Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. It is based on the theory that energy, called qi or chi, flows through and around your body along meridian pathways.
Bring Balance Back Into Your Life
Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through the skin at strategic meridian points on the body. By inserting needles into specific points, acupuncturists help re-balance the energy flow. Acupuncture is an excellent complimentary treatment to conventional therapies. More about Acupuncture

Using a variety of natural skills and techniques, we address a range of concerns that define the core of female health. From fertility to prenatal and postnatal care, to menopause and even family planning, our therapists are here to help you live pain-free.
The ability for us to stabilize through our feet depends on the body’s lines of gravity as well as the ground reaction forces. If the feet are not aligned properly, the biomechanics of the entire body will be altered. A Physiotherapist can help mobilize, align, strengthen and re-train the foot and ankle complex as well as address any other physical compensations that have resulted.
Occasionally, a trauma can create abnormal strain on a growing body. We believe that creating balance in the body is the key to living a pain-free life, a process that begins very early in life, and will allow your children to grow under the most optimal conditions.
As we age, we need mobility and stability to accomplish daily tasks. Over time, however, many of us develop movement patterns that often cause more harm than good. Our natural methods will restore range of motion while building muscle.
Prevention of many health issues is one of our core beliefs because through preventative measures many other potentially worse conditions may be avoided. Our approach of blending the science of medicine with the art of healing actually has a great number of general health and wellness benefits, while having amazing preventative potential.
