massage include:

• Stimulates the production of feel-good hormones and endorphins
• Lowers hormones that cause stress
• Encourages and helps the release of waste products and toxins from the body
• Lowers heart rate and blood pressure
• Speeds recovery from strenuous exercise or injury
• Prevents formation of painful, rigid bands of tissue (adhesions)
• Increases your good mood and state of relaxation
• It and gives you more energy to handle stressful situations.
