At Spa Namaste at Richmond Hill Natural Therapies, the scent of aromatherapy oils wafts through the air in and around tropical plants and fireplaces, all arranged according to the principles of feng shui. This design is intended to create a relaxing and positive environment for clients. As music plays, the team of massage therapists, chiropractors, and naturopathic doctors steps in to help clients feel at ease during services that range from organic facials to acupuncture and nutritional counseling. Massage therapies include lomi hawaiian-temple bodywork, which utilizes long, flowing strokes, and Thai massage, a therapy that combines yoga and Ayurveda. Other treatments include craniosacral therapy, which aims to improve how the central nervous system functions, ensuring that humans don’t try to eat with their ears or hear with their mouths.
In the early 2000s, Doctor of Chiropractic Guy Bahar of The Posture Clinic began to notice a disturbing trend in the postures of his patients. Heads started to jut forward, upper backs hunched over, and chests caved inward. Dr. Bahar theorized that motions associated with a technology-heavy lifestyle—including slumping in front of computer screens, hunching over to read handheld devices, and lugging around heavy pieces of particle accelerators—was steadily causing the public to develop poor postural habits over time. As a chiropractor, he believed that these habits were interfering with the nervous system in general and the spine in particular, inhibiting healthy nerve function and causing chronic pain or fatigue as a result. His signature posture-correcting regimen can correct these conditions with a number of different treatment modalities, each of which promotes neuromuscular health and encourages patients to maintain a towering posture.
Initial assessments can begin with a battery of imaging scans, which can use thermography, x-rays, or surface EMG scans to gain invaluable insight into the body's structure and function. From there, Dr. Bahar and his staff of therapists can treat patients' particular conditions with muscle-relaxing massages, acupuncture sessions, and chiropractic micro-adjustments that completely avoid twisting the head or the neck.
My Natural Health Centre?s team of trained technicians and licensed massage therapists keep their clients in tip-top shape with holistic services performed in a 1,850-square-foot facility. Traditional Chinese treatments are a large part of the menu, including services such as cupping, an ancient massage techniques designed to detoxify the body, and Chinese herbal facials that use a combination of massage techniques and plant-based ingredients to balance the body and mind.
The centre also offers chiropractic care at the hands of a licensed practitioner, who relieves tight spines by manipulating joints until they release air bubbles and the secret combo to the body?s internal lock box. Acupuncture sessions work to increase the body?s internal energy and exercise rehabilitation to reduce the pain of muscle and joint injuries.
Five years after graduating from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, Doctor of Chiropractic Haydene Lee opened Bayview North Family Chiropractic. As the name suggests, the practice favors chiropractic services for the entire family?including treatments for ear infections, pregnancy-related woes, and posture correction?but it's not restricted to them.
That's because Dr. Lee has brought aboard a diverse staff of health professionals that includes fellow CMCC alums and Doctors of Chiropractic Robert Grzeskowiak and Lee Bagola. Their knack for treating athletic injuries is made easier by chiropractic tools such as the torque-release technique and COREscore reports that can scan the nervous system for potential problems.
To round out the holistic approach, the clinic offers services from Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Janis Li, massage therapists Tenille Hallman and Deanna Tucker, and therapist Lesley Raubvogel.
