Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient healing system dating back thousands of years.
TCM practitioners view the body-mind process as an integrated whole and believe that disease is the result of imbalance within the whole. The physical body, mental-emotional state, environment, diet and lifestyle are viewed as equally important components in the maintenance of balance and prevention of disease. All organs and vital functions in the body are thought to be a constant continuum, influencing, controlling and restraining one another.

Modern allopathic (western) medicine separates the body and mind, emphasizes disease management, treats specific diseases and searches for certain micro-organisms to be treated with strong pharmaceutical medications. In contrast, TCM uses natural approaches to restore harmony, never separating the person from the mind, the spirit or the environment. A TCM assessment can detect subtle changes in the homeostatic balance of the body before it reaches the disease stage, allowing TCM treatment to emphasize the prevention of disease.

TCM treatment commonly includes a combination of the following techniques:
Acupuncture
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese Massage (Tui Na)
Cupping
Moxibustion

Chiropractic

Chiropractic comes from the Greek words “chiro” and “praxis” meaning: practice or treatment by hand. Chiropractors are primary healthcare providers who diagnose, manage, and prevent conditions involving muscles, joints and the nervous system. They are musculoskeletal specialists who seek to address the underlying cause of dysfunction or pain.

Chiropractors treat:

• back pain
• neck pain
• headaches
• sports injuries
• muscle strains
• joint injuries
• arthritis
• whiplash injuries
• extremity injuries
• and more!

What services and therapies can a chiropractor offer?
The staple of Chiropractic care is the adjustment. Chiropractors are specialists in manually adjusting joints of the spine and other joints of the body. However, Chiropractors are also trained in various soft-tissue therapies, rehabilitative exercises, nutritional counselling, various modalities, injury prevention, and lifestyle education. These treatments are used to relieve pain and improve function.

What is an adjustment (spinal manipulative therapy)?
A Chiropractic adjustment or spinal manipulative therapy is a highly-skilled and precise movement directed to the spine, which corrects joint motion, restores movement, and improves function. When a joint is adjusted, an air bubble may escape from the capsule resulting in a popping noise, similar to what happens when you crack your knuckles.

What are some benefits of Chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care can lead to improved movement, better posture, relief from headaches, back and neck pain, alleviation of pregnancy-related pain, prevention of work-related injuries, enhanced athletic performance, improvement flexibility, correction of gait problems and more.

Why is back health so important?
The spine protects the nervous system, which carries important messages throughout the body and interconnects body systems! Physical and emotional stress, which may be the result of repetitive activities at work, lifestyle, accidents or injuries, can result in pressure on nerves that exit the spine by the vertebrae. This is why Chiropractors will assess and treat the back even when symptoms are in the arms or legs.

Core + Pelvic Floor Movement Therapy

Giving birth is often compared to running a marathon and rightly so! Pregnancy and birth place great demands on the body similar to that of an athlete yet seldom do women ‘train’ for their birth.

Prepare To Push™ sessions use the fitness principle of specificity to help women train their body for labour and birth. Targeted movements that strengthen the core and pelvic floor, build endurance for the big day and release tension to facilitate birth are practiced and given to women as homework in preparation for delivery.

Core + pelvic floor restoration sessions work on rebuilding the inner core unit through alignment, breath work and movement. Starting with an assessment, you progress through restorative exercise, activities of daily living, and functional movement to ensure you have core confidence for all phases of life.
