At Advanced Balance Clinic, we firmly believe that health is more than the absence of disease. Therefore, the core of our treatment philosophy involves addressing the areas of health that are easily overlooked but critical to improvement. Some medical providers have a lot to give to their clients in terms of technical knowledge and skills, but may not be great at making personal connections. However, there is so much more to be offered by trusting, caring relationships between clients and providers. We prioritize relationships and motivational support for our patients along with providing a healthy dose of education and knowledge. In our experience, we are fighting an uphill battle if we do not address mindset along with physical health.
In the clinic, we have 5 pillars of health we focus on with each and every client. True wellness involves looking at the person as a whole and guiding them to fulfillment in every area of life. We address each of the 5 pillars on a first visit with...

Have you ever heard of a self-fulfilling prophecy?
Ever had a feeling something would go wrong, and then it did? It probably left you wondering if it was intuition, or if your bad feelings caused you to act differently than you would have, bringing about the negative outcome. The answer is likely the latter.

We have to admit, this is a bit of a trick question because there truly is no one secret to being your best self. Though the answer to this question is in reality quite simple, it might not be easy.
A common theme we hear from our clients is that there is some key to living a healthy life that they just haven't found yet. Some deep, dark secret that holds all the answers to living a life of energy, vitality, and abundance.
Chronic disease is becoming more rampant by the day, so we must be missing something, right? Some unknown, mysterious secret that will change our health in an instant if only we could find it.
The true answer is that there is no secret. There is no "one-size-fits-all" approach. And certainly no magic bullet. Instead, the answer involves being mindful along the journey toward finding our best self. It’s not an exciting answer, but by admitting this ourselves we can find a...
At the core of our approach in helping our clients along their journey toward better health as they age is building a mindful movement practice.
So what is mindful movement? Mindful movement is for everyone, from elite athletes to couch potatoes.
Over our years of practice in the medical field, we have noted much of the messaging thrown at us by the fitness industry can be more of a detriment to health than a help. So, we set out on a mission to change the thought patterns around movement to encourage an emphasis on the many positive health benefits of exploring your mobility.
One of our first steps with new clients is guiding them through establishing what we call a "movement practice". A movement practice is individualized based on the health goals of the person in front of us. A...
