Your body is RESTRICTED, and this is impacting your gut health.What am I talking about? I'm talking about physical restrictions in your body that is impacting your nerves, organs, fascia, and even muscles and bones. This is not just about having tight muscles. This is about organs and fascia sticking together and reducing bloodflow, nerve conduction, and detoxification to the most important parts of your body. These restrictions can be accumulated from birth to adulthood, through accidents and injuries and even illness. You may remember having a traumatic car injury or concussion from a sports collision - and you may not. These restrictions can build from small, repeated injuries that happen from daily life - slipping on ice, minor car rear-endings, epidurals, and more. On top of your gut health problems, you also suffer from physical pain that you've tried traditional methods of treatments for such as yoga, exercise, physical therapy, or chiropractic care. All of this is connected to your gut health problems as well! Your organs, just like your muscles, need SPACE to move. If they can't - they end up clogged, toxic, and starved of nutrients they need to function. This results in a wide variety of symptoms, including bloating, constipation, foggy-headedness, fatigue, insomnia, menstrual irregularities, and more. Craniosacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation address fascial restrictions around your organs, brain, and spinal cord that can impact both your organ functions and your day-to-day pain levels. They are light-touch therapies, done in an office, by a licensed and trained manual therapist.If you are local to Ann Arbor, MI, you can book a New Client Appointment at our office today!

Your body is DEPLETED, and this is impacting your gut health.What do I mean by depleted?A depleted body is one that lacks the basic nutrients and detoxification functions to maintain a balanced, healthy body. Oftentimes, a depleted person suffers from invisible causes of inflammation that are damaging the body - no matter how many good things you do to try and heal it!Examples of hidden causes of inflammation include pathogens, food sensitivities, leaky gut, heavy metals, liver congestion, mineral imbalance, weak methylation, and stress.But you might be saying - but I've TRIED to heal some of these things. Why hasn't it worked yet?First - this is common for MANY of our clients. What has happened is that you haven't found the most important factors impacting your body. You've either found a parasite, but not found another pathogen in your body. Or you've eliminted food sensitivities, but you never healed your stomach acid levels and liver congestion (needed to digest the good food you're eating!). Think of it like this - inflammation is like a fire. If you haven't put out the fire yet, it doesn't matter how many times you repaint the rooms. You're still going to have a dysfunctional house. Similarly - even if you HAVE put out the fire (the main causes of inflammation), you still need to go through the specific steps to address fire damage - which often takes longer than even the initial steps required to put out the fire in the first place!Unfortunately, many conventional doctors and health practitioners either ONLY are taught how to put out the fire, OR they are only taught how to manage fire damage, but never find the source of the inflammation (e.g., fire). This results in a dog-catch-tail cycle of trying to attain true gut health while always missing the mark.The good news? You aren't stuck! Your body still wants to heal, if only you give it the right resources.That's where our Foundations Program comes in. The Foundations Program utilizes our special, Better Belly 9-Step System to systematically find and address the hidden holes in your gut health. From finding the fires to healing the fire damage - our program does it all. And we do it WITHOUT guessing. Instead, we use advanced, functional lab testing to find the ROOT cause of your gut health (and hormone. and skin. and fatigue) problems. Because - they're all connected!To learn more about the Foundations Program, watch our FREE webinar on our proven, 9-Step System to an Energized, Focused, Vibrant YOU!
Your body is RESTRICTED and DEPLETED, and this is holding back your gut health.Your gut health is more than just the food going into it. It's also the nerves going to it and coming from it, muscle fibers, fascia, blood flow, and detoxification. These exist on both a physical level AND a biochemical level. Think of the difference between a cake pan (the physical container) and the cake batter (where the chemistry happens). You need both to bake a cake - and if one isn't working right (a hold in the cake pan, or no sugar or baking soda in the cake) - there's no cake for you!You have a history of physical injury or illnesses that are known to cause fascial restrictions in the body that impact the brain's ability to communicate with the gut, and the gut's ability to act out the directions it's given. This can result in a variety of symptoms, from physical pain to constipation, bloating, difficulty swallowing foods or pills, acid reflux, foggy-headedness, fatigue, and insomina.On top of that, you have signs of BIOCHEMICAL imbalance that have depleted your body of the nutrients it needs to function. Causes of biochemical imbalances include pathogens, food sensitivities, leaky gut, heavy metals, liver congestion, mineral imbalance, weak methylation, and stress. You've tried to heal some of these things, but you're just NOT getting the results you want. Why? It's likely that you haven't found the most important factors impacting your body. You've eliminated food sensitivities, but you still have a pathogen. Or you've been to the chiropractor, but you have fascial restrictions around your organs or nervous system that continue the pain, stiffness, and restrictions you feel in your body. Craniosacral Therapy (CST) and Visceral Manipulation (VM) are gentle, hans-on manual therapies designed to release the physical, fascial restrictions around your nervous system and organs to optimize both physical health AND gastrointestinal health. In our office at Better Belly Therapies, our licensed manual therapists are trained in the highest levels of CST and VM to quickly and efficiently find and address your restrictions and get your organs and body functioning optimally again.Functional Lab Testing is designed to help you pin-point causes of your depletion and guide you to both eliminating your invisible causes of inflammation AND restoring the nutrient status of your body so that you don't have to live with constant food restrictions or supplements. Functional Lab Testing differs from conventional hospital testing in that they are tests that use different methods to look at different markers of health that conventional doctors and health professionals do not look for. Some of the tests we most commonly run include the DUTCH Test, GI Map, HTMA (Hair Tissue Mineral Test), Functional Bloodwork Analysis, and the MRT 170 Food Sensitivity Test.If you live local to Ann Arbor, MI, we invite you to book a New Client Appointment with us so that we can do a physical evaluation and determine the best route of healing for you for both CST/VM and functional lab testing.If you are not local to Ann Arbor, MI - we can still work together! Our Foundations Program is designed specifically for US and Canadian residents to work with us to heal their gut from the inside out. And if you want to find a CST and VM therapist near you - not a worries! We will help you find a therapist near you so that you can get the best of both worlds!To learn more about the Foundations Program, watch our FREE webinar on our proven, 9-Step System to an Energized, Focused, Vibrant YOU!
