4 TECHNIQUES TO TRY
1. CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
Chiropractic treatment is more than a massage. Due to Dr. Bekic’s knowledge in the field of health sciences, he will improve the functioning and wellbeing of your musculoskeletal system by using techniques such as adjustments, and soft tissue therapy. Depending on what the nature of your ailment is, the approach will differ.
Usually, a chiropractor intervenes when the patient has suffered an injury in the arms, neck, legs, back, and so on. However, he can also enhance your general health through methods that assist you in relaxing the body and mind while relieving pain, tension, and other potential discomforts in the process.
Ancient Chinese medicine relies on the body’s energy canals to stimulate health. When illnesses arises, the philosophy behind the practice believes it is due to a blockage in the meridians through which our vital qi flows. By stimulating various pressure points, acupuncture aims to clear them and stimulate organic healing processes.
Patients suffering from lower back pain, chronic neck pain, knee osteoarthritis, and headaches have all exhibited visible improvements following this line of therapy. In addition to this, acupuncture is a relaxing experience that puts your mind at ease while treating the aches in the body. Both our naturopathic doctors, Dr. Upcott and Dr. Martinello can improve your sleep and emotional wellbeing, as well as your digestive processes using acupuncture.
3. GENERAL MASSAGE
Getting a massage every once in a while is a great way to reconcile the body and the mind. By manipulating, rubbing, and strategically pressing your skin and tissue in all the right places, this type of therapy effectively reduces the incidence of pain, stress, and tension. Thus, it has the ability to better your quality of life and put your mind at ease.
In addition to this, it also helps diminish the symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, headaches, fibromyalgia, joint pain, injury-related soreness, and digestive issues, among others. What is more, its directness often triggers feelings of comfort and connection in patients, which is another tool on the path towards total repose.
The main appeal of massages lies in the fact that sessions require no prior preparation. You just schedule an appointment with one of our registered massage therapists Shelby or Laurie, show up, and inform the therapist on what ails you. Then, they will proceed to handle the problem areas and promote their recuperation.
4. REIKI THERAPY
Reiki therapy is a form of alternative therapy commonly referred to as energy healing. It emerged in Japan in the late 1800’s and is said to involve the transfer of universal energy from the practitioner’s palms to their patient.
Reiki therapy heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
