Dr. Nancy Tarlow

Dr. Nancy Tarlow

RHC's New Practicioner

Restorative Health Center is pleased to welcome Dr. Nancy Tarlow to our team. Dr. Tarlow brings over 25 years of family chiropractic experience, cranial work, nutrition, along with her experience working with stress-related health problems.

One area she has seen significant results has been in incorporating Brain Wave Entrainment. She became very interested in this work due to her own success of resolving 40 years of poor sleep and depression and 5 years of anxiety attacks in 4 weeks. After bringing it into her practice, she also observed other successes in the areas of focus/ADD, low energy and the resolution of many health problems where the origins were connected to stress.

Brain Wave Entrainment can help with the following:

  • Improved focus
  • Deeper sleep
  • Enhanced memory
  • Feelings of well being and calmness
  • Releasing of The Relaxation Response (or moving someone out of "fight or flight")
  • Ease for meditation or calming thoughts

Dr. Tarlow's work is based on when someone is experiencing stress, their brain (and body) goes into survival mode -- or trying to figure out how to get out of their situation. Normally, after the stressor is gone, our brain should be able to increase specific brainwaves for calming or sleep. But with chronic stress, our brain forgets how to increase those calming brainwaves and deep and prolonged sleep is difficult to attain. Our body tends to stay in a "fight or flight" mode causing TMJ/jaw pain, headaches, chronic neck, back and shoulder pain; tightness in our legs, shallow breathing, poor digestion, fertility problems and a fast heart beat.

With brainwave entrainment, the brain "learns" how to handle stress better and how to get out of "fight or flight" easier and quicker. When the nervous system is back in balance, true healing can finally take place. Dr. Tarlow combines her knowledge of stress with Chiropractic care for excellent results.

Our regular fee for the first session is $150 and includes a thorough consultation, Heart Rate Variability (HRV) assessment and one session of Brain Wave Entrainment.

We are offering a discounted rate of $85 for this first session until September 21st, 2018. Please inquire at the front desk, or by calling 610-363-2897, to schedule your appointment.
