Your body knows what it needs to heal! We explore the clues and signals of imbalances within your body leading to a path of greater wellbeing.

Autonomic Response Testing, a comprehensive system of assessing the body, was developed by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD. – A.R.T focuses on identifying and addressing the most common factors that stress the healthy functioning of the nervous system and offers solutions for correction.

There are many stressors both inside and outside of your body that can interfere with the proper functioning of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS is the part of the nervous system that functions automatically and requires no conscious thought. It controls your heartbeat, blood pressure, digestion and brain function.

Autonomic Response Testing is a non-invasive modality that evaluates how the ANS reacts to stressors that may be adversely impacting normal organ or system operation. The test relies on feedback from the body to assess the overall state of health and also identify causes of disturbances throughout the body. A.R.T can determine if the body is compromised by infections, toxins, food allergies, scars and other factors. Additionally, the testing can be utilized to determine the most beneficial therapy to facilitate healing.

An A.R.T assessment utilizes changes in muscle tone as a biological ANS marker of stress or imbalances in the body. You will be asked to rest comfortably on a treatment table while the muscle testing is performed with the help of an intermediary staff assistant. Once the practitioner has determined the current primary stressors to the body, screening is done to find the best therapies or remedies to treat the imbalances.

The initial A.R.T evaluations is 1.5-2 hours in length. Follow up sessions are 30-60 minutes in length depending on client needs.

In order to have the most effective A.R.T. assessment, schedule your appointment at least 3 weeks after receiving any vaccines. Complete and bring your intake form to the first session. Avoid food or liquids except for water for at least 1.5 hours prior to your appointment.
