To understand what makes Lions Bridge Financial Advisors so special, consider a concern a client shared with Jayne Di Vincenzo, its president. The client’s new fiancée had a grown child with social/behavioral issues, but didn’t know where to turn. Jayne listened carefully, and based on experience with families with similar situations suggested they see a specialist to determine if the symptoms may be the result of Autism. The client returned relieved to finally have a diagnosis and plan for the adult child’s future - and now hers with her fiancée. Jayne and her team at LBFA believe in helping their clients any way they can. That helps explain why Lions Bridge Financial has grown so fast, with existing clients constantly referring new clients. And it helps explain why LBFA is a leading provider of financial services, helping clients get to and through retirement.

Imagine that you are working with a chiropractor, acupuncturist, naturopath, nutritionist and a homeopath for your health problems. Even better, imagine you have your healthcare team in one room and they are all working on your case together and they understand perfectly what each other does! You would feel like you were in great hands and getting the best of all the natural healthcare fields? If this sounds appealing to you then you need to be under the care of an Applied Kinesiologist. Applied Kinesiology (“AK”) is an advanced form of diagnosis in which every muscle in the body is related to an organ, gland or acupuncture meridian. Through testing specific muscles, the doctor can locate structural, biochemical and emotional dysfunction in the body and identify the proper method of correction. AK incorporates modalities such as Sacro-Occipital Technique, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Acupuncture Meridian Therapies, Chiropractic, Osteopathy, and Clinical Nutrition, to name a few. As mentioned above, the three basic factors responsible for optimum health are structure, biochemistry and emotions. These factors comprise an equilateral triangle called “the triad of health”. If one side of the triangle becomes deficient, poor health is the result. Dr. Constantinides utilizes Applied Kinesiology techniques to evaluate body function. Only by carefully observing all sides of this equilateral triangle can the total person be treated. Call today to see how we can help you.
