Massage Therapists and Physical Therapists) in alterative healthcare techniques. At the same time, he

TYPE OF PRACTICE
Weight Loss – Our program evaluates a patient’s diet and exercise based on hormonal influences,
specifically fat burning hormone triggers. Tailor-made recommendations are given based on Dr. Berg’s
latest book, “The 7 Principles of Fat Burning”. Metabolism is influenced by 6 fat-burning hormones. The
patient is guided as to what to eat based on the foods which enhance fat-burning instead of fat-storing.

Acupressure Stress Elimination Technique (ASET) – A technique to reduce inappropriate stress, pain
and tension in the body through the stimulation of stress points. It is use primarily in weight loss programs
since fat burning occurs in deep sleep.
Dynamic Joint Recovery (DJR) – This technique works to reduce the muscle guarding, which occurs
after joint injury. Before a person can stretch and strengthen the soft tissues surrounding the joint, the
“protective guarding” must be reduced.
NeuroPathway Technique (NPT) – This techniques assess the nerve-brain pathways to help recovery
from old injury and trauma.
Nutritional Consulting – Using whole food vitamin complex supplementation and diet recommendations,
Dr. Berg recommends nutrition to improve overall health.
