At Highgate Sports Clinic, Doctor of Chiropractic Ranjit Sandhu brings his chiropractic expertise to a staff of holistic healers. Seeing aches and pains as precursors to greater health problems, the doctor restores balance to the spine and nervous system as a means to heal the entire body and prevent illness. He treats patients with a range of chiropractic services, including adjustments to spinal bones that have lost their natural position, evaluations using heat-sensing tool, and adjustments of the extremities, such as feet. If chiropractic care is not the proper solution to a patient?s ailment, Dr. Sandhu may refer them to one of his colleagues, such as Di Wu, an acupuncturist, or Ivana Delmars, a holistic-health coach.
Inside WonderPoint Wellness Centre’s eight treatment rooms—two with double beds—a team of licensed acupuncturists and massage therapists alleviate symptoms such as allergies and chronic pain with treatments that promote natural healing. The glow of himalayan crystal salt lamps purifies the air as a male or female massage therapist performs the tuina technique, a form of massage therapy that applies pressure to specific points on the body. Needles take the place of hands during acupuncture treatments, where acupressure points are stimulated to unblock energy paths. Literally meaning “to scrape away fever,” the practice of gua sha stimulates the immune system as a staff member scrapes lubricated skin with a piece of jade. Consultations allow practitioners to recommend the most beneficial treatments based on clients’ needs or penchants for wearing bubble wrap.
Apex Chiropractic fuses the ancient Chinese healing of acupuncture with a full slate of modern lasers, body sculpting, and pain management techniques. Chiropractors offer both traditional adjustments and no-crack impulse adjustments that restore balance through super-fast, focused pressure. Shock-wave and LiteCure laser therapies help stimulate recovery and reduce inflammation, and massage therapy and naturopathic therapy offer a drug-free path toward pain management and healing.
Using a wide range of state-of-the-art pulse lasers, the clinic's talented technicians effectively wipe out unwanted hair from the body's jungly regions. Via particular wavelengths and repeated zappings, lasers are able to infiltrate the skin and eliminate fuzz, decreasing the reappearance of hair as follicles shed over a period of weeks and roots get reabsorbed into the body. Unlike argyle socks and babies in a nursery, customers aren't allowed to mix and match treatment areas; all three procedures must be applied to the same skin section.
Registered Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner Jong Rea Roh anchors his practice at ON Acupuncture Clinic in the ancient Chinese concept of chi, the life energy that controls the body’s health and vitality. His treatments rely on kick-starting the body’s ability to heal itself. Gentle therapies seek to unblock energy passageways clogged by imagined inner tubes, thereby bringing the body back into balance. Jong Rea Roh addresses discomfort that spans all bodily systems, from musculoskeletal pain to digestive discontent and even psychological concerns such as depression and anxiety.
