The functional medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. At Power of Life we honor the fact that YOU are the best doctor for YOU. Most frequently a health challenge indicates a decrease in normal function of a system, organ and/or gland in the body.
Chiropractic Adjustments are directed to remove interference to your Nervous System (your “Power of Life”) ultimately increasing your body’s ability to heal itself more efficiently.
Nutrition Response Testing uses Applied Kinesiology (muscle response) to identify which organs/glands are “hungry” for wholefood nutrition (from the earth) to most efficiently heal and function the way they are meant to.
Our practitioners recognize that chemical, physical, and mental/emotional stresses play a part in your health. We have several tools, modalities, and referrals that we utilize and/or recommend to assist you on your path to increased health. We would be so honored to be on your healthcare team.
Neurologically-based Chiropractic Adjustments
Specific spinal adjustments are the hallmark of chiropractic care. An adjustment is a gentle force introduced into the nervous system often via the spine intended to release neurological tension and or torsion.
The adjustment techniques commonly used here at Power of Life involves a light, comfortable dynamic thrust using the hands, as in diversified technique as well as Torque Release Technique (TRT) which is several ounces of a re-coil pressure using a hand held instrument called, an Integrator. Our techniques are very safe and are very effective. Each system has a specific adjusting rationale to restore the nervous system to normal function. This reduces the negative neurologic impact, and increases the body’s ability to adapt to chemical, emotional/mental, and physical stresses. Adjustments, regardless of which system is utilized, are tailored to the practice member’s age and spinal condition.

Nutrition Response Testing (NRT)
Power of Life Alternative & Holistic Health is a nutritionally based practice using the Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) technique. Using this noninvasive, precise and scientific technique we determine the perfect plan for your body and start you on the road to optimal wellness.
The NRT process can be summarized as follows:
First, through an analysis of your body’s reflexes, we help you to determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balanced and improved health. The analysis is done through painless and noninvasive testing of the body’s neurological reflexes and acupressure points. NRT is a study of how the different points on the surface of the body relate to the state of health and to the flow of energy in each and every organ and function of the body.
After determining the nutrients that you need, we make these highly concentrated therapeutic formulations available to you in tablets, capsules, or in powdered form to supplement your current diet. These supplements are different from vitamins, as they are made of whole foods rather than chemicals artificially produced in a lab.
Depending on your individual situation, we may also require that you make some specific changes in your diet and eating habits, as well as in your routines in order to bring about the best possible results.
