Chiropractors have 5 years of university education, which focuses on understanding the function of the spine and nervous system.

The World Health Organisation defines chiropractic as "A health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and these effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation with a particular focus on subluxations."

Our philosophy is based on the following common sense principles. They serve as our guide as we assess your health and make specific care recommendations:

Being healthy is your normal state
Stress (both physical and emotional) can overload your body and nervous system
Spinal dysfunction is usually the result of a "stressed" body resulting in poor function and pain
Adjustments may help reduce spinal dysfunction

Remedial massage treats many musculoskeletal dysfunctions, while assessing and treating postural imbalances, relaxing muscle and lengthening connective tissue. Massage may also reduce chronic pain and assist in stress management.

The aim of a treatment is to assist with the body's innate ability to restore itself and speed up the body's own repair mechanisms to achieve homeostasis. The process of a remedial massage removes blockages and assists elimination of toxins from within the body. It improves recovery time after injury and encourages complete healing.

Naturopathic medicine is a science-based tradition that promotes wellness by identifying the unique aspects of each patient and then employing non-toxic natural therapies to restore his or her physiological, psychological, and structural balance.

Naturopathic physicians are often successful at treating chronic conditions that don't respond to conventional medicine. This includes, but is not limited to: fatigue, pain, sleep disturbance, and digestive disorders. They are able to respond to the individual needs of patients and develop a treatment plan that includes nutritional supplements, botanical medicine, and diet therapy.

Naturopathic physicians understand the art of healing, which is more than dispensing an herbal remedy or nutritional supplement. To understand the context of a patient's illness, the physician must take the time to listen to the patient's story. Effective naturopathic treatment requires patience and good communication. Most patients know what is wrong and what needs to be done, but they don't know how to translate this into an action plan. The naturopathic physician can translate the patient's story and assign priorities among the several options that may emerge. They also take time to answer the patient's questions.
