(Scottsdale,AZ) Arizona-based Vitanya Wellness Centers has developed a proactive approach to wellness by supporting the immune system and allowing a person to activate the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

One hundred million adults live in chronic pain,according to a 2011 report from the prestigiousInstitute of Medicine,an arm of the National Academy of Sciences. The implications for our society are huge,including the economic burdens. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act,affordable health care is on the mind of many Americans.

Health care professionals at Vitanya Wellness Centers have discovered how to alleviate symptoms by initially pinpointing the underlying chemical imbalances behind chronic illnesses. The non-invasive technology is known as bio-mapping,measuring frequencies found in the body. It represents a breakthrough in affordability for anyone who ‘can’t afford to be sick’,according to Dr. Rodney Ray,founder of Vitanya Wellness Centers.

This bio-frequency software maps the body’s natural stressors to help facilitate decisions about client health and wellness. The process also involves uniquely improving photobiotic energy balance and efficiency. This improvement may lead to the reduction of symptoms so results may be realized for allergy relief,sleeplessness,fatigue,autism,hormone imbalances,glaucoma and an array of other ailments.

Vitanya Wellness Centers is expanding its services through franchising to chiropractic offices and other wellness locations. The program represents an affordable,natural alternative to achieve overall health and wellness. And the first visit includes a FREE bio-scan.

Vitanya is the recipient of the 2013 Top Holistic Practitioner in Scottsdale Award. The company’s south Scottsdale location is located at 8010 E. McDowell Road,Suite 101,Scottsdale,AZ 85257,and its north Phoenix location is 18831 N. 19th Ave.,#152,Phoenix,AZ 85027. For more information,visit or call (480) 696-3800.
