Osteopathy, as it was originally intended, is a holistic, drugless manual system of Health-care.
Osteopathy is a “total body” system of manual therapy. Based on bio-mechanical principles, which use a wide range of techniques to treat muscular and skeletal problems and other functional disorders of the body.
Osteopathic manual practitioners assess and treat your body as a whole, because symptoms sometimes show up in a different part of your body from where the problem actually is there may be several factors contributing to the symptoms you experience. Practitioners go through many years of training to develop their highly refined palpatory skills. Osteopathic evaluation and treatment is based on this theory and as a result is unique to other forms of therapy. Osteopaths recognize the fact that the human body is self-regulating and self-healing and will strive for health if given a chance. The role of the Osteopath is to encourage this self-healing capacity though manual treatment-to convert the physical into the physiological.

Colon hydrotherapy, or colonics, is a centuries-old therapy using filtered water to flush accumulated fecal waste, harmful bacteria, intestinal parasites, gas and mucus from the colon. It is a safe and gentle yet powerful way to cleanse the body, and to make all body systems and organs more efficient.

The colon, or large intestine, is the end portion of the human digestive tract (food carrying passageway extending from the mouth to the anus). The colon is approximately 5 feet long and 2 inches in diameter. Its major function is to eliminate waste and conserve water.

What It Does:

Colon hydrotherapy is a holistic method used to remove waste material, especially that which has remained in the colon for some time (i.e. impacted feces, dead cellular tissue, accumulated mucous, parasites, worms, etc.) pose several problems. Firstly, this material is quite toxic (poisonous). These poisons can re-enter and circulate in the bloodstream making us feel ill, tired or weak. Secondly, impacted materials impair the colon’s ability to assimilate minerals and bacteria-produced vitamins. Finally, a build-up of material on the colon wall can inhibit muscular action causing sluggish bowel movements and constipation, which are the result of these disorders.

Toxic Build Up:

By relieving the body of toxic build-up, colon hydrotherapy can dramatically improve bowel function. Whereas accumulated fecal matter promotes the growth of undesirable bacteria and their toxic by-products, a clean colon allows beneficial bacteria to proliferate. These beneficial bacteria manufacture important vitamins, including biotin, which is essential for the proper breakdown of carbohydrates, proteins and fats; cobalamin (vitamin B12), which promotes red blood cell formation and assists in the production of neurotransmitters (chemicals that transmit nerve impulses); and vitamin K, a key factor in normal blood-clotting and in the development of healthy bone structure. Beneficial bacteria also produces lactic acid, which creates an antagonistic environment for other types of unwelcome bacteria.

Toxic build-up in the colon not only upsets the balance of intestinal bacteria, it promotes mucus formation as a protective mechanism to “disable” toxic organisms. Waste and mucus become encrusted and adhere to the colon wall, preventing the proper transfer of vitamins and minerals into the body, and of waste and debris out of the body. A congested colon can have adverse effects on other systems of elimination and detoxification, such as the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system, lungs and skin, as these attempt to cope with toxic excess. What results is a loss of energy and vitality which create symptoms that can ultimately degenerate into illness.

As the water enters the body and fills the space within the colon, it applies a gentle pressure against the muscles of the colon wall, provoking a contraction-like action called peristalsis. Peristalsis is the mechanism by which waste matter is propelled throughout the colon and ultimately excreted. Impacted fecal matter inhibits peristalsis, weakening the muscle tissue and distorting the size and shape of the colon. In certain areas, waste matter will accumulate and stretch the colon wall, creating “pouches” which may become enlarged as they continue to trap waste. In other areas, the colon will spasm as the
muscles strain in an attempt to contract, creating a narrowing of the colon which restricts the passage of fecal waste. As the weight of accumulating waste increases, the colon droops and becomes displaced, resulting in what is called a prolapse.

Benefits of the Infra Red Sauna,
1. Detoxification
Sweating is one of the body’s most natural ways to eliminate toxins,
Infrared saunas allow you to eliminate about seven times more toxins.

2. Relaxation
Infrared sauna therapy promotes relaxation by helping to balance your body’s level of cortisol, your body’s primary stress hormone. The heat generated by the sauna will also help to relax muscles and relieve tension throughout the body, allowing you to relax and de-stress.

3. Pain Relief
If you suffer from muscle aches or joint pain, infrared saunas can relieve this form of inflammation by increasing circulation and relaxing your muscles.

4. Weight Loss
The heat generated by an infrared sauna will cause your core temperature to increase, which can also lead to an increased heart rate — the same increase in heart rate that you experience when exercising. When your body has to work harder to lower your core temperature or keep up with an increased heart rate, your body will burn more calories, resulting in weight loss. An article, titled Effect of Sweating, in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that a 30-minute infrared sauna session could burn roughly 600 calories.

5. Improved Circulation
As the heat from infrared saunas increases your core body temperature, your circulation will increase along with it.

Stimulate blood flow, improve muscle recovery, and decrease pain and inflammation after intense exercise.

6. Skin Purification
Infrared sauna technology can help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.

Acupuncture targets musculoskeletal pain and movement disorders, sports injuries, functional problems, problems of dysregulation, headaches, stress-related disorders, chronic pain, etc.). Acupuncture comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and involves insertion of very thin, single use needles into specific points on the body along meridians or channels where energy flows. The TCM label this energy as qi or chi (CHEE). By contrast, the Western Medical viewpoint is that acupuncture activates nerves, muscles and connective tissue increasing pain relief, promoting blood flow, while decreasing inflammation and stimulating healing.

Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain, including low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) and can be used in conjunction with other hands on therapies including physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy and massage therapy. It can also be used during pregnancy to deal with the muscular discomfort, to induce labor for post-dates pregnancy, or fertility during conception period.
