What Is Core Health
Maximizing your recovery so you can get back to living

Our Approach


At Core Health Strategies your personal health care goals are holistically addressed through a variety of approaches including the use of:
  • Frequency Specific Micro-current (FSM)

    Frequency Specific Microcurrent is a new system of treatment using microamperage current and the resonance effects of frequencies on tissues and conditions to create beneficial changes in symptoms and health. Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) seminars teach frequency protocols and discuss the observed effects of frequencies and biological resonance on physical tissue based on clinical observations and research. FSM seminars are NOT about the use of microcurrent or microcurrent devices.
  • Cranial-Sacral Therapy

    Cranial sacral therapy (also known as craniosacral therapy) is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress and pain.

    Cranial sacral therapy seeks to restore the natural position of the bones and can decrease stress from chronic injuries as well as provide relief from migraine headaches, neck and back pain, temporomandibular joint disorder (the inflammation of the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull) and more.

  • Myo-Fascial Release

    Myofascial release is a type of therapy often used to treat myofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. These tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body. The pain usually originates from specific points within your myofascial tissues called “trigger points.”

    Myofascial release focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in the trigger points. It’s not always easy to understand what trigger point is responsible for the pain. Localizing pain to a specific trigger point is very difficult. For that reason, myofascial release is often used over a broad area of muscle and tissue rather than at single points.

  • Essential Oils

    Essential oils are so small in molecular size that they can quickly penetrate the tissues of the skin, are lipid soluble and capable of penetrating cell membranes, even if the membranes have hardened because of oxygen deficiency. According to Jean Valnet, M.D. essential oils can affect every cell in the body within 20 minutes.

    Essential oils have a bio-electrical frequency that is several times greater than the frequency of herbs, food, even the human body, and are made up of the same elements as the human body, which are hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon and sulfur. The oils also contain amino acid which are the building blocks of protein.

  • Traditional Occupational Therapy

    In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from an injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Occupational therapy services typically include:

    • an individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals, 
    • customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and
    • an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.
  • Laser therapy (Class II)

    Laser therapy employs the use of a laser beam to activate certain areas of the body in order to gain very specific types of response. The type of response that can be obtained is dependent upon the strength of the laser beam.

    The stronger the laser beam, the more penetrating it can be into the body. The low-level lasers can penetrate very little into the body because they lack the amplification to penetrate through tissues. As such, their application in the body is very limited. They reach a few millimeters into the skin, and they are able to stimulate the autonomic nervous system of the body to a certain degree.

    • Class II - These are low-power visible lasers that emit above Class I levels but at a radiant power not above 1 mW. The concept is that the human aversion reaction to bright light will protect a person.
  • Core Reintegration

    Core reintegration dates back to 50 years ago, and was introduced in the U.S. during the 1960s to treat neurological disorders and spinal injuries. Today, core stabilization is developed by using stability balls and balance boards to help rehabilitation patients or to incorporated into an individual’s fitness program.

    Everyone, from beginner exerciser, professional athletes to patients recovering from surgery can benefit from core reintegration techniques. Stability balls are versatile conditioning tools and can be used in many different situations, from rehabilitation to performance enhancement.

  • Education/Training

    Our highly trained staff will design a specialized plan of care that is right for you. Through experience, advanced clinical training and clear communication with our patients, we will give you the advantage in recovery.

    We are proud to serve your community and are committed to providing each person an exceptional experience that promotes healing and recovery in a safe, compassionate environment.
