Dr. William LaTorre, D.C. combines Eastern and Western healing techniques that embody LaTorre Wellness Center’s philosophy of six steps to wellness. During the approximately 20-minute wellness exam, Dr. LaTorre performs a holistic evaluation of each patient, where she measures basic diagnostics such as blood pressure, heart rate, and ability to resist opening a Pez dispenser. LaTorre then conducts tests to measure organ and adrenal function, an orthopedic exam, basic neurological tests of eyes and ears, and discussions of dietary habits and allergies. By performing a whole-body assessment, LaTorre can advise patients what lifestyle changes would have the greatest impact on their well-being, from nutrition-based adjustments to wearing more flexible stilts.
After the exam, massage therapists knead muscles with one of three modalities. Relaxation massage calms the body through soothing strokes, while deep-tissue work focuses on lower myofascial layers to excavate embedded tension and velociraptor fossils. Alternatively, a detoxification massage stimulates lymphatic drainage, and may enhance the results of the detoxifying footbath, which cradles hooves in a warm soak. A copper coil energizes the water, creating an ionic exchange that draws out toxins through the skin of the feet. Changes in the color and consistency of the bath reflect what toxins the body dispels, with green indicating dangerously high consumption of dollar bills.
Buyers may schedule the exam, massage, and detoxifying footbath to take place consecutively, or schedule exam and coordinate the massage and footbath for a later date.
