• Dr. Melissa Nelson and Dr. Jamie Hollis-Heiman, of the Nelson Healing Center, recently completed advanced level training in Kinesiology Applied to Functional Medicine in Minneapolis.
The course at Northwestern Health Sciences University provided precise evaluation of the spine and treatment of cervical and lumbar discs. It also provided extensive training in Cranial/Sacral corrections and how to integrate procedures with nutrition, chiropractic, detoxification, herbology, cranial manipulation and soft tissue procedures in the office visit. Cranial/Sacral corrections have been used extensively in osteopathic medicine for over 70 years. Applied Kinesiology provides a diagnostic method to evaluate the skull and the efficacy of cranial treatments.
Nelson Healing Center is located at 44 S. 2nd Ave., Sturgeon Bay. For more information call 920.818.0045.
