Applied Kinesiology is a diagnostic tool using manual muscle testing as a neurobio- feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning. It is an excellent adjunct to other means of exams such as orthopedic, neurological, history, lab work and palpation. Done by Dr. Wood, it is entirely gentle, safe and non-invasive. It can find many hidden patterns and dysfunctions in the body that can prevent healing. There is no other technique that can reveal these hidden patterns.
Crainosacral Therapy is a system of gentle touch designed to enhance the functioning of the membranes, tissues, fluids, and bones surrounding or associated with the brain and spinal cord. In it, the therapist holds and applies gentle pressure to the head and pelvis. It is helpful in resolving TMJ, neck and back pain, and chronic fatigue, among others.
The Activator is a chiropractic device used as an alternative to manual manipulation of spine, joints and extremities. It is a softer, gentler treatment that eliminates the need for vigorous twisting and cracking. It is especially effective for gently releasing joint and muscle pain. Safe for people of all ages from kids to the elderly
ArthroStim produces a rapid low force thrust and recoil to target bones tissues providing gentle correction and pain relief with profound positive effects to the nervous system.
Tuning forks can be used for sound and vibrational therapy. Specific frequencies are found to vibrate bone thereby releasing restrictions gently and painlessly, creating relaxation, pain relief, balancing the nervous system and decreasing stress.
The percussor feels like a wonderful massager. In fact, it delivers a vertical galvanic wave (unlike massagers which are horizontal) set at a specific frequency found to cause release and unwinding of the fascia and other soft tissues. It’s like a super gentle deep tissue massage without the pain.
Visceral Manipulation is a specialized technique designed to correct misalignment of organs. A restricted organ can cause up to 80% of musculo- skeletal problems in addition to organ function problems such as GERD, female problems, digestive disturbances.
Dr Wood practices clinical nutrition using symptom survey and toxicity questionnaires, physical nutritional exams, and Applied Kinesiology muscle testing using nutritional test vials and remedies to check organ and body health. She is trained in Nutritional Response Testing (NRT), and Morphogenic Field Testing (MFT) to name a few. She also has the ZYTO Scanner which is a computerized program which reads and assesses the patient’s body for bio-optimal clinical recommendations for nutritional and clinical treatment protocols.
