Integrative Medicine is a holistic discipline that employs many ways to evaluate and assess function within the body. This integrative approach focuses on identifying malfunctions and underlying conditions at the root of most common health challenges. We focus on correcting malfunctions of the hormones, immune, digestive, detoxification and intestinal barrier systems. By establishing integrative treatment protocols, we are able to deliver improved clinical outcomes and support a healthcare community that practices healing by addressing the mind, body and spirit.
Pulsed Magnetic Therapy(PEMF-Needle Free)
PEMF uses electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through injured tissue whereby each magnetic pulse induces a tiny electrical signal that stimulates cellular repair. Many studies have also demonstrated the effectiveness of PEMF in healing soft-tissue wounds; suppressing inflammatory responses at the cell membrane level to alleviate pain, and increasing range of motion. The value of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been shown to cover a wide range of conditions, with well documented trials carried out by hospitals, rheumatologists, physiotherapists and neurologists.
Laser Therapy (needle free)
This therapy stimulates acupuncture points without the use of needles. Research validates the healing effects of cold lasers and their ability to reduce pain and inflammation and stimulate the body’s innate healing response.
Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction.
Functional Medicine employs functional laboratory assessments to address the underlying causes of malfunction in the body (health complaints). Functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. The focus of functional medicine is systems, not symptoms. This whole body health approach focuses on correcting malfunctions of the hormones, immune, digestive, detoxification and intestinal barrier systems.
Auricular Therapy (Painless Ear Acupuncture)
This therapy is an acupuncture treatment performed on the ear. The ear is regarded as a complete representation of the body (micro system) and is able to affect all aspects of physiology. This procedure strongly promotes Qi and blood in the channels and adjusts organ functions.

Smoking cessation (colloquially quitting smoking) is the process of discontinuing the practice of inhaling a smoked substance. Smoking cessation can be achieved with or without assistance from healthcare professionals or the use of medications. Methods that have been found to be effective include interventions directed at or via health care providers and health care systems; medications including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) and varenicline; individual and group counselling. Although stopping smoking can cause short-term side effects such as reversible weight gain, smoking cessation services and activities are cost-effective because of the positive health benefits.
Like herbal medicine, recommendation are based on the flavors and thermal effects of the overall combination of ingredients and on the patient’s constitution and imbalances. In general, a balanced diet in terms of flavors and thermal effects will lead to health.
A gentle electrical current using electrodes attached to acupuncture needles may be passed between acupoints in order to increase the effectiveness of removing obstruction from the channels.
