Why Thermography?

Thermography offers a non-contact and non-invasive way to identify and assess areas of inflammation which show up on the skin as variations in temperature.

These thermal patterns identify:

> Inflammation, congestion, and injury,

> The cause of illness such as dental issues, musculoskeletal imbalances, toxins/pathogens, or emotional stress.

Assessing these thermal variations provides an in depth look at changes in the function of the body function and can aid in developing a targeted treatment plan.

There is now a consensus that chronic inflammation is a clinical marker for a compromised immune system and the onset of chronic disease – even when the initial inflammatory condition may be asymptomatic for an extended period of time.

The increasing consensus on the role of inflammation in disease development shows that chronic inflammation plays a central role in some of the most challenging diseases of our time, including rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, and even Alzheimer’s.

Thermography measures the temperature at every point of the body and generates thermal maps of temperature variations.

This provides information on the biological activity of the body (metabolism and circulation).

Find out if you have inflammation before it becomes a chronic condition:

  • Baseline Study visualizes current state of health and prioritizes areas of concern.
  • Follow-up Studies monitor progress towards optimal health and wellness.

By producing a thermal map of the body, thermography allows you to visualize your health and encourages a more proactive and participatory approach to health and wellness.

The human body is one large inter-related system, and as the inflammatory markers associated with specific conditions can manifest in different areas of the body and be associated with different symptoms, there is often substantial value-added from analyzing the wider set of information available from more comprehensive thermography studies. For this reason, it is generally accepted that a full-body scan, or at least an upper body scan, is preferable over studies which covers only a specific region (such as the breast or the head and neck).

This allows the practitioner to assess the overall picture of your health and any potential for disease.


What is Thermography?

The skin is the body’s most intelligent organ and is “wired” with a communication network connecting all other organs and physiological processes in the body. In other words, the skin responds to physiological changes and a thermography device records those changes.

There is now a consensus that chronic inflammation is a clinical marker for a compromised immune system and the onset of chronic disease – even when the initial inflammatory condition may be asymptomatic for an extended period of time.

Clinically, thermography is a test of physiology that relies on the sympathetic nerve control of skin blood flow and the ability of the sympathetic nervous system to respond to and react to pain, pathology, injury or dysfunction anywhere in the body.

By providing information on the biological activity of the body (metabolism and circulation), thermography is classified as a functional test. By contrast, technologies such as x-rays, ultrasound, MRIs and mammograms provide information on the internal anatomy of the body and are therefore considered to be structural tests.

As recognized by the FDA since 1982, thermography is a complementary tool to these other technologies. None of these tools are stand-alone diagnostic tools and there is growing evidence of a substantial increase in the effectiveness of screening procedures when multiple tests, including thermography, are included in health assessments – precisely because each test provides unique information about the state of health.


What you Get

Your Imaging appointment: 30-60 minutes in length depending on what areas you wish to be scanned.

An in depth health assessment in the form of a written report usually sent to you by email 7-10 days after your visit.  This report tells you what the thermal patterns in your study mean, what the key areas of focus are, and what the treatment plan should be. This report can also be sent to your healthcare provider if requested.

Complimentary follow-up phone call with our clinic director and thermology interpreter to review findings.


Thermography Services and Fees

Breast Thermography 30mins, $215 

A thermography study can help to identify abnormal vascular patterns and significant temperature differences which are associated with the development of chronic disease in the breast region, and it can also aid in monitoring the structural integrity of implants.

In the area of the breast, thermography can aid in the detection of the following potential conditions:

  • Breast Cysts
  • Lymphatic Congestion
  • Estrogen Dominance
  • Generalized Inflammation
  • Fibrocystic Breasts
  • Hormone Imbalances


Women’s and Men’s Upper Body 45mins, $295

The Upper Body Study covers the head and neck, breast, chest, upper back, abdomen, and lower back. In upper body studies thermography has been shown to be an effective tool for assessing the functional status of the digestive system, cardiopulmonary system (heart, lungs and circulation), the lymphatic system, and muscular skeletal system.

By seeing what the human eye cannot see, thermography can also assist the clinician in locating the optimal treatment areas.


Women’s and Men’s Full Body 60mins, $365

The Full Body Study covers the entire body—head to toe.

Thermography helps to identify areas of inflammation, neovascular (new blood vessels) and neurological (nervous sytem) phenomena based on levels of temperature, differences in temperature, and appearance and location of thermal patterns.

With thermographic imaging, we can identify areas of suspected inflammation and infection because they present with heat. Once an area of concern is identified, recommendations for specific follow-up tests and/or examinations become an important part of the thermography report.

In addition, many dietary, lifestyle and environmental factors have been shown to play a part in the inflammatory process.
