At Santa Barbara Wellness for Life, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer to support you in achieving your health goals.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing state of the art chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As Doctors of Chiropractic, our practitioners have 60 years of training and experience in spinal adjustments between them.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance and accelerate our patients’ return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? We create customized nutritional programs based on your individual needs and goals.
We teach our patients special “blueprint” exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability. Like chiropractic, physiotherapy focuses primarily on optimizing function. Physiotherapy services offered include Therapeutic Ultrasound, Myofascial Release, Heat Treatment, Infrared Therapy and PEMF (see below).
Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field Therapy (P.E.M.F.)
The P.E.M.F. system used at Santa Barbara Wellness for Life, Pulse Center’s XL Pro, is the most advanced equipment on the market. The variable strengths and frequencies of the electromagnetic fields allow us to customize our sessions. P.E.M.F. effectively boosts cellular metabolism, leading to increased rates of tissue healing and overall improved health. Our patients love P.E.M.F.! Read More
QEEG / Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that addresses cognitive imbalances revealed in an EEG. This direct brain function training uses electrodes placed on specific areas of the scalp to record and amplify the EEG, or brainwaves, and control auditor and visual feedback, which allows learning to take place.
We also incorporate LENS, or Low Energy Neurofeedback System, which was created as an alternative to medication for brain-based problems. Using a low power electromagnetic field, similar to the ones that surround digital watches, LENS is able to simultaneously monitor brain activity and carry feedback to specific sites on the brain.

We use a number of specialty labs to help determine what factors or imbalances may be contributing to a patient’s complaints. Undertsanding that Dys-Function precedes Dis-ease, identifying these “root causes” is the first step towards developing individualized wellness plans to help our patients meet their health goals. We offer competitive pricing on all bloodwork for cash patients, comprehensive stool testing, advanced anti-body panels, urinary heavy metal testing and salivary hormones, to name a few. Read More

Celluma Low Level Light Therapy
In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis.
