Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care addresses joint problems (called subluxations) anywhere in the spine or extremities that can cause poor postures, abnormal spinal curvatures, malfunctioning muscular, neurological, and organic systems. A subluxation exists where bones, especially those of the spine become misaligned or lose their normal range of movement. These problem sites irritate local nerves, which interferes with proper communication between your brain and body. Using highly skilled, gentle adjustments these unhealthy effects on your body are reduced and corrected. Chiropractic is the third largest health care profession in Canada and a leader in natural, complementary and alternative healing. The Manga Report (a milestone study by the Ontario Ministry of Health) concluded that chiropractic is safer, more effective and more scientific, than any other treatment available for low-back pain.

    Acupuncture Therapy:

    Acupuncture Therapy is an ancient Chinese medical technique that employs fine, sterile needles to stimulate energy channels (also called meridians) in the body to restore balance and harmony. This is done by stimulating specific points in the body that have been shown to give specific healing effects. The Chinese has mapped these points over a period of about 5 thousand years. Recently, Electromagnetic research has confirmed their locations.

    The World Health Organization has stated that acupuncture is effective for:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Neuralgia (nerve pain), and nerve paralyses
  • Recuperation after strokes or transient ischemic attacks

  • Shiatsu Massage Therapy

    Shiatsu is a relaxing therapeutic massage from Japan that is based on over 4,000 years of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Literally translated, it’s the Japanese word meaning “finger pressure”. As a result it’s often referred to as acupuncture without needles, or acupressure.

    The intention of shiatsu is to relax your muscles and balance your Qi (vital energy of life). You will feel relaxed as deep tension is released from your body and your nervous system reaches a parasympathetic mode. Its activation provides a unifying experience of body, mind, spirit and environment. Only once this is achieved will your body begin to heal and rejuvenate itself.

    Regular shiatsu treatments help to maintain your optimum health by improving your circulation, strengthening your immune system and reducing the symptoms of stress, anxiety and pain.

    Shiatsu Therapists do not use oils during a treatment. Combining acupressure with stretching, to achieve balance within your body, they tailor the pressure to what your body requires using their thumbs, palms and elbows. You will feel relaxed as deep tension is released from your body and your energy begins to flow freely. This activates your body’s healing power.
