Parents often wonder about their child’s health, growth and development, leading to the question: "Is my child healthy and growing and developing normally?" As we work together over time, your infant will be given an excellent opportunity to develop a healthy approach to nutrition, immune function, and working through common childhood illnesses. 


As your Naturopathic Doctor, we are committed to using modern diagnostic techniques and keeping abreast with current pediatric information. A typical visit schedule is as follows: 8-12 weeks, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, and twice yearly thereafter unless specific health concerns arise.


Consider concerns such as:

  • Optimizing immune function, brain health, growth, and development

  • Food sensitivities and intolerances

  • Skin issues – eczema, rashes 

  • Ear infections

  • Teething pain


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been in practice for thousands of years. It involves the insertion of very thin needles into specific areas of the body to activate and promote the body’s innate healing response. From a Western perspective, acupuncture stimulates blood flow, releases neurotransmitters and hormones, and releases tense muscles. There are many conditions treated with acupuncture including:

  • Pregnancy concerns: hip and back pain, cervical ripening, natural induction, breech position

  • Hormone balancing – PMS, long periods, period pain

  • Fertility including IVF and IUI support

  • Sleep issues, stress, and anxiety

  • Muscle and joint pain, sciatica

  • Digestive concerns – constipation, abdominal pain

EXAMS Injection Therapy –
IV Nutrient Therapy

Intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy is a unique way to improve nutrient status such as Iron. Not only are they great to replace important electrolytes and give the immune system a boost, most people find an increase in energy, improved sleep quality, and reduction in muscle tension. IV’s are a great way to get high doses of nutrients that provide building blocks for hormones, neurotransmitters, and other systems in our bodies that bypass the digestive track and go straight into the bloodstream and our cells. 

Our clinic also offers Iron IV's for those who qualify.

Prolotherapy & PRP


Prolotherapy and PRP are regenerative injection treatments that are used to decrease inflammation in injured and painful joints (such as knees, hips, shoulders and ankles).  Prolotherapy not only decreases inflammation, but simultaneously strengthens and repairs the ligaments, tendons, cartilage and nerves that make up and surround the joint – all resulting in decreased pain and improved joint function. 

Conditions that are commonly treated by prolotherapy include:

  • Osteoarthritis of any joint 

  • Sports injuries such as sprains/strains & fractures

  • Tendinitis 

  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) 

  • Knee injuries such as osteoarthritis, torn meniscus, MCL and ACL tears. 

  • Shoulder injuries including, rotator cuff injuries & frozen shoulder

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

  • Fibromyalgia 

  • Headaches 

  • Many more! 


Most injuries and areas of pain can in fact be treated successfully with prolotherapy.
