Prior To Visit
We ask all new patients to complete and submit our intake paperwork and history forms prior to your first visit. These will be reviewed by our Doctors before your meeting.

2 Review of Findings
This appointment will begin with a follow-up consultation with your treating physician where they will go over all findings from your Day 1 exam and any outside test results. Next, the Doctor will make recommendations for your personalized treatment plan. This will include a detailed description of treatment length, cost, and goals which vary greatly for each patient. Once your plan is reviewed and accepted, the Doctor will begin your first treatment.
3 First Treatment
During your first treatment, the Doctor will have you perform various tasks and record your benchmark to identify any neurological indicators that may be functioning sub-optimally. This will set a starting point for your progress at Optimal You.

4 Treatment Plan
From this point on, your appointments will be scheduled out in advance and much shorter in duration, sometimes daily. These appointments will differ based on the specific treatments included in your personalized treatment plan. Your treating physician will monitor your brain function and progress throughout each visit and record your improvement. You will most likely have additional exams over the course of your treatment plan, as well as a final exam where the Doctors determine if you are ready to graduate to wellness care, dismiss from care, or extend your current treatment plan. Our treatment plans grow and change as you do, so we continuously monitor your progress and adapt our treatments to ensure you are receiving the best care. Each treatment plan also includes an at-home plan which extends your growth long after your time at Optimal You.
What is the ScanVision Scanning sEMG Exam?
The ScanVision makes use of Technology similar to EKG. Rather than counting heart muscle patters, muscular compensation of the spine is measured by us. (As it is very important to measure of spinal health, scan vision scanning exam is an electronic form of palpation which is important to determine spinal health.) Measurement of spinal health is of prime importance and it takes only a couple of minutes to do so. To measure this a highly effective ScanVision Scanning sEMG exam is carried out, which is an electronic form of palpation.
Is it painful?
(Absolutely Not. It does not cause pain or irritation as it is non-invasive, making it safe for all categories of age groups from children to seniors, and even pregnant women. The process just requires placing of small electrodes against the skin)
Why is muscle activity important?
Colors define the level of tension from average to exceptionally low readings. The colours green, pink, red and yellow corresponds to average, moderately high, high, and exceptionally low readings, respectively. Arrows points the direction of imbalance where, percent difference displayed is the difference between left and right side of the measured level. Both extremely high (red) and very low (yellow) readings are significant, where high readings (red) contribute to acute phase of spinal subluxation or injury and exceptionally low readings (yellow) are commonly seen when muscles are in chronic state of fatigue.
What is the EP Stress Score?
EP Stress Score (Electrophysiological score) is calculated by performing sum of all muscle activity readings for both left and right sides at all levels of the spine. The sum provides a baseline measurement to which all other subsequent readings are compared. This allows us to track your progress over time with a simple single number. This number has value of its own. While, first reading creates baseline, all further readings are compared with baseline to carry out tracking progress. Elevated EP Stress Score readings on a first exam are associated with the acute state of subluxation and/or spinal health. Readings start to drop after 4-6 weeks of care. Low EP Stress Score readings of the first exam are associated with a chronic problem, with muscles in a state of fatigue. Expect your EP Stress Score to increase, as muscles begin to fire more normally. The EP Stress Score will reflect your daily activities as no one lives static lives. Every activity will impact your score even you are sitting on computer for long or getting engaged in sports activities.
QEEG - PRO Brain Scanner
- Neurofeedback is a non – invasive method of direct brain function training. It is also called as EEG Biofeedback.
- It uses electrodes (which act like tiny microphones) placed on the client’s scalp to record and amplify the EEG, or brain – waves and control auditory, visual and tactile feedback which allows learning to take place.
- The operant learning initiates self-regulation and enhances relaxation both necessary components of good brain function.
- Neurofeedback targets the underlying dysregulation in brain activity that can exacerbate and sometimes causes clinical symptoms.
- Clients sit on a recliner and listen to sound and play a video game on a computer using their brain to direct the action. When the desired brain wave state is achieved the game continues and points are accumulated.
