Coming from the Traditional Chinese Medicine healthcare system, acupuncture is a common modality used to create a neuroendocrine response. Your neuroendocrine system refers to the aspects of the brain and body that regulate chemicals responsible for hormone balance, mood, immune strength, digestive health, stress, inflammation, and more. Acupuncture is the use of hair-thin, stainless steel needles or pins that are inserted into the body along specific channels. The channels are associated with internal organs like the liver, spleen, and heart, and with specific tissues like blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, and fascia. The needles interact with the flow through these channels, and stimulate an electrochemical change which affects the physiology of the associated organs and tissues. Acupuncture alone has been shown to have efficacious results in treating conditions such as depression, anxiety disorders, insomnia, pain, gas and bloating, IBS, Crohn’s disease, skin conditions, sciatica, arthritis, headaches, menstrual issues, weight gain/loss, and addictions. Our acupuncturist has extensive training in Nutrition & Diet Therapy, Moxibustion, Cupping, and Acupuncture. As a holistic practice, Traditional Chinese Medicine encompasses all of these modalities in each session, according to the client’s individual health goals and needs.
Chiropractors are primary health care professionals concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and maintaining overall health. There is an emphasis on both manual treatments (spinal adjustment, mobilizations and soft-tissue therapy) and active rehabilitation. Hands on therapy helps to relax the nervous system/ improve movement while exercise, stretching and postural awareness maintain strength and prevent recurrent injury. Care is patient-centred and individualized to lifestyle, personal preferences and goals. Our Chiropractors believe in the value of working in conjunction with mainstream medical professionals to provide the best possible patient care and outcomes.
Counselling is the skilled and principled use of relationship to facilitate self- knowledge, emotional acceptance and growth and the optimal development of personal resources.

Counselling relationships will vary according to need but may be concerned with developmental issues, addressing and resolving specific problems, making decisions, coping with crisis, developing personal insights and knowledge, working through feelings of inner conflict or improving relationships with others.
