At Ferny Chiropractic, we offer a range of Complimentary Therapies that can assist you on your road to Wellness.
Naturopathy is a wholistic modality that allows us to help your body to heal itself. With the use of modalities such as Herbal Medicine, Nutrition, Nutritional Supplements and Massage, Naturopathy will encourage your body to overcome a wide range of health issues.
Acupuncture is partly integrated with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Dating back thousands of years in China Acupuncture is an effective, naturally and increasingly popular form of health care that is being used by people from a wide range of health issues. Focusing to restore health and reduce pain through stimulating your own bodies healing mechanisms, treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points (the acu-points) along the body’s meridians.
Massage works to release and relieve the tension that builds from everyday stress along with overuse and mis-use of our muscles through activity and exercise. Trained in various Massage techniques, our therapists will actively treat problem areas with remedial techniques and equally recommend gentle stretches and lifestyle ideas to reduce the build-up of tension.
