About Inner Harmony Wellness Center

An Integrative Approach to Sustained Wellness and Self-Healing of Mind and Body

Inspired by personal growth and the realization of the need for a higher standard within healthcare, Dr. Peter Amato Ph.D., D.N.M. envisioned a wellness program that would unite both conventional and holistic/alternative medicine.  With that, Dr. Amato has created a truly unique wellness center that is a functional and integrative medicine practice. 

Our program is built on a foundational 5 Step Process:

1.  Restore Body PH

2.  Eliminate Infections

3.  Detox the Body

4.  Balance Hormones

5.  Promote anti-aging

As we move through these 5 steps of healing, we draw on a number of energy healing modalities, depending on what your body indicates.  Some of our modalities include SCIO biofeedback, Autonomic Response Testing, Red Light Therapy, Quantum Reflex Analysis, Emotional Repolarization Testing, Light Beam Generator Therapy, Bioptron Light Therapy, plus Nutritional Education and Weight Loss Therapy, full detoxification and immune boosting programs. 

We offer an overall Mind-Body approach to wellness that spans both traditional as well as Functional Medicine.  Our Strategic Vision emphasizes the importance of a holistic and integrative approach to self-healing.

We start with a 15 minute free, no obligation phone call to explain the process in more detail.  Ready to begin your journey to lasting health and vitality?  Click Here>>
