CPR ~  Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions often with artificial ventilation in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest.

BLS ~ Basic Life Support is a deeper coverage of CPR fundamentals as well as a greater depth of basic medical knowledge and is used for life-threatening injuries until they can be given full medical care at a hospital.

LSVT BIG trains people with Parkinson disease (PD) to use their body more normally.  People living with PD or other neurological conditions often move differently, with gestures and actions that become smaller and slower. LSVT BIG can produce significant improvements even for people facing considerable physical difficulties.

ETPS combines the principles of acupuncture & neurology with microcurrent stimulation. ETPS  successfully helps people control their pain levels and resume normal functioning in their lives again.
