Weekend Warrior

E. is a weekend warrior, although his injury occurred on a Wednesday. Like many “athletes”, E. primarily plays his sports on the weekend or fits them into his schedule on an ad hoc basis. These sports are usually: hockey, baseball, cycling. Most are team sports, but ones that require intense exercise or bursts of energy

Whether they are coming in for therapy, relaxation, stress relief, acupuncture, or skin care we have the experience and caring practitioners who can give good quality care.

RICE for Tears

Last night while playing baseball, I ran full-out to beat the throw to first. I made it, but I PAID for it! When I heard a POP, I suffered a partial tear of my hamstring. I hobbled the remainder of the game, and went to the ER (at Toronto East General Hospital) to get the

I See You

To paraphrase the Wicked Witch of The West (in The Wizard of Oz), “All the better to see you with, my pretty…” we now have a LED magnifying glass which will allow us to see your skin in intimate detail. Flip on the light switch and ALL your imperfections show up. Actually, it’s not that bad.

Do you Still have Winter Posture?

Despite the unseasonably warm weather that we’ve been experiencing (at least in some parts of Canada, especially in Toronto), I’m still seeing patients come in with hunched shoulders and compressed necks while staving off the cold. What will they do when the weather changes? For those lucky enough to get away for a Caribbean holiday,

Pain Free

While in midst of yet another renovation project, first on the building now on my home, I’m discovering more aches and pains than I thought possible. I’m currently seeing Andrew, our Chiropractor who is keeping me limber and pain-free. His goal is to keep me healthy, my goal is the same, but when you’re renovating

ACUPUNCTURE
