Treatments

Structural Treatments

Every bodily function is under the control of the brain and nervous system, which is protected by the spinal column and vertebrae. When vertebrae become misaligned or do not move correctly, it is called a subluxation. This interferes with the nerve energy transmission to and from the cells, tissues, organs, and muscles. This adversely affects the health of all body systems. The objective is to remove spinal subluxation by implementing non-invasive, gentle adjustments by our chiropractor in Laguna Beach, decreasing the obstructions by restoring motion, and improving functional limitations.

Spinal decompression involves gently lengthening and decompressing the spine, creating healthy negative pressure within the discs. Negative pressure helps reposition bulging discs and puts them back into their natural position, which alleviates pressure placed on nerves and allows for nutrients, oxygen, and fluids to flow into the spine again. While lying on the decompression therapy table, we combine cold low-level laser therapy for greater results and benefits.

At Health in Balance, we harness the incredible power of photonic absorption and cold laser therapy (L.L.L.T.) to bring you cutting-edge healing solutions. Imagine laser light energy seamlessly transforming into chemical energy, setting in motion a remarkable cellular healing journey.

At Health in Balance, we understand that maintaining healthy cells isn't a passive process; it's an active and vital part of staying vibrant and reducing the effects of aging. After all, the health of our cells directly impacts our overall well-being.

When it comes to achieving optimal cell health, fine-tuning is both feasible and essential. It's a process that can slow down the aging process and lower the risk of cell dysfunction, which, when left unaddressed, can lead to disease.

In just a matter of minutes, we offer a revolutionary solution using pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs) to fine-tune your cells. This cutting-edge therapy is not only efficient but has also gained FDA approval through rigorous research and testing.

PEMF treatments can be used proactively to maintain balance in your cells or as part of a holistic approach when imbalances or symptoms are present. In many cases, PEMF treatments, either as a standalone therapy or in conjunction with other treatments, have shown the ability to expedite cellular rebalancing.

The benefits of PEMF therapy are vast and encompass a wide range of health improvements. It's been proven to reduce pain, inflammation, platelet adhesion, and the negative effects of stress on the body. Additionally, it enhances energy levels, circulation, oxygenation of blood and tissues, sleep quality, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, nutrient absorption, cellular detoxification, and the regenerative capacity of your cells.

At Health in Balance, we're excited to introduce you to the transformative benefits of E-Stim, a remarkable therapy that utilizes electrical currents to engage and enhance the power of your muscles. This dynamic process can target specific muscle groups, stimulating contractions of varying intensity. As a result, your muscles become stronger, more relaxed, and better supplied with vital blood flow.

E-Stim is incredibly versatile; it serves multiple purposes on your path to healing and well-being. Not only can it effectively decrease muscle spasms and adhesions, but it also accelerates the overall healing process.

One common form of E-Stim is Interferential Current Therapy (IFC). This approach utilizes four electrodes to generate alternating currents with different frequencies. This unique combination creates a harmonious effect that soothes the nervous system, promoting relaxation and supporting the healing process.

In addition, we offer Microcurrent Therapy, a close relative of E-Stim. This innovative therapy employs minuscule amounts of electrical current, closely mirroring the body's natural electrical impulses. The beauty of Microcurrent Therapy lies in its subtlety; patients often find the sensations barely perceptible.

From digestive issues to neurological challenges, immune system support to cardiovascular health, and even mental and emotional well-being, meridian stimulation has proven its effectiveness. It's a versatile therapy that also aids in lymphatic health, endocrine balance, hormonal harmony, respiratory function, musculoskeletal wellness, reproductive health, skin radiance, and detoxification.

Our approach to meridian stimulation encompasses various techniques, ensuring we cater to your unique needs. We employ lasers, magnets, and heat to stimulate the meridians. Acupressure, performed by hand or finger pressure, is another method we use. "Ti Shen" introduces an instrument for precise stimulation. While acupuncture, involving small needles, is not offered in our practice.

As we stimulate these energy points, we guide your body back into a harmonious state of balance and health. Join us at Health in Balance to experience the transformative potential of Meridian Point Stimulation, a time-tested practice that connects you with your body's innate ability to heal and thrive.
