Functional & Transformational Medicine
This is healing at its most holistic. We focus on the root causes of your symptoms and look for imbalances and dysfunctions that are keeping you from feeling good.
We’ll work with you to determine the specialized testing needed to identify the causes of your health concerns. Our knowledgeable staff will guide you through the testing process that is the best fit for you. With a wide variety of tests including blood, saliva, hair, stool or urine, we are able to provide objective findings alongside valuable information about your health.
We are constantly surrounded by toxins in our daily lives. The toxins we are exposed to often come from our food, air and water, and can be stored in our tissues and cells for years. Feel Good Clinics offers a targeted detoxification program that helps eliminate harmful, unwanted chemicals from your body. Our program includes a regiment of guided eating and nutritional supplements to help improve health and increase energy, all while eliminating toxins from your body.
Take control of your health and learn how to make the best choices possible for you and your body.
Nutrition is also an area that many of our patients struggle with. At Feel Good Clinics we provide nutritional education as well as recommendations for supplements that will help you be the healthiest version of yourself.
Sometimes you need a little added encouragement to feel good and stay on track. Our dedicated team will work with you one-on-one to provide personalized coaching that will help increase your vitality and sense of well-being.
Be more confident, gain self-esteem and become more intentional in your everyday life. Our Mindful Life Coaching services will help you restore balance to your busy life.

HPN works around the neural blockages in the brain caused by stressors and trauma. Addressing the brain in its own electromagnetic language, HPN allows the brain to “reboot”, restoring optimal functioning.
Genezen is a revolutionary new approach of healing that taps into the signals of your subconscious mind and body. Our subconscious mind has stored a myriad of associations with countless experiences. How these influence our neural pathways is much overlooked in modern medicine. We all know by experience that when we feel good, many things fall into place. Feeling good infuses our very presence and naturally, we all love it when our feelings elevate
Our subconscious patterns and our neural pathways are interwoven signals. To treat one without the other doesn’t make sense. Signals themselves don’t carry a meaning. Us perceiving them as feelings is where meaning is created. When we turn weak signals into strong ones, our feelings greatly change. When we feel good we find ourselves in an optimum environment of healing.
Stories are fascinating. We all love them. They also differentiate from each other. Stories come from our translation of signals. One signal can can be the root of many stories. The signal itself is meaningless. Signals come before stories. To experience our signals directly, we temporarily need to get out of our stories.
We often hear people say: “It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.” Most of us carry a weight we don’t really feel until it is lifted. We clearly feel the difference after a few Genezen treatments. When we experience our signals while we feel good, inspiration and healing comes into being.
Our patterns are stubborn because they are deeply engrained. We cling to our stories and the stories of others. A man died months after a black spot on his lung was diagnosed to be cancerous. His wife found an x-ray from 25 years earlier that showed the same black spot on his lung. Stories and the way we translate our signals, govern our subconscious mind which has a tremendous influence on the body.
Genezen needs your experience to be understood. It connects a missing link between your body and mind. The result is a genuine lift in the way you feel.
Feel Good Clinics is the only clinic in DSM offering this unique and groundbreaking treatment
Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency Therapy (PEMFT) sends electromagnetic waves through the body that benefit you at the cellular level and help improve the health of your central nervous system. This treatment method is shown to have positive effects on pain reduction, blood circulation, inflammation, sleep, stress response and more.
PEMFT works cumulatively so regular sessions are recommended.
NanoVi is a device that helps repair everyday cellular damage without the use of drugs or negative side effects. NanoVi produces the same biological signal your body makes to repair cellular damage brought on by free radicals. This type of therapy can be useful in strengthening your immune system, increasing your vitality and slowing the aging process.
Our Class 4 laser is a safe and effective device to relieve your pain. It uses coherent light that accelerates your body’s natural healing process. During the treatment a laser beam is moved over your skin allowing light energy to deeply penetrate your tissue to interact with different molecules and produce photochemical, photothermal and photomechanical effects. Laser therapy reduces your inflammation, eliminates the risk of surgery and it restores your quality of life. We have seen clients with frozen shoulders who got their full range of movement back in just a few sessions. Class 4 laser therapy is very helpful for acute pain. It is drug free, surgery free, non-invasive and painless.
We believe that Chinese medicine helps bring a holistic awareness to our healing practices.
Chinese medicine is based on balance and opposites -- Yin and Yang being the prime example. They perfectly balance each other, and you can’t have one without the other. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) uses Eight Principles of Diagnosis to describe the basic qualities of disease in four pairs of opposites:
Yin and Yang
Interior and Exterior
Excess and Deficiency
Hot and Cold.
Our Practitioners of Chinese Medicine will listen to your complaints, observe your tongue, palpate your pulse and areas of concern, and then determine your pattern based on the eight principles above. Our ultimate goal is to bring your body back into its perfect balance.
Acupuncture is probably the most well-known modality under Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Our board-certified, licensed acupuncturists begin by placing sterile, very thin, stainless steel needles in particular acupuncture points based on the Chinese Medical diagnosis and treatment plan discussed during the consultative part of your session There are hundreds of acupuncture points, or ashi points throughout the body, all with specific uses. Ashi points are also known as “that’s it!” points, which are areas that can be more tender. Using these points with specific insertion techniques, balance is restored to the body. Acupuncture is completely natural in that it is training your own body to heal itself.
A more modern modality is E-Stim, Electro-Stimulation. E-stim is similar to the TENS unit which increases nerve stimulation which helps reduce pain by stimulating the body’s cells and tissues to heal. You may be familiar with this modality, but in our clinic, it is used in combination with acupuncture and involves attaching electrodes to the strategically placed needles, emitting a controlled current of electricity to the acupuncture points and throughout the body. While mostly used for tough pain conditions, both acute and chronic, it can also help a variety of other symptoms. While safe, controlled, and effective E-stim is not recommended for people with pace-makers or a history of seizures.
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) is a clinically proven treatment that is highly effective in relieving the many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. This therapeutic approach was developed from more than 16 years of clinical research. The AAT treatment does not rely on the use of medications, herbal remedies or supplements. The treatment is safe, painless and available to patients of all ages, including infants.
AAT works directly with the relationship between the major organ systems and inappropriate reactions to harmless substances. While the immune system is responsible for initiating an immune reaction in the case of true allergies, it is the health and state of the organ systems that often determines the type of symptoms that may arise. With both sensitivities and allergies, symptoms typically stem from the organ system affected. For example, one patient may react to soybean by getting a rash while another patient may react with sinus congestion, heartburn or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The symptoms in each of these cases represent a different organ system affected. By treating the organ systems involved in a reaction, the body is able to respond more appropriately.
During treatment, gentle pressure is placed on points that correspond with the organ systems involved in a reaction. The degree of stress on the organ systems caused by an allergen or offending agent is proportional to the degree of the negative reaction. When the stimulation is applied a subtle representation of the offending substance is introduced to the surface of the skin. The stimulation reduces the stress on the effected organ system, allowing for a more appropriate response.
All aspects of holistic medicine align in the approach that treats the whole body. They share the understanding that health conditions may develop as a result of interference in proper functioning caused by various forms of stress or other factors. Reducing this stress or interference allows for optimal health.
- AAT does not diagnose allergies, sensitivities or intolerances.
- AAT does not test for allergies or sensitivities. The AAT system simply assesses what may be causing a stress to the body.
- AAT does not cure allergies, nor does the therapy treat the immune system. AAT is a highly effective treatment that provides long-term relief from symptoms associated with allergies or sensitivities.
- AAT does not treat cases of anaphylaxis or life-threatening symptoms. Strict avoidance is always advised in these cases.
Feel Good Clinics is the only clinic in Des Moines offering this unique and ground breaking treatment.
Chinese herbal formulas give your body support with its everyday processes. These herbal formulas can be made up of plants and flowers, stones and minerals, and some animal products which can help balance the body according to the eight principles. They can be helpful for acute and chronic conditions and are quite safe and effective when prescribed by a licensed acupuncturist or healthcare practitioner. Most of our herbal formulas come in capsule or pill form and you take them by mouth a couple of times a day.
Cupping is a simple yet very effective treatment for a variety of symptoms and conditions. It increases blood and oxygen flow to the area, relaxes tight aching muscles, and even has detoxification properties. We’ve used cupping to help with cold and flu-like symptoms, difficulty sleeping, digestive issues, menstrual cramps, aches and pains, injuries, and more. The traditional method utilizes glass cups and a flame to create negative pressure in the cups, which then creates suction on the skin. Through this, specific acupuncture points can be stimulated along with ashi points and areas of concern.
Moxa, short for moxibustion, uses the herb, mugwort, to help enhance blood flow, balance internal organs, and increase joint mobility. Moxa can be particularly helpful for certain types of arthritis, numbness, and cold conditions. While traditional methods of administering moxa include direct (directly applying to skin) and indirectly (either having a barrier or not touching the skin at all), we only use indirect moxa.
Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique and involves meditation, controlled breathing and movement.. There are many forms of qigong practiced throughout the world. Some of these forms involve breathing and meditation to promote spirituality and health while others are more vigorous and include martial arts exercises. Tai chi, a widely practiced mind-body exercise, is sometimes referred to as a form of qigong
The word qigong is made of two parts: Qi, though difficult to translate directly, basically refers to vital energy, information, breath or spirit. The second part of the word, “gong”, means cultivation or mastery. So when put together, qigong means the mastery of your energy.
