If you suffer from chronic pain or have physical limitations from old injuries then we offer a variety of helpful healing modalities to help you feel great again. Our individualized therapy sessions can be added into your schedule either before your stay or while you’re here. Options include Kinesopractic therapy,acupuncture, chiropractic, low level laser therapy, acoustic shock wave therapy, natural foot care consultation, fascial distortion model (FDM), rossiter pain relief system, muscle activation techniques (MAT), personalized posture therapy, and trigger point therapy.
Kinesopractic Therapy can help with common unresolved musculoskeletal pain issues such as neck, shoulder, low back, and hip pain. How it works: Through a formulation of releasing muscular adhesions, joint fixation, and increasing range of motion, National Board Certified and Licensed Dr. Paul Paez, DC will evaluate your condition from a neurological, kinesiological and musculoskeletal perspective. By combining the best from three professions (massage, chiropractic and physical therapy), Dr. Paul has had great success in helping clients have more flexibility, mobility and less pain. Dr Paul will give recommendations that you can take with you after your stay at VeraVia.
Here is what one client said about Dr. Paul’s service; “When I came to Vera Via I was a real mess. My first week was challenging as I had neck and shoulder pain going into the program. I had these problems for well over a year and I was resigned to just live with it and do the best I could while at VeraVia. At the end of the first week I had set up a session with Dr. Paul to see if maybe he could help. Wow! After the first session I was already feeling better and by the third day the pain I had for over a year was almost completely gone! I know not everyone will have the same response I had but I want other clients to know that what Dr. Paul does is more thorough and effective than any other doctor I have ever seen for my physical problems. I know I got more out of my stay at VeraVia and I’m going home with a renewed feeling of hope and health!” – M. Jones
Doctors Specializing In Natural Foot Health
Our Naturopathic Doctor is an expert in natural foot health and we have had great success helping guests to get back into a fitness routine after suffering from foot related pain issues. This natural approach helps our clients understand that their foot isn¹t the problem. We teach the clients about natural foot anatomy and how aspects of their footwear and gait may be contributing to dysfunctional biomechanics. This approach allows for a conservative, corrective and restorative approach to many conditions that are typically treated with surgery or steroid injections.
A natural foot health consultation typically will involve a history of the complaint, physical examination of the foot and limb and treatment often including soft tissue massage, manipulation, low level laser therapy, correction of dysfunctional foot anatomy and education on how to implement a more natural gait including shoe fitting, stretches and at-home exercises.
Many clients report a significant and long lasting reduction in foot and leg pain and improved balance and stability, all without surgery or drugs!
Common conditions treated include: plantar fasciitis, morton’s neuromas, bunions, legs cramps, hammer toes and others.
Low Level Laser Therapy
Low level laser therapy is a research proven, FDA approved therapy for tissue repair and the reduction of pain and inflammation.
Our medical spa doctors are specially trained to use low level laser therapy to help speed the recovery of injuries (old and new) and reduce pain. This allows our clients to fully engage in the program and get the results they desire. Many people have chronic pain, arthritis or old injuries that never healed correctly and still linger when they enter the program. Our doctors utilize low level laser therapy as part of their treatment approach to facilitate healing of these injuries and reduce pain so our clients can participate fully and achieve their desired results.
Low level laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless therapy used by many people from professional athletes to the weekend warrior to victims of chronic pain and arthritis.
- Many of our clients have opted for low level laser treatments throughout their stay and have had significant success in reducing their pain levels and regaining mobility in previously restricted joints!
“The gift of a lifetime”
I really, truly, do not know where to start recounting the extraordinary experiences I had at VeraVia.
To begin with, I am a 62 year old overworked, overweight, stressed out woman on the edge. Having one minor health issue after the next, and then having a big one last year, I was literally at the end of my rope. Not knowing where to to turn, but knowing I needed help fast, I made one of the best decisions of my life and came to VeraVia. I, unknowingly, at the time, gave myself the gift of a lifetime.
For starters, the venue is gorgeous. I’ve been to some opulent hotels in my time, but this takes the cake. Everything; the room, the gym, the grounds, the spa, was perfection. What an awesome treat! From the moment I arrived I was treated with care, concern, and most important of all, respect. The staff is magnificent. Each and every person is an expert in their own field, and welcome you into their world with open arms and a true desire to make you better. Their upbeat attitudes are contagious, and even an old, cranky, tired gal like myself couldn’t help but smile back and be uplifted by their embrace. I learned so, so much, and will carry it with me the rest of my life.
The food is out of this world and very, very good for you to boot! The exercise sessions, although tough for me, were modified so I could complete them, and were just what I needed to get going again. There were medical tests that helped me get a good picture of what my body was up to, and what to work on to improve my health so I can live my best life. What a great tool is that? And, as a big bonus, the aftercare program is out of this world. I get up every day and embark on the VeraVia way of living, which, by the way, is the only way to live.
VeraVia is truly the true path to living well. Do yourself a favor. You are worth having around for a long time, and VeraVia is there to help make that come true. Give yourself the Gift. Go.”
