INSiGHT Health Scans

Heart Rate Variability (HRV)

Daily stresses have a quiet way of settling-in and building up in your body creating imbalance in the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) and reducing your ability to cope.

The ANS is a specialized nervous system that controls all your vital functions without you even thinking about them.

HRV is a great tool to measure how your ANS is working.

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is nothing new in the health care fields, and readily used as a measurement of overall health and wellness.

According to the Harvard Medical School:

Over the past few decades, research has shown a relationship between low HRV and worsening depression or anxiety. A low HRV is even associated with an increased risk of death and cardiovascular disease.
People who have a high HRV may have greater cardiovascular fitness and be more resilient to stress. It is fascinating to see how HRV changes as you incorporate more mindfulness, meditation, sleep, and especially physical activity into your life.

When you get your INSiGHT neuroPULSE HRV scans, you and your provider get a clear picture of how balanced your ANS is and what needs to change in order to improve your HRV. This test is a great indicator of how well you are able to manage stress (ADAPTABILITY) and how much more stress you can take on (CAPACITY).

Ashley sought chiropractic care with Dr. Tara and Registered Massage Therapy with RMT Kelly and RMT Ladie throughout her pregnancy.

"The team at Advanced Vitality has been instrumental in both of my pregnancies. Dr. Tara provides safe, knowledgeable and professional treatment. She is keenly diverse in prenatal chiropractic care and provides relief for many pregnancy related concerns and discomforts. Coupled with both RMT Ladie and RMT Kelly's outstanding massage therapy techniques during pregnancy, the clinic is reliable, safe and professional. There is no clinic I would trust more for care during pregnancy. Thank you AV Team!!!"


Health Tip of the Month

Is Your Sunscreen Safe?

With the first day of summer officially starting on June 20th, the best way to take care of yourself and your family is to wear appropriate clothing (hats, sunglasses, etc.), avoid long periods of time in the sun especially during peak periods of UV exposure (around 10am-2pm) and use safe sunscreens when you are in the sun.
