Psychology seeks to help people with a range of personal difficulties. Often, these problems cause distress or difficulty in how someone is feeling, thinking, behaving or learning. Our psychologists are trained to apply their knowledge in practical ways to help people understand their difficulties and explore ways of making positive changes.
Behavioral Medicine is an interdisciplinary field combing both medicine and psychology and is concerned with the integration of knowledge in the biological, behavioral, psychological, and social sciences relevant to health and illness. Many of the health problems are primarily viewed as behavioral in nature, as opposed to medical. For example, smoking, leading a sedentary lifestyle, and alcohol abuse or other substance abuse are all factors in the leading causes of death or illness in many developed countries.
Hypnosis Therapy is usually considered an aid to psychotherapy because the hypnotic state allows people to explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories they might have hidden from their conscious minds.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic system of healthcare with its own unique theories of anatomy, health, and treatment. It emphasizes on diet and prevention. Using acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage, and exercise, it focuses on stimulating the body’s natural curative powers. This can result in more effective pain relief which speeds up the recovery process through more natural methods.
The TCM approach at the clinic works integrating the conventional western physical therapies with the Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques to offer outcomes that can be measured.
Many medical conditions can be treated or improved by TCM, which range from common illnesses such as flu, cough, asthma, indigestion, constipation, sprain of hand/leg, knee joint inflammation to more complicated illnesses such as back fasciitis, stroke, diabetes, hypertension, cardio-vascular diseases, early stage dementia, early stage cancer, depression, insomnia, etc.
Functional Diagnostic Nutrition is an emerging field and body of work that bridges the gap between clinical nutrition and functional medicine. It is a type of detective work that seeks to identify and correct the underlying causes and conditions that lead to common health complaints.
Weight management is a long term approach to a healthy lifestyle. It includes a balance of healthy eating and physical exercise to equate energy expenditure and energy intake. Developing healthy eating habits while using tips that will keep us fuller longer can be useful tools in weight management. Our weight management program combines the team work of our nutritionists, psychologist and personal trainers to achieve sustainable and long lasting effects.
Through soft tissue manipulation and movement education, Rolfing affects body posture and structure over the long-term. Unlike massage, which often focuses on relaxation and relief of muscle discomfort, Rolfing is aimed at improving body alignment and functioning. Rolfing practitioners are trained to create overall ease and balance throughout the entire structure, rather than focusing on areas presenting with tension. As a structure becomes more organized, chronic strain patterns are alleviated, and pain and stress decreases.
Structural integration is generally performed over a series of ten sessions. This approach allows the Rolfer to affect the client’s structure in a methodical manner. This includes loosening superficial fascia before working deeper areas, improving support in feet and legs before affecting higher structures, and helping clients find ways to benefit from freer movement in their daily activities.
Deep Tissue Sports Massage is dedicated to improving performance, boosting flexibility and handling old injuries while preventing potential injuries. During the treatment our sports therapists will use a combination of techniques including trigger point release, joint mobilization and passive stretching such as soft tissue active release and myofascial release while also focusing on newly formed more superficial small knots to help promote a sustainable balance in the body that will help prevent or reduce injuries while training or performing the sports you love.
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. While mindfulness is something we all naturally possess, it’s more readily available to us when we practice on a daily basis. Mindfulness meditation asks us to suspend judgment and unleash our natural curiosity about the workings of the mind, approaching our experience with warmth and kindness, to ourselves and others.
Whenever you bring awareness to what you’re directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thoughts and emotions, you’re being mindful. And there’s growing research showing that when you train your brain to be mindful, you’re actually remodeling the physical structure of your brain.
Our Mindfulness Programs offer tools to explore the human condition in all its variety. You can also find a program that is targeted toward a particular problem, such as depression or addiction, or need, such as leadership or childbirth.
