CLA INSiGHT Scans: Seeing Your Health in a New Light

At our office, we utilize advanced technology to gain deeper insight into each patient’s health and wellbeing. We provide state-of-the-art CLA insight scans. These non-invasive scans give us a comprehensive analysis of the body, unlocking valuable information that allows us to deliver truly personalized care.

These three metrics paint a picture of how the body’s systems are interacting. They highlight areas of stress, dysfunction, compensation and imbalance at their earliest onset. This enables our team to detect issues before they become symptomatic. It also means we can monitor patient progress and fine-tune care along the way for optimal wellness.

It’s important to note that none of the scans hurt and none of them put anything into your body like X-rays do with radiation. They’re perfectly safe for kids and pregnant women.

The first scan we’ll do is called the HRV and it stands for heart rate variability which measures skin temperature, skin conductance, and heart rate over the course of three minutes. It’ll take all of that information and tell us how active your nervous system is, and also if your gas or brake pedal is over or underactive. 

Next you’ll change into one of our fancy backless shirts (so we have access to your spine) and we will do our next scan, which is called a rolling thermal. Thermal means temperature, which is what this one measures. We will get data from the temperature of the spine from bottom all the way to the top and also measure temperature from side to side between all of the levels of the spine. This one is really cool because every organ in your body is controlled by nerves that come out of the spine at certain levels. When one area of your spine is subluxated or has interference, it’ll show stress in that area, which a lot of the time goes with some of the symptoms you’re having. 

Finally, the last scan we’ll do is the EMG. It stands for electromyography. This one measures the muscle activity along the paraspinal muscles along your spine. We will mark a few key places on the spine and the sensors will pick up on how much energy is in that muscle. Neurological and tone challenges are a big deal, as motor function and development determine brain function and development. That means if the EMG scan detects patterns of stuck tension and imbalance, the brain is almost certainly stuck in sympathetic (fight or flight) mode – and struggling with an imbalance between its core functions of regulating emotions, behavior, learning and memory. 

We understand how intimately the nervous system is tied into every function and reaction within the body, allowing us to identify and clear interferences within the nervous system that impact everything from adults with acute pain or lack of energy to infants with torticollis, constipation, or latching issues. The insights from CLA scans help us move beyond one-size-fits all adjustments and instead facilitate customized care. Once we have this data we are able to go over all of our findings with you in a comprehensive report – where we create a completely personalized care plan. If you have ANY questions about the scans we offer or the process of being scanned at our office, send us an email! We hope to see you soon for your scan!

The road to becoming a chiropractor has been a scenic but educational one. After my own incredible experience with chiropractic care, I moved to Dallas in 2013 to attend Parker University and begin the journey to serve others.
 
Upon graduating, I worked in a rehab based clinic located in Irving, TX which prepared me with significant clinical knowledge in addition to expanding my experience into nutrition, physical therapy, and a variety of other palliative modalities. 
 
When the stars aligned for me to move back to Kalamazoo, falling in stride along Dr. Kate and Dr. Steve was an easy transition.  Their passion for serving the community of Kalamazoo is contagious and motivating! 
 
I welcomed my son Max in 2015 and my daughter Amelia in 2016. They motivate me daily to make positive choices and look at the big picture, both at home and at work. 
 
My desire is to educate our patients and create a sense of autonomy and confidence when it comes to their health! I look forward to working with the incredible people of southwest Michigan – hope to see you in the office soon!

Dr. Steve

After graduating from Miami University in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from the school of Kinesiology and Health, and double minor in Business and Coaching, I began a four-year chiropractic program at Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri outside of St. Louis. In addition to the required chiropractic curriculum, I completed classes and performed research in advanced biomechanics, functional rehabilitation, kinetic chain analysis, and musculoskeletal therapies. This extra-curricular education has given me an edge in treating patients, allowing me to identify dysfunctions often overlooked by other providers.

Upon graduation from Logan College of Chiropractic in 2011, I moved to Indianapolis and started my own practice, PEAK Chiropractic. During my experience of owning and operating PEAK, I gained invaluable experience on how to treat patients of all levels and how to run a successful chiropractic practice. So, when my uncle, Dr. David Antoniotti, called my wife, Dr. Kate Antoniotti, and me with the offer to buy, run, and continue the tradition of Antoniotti Chiropractic in Kalamazoo, saying “yes” was extremely easy.

In March of 2016 Dr. Kate and I welcomed our son, Leo, to the world. And in October of 2018, our daughter, Rose, was born, making us a family of four. 

It is an honor to be continuing my family’s 50-year tradition of chiropractic care in Kalamazoo and I look forward to seeing you in the office!

Dr. Kate

I have always been interested in health, fitness, and human potential. After going through my own personal health struggles in college, I became passionate about holistic and preventative healthcare. This led me to pursue a B.Sc. degree in Exercise Science & Kinesiology- with the ultimate goal of becoming a Chiropractor.

After graduating from Miami University, I moved to St. Louis, Missouri to attend Logan College of Chiropractic, where I earned my D.C. degree. While at Logan, I did additional studies in nutrition, pediatrics, and women’s health. It was during my four years in St. Louis, where I also discovered my love for yoga, and eventually became a yoga teacher (200-RYT).

Dr. Steve and I welcomed our son, Leo, to the world in March 2016. And then in October 2018 we welcomed our daughter, Rose, to the family. Becoming a mom has been a defining moment in my life, both personally and professionally.

With my background in chiropractic, yoga, nutrition, pediatrics and women’s health – I have focused my practice to specifically address the needs of Moms. I deeply care about the health and wellbeing of our children, and I strongly believe that we need healthy Moms in order to have healthy kids.

By directing my focus on pregnancy chiropractic care, post-partum wellness, and pediatric chiropractic – I am hopeful that I am doing my small part in improving the health of our community.
