Martin Bales, LAc
Martin grew up working with his father, Maurice Bales, at Bales Scientific, Inc., a designer, and manufacturer of medical devices. Maurice’s first two machines were infrared cameras — the same model that Martin uses in his practice today. His father’s second invention and the popular medical device was the Photonic Stimulator — the machine used for photon therapy.
After receiving his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Virginia, Martin returned to work with his father for a few years, this time helping to both engineers the machines and train doctors how to use them. Martin decided he liked working with patients more than engineering project management, so he decided to return to school to study Traditional Chinese Medicine — acupuncture, Chinese herbology, and other modalities.
Over the course of Pacific College’s 4-year master’s program, Martin studied the effects of photon therapy in combination with acupuncture for pain management. He was very impressed with the results and now offers this innovative combination therapy at the Center for New Medicine.
Dr. Bales has worked extensively with cancer patients, starting with a 1-year internship on the Oncology floor of Rady Children’s hospital in San Diego. At Cancer Center for Healing, Dr. Bales runs the Photon, Class IV Laser, PEMF, and Acupuncture therapies for Cancer patients. These therapies provide both primary and adjunctive-focused treatments to address increasing bioavailability of Hyperbaric Oxygen and IV therapies and providing non-invasive pain management when needed.
Our philosophy at Cancer Center for Healing is to preserve our patients’ dignity and quality of life through non-invasive integrative treatments.
At Cancer Center For Healing, we shy away from the toxic aspects of conventional medicine by using drugs and surgery only when such intervention is really necessary. None of our treatments have negative effects on your life. We focus on therapies that support the body’s innate defenses and healing mechanisms by determining the root cause of your cancer.
We’ve had the pleasure of helping thousands of cancer patients on their road to recovery. From prevention phases to Stage IV diagnoses, we’re always inspired by our patients’ dedication to healing. We’ve treated folks from all backgrounds and walks of life, and we’ve seen even the most dire cases reach and stay in remission with our treatments. Here are just a few of the inspirational testimonials and survivor stories we’ve witnessed at Cancer Center for Healing told by the patients themselves.
