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 even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a 5000-year-old health science, which was developed in the orient. It is primarily done by placing needles in the skin at various locations to relieve pain or treat various dysfunctions in the body. Here at the Raya Clinic the two doctors certified in acupuncture have been practicing Acupuncture in Southington, CT for over 12 years combined.  They utilize a variety of acupuncture techniques including:

We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients’ return to optimal health.

Detoxification

Many toxins may build up in your system throughout time some of which can be detrimental to your health and well-being. At the Raya Clinic our doctors prescribe a specific nutritional protocol and diet to cleanse your body of all harmful toxins that may  affect your health. Many patients lose a substantial amount of weight as well.

Advance Diagnostics

We utilize the most technologically advanced diagnostic procedures available today. We use the Insight Millennium Surface E.M.G., rolling thermal scanning device as well as computerized inclinometry for exact range of motion studies. We also have a full x-ray imaging lab on site for our patients convenience. If the problem lies within the feet or foundation of the patient we use our Digital foot scanning device to properly diagnose a problem and electronically cast an orthotic to fix the problem. We also use Elector Meridian Imaging to properly diagnose acupuncture patients and treat them as accurately as currently possible. If Nutrition is the problem we use laboratory testing procedures such as hair analysis, saliva hormone analysis, and food allergy testing.

Erchonia Cold Laser

Erchonia Cold Laser Therapy is a revolutionary treatment that has been proven safe and effective by the FDA. This treatment is non-invasive, pain free and drug free.

Spine MED decompression

The most sophisticated non-surgical, FDA Certified procedure for lumbar and cervical disc injuries and disc degeneration. Previous conservative modalities have provided only temporary relief to the majority of patients. As a last resort, patients turn to costly and painful surgery to treat their back pain. However, surgery which is only approximately 47% successful may not provide the long-term solution sought after by patients. Furthermore, a patient must consider the inherent risks of undergoing any surgical procedure.

Infrared Light Treatment

Infrared light is not often the first thing that is associated with “therapy” or “wellness”; however, Dr. Raya’s Southington, Connecticut office gives you a choice of this incredible technology as a simple, painless wellness system that can improve your quality of life in many ways.
