SECA Body Composition Analysis

The Food and Nutrition Department is pleased to announce the unveiling of a new and exciting machine that is revolutionizing nutritional care for clients at The Center for Balanced Living.

The state of the art SECA Body Composition Analyzer allows our staff to make more precise treatment recommendations than ever before. The machine assesses clients’ fat mass, fat free mass, hydration status, cellular health, and skeletal muscle mass, providing our staff the ability to make highly individualized, scientific refinements to client treatment plans. 

Since purchasing the machine in November 2015, our team of Registered Dietitians has been working diligently to develop new protocols and nutrition interventions utilizing these data. This information can be potentially very triggering for people who have an eating disorder. 

For that reason we will only release measurement results to a client’s physician or dietitian.  Our team of dietitians is happy to meet with anyone being assessed to provide feedback on the meaning of these results. 

We are now ready to also open this machine to clients of our preferred providers and select referrals from the community at large.

Fees for a SECA analysis are paid out-of-pocket by the client:

* When paired with a nutrition assessment, $15.

* Individuals seeing a provider at The Center, $20.

* Individuals not seeing a Center provider, $50.
