The initial consultation lasts approximately 1 ½ hours and includes a complete medical case history. The following areas will be discussed during the consultation: present and past medical history, family health, hereditary diseases, diet and exercise habits, medications, allergies and emotional well-being. The practitioner will review any medical diagnosis and perform any required physical examinations. The patient will be provided with a full treatment plan for any health challenges through the use of natural therapies including herbal medicine, vitamin and mineral therapy, nutritional counselling, lifestyle counselling, detoxification and cleansing programs. These programs are individually created specifically for each patient’s needs. All herbal medicines are individually formulated and compounded on site.

Follow-up consultations are 30-45 minutes long and are usually held every 1-4 weeks. In these sessions, progress evaluation will be examined and any challenges will be addressed. The patient will usually undergo a series of 5-10 follow-up appointments.

Lab Testing

The key to fast and effective diagnosis is our sophisticated battery of tests. The results of these tests give the practitioner exactly what they need to get the message your body would really like to send, if only it could. With this full battery of tests, we can usually see the complete picture of your health at its most fundamental, cellular level. Treatment programs become simpler, more direct and efficient, and they can actually cost much less than programs developed without testing. Tests can be done individually or a group of tests can be combined to form a panel.

Physiotherapist/Osteopath

w/ Janet Tinney

Pain is a symptom of a problem. By treating the root cause of the pain, rather than the symptom, lasting relief is achieved. Learning why you hurt, where you hurt, and solving the condition is why I consider my job to be the best in the world.

My Approach: Visits can be booked for half an hour or a full hour. My patients receive individual treatment in a private and comfortable setting. I do not use machines, but I do prescribe exercise when needed. I provide health and wellness advice, such as injury prevention.

Conditions That Are Treated:

  • Acute and chronic bursitis and tendonitis
  • Neck and back pain
  • Pain with breast feeding
  • Post-surgical problems
  • Problems from pulmonary disease
  • Problems from neurological disease
  • Incontinence
  • Pelvic pain
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

Examination Overview Includes:

  • Postural alignment
  • Muscle timing, recruitment, strength, flexibility
  • Connective tissue restrictions
  • Nerve entrapment
  • Arterial, venous, lymphatic circulation

The number of treatments varies. I expect my patients to feel a noticeable change in three or fewer treatments, with the majority of patients feeling the benefits after their first visit.
