Shannon's interest in natural health began over a decade ago. After graduating from Bethel University, she began a career in technology at a Fortune 500 company. She enjoyed her work, but longed to truly make a difference in the lives of others. After a short health struggle for which she sought traditional medical care, she was still left searching for solutions. Shannon was seeking to get to the "root cause" of the problem, and not just treat the symptoms. Her passion for natural holistic health was ignited, and motivated her to focus her life in a different direction.
Shannon is passionate about teaching others about natural ways to support their bodies, achieve balanced health through eating whole foods, lifestyle choices, exercise, using appropriate nutritional supplements, detoxification and managing life stressors.
Shannon is certified as a Holistic Health Practitioner, with over eight years experience. Shannon is also certified as a QRA Diplomat (Quantum Reflex Analysis) through Premier Research Labs, MFT (Morphogenic Field Technique), and completed Kinesiology Fundamentals through the Kinesiology Institute and has attended several seminars to stay current on the latest information in integrative health.
In her free time, Shannon spends time with her husband and three school age children. She enjoys exercising, reading, and everything outdoors!
Balanced taps into the body's energetic field to help determine what is causing the body stress. We use Applied Kinesiology and/or a bionetic device called the SpectraVision to assess imbalances in the body. This computer technology obtains information about the energetic pathways in your body. SpectraVision reads and measures the energy that is traveling through your body through the acupuncture points, acupuncture meridians (rivers of energy related to your organs), and your connective tissue.
This technology gives information about where the stress in your body is and what is likely causing it. SpectraVision can test for over 10,000 different possible stressors. Some of these stressors include; vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, hormones, bacteria, viruses, parasites, molds/fungi, chemicals, pesticides, pollens, and pet dander.
The human body is made up of nearly 70% water. Stress creates a wave pattern in its reaction to a stressor. A wave is created when we react to stress, similar to throwing a rock into a lake. The multi-channel scan uses electrodes on the right forearm to test skin resistance, while the technology broadcasts a wave for each substance into your body, using a very low voltage that you cannot feel, and measures your galvanic skin response to that signal. To summarize, bioenergetic testing "eavesdrops" on your body's communication internet for what is out-of-sequence, not connected, and not coherent.
Balanced does not diagnose or treat illness, we balance the stressors that may by underlying. Stress is often the basis of illness, so by reducing/eliminating stress you can promote health and wellness.
A Little History
In the 1950s Dr. Reinhold Voll, a German physician, began to investigate ways of measuring electric energy flowing through the acupuncture meridians, based on the bio-electric activity of the autonomic nervous system. "Electro-Acupuncture According to Voll," or EAV, the method is sometimes referred to as "Electro-Dermal Screening" (EDS). The test procedure itself is often called "point testing" or "meridian stress testing". Scientific developments in recent years, especially in the field of quantum physics, support the idea that there is a way to tap into or "eavesdrop" on the body's communication system, and to analyze the complex systems of the body.
