Introducing-Osetopathy-Meghan-Martin 700

Osteopathy is a therapy and treatment that helps restore proper biomechanics and vitality to all systems of the body. 

Osteopaths are trained to treat the cause of an issue, not the symptom and use a manual approach to find areas of restrictive movement in the body. Alleviating any restrictions allows the body to flow and heal itself. 

Meghan Martin is a professional member of the National Manual Osteopathic Society and the Society of Osteopaths of Canada. Coupled with her BSc in Kinesiology, she has an extensive background in body mechanics and has helped many patients re-align and enhance their body’s healing process.

staying-healthy-this-winter-christina 700The transition into Winter brings change — a change in weather, routine, and often our health (hello, flu season). But this gives us a chance to improve our well being, increase energy and protect ourselves against colds and flu that inevitably circulate. Here are some tips on staying healthy this winter:


1. Eat local, in season produce: take advantage of the bounty that your local farmers markets have to offer! Squash, pumpkin, apples, cranberries all offer loads of nutrients and can be easily incorporated into easy fall and winter recipes.

2. Stay hydrated! It's easy in summer to guzzle down water from the warm summer temperatures and a little harder to remember once it cools down. Keeping your body hydrated is the easiest way to increase energy and vibrancy, as well as helping with bodily functions and improving digestion.

3. Boost your immune system. Limit sugar intake, stay hydrated, and eat colourful fruits and veggies for vitamins and minerals. Peppers, kale and sprouts all have high amounts of Vitamin C and will keep that immunity high!
