Chiropractor, Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
At Oaktree Ottawa, our mission is to help as many people as possible to become healthy using the amazing natural healing power that lives within each of us. While we do help with pain relief, our goal is to get to the root of the problem and not just focus on treating the symptoms. Optimize your health and life at Oaktree!
Unlike regular chiropractic services based in Ottawa that mainly focus on immediate pain relief, at Oaktree we go one step further to correct the source of the problem. Our focus is spinal reconstruction, where we move and restructure the spine through adjustments and specific corrective stretches and exercises.
The style of acupuncture we use at Oaktree is unique. It is a completely different system than what is found in most acupuncture clinics. Most of the points we use are in the extremities and the head, and by combining the right points, we are able to treat the whole body. The needles are rarely inserted where the pain is felt, but rather on an associated part of the body. It provides very fast, often immediate, results.
Chinese herbal remedies are tailored to the individual patient and usually made up of a number of herbal and mineral extracts. Typically, one or two herbs are included that will have the greatest effect on the problem being treated. Other ingredients in the formula treat minor aspects of the problem, direct the formula to specific parts of the body, and help the other herbs work better.Learn more about Chinese Medicine.
In addition to acupuncture and Chinese herbs, cupping is another traditional Chinese medicine tool that we offer here at Oaktree. A Chinese Fire Cupping session will produce similar results as a deep tissue massage. With cupping, we place heat in the cup to create a vacuum effect which will draw the skin up into the cup. This suction effect will bring fresh oxygenated blood to the area, release toxins and promote lymphatic drainage.Learn more about Cupping.
