Snelgrove Chiropractic supports clients with a multifaceted approach to health and wellness, including massage therapy and postural analysis to rerack out-of-joint body systems. Before the treatment, registered massage therapist Carrie Creamer surveys corporeal landscapes, indentifying tension and problem spots. She then dispatches stress through techniques learned from working alongside physiotherapists, kinesiologists, sports doctors, and the entire Care Bears cast. After soft tissue is moulded back to its natural Play-Doh consistency, customers will receive a complimentary postural consultation and analysis to impart observational insights on alignment.
The form of acupuncture known as Korean Orthodox Saahm Acupuncture, or KOSA, treats patients using less needles inserted at shallower depths while achieving fast and long lasting results. According to KOSA, the methods were invented about 400 years ago by Saahm, a Korean ascetic who, upon his death, took the practice's secrets to his grave. His books were rediscovered in the 1950s, however, and they became the basis of a new school of thought on the medical technique. Today, the acupuncturists at KOSA Acupuncture use Saahm's findings to relieve arthritis, allergies, symptoms caused by cancer, bronchitis, multiple sclerosis, and acute or chronic ailments.
Doctor of Chiropractic James Wawrow leads the skilled staff at Global Wellness Chiropractic and Laser Centre, which has tended to backs and bodies with wellness programs for two decades. The chiropractic caregivers and certified laser therapists treat each patient's body as a synchronized organism, rather than as a cluster of disparate systems held together with tape. Traditional chiropractic care, including exams and adjustments, can address concerns such as lower-back pain, headaches, and sciatica. But the practitioners also move clients toward optimal health with the aid of low-level lasers, which, when applied to acupuncture points, can channel the body's flow of energy to promote healing.

For years, chronic pain plagued Mark Rogers. He’d tried everything—visits to the chiropractor, traditional bodywork, even back surgery. But it wasn’t until he stumbled upon Bowen therapy that he finally found relief. Originating in Australia, Bowenwork shares few characteristics with other forms of bodywork. Instead of subjecting the body to forceful realignment, the methodology incites self-healing with gentle, precise movements aimed at the muscles, tendons, and nerves. During a typical session, the Bowen practitioner will deliver these moves in a series of patterns, stepping out between each series to allow the brain and body time to process the effects. Within an hour, some clients will feel a reprieve from afflictions ranging from back pain to asthma and depression. Mark also specializes in post-concussion symptoms and issues with infertility. According to Mark, the majority of clients notice a change for the better within three to five sessions.
