Balance Equals Health

Balance Equals Health provides a broad range of healing modalities to support patients in healing and helping them naturally achieve optimal wellness. Every person is unique, and the support they need to heal is customized based on their current situation.

Balance Equals Health uses a range of techniques that include advanced, evidence-based methods rooted in both Western and Eastern modalities to amplify the person’s healing.

Using their knowledge of epigenetics, as second- and third-generation healers, Denise Forster and Dr. Klein treat families throughout multiple generations. In their experience, by beginning a holistic wellness regimen early on, taking a proactive approach to health, and supporting a natural lifestyle for families, they’ve noticed positive long-term effects of health and wellness in the families receiving care at Balance Equals Health.

They work with families during the preconception, conception, and postnatal time periods to create an optimal internal environment for fertility, healthy pregnancy, birth, and recovery, as well as addressing the many facets of health that can contribute to infertility.

Working as part of a team of health care professionals allows for the best possible outcome. They regularly collaborate with OB/GYNs, midwives, doulas, physical therapists, pelvic floor therapists, lactation consultants, pediatricians, and other providers who form a birth team or health care team.

Balance Equals Health provides infant and child functional assessment and treatment with a natural approach to health care, encouraging proactive family wellness as children move through the various stages of development and growth. They take into account your child’s developmental milestones and primitive reflex integration, along with other objective markers of health. They have strong success rates with their patient-centered approach that encourages collaboration with your medical doctor.
