Certified acupuncturists and holistic health devotees helm Heaven Scent’s alternative wellness and new-age practice. A 30-minute health consultation weaves though each client’s medical history and current lifestyle and allows clients to make a list of stressors they’d like to burn ceremonially. The quantum health analysis further measures wellness by evaluating signals from the body which alert the practitioner to the presence of disease. Cosmetic acupuncture treatment begins with a quick facial cleanse with Dermalogica products before the certified acupuncturist strategically places the needles to stimulate points on the face that can boost collagen, tighten skin, and be used as mini sundials to tell time in a pinch. The facial further aims to increases circulation to revive dull skin cells, creating a youthful, glowing complexion.
Heaven Scent is a blend of an alternative-medicine clinic, the Canadian Institute of Alternative Medicine, a full-service spa, and a new-age store providing supplies to both licensed holistic-health professionals and health-conscious customers. Its founder, Christine Richards, established Heaven Scent because she wanted to open a place where the local community could go for all its alternative-medicine needs, eliminating the need for people to fly to China every time they sneezed.
With the belief that pharmaceutical medicine isn’t the only path to vitality and fitness, Heaven Scent’s holistic health experts practice more than 50 alternative-medicine treatments that bolster the body without invasive procedures. Chinese acupuncture and zen stone massages facilitate the body’s natural healing processes, and nutritional counselling equips clients with the know-how to fuel their bio-motors with healthy foods instead of deep-fried candy canes. Powerful magnets, aromatics, detoxes, and reiki massages aid staff members in levelling out their clients’ internal systems.
