Complementary Therapies

One of the hallmarks of the integrative medicine philosophy is applying complimentary and holistic approaches to illness in a way that supports conventional medical science and treatments. Lake Travis Integrative Medicine is on the forefront of regularly exploring and implementing approaches such as energy medicine, genetic testing, functional medicine, and group wellness activities.

In addition to medical visits with Dr. Reardon, here are some of the other services we offer.

Neuromodulation/Electrotherapy

Alpha-Stim is an electrotherapy device prescribed around the world by physicians and other healthcare professionals to effectively treat chronic, acute, and post-traumatic pain, as well as anxiety, insomnia, and depression. The treatment utilizes a physician-invented technology that addresses what the body actually is: a complex series of electrical impulses controlling all physiological functions.

Alpha-Stim treatments amplify some neurological system activity and deactivates others in a fine-tuning process called neuromodulation. This unique pain relief and depression treatment device can produce beneficial effects after even a single treatment. Evidence for this abounds in fMRI, LORETA, and EEG mechanistic studies and clinical double-blind, randomly-controlled medical, psychological, and dentistry studies.

We offer treatments and rentals of both the Alpha-Stim Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulator and the Alpha-Stim M, Microcurrent & Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulator.

Please call the office or email Corrie to learn more about this innovative and effective treatment modality.

Energy Medicine

Gale Gassiot, LVN, is a certified practitioner for Healing Touch, a non-invasive energy medicine therapy. Healing Touch practitioners use their hands in an intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.

Healing Touch is based on a heart-centered relationship in which the practitioner and client come together energetically to facilitate the client’s health and healing. It uses the gift of touch to influence the bio-field, the magnetic field around the human body.

Research on Healing Touch has been conducted working with a number of different illnesses and situations including cancer, cardio-vascular disease, death and dying, endocrine/immune function, pain, post operative recovery, stress, and depression.

Studies demonstrate that there is clinical support among medical professionals for Healing Touch as an adjunct therapy, and that patients assess it highly. Healing Touch research has been supported and/or funded by hospitals, universities, colleges, professional organizations, private foundations, and the National Institutes of Health, Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

These gentle techniques restore balance and harmony in the body’s energy system, encouraging and supporting the patient’s own self healing process. Each session lasts 20-30 minutes and costs $35. At this time we are offering this treatment to established patients only. Please call the office or email Corrie to make an appointment.
