Mind and Body Wellness
An integrative, holistic approach for addressing your overall health How we feel—physically, emotionally and mentally—is influenced by a multitude of factors that go far beyond diet, exercise, age and heredity. Our past experiences, memories, reactions to stress, our image of ourselves, how our bodies react to stimuli or process nutrients—all contribute to our overall health and happiness.
During your initial appointment, you will have as much time as you need to discuss your physical, mental and emotional issues.
You are more than your illness or condition
Unfortunately, most health practitioners specialize in only a single aspect of health, treating symptoms rather than root causes. For example, most inflammatory conditions are greatly exacerbated—even caused entirely—by how our minds and bodies react to stress. Change that reaction and you can make a profound change in your well-being.
Helping you move toward the life you desire
My mission is to use the discoveries, techniques and technologies of brilliant researchers to allow those suffering from an array of physical, emotional, sleep and pain issues to regain quality of life by giving their minds and bodies the tools and resources to restore more normal functioning.
Our medical advisor—and yours
My approach is to work collaboratively with your primary care physician, because a team approach is the ideal way to provide overall care and support. I also consult with our center’s medical advisor Dr. Bradford Weeks MD. Dr. Weeks has been practicing integrative medicine as a family physician for more than 25 years with extensive additional training in neurology, psychiatry and gerontology.
My Ottawa–Gatineau practice includes a number of multi-disciplinary techniques, technologies and restorative programs.
Pulsed Magnetic Resonance Stimulation
This advanced Swiss technology uses a Health Canada–registered class 2 medical device to assist your body’s ability to naturally repair and heal cells. Providing support for blood-oxygen capacity and circulation of blood and lymphatic systems, it can be used for circulatory issues (e.g., Renaud’s disease, diabetic ulcers, cold hands/feet) as well as bone pain, soft tissue injuries, arthritis and insomnia.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)*
Endorsed by well-known surgeon and author Dr. Mehmet Oz, and now offered through Britain’s National Health Service, EFT is an alternative therapy aimed at reducing the emotional impact of memories and events. It is used primarily for addressing issues such as PTSD, depression, anxiety, self-sabotage, incapacitating guilt, phobias and compulsions.
Rain International Nutrient Program*
This powerful, non-toxic anti-inflammatory and detoxification program is designed to support a return to normal cellular functioning. (No-risk guarantee: Purchase costs fully refunded if substantial relief is not experienced within 14 days.) Ideal for conditions related to inflammation in the brain or body such as arthritis, intestinal problems (irritable bowel, Crohn’s disease), asthma, COPD/emphysema and eczema. Also highly recommended for anxiety, ADD, insomnia and short-term memory problems. The program’s strong support for normalizing blood sugar has been beneficial for many with pre-diabetes or type two diabetes.
Audio/Visual Brain Entrainment and Hemispheric Integration
Similar to the effects of biofeedback techniques, this is a neuroscience approach to dealing with conditions such as ADD, anxiety and insomnia. How it works: Our brains are composed largely of cells called neurons that communicate through electro-chemical activity. This therapy uses specialized sound and light patterns to help the brain’s left and right hemispheres learn to communicate more effectively. It is also designed to gently assist the brain in learning to produce brainwaves in frequencies that are appropriate for different time-of-day alertness levels.
