What is Acupuncture?
- Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world. Originating in China more than 5000 years ago, acupuncture today is used all over the world to treat and prevent disease.
How does Acupuncture work?
According to the National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, there are three mechanisms to explain the effect of acupuncture:
- Conduction of electromagnetic signals which speed up the release of endorphins and promote activation of the immune system
- Stimulation of opioid systems in the brain
- Changes in brain chemistry through release of neurotransmitters and neurohormones that help the body heal itself

What makes a Far-Infrared Sauna different?
- Far-Infrared Sauna is a low heat sauna. It operates at 40-50°C instead of 80-90°C like a traditional sauna.
- That hot air in a traditional sauna makes an impact on the inside of the lungs when breathing and that is why people with asthma don't do well in a traditonal sauna.
- There is also change in heart rate due to the extreme heat in a traditional sauna. The fast heart rate is the reason heart patients can’t go into regular saunas.
- Far-Infrared sauna is such a low, soft and comfortable heat that virtually no one is sensitive to it. Even people traditionally advised to avoid sauna, ie. heart patients, and asthmatics, can have their symptoms relieved in Far-Infrared saunas.
- Toxins accumulate from everyday life and are stored in fat cells. Whatever your body can’t easily eliminate via the liver or the kidneys, it sends off to the fat cells for future elimination via sweat.
- Far-Infrared sauna therapy causes considerable sweating. Sweating helps remove toxins from chemical exposure, from air, water, and food.
- Studies by the Mayo Clinic have shown that American soldiers exposed to Agent Orange removed 97% of dioxins from their bodies by sweating for 6 weeks. That’s after carrying it for 20 years!

Massage therapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario. It is a clinically proven treatment that relieves pain and discomfort stemming from stress, muscular overuse, injury and chronic pain syndromes.
Massage therapy is a comprehensive intervention involving a range of techniques to manipulate the soft tissues and joints of the body. The purpose of massage therapy is to prevent, develop, maintain, rehabilitate and augment physical function or relieve pain.
Clinically proven benefits of massage therapy:
- Increases blood and lymphatic fluid circulation
- Decreases pain and relieves tension
- Increases the effectiveness of the immune system
- Reduces swelling (edema)
- Faster healing
- Lowered heart rate and blood pressure
- Reduction of emotional stress
A Registered Massage Therapist physically stretches muscles, reduces muscles spasm and increases range of motion. In the case of injury, this results in not only pain relief, but also faster healing and long term strengthening.
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession whose purpose is to diagnose and treat mechanical disorders of the spine and musculoskeletal system with the intention of affecting the nervous system and improving health.
While Doctors of Chiropractic are best known for their manual adjustment techniques, the chiropractic approach to health care is holistic, stressing the patient’s overall health and wellness. Chiropractors recognize that many factors affect health, including exercise, diet, rest, environment, and heredity. They provide natural, drugless, non-surgical treatments and rely on the body’s inherent recuperative abilities.
Common conditions treated by Chiropractic:
- Low back pain and stiffness
- Neck pain and stiffness
- Sciatica / lower limb pain
- Shoulder / upper limb pain
- Carpel tunnel syndrome
- Headache (migraine, tension. cluster)
- Sport or work related injuries
- Fibromyalgia chiropractic care
- Stress related conditions
Chiropractors encourage their patients to be active in their own care and may recommend changes in lifestyle. For example, they may suggest changes in a patient’s eating, exercise, and sleeping habits in order to optimize their health. When appropriate, chiropractors consult with and refer patients to other health practitioners.
