We provide a high level of diagnostic and treatment services to help your specific condition.
Applied Kinesiology (AK)
Applied Kinesiology (AK), developed by Dr. George Goodheart in 1964, uses bioenergetic feedback through testing the strength of various muscles in the body. This highly individualized, in-depth sytem of analysis, allows the doctor to assess various aspects of a patient's state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system which focuses on whole body care.
AK allows the skilled health practitioner to evaluate functional illness, which typically precedes disease. This highly individualized, in-depth sytem of analysis, allows the doctor to assess various aspects of a patient's state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system which focuses on whole body care. AK enables health investigation without intrusion. AK gives insight into the underlying causes and solutions to many functional health problems.
One of the biggest benefits of AK is it gives us a tool for discernment!
Allergy / Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique (A/SERT)
What is A/SERT? A/SERT (Allergy / Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique) is a revolutionary treatment system based on the principles of Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and Applied Kinesiology (Muscle Response Testing). This technique was developed by Dr. John Brimhall, and is a modification of NAET (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique) developed by Dr. Devi Nambudripad. This treatment, in conjunction with the 10-Step Protocol, can bring about dramatic improvement -at times even total elimination- for all types of allergies. It is simple, non-invasive and extremely effective. It is currently practiced by hundreds of health practitioners, including MD's, nurses, acupuncturists, chiropractors, dentists, and, to some extent, allergy sufferers themselves.
How does A/SERT work? A/SERT is based on the recognition that all things, animate and inanimate, in our universe have their own specific electromagnetic fields due to their atomic and molecular makeup, and that these fields affect each other. This is true for our bodies, rocks, pollen, mold, peanut butter, a flower, water, in short, everything. This electromagnetic energy is associated with meridians (energy pathways) in acupuncture, chi in Chinese Medicine, and can be demonstrated with Kirlian photography. Nuclear physicists can determine the type of atom by its electromagnetic frequency. According to Dr. Devi Nambudripad, this is what happens: Your energy system and brain interpret a particular substance (a diamond ring, a whole wheat bagel, a peanut, hot water, sun light) as potentially harmful to your body, and your body reacts. For other people this same item is totally harmless. Your energy pathways freeze up as a way of defending the body against this unsuitable substance. This in turn blocks your energy meridians and, if this condition continues, the overall functioning of your body suffers.
A/SERT Diagnostics- Our fingertips are very sensitive to the electromagnetic energy of substances with which we come into contact. By placing a sample of a suspected allergen into a person's hand, and using Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, the A/SERT practitioner can determine whether or not a person reacts "weak" or "strong" to the substance, i.e., whether this substance causes an energy blockage in the patient's body. Such blockages can cause a wide variety of symptoms, from sneezing and coughing to chronic diseases such as asthma.
A/SERT Desensitization- The A/SERT practitioner stimulates key points along the patient's spine while the patient is holding the allergen. The doctor stimulates certain meridian points, specific organs and lobes of the brain with a Low Level Laser. A chemical change takes place in the autonomic nervous system, neutralizing any allergic reaction to the substance. A/SERT reprograms the brain and the nervous system, and eliminates your body's conditioned response to the 'allergen'. Environmental medicine has been dealing with hidden allergies for several decades. You try to avoid the allergenic substance in your life, you go on a rotation diet, and maybe you can manage. But with A/SERT you can continue to have contact with the very substance that made you sick.
Chiropractic doctors practice natural, drugless, non-invasive health care and rely on the body's ability to self-heal. Sounds ideal, but just how does it work?
Chiropractic looks at the whole picture. Like other health-care providers, chiropractors follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient. Chiropractors consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination, and we may request laboratory analyses and/or x-rays. Unlike other health-care providers, however, chiropractic physicians also conduct a careful analysis of the patient's structure and pay particular attention to the spine. We also ask you about your life- Do you eat well? Exercise at all? How do you deal with stress? Do you have children? What do you do for work? And so on.
Chiropractic seeks the origin of the problem. Using this information, a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms. If your roof is leaking, do you simply catch the drips in a bucket for years on end, or do you repair the roof to prevent it from leaking? Similarly, if the migraine headache you've had all week is being caused by misaligned vertebra and an irritated nerve, do you continue to take pain killers indefinitely, or do you realign the vertebra to prevent the pain? You get the picture.
Chiropractic fixes the origin of the problem. Chiropractors have a term for misalignments: subluxations. A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of the bones that protect the spinal cord. It's a leak in the roof. Or a kink in the wiring of your nervous system. The severity of the subluxation can vary, and there are a number of potential contributing factors that can be physical, emotional, mental, or chemical. The subluxation can be caused by any number of incidents, from birth trauma to an auto accident to simple repetition or over-use.
At Chiropractic Health Center and Holistic Healthcare Services, Dr. Debbi Hannan and the chiropractic staff seek to uncover you whole health and wellness picture, find the origins of health problems, and fix those at the cause. We look forward to your visit at our office in the metropolitan New Orleans Area, located in Metairie, Louisiana on the corner of Clearview Pkwy. and Airline Dr, right next to the Walgreen's.

Cold Laser Therapy
Where is this being used?
The Erchonia cold laser device has gained recent FDA approval for the non-surgical treatment of neck and shoulder complaints and is being used widely in the NFL and by the USPS tour de France team chiropractor. The beneficial effects of the Erchonia laser are currently being researched by leading plastic surgeons for use in liposuction proceedures.
How does it work?
When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing.
Laser therapy may be useful to you if you have any of the following:

EB 305 - Energy Balancer
The EB 305 was designed and developed to restore the body's energy and balance while facilitating and aiding in its natural detoxification process. This device has been proven in clinical trials to balance and restore the body's Ph and electromagnetic energy.
How does it work?
The EB uses direct current similar to that of the human body to create an ionic field. The patient places their feet in the bioenergetic water to receive the flow of ions which increases cellular function. Studies have shown that more cellular ATP is produced during treatment which enhances the cells to work and detoxify at a higher rate.
You may benefit from the EB 305 if you suffer from:
