Balametrics educates the public about the profound effect that high quality balance therapies have on improving all aspects of intelligence and performance and provides the equipment to enhance the vestibular system. Balance activities that incorporate increasing levels of difficulty on the Belgau Balance Board have the effect of constantly building and creating more extensive neural networks. Because the neural networks that are created in this process are the same ones that are responsible for the resolution and efficiency of the brain's visual, auditory, motor, and sensory processes, balance activities improve the efficiency of the brain.

Integrative Manual Therapy is built upon an underlying philosophy known as the Integrated Systems Approach. The Integrated Systems Approach is based on the premise that there is no one single problem causing a personÕs pain, disability, or limited function. The concept of systems integration extends beyond the physical systems of the body. Indisputable evidence exists that physical health is also influenced by emotional, personal, mental, spiritual and other aspects of an individuals life.
The Integrative Systems Approach includes the following systems and more:
System of Biomechanics (joint integrity) of the pelvis, sacrum and spine
System of Biomechanics of the peripheral joints of the arms and legs
Connective Tissue System
Central Nervous System (brain and spinal cord)
Peripheral Nervous System
Autonomic Nervous System
Visceral System (cardiac, digestive, uro-genital, immune, pulmonary, detoxification, and more)
Circulatory Systems (arterial, venous, and lymphatic)
