Crown Health Centre
East meets West at Crown Health Centre, where licensed specialists use ancient Chinese medicine and modern Western techniques to relieve all kinds of ailments. Headaches, chronic pain, and digestive issues disappear under the hands of a licensed acupuncturist, who arranges hair-thin needles along specific bodily points in an effort to balance energies. Reflexology spurs the body’s healing powers through specialized foot massage, while cupping creates deep, localized pressure that draws out toxins and clears the blood. On the Western end of the spectrum, Crown Health’s practitioners call upon podiatry to diagnose and treat foot and ankle problems, physiotherapy and chiropractics to maintain spinal and muscular-skeletal function, and use massage therapy to soothe overflexed muscles and injury-related pain.
