Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints.

Chiropractic

Doctors of Chiropractic are health professionals concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors are taught to evaluate the musculoskeletal system as a functionally integrated system that may become symptomatic (pain) when there is dysfunction among any of the parts. Chiropractors use many different physical modalities to treat these impairments with an emphasis on manual treatments including very specific manipulation and mobilization of joints.

Laser Therapy :: Theralase Cold Laser Therapy

Cold laser is a non-invasive, non-toxic treatment methodology that is able to be used for numerous types of acute and chronic pain. The Theralase® system works by delivering billions of photons to the tissue surface driving this energy down to the damaged cells that require this energy for healing. Light energy of the correct wavelength(color) and power is able to dramatically increase the healing rate of damaged cells; thus allowing the body to heal itself at an accelerated rate.

The Theralase® laser is currently being used by the Toronto Blue Jays.

Active Release Techniques (ART)

ART is a patented, state-of-the-art soft tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. ART was originally used for elite athletes, but its now findings it’s way into occupational and repetitive strain disorders. Through the use of specific movements with precisely directed tension, ART breaks up scar tissue, removes waste products, and restores normal joint mechanics. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART.

Acupuncture

Neuroanatomical acupuncture is the term used to describe the acupuncture approach most commonly integrated by chiropractors, physiotherapists and physicians into practice.
It is used to stimulate the release of natural cortisol and endorphins that reduce inflammation and pain, as well as promote tissue regeneration through increased circulation. It can also help by releasing tight and activating inhibited muscles. In fact, Tennis elbow, low back pain and sciatica have all had acupuncture recommended as part of therapy by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Naturopathic

Naturopathy, or naturopathic medicine, is a system of medicine based on the healing power of nature. Naturopathy is a holistic system, meaning that naturopathic doctors (N.D.s) strive to find the cause of disease by understanding the patient as a totality of body, mind, and spirit. Most Naturopathic Doctors use a wide variety of therapies and techniques (such as nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and acupuncture).

There are two areas of focus in naturopathy: one is supporting the body’s own healing abilities, and the other is empowering individuals to make lifestyle changes necessary for the best possible health. While N.D.s treat both short bouts of illness and chronic conditions, their emphasis is on prevention of disease and patient education.
