Traditional Chinese medicine and Acupuncture treats the patient, not the disease.

Acupuncture has been used for well over 3000 years and is currently an integrated part of East Asian health care systems. An acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of very small, fine needles into specific spots (acupuncture points) on the body in order to facilitate healing. There are over 400 acupuncture points on the body. The effect of the needles is multi-faceted:

Over the centuries, Chinese doctors have discovered correlations between stimulation of certain spots on the body and the subsequent increase or decrease in particular physiological and mental functions.
Needles affect the movement of an energy source called ‘qi’, which is stored along channels throughout the body. Qi is thought to be the foundation of life, and any interruption or insufficiency in this flow of Qi leads to disease.
Needles can treat local pain through breaking up fascial adhesions and release muscle trigger points. These actions result in the release of tension and relief of pain.

Osteopathic manual therapy focuses on the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the body’s structure, whether it is related to the pelvis, peripheral joints, visceral organs, nervous systems, venous system or spine. Osteopathic manual therapists (OMPs) use manipulations to the joints or organs and gentle oscillatory movements to correct biomechanical dysfunctions that are related to neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Additionally, they will also provide advice regarding exercises, diet and lifestyle to augment the body’s own healing capabilities. By restoring proper mechanics to an area, the therapist allows for improved function to reduce pain and to restore normal activity.

Our Massage Therapists consider each client’s individual concerns and tailor treatments to suit their particular needs and therapeutic goals.

One of the largest primary contact health care professions in Canada, chiropractors treat approximately 4.5 million Canadians annually with drug free, non-invasive, hands-on care. Chiropractors assess disorders related to the nervous system, joints, and muscles of the spine and extremities to provide a diagnosis and treatment of these disorders. Although well known for their adjusting, chiropractors also employ soft tissue treatment, rehabilitative exercise and education to help each individual’s needs.

Care under a chiropractor involves your input and adjustments will never be used without full consent.
