Massage is an effective complement to other treatments or as a standalone treatment for various injuries or general maintenance. You typically do not need a referral for massage therapy, but we recommend checking with your insurance provider to see if they require a doctor’s referral for your coverage.
Yoga therapy is an ancient tradition that is a relatively new method of healing to the western world. You can think of yoga therapy the same way you might think of other healing systems such as Chinese medicine. Yoga Therapy is a system that helps us identify various imbalances in a person, and then we offer techniques to bring those aspects into balance.
Vestibular therapy is a specialized form of physiotherapy that focuses on the complex system of the inner ear and brain that contribute to balance, spatial orientation, and coordination of eye movements. Without balance in this complex system it can contribute to vertigo, coordination and balance issues.
