The registered massage therapists, acupuncturists, and skin consultants who own and operate Organic Body Wellness Clinic have more than 20 years of combined experience. They draw on this expertise to relieve not only the bodily pains of their patients, but also any mental tension due to stress or excessive sneezing. The staff fosters wellness with massage modalities including Swedish, shiatsu, and acupressure, and offers additional services such as acupuncture with organic herb facials.
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.
Holistic health specialist Laurie Vella imparts her training in a host of healing methods to promote patients' overall health and prevent future problems. After a 15-minute pretreatment consultation, clients embark on one of many nourishing services, such as acupuncture ($40 for 30 minutes), Reiki ($50 for one hour), or an aromatherapy massage ($40 for 30 minutes). Reward hands and feet for not switching places while you sleep with a reflexology treatment ($45 for feet, $35 for hands), or reset energy centres unsettled after a pogo-stick tournament with chakra balancing ($50 for one hour). Healing Hands Kingston also offers yoga, meditation, and life coaching, and consults with patients on healthy nutrition, beneficial herbs, and proper care of the funny bone.
At Nova Health, Dr. Kimberly Oxbro and Dr. Troy Neufeld bolster bodies with detoxifying infrared sauna treatments. Infrared lights heat up epidermises and frozen dinners, helping clear up skin conditions such as acne, eczema, scarring, and cellulite. During the 30-minute session, blood vessels expand and abate muscle and joint pain, and the body's raised temperature helps improve immunity. Meanwhile, sweat drips from bodies as chemicals evaporate and nefarious toxins escape in tiny hot-air balloons.
Dr. Paul Lacroix brings more than 20 years of chiropractic experience to his practice, treating both chronic and injury-related symptoms with adjustments, laser therapy, and exercise regimens. Defining health not merely as the absence of disease, but as the body's ability to be a smoothly operating machine, Dr. Lacroix thoroughly examines patients, takes x-rays, and gives consultations to determine a custom course of action. The whole-body approach that characterizes the chiropractic approach gives Dr. Lacroix a chance to diagnose and treat a wide array of symptoms. At home, patients can soak up more wellness wisdom with online videos that expound on chiropractic concepts, injury prevention, and exercise instruction.
The Spaaaganza event at The Tranquil Garden, a 6,200-square-foot day spa and wellness community, is an opportunity to sample the centre’s cornucopia of beauty and holistic treatments without a yearly membership. Each event offers 10–14 different 20-minute services, and past Spaaaganzas have included such stress-vanquishing resources as express manicures, facials, foot reflexology, Indian head massage, and acupuncture. Based on the spa-goer's treatment choice, each session has the potential to whisk away tension, pain, and bouts of sleep growling. Additional 20-minute treatments beyond the one included can be purchased at the event for $20 each.
