How are allergy symptoms eliminated?
Muscle response testing, otherwise known as applied kinesiology, is used to determine specific sensitivities per patient. This modality of testing is painless and can be performed in any age group. The specific organ system that is most profoundly affected by the sensitive agent is determined as well. The patient is put in contact with the specific allergens during the treatment process. Acupressure is performed on the back, hands, arms, legs and feet. After 15 minutes the treatment is complete.
How are children treated for allergies?
Parents bring children of all ages for allergy symptom elimination. Seated in their parents lap, testing is quick and painless. Socks are a very important tool at Integrative Wellcare, as they are used to house the allergen vials during the treatment session. Please bring big socks! Acupressure is performed and laughter ensues. Many refer to Dr. Cheryl as the tickle doctor and really enjoy coming for visits.
While she is holding the metal block against the vials she is pushing down on my arm. My other arm is touching Fish's skin. I stay "strong" (my arm is normal, I can resist her pushing my arm down) if Fish is not reacting. If she is reacting, my arm will drop when Dr. Cheryl pushes down on it, even though I try not to let her. My muscle becomes "weak". Fish was having a hard day, since she was just getting over her roseola, which is why she doesn't look too happy!
While I won't pretend to know exactly how all of this works, I do know the results and that is good enough for me! She has an amazing 85% or higher success rate! Compared to the 50% success rate with years of traditional allergy shots, I like those odds!
