NeurolinkThe Neurolink procedures provide a powerful step forward to restoring health and to achieving results that are not readily achieved by either standard allopathic or alternative techniques. It is a safe and effective way of integrating brain and body structure and functions. It is a valuable technique for healing people who do not tolerate antibiotics, have multiple allergies, chronic infections, and those suffering from acute and chronic pain. The procedures are quick, easy, painless to the patient and effective for children and adults.
Contact Reflex Analysis-CRACRA is a valuable tool in determining the cause of many symptoms. CRA is a technique of communicating directly with the body through its electrical circuit. The body contains many different reflex points which act as circut breakers in the distribution of electrical energy to the muscles, organs and other tissues. An imbalance or abnormal function in a joint, muscle, organ, gland, or tissues result in either deficiency or excess of energy at the related reflex point. These points can be evaluated by testing a strong muscle. Any point that does not have normal energy flow whill, when touched, act as a circuit breaker resulting in temporary weakness of the muscle being tested.
Bioenergetic Synchronization Technique-BESTThis technique adjusts the nervous system directly. All nervous system interference creates an electrical interference pattern in the brain. This pattern can be corrected through the sensory nervous system. The sensory information transmitted to the brain is altered by gently contacting specific sensory nerve reflex points. This chane in sensory input "breaks-up" and clears nervous system interference patterns. The now balanced nervous system allows a normal flow of information between the brain and the muscles, organs, and other body tissues. Thight muscles relax helping to keep the skeleton in normal alligment. Tissues and organs receive normal nerve input and your entire body functions better as a result.
Neuro-Emotional Technique-NETHealth is a matter of balance. This of health as a triangle, with the three sides being structural, chemical (nutritional), and mental/emotional. If any of the sides of this triangle are out of balance, our health is diminished. Numerous scientific studies confirm that thoughts and emotions directly and dramatically affect our bodies. The NET technique allows the doctor to indentify mental and emotional patterns which are interfering with normal body functions and "disconnect" them. The physical procedure does not involve counseling or "talking things out" and is only done with the patient's premission.
Spinal Manipulative-SMTBones of the skull, spine, or other joints may go out of alignment due to injury or the pull of imbalanced muscles. These bones may need to be gently repositioned. Proper spinal alligment is crucial to ooptimum nerve function. Other joints may also require manipulation to support spinal balance. Dr. Oh uses several different manipulative techniques to give you the best result.
Low Lever Laser TherapyLow Lever Laser Therapy (LLLT) causes tissue to heal faster-muscle, skin and nerve-up to 66% faster according to FDA study. Human cells produce a chemical known as ATP to run the body and heal tissue. All of our body's activities result from the use of ATP, it's like gasoline to a car. LLLT stimulates a micro-structure within the cells called the mitochondria to produce higher ammounts of ATP. Thus with more ATP at the cell level, tissues heal faster, and therefore relief comes quicker. LLLT is painless and individual treatments take 4-7 minutes per area of complaint.
Acne TreatmentThe dermaLaser is the first and only low level laser that is FDA approved for the treatment of acne. The dermaLaser emits two colors, violet and red. The violet laser beam acts to kill acne bacteria, the cause of acne, and the red beam reduces inflamation and accelerated healing of the irritated tissue. The dermaLaser quickly and painlessly treats the root causes of acne, not just the symptoms. It does not affect healthy skin cells, does not irritate the skin and is cost effective.
Nutrition Response Testing-NRTThrough an analysis of your body's reflexes, we help you determine exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring balance and better health. We make these highly concentrated, therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsuls or in powder form to supplement your current diet. That's why they are called "food supplements". Depending on your individual situation, we may also require you to make some specific changes in your diet & eating habits and in your routines in order to achieve the best possible results.
Allergy Desensitization-NAETNAET stands for Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique and was developed by Dr. Devi Nambudipad from Los Angeles California. The technique utilizes Muscle Response Testing, samples of specific substances (e.g. specific foods or enviromental allergens) and acupuncture meridians to determine which reflex points will need to be stimulated in order to reprogram the body's response to that particular item. This is a safe, noninvasive technique, which uses physical stimulation to reflex points along the spine and on the surface of the body to signal the nervous system to reprogram the immune system

What makes you different from other "nutritionists" or "health professionals" in the Pacific Northwest? We use scientific, objective testing in our analysis and recommendations and we see objective results. Some of the diagnostic testing we use are blood testing, toxic and elemental hair testing, food allergy testing and more. We get our great results because we test and we use objective testing methods. How long will it take before I start to see improvement in my health problems? Understand that we don't have a cure for your problem whether it is a rash, MS, diabetes or cancer. Our goal is to get you healthier. Progress is the key and there should be some definite, objective improvement within about 2 months if what we are doing and recommend is going to work. Do you have 2 months? If you can give us 2 months and you really work and do what is needed, it is highly unusual that progress/improvement is not seen. Then the goal is to keep you improving on a consistent basis. Sometimes a 2-3% improvement in 2 months could the best that we can hope for but if you continue to improve 2-3% every 2 months for the next 2-3 years, where will you be? What tests are required? Every person is different. So it really depends on your particular case. How long does it take to get the test results back? If you do the testing through our office, it usually takes no more than two weeks to get all of the test results back and your personalized detailed report completed! Can I get my blood work done through my other doctor? Of course! You may get your blood work done through another doctor. However, it would be prudent for you to check your pricing thoroughly. Most patients find the price will usually be less if you get it through our office. Remember, if you decide to go through your insurance company for reimbursement, the test findings will go on your permanent record and will affect future premiums and ratings. Is chiropractic care safe? Absolutely. Compared to other medical treatments, which include medication and surgery, chiropractic is by far the safest. It is estimated that 140,000 people in the USA die each year from drug-related reactions and nearly 100,000 people die as result of medical errors. Insurance companies who evaluate the risks of all professions, and charge a premium based on the risk the profession poses, rate chiropractors by far as the lowest insurance premium of all health care providers. Even though thousands of chiropractic adjustments are made each year, only a few complaints are registered What is a subluxation? Subluxation refers to a spinal bone (vertebra) that is not in its right position or not moving in its normal range of motion. Misaligned vertebra are irritating nerves and blood vessels, which in turn affects the way your body communicates with your spine. Subluxations are the cause of many pains and dysfunctions in muscles and organs. The body's natural ability to heal itself is greatly improved with the subluxation removed. Does the adjustment hurt? Most chiropractic adjustments are not only virtually painless, they actually feel great and relieving. In cases of a recent injury, inflamed tissue may react to adjustments and cause some discomfort. Application of ice after treatment may soothe any irritation. Will repeated chiropractic adjustment lead to arthritis? There is no evidence to suggest that manipulation of the spine or other chiropractic care can lead to arthritis. On the contrary, chiropractors often care for people with arthritis by maintaining joint health. Motion is life when it comes to joint health. Is there a minimum or maximum age for a person to receive chiropractic care? There is no age excluded from chiropractic care. Even babies can have subluxations, due to the rigors of birth. In Denmark, for example, Chiropractic Doctors are part of the birthing team. Children's subluxations should be treated early, as they interfere with nerves that control developing muscles and organs. of the body consist of cartilage growth centers that the bone grows from. Abnormal stresses on a rapidly developing spine and other bones and joints can cause them to develop abnormally. Your chiropractor can detect these problems while they're easy to correct. Can chiropractors refer patients to other specialists? Chiropractors are part of a network of health-care professionals. Like other doctors, they will make referrals for patients when necessary. Chiropractors are trained to recognize risk factors and signs of disease that are outside their scope of treatments and they will not hesitate to make a referral when it's in a patient's best interest.
