UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and how it relates to Natural Choices Health Care. We wanted to share with you a few of the measures we are taking to ensure your safety and security during this time.

At this time Naturopathic appointments will be moving to telemedicine options only. This includes phone, FaceTime and Skype. If you have an upcoming appointment or would like to book an appointment and would like to take advantage of one of these options, please contact the office. Monica will not be seeing patients in person but can offer Reiki through remote options.

We recommend that you follow the recommendations put forth by the province of Nova Scotia. This means that if you’ve travelled internationally you should self-isolate for a period of 14 days even if you are symptom-free. If you do have any symptoms of COVID-19 you should contact 811 and should not be coming into the office.

Finally, if you require supplements and cannot make it into the office we can arrange for supplements to be delivered inside HRM. Please contact that office if this is the case and we will make arrangements.

Thank you for helping us help keep people safe and healthy during this difficult period.

At Natural Choices Health Care, we provide safe and effective treatments for people who are looking to take control of their health and those who have been unable to find relief through the more conventional health care routes.

 

This includes access to a variety of services such as Naturopathic Medicine, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy and Counselling Therapy, each one focused on providing you with the tools to reclaim your personal health.

Our Services

Massage Therapy

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.

 

Counselling Therapy

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

  • Stress
  • Worthiness
  • Relationships

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

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, and more.

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, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, homeopathy and supplementation.
