Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
Measures your reserve capacity to handle stress on a daily basis. The information this scan provides helps to understand a person’s longevity, how well they will age and how susceptible you are to developing diseases.
Surface Electromyograph (SEMG)
Measures how your motor nerves are working. This is the part of the nervous system controlling muscles & movement. The more your muscles contract…the more electrical activity. We are able to measure the amount of muscle spasms or weakness which may indicate stress to your nervous system. Disturbances in nervous system function will cause an abnormal amount of flow to the muscles on either side of the spine. As a result of this disturbance, the muscles can become weaker, tighter, or fatigued.
Measures how deep the stress has gone into your nervous system and how much it is affecting the organ systems. This helps to identify the cause of your symptoms. Your skin temperature is controlled by the autonomic nervous system which is that part of the nervous system that you don’t have to think about. Such as heart rate, breathing, digestion, and much more. Studies at Johns Hopkins University show that the body temperature on the left and right sides of your spine should be the same. A difference of body temperature on the right or left sides of your spine indicates stress on your autonomic nerves. The test enables us to determine what organs may be affected and the severity of the stress.
The CORE Score
This score combines all three scans to give us one score that reflects how your nervous system is functioning. Your nervous system is the system that controls and coordinates every function of your entire body. That is why this score is so important to determine where you are in your health journey.
