Craniosacral Therapy

Your Naturopathic Doctor is trained and has extensive years of experience in Craniosacral Therapy and Visceral Manipulation from the Upledger Institute. Craniosacral therapy is rooted in the understanding that the whole body is connected by fascia, and that this sheet of fascia throughout the body is intimately connected to the movement of the craniosacral system. The craniosacral system is a closed system, which produces a micro-hydraulic movement of the cranial bones, down the spinal canal to the sacrum. This rhythm oscillates approximately 12 cycles per minute. When this system is functioning properly, your body feels balanced, all muscles, tendons, bones, organs and connective tissue are receiving healthy support and signals throughout the body. When there are disruptions in the system caused by a wide variety of things (birth canal trauma, any bodily injury or trauma, electromagnetic interferences, piercings, surgical trauma, implants or scar tissue, dental fixtures, the stress of any kind, life…) your cranial system loses its rhythm and you get symptoms.

Symptoms can range from headaches, sinus pressure, neck, back and joint pains, dystonia anywhere in the body and maladaptive structural alignment. How you experience symptoms to an imbalanced craniosacral system is unique to you. Your only symptom, for example, could be not thinking clearly or feeling tired.

Craniosacral Therapy uses a very gentle touch and is non-invasive in its full-body approach to healing. Using our hands, we are able to feel the craniosacral rhythm and assess how it is reflecting throughout the rest of the body to determine what we may be able to do to improve its functioning. Because the whole body and structures are covered or connected to the fascia, we can assess the rhythm and function of any organ or structure in the body. With cranial treatment, we are able to release strains throughout the body and regain function and reduce pain. Craniosacral therapy is especially useful in calming the vaso-vagal nerve ( which keeps the body in stress mode) which brings the parasympathetic nervous system back into balance from chronic stress.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

How does your cranial system get out of balance?

Many factors like stress and tension, a fall, trauma, improper breathing, birth canal challenges, sleeping in a maladaptive position, repetitive movements, poor hydration, postural malalignment, surgery, dental work, braces, body piercings, sports injuries, electromagnetic or radio frequency stress of modern buildings, WiFi, cell phones, and living etc…. Many cranial stressors occur in our life time and they accumulate to cause dysfunction in our physical body. Getting your cranial system moving correctly can not only bring tremendous physical relief but emotional relief also.

From newborns to the elderly and for all sorts of pain and injury, craniosacral therapy can resolve some of the most chronic and acute health challenges with its gentle hands-on technique. Treatments are done fully clothed, lying on a treatment bed – Relaxed. We usually start at the feet and head and then go where the body directs its’ needs. Craniosacral treatments are very good for headaches, tinnitus, digestive disorders, heart function, respiratory issues, the pain of any type (injury, strains, childbirth misalignments, neck strains, stress, etc….).

Treatments usually last 60 minutes. Receiving Craniosacral therapy is very relaxing and positively pleasurable! It’s a good re-set for life stress. You feel the differences immediately as your body regains proper fascial and cranial rhythms.

Nutritional Counselling

Nutritional counselling is paramount to health and fundamental to functional naturopathic care. You have many opportunities throughout your day to impact your wellness, the question is with each meal or snack are you choosing to add to your health or take away from it? How you consciously choose to nutritionally support your body will ultimately determine your level of health or disease, depending on your genetics and other lifestyle choices.

Health is created in the kitchen! There is no amount of exercise that will un-do poor choices in food consumption. In today’s world where large corporate profits come before natural and sustainable food growing practices and manufacturing leaving us with sometimes overwhelming choices of “bad food”. Unless you are keenly aware of the benefits of organically grown, unprocessed foods you are likely suffering from the western condition of ‘overconsumption and malnourishment’.

“When the science of medicine reaches perfection, treatment will be given by foods, ailments, fragrant fruits, and vegetables…” Abdu’l-Baha

Many clients come in very frustrated with their “diet”. They have tried everything, and they still suffer from bloating, fatigue after meals, skin rashes, low energy and weight gain… I admit, dietary choices can be confusing and frustrating. It seems there is a diet for anything and everything out there. Question is, is it the correct diet for you?

Did you know that even healthy foods can make you unwell. For example if you have insulin issues, natural honey can set your metabolism into a tail spin. If you have autoimmune thyroid disease, eating soya milk in place of cows milk may be the wrong choice for you. That’s why it’s a good idea to start with a personalized 200+ food sensitivity panel to determine your specific foods that trigger your gut immune response, trigger inflammation and imbalance your microbiome which can all lead to leaky-gut (a condition which undermines your health daily).

Identifying certain dietary deficiencies, food sensitivities and poor food choices is critical in my opinion to building health.

We are all unique, one diet and lifestyle does not suite everyone. Your Naturopathic Doctor will suggest a lifestyle and personalized holistic nutrition program suited for your individual needs.

A therapeutic lifestyle program which is designed to help you live your life in a way that improves your health so you can show up being the best version of you. This involves making choices every day that will enhance your health and help prevent disease, enabling you to achieve a full, healthy life. Your Naturopathic Doctor can help you design a lifestyle suitable for you.

Diet, it’s the #1 Leading Cause of Disease, Stress is 2nd in Line.

Common diseases caused by diet include:

  • Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

    High blood pressure

  • Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Lifestyle Counseling

Your Naturopathic Doctor has extensive training in Healthy lifestyle habits. A large part of your visit will involve counseling on issues that are applicable to your needs like stress reduction, sleep hygiene, exercise, emotional well-being, and spiritual health. These areas of life help you achieve balance and happiness in every aspect of your life.

Your holistic practitioner is a resource for you in helping achieve your health and wellness goals. It is well known that our moods and emotional wellness serve as a regulator of our health and physiology. This may involve sessions looking at emotional blocks or subconscious maladaptive patterns that keep you stuck in reactive patterns that no longer serve you and your well-being. It is well proven that your thoughts become your beliefs and your beliefs run your life. Leading your life with conscious intention will change your biology!

A healthy foundation provides a balanced, low stress, fulfilling life, so your body can maintain optimal function every day. Discovering a lifestyle that enhances your wellbeing instead of taking away from it is a journey your Naturopathic Doctor will encourage you to explore.

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

According to Oriental medicine, the body is governed by energy and divided into meridians. When Energy is deficient, in excess or stuck, pain and illness happen. There are 12 major meridian channels, each corresponding to a specific organ system and flows in a specific direction and has divergent meridians. Acupuncture and herbal formulas work to balance the energy flow in these meridians and therefore the organs they correspond to.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Acupuncture sessions involve the insertion of very fine sterile needles into acupuncture points to activate & open energy channels enhancing your own healing power. Your body will balance energy as it’s intelligence guides the work to unblock energy and tonify various organs that need assistance. Treatments usually take 20-30 minutes and are gentle and relaxing.

Dr. Dawn has used traditional acupuncture for over 30 years and studied Qi energy therapies alongside this traditional approach. Each acupuncture session is enhanced with Qi Gong energy to assist the body in rebalancing itself to a healthy set point.

Acupuncture can be used for:

Homeopathic Medicine

Based on the principle that “like cures like”, homeopathic medicines have been used since the 1700’s. As discovered by Dr. Hahneman, a distinguished German physician, very diluted amounts of natural substances are used to stimulate the body to heal itself. Homeopathy helps to balance conditions such as depression, ADHD, hormone imbalances, neurological conditions, headaches, colds and sore throats any many more health issues.

Modern applications of Homeopathy are commonly practiced as Classical Homeopathy or Combination Drainage Homeopathy. Both are very effective in stimulating the body’s Vital Force to produce a cure and improve your condition.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Botanical Medicine

Botanical medicine involves the use of plants for their healing properties. For example echinacea and garlic are great for colds, ginger and peppermint for digestion and calendula for healing scrapes and cuts.

Herbal Medicine existed prior to Conventional (pharmaceutical) Medicine and still provides us with viable and safe alternatives to regain and maintain health and vitality in our modern world. Many plants and their active ingredients continue to inspire pharmaceutical applications in the conventional system. Nature provides exactly what we need to stay healthy. Your Naturopathic Doctor can help guide you in herbal selections appropriate for your situation. It is very important to remember that even though the plants are natural they are still medicine and can interfere with certain prescription drugs; caution is advised when combining prescription drugs and herbal medicines.

EAV Electrodermal Screening

EAV is an acronym for Electroacupuncture According to Voll (Dr. Voll the developer of the technology).

Your Naturopathic Doctor is academy trained and has over 25 years of experience in using the EAV machine to assess your body’s bioenergetic balance of your meridian system.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

The EAV device is utilized by testing bioelectric conductance on specific acupuncture points of the hand and foot. A probe is used to contact the corresponding acupuncture point to get a digital reading, it is painless and enjoyable. This device is also used to test various products for compatibility, and assess intolerances to various substances. EAV screening is an avenue that allows your doctor to monitor progress on your treatment plan and offer specific and individualized solutions to your health challenges. EAV screening also assists the doctor in assessing your internal primary stressors, level of biotoxicosis, causal chains, overall function, and balance of various organ systems. This evaluation tool can be one of many used in assessing your overall health and function. EAV provides a functional assessment of organs prior to their symptomatic dysfunction or the development of disease.

Eav can provide an accurate assessment of energy balance, health and function that would otherwise go undetected using conventional tests.

The EAV device is an electronic FDA approved device designed by Dr. Reinhold Voll is used to measures the skin’s electrical activity at designated acupuncture points (hand & foot). The Vistron Kindling device is widely used in the North Americas and in Europe for evaluation purposes and is compliant with the EN Guideline 93/42/EWG. It combines modern metrological prerequisites for reliable evaluation with various therapeutic applications to regulate the body’s energetic meridians.

Disclaimer

Note: This device is being used for investigative purposes only and is not being interpreted for a conventional diagnosis, however, specifications for this deice support its use for diagnosing, treating, mitigating and preventing diseases, disorders or abnormal physical states in human beings. EAV evaluation provided by your practitioner is not a conventional diagnosis as is commonly understood in the medical system. It is a valuable evaluation of your body’s state of function and health according to your bioenergetic meridian systems and assists your Naturopathic Doctor in assessing and evaluating your current state of health and imbalances that have an impact on your wellness.

EAV testing is done in conjunction with appropriate examination, medial history, conventional, functional and alternative tests to formulate an accurate evaluation of your health status. It is not a stand alone diagnostic tool.

The Vistron EAV device was a Class II Medical Device by health Canada for many years, however no longer is cleared by Health Canada in this regard since 2017. Manufacturer’s specifications are for measuring and evaluating various products, incompatibilities and electrical potential on acupuncture points associated with organ function.

Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)

Bio Electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) is a method of assessing your “body composition” – the measurement of fat in relation to lean & water body mass. It is an integral part of a health and nutrition assessment providing the practitioner with a baseline of health markers. Re-evaluating your BIA at set intervals can give the practitioner information critical to your treatment protocol and progress towards health.

Most new patients over 10 years old receive a baseline BIA test to help with your overall health assessment.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Who Can Benefit From BIA Testing?

BIA testing is very useful tool in the following situations:
Achieving optimal body composition, and tracking weight loss/gain and weight management. Tracking body composition during athletic training is very useful. BIA testing can track how the body is holding up to intense training by following things like phase angle, water distribution and also maintaining lean muscle tissues.

BIA can also track caloric needs during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

BIA is also useful in tracking health parameters during a detoxification program.

BIA is a useful marker of overall cellular health and metabolism.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Acupuncture is an effective way to remove fine lines and wrinkles from the face. It can reduce the signs of aging by revitalizing the skin and providing a more youthful look to the face. Cosmetic Acupuncture will also help to rejuvenate facial tissue by increasing circulation to the area, and stimulating collagen production, resulting in a healthy glowing complexion. It is based on the ancient principles of Chinese Medicine and has been used for over 3,000 years.

By inserting very fine, hair-thin, disposable needles into specific acupuncture points Qi energy is stimulated and skin becomes nourished, oxygenated and moisturized, from the inside out. When circulation is stimulated, the body produces more collagen and this, in turn, gives the skin more tightness and elasticity, helping to reduce and/or eliminate sagging skin, wrinkles, double chin, etc..

Cold Laser Collagen Stimulation

Theralase advanced anti-aging system is designed for facial rejuvenation. This non-invasive system erases years of lines and wrinkles without surgery or painful recuperation time. By combining laser/acupuncture facial points and both near infrared and visible red light, treatments optimize skin health and appearance through the production of collagen and elastin, both essential to healthier more youthful skin.

Light therapy has been shown to improve vascularity (circulation) by increasing the formation of new capillaries. New capillaries speed up the healing process by supplying additional oxygen and nutrients needed for healing and stimulate the production of collagen. One of the secondary mechanisms of light therapy is increased collagen synthesis. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body and is the essential protein used to repair and replace damaged tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together, along with elastin, thus forming a high degree of elasticity. Increasing both collagen and elastin production will help you look years younger!

Breast Thermography Scans

Non-Invasive Breast Thermography

Our clinic is proud to offer Breast and full-body Thermography services provided by Thermography London - Pat’s Way.

Breast Thermography uses no painful breast compression, no radiation and is completely non-invasive and benign to human tissue. Unlike conventional Mammography which traumatizes and radiates tissue with gamma radiation and imaging. Ask yourself, why does the medical system use screening techniques that actually cause trauma, inflammation and radiation damage to your DNA to screen for cancer, when these factors contribute to cancer???

Breast Thermography measures the infrared heat signature which is constantly radiating from the surface of human bodies. There is a process called thermoregulation which is the bodies way of breathing that cools or heats us, keeping the right amount of circulation and blood flow to the skin. This is automatic and controlled by the nervous system without thinking about it. It’s this heat signature that Thermography uses to get a functional assessment of body tissues - like the breast.

Thermography is an ideal tool for risk assessment not only for women of all ages. It not a stand alone tool in the screening and diagnosis of breast cancer, it’s an adjunctive assessment. It played a tremendous role as an early risk indicator or as a monitor of treatment.

Studies show:

  • Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

    An abnormal infrared image is the single-most important marker of high risk for developing breast disease

  • Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

    A persistent abnormal thermogram carries with it a 22 times higher risk of future breast disease

  • Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

    When thermography is used as a multimodal approach, 95% of early-stage cancers will be detected

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Brest Thermography is also a functional tool useful in assessing early changes associated with cancer growth. The procedure is based on the principle that chemical and early blood vessel activity is precancerous tissue and surrounding area is always higher than in normal tissue. This is due to the high metabolic activity needed for cancer cells to maintain growth and the recruitment of blood vessels (angiogenesis) to provide nutrition to cancer growing tumors.

This process results in an increased regional surface temperature of the skin associated with cancer. This gives the clinician an alert that something is wrong well before a cancerous lump or tutor can be detected on conventional tests.

Changes in tumor angiogenesis can be evaluated and other procedures can be offered to aid in the earliest possible diagnosis. So you can be proactive in changing your health and healing easier. Thermography is not a “wait and see” approach to your breast health. It is a early functional detection and proactive approach to breast health. Breast thermography has an average sensitivity and specificity of 90%.

When a thermography result is positive, a closer look at a patients diet, lifestyle is in order. Clinical blood work ultrasound and other testing can help with the evaluation.

I recommend thermographic Scanning early in a women’s reproductive life and monitoring on an individual basis as needed. The procedure is both comfortable and safe using no radiation or compression!

Beyond the Kegel: Pelvic Floor Therapy

If you’ve tried Kegel's on your own and your incontinence isn’t getting better, it’s because you weren’t taught correctly! Dr. Dawn is trained to help women with Pelvic floor dysfunction. She incorporates dynamic pelvic floor assessments and exercises suited to your specific needs. She also incorporates acupuncture and /or Matrix repatterning to remove pelvic strains that are causing urinary issues. You’ve come to the right place to have your women parts happy again.

Pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms

1.urinary leakage, such as the urge to urinate or painful urination.
2.constipation or leaky bowels.
3.lower back pain.
4.pain in the pelvic region, genitals, or rectum.
5.discomfort during sexual intercourse for women.
6.pressure in the pelvic region or rectum.
7.muscle spasms in the pelvis.

Picture1

Fortunately, pelvic floor dysfunction can be treated relatively easily in many cases. It’s a shame that women are not taught how to maintain strong pelvic muscles at an early age, during and after pregnancy or during menopause or as they age. Many women try keels on their own and end up with pelvic tension syndrome if now properly executed. Ouch.

Common causes of a weakened pelvic floor include pregnancy, childbirth, prostate cancer treatment in males, obesity, poor core muscle strength, inactivity and the associated straining of chronic constipation. Pelvic floor exercises are designed to improve your muscle tone. Doing the correct exercises may prevent the need for corrective surgery.

The most important part of treatment is to not give up. Forgetting to do your exercises your therapist recommends every day will cause your symptoms to plateau, continue and possibly get worse. Also, skipping pelvic floor therapy appointments can lead to relapse. Appointments are scheduled every two weeks until progress is well on it’s way. This is important since retraining the muscles and evaluating or trouble shooting issues must be done in a timely fashion to get the results you want and need.

Call to set up your evaluation.

Dr. Dawn, Naturopathic Doctor, HBSc.

InLight Therapy

InLight Wellness LED light therapy systems are photo-modulated devices that provide low-level light therapy (LLLT), with multiple wavelengths emitted simultaneously. This polychromatic light therapy (PLT) is composed of infrared, visible red and blue LED lights providing gentle but powerful non-coherent light delivered to your cells. These devices use a carefully timed proprietary sequence of settings, known as pulses, to create an environment in which change may occur more rapidly, and consistently than conventional lasers. With the direction of your clinician, proper placement, frequency and application of the InLight pad system can assist your healing and regeneration at the speed of light. Standard settings are for pain & inflammation, neuropathy & re-balancing the nervous system for stress.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre

Uses For Light Therapy:

Any type of pain plus more!

Watch a couple of short educational video on the effects of Light Therapy:

For more detailed understanding of the Benefits of Red, Blue and Infrared lights see PDF:

LIGHT THERAPY HAS BEEN SHOWN TO:

Increase circulation

Red, blue and infrared light enters through the skin and stimulates a photoreceptor in your blood called hemoglobin. When this is stimulated, the hemoglobin releases nitrogen oxide a natural substance that causes vasodilation. When the blood vessels are expanded, blood, oxygen, and nutrients can penetrate into areas that were previously compromised. red light also promotes angiogenesis, the building of new blood vessels. With this new improved circulation, the body can deliver nutrients and remove toxins for optimal healing.

Stimulate the production of collagen

Blue light and infrared light are responsible for stimulation of fibroblasts to produce collagen just under the surface of the skin. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. Collagen is the essential protein used to repair damaged tissue and to replace old tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity. By increasing collagen production less scar tissue is formed at the damaged site and aged skin rejuvenates.

Stimulate the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)

ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. Consider ATP your cellular energy currency. Increases in ATP allow cells to accept nutrients faster and get rid of waste products faster by increasing the energy level in the cell. Red and infrared light specifically increases the levels of ATP in each cell it touches.

Increase lymphatic system activity

Edema, which is the swelling of the tissues due to extracellular fluid accumulation. The first is a liquid part, which can be evacuated by the blood system, and the second is comprised of the proteins that have to be evacuated by the lymphatic system. All three lights (red, blue and infrared) increase lymphatic stimulation and flow. This means that both parts of edema (liquid and protein) can be evacuated at a much faster rate to relieve swelling.

Reduce the excitability of nervous tissue

The photons of light enter the body as negative ions. This calls upon the body to send positive ions, like calcium and potassium among others, to go to the area being treated. These natural ions in the body assist in firing the nerves, thereby relieving pain. Red light is responsible for increasing nerve function and nerve cell action potential which assists healing of neuropathy.

Increase phagocytosis

Red and infrared light stimulate phagocytosis which is the process of scavenging for an ingesting dead or degenerated cells by white blood cells for the purpose of clean up. This is an important part of the infection fighting process. Destruction of the infection and clean up must occur before the healing process can take place.

Stimulate tissue granulation and connective tissue projections

Red, blue, and infrared lights stimulate part of the healing process of wounds, ulcers or inflamed tissues by stimulating granulation.

Stimulate acetylcholine release

Red light helps increase the relaxation response (parasympathetic) via the release of Acetylcholine. Acetylcholine causes cardiac inhibition, vasodilation, cognitive, gastrointestinal peristalsis and other parasympathetic effects.

Disclaimer

The InLight Medical products have been cleared by the FDA as being safe and effective, used to reduce pain and increase circulation. Light emitted from InLight Medical devices are within visible to infrared spectrum and consist of non-ionizing radiation, which is safe for use. InLight Therapy does not substitute any ongoing therapy, and does not substitute for medical care by your physician.

Helps with the following conditions and/or recovery time

Theralase – Cold Laser Therapy

Intro to the TLC-1000 Cold Laser
The Theralase Super Pulsed Laser system can penetrate up to 4″ into tissue, to promote cellular regeneration at the source of the injury and is the only laser on the market known to activate all three Cellular Pathways. Theralase has been manufacturing super pulsed laser technology for 17 years, distributing this technology in Canada, the United States and Internationally.

Naturopathic Health and Wellness Centre
Treatable Conditions

Low back, Neck, Hip, Heel and Knee Pain. Sprains and Strains, Arthritis, Sports Injuries, Wound Healing and many more.

Pain Management

Pain is believed to originate from an ionic differentiation of potassium (K+) and sodium (Na+) ions across a cellular membrane. Theralase 905 nm super-pulsed laser technology increases cellular membrane permeability and causes a reabsorption of sodium and expulsion of potassium molecules, removing the gradient and thus the pain signal at source. The result is a reduction in pain.

Arthritis

No clinically tested modality is proven to be more effective for arthritis. While arthritis is a chronic condition without a cure, Theralase therapeutic laser treatments can provide substantial relief from symptoms by reducing inflammation of the joints, eliminating pain, increasing range of motion of the joints and improving immune cell production and efficiency.

Wound Healing

Laser treatments accelerate each of the three phases associated with the natural healing of wounds: inflammation, proliferation and remodeling. The result is a reduction in pain, inflammation reduction, increased stimulation of connective tissue (granulation tissue) and increased capillary production (angiogenesis) leading to improved blood flow during proliferation.

Inflammation

Despite the pain associated with this stage, the inflammatory phase is necessary for tissue repair. First, in the area of the wound, there appear platelets and white blood cells to coagulate the blood and stop blood loss. Next, an increased number of macrophages clean the area and remove dead tissue by engulfing and destroying foreign matter and damaged cells.

Anti-Aging

Theralase advanced anti-aging system is designed for facial rejuvenation and the treatment of various dermatological conditions. This non-invasive system erases years of lines and wrinkles without surgery or painful recuperation time. By combining laser/acupuncture facial points and both near infrared and visible red light, treatments optimize skin health and appearance through the production of collagen and elastin, both essential to healthier more youthful skin.

How Does It Work?

Light therapy has been shown to improve vascularity (circulation) by increasing the formation of new capillaries. New capillaries speed up the healing process by supplying additional oxygen and nutrients needed for healing and stimulate the production of collagen. One of the secondary mechanisms of light therapy is increased collagen synthesis. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body and is the essential protein used to repair and replace damaged tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together, along with elastin, thus forming a high degree of elasticity. Increasing both collagen and elastin production will decrease scar tissue at the injured site.
