Dr. Travis Baker has a mission to empower individuals with their overall health and well-being. As an avid learner and researcher, he is always looking for ways to further assist in a patient’s recovery. Recently, he completed post-graduate certification in Medical Acupuncture and completed his fellowship through the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture (IAMA). In addition, he is trained and certified in Facial Enhancement & Cosmetic Acupuncture. His current endeavor is completing diplomat status through the IAMA. Acupuncture is a neurological phenomenon that works by signaling the brain and the nervous system to release various chemical messengers in the body, including painkillers called endorphins. These innate, morphine-like chemicals influence the body’s awareness of pain, relieve it, and promote a feeling of well-being. The human body has an instinctive intelligence to heal itself and acupuncture is used to stimulate this innate response. Once people have experienced the benefits of acupuncture they become more in tune with their own bodies and realize they need to listen to the little warning signals, which may have been ignored for so long.

Balanced Body Acupuncture & Chiropractic

Dr. Travis Baker graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, was a member of four Big XII championship teams, and continued his doctorate degree to graduate cum laude from Cleveland Chiropractic in 2011. His passion is to make people aware of how amazing their bodies are and true healing begins from within. Flexion-Distraction is the adjusting technique used at Balanced Body. He uses a precisely engineered table which decompresses the disc space and mobilizes the joints by providing a slow movement similar to a wave in the ocean. Therefore, it creates an opening and stretching effect to the vertebrae in your spine, no twisting. Flexion-Distraction is a safe, gentle technique with federally funded research and documentation. Nerve function and communication is critical in your body’s ability to heal, repair, and preserve good health.

In addition to his education in chiropractic and acupuncture, Dr. Baker also holds post-graduate certifications:

  • National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)
  • Active Release Technique (ART) – FULL BODY
  • Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehab (FAKTR)
  • Flexion-Distraction
