What You Need To Know
A full intake will be conducted to explore the entirety of your health. From blood work, to physical exams and truly taking the time to listen to your health concerns, we can get to the root of the problem and create long term, sustainable health solutions- not just Band-Aids. Your first visit with our Naturopathic Doctor is one hour in length. The first visit is an information gathering visit to identify all possible health concerns, and decide which blood work to run, if any. You may or may not be sent home with a treatment on the first visit. If you’re coming for prolotherapy, a treatment can be done on the same day.
IV therapy is a very comfortable treatment. You will feel the initial poke of the needle, then a slightly cool sensation as the IV runs. Once you are set up, the IV shouldn’t burn, ache or be uncomfortable. You can kick back and relax with a cup of tea and watch a movie. IVs take anywhere from 30mins- 2 hours, depending on what you are coming for.
If you’re coming in for IVs, you can help make the process easier by eating prior to the infusion, making sure that you’re well hydrated and that you are warm. The clinic provides tea, coffee, water, Netflix and blankets. Feel free to bring a book if you would like to catch up on your latest novel. Not everyone can get IV therapy. You will need to get an initial consult done first, then blood work to assess if IVs are safe for you to do.
Colon hydrotherapy cleans the colon gently and effectively to remove toxins and buildup contributing to many symptoms and ill health effects. Colon hydrotherapy helps retrain the bowel wall to improve its natural movement of peristalsis. Colon Hydrotherapy is an important component of an overall treatment program for both illness and wellness. Simply put- colon hydrotherapy is water in, waste out.
Colon hydrotherapy is actually more comfortable than you would think. A small speculum is used, and inserted into the rectum while you lie on your side, in the fetal position. Once the tube is inserted, you roll on to your back. You are well covered throughout the process, making only the first couple seconds uncomfortable. The water that is used goes through an extensive filtration process and is warmed to your body temperature. You may experience some cramping when the bowels start to contract. A heat pack is placed on the stomach to help ease this. After approximately 45 minutes of several fills of water in and waste out, the procedure is complete. The disposable tube is removed, and then you go to the washroom to void the remainder of the water. You may have several more trips to the washroom that day, but otherwise you should feel cleansed, slightly lighter, and well hydrated.
You want to eat a very small and easy to digest meal a few hours before your appointment. Eating right before can cause nausea and discomfort. You want to avoid alcohol 24 hours before your treatment, and make sure to drink plenty of water. Patients who are prone to constipation may want to take a magnesium supplement the night before to soften the bowels.
No! Colonics are safe for most people and the health benefits can help everyone. We all have a build up of toxicity in our colon walls and removing this can help to increase absorption, and improve overall health and detoxification.
Prolotherapy and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) are both solutions that cause non-surgical joint repair. Prolotherapy is a dextrose and lidocaine solution. PRP starts with a blood draw. Your blood is then put into a centrifuge, and then the platelet rich portion is removed. PRP has many healing properties including stem cell precursors that help to repair joints, in some cases more effectively than prolotherapy. In both situations, the solution is injected into the affected joint.
Prolotherapy and PRP are not pain free, but a small needle is used along with some freezing which makes it pretty close to pain free. You will feel the poke of the needle and some pressure when the fluid is injected. After the injections your joint will feel full, heavy and frozen. When the freezing wears off, you will experience pain for approximately 24-48 hours as your joint heals. You are unable to do activity on the treated joint for up to 2 weeks for best results.
An ultrasound is not used at the clinic for the therapy. Ultrasound will allow you to treat the very specific tear or weakness in the joint but the reality of it is this…A joint injury doesn’t happen unless there is weakness and instability in the joint as a whole. You may have a tendon or ligament tear in a specific area, but treating the entire joint will help to address the root of the problem. The other reality is that the solution doesn’t just fill where the ultrasound head views. The solution will disperse in the joint fairly quickly. The needle is doing a majority of the work.
The cosmetic laser at the clinic has many different attachments. Laser hair removal, IPL for pigment control, and sublime for skin tightening all feel fairly similar. They almost feel like a tiny elastic band hitting the skin, providing a small zap with little pain. Sublative technology is slightly more aggressive and feels like a sunburn for a few hours after the laser is applied.
Erika Bell has advanced therapy training and performs more than just a massage. Her massages are very therapeutic in nature. She uses a technique called RAPID, which is a fascial stripping technique, as well as dynamic cupping on top of regular massage.

Currently, Metabolic Balance is the most successful weight loss program in the world. Why we love it is because it is much more than a weight loss program. The diet is based on your full medical history, comprehensive blood work, medications, goals and food preferences. The result is a fully customized diet that will decrease inflammation, balance hormones, improve chronic diseases and in some cases, allow people to reduce pharmaceutical medications.
The first step is to make an appointment at the clinic. In the first visit, we conduct your medical intake, take weight and measurements as well as fasting blood work. You will also get to select your food preferences at this appointment. When your blood work and plan arrive (usually less than a week), you will return to the clinic to review your plan. Our team will walk you through exactly how to eat, when to eat and how much to eat, based on your program. You will then visit the clinic weekly for check in’s and support!
