Acupuncture is a natural, non-invasive, drug-free solution ~ a compliment to any and every treatment plan. At its simplest, it is a traditional Chinese healing method that uses hair fine needles to balance the flow of energy, known as qi, within the body.
Your body is innately programmed for optimal health. It will always reach for well-being. It is the things we are exposed to or things we do that impair the body’s natural ability. When our systems are out of balance disease appears. The term disease can be as broad as any dis-ease (imbalance); from something not feeling right to a terminal illness. Anywhere along this spectrum acupuncture can help – whether providing a full cure from allergies or helping to manage symptoms (nausea, pain) of palliative care.
Fortunately in the world of massage therapy there are many different styles and approaches and many practitioners who specialize. So a couple of styles that are different are sports massage-quite vigourous deep tissue- performance oriented and spa day soothing, light- music,oils, wraps scrubs -spoiling yourself oriented.
Monica’s style is different again. She has an integrated therapeutic approach focused on the facilitation of healing in a client’s body, mind and spirit. She provides individualized treatments to optimally support a client gain their healing goals. Most clients remain clothed. She does not use oils. She likes clients to be warm and comfortable on the treatment table with pillows and blankets.
Many health problems can be treated by making healthier lifestyle choices through naturopathic or conventional medicine and other therapies.
Counselling Therapy can help with finding new ways to approach stressful situations, changing negative beliefs and habits, navigating the loss of a loved one and changing the way we deal with difficult relationships. Mental health problems too are preventable, manageable and treatable with Counselling Therapy (Psychotherapy).
We provide counselling therapy for people in the following areas
Our compassionate, mindfulness-based therapeutic counselling will help you get to the root of the problem so you can heal, and live with greater wellbeing.
Naturopathic Medicine is a system of medicine that understands that the body has the ability to heal itself if given the proper environment.
It uses a mixture of both ancient and modern diagnostic techniques to piece together a person’s situation and to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. These techniques include: thorough patient history and physical examination, blood work, special laboratory testing, Chinese tongue and pulse diagnosis, homeopathic intake, orthopedic testing, etc.
ND’s specialize in prevention and treatment of both acute and chronic illness using non-invasive treatment modalities and life management.
Treatment is very individualized and can consist of dietary counseling, botanical medicine, chiropractic adjustments, massage, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, homeopathy and supplementation.
