Therapy based on the theory that a person’s health is determined by the condition of their musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

Chiropractors believe that misaligned vertebrae impair the nervous system, thereby lowering defenses and contributing to disease. We contend that good health requires vertebrae to be in proper alignment - a goal attainable only through spinal adjustments, the crux of chiropractic care.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for certain types of chronic back pain. Mechanical decompression works by slowly and gently stretching the spine, taking pressure off compressed discs and vertebrae. Spinal decompression is one of the most exciting medical treatments developed in many years, since it demonstrates good statistical results for long term pain relief.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy’s goal is to maintain and restore maximum movement and functional ability throughout the lifespan. This is especially true in circumstances where movement and function are threatened by the process of ageing or that of injury disease. Full and functional movement are at the heart of what it means to be healthy.

Physical therapy is concerned with identifying and maximising movement potential, within the spheres of promotion, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. The physical therapists’ distinctive view of the body and its movement needs and potential is central to determining a diagnosis. This will vary in relation to whether physical therapy is concerned with health promotion, prevention, treatment or rehabilitation.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapists work to alleviate pain, relieve stress, and improve the health and well being of their clients by mobilizing the soft tissue including skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.

Massage therapy is defined as the manual manipulation or mobilization to affect normalization of the soft tissue of the human body. It may be provided in response to a physicians prescription or in conjunction with other therapeutic modalities.

Laser Therapy

Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or “cold laser therapy” is on track to become one of the most important developments in life sciences since the discovery of penicillin. LLLT dramatically reduces musculoskeletal pain and inflammation as well as promoting tissue repair wherever the laser beam is applied. This is not a heat treatment, the effects are photochemical. One of the primary actions is on mitochondrial production of ATP, therefore potentially affecting any eukaryotic cell in the body.

Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional counseling covers a wide range of assessments and philosophies regarding the quality of nutrition in a diet. Nutritionists offer education in nutritional facts, eating habits, nutrients, allergies, and weight loss. They work with individuals to develop dietary patterns that suits their lifestyle as well as their needs.

Back Bay Wellness offers the following therapies that include nutritional counseling within their philosophies of healing.

  • Nutritional Therapeutics using laboratory Mineral Hair Analysis recognizes the nervous system’s responses to metabolic dysfunctions. This therapy considers how nutrition influences the biochemical and endocrine systems and develops synergistically formulated supplements for specific metabolic types to detoxify and reinstate proper balance.
  • Clinical Nutrition tends to stress whole natural foods and nutritional supplements for health maintenance and treatment of disorders. Natural foods include organically grown, as well as those not processed, refined, or stored for any length of time and adheres to the philosophy that proper food choices will influence the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of the body.
  • Homeopathy, the second most widely used system of medicine in the world, offers Holistic medicines and natural herbs in individualized programs which work in harmony with the immune system and offers rapid, complete, and often permanent results. Dr. Belling will provide an individualized program based on results of laboratory Blood Chemistry Analysis.
  • Naturopathy finds the cause of illness by understanding the individual from the perspectives of mind, body, and spirit looking at elements of diet, lifestyle, and stress. This therapyoffers nutritional counseling, herbal remedies, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine and physical medicine, and detoxification. Dr. Morita, a certified Naturopath, may recommend laboratory chemical analysis, as well.
  • Food Allergy Counseling helps individuals become “food detectives” to sort through and eliminate those foods causing hypersensitivities, allergies, and intolerances. Foods that are eliminated may be introduced carefully one at a time at a later date. The doctor will ultimately design a specific diet for the individual. This elimination and reintroduction is extremely beneficial for weight loss, as well.
  • Western Nutrition teaches the scientific knowledge behind the nutritional function of foods, as well as the daily nutritional requirements for optimal health. By understanding the chemical components of foods, individuals are taught to make healthier choices in their selections. The doctor will point out the risks involved in consuming processed, refined, and chemically treated foodstuffs and will recommend changes in eating habits to promote a healthier lifestyle.
