Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that addresses the root causes of illness or disease and promotes health and wellness using natural therapies.

Naturopathic Doctors are highly educated, licensed, primary health care practitioners, who integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies.

They work in partnership with other regulated healthcare providers to ensure that patients receive the most comprehensive and effective care possible.

In Ontario, NDs are licensed under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991. Registration requirements for an ND include extensive training for at least four (4) years at an accredited College of Naturopathic Medicine. The minimum prerequisites for acceptance at an accredited Naturopathic College include at least 3 years of a University science and healthcare program as a pre-med education. Most NDs have taken the extra year to get Bachelor of Science degrees and more.

Naturopathic Medicine offers a customized approach to health care, where treatment plans are tailored to suit individual patients.



Using targeted laboratory testing allows the NDs an in-depth insight into what biochemical mechanisms may be causing symptoms. This includes conventional blood testing as well as specialized lab tests that are more comprehensive (IgG Food Sensitivity Testing, DUTCH test, Salivary Hormone Testing, and more).



Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy is a form of therapy commonly used for its wide range of health benefits. It is an effective way of delivering nutrients in concentrated forms. IV Therapy can support cancer treatment, and can benefit fibromyalgia, migraines, chronic fatigue, and pain management, to name a few.
It is a safe, effective, and restorative means of receiving customized treatment for individual patients and their needs.



Reflexology is an ancient healing art which is over 3000 years old. Its roots go back to India, Egypt, and China. The therapy is primarily done on the feet and hands. There are reflexes on the hands and feet which correspond to every organ and system of the body. Through massage techniques and application of pressure on these reflexes, toxins are broken up which are stored in the tissues, removing any blockages in the energy pathways which may be present. Reflexology promotes balance within the body, may help increase circulation, help with foot pain, and relieve stress within the body.

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing therapy which works with the life force energy in all living things known as 'Ki' or 'Chi'. Through a series of hand positions throughout the body, Reiki helps to restore balance and healing to the body. Reiki is known to ease pain, promote deep relaxation, and overall balance on all levels; mind, body, and spirit. Not only does it work with the physical body, it works with our energy centres, known as Chakras, which help the body to improve overall function on every level.



The practice of Massage Therapy is the assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body. It includes the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissue and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate, or augment physical function.

Massage Therapy can be used as a treatment for both acute and chronic conditions. RMTs work with a wide variety of clients in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation and disability, and can offer significant benefits for a variety of conditions.

Massage Therapy can help alleviate musculoskeletal disorders associated with everyday stress, muscular overuse, the physical manifestation of mental conditions, and many persistent pain syndromes.

Massage Therapy can also be used as a part of a preventative care program.

As discovered by the founder of Osteopathy, Dr. Taylor Stills, the body functions as a unit. When it is compromised due to posture or injury, for example, the circulation, nerve supply, hormone secretion etc. are also compromised.  An Osteopath’s role lies in finding and treating the issues that inhibit health thus restoring balance in the body through natural, non-invasive hands on techniques some of which are listed below:

Osteopathic Massage:

  • Soft tissue therapy manipulation to relax muscles

Joint Mobilizations and Muscle Energy Techniques
  • Slow and gentle techniques to increase range of motion, flexibility, and get blood flowing to the area to increase healing

Cranial Osteopathy
  • Gentle hand pressure to manipulate the skeleton and connective tissues, especially the skull and sacrum

Visceral Osteopathy
  • Manipulation and subtle movements of the viscera and internal organs. Can be helpful for breathing difficulties, digestive issues, back pain, etc.
