DYNAMIC MUSCLE MAPPING MUSCLE SCAN ANALYSIS
Dynamic muscle mapping is the first step in human analysis testing to determine what percentage of muscle fiber is actively connected to your brain's neurological system. The human body contains over 47 miles of neurological pathways connecting your brain to every part of every muscle fiber in your body. When parts of the muscle are not active for periods of time these pathways go dormant or shut down.
FULL BODY MUSCLE RE-EDUCATION & ACTIVATION STIMULATION
Muscle activation or muscle re-education is the process of re-establishing dormant neurological pathway connections to existing muscle fiber. Using electrical muscle stimulation we are able connect more active muscle fiber efficiently to the brain. By activating muscle fibers while under electrical muscle stimulation we are able to establish more connections and recruit more muscle fiber to actively participate in training and competition.
RUSSIAN STIMULATION MUSCLE GROWTH & tonE
Russian stimulation is a form of high-frequency electrical wave stimulation that uses electricity to contract muscle tissue. After injury or surgery, you may be experiencing muscle weakness. Russian stimulation is used to help improve the contraction of your muscles. Russian currents are alternating currents (AC) at a frequency of 2.5 kHz that are burst modulated at a frequency of 50 Hz with a 50% duty cycle.
MUSCLE & FAT ULTRASOUND TESTING
Muscle ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints throughout the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, trapped nerves, arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. Muscle ultrasound also is very suitable for detecting markedly increased echogenicity and atrophy in affected muscles along with glycogen storage.
Red light bed therapy
Red light therapy (RLT) is a treatment that uses low wavelength 660nm red light to improve and up-regulate your bodies cell production. Red light is commonly to help reduce pain and inflammation. Red light helps the body release nitric oxide, a signaling molecule that helps our cells manage blood pressure levels. According to additional research, LED red light therapy has even more health benefits than potentially lowering blood pressure.
Hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy uses a special pressure chamber that increases the amount of oxygen in your blood so your wounds can heal faster and more efficiently. It can improve your oxygen supply, reduce swelling. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps wound healing by bringing oxygen-rich plasma to tissue starved for oxygen. Wound injuries damage the body's blood vessels, which release fluid that leaks into the tissues and causes swelling.
3-D FULL BODY MEASUREMENT SCAN & ANALYSIS
A 3-D body scan analysis is a 360 degree snapshot of all of the dimensions of your body. As the scanner rotates it takes thousands of data points per second precisely recording every measurement of your bodies dimensions providing you with an exact percentage of improvement scan after scan usually not visible to the eye. 3-D scans also can help determine posture tips or leans if you are favoring a body part after a recent injury.
FULL BODY COMPOSITION MUSCLE & FAT SCAN ANALYSIS
Body composition scans are used to evaluate a person's weight by breaking it down into its core components of body fat, muscle mass, bone density, and body water. A body composition scan provides a comprehensive snapshot of your bodies makeup providing us with the information of what's happening inside your body. Scans may help us determine if your training regiment is actually making you stronger or faster.
DIGESTION & NUTRITIONAL TRAINING ANALYSIS
Your body needs the right fuels to perform at its best. By fuel we mean nutrition and by nutrition we mean proteins, carbohydrates, fats, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Understanding that every athletes body is different and so is their digestive system, we work together with each athlete to identify the most precise combination of these nutritional ingredients that allow your body to perform at its best.
INDIVIDUAL MUSCLE DENSITY SCAN ANALYSIS TESTING
By individually scanning each muscle separately we are able to determine the specific composition of each muscle in relation to the group of muscles surrounding it. Muscles work together to produce movement and when one muscle needs help the neurological commands are sent to the other muscles for help. Training can often overload one muscle more that its supporting muscles leading to an imbalance which can cause an injury.
RESTING METABOLIC RATE ANALYSIS TESTING
Resting metabolic rate testing shows how many calories your body burns at rest, giving you the data you need to plan a weight loss, weight gain, or weight maintenance plan designed to succeed. We will measure the calories your body needs to sustain function while at rest. The RMR test will let you know if your metabolism is slow, normal or fast. It also provides an accurate and scientifically-based calculation of the number of calories you burn each day.
red light blanket WRAP therapy
Recent clinical studies have shown red and near-infrared light therapy can repair muscle, enhance athletic performance, and aid in the recovery process following a workout or injury. Red light therapy can also help the body get more benefits from exercise, both in terms of muscle gain and fat loss. When used intelligently, an athlete can reap rewards in sleep, performance, and potentially enhance soft tissue recovery.
NEURO-COGNITIVE FLOW RATE ANALYSIS TESTING
By measuring neuro-cognitive flow rates in your brain we are able to more closely determine how quickly your brain is able to be trained in new tasks, how long if may take for your brain to concentrate and focus. These tests are the first steps in trying to quantify how long it may take your brain to get into the calm brain state or focus and be ready to perform at the highest levels. Calming your thoughts are critical components when your under stress.
VITAMIN & MINERAL URINE ANALYSIS TESTING
Vitamins and minerals are essential in the bodies rebuilding process and are required in order for the body to make new cells. Testing for vitamin and mineral deficiencies or toxicity should be a part of every athletes regiment, because without the essential building blocks your body is unable to manufacture new red bloods cells to help support muscle repairs or boost your bodies immune system.
FLEX DOCTOR MUSCLE LENGTHENING & RANGE OF MOTION
Using neuromuscular an electrical muscle lengthening device while actively stretching gives you the ability to increase range of motion, lengthen muscles and reduce possible injuries. The Flex Dr. uses a similar electrical current that the body naturally produces which reduces the effects of stimulation and helps your muscles effectively lengthen. Neurologically tune your muscles for peak performance.
NEURO-GOGNITIVE BRAIN TRAINING ANALYSIS
Brain training and neurofeedback devices are relatively new to the realm of wellness therapy. We recognize the importance for an individual to have a calm mind during periods of high stress levels and understanding what is necessary to have mental focus and clarity. Brain training helps establish new neurological connections and open up new pathways for better control of their mind and a calm rain state.
MUSCLE BIOFEEDBACK ANALYSIS TESTING
During a muscle biofeedback session, you're muscles are connected to electrical sensors that allows you receive electrical feedback information about your body's muscles. This feedback helps you make subtle changes in your body, such as relaxing certain muscles, to achieve the results you want. Muscle biofeedback can also help to quantify how much muscle fiber is engaging during exercise.
infrared cocoon sauna pod therapy
Cocoon infrared therapy can assist in detoxification, weight loss, cardiovascular health, skin purification, and stress reduction. Infrared light therapy can also help your body produce more white blood cells, making your immune system stronger and promoting regular biorhythms and better sleep. Infrared cocoon sauna can improve skin complexion and health, and even reduce lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation.
sensory deprivation float tank therapy
The main benefit of using a sensory deprivation tank is to ease mental anxiety and muscle tension. Due to how buoyant the Epsom salt and water solution is, you can fully relax all of your muscles when floating. This is similar to experiencing zero gravity. For best results, we recommend regular sessions, and many clients find that floating once or twice a week provides the most benefits.
whole body vibration therapy
Whole-body vibration three times a week can aid weight loss, burn fat, improve flexibility, enhance blood flow, reduce muscle soreness after exercise, build strength and decrease the stress hormone cortisol. In addition to its beneficial effects on muscle strength, WBV has also been observed to improve balance. Depending on your present health and fitness level, you should begin to see and feel results in about 2 to 6 weeks.
Compression mAssage therapy
Compressions can help increase healing to damaged tissues. Compressions accelerate the healing process by increasing oxygen and nutrients into the tissues. Oxygen and nutrients can work to repair and heal any damaged cells. Increasing the healing process can help speed up recovery. Compression therapy can improve blood circulation in the legs and reduce pain and swelling. In addition, it can help heal ulcers and wounds.
full spectrun infrared sauna therapy
Full spectrum infrared sauna's can detoxify the body as much as seven times more effectively than standard sauna units because they produce heavy natural sweating that moves harmful elements out of the body quite quickly and also mobilizes toxins by inducing a fat based sweat. A full-spectrum infrared sauna, as its name suggests, offers treatments at various levels, known as near, middle, and far. All waves are absorbed into the body like sunlight.
LUNG PERFORMANCE TRAINING & TESTING ANALYSIS
Lung performance training and testing is being used by individuals at all health levels all over the world to improve their breathing, lung capacity, lung strength and anaerobic fitness. Strong, healthy lungs are an essential part of any human body and testing lets us know how they are performing. If testing reveals your lungs are not as strong as they should be training them needs to become part of your daily regiment.
percussion massage therapy
One of the most important benefits of massage guns is the ability to promote recovery after injury or intense activity by improving blood flow to the area. Precisely targeting small and large muscles with deep percussive pressure provides other recovery-related benefits, including decreasing muscle pain and tension. A massage gun doesn't break down fat cells, but accelerates the whole fat breakdown process and helps in getting rid of sagging skin.
pulsed electromagnetic field therapy
PEMF or pulsed electromagnetic field therapy treatment promotes the resolution of inflammation by stimulating the expression of cytokines and metabolic pathways involved in dampening and resolving the inflammatory response. PEMF enhanced peripheral nerve regeneration, and that it may be due to cell proliferation and increase in brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and S100 gene expression.
wet steam sauna therapy
Wet steam can help relieve pain and lower muscle damage. Steam can offer some relief by increasing blood flow to muscles. Steam bath can significantly improve your cardiovascular health. A study of individuals showed that moist heat improved circulation, especially in extremities. Improved circulation can lead to lowered blood pressure and a healthier heart. It can also promote healing of broken skin tissue.
vibroacoustic sound therapy
Vibroacoustic therapy is a new sound technology that uses audible sound vibrations to reduce symptoms, invoke relaxation, and alleviate stress. This technology is developed based on the recognition that external vibration can influence body function. Research demonstrates the effectiveness of vibroacoustic therapy. The sound gently permeates the cells allowing massage from inside as well as out.
high intensity infrared sauna wrap therapy
Infrared body wrap reduces pain and speeds up fitness recovery. The heat that penetrates the body increases blood flow, blood circulation, and acts on painful nerve endings, relaxing pain. Athletes undergo infrared body wrap treatments to treat sore muscles and to speed up recovery after injuries, sprains, and strains. Far infrared heat energy (FIR) that penetrate twice as deep as other heat sources to target toxins and cellulite trapped in pockets below the skin.
science backed weight loss/gain
Losing weight is actually more about gaining your health than it is about losing weight. Scientifically as you begin to lose weight it is more important to understand where you're losing the weight from as opposed how much weight you have lost. Your body is made up of approximately 40-60% water and losing water from dehydration will actually make you more unhealthy.
hydrogen inhalation therapy
Inhaled hydrogen gas (H2) has been shown to have significant protective effects on ischemic organs. Clinical trials abroad have shown promise that treatment of patients suffering from stroke, cardiac arrest, or heart attacks may benefit from inhaling hydrogen gas during the early recovery period. Hydrogen gas inhalation improves lung function and protects established airway inflammation in the allergic pathway associated with the inhibition of oxidative stress.
OXIDATIVE STRESS URINE ANALYSIS TESTING
Being able to track wellness parameters is nothing new and finding out if you should be tracking these items starts with your first test. Using our test you can track your wellness based on 9 parameters: vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, salinity, oxidative stress, pH, hydration, ketones, and protein. If your levels all come back normal, once every 3 months is all that's necessary, but if 1 or more is off you will need to start checking much more frequently.
KETONE PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS TESTING
A ketone test can warn you of a serious diabetes complication called diabetic ketoacidosis, or DKA. An elevated level of this substance in your blood can mean you have very high blood sugar. Unlike fatty acids, ketones can cross the blood-brain barrier and provide energy for your brain in the absence of glucose. Ketosis is a metabolic state in which ketones become an important source of energy for the body and brain.
photobimodulation red/ir light therapy
Photobiomodulation (PBM) describes the use of red or near-infrared (NIR) light to stimulate, heal, and regenerate damaged tissue. Both preconditioning (light delivered to muscles before exercise) and PBM applied after exercise can increase sports performance in athletes. This review covers the effects of PBM on human muscle tissue in clinical trials in volunteers related to sports performance and in athletes.
microcurrent inflamation therapy
Microcurrent stimulates ATP to decrease edema and swelling and increased physical endurance in sports. Some injuries are unavoidable, but by regularly treating your body with micro-current you can strengthen your tissue and improve your health so that your body is less likely to weaken or become injured. Studies have shown that micro-current increases ATP production up to 500%, along with additional benefits.
biowave nerve pain blocking treatment
BioWave is a patented pain blocking technology that is designed to block pain at the source delivering therapeutic electrical signals through the skin that actually prevents pain from reaching the brain. Active electric waves travel beneath the skin directly to the source of the pain. These waves block pain at the nerve, stopping pain messages from traveling through the nervous system to the brain.
fitbody infrared sauna wrap therapy
The FIT Bodywrap system is a revitalizing full body sauna wrap treatment that cocoons you in soothing far infrared heat. Infrared heat works by warming the body from the inside out to raise core body temperature, increase metabolic rate, shrink fat cells, and encourage the production of sweat. You can see benefits for detoxification and pain relief after as little as one session. Weight loss, improved skin, and lower stress levels will take multiple sessions.
cranial electrotherapy anxiety treatment
Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) is a form of neurostimulation that delivers a small, pulsed, alternating current via electrodes on the head. CES is used with the intention of treating a variety of conditions such as anxiety, depression and insomnia. CES has predominantly been used for the relief of symptoms accompanying three clinical disorders: insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
nanovi bioidentical ordered water treatment
The NanoVi® device works by supporting the repair side of the equation. It helps initiate the repair of proteins, DNA, and other cell components so that ongoing free radical damage does not get the upper hand. Recharge wellness offer NanoVi to help clients address oxidative stress damage caused by free radicals. NanoVi™ technology generates precisely the same signal that the body uses to trigger cellular repair.
6 LEAD EKG HEART ANALYSIS TESTING
Having a healthy heart is critical to your health and our quick non-evasive 6 lead EKG is a simple test to check for any heart irregularities. Along with other heart disease preventative measures like eating healthy and exercising, there is another way to check-up on the health of your heart and that is to get an electrocardiogram (commonly referred to as an EKG) as part of your yearly health screening.
