Tammy Stewart, CHC

Meet Tammy Stewart, CHC

Tammy Stewart is a Certified Cellular Detoxification and Health Practitioner who has been passionately delivering customized detoxification and healing protocols serving the community and others across the world (virtually) since 2008.

She is one of a small group of health practitioners in the United States who study and work as experts on Cellular Healing.

Having overcome her own and her family’s neurotoxic illnesses using the latest unique multi-therapeutic strategies that help heal the cell, Tammy believes that all of us have control over our own health if the body is functioning at its optimum level.

The primary focus of her work at Health for a Purpose is to help reduce cellular inflammation and improve cellular function by removing interference such as heavy metal toxicity, bio-toxins, and poor nutrition. This is done through natural, multi-therapeutic strategies customized for your own body and condition.

Tammy is also one of the first health practitioners to have been approved and trained to use the FDA Cleared “Softwave Therapy System”, called The Stem Cell Machine, to help trigger regenerative effects on tissue including skin, bone, and nerves.

The Stem Cell Machine delivers a patented acoustic wave technology which is in use today as a standard for pain treatment in Europe.

It is a great complementary therapy providing results very quickly by reducing cellular inflammation, acute and chronic pain and injury and enhances performance for athletes or others whose work is physically demanding.

I have been a patient at Fifth Avenue Chiropractic for over 15 years and am as happy about my choice now as I was back then!  While each chiropractor’s touch is different, Dr. Staker continues the care that works for me. 

I suffered from daily headaches affecting my quality of life.  Even prescription pain medications did not help.  I tried Dr. Bryan Staker and after a few visits the headaches were gone.

SoftWave FAQs

  • What results should I expect from SoftWave Therapy?

    If you are a candidate for treatment, SoftWave therapy can provide both immediate and long-lasting results. After one SoftWave session, patients typically experience a 20-50% reduction in pain and improvement in mobility, lasting from a few hours to several days. Some patients require multiple sessions before experiencing improvement.

    To determine if SoftWave is a suitable treatment for you, schedule a $69 New Patient Appointment, where you will receive one SoftWave treatment session, and the provider will assess whether further treatment is appropriate.

    Unlike pain medications and injections, SoftWave treatment seeks to activate the body’s natural healing process at the cellular level to deliver genuine and long-lasting results.

  • What is the SoftWave treatment process like?

    SoftWave is a fast and convenient non-invasive procedure that usually lasts 10-15 minutes, with no downtime required for recovery. First, ultrasound gel is applied, then the SoftWave device is gently placed to deliver shock waves to the injured area. Most patients feel a gentle tapping or pulsing sensation, while some patients may experience mild pain or discomfort. The use of anesthesia or numbing agents is not necessary. Effective communication with the provider during treatment can help identify treatment hotspots and track progress.

Some doctors even use SoftWave in the operating room immediately after surgery, to activate the body’s healing process.

  • Does SoftWave therapy have side effects?

    Side effects from SoftWave therapy are minimal and non-restrictive. SoftWave does not cause bruising or swelling, although some patients may experience slight redness and soreness that typically subsides within one to two days. While recovery downtime is not usually needed, we recommend avoiding high-impact movements or exercise for the first 24-48 hours.
