How we can help your body heal

Our reputation, our team and our experience make us the most trusted and turned to in all of Salmon Arm and the Shuswap for health and wellness

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the practice of puncturing the skin with needles at certain anatomical points in the body to relieve specific symptoms associated with many diseases

Laser Therapy

Low-Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT, phototherapy, ‘cold laser’) uses red and infrared light to relieve pain, accelerate healing and decrease inflammation. 

Massage Therapy

All of our therapists are Registered with the College of Massage Therapy of BC. Registered Massage Therapists have the highest standards in North America.

Functional Medicine

Combining modern Functional Medicine with the ancient wisdom of East Asian Medicine.

Functional Medicine shares many principles with traditional East Asian Medicine.  Both recognize our bodies as complex interconnected webs. Both are systems-oriented approaches to the whole person – including environment.  Both have the goal of bringing a person back to their best state of health, identifying root imbalances and treating with a personalized approach.  These imbalances can be precursors – the first sign that real disease or impairment is impending. Both Functional Medicine and East Asian Medicine are preventive medicines.

I feel so much better

Thank you, Donna, for your great work yesterday. I don’t know what you did, but I feel so much better than I have in weeks.

Results were better and longer lasting

I received laser therapy for treatment of neck pain.  I was relieved of pain after 5 treatments.  The results were better and longer lasting than other therapies.
