C$29 for a Consultation and Three Spinal-Decompression Sessions (C$442.50 Value)
The first visit begins with a consultation, after which the patient reclines on a computer-controlled table for a 30- to 40-minute spinal-decompression treatment. Pads in the table raise and lower at specific points to relieve pressure on spinal discs, improve circulation to irritated areas, and alleviate pain. A typical treatment protocol consists of 28 sessions over one or two months.
Doctors united by the desire to blend progressive and traditional healing practices banded together to launch HealthMedica. The group's original endeavour met success, and today, the health-care centers pepper the Canadian landscape. Though it now has more than a dozen locations across six provinces, HealthMedica remains true to its roots—each clinic's medical team takes a modern approach to traditional healing.
Noninvasive services range from chiropractic care to laser weight loss and incorporate equipment such as Class 4 lasers and computerized spinal-decompression tables. The company also stocks cosmetic and nutritional products and produces literature, including expository articles and haikus, on topics related to integrated health care.
