OMT is the unique hands-on manual medicine utilized by DOs. There are over 30 different Osteopathic Techniques. Dr. Croft has a very eclectic style. She uses a wide variety of techniques in an individualized way for each patient. Some of the techniques are very subtle connecting with the inherent healing forces (the non-material fields that A. T. Still called “the unnamed forces of healing”) within each person and utilize gentle pressure, while other techniques are more physical. OMT is not painful. OMT is a restorative tool. It can re-establish normal arterial, venous, and lymphatic flow by relieving obstructions; resolve fascial and connective tissue strains; helps coordinate the normal functioning of the nervous system; directly treats dysfunctions relating to the organs or viscera; and stimulates the immune system.
Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle Osteopathic Technique that connects with your subtle inherent healing forces through a detailed contact with the cranial bones & membranes. To utilize Cranial Osteopathy effectively, one must have excellent knowledge of neuroanatomy & cranial bone structure and function. For some problems the entire treatment is a finely tuned cranial adjustment. For other issues, Cranial Osteopathy complements treatment.

ETMS Cancer Care Protocols
The ETMS model, unlike the modern medical model but similar to functional medicine, examines the factors that allow cancer to arise. We evaluate genetics, environmental, nutritional, social, emotional and spiritual factors. Through fingerprinting a tumor, treatments can be customized and side effects diminished or avoided. The primary goal is to bring the body into harmonious balance with non/low-toxic, target-specific, disease-suppressing agents. And to strengthen the immune system, raise stamina, lower inflammation, inhibit metastasis, induce cancer cell suicide, turn off oncogenes and turn on tumor suppressor genes, and reduce multidrug/radiation resistance from developing. This is achieved through herbal and nutritional formulations, dietary therapeutics, and other specific therapies as indicated. Donnie Yance.
Custom Weightloss Programs
Are you counting calories to lose weight? The majority of weight loss programs have this principle at their core. If you lower caloric intake and increase your activity level, you will lose weight. Is this true? Absolutely! The common solution is to either plan a diet restricting calories or provide pre-packaged food from a box. Here is the problem regardless which path you take to get there: You will gain your lost weight right back. As you lower your caloric intake, your metabolism slows. Your body needs calories to fuel it so it will burn fat, muscle, etc. during this restriction. The problem appears after the weight is lost. Eventually you will go back to eating a normal & to many of your same habits. Since your metabolism has nearly bottomed out though, it can’t process all the food you begin to eat. Those calories get stored right back as fat.
Calories are not the key to losing weight. The most effective way to lose fat is balancing hormones, neurotransmitters, detoxifying the body, balancing nutritional deficiencies & gut flora, restorative sleep, & connecting with your mind chatter about your weight & relationship with food. If you need help just ask!
You can succeed! And we're here to help.
