Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that incorporates the art and science of traditional and natural forms of medicine with modern scientific knowledge. The practice of naturopathic medicine involves disease diagnosis as well as treatment and prevention using natural therapies that include botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation, traditional Chinese medicine / acupuncture and lifestyle counselling.

A Naturopathic Doctor is a primary care practitioner distinguished by their practicing philosophy, which seeks to restore and maintain optimum health by emphasizing nature’s inherent self-healing process. A naturopathic doctor views the individual from a holistic perspective, incorporating the physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors affecting the patient. Naturopathic medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than disease as an entity. The primary goal is to treat the underlying cause of the disease by selecting treatments that are unique to the individual and not simply the symptoms. This approach has proven successful in treating both chronic and acute conditions.

In Ontario, licensed Naturopathic Doctors have at least 7 years of post-secondary education, must graduate from an accredited educational institution, receive their professional licensing from the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO) as well as complete and pass international licensing exams (NPLEX). Naturopathic Doctors in Ontario are regulated under the Regulated Health Practitioners Act (RHPA) alongside medical doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and most other health-care providers in the province.

It is effective in treating loose sagging skin, wrinkles, scars, oily acne skin and dark circles under the eyes. It provides an alternative to Botox or surgery, enhances ones appearance and additionally addresses your overall well-being. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture helps to improve muscle tone and dermal contraction especially in the face and neck. Additionally, Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture has been shown to increase collagen production, which aids in helping to firm the skin and fill out wrinkles.

Chiropractic Care

Manual manipulation of the spine and other joints in the body has been mentioned since 1500 BC in Chinese and Greek writing. In fact, Hippocrates, the iconic Greek physician, published a text detailing the importance of manual manipulation and the role of the spine in diagnosing and treating illness. The official beginning of the modern chiropractic professional dates back to 1895 when Canadian, D.D. Palmer began to define the profession. Throughout the twentieth century, the profession has gained considerable recognition and scientific support. Chiropractic care is safe, effective and an important part of our comprehensive care delivery.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a regulated health care profession which seeks to assist people in attaining optimal functioning. It is a form of rehabilitation which is useful pre- and post-surgery, in dealing with chronic pain and illness, as well as recovering from injury. Physiotherapists also have a role in educating people in health promotion and disease prevention. In Canada, physiotherapists are currently required to have obtained a master’s level physical therapy degree through an accredited university program and to have successfully completed a national exam in order to be licensed.

Registered Massage Therapy

At NatCan, all massage therapy is provided by Registered Massage Therapists. Massage therapy is an important therapeutic tool for relaxation and deep muscular release. Registered Massage Therapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario and is a highly effective therapy for a variety of conditions and general wellness promotion. Massage therapy enhances joint function, improves circulation, increases metabolism and promotes the overall healing process. It is effective for many conditions in which body relaxation and the reduction of swelling and muscle mobilization are required. Massage therapy helps to bring relief from the stresses of everyday living and injury.

More and more Canadians are integrating massage therapy to assist with the physical manifestation of daily stress, seeking relief for a medical condition or complementing other therapies to speed in recovery. Massage is not a luxury. It is a necessity.

Research has shown therapeutic massage relaxes muscles, increases circulation, promotes lymphatic flow, improves healing time of strained ligaments and muscular tissues, reduces inflammation in joints, improves range of motion, reduces ones heart rate and assists in increasing endorphins, the body’s natural way of reducing pain. The principle form of massage therapy performed at NatCan is Swedish massage with several adjunctive therapeutic techniques that can be employed when necessary.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a common therapeutic intervention derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). All of our naturopathic doctors have completed hundreds of hours of training in acupuncture as part of their naturopathic medicine degrees. Acupuncture involves the use of small, sterile, non-reusable needles as part of a more comprehensive program or for acute conditions. At NatCan, acupuncture is performed by our naturopathic doctors as well as members of our chiropractic team. Unlike NDs, chiropractors perform medical acupuncture, a system that approaches treatment from a more physical paradigm.

Cupping
Cupping is an ancient component of TCM treatments. It is particularly effective for addressing muscle or chest congestion. Cupping involves the use of glass or plastic cups that are placed on the body to help increase circulation.
