Hypnotherapy is widely endorsed as a treatment for habit breaking, stress related issues, and for a range of long-term conditions. The process itself aims to alter our state of consciousness in a way that relaxes the conscious portion of the mind while simultaneously stimulating and focusing the subconscious portion. This heightened state of awareness – reached using skilled relaxation techniques – allows the therapist to then help you change your life for the better.

Here at The Vitality Center our speech pathologists or therapists are experienced with far more than correcting pronunciation difficulties, and helping people who stutter to speak more fluently. In fact, our speech-language pathologists are concerned with a broad scope of speech, language, swallowing, and voice issues involving communication, some of which are:Word-finding issues, social communication difficulties involving how people communicate ideas with others, structural language impairments, literacy impairments, voice difficulties, and cognitive impairments to the extent that they interfere with communication.

In psychotherapy, trained therapists apply scientifically validated procedures to help people develop healthier, more effective habits. There are several approaches to psychotherapy — including cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal and other kinds of talk therapy — that help individuals work through their problems.
Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and a psychotherapist. Grounded in dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral and nonjudgmental. You and your psychotherapist will work together to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best.
B.R.I.D.G.E.S. Neurosensory Integration is The Vitality Center’s in-house, full-spectrum system for helping those with sensory processing issues by combining chiropractic care, sensory integration exercises and maneuvers, dietary changes and nutritional support, and Interactive Metronome training to help create new pathways in the brain and to improve and make more efficient existing pathways. By relieving the chemical and physical stresses on the nervous system and teaching the system to integrate itself better, the B.R.I.D.G.E.S. program can help with a numerous issues, such as ADD/ADHD, Autism, post-stroke recovery, focus and attention, and memory issues, and can even be used for peak performance both scholastically and academically.
Recently, several new techniques have become available to chiropractors, including neurofeedback modalities like Interactive Metronome®. Synchronizing the brain and body’s “internal clock” allows nerve signals to travel more effectively and efficiently through the brain’s functional networks.
Interactive Metronome® is a computerized metronome where a patient will use hand and/or foot sensors to keep rhythm with the beat. The system will measure within milliseconds how early or late someone is, and then use visual and audible cues to synchronize the patient’s brain functional networks, thus causing the neurons to fire efficiently and rhythmically. With this greater efficiency comes faster communication, improved processing and more fluid movement.
