Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that incorporates the art and science of traditional and modern scientific knowledge. The practice of naturopathic medicine involves the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease using natural therapies that include botanical medicine, supplements, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation, Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture and lifestyle counselling.

A Naturopathic Doctor is a primary care practitioner distinguished by their practicing philosophy, which seeks to restore and maintain optimum health by emphasizing nature’s inherent self-healing process. A Naturopathic Doctor views the individual from a holistic perspective, incorporating the physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors affecting the patient. Naturopathic medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than disease as an entity. The primary goal is to treat the underlying cause of the disease by selecting treatments that are unique to the individual and not simply the symptoms. This approach has proven successful in treating both chronic and acute conditions.

Homeopathy

This methodology aims to go to the deepest level of experience and the origin of disease with the aim of bringing relief of symptoms on a mental, emotional and physical level.
It is with this understanding in mind that Leigh treats all conditions in all age groups because homeopathy treats the person who has symptoms rather than just the symptoms themselves.

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a gentle, manual, holistic approach with no forceful pressure or cracking, aiming to align the body to promote healing of chronic pain and pathologies.

At NatCan, all massage therapy is provided by Registered Massage Therapists. Massage therapy is an important therapeutic tool for relaxation and deep muscular release. Registered Massage Therapy is a regulated health profession in Ontario and is a highly effective therapy for a variety of conditions and general wellness promotion. Massage therapy enhances joint function, improves circulation, increases metabolism and promotes the overall healing process. It is effective for many conditions in which body relaxation and the reduction of swelling and muscle mobilization are required. Massage therapy helps to bring relief from the stresses of everyday living and injury.

More and more Canadians are integrating massage therapy to assist with the physical manifestation of daily stress, seeking relief for a medical condition or complementing other therapies to speed in recovery. Massage is not a luxury. It is a necessity.

Research has shown therapeutic massage relaxes muscles, increases circulation, promotes lymphatic flow, improves healing time of strained ligaments and muscular tissues, reduces inflammation in joints, improves range of motion, reduces ones heart rate and assists in increasing endorphins, the body’s natural way of reducing pain. The principle form of massage therapy performed at the Integrative Health Institute is Swedish massage with several adjunctive therapeutic techniques that can be employed when necessary.
