Naturopathy / Homeopathy

Anti-aging protocols- Natural aesthetic procedures, non surgical facelift and facial rejuvenation, cellulite treatment, and breast firming.

Mesotherapy- A minimally invasive procedure widely used across Europe and internationally. In addition to being an alternative cosmetic procedure, it is used to treat various injuries and medical conditions. It is a non-surgical solution targeting problem areas with microinjections of either homeopathic or FDA approved conventional medicines such as vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, enzymes and amino acids. Small amounts of these products are delivered directly into the mesoderm (the middle layer of skin) that are highly specific to the condition being treated. Mesotherapy can be used for eliminating cellulites and local fat deposits, promoting weight loss and provide natural support in anti aging. It is also used to treat acute and chronic sprains, strains, muscular aches and joint problems.

Bowen Therapy- A muscle and connective tissue therapy. It involves a series of gentle, rolling motions often referred to as "soft tissue manipulation" that stimulate the body to heal itself. The Bowen technique usually results in relief of many health problems and specific injuries both acute and chronic. This is done using the body's innate healing power, through the practitioner delivering signals to the nervous system at specific locations on muscles, nerves, tendons or ligaments.

The Bowen technique addresses the entire body by restoring balance via the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). Most people today live in a state of constant stress or sympathetic ANS over stimulation (fight or flight). Healing generally occurs when people are in a more relaxed or parasympathetic dominant state. The Bowen technique seems to help the individual shift to a parasympathetic state, which is why patients often fall into deep relaxation or fall asleep during sessions. Each treatment includes sets of soft tissue manipulations, with short pauses (minimum of 2 minutes) in between to allow the body to adjust and integrate the changes.

Some conditions that can respond well to Bowen are:

  • Back pain and sciatica
  • Temporomandibular Joint disorder
  • Hip, knee, ankle and foot problems
  • Neck and shoulder problems
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow
  • Groin pain, pelvic tilt and uneven leg length
  • Sports and other traumatic injuries
  • Menstrual and hormonal problems
  • Respiratory problems
  • Digestive and bowel problems

Intravenous Therapy- Allows the rapid delivery of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, by bypassing the digestive tract and injecting substances directly into the blood stream. Though diet typically provides the basic needs of the body, certain nutrients can have a stronger effect when provided at a higher dosage. IV therapy achieves the pharmaceutical dosage that would be impossible to attain through oral consumption. It is an effective and powerful treatment for a range of conditions including:

  • Fatigue
  • Acute bacterial & Viral infections
  • Deppression
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle spasm
  • Migrain headache
  • Detoxification
  • PMS
  • Cancer
  • Crohn's disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Post surgery
  • Slow recovery from illnesses

Chelation therapy- an effective alternative therapy in treating many chronic and degenerative illnesses caused by heavy metal toxicity. Chelation therapy involves the intravenous infusion of chelating agents such as DMPS or EDTA (Ethylene Diamine Tetra-acetic Acid). EDTA removes toxic heavy metals, mainly lead, as well as excessive metalic ions such as iron from the body, therefore cleansing the blood and improving circulatory and metabolic functions of the body. EDTA can effectively be used in the treatment of many cardiovascular and circulatory diseases such as carotid artery disease, atherosclerosis, venous stasis disorders, cerebral vascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, coronary artery disease, as well as other degenerative disease such as multiple scelorosis, alzheimer's disease, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune disorders. DMPS is a sulfur based compound mainly used for removal of mercury, however it does have an effect on the removal of other heavy metals, such as lead, arsenic and cadmium.

Speech & Language / Orton Gillingham Therapeutic Tutoring

Orton-Gillingham Therapeutic Tutoring is a multisensory phonics-based approach to reading, writing and spelling.

It provides:
explicit instruction in the written code of the English language;
one-to-one tutoring that allows constant interaction between the tutor and student to maximize learning each tutoring session;
a sequential step by step approach that is success oriented; and
a positive learning environment that centers on enabling students to become self-correcting and independent learners.

It can benefit students who:
are struggling with reading, writing and/or spelling and performing below their expected level in these areas;
who have not been successful with other reading programs;
are dyslexic; and/or
guess at words or struggle to read unfamiliar words.

These persons can succeed when the teacher or those responsible for their success:
understand language; its processing; production and structure;
understand the nature of a specific language difference and its ramification; and
understand the way dyslexics learn.


Studies Show:
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) in the United States have concluded the best strategy for preventing and correcting reading problems is explicit, systematic instruction that emphasizes:

Early letter knowledge and phonemic awareness;
Instruction in letter-sound correspondence and spelling generalizations;
Opportunity and encouragement to use spelling-sound knowledge in reading and writing;
Daily sessions for supported and independent reading with attention to fluency and comprehension; and
Active exploration of concepts provided in written text.

The Orton-Gillingham approach meets all of these criteria.
