Applied Kinesiology (AK), which is also know as muscle strength testing, is a method of diagnosis and treatment based on the knowledge that various muscles are linked to particular organs and glands, and that specific muscle weakness can signal distant internal problems such as nerve damage, reduced blood supply, chemical imbalances or other organ or gland problems.
Everyone is unique and deserves a uniquely thorough approach to improving their health and vitality. By combining Chiropractic treatment, Clinical Nutrition, Acupuncture, Prolozone & other natural injectable therapies Dr. Brandon Washatka is able to specifically diagnosis and treat every patient based on their symptoms and history providing a truly unique and individualized experience.
The human body as a machine for the performance of work has its foundations in three major areas of study: mechanics, anatomy, and physiology; more specifically, biomechanics, musculoskeletal anatomy, and neuromuscular physiology.
Treating the Whole Person
AK evaluates the CHEMICAL, STRUCTURAL, & EMOTIONAL dysfunction of the patient acknowledging one can not be treated without focusing on the others to ensure the whole person and treated and not just the symptoms.
Functional & Holistic Family Medicine
What is Funtional Medicine?
Incorporating conventional medicine with her training in holistic and functional medicine, Dr. Sarah Washatka provides preventative and holistic care for the entire family. She specializes in adrenal, hormone, and neurotransmitter dysfunction in men, women, and children. Dr. Washatka uses her training in Applied Kinesiology as well as Conventional and Functional medicine to tailor a specific treatment protocol for every single patient.
To determine HOW and WHY disease and illness occur and to address the ROOT cause to restore health for each individual. To continue to SEEK out top of the line treatments and cutting edge science in the field to ensure comprehensive care for all.
Understanding that blood serum testing is no longer the only diagnostic test to determine the ROOT cause of illness, Dr. Washatka also utilizes the most up to date diagnostic testing to determine the best treatment plan and ensure a one of a kind approach for her patients.
Patients can expect to address their chemical, emotional, and structural needs when establishing care with Dr. Washatka. Not only will they be treating their main complaint, they will understand how lifestyle stress, chemical stress, and mental stress also contribute and need to be addressed in order to achieve optimal health.
HOCATT Infrared Ozone Sauna
HOCATT stands for “Hyperthermic Ozone and Carbonic Acid Transdermal Technology” and the machine acts as a personal ozone steam sauna, in which patients sit with just their head exposed to the air, while their body receives the benefits of an infusion of ozone, carbon dioxide, steam, Photon light and oxygen.
A special oxygen jet is placed around the neck to provide pure humidified oxygen to the nose and mouth. Special frequency specific Micro-Currents may be selected to stimulate the body through foot electrode pads and/or hand held electrodes. Far infrared rays (FIR) and steam heat up the body, and essential oils may be infused with the steam. Full spectrum color light rays also fill the chamber throughout the session.
CO2 is infused at a very specific flow rate at this stage to convert into carbonic acid as it reacts with the steam. The heat dilates the pores and the carbonic acid further potentiates that effect. Carbonic acid is one of very view compounds that naturally and without any side effects increases the uptake and delivery of oxygen at the cellular level.
The carbonic acid cycle stops automatically and the ozone cycle starts. The ozone cycle continues for the rest of the session. During this stage the ozone reacts with the steam to form ozone products on the surface of the skin. Thanks to the carbonic acid cycle, the efficacy of the ozone cycle in the HOCATT is potentiated by up to double, compared to normal ozone saunas.
At the end of the session, the entire volume of steam is extracted into the large-volume activated carbon charcoal destructor. This prevents releasing the ozone-oxygen into the room when the chamber doors open. The HOCATT is the only ozone sauna system in the industry to provide dual destructors.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 97% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as a part of an overall medical care plan.
Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With HBOT, oxygen is dissolved into all of the body’s fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone and can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. In this way, extra oxygen can reach all of the damaged tissues and the body can support its own healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduces swelling and allows new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas. It is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment.
What is the Magnesphere?
The Magnesphere is pretty simple. It is a chair with two gigantic rings on either side. These rings immerse your body in low frequency electromagnetic fields. The varying frequencies of the fields help put your body in a much more relaxed state, dampening any stresses your body may be under. By doing this, the Magnesphere is helping your body transition from the “fight or flight” response of your nervous system, to a more restful, parasympathetic response which in turn helps you get into a more relaxed state.
Who is the Magnesphere for?
Do you lift weights? What about cardio? Are you an athlete? Do you have trouble relaxing or calming yourself down? Do you find yourself getting anxious or stressed out? What about getting tired in the middle of the day? Do you have problems falling asleep or staying asleep? Do you suffer from chronic headaches or chronic fatigue? If you answered yes to ANY of those, then the Magnesphere is most definitely for you!
Have you tried floating and find that the idea of enclosing yourself in a dark space is causing anxiety? Do you constantly battle yourself trying to relax while floating and feel like you’re missing the benefits of it? What about the NeurOptimal training? Do you feel like you’re not reaping the full benefits because you just can’t seem to focus? Add a shorter 30 minute session in the Magnesphere to your routine before you go into float.

What is NeurOptimal Neurofeedback?
NeurOptimal is an advanced neuro-technology that allows the brain to be trained and unlocked so it can operate at its full capacity and potential. Just like the muscles in your body, the brain is living tissue and can be exercised and strengthened through repetition. This is accomplished by using a software that senses disturbances in the nervous system (electrical signaling) by inserting shifts and interruptions into music that you listen to. These disturbances are mapped through repetition the disturbances in the brain signaling are removed.
Okay, that sounds complicated right? Let’s break it down like this. NeurOptimal Neurofeedback exercises your brain by having you listen to music that has subtle shifts and inconsistencies put in. It then monitors how your brain responds to those changes, logs those responses, and then trains your brain to function more efficiently, be more flexible, and become more resilient.
Who is NeurOptimal Neurofeedback for?
This is great for kids and adults with ADD/ADHD, veterans with PTSD, insomniacs, first-responders (EMT’s, paramedics, law enforcement, firefighters, etc.), anybody with a high stress job, anybody who lives with anxiety, and everybody else who just wants to remove their brain fog to think clearer and faster. Come on, you know you wish you had thought of that witty comeback just a few seconds earlier, right?
Safe for all ages. No consultation, diagnosis or active patient participation required. The short 30 minute sessions are ideal for kids or those who can’t sit still for long periods.
Focus, mental stamina, brain function, creativity and awareness, overall wellness, quality of sleep
We invite you to step into your own private float suite equipped with one of our two Wave Float Rooms or our Orbit Float Pod. There you will have the freedom and privacy to fully release all of your stress. Each suite has a shower, towels, earplugs, and anything else you may need for your float. After showering off and securely placing your earplugs you will step into your float to experience true R.E.S.T.
R.E.S.T. is Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy. The water is super-saturated with 1000-1,200 pounds of Epsom salt to create a weightless environment. The water is so dense that someone can float on top of it; which effectively removes the constant physical stress of gravity on the bones and feeds the muscles a natural relaxant in the form of magnesium. The water and air temperature are the same to ensure that you will lose track of where the water stops and the air begins. This is a truly one of a kind therapy to give the brain and body a break from Light, Sound, Touch, and Gravity.
***Beneficial and safe for pregnant women (once in second trimester) and seniors. Must be at least 16 years of age to float (younger with doctor approval and parent present in room). Please call with any questions or concerns as these stipulations don’t take into account every case and could be modified.
