who We are

About Us

The Thermal Imaging Centers of America was founded with the goal of providing a safe, radiation-free, and pain-free health screening for general health as well as cancer detection.

Our founder, Kerry Press, was motivated by her own experience with cancer to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment for clients who are anxiously seeking answers to their prominent and potential health issues and concerns.

About Thermography


Thermography is a safe and noninvasive health screening technique that can detect signs of disease and dysfunction, even years before other mainstream screening techniques. Oftentimes, as in breast health screenings, thermal imaging may detect disease up to ten years earlier than mammography.

While other diagnostics such as ultrasound, radiography, and mammography show the body’s structure or anatomy, DITI (digital infrared thermal imaging) shows physiological and metabolic processes instead. This process provides a different, inside perspective on the systems throughout the body and a person’s overall well-being.

Kerry Press

After 20 years of climbing the corporate ladder at two different Fortune 100 companies, my life became a whirlwind when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and was forced to make some major life changes. Once I spent almost two years focused on fighting breast cancer, removing my breasts, and trying to put some semblance to my new way of life, I set out on a few missions. My first mission after losing my friend, Angela Pereira D’auria, to breast cancer was that of spreading the word, sharing my story, and helping others. I stepped into the public speaking circuit and spoke to audiences all over the country in my effort to help others.

Today I still continue to speak, educating others and helping them understand all of the amazing benefits of thermography. I will make myself available to you, your group, club, church, employer, etc., and present ALL for the good of thermography, FREE! Just reach out – I will make it happen! (That’s how important this is!)

Second, I created “The Pink Heals Project™,” where men contributed to the cause of helping others by wearing pink high heels in support of ALL the women in their lives and the women they know who have bared the burden of battling this dreaded disease. (I know, these are red- just go with it!) If you are interested in learning more about this project, comment or send me a PM; I’d love to share it with you.

And finally, in 2014, we opened our first thermal imaging clinic. Now there are three clinics in the Phoenix, AZ area. After having had my own battle with cancer and being in the circle of people who were “close to cancer” (on ALL DIFFERENT levels), I learned of thermography and knew I needed to know more!

Much time, commitment, expense, and learning went into my mission of bringing this medical technology to everyone I came in contact with and everyone I cared about.

Since starting my business, things have grown exponentially! My personal mission has become a purpose of helping others by providing FDA-approved, radiation-free, and PAINLESS health risk assessment screenings that aid in seeing angiogenesis via thermal emissions in the body that are indications of the early development of disease and dysfunction.

Thermography is growing to be the gold standard and the preferred health risk assessment screening for EVERYONE – men, women, the elderly, and children! And I am thrilled to be at the forefront of this change!

In Memory of Dr. Ben Johnson

Dr. Johnson was a renowned health expert and informative speaker, committed, and passionate about serving the increasing global need for integrative alternative cancer. He had three medical degrees, (M.D., N.M.D., D.O.). Medical Doctor, Naturopathic Medical Doctor, and Doctor of Osteopathy. He also had a Master of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Science in Biology.

Dr. Johnson was intensely interested in alternative medicines after reversing the effects of Lou Gehrig’s disease using unconventional medicine.

Dr. Johnson’s medical career spanned over thirty years, from his graduate work in immuno-pathology in 1976 to his work in concentration writing and speaking on staying healthy, especially for women in the area of breast health. He earned his Doctor of Osteopathy degree in 1981, his Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree in 2001, and his M.D. in 2004.

Dr. Johnson worked in both General Practice and Emergency Medicine from 1982 to 1996, serving as a U. S. Army Reserve Flight Surgeon Major for 13 years and a Senior Aviation Medical Examiner for the FAA. In 1997, Dr. Johnson began to formally combine conventional and complementary medicine, moving back home to Georgia and founding, in Atlanta, The Immune Recovery Foundation. Turning in 2004 to breast cancer research and breast health education, Dr. Johnson founded the International Cancer Foundation in Rossville, GA.

Dr. Johnson, or simply Dr. Johnson to his friends, patients, and colleagues, was committed to serving, and in many cases, healing cancer patients worldwide. Many patients can come to their doctor but not many doctors come to their patients. Dr. Johnson did this because many patients cannot or do not want to travel to another state or country for several months of treatment. Many patients do not want to leave family or need to continue to work making this a very practical approach.

Dr. Johnson published three books, The Secret of Health: Breast Wisdom, Healing Water, and the #1 bestseller The Healing Codes with Alex Loyd. Before passing, Dr. Johnson finished his latest book, “No Ma’amograms!,” emphasizing the significance of early breast cancer detection through Thermography. He highlighted that Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging is the sole imaging tool enabling early detection, often years ahead of what Mammograms can achieve.
