At Roth Wellness & Chiropractic we use a variety of alternative therapies to help our patients achieve complete wellness.  Many of the alternative therapies we offer our patients are used as part of a total wellness plan that Dr. Roth establishes during your first visit. Some of these alternative therapies include…

Acupuncture Therapy

Acupuncture is based upon a concept called tendinomuscular meridian theory.  This theory explains that channels of blood and energy (Qi pronounced ‘chee’) flow through the body and are directly related to organs, tissues, and overall health. When our Qi is balanced we benefit from good health.  Blocked Qi, however, results in disruption to this natural flow and causes pain, discomfort, and disease.


K-Laser Class IV therapeutic lasers deliver specific red and near-infrared wavelengths of laser light to induce a photochemical reaction and therapeutic effect. Physiological effects include increased circulation, reduced inflammation, pain reduction and enhanced tissue healing.

Experience what our clients have benefited from including: weight loss, increased energy, and decreased pain levels.

ALCAT Testing – Food Intolerance Testing

Are certain foods making you sick? Inflammation and chronic activation of the immune system due to food intolerances has been linked to an array of health issues including diabetes, digestive disorders, migraines, obesity, chronic fatigue, ADD/ADHD, joint pain, arthritis, and many others. ALCAT is not testing for food allergies, but rather helps identify food intolerances, which are far more common and generally take longer to show up than food allergies. The testing helps to identify your cellular reactions to over 350 food, herbs, and chemicals, making it the most effective food intolerance test available.

ARP – Accelerated Recovery Performance

We believe all injury is the direct result of the muscle’s inability to absorb force. The muscles of the body are driven and controlled by electricity and when they are injured, it develops a type of “short-circuit” in the muscles electrical system. Using our proprietary ARPwave technology we can locate the actual origin of that short-circuit (often not where you think it would be) and then rapidly repair it. By understanding and working in harmony with the body’s muscular system, ARPwave can help your body heal itself, naturally. ARP uses a patented bio-electrical current, simultaneously with active range-of-motion and other exercise techniques, to significantly speed up the body’s natural recuperative ability.

Max Pulse – Cardiovascular & Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) Screening Device

The Max Pulse is a simple, user-friendly, non-invasive, FDA Class II medical screening device. The device provides measurements using Photoelectric Plethysmography, Accelerated Plethysmography, and other technologies to access overall cardiovascular and ANS wellness. The test analyzes heart rate variability, arterial elasticity, stress score, remaining blood volume, eccentric constriction, wave type, mean heart rate, stress levels, and much more.

Nerve Damage

Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves often causing weakness, pain, numbness, tingling, and the most debilitating balance problems. This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet which causes the nerves to begin to degenerate due to lack of nutrient flow. The main problem is that your doctor has told you to just live with the problem or try the drugs which you don’t like taking because they make you feel uncomfortable. There is now a facility right here in Nashville that offers you hope without taking those endless drugs with serious side effects.

Young Living Oils

Have you experienced essential oils in spa treatments or bath and body care products? These aromatherapeutic uses are only part of the remarkable essential oils story. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their health, cosmetic, and emotionally uplifting properties. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness they may never have dreamed possible.
