Tools to Assess Your Health

What assessment tools can be used to get to the root of the problem?



AcuGraph brings acupuncture into the 21st century with technology that allows us to analyze and document the energetic status of your acupuncture meridians using a computerized device. The AcuGraph allows patients to watch their body improve over the course of their treatments. Nature's Balance Acupuncture and Wellness center uses AcuGraph to track the effectiveness of your acupuncture treatment.

Saliva Hormone Testing

Saliva Hormone Testing is an accurate and simple way to assess the current levels of circulating hormones in the bloodstream, such as estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, cortisol, etc., in the body. In addition, stool specimens can be analyzed to identify food intolerances and parasites. Learn more about Saliva Hormone Testing here.

Medical Thermal Imaging or Thermography Screening

Medical Thermal Imaging is a totally safe, non-radiation, non-contact and low-cost means to measure the quantity and patterns of heat emitted from the human body. The higher the temperature, the more inflammation found in the body. Thermography is used most often to identify breast disease approximately 7-10 years earlier than more traditional mammography.

ZYTO Technology

While a healthy, balanced body has the capacity to deal with all stressors, an overtaxed or overstressed system eventually experiences difficulty in pushing back. The results of this can be fatigue, pain, weight gain, and susceptibility to illness. Through Galvanic Skin Response, the ZYTO Elite allows us to evaluate the stress of each of your body's systems and pinpoint the correct product or therapy that will bring your body back into balance.

Hip and Low Back Pain

I had a whole laundry list of problems that needed to be addressed and I had seen no less than half a dozen doctors and specialists over that three year span. I can now sleep, drive, climb stairs and dress with ease without pain or medication. Acupuncture has given me my LIFE back!!
