As a Health Centre, there are services we have that can be used individually, or as part of other therapies and treatments at the Centre. We have these listed here, and in conjunction with other sections that apply.
Acupuncture involves connecting with specific points along the skin to help treat conditions. Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has a long history as a complementary therapy.
Dr. Nik, Dr. Lindsay and Dr. Shane are all certified in acupuncture through the chiropractic college.They may suggest acupuncture in conjunction with chiropractic care for your optimum relief. Acupuncture is also used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function in various areas of the body.
In addition. Dr. Lindsay uses acupuncture for smoking cessation.
Can you really workout properly in 15 minutes? Now you can at Integrated Health Centre.
This new 15-minute weekly workout is a one-on-one session that involves different intervals of training. The workout is custom-built to work with each individual, and still only lasts 15 minutes. The intensity is adjusted to suit each person's ability, and to ensure the workout moves with them as they improve.
This workout was brought to the Centre in the Spring of 2014 as a way to help clients who are challenged by time, motivation and ability in meeting their fitness goals. Whether a medical need or for personal achievement, MedEx is an option for anyone.
Bio-Electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA)
Acupuncture, BIA and Med Ex!
A Bio-Electrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) helps determine what your body looks like inside: lean versus non-lean mass, water content and the amount of your weight that is fat versus non-fat. It is often used to determine how your weight is comprised - the percentage that is muscle and the percentage that is fat. This information can be used to help plan eating habits that will move you towards achieving healthy results.
The BIA measures how expediently an electric current runs through your body. There is no discomfort to the process, and in fact, there is no feeling at all. A sensor is attached to your foot and your calf and the test is performed in seconds. The results are then recorded and from there, a nutrition plan can be enacted if you choose.
In addition to measuring body mass composition, the BIA can assist our Health Coach in determining if you would benefit from a cleansing program or a detoxification program. It can also help determine how changes to your diet can assist with a healthier eating guide - the amount of dairy, vegetables, proteins, oils and more that you should be consuming daily. No plans, just food choices.
The BIA can be done periodically to see how the body composition has changed. At Integrated Health Centre, this is performed by the health Coach and Nutritionist to help give you the best information about the Analysis and help you with any options moving forward.
