The Wellness Center Association Welcomes You!

A Private National Association with Headquarters in
Springfield, Missouri

The WCA is a private membership association; it is not open to the public. This association is for people who have decided to take responsibility for their own health and who are motivated to seek knowledge about various therapies and modalities to accomplish high level wellness for themselves. As an Association we have discovered specific areas of stress, which harm the body’s ability to function – Cranial misalignment, imbalance of digestive enzymes, toxic, emotional or mental stress.

What do we offer and by whom

Douglas L. Hays has devoted his life to identifying stressors on the body and alleviating them. He began his education at Palmer Chiropractic College and was a traditional chiropractor for 14 years. In 1979 he was exposed to cranial work and in a short time he realized that spinal misalignment was almost always related to the position of the cranial bones. This led to him giving up his chiropractic practice to become a cranial specialist.

For the past 20 years, he has been dedicated to many types of cranial therapy. After becoming certified in NCR by Dr. Howell in 1996, along with yearly update training since that time, he is truly a cranial specialist! Dr. Loomis trained Douglas Hays in plant based enzyme therapy that assists the body in proper digestion of enzyme deficient foods. Improper digestion can place great undue stress on the body.

Douglas Hays has also created and taught Perception Therapy® to trained professionals and other interested parties. Perception Therapy® allows a person to identify and release emotionally caused interference in different parts of the body.

Note: The members assisting in the delivery of various therapies and treatment modalities provided to the members of the association do so in the capacity of fellow members. While they may be trained doctors and nurses, they are not providing services in that legal capacity. There is no doctor patient relationship available within the association.


Our Purpose

    1. This Association of members hereby declares that our main objective is to allow the natural healing forces of the body to express itself in each of us as health and wholeness. This is done by bringing ourselves into alignment with Natural law and through this expression regain, maintain and improve our health and vitality to new levels of wellness.
    2. We believe that our creator placed a force in all living things that expresses its self as life force. Without this nothing could exist. This force is what holds our universe together.
    3. We believe that all activities should take place in accordance with the natural law of God. We believe that all things done in accordance with natural law will ultimately have good results. It is our job to bring our body, mind and spirit in to alignment with natural law and to regard it in all our considerations and undertakings.
    4. We proclaim the freedom to choose and perform for ourselves the types of physical, nutritional and energetic modalities that we think best for evaluating our nutritional status and nourishing the normal function of our minds and bodies and for achieving and maintaining optimum wellness. We proclaim and reserve the right to include all health options that include, but are not limited to, alternative, investigational and experimental modalities practiced or used by any type of healers or practitioners the world over, whether traditional or non-traditional, conventional or unconventional.
    5. We believe that a person’s health is the responsibility of the individual. We believe that each person should decide for him or herself how they should be treated. We believe transforming our Dis-ease to wellness and wholeness is our God given right, and can only be done through natural law.
    6. We believe that the crisis care model for caring for the sick is out dated even though it at times is useful in saving lives. We believe in supporting and acknowledging nature in the healing process. This is done by removing stress and supporting naturally the needs of the body so it naturally returns to wellness and wholeness.
    7. The association will recognize any person (irrespective of race, color, or national origin) who is in accordance with these principles and policies as a member, and will provide a medium through which its individual members may associate for actuating and bringing to fruition the purposes heretofore declared.
