Dr Kathleen Hartford



Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat and prevent illness for over 23 centuries. It can remedy ailments, alter states of mind, and enhance recuperative power and immunity. It has been determined that human beings are bio-energetic systems. When the balance of this energy is disturbed, pain or illness results.
Meridian treatments corrects the energetic imbalance by encouraging the body’s natural ability to heal itself, without the use of drugs or surgery.

Treatment with acupuncture needles is the most common method of Meridian energy balancing. Other techniques used to balance body energies are: TBM, NET, heat therapy, mild electrical stimulation, laser, magnets, massage, dietary supplements and homeopathic substances.

Neuro Emotional Technique

Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) is a psycho-emotional mind-body therapy based on the physiology of stress-related responses. … NET helps restore balance through the mind-body system by supporting the process of remembering. By recreating the original body’s response to an emotional event we can support energetic balance and emotional release. NET is not a talk therapy but rather a body based therapy that works through the meridian system and supportive homeopathic remedies to reset the body to a balanced state.To learn how chiropractic care could benefit you, please schedule an appointment today, click the link below.

Total Wellness Through Targeting Weak Systems With Nutritional Supplements

Functional Nutrition is a form of medicine that is focused on your body’s ability to function at its highest potential. 

When it comes to effectively utilizing targeted nutrients you want to find a Functional Nutrition Practitioner who can test and prescribe supplements that specifically address your areas of imbalance and stress. This allows you to receive the nutrients you need and avoid any unnecessary expense or worse yet toxicity that can come from too much of a nutrient or inferior nutrients.
