Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine treat an astounding variety of issues, and offer valuable constitutional support and wellness benefits to keep you and your family healthy. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) looks at symptoms specific to an individual and describes their cause from a combination of imbalances within lifestyle, psyche, nutrition, environmental stress, and trauma. Different herbs are combined into a formula that is designed to adapt to the individual patient. As a dietary supplement, Chinese herbs can boost internal deficiencies as well as eliminate harmful substances that accumulate pathologically. Chinese Herbal Medicine is an important adjunct treatment method to acupuncture.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting very fine, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on the body. The points are located on the meridians, where Qi (vital energy), flows through the body. There are hundreds of acupuncture points on the body. Different acupuncture points are chosen based on each patient’s individual constitution and symptoms.


CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Chiropractors practice primarily using their hands, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventative care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, depending on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a history, performing an examination and establishing a diagnosis, a chiropractor can develop and ca... Read More

Chiropractors practice primarily using their hands, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventative care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints. Chiropractors use a combination of treatments, depending on the specific needs of the individual patient. After taking a history, performing an examination and establishing a diagnosis, a chiropractor can develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment/management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

One of the most common therapies a chiropractor uses is spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), which can comprise a variety of adjustment techniques. Specific training in SMT allows chiropractors to provide highly-skilled and precise adjustments to the vertebrae of the spine, correcting joint motion to restore proper movement and improve function.

For many conditions, such as low back pain, chiropractic care is the primary method of treatment. When a multi-disciplinary approach is advisable, a chiropractor will coordinate care with other health care professionals. Where other conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical or other treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition.

Chiropractic care may also be used to provide symptomatic relief for patients with chronic conditions. There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Headache
- Whiplash
- Strains and sprains
- Repetitive stain injury (RSI)
- Work and sports injuries
- Arthritis
- Limited range of motion in the back, shoulder, neck and limbs

GRASTON THERAPY

Graston Therapy is an instrument assisted soft tissue treatment used on the body to restore range of motion, decrease and eliminate pain and restore function. This treatment breaks down scar tissue, tight muscle tissue as well as restrictions in the fascia, increasing blood flow and oxygen to the area.

Clinical Applications (Not Limited to)

- Plantar Fasciitis/heel pain
- Wrist Pain (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
- Neck Pain/Headaches

- Shoulder Pain/Rotator Cuff Tears
- Hamstring Strain/IT Band Issues
- Shin Splints
- Trigger Finger
- General Scar Tissue
- General Muscle Tension/Knots
- Women's Health: Post Mastectomy/Caesarean Scarring

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice that stimulates certain points on the body with a fine needle in order to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions. The acupuncture needles stimulate the body's natural immune response to heal specific areas in the body, open up blood vessels to allow for specific healing properties and blood flow, decreasing inflammation and creating an increase in oxygen for healing and recovery. Acupuncture increases endorphins, serotonin and dopamine, also allowing for certain analgesic effects, relaxation, mood improvement and recovery in motor function.

Acupuncture integrates exceptionally well with other treatments.

Clinical Applications (Not limited to)

- Low Back Pain
- Migraines and Headaches
- Dental Pain
- Fibromyalgia
- Osteoarthritis Symptoms
- Chronic Back Pain

After spending 10 wonderful years being a full time mom to my two amazing boys, I decided to go back to school and take the second year advanced Massage Therapy course at the Alberta Institute of Massage in Red Deer.

As we are a very active family in hiking, biking, skiing, camping, as well as many team sports, Massage Therapy allows me the flexibility to still be present with my family while maintaining a career that I love.

I have always been fascinated with the human body and how it works, and always wanted a career in the health field. Massage Therapy seemed like a perfect fit for me after studying kinesiology in college while playing volleyball on scholarship. Understanding the aches and pains that came with sport and knowing how to treat them has made me a comfortable and confident massage therapist today.

Throughout the program, I have taken an interest in oncology massage as well as other conditions, and hope to add more specified training in these areas to my education in the near future.
