Our Services

Naturopathic Services, IV and Injection Therapy

A careful analysis of blood, urine and genetic testing are used in conjunction with hormones, supplements, IVs, injections and pharmaceuticals to optimize health and wellness. IV Therapy is a proven treatment for many conditions including anxiety, depression, Crohn’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, in addition to helping with athletic performance and detoxification. Vitamin injections, including Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D, can also be used to correct common deficiencies.

Chiropractic Care, A.R.T. (Active Release Therapy) and Acupuncture

Complete Chiropractic Care not only addresses injuries, but also promotes expedited recovery from injury and serves as a preventative modality. The assessment of your body as a whole enables us to ensure functional and structural joint issues are addressed before leading to joint deterioration and pain. We routinely use A.R.T. and acupuncture modalities synergistically to reinforce and stabilize chiropractic therapies.

Male & Female Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT)

Hormone levels in both men and women diminish with age. This can lead to poor health outcomes, including premature aging and sexual dysfunction. Testosterone replacement in men is a beneficial treatment particularly during the andropause years. It can improve libido, energy, ability to focus, mood and sexual function. In women, the levels of estrogen, progesterone and DHEA are optimized for the treatment of infertility. The replacement of these hormones can also help relieve night sweats, hot flashes, manage weight gain, insomnia and many other peri- and menopausal symptoms.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy involves harvesting the patients’ own plasma-enriched growth factors from blood, and re-injecting them into the body. This is done by drawing blood, spinning it in a centrifuge, and separating the platelet-rich-plasma from the rest of the blood. We routinely use PRP under ultrasound guidance to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries as it accelerates the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. PRP can also be used to treat sexual dysfunction in both men and women, with the P-Shot or O-Shot. Finally, it can be used cosmetically for facial treatments (Vampire Facial) and hair rejuvenation.

Priapus Shot® (P-Shot®)

The P-shot® is a new, noninvasive treatment that aims to alleviate male sexual dysfunction by re-injecting plasma-enriched growth factors into specific areas of the penis. The P-shot® ostensibly stimulates blood flow and rejuvenates tissue, leading to increased girth of the penis. It treats erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation by naturally rehabilitating penile tissue, and is safe with most medications and medical conditions. It can also be used to correct painful complications of Peyronie’s Disease.

The O-Shot® (Orgasm Shot®)

The O-Shot® (Orgasm Shot®) is a new, noninvasive treatment that aims to alleviate female sexual dysfunction by injecting PRP directly into the vaginal area. The growth factors naturally rejuvenate the vagina and clitoris, alleviating sexual dysfunction, urinary stress incontinence, Lichen sclerosus and Lichen planus. The O-shot® increases libido and helps with achieving orgasm. It improves vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, and chronic pain from episiotomy scars. It also helps with interstitial cystitis, postpartum fecal incontinence and chronic pain from surgical mesh.

Vampire Facial

The “vampire” or “PRP facial” is a trendy skin care treatment that involves injecting PRP directly into the face to promote skin cell renewal by promoting the body’s own natural ability to heal. The platelet-rich-plasma from blood stimulate collagen production in the face. This increases the integrity of the base layer of the skin, and helps tighten, smooth and improve skin tone by repairing wrinkles, scars and pigmentation.

Hair Rejuvenation PRP

Hair Loss PRP is a treatment used to naturally accelerate and help restore hair growth. It is typically used when hair loss results from hormonally related baldness (androgenic alopecia) in both men and women. PRP in the scalp stimulates the hair follicles that became atrophic as a result of hormonal or vitamin deficiency. PRP is therefore most successful in the early stages of hair loss and in small areas of alopecia areata.

Registered Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is an effective and natural choice for managing injuries, providing relaxation, and moving the body toward wellness.

Therapeutically, massage has been found to positively impact circulation and psychological well being, while reducing tension in the body. Massage Therapy can be credited with reducing the effects of stress, realigning joints and muscles as well as improving recovery time after physical activity.

Massage therapy is also proven in resolving many chronic conditions, such as headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, low back pain, neck injuries and more. Please feel free to talk to one of our therapists about how we can help.

Laser Skin Care

With the use of state-of-the-art laser technologies we offer treatments to correct a variety of skin conditions resulting from age, sun damage, trauma and inflammatory conditions (such as acne). Skin aging is a part of a natural complex human process. It is influenced by genetics, cellular metabolism, hormonal metabolic processes, chronic sun exposure, pollution, ionizing radiation and chemicals toxins. These factors lead to progressive changes in each skin layer resulting in thin, atrophic, finely wrinkled dry aged skin, age spots, discoloration, deep wrinkles, laxity, and skin dullness.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

It is a “non-wounding” laser that addresses pigmentation, discoloration (red and brown), sun damage, uneven skin texture, tone, flushing and rosacea. IPL also treats facial veins and vascular changes such as broken capillaries (telangiectases). This photo-rejuvenation is a full facial treatment which helps skin to take on a smoother and more even appearance. IPL is safe for the first 4 of the 6 different skin types. These include I (very fair, always burns, cannot tan) to IV (olive, rarely burns, always tans). This treatment has downtime that is less than 24 hours.

Fractional CO2 (Non-surgical Face Lift)

CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a proven way to help reduce wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, stretch marks and other blemishes. It can also tighten skin, balance skin texture and tone. CO2 lasers are generally ablative or “wound generating” lasers used to treat deeper skin flaws by removing a thin layer of skin while stimulating collagen production. Fractional lasers break up the laser energy into thousands of tiny beams to treat only a fraction of the skin in the area. This reduces downtime, however a 5-day recovery is necessary. Fractional CO2 laser is safe for the first 4 of the 6 skin types: I (very fair, always burns, cannot tan) to IV (olive, rarely burns, always tans). This is the gold standard laser therapy for skin resurfacing. Results can last for up to 4 years.

SpectraTM Carbon Laser Peel (Hollywood Facial)

SpectraTM is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment. It is gentle and also safe for most skin types and produces results with little to no downtime. The SpectraTM Peel evens skin tone, reduces pigmentation, diminishes enlarged pores, reduces acne, improves textural irregularities and stimulates collagen production. The SpectraTM Laser treatment is also FDA approved to treat melasma.

SpectraTM Q-switched Yag Laser (Tattoo Removal)

The Q-switched laser is state of the art for tattoo removal and the treatment of pigmented lesions such as freckles, nevi and seborrheic keratosis. Several passes of the laser causes vaporization of the carbon located inside the ink of the tattoo as well as an extremely superficial layer of the skin. This is the gold standard for tattoo removal and it is safe for all skin types: I (very fair, always burns, cannot tan) to VI (black, never burns, always tans).

PlexR® (Non-surgical Eye Lift)

PlexR® is the newest plasma technology in Canada. This device allows for a non-invasive bloodless non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime that treats small problem areas. We use it commonly to treat wrinkles in front of the ear and upper lip smokers lines, seborrheic warts, lower/upper eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) and bellybutton lifts. It can also be used to decrease the size of labia (labioplasty), as well as treat keloid scars, stretch marks and minimize surgical and traumatic skin scars. PlexR® has a 5-7 day downtime and achieves the closest cosmetic result of blepharoplasty without surgical means.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is the most popular cosmetic procedure for both men and women alike and is now safe, fast, and effective for tanned and dark skin types. Laser hair removal targets the entire hair structure, from the hair shaft down to the follicle. Results are comfortably achieved with the 1064 Nd Yag laser for skin types 4-6 and with the Alexandrite laser for skin types 1-3. Both are available in the clinic and there is no downtime associated with this treatment.

Scarlet RF Microneedling

Scarlet RF is a Health Canada-approved short-pulse radiofrequency (RF) with microneedling that is a safe and effective anti-aging therapy. The Scarlet delivers RF energy beneath the superficial layer of skin to improve firmness and decrease sagging by stimulating collagen production. It is an excellent option in patients of all ages for treating active acne and acne scars, improving rosacea, lifting, firming, and tightening skin, shrinking pores, reducing the appearance of spider veins, treating sun-damaged skin, softening fine lines and reducing hyperpigmentation. The Scarlet RF is safe for all skin colours/types and has little to no downtime.

Botox® and Dysport®

Botox® and Dysport® are Health Canada-approved neurotoxins used to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, lines between the eyebrows and forehead lines in adults. A combination of factors can cause facial lines including reduction of collagen and skin damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of persistent facial lines. Botox® and Dysport® work beneath the skin surface and temporarily reduce the underlying muscle activity that causes skin wrinkling, making them appear visibly smoother. Effects may begin within 24 to 48 hours, however maximum effect occurs in 2 weeks and lasts up to 3-6 months.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Facial Fillers

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in skin. Dermal fillers are temporary gel-like substances made of HA that are injected beneath the skin surface, typically in the lower half of the face. These are used to improve facial symmetry and smooth/soften lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds, vertical lip lines and marionette lines). They also enhance facial contours by restoring lost volume of sunken cheeks and can be used for plumping and enhancing thinning lips. Effects are immediately visible and can lasts from 6 months to 6 years.

Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+)

NAD+ is an essential molecule found in every cell of the body. It is a coenzyme of Vitamin B3 (niacin) that is responsible for over 5,000 different biochemical reactions throughout the body. NAD+ participates in more reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule. NAD+ IV therapy is an emerging vitamin therapy that is all-natural and has shown outstanding results. IV NAD+ therapy has shown greatest benefit when used for the treatment of addiction, age-related diseases, concussion/chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and chronic fatigue. The IV therapy can last from 3 to 15 days.

Addiction Recovery (for Opioid Dependence, Suboxone Detox, Benzodiazephine Detox, Alcohol Detox and Methadone Detox)

IV NAD+ increases the overall success of recovery from addictions in the long term. Addiction is a brain disease with underlying root causes that have not been effectively treated since relapse rates are 50-90%. To date, the most effective treatment for addictions is psychotherapy, which rewires the brain. NAD+ differs from typical treatment options because it is natural, restorative, provides energy, and helps balance and protect the body and brain. The most profound effect of adding IV NAD+ to an addiction protocol is it’s ability to reduce cravings, prevent depression, and boost energy levels. This is important since these are closely associated with detoxification from alcohol/benzodiazepines and opiate withdrawal. IV NAD+ therapy has been observed clinically to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings in 90 percent of patients after as few as 10-15 consecutive treatments.

Age-Related Diseases

IV NAD+ therapy is the best natural brain-restoring therapy that enhances cognitive performance. It increases neuronal function, protects cells against damage, toxicity and death, and promotes mitochondrial biogenesis. The importance of this is clear in the aging brain that suffers cognitive decline. With age, neurodegeneration occurs where there is loss of structure and function of the neurons. NAD+ is neuroprotective thereby improving concentration, memory, mental clarity, mood, balance, vision and hearing. This essentially results from improvements in DNA methylation, lengthening of telomeres and reduction in inflammatory processes. The improvement in cognitive function can be attributed to reduction in arterial blood vessel stiffness. There is also associated improvement in skin elasticity and lung function, and improvement in overall cholesterol levels and hormone levels. This can be achieved in 10-15 consecutive treatments.

Concussion and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)

IV NAD+ shows particular promise in patients with mild traumatic brain injuries, and post-concussive syndromes. When left untreated these can develop into Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), which is a progressive degenerative disease that resembles neurodegeneration of the aging brain. This can manifest as impaired concentration as well as short-term memory loss. More commonly, however, patients with these injuries will experience severe depression, substance abuse, emotional instability, aggressiveness, poor impulse control, irritability and possibly early dementia. IV NAD+ therapy can be used to potentially mitigate the progression of permanent brain damage after a traumatic injury.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

Those who suffer from chronic fatigue battle with debilitating symptoms on a daily basis. The exact etiology of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is unclear. Conventional treatments consist of a combination of medications including antidepressants, sleep aids and analgesics. IV NAD+ therapy addresses the core issue by supplying the body with the energy it needs for healing at a cellular level. NAD+ increases the production of ATP, which is the currency that cells use for energy. Patients note a clinical improvement in symptoms such as fatigue/malaise, neurocognitive difficulties, sleep disturbances, headaches, muscle weakness, joint pain and muscle pain. This occurs after as few as 7 consecutive treatments, and studies have shown even further significant improvements with the addition of co-enzyme Q10.
