Vital Flow

Vital Flow
In today's stress-filled world, it seems like everybody is looking for a way to optimize their health. There are many alternative treatments available, one of which is biofeedback technology. Traci Chivington and Delany Keating decided to bring this healing technology to Gunnison after they each experienced what some might describe as miraculous healing in their own lives. This ignited their passion for biofeedback technology and ultimately led them to establish Vital Flow. The status of one’s health is spiritually and vibrationally induced, electrically and chemically driven and biologically carried out. At Vital Flow, Traci and Delany work within all three to balance the body, maximize the body’s innate healing response and assist in the independent pursuit of greater health and vitality.

Delaney had extreme life stress and was diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disease. Through biofeedback treatment, she helped her body achieve homeostasis (balance). "Biofeedback is a stress training modality that works in communication with the body's energetic/electrical system," Delaney explained. "The subtlety of the stress training can have some highly beneficial results for the body and has been very powerful in releasing stress patterns in my body."

Traci woke up one morning in January of 2014 with no sight in one eye. What she didn’t know at the time was that she would be nearly blind for the next nine months. It was suggested that she get an MRI, which concluded that she had multiple sclerosis. "Over the next six months, I did what was recommended by several different medical professionals," Traci recalled. "After that, I decided to take my health into my own hands, because I truly believe my body has the power to heal itself."

Through her research, Traci explored many different therapies and practitioners, trying many detoxifying techniques and incorporating changes to her daily diet. In the process, Traci learned all about the vital role of healthy nutrition. "Along the way, I discovered I did not have MS, but that I was misdiagnosed and actually had Lyme disease," Traci explained. This revelation put her on the path that introduced her to biofeedback. "After my very first biofeedback session, I felt like a big weight had been lifted off my chest," she said. "After three biofeedback treatments in about eight weeks, I felt completely different."

It was these experiences that inspired Delany and Traci to start Vital Flow. Before doing so, the entrepreneurs contacted the West Central SBDC for assistance in properly setting up the practice. “Receiving consulting services through the SBDC was such a short cut for me,” Traci commented. “I would have wasted so much time trying to figure it all out on my own. I appreciate what the West Central SBDC was able to do for us as we started our business venture.”

Delaney added, “I especially appreciated the breakeven calculations and financial projections that the consultants provided. They even gave us the templates for the spreadsheets. Their expertise was invaluable!”

Traci and Delany now provide biofeedback, blood imaging, therapeutic massage and light therapy at Vital Flow in Gunnison. They are also traveling to Grand Junction and Denver to provide services as their client base rapidly expands across the state. They want to ensure that every Coloradoan understands that you are vital to the world, every day.
