Dr. Thomas Heath truly understands that wellness is the state of being in good health in all three areas: mind, body and spirit. His more than 33 years of experience caring for individuals and families from around the world have given him a broad perspective for assisting others in the active pursuit of wellness goals.
As president and founder of Heath Wellness Center, Heath uses a functional approach when meeting with clients. In 1985, he graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic, in Iowa. As a dedicated health professional, he continues to advance his education through trainings and various certifications, generally learning 10 times more than Pennsylvania state continuing education requirements.
Heath’s well-rounded methods aid him in figuring out where a client’s root problem lies in order to make changes. “I want to do whatever I can to help people get well,” says Heath. “Applying the concept of understanding how we are put together and looking at all components––emotional, mental, structural and musculare––leads us to discover connections or imbalances so we can go about fixing the pieces to heal the whole being.”
According to Heath, taking care of the root issues are important for getting people back to living the vibrant lives they were meant to live. “Not only making changes, but how we make those changes has the most impact. We know pain is a driving force for many people to seek help,” notes Heath. “Our focus is helping clients to restore function and remove stress, which brings forth the quality of life that we seek and allows us to do the very things we cherish.”
“Akin to building a house, we need all the tools together to bring about a much greater result,” he explains. In addition to chiropractic, Heath provides the following services: Heart Rate Variability (HRV), Brain Tap, Neuro Emotional Technique (NET), Professional Applied Kinesiology (PAK) and Quantum Neurology Rehabilitation (QN).
HRV evaluates an individual’s balance between the parasympathetic nervous system––often referred to as the body’s rest and digest system––and the sympathetic nervous system––also known as the fight or flight system. HRV testing shows the balance between the heart and the nervous system and provides a stress assessment. “Living in a constant state of stress is detrimental and can lead to imbalance and dis-ease in the body,” notes Heath.
Brain Tap is a tool that stimulates the neuroplasticity of the brain, which is defined as the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections. “It is especially helpful in response to learning, recovering from a traumatic experience or following injury, because the brain-body connection is real,” avows Heath.
“Because we know the body and mind affect each other, correcting one often brings balance to the other and reduces stress in both the mind and the body,” he says. “NET is not a counseling technique but a system that is a psychosomatic, somatopsychic stress reduction intervention aimed at emotional and physical health improvement relating to mental distress caused by bodily illness.”
PAK is a system that evaluates structural, chemical and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing combined with other standard methods of diagnosis. QN Rehabilitation is a powerful system that can optimize the body’s performance and healing.
In combination, these services support change at the foundational level on the journey to wellness. Caring for his clients is at the forefront for Heath. He is emotionally invested in each client’s story and works diligently to find a way to help individuals make the healthy, stress-free and pain-free life they dream of become a reality.
“By looking at all the pieces of a person’s life and current state of health, we use healing techniques as tools to put the puzzle together and create a picture of optimal health,” shares Heath.
