Diagnostic Testing

Tummy Temple offers a wide array of diagnostic tools that offer insight into the most appropriate treatments for your individual needs. We are passionate, lifelong learners who stay closely tuned to scientific developments that offer more acurate information to help us support your health. Our current diagnostics include the following.

Adrenal Stress Index: This test is a benefit for nearly everyone, as our modern culture taxes the nervous system and many of us experience symptoms of chronic stress—fatigue, insomnia, weight gain, poor immunity, acid reflux, type 2 diabetes, anxiety, depression, allergies, PMS, constipation, diarrhea, and skin conditions like eczema, rashes, etc.  It is an excellent panel for women who are menopausal or peri-menopausal. Knowing how your adrenals are handling the stresses of your life is vital to helping you feel your best.

Complete Blood Chemistry: These tests are vital in evaluating your body’s current need for specific nutrients.

Digestive Stool Analysis: We offer several different types of testing, tailored to your specific history and digestive needs. These tests help us to get you results.

Female Hormone Panel: This diagnostic highlights causes of cyclical symptoms, such as PMS. We use this to assess hormone imbalances that cause infertility, irregular cycles, and those that result after discontinuing birth control. We also have specific hormone panels to identify the most appropriate supports for menopause and peri-menopause. 

Male Hormone Panel: Yes, men’s hormones can be imbalanced as well! Signs of this are depression or anxiety, hair loss, low vitality, low libido, decreased muscle mass and strength.  

Neurotransmitter Testing: This diagnostic is useful to support those experiencing chronic depression, insomnia, anxiety, ADD, eating disorders, and obesity. 

Your Naturopathic Consultation with one of our Naturopathic Physicians will determine the most appropriate diagnostics for your situation. Book your appointment online or give us a call at 206.729.6211.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands-on treatment which releases tension patterns in the body to re-establish the optimal flow of the cranial rhythm throughout the body. The cranial rhythm is a subtle wave created by the circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid which surrounds the brain and spinal cord, protecting and nourishing it.

Using a soft touch, restrictions to this flow are released, which can relieve pain, increase mobility, reduce stress, improve function, lessen the effects of injury, and optimize brain function. Craniosacral is also excellent for addressing the emotional response to trauma which has been held in the body.

During the session, the patterns of stress our bodies have adapted over the course of our lives have a chance to unwind, making room for a new vitality and a deep sense of peace and contentment. Most people feel very relaxed by the end of the session, which takes place while fully clothed. It is suitable for people of all ages including babies, children, and the elderly. Common ailments which can be addressed with craniosacral therapy include:

  • Anxiety, Insomnia, or Depression
  • Brain, Head, or Spinal Cord Injuries
  • TMJ [temporomandibular disorder]
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Chronic Neck or Back Pain
  • Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue
  • PTSD
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Migraines and Headaches
  • Nervous System Disorders
  • Stress Related Disorders
  • Sinus Issues
  • Tinnitus or Vertigo

Note: This service is only available in Seattle location.

Pricing for Craniosacral Therapy:
  • $110-120: 1 Hour Session

Electro-Lymphatic Therapy

Electro-Lymphatic Therapy is a gentle, light touch non-invasive technique to stimulate the proper flow and drainage of the lymphatic system. A combination of vibrational, light, and electrical waves help to stimulate the flow by causing the dissociation of proteins that have become trapped in the interstitium. When trapped proteins (not to be confused with nutrient proteins) release their bond, the stagnant lymph is liberated and will flow out into its normal filtration and reabsorption channels.

The lymphatic system and vessels run alongside the vascular system of the body removing impurities from the blood stream. This therapy supports proper fluid balance throughout the body, enhances immune function, and provides a powerful means of detoxification. All forms of inflammation respond favorably to this therapy.

Contraindications include:
  • Pace maker
  • Pregnancy
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clots)
Commonly experienced benefits include:
  • Sense of well-being
  • Pain reduction
  • Swelling reduction
  • Softened scar and fibrotic tissue
  • Reduction of inflammatory conditions

Electro-Lymphatic therapy is suggested for 6-8 weeks per year for the average healthy person. For persons with increased levels of congestion this is considered a starting point. Advanced health concerns can require ongoing treatment for 3-6 months followed by maintenance care.

Electro-Lymphatic therapy is best done in conjunction with Colon Hydrotherapy for maximum cleansing comfort and effectiveness. If one elects not to do colon hydrotherapy then we strongly encourage the use of home enemas, infra-red sauna, Epsom salt baths with Temple Detox Bath Salts, and electrolyte rich water.

Pricing for Electro-Lymphatic Therapy:
  • $85-$150: 1 Hour Standard Session, pricing depends on practitioner
