We know that a lot of our patients are very active, or have kids and grand kids that are involved in sports. This this post by Skinny Mom on keniso tape addresses its use in treating and preventing athletic injuries.
Paul Coker’s article on kinesio taping is a great one to check out if you have any questions about kinesio taping and whether or not it’s something you should use. He cleanly and clearly addresses what it is about the material that makes it so effective. Coker also address several misconceptions and lists some of the conditions that kinesio tape helps relieve.
Bring a food or money donation on Halloween and get a FREE Adjustment!
Our office is doing a food drive for Halloween Day! We will be giving free adjustments to anyone who brings a food or money donation for the food bank. This is a great opportunity for anyone who is hurting or needs an adjustment badly and cannot afford it at this time. Just bring a can of food and get fixed up for free! Bring your family, friends, even your dog – just make sure to bring a donation for anyone who wants to be adjusted.
We are going to make a party out of it and have good food and our staff gets to dress up in costumes.
Our hope is to see old and new friends alike and have truck loads of donations at the end of the day, so make sure you tell all your friends and family!
We hope to see you here on the 31st and Happy Halloween!
Scientists at the University of Bristol have made a fantastic breakthrough in the fight against debilitating autoimmune diseases such as MS, Type 1 Diabetes, and others by revealing how to stop cells attacking healthy body tissue. Rather than the body’s immune system attacking its own tissue, researchers have discovered how cells change from being aggressive to protecting against such diseases.
“Scientists were able to selectively target the cells that cause autoimmune disease by dampening down their aggression against the body’s own tissues while converting them into cells capable of protecting against disease.
This type of conversion has been previously applied to allergies, known as ‘allergic desensitisation’, but its application to autoimmune diseases has only been appreciated recently.
The Bristol group has now revealed how the administration of fragments of the proteins that are normally the target for attack leads to correction of the autoimmune response.
Most importantly, their work reveals that effective treatment is achieved by gradually increasing the dose of antigenic fragment injected.”
We hope that this latest insight into how the human body functions will lead to the widespread use of this therapy as treatment for many autoimmune disorders.
You can find the article and more on the subject on the website of the University of Bristol.

- Removal of Fat-Soluble & Heavy Metal Toxins: Most effective far infrared and full spectrum therapy for natural, non-invasive cellular detoxification – only saunas clinically shown to raise core temperature. Quickly expels toxins hidden in fat-soluble cells. Toxins are released through the skin before they reach major organs.
- Increased Quality & Duration of Sleep: Our saunas’ Acoustic Resonance Therapy (A.R.T) provides a calming environment to reduce stimuli and induce relaxation for better sleep. In this case, take your sauna session before you go to bed.
- Pain Relief: Far Infrared heat increases blood circulation by penetrating deep into the body’s joints, muscles and tissues to allow more oxygen to reach injured areas and reduce inflammation.
- Non-Invasive, Natural Treatment: Offers a whole body treatment without surgery or injections. Studies show that infrared sauna sessions can help speed the effects of antibiotics to see faster results and relief of symptoms.

- Depression: The circulation, relaxation and detoxification that our saunas provide can be uplifting to your overall state of mind.
- Boost Immunity: Increased blood circulation allows more toxins to be released from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in recovery and boost immunity to help battle current symptoms.
- Cold Intolerance: Proven 95-99% effective, Solocarbon heaters increase core body temperature to alleviate lower body temperatures.
- Sound Sensitivity: Sunlighten saunas provide a soothing atmosphere for those with hyperacusis to find relief. A.R.T. balances brainwaves, bringing the body to a deeper state of relaxation.
- Improved Circulation: Increases blood flow to reduce the body’s hold on toxic metals and helps get nutrients where they need to go. Also increases body temperature to keep hands and feet warm.
- Weight Loss: A 30 minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 200-600 calories! As the body works to cool itself while using an infrared sauna, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Sunlighten’s infrared heat therapy raises core body temperature causing passive cardiovascular conditioning. Your body’s natural response to infrared heat therapy is to increase circulation and sweat. Check out the results with a heart rate monitor and you will be amazed.
- Relaxation for the Whole Family: Creates a sanctuary the whole family can benefit from detoxification, heart health, weight loss, pain relief, cell health and anti-aging.
- Cancer Therapy: Far Infrared Therapy has been applied as Cancer Treatment Worldwide for 20 years. Far Infrared Saunas Increase the Production of White Blood Cells, Killer T-Cells, and Interferon which have been shown to Fight Cancer Cell Growth.
- Organic Skin Care: Infrared Sauna Treatments dramatically Renew Elasticin-Collagen Tissues while Crow’s Feet, Forehead Lines, Wrinkles, Age Spots, Scars, Varicose Veins and Stretch Marks Naturally Fade Away. Look Younger while you Cleanse Your Body from the Inside Out.
- Bullet proof Your Immune: Increased Production of White Blood Cells and Toxin Removal through Sweating combines to Improve Immunity against Chronic Infections, Flu, Sinus, Allergy Symptoms, Germs and Bacteria. Infrared Heat causes the body to produce Special Heat Shock Proteins, which are Powerful Immune System Stimulators.
