Weight management

Weight management is multi-factorial and sometimes is not as easy as calories in and calories out. 

Our Naturopathic Doctors aim for a thorough up-to-date assessment to identify any factors that are impeding optimal health!  Are you wondering what kind of nutritional plan will work for YOU? Do you have questions about intermittent fasting or trendy diets that need evidence-based answers as they relate to your health concerns and goals? Our NDs are here for you in a relaxed and comfortable setting so you get all your questions answered!

What is good for one person may not be good for another and this is why personalized medicine is so effective when it comes to weight management.  Nutrition, sleep, stress, hormones and genetics will all be discussed in the initial appointment. DUTCH hormone testing, GI stool testing, or nutritional genetic testing may be recommended to further assess the individual in order to come up with a comprehensive weight loss plan.

Cupping

Cupping is a treatment which uses cups to create suction on the skin to promote healing & detoxification. 

When suction or vacuum is created on the skin, it pulls stagnated blood and lymph to the surface and stimulates healing in the local area  to improve circulation, release muscle tension, and promote lymphatic drainage.  

This therapy is wonderful to help relieve pain.  Many athletes come on a regular basis post-training session to promote healing.

Cupping can be used in acute or chronic conditions. This therapy mimics massage movements ranging from deep tissue and myofascial release to light pumping for lymphatic drainage. 

Cupping can be used to treat conditions such as fibromyalgia, edema, inflammation, joint pain, muscle tension, scar tissue, cellulite and more.  

Cupping is very safe and relaxing with benefits felt in the first treatment.  Bruising may occur in some individuals but is generally painless.

For a cupping session, please book a 30 minute Naturopathic visit with either Dr. Carol or Dr. Courtney.
