The HYPOPRESSIVE™ techniques were created in Europe in the early 1980s with the goal of helping postnatal women prevent and recover from pelvic floor dysfunctions such as incontinence and prolapse.

At One Agora Integrative Health Clinic, we believe that optimal health and wellbeing is dependent on a healthy brain. Many times we also get locked in fight or flight (sympathetic) pathways and need help to calm the brain and reset these patterns. That's why we offer microcurrent neurofeedback as a non-invasive, drug-free approach to optimizing brain function and addressing a wide range of conditions.
As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines. One popular method to combat these signs of aging is the use of dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers have become increasingly popular due to their natural and safe composition. However, sometimes people may experience complications or wish to reverse the effects of the filler. It has also become more of a trend to reverse these procedures with many celebrities becoming public about dissolving filler to go back to a more natural look.

SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) is a condition in which an excessive amount of bacteria grows in the small intestine, leading to a wide range of symptoms such as bloating, gas, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. SIBO can result from various factors such as a weakened immune system, head injuries or concussions, chronic stress, use of antibiotics, and other medications, as well as a diet high in refined carbohydrates and low in fiber. Any of these factors can disrupt the communication between the brain and gut, leading to digestive problems and bacterial overgrowth.
