How It Works

Nutrient intravenous therapy refers to the use of vitamins, minerals, and/or botanicals delivered directly into the blood stream. This is a safe and effective way to achieve therapeutic levels of nutrients.

Nutrient IV Therapy

When you take a supplement orally, you only absorb a percentage of the nutrients contained within the capsule. Capsules and tablets are riddled with preservatives and binders that prevent your body from breaking them down completely, thus decreasing the quantity of nutrient available to be absorbed. By delivering the nutrients directly in to your blood stream, and bypassing the digestive tract, you are able to absorb 100% the nutrients.

We have been trained and licensed to perform IV therapy as well as access PICC lines and ports by the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (regulators of all NDs in Ontario).

How It Works

A reflexology session is booked for either 30 minutes or 60 minutes. Reflexology can be used to restore and maintain the body’s natural balance and facilitate healing and is one of the safest and least invasive alternative therapeutic practices available.

Reflexology is based on the theory that there are thousands of nerve endings located on the hands and feet energetically linked to reflex points in specific organs and body parts. By massaging or pressing on these points on the feet and hands, one can achieve health benefits in the associated area of the body. 

Reflexology

Benefits include reduced stress, stimulated nerve function, deep relaxation, increased energy, toxin elimination and enhanced circulation.

Reflexology and Cancer Patients

When cancer patients face stress, fatigue, or nausea, they may turn to integrative therapies such as reflexology to help ease symptoms. Although each patient responds individually, reflexology can support relaxation and comfort during cancer treatment and offers an alternative to a traditional massage.

How It Works

Hypnosis is a state of consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness allowing for an enhanced capacity to respond to positive suggestion.

While many people cannot accept, or respond to an up-front and direct suggestion, under hypnosis, suggestions are made through the subconscious mind where thoughts often germinate and take root as important behavioral or psychological changes.

Hypnosis and Self Hypnosis

Contrary to popular belief, people under hypnosis are not asleep and remain in total control and would never do anything they would normally find objectionable.  Under hypnosis, an individual can hear and is aware of everything that is taking place and cannot be manipulated in any way.  Typically, memories of everything that occurred will remain after coming out of hypnosis.

Hypnosis is generally a very pleasant experience. Most people report feelings of happiness, calm, and relaxation as well as a greater clarity.  It is the responsibility of the hypnotist to ensure the patient is comfortable during and after the session.

Hypnosis and
Cancer Patients

Hypnosis has been specifically employed in the care of cancer patients to reduce symptoms associated with radiation and chemotherapy.  The practice of self-hypnosis helps patients achieve a relaxed and therapeutic hypnotic state.

Reiki Healing

How It Works

A Reiki session is booked for one hour. The client remains fully clothed throughout and can expect to experience a deep sense of relaxation and peace of mind. 

During a Reiki session, the Ki (Chi) universal life force is activated through the practitioner’s hands to the client.  Reiki healing energy removes obstructions to your natural state of health by releasing energetic blockages in the body’s meridians and restoring energy to depleted areas allowing your body to return to balance.

Reiki

While there is no body manipulation, the practitioner follows a sequence of hand positions on the head, torso, hips, knees, and feet.  The hand placements bring rejuvenating energy to all the endocrine glands and organs that control overall function and well-being.

Reiki brings wonderful peace and relaxation. It goes where your need is greatest, supporting awareness, detoxification and balance. Regular, ongoing Reiki sessions are best to support self-healing.

Reiki and Cancer Patients

Working directly with Cancer patients, studies have shown evidence that in addition to promoting relaxation among patients, Reiki can enhance the effectiveness of traditional treatment protocols while reducing anxiety/depression, reducing pain, improving sleep, and improving quality of life.

How It Works

Although diseases themselves cannot actually be seen under a microscope, live blood analysis allows for an observation of irregular patterns in the blood.  These irregularities can allow disease imbalances to occur over time. Through this analysis, modifications can be made to correct these irregularities before disease can develop.

Live Blood Cell Microscopy

The live blood thus acts as an educational “feedback mechanism”, motivating people to improve their diet, perhaps with the addition of nutritional supplements. Positive changes in the structure of the blood cells can be viewed over time, usually a period of months, as improved nutrition impacts the blood.  

Live blood work involves magnifying a single living drop of blood, taken from the fingertip and immediately placed onto a slide for analysis.  With the aid of a video camera and monitor, the client will see their test results immediately on the screen as the practitioner is completing the analysis.

How It Works

Trying to decide which diet is right for you can be overwhelming. A simple google search can lead to many drastically different recommendations, all claiming to be the best. The truth is, there is no diet that fits all. A Certified Nutritional Practitioner educated in Holistic Nutrition can guide you towards the best diet for you and your body.

Holistic Nutrition

Holistic Nutrition looks at each client as the unique individual that they are. During your first consultation, our Certified Nutritional Practitioner will take a comprehensive look at your health history, diet, lifestyle, mindset, sleep habits and so much more in order to develop a full picture. Our Nutritionist’s goal is to get to the root cause of what you are feeling in order to develop a plan that addresses your symptoms. The plan is intended to educate and empower you to take control of your own health and wellness journey.

The Barrel Effect

Recommendations May Include

  • Specific foods or nutrients to include in your daily menu

  • Foods to avoid or eliminate in your diet

  • Supplementation

  • Movement

  • Mindfulness

  • Health and beauty product swaps to avoid harmful toxins

A helpful analogy when thinking about our health is the concept of a barrel. Consider that when you are born your barrel is relatively empty, you have a clean slate, but as you go through life your barrel begins to fill due to dietary choices, stressors, illnesses, pollution, electromagnetic fields, environmental toxins etc. It is when your barrel begins to overflow that you experience uncomfortable symptoms. A Holistic Nutritionist can help you to address what is causing your barrel to overflow and recommend small, sustainable steps to lighten the load of your barrel.

How It Works

To help you understand my therapeutic approach please read the information that I have highlighted below. Please also consider scheduling a free, 15-minute initial consultation, to help you determine if my approach is the best fit for you.

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy services are defined as “any form of treatment for psycho social or emotional difficulties, behavioural maladaptations and/or other problems that are assumed to be of an emotional nature, in which a College member establishes a professional relationship with a client for the purposes of promoting positive personal growth and development.” (Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) focuses on the here-and-now—on the problems that come up in day-to-day life. CBT helps people to examine how they make sense of what is happening around them and how these perceptions affect the way they feel. (The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, CAMH)

Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).

Dialectical means “the existence of opposites.” In DBT, people are taught two seemingly opposite strategies: acceptance (i.e., that their experiences and behaviours are valid), and change (i.e., that they have to make positive changes to manage emotions and move forward). (CAMH)

What You
Can Expect

Mindfulness is about being aware and present in the moment, with acceptance and without judgement. It is a practice that involves paying attention to your surroundings, and noticing or observing your emotions, thoughts and how your body feels. (CAMH)

Trauma is the lasting emotional response that often results from living through a distressing event. Experiencing a traumatic event can harm a person’s sense of safety, sense of self, and ability to regulate emotions and navigate relationships. Long after the traumatic event occurs, people with trauma can often feel shame, helplessness, powerlessness and intense fear. A trauma informed response understands the symptoms of trauma to be coping strategies that have developed in reaction to a traumatic experience. (CAMH)

Grief is a normal and natural process after a loss. The loss may be a person, pet, job, relationship, ability, etc. Bereavement is grief associated with the loss of a loved one or a person we were/are connected to. Grief Therapy can help support you through this very painful process.

End-of-life (EOL) planning discussions are valuable prior to completing your power of attorney and/or will and/or when living with a life threatening illness. EOL planning often includes discussions about quality of life, core values, purpose, death, illness, changing independence, medical interventions, substitute decision makers, preferred place of death, medically assisted death, etc.

 
 
Infrared Sauna.jpg

How It Works

Traditional saunas use wood stoves or heaters which heat the air, mainly via convection, to 85 degrees. Far infrared saunas, however, heat the air to approximately 55 degrees, which makes the experience more relaxing. Infrared heaters use a wavelength around 10 micrometers that is able to penetrate tissues more deeply than warm air, up to 3-5cm.

Infrared Sauna

Occupants are able to develop a more vigorous sweat at a lower temperature than traditional saunas. Research show that FIRS may help to reduce blood sugar, reduce blood pressure, improve cardiovascular health, aid in killing chronic infections, and reducing inflammation associated with arthritis.
