A Chiropractic Doctors' education teaches them to look at the relationship between the nervous system and the structure of your spine. When our body has restricted or misaligned joints, it can cause nerve and joint irritation and even nervous system dysfunction. An 'adjustment' is the gentle pressure applied to improve movement in these restricted areas. Your Chiropractor will asses, then diagnose any of these dysfunctions then use an appropriate technique to treat the area of concern.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

TCM Acupuncture is the insertion of tiny needles in the body to bring it back into its natural healing state. Acupuncture helps to regulate our nervous system to allow our body to heal properly. Essentially turning "on" our body's natural healing mechanisms, it is used to treat fertility, support IVF, regulate hormones, headaches, digestive concerns and so much more.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy is the manipulation of the body's soft tissues. It is used for a multitude of different reasons including stress relief, pain management, relaxation, rehabilitation, and general wellness. Massage therapy uses different techniques and pressures depending on the patients needs.

Red Light Therapy

The WAVE Red Light consists of two lights. The Red Light penetrates the skin 1-2mm deep, and the Near Infrared Light penetrates deeper, around 2-3mm deep. Each of these lights boosts the mitochondrial function of our cells. This means ATP production is enhanced which translates to better cellular health. The benefits include: healthier skin, better injury recovery time, reduced inflammation, improved blood flow, less pain, more energy, enhanced collagen production, better quality sleep + hormone balancing
