Although spinal manipulations applied to the neck and back are the primary focus of chiropractic, Dr. Goltl's techniques only use light pressure to correct bone displacements. There are hundreds of chiropractic-based techniques varying among practitioners. Dr. Goltl chooses to use the most gentle, effective, and cutting-edge techniques available.

Applied Kinesiology is a non-invasive system that evaluates structural, chemical, and mental aspects of health using muscle testing. Results of the muscle testing are confirmed with palpation, orthopedic examinations, and neurological evaluation. Goals set forth by the International College of Applied Kinesiology, are to provide a non-equipment-intensive assessment of the patient's functional health status.

  • Restore postural balance, correct impaired gait, improve range of motion.
  • Restore normal neuromuscular function.
  • Achieve balance of endocrine, immune, digestive, and other internal functions.
  • Permit early intervention in degenerative diseases.

Although weakness in a specific muscle is said to be a clue to possible problems in its associated organ or gland; practitioners do not claim that the results are diagnostically definitive. They say that improper performance in a manual muscle test may be due to nerve dysfunction, nutritional inadequacy, toxic chemicals, abnormal circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord, tension in the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, poor circulation of blood or lymph fluid, or "meridian system imbalance."

Sacro Occipital Technique is a method of normalizing the relationship between the foundation of the spine and the top of the spine. It is this relationship and how the bones relate to one another, which is vital in maintaining normal function of the brain and spinal cord.

Acupuncture Meridian Therapy assesses the flow and distribution of vital energy within its pathways, known as meridians and channels. The acupuncturist is able to influence health and sickness by stimulating certain areas along these meridians. Dr. Goltl does not use needles, instead uses muscle testing to locate and monitor the correction of each acupuncture point as he touches them with light pressure.

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathic remedies are a system of medicine based the principles of "like cures like". For example, if the symptoms of your cold are similar to symptoms presented after ingesting a large amount of mercury, then mercury would be your homeopathic remedy. The remedy is taken in an extremely dilute form; normally one part of the remedy to around 1,000,000,000,000 parts of water.

Similar principles form the basis of conventional allergy treatment, where the allergic substance is given in a small dose. In vaccines, an impotent form of the virus is given to bolster the immune system against that particular virus.

Why use Homeopathics?

Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. Its growth in popularity in the United States has been around 25 to 50 percent a year throughout the last decade.

This success is fueled by several factors:

  • Homeopathy is extremely effective. When the correct remedy is taken, results can be rapid, complete and permanent.
  • Homeopathy is completely safe. Even babies and pregnant women can use Homeopathy without the danger of side effects. Homeopathic remedies can also be taken alongside other medication without producing unwanted side effects.
  • Homeopathy is natural. Homeopathic remedies are normally based on natural ingredients.
  • Homeopathy works in harmony with your immune system, unlike some conventional medicines which suppress the immune system. (For example, cough medicines suppress the cough reflex, which is your body's attempt to clear the lungs)
  • Homeopathic remedies are not addictive - once relief is felt, you should stop taking them. If no relief is felt, you are probably taking the wrong homeopathic remedy.
  • Homeopathy is holistic. It treats all the symptoms as one, which in practical terms means that it addresses the cause, not the symptoms. This often means that symptoms tackled with Homeopathy do not recur.

Dr. Goltl uses a combination of patient history, clinical findings, and testing through Applied Kinesiology to determine the proper dietary and supplemental needs.

Microcurrent therapy uses extremely low-level electrical currents (microcurrents) to treat nerve and muscle pain, inflammation and other health challenges. Each tissue type in your body has its own signature electrical frequency, which may be disrupted by injury or disease. Microcurrent therapy simply restores normal frequencies within the cells, resulting in remarkable improvements in pain, inflammation and function.

At the cellular level, microcurrent therapy stimulates a dramatic increase in ATP, the energy that fuels all biochemical functions in the body. It also bumps up protein synthesis, which is necessary for tissue repair. The ensuing enhancement in blood flow and decrease in inflammation translates into reductions in pain and muscle spasms, as well as increased range of motion.

When you undergo microcurrent therapy, electrodes are placed at strategic locations to direct the currents to the targeted tissues.

Unlike the more familiar TENS units, which also use electrical currents to relieve pain, microcurrents are gentle, so you feel no shock-like sensations.
