Modalities, Methods, Techniques


Designed for Thriving is a Private Membership Association. Our trained professionals are not doctors. We do not diagnose or prescribe. We specialize in identifying the underlying stress that contributes to almost all illness and dis-ease and resolving that stress by listening to the body’s communication system and determining what it needs in order to heal.  We address the needs of the whole you, proactively and effectively to resolve underlying stress, increase wellness and reduce the need for invasive chemicals and procedures when it it makes sense to do so. Our approach compliments all healthcare journeys, is cost effective and deeply insightful. It requires you to be engaged, committed and re-educated while moving fully from a healing process into a maintenance program.

Our individualized services are intelligently prioritized in order to most effectively utilize your resources. This is a relationship based on conscious conversation. It is vital to know what you care about in order to meet your needs and accomplish your desires. Humble clarity amongst equals facilitates profound healing. There is a time an place for all health care options, therefore we start by asking you this fundamental question: Do you want to keep managing your symptoms or do you want to resolve the underlying issue?

When you answer this, we know where to begin and can create a realistic plan to get you there based on your level of commitment. We talk about willingness and potential stressors or limitations that could affect your success and adjust accordingly.  We then start discussing specifics like stress and pain levels, mobility assessments and structural restrictions.

All individual therapies offered at a flat hourly rate giving you flexibility in your session to access a variety of techniques.  Contact us to discuss your ideal healing solutions and schedule an appointment.

applied neurology

Back to Top

Healthy cellular communication pathways are key because as long as you have impaired pathways, you can contribute a wheelbarrow full of nutrition and get a thimble full of benefit. The same is true for efforts like: exercise, massage, chiropractic, healthy eating, and sleep.

Applied Neurology works on addressing one of the top offenders when in comes to impaired cellular communication: Brain Injury & Head Trauma.

Many people don’t think they fit into the brain injury category, but we have yet to find a single individual completely clear without some need for restoration. And the great thing is that once healthy communication has been restored, that becomes your body’s New Normal. Like rewriting a corrupted computer file.

 
 

AURICULOTHERAPY

Back to Top

We use a laser to stimulate specific points on the outer ear that correspond to specific parts of the body. Stimulating these points can actually help restore balance to the body systems by calming overactive functions and increasing under-active ones. Research has shown that specific patterns of stimulation are effective in treating certain conditions including anxiety and smoking cessation. At Designed For Thriving, Auriculotherapy does not involve the use of needles, but instead uses a laser probe. 

 
 

Customized Nutrient Support

Back to Top

Your body needs real fuel, intelligently selected, at the correct time. We design nutrient programs for maintaining health in daily life and/or addressing key concerns to raise your level of health. We craft nutrient schedules using: homeopathy which reminds the body to do what it already knows how to do; herbs and restoratives to build foundational health; minerals that catalyze enzymes and support all biochemical function; and essential enzymes that ensure dynamic homeostasis while cleaning everything up.

Chronic stiff muscles and structural misalignments are deeply affected by restrictions in the endless web of fascia surrounding them. The fascia is the boss, so, we address this first.

In terms of body work, if you are happy with your level of health and function, schedule an appointment whenever you like.  If you are looking to raise your level of health then you must keep your appointments within 14 days of each other in order to build on the previous session.

 
 

Clinical Detox

Back to Top

Opening Channels Program– This is a safe and effective place for the average person to start.  It is a well-thought-out program from Energetix that has delivered excellent results. It is a 30-day program and doesn't require strenuous shifts in life-style or elimination diets.

colon Hydrotherapy

Back to Top

Are you seeking to metabolize the sweetness of life? Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, effective way of removing waste from the colon without the use of drugs…and so much more!

We introduce temperature regulated, filtered and structured Lake Superior water into the colon softening waste to be evacuated through the body's natural peristalsis.

Our colonics are discrete and relaxing, and are performed while lying on the side or back depending on personal comfort. The colon hydrotherapist facilitates the entire session, which is a series of "fills" and "releases" – filtered, structured water is gently directed into the colon up to the level of comfort, then the waste is released through the body's natural peristalsis. Basic body-work and massage techniques are utilized throughout the session to calm the mind and engage the body. A session can be anywhere from 30-45 minutes on the table.

 
 

Electro-Magnetic Field & Geopathic Stress

Back to Top

Electrical pollution (EMF stress) and natural earth energies (Geopathic stress) that are disruptive to the body's natural polarity required to maintain health. When your environment is stable you can build, heal and conserve energy.

Home/Office Remediation– All health is improved by a stable, healthy electrical environment. We can do on-site or in-house consultation. 

Cars/Technology Remediation– This is especially important for those who constantly carry a cell phone, work in front of a computer, or spend a ton of time in the car.

Clay & Aroma Therapies– do wonders

Copper Foot Bath– gives the benefits of a full-body submersion in ionized water to detoxify and boost the cellular membrane or brain of the cell, and heal

Listening & Consultation

Back to Top

For years I was diagnosed with learning challenges. In my adult life, I learned that my brain actually processes information differently, which allows me to listen between the words and function as an intuitive strategist. It is the same talent– applied differently– in alignment with my open heart & path of service.

Life Re-Alignment– Learn to thrive, inwardly focused, trusting yourself, your purpose & your ability. 

Relationship Re-Alignment–Learn to thrive together by becoming conscious of the deeper currents influencing your relationship.

Conscious Parenting– Communicate clearly and consciously as you steward your children in support of their joy & thriving.

Emotional Alchemy– Transforming the current emotional landscape into your sacred home, inwardly focused, divinely inspired. 

Environmental Alchemy– Our external world invariably reflects the state of our internal world. By addressing your external world of stress, clutter, and a lack of functionality in our environment is a very effective way of shifting your internal world and raising your overall level of health. 

 
 

Neuro Cranial Integration (NCI)

Back to Top

The treatment goals of NCi are to align the dura matter and and cranial bones thereby take tension off the nervous system to allow the body to heal itself. This is a holistic method as it improves brain and body as a whole rather than targeting specific conditions.

 
 

pemf therapy

Back to Top

PEMF (Pulsating Electromagnetic Field) Therapy is one of the fastest growing methods of natural pain relief. This safe and effective modality is used for accelerated therapeutic purposes with a wide range of applications. Clients who have found benefit from this therapy include those who have experienced injuries, chronic pain, neurological conditions, and more. Clinical experiments have shown that PEMF therapy can reduce pain sensations almost immediately. 

PEMFs are critical for human metabolism and PEMF therapy can act as a catalyst and battery recharger for the human cells. During a PEMF session, the pulsating field reaches the cells, exercising the cell membranes and increasing flexibility and vitality. When the cells expand, fresh nutrients and oxygen can rush into the cells. When the cells contract, toxins can be pushed out. As a result, the cells are cleansed and refreshed. 

At Designed For Thriving, we find that chronic stress in the endocrine system, especially the adrenal glands (the body’s “battery pack”), becomes electrically depleted leading to a condition commonly called “burn out”. We often use our PEMF technology to stimulate points on the body supporting specific aspects such as the adrenals, for the purposes of restoring vitality. When we do this, the body can heal itself. 

 
 

Quantum Biofeedback

Back to Top

For me, this technology was a game-changer. It intelligently seeks out what needs to be resolved and offers the mechanism required for resolution. It can assess and address all aspects of health. It takes it s cues from your brain and body's communication system.  It is self correcting and an objective measure to ensure the most effective therapy possible.  It is the single-most effective tool I have used to resolve major stress, mental health issues, addictions, and old trauma.
