Jason Young and Rebecca Huddleston, both doctors of chiropractic at Maracle Chiropractic, endorse preventative care. However, when patients come to them, it's often to find relief from existing pain, which is why they specialize in corrective care and family wellness. The duo begins by using technologically advanced methods to diagnose patients. These include PostureRay software to analyze spinal x-rays and plot abnormal deviations and thermography to scan for nerve function. Then, they set to work adjusting spines with numerous chiropractic methods to help clients sleep better, improve their ranges of motion, and participate in daily activities without pain.
It's no mistake that Maracle Chiropractic's trademark emblem is a turtle. After all, the centre's chiropractic doctors and therapists do everything in their power to strengthen spines and protect them from further harm. Rather than treat symptoms as they appear, they uncover the root causes of health problems and develop holistic treatment plans that promote long-lasting wellness. A family practice in every sense, Maracle Chiropractic focuses on prenatal care and treatments for babies and young children.

Dr. Paul Given and Dr. Sheldon Cook of King's Town Chiropractic employ spine-tuning savvy to help calibrate off-kilter physiques with chiropractic and acupuncture treatments. Sessions kick off with a consultation that allows patients to point out aches and pains, followed by a thermal scan to detect misaligned spines and spot frayed nervous systems. Like a radiographic paparazzo, an x-ray stealthily captures images of eye-eluding bones to help the chiropractors identify wayward discs intent on imitating Pangaea's drift. Once bodyscapes have been thoroughly scrutinized, a report detailing the exam's findings is whipped up along with a plan for treatment designed to help alleviate individual ailments including headaches and sciatica. Chiropractic adjustments then unsnarl tangled spines, gently coaxing errant vertebrae back into place to help restore suppleness to over-taxed dorsal planes. Alternatively, acupuncture treatments utilize strategically placed needles to deflate tension and imbue bodies with a sense of balance and tranquility. Patients emerge from sessions feeling as relaxed and agile as a cheetah raking a zen garden.
Sacred Journeys Healing Arts Centre's Cheryl Hiebert, M.Div. believes all humans have the potential to lead empowered and healthy lives by looking inward. In addition to doling out wellness tips on television, the lifelong holistic coach is certified as a practitioner of a variety of energy-based modalities, including Usui and Karuna reiki, Emotional Freedom Technique, and angel therapy. Her clients report to Sacred Journeys for both workshops and one-on-one sessions, seeking the clarity and guidance she has gained working with such spiritual heavyweights as Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, and Jiminy Cricket.
In addition to supporting the lowered stress and well-being of clients, the Centre directs energy toward charitable causes such as Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre, Girls Inc.—an organization dedicated to the empowerment of young women—and Sheba's Haven Rescue, which rescues palliative-care dogs and teaches them to bark meditative mantras.
Using holistic health techniques in a community setting, Pauline Vaughan, D.Ac. treats a broad range of ailments at budget-friendly prices at Limestone Community Acupuncture. Needling sessions occur in a calming community room, where patients relax together in their own recliners and acupuncturists insert fine, sterile pins into specific points on the body in an effort to trigger healing effects. Therapists may also target their needle placement to ease stress or insomnia, alleviate allergy symptoms, or promote fertility. The communal environment not only helps the clinic offer services at low prices, but the collective stillness enhances the sense of well-being and tranquility, similar to group meditation and gardens full of human statues.
