Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.” The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury.

This amazing therapy has helped thousands of women realize their dream of becoming a mother through specific visceral manipulation of the reproductive organs, and is one of the most effective and impressive modalities for preparing the body for pregnancy. Mercier Therapy is an in-depth program based on 6 hours of deep visceral manipulation of the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes (through the abdomen). These organs are frequently adhered to other structures, or mispositioned within the pelvis, which can lead to decreased circulation (not enough nutrients and oxygen are reaching the organs, and toxins are not being filtered out of them efficiently) and suboptimal functioning of the organs. Mercier Therapy helps to realign the organs and improve blood flow to encourage a healthy conception.

Neuro Integration System (NIS)

What is NIS? Neurological Integration System (NIS) is based on the neurophysiology principle that the brain controls the functions of all the body’s systems. When we exceed our individual tolerance to stress (hormonal, emotional, structural, physical, pathological and/or neurological) the signaling between the brain and the body become disconnected or confused and that can lead to any number o...

What is NIS? Neurological Integration System (NIS) is based on the neurophysiology principle that the brain controls the functions of all the body’s systems. When we exceed our individual tolerance to stress (hormonal, emotional, structural, physical, pathological and/or neurological) the signaling between the brain and the body become disconnected or confused and that can lead to any number of symptoms. Two people may be experiencing the exact same symptom (migraine or insomnia for example), but NIS will often reveal that the cause is different in each individual. NIS therefore addresses the cause of a condition, not the symptoms. During a NIS treatment the Practitioner uses a series of specific protocols that guide the brain to re-establish cell connections or “reconnect” the brain to the cells in question. The Practitioner uses muscle testing to evaluate the status of each body system and integrates the treatment with gentle tapping. NIS is completely non invasive and does not use any equipment.

Your medical history: Before we start to treat you, we will make a full medical assessment. We take time to listen to you and ask questions to make sure we understand your medical history and your day-to-day routine. We’ll ask you about things like diet, exercise and what is happening in your life, as these may give clues to help our diagnosis. We may feel your pulse and check your reflexes. We may also take your blood pressure and refer you for clinical tests, such as x-rays, if we think you need them. Your posture: We usually look at your posture and how you move your body. We may also assess what happens when we move it for you and see what hurts, where and when. Trouble areas: Using touch, we may also find the areas which are sensitive or tight and this helps us to identify what’s going on. When we have done this, we can diagnose your condition. We may sometimes feel that osteopathy is not appropriate for you and refer you to your GP or another specialist such as an orthopedic surgeon. Your treatment: Osteopaths use a wide range of gentle manipulations, depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis. Treatment is different for every patient but may include techniques such as different types of soft tissue massage and joint articulation to release tension, stretch muscles, help relieve pain and mobilize your joints. Sometimes, when we move joints you may hear a ‘click’. This is just like the click people get when they crack their knuckles. We may discuss exercises that you can do to improve your posture and movement in your workplace and everyday life. (Taken from the British Osteopathic Association website)

Infant Massage

Babies under the age of one are constantly in transformation, growing and learning at a rate far exceeding any other age group, all while adapting to a brand new world with only a few ways of communicating.

Massage and nurturing touch is one of the most primal and wonderful ways of comforting and communicating with your baby. Not only does it promote a secure attachment between babies and parents, it can help with development, soothing, digestion, sleep, and mood (among many other things).

There are numerous benefits for parents as well. Massaging babies has shown to help lower the rates of baby blues and postpartum depression (for both parents), improve new parent confidence, and lower stress levels. It is a great way for dads to bond with infants.

I believe that the best person in the world to comfort, bond with, and massage your baby is you. That is why I work with a doll to demonstrate the techniques for you, and you will work with your baby.

In a 1 hour session, you will learn techniques for different areas of the body, what kind of oil is best to use for babies, how to develop a daily routine, and when it is best to give your baby a massage (and when not to).

*If your baby is fussy or sleeping or just not wanting a massage at the moment, don’t fret! We respect babies cues, and if they need to sleep, or be held the whole time, or fed, that is just fine. You will be given handouts with all of the techniques explained, and I have dolls to show you the routines. Whatever your baby wants, we make it work.

Sheryl Baniulis is a registered massage therapist, and registered holistic nutritionist with a focus on fertility, prenatal and postnatal wellness. She was trained in infant massage instructing by the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM).
