Chiropractic Care

We provide spinal correction utilizing gentle chiropractic techniques. When a patient is out of alignment, any function of the body may be compromised and not function at its peak. Chiropractic is more than just restoring motion to a joint or eliminating irritation to a nerve that is causing pain or numbness. Restoring neurological balance helps the entire body function optimally so that it can heal itself, whatever the ailment. Every organ, gland and tissue in your body is controlled by the nervous system; free and clear communication in the body is essential so it can continuously monitor and correct any imbalance. That's what quality chiropractic delivers.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a practice that has been utilized for several thousand years to create homeostasis or a harmony in your body's energetic system that allows you to function in a state of ease. Oftentimes this results in decreased pain, better sleep, improved bowel function or even regulates hormones and improves fertility.

Applied Kinesiology

AK is a very specific way of testing the individual muscles that hold the spine together. If one is not working properly, it is often not do to a lack of exercise but rather a dysfunction of a related nerve, lymphatic, vascular area or related organ. By correcting these problems we can get that muscle working in minutes without exercise programs, thus enabling it to support the spine and better allow our adjustments to work. The side effect is to feel better, whatever your ailment.

Clinical Nutrition

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Are the supplements you are taking working well for YOU? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another or the drugs you may take? Dr. Andreano can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.


 Cold Laser Therapy

During cold laser therapy, photonic stimuli excite the body’s cells and infuse them with energy, which can help to reduce inflammation, regenerate cells and increase blood flow. In other words, cold laser therapy can reduce pain, swelling, and promote healing. The PLUS and WOW factor is our laser can focus in on a particular organ, gland, or tissue that is not healthy and tune it up similar to a guitar that is out of tune.

Muscle Testing

There are many different types of muscle testing, and they all bring a particular value with them. Dr. Andreano practices Applied Kinesiology, Contact Reflex Analysis, Neuro Emotional Technique, Meridian Response Testing, Nutrition Response Testing, and Allergy Elimination Technique. All of these techniques allow him to quickly determine what is happening in your body without expensive medical testing or blood work.

Massage

Therapeutic massage is one of the best ways to relax and to heal. The many benefits of massage therapy include increased relaxation, greater mobility of joints, decreased muscle tightness, and improved circulation. No matter what type of pain or tension you have, a soothing massage will help you relax and that can help you sleep better and enjoy a more positive mood. We have an independent massage therapist who works out of our office, or can come to your home.


Reflexology

Some of the benefits of reflexology are to reduce stress, increase energy, prevent migraines, clean up UTI, speed recovery after injury, reduce depression, and relieve pain. Because the feet and hands help set the tension level for the rest of the body, they are an easy way to interrupt the stress signal and reset homeostasis, the body’s equilibrium. We have an independent reflexologist who works out of our office, or can come to your home.

Contact Reflex Analysis

CRA is a very individualized way of testing your body which allows us to get a very focused point of view of how your body responds to different stressors, whether it be stress on your nervous system, liver, gallbladder, kidneys, spleen, etc. We can find out what is causing the stress in your body and why the malfunction is occurring.


Neuro Emotional Technique

NET is a technique used to determine if emotional stressors are the cause of physical symptoms. Once Dr. Andreano determines if this is a factor in how you are feeling, he can help to relieve your symptoms with tools he has in his office, techniques you can do at home, or homeopathic remedies he can offer you.


Food and Environmental Sensitivity Testing

Dr. Andreano is able to identify specific foods and products that may cause irritation or inflammation to your system and be unhealthy for you, or cause dis-ease. He can perform food and environmental sensitivity testing using various techniques he utilizes at his office. The end result he is aiming for is homeostasis for your body, i.e. a body that is in balance and feeling great.


Weight Loss

Everyone has been on a diet here and there, only to gain the weight back. The key is to make a lifestyle change so that the weight loss is permanent. Oftentimes, it is not only the food you are eating, but hormonal imbalances or even a viruses that may be at play to keep you from losing the weight that you want to lose. Once you have taken care of the potential factors within your body which could be hindering your weight loss, changing the diet and regulating your blood sugar is the real key to revving up your metabolism.
