I wanted to introduce myself and express how excited I am to be working alongside Dr. Danielle Gilas. I am here to help you along your health and wellness journey, and am honoured that you have chosen our clinic as your safe healing haven.
I would like to share some of the offerings that I use to help wonderful patients like you live their best life. I have over 20 years of experience in the healing arts and am in constant awe of the human body and resilience of the human spirit. The commitment to your health is the reason why I am here. It is my absolute pleasure to see patients progress from pain and stress filled lives to flexible, well-adapted, peaceful days.
I have been a dancer my entire life, so I know the importance of having a healthy spine and happy mind. I offer a variety of modalities and techniques that I have trained in and customize for each patient. I am always willing to learn more and do what it takes to help you feel better. I use traditional hands-on chiropractic care with a gentle approach. I also use low-force techniques such as Network Spinal and the Activator instrument to ensure that your spine is realigned with specific and precise adjustments. When we create proper alignment and good posture of your body, it facilitates optimal functioning of your nervous system.
With the exposure of stressors from everyday life, spinal and muscular imbalances develop and create tension and dysfunction in your body. With manual chiropractic care and soft tissue mobilization, the joints and muscles are released and realigned so that integrity in movement and mobility is restored. Network Spinal is a light touch chiropractic technique using breath and body awareness. The existing tension created by your body is used as fuel to shift patterns and provide lasting changes in the nervous system. Soft, precise touch to your spine helps cue the brain to unwind spinal cord tension and create new wellness promoting strategies. The result is improved movement of the breath and decreased overall tension in the muscles and spinal vertebrae. Dr. Danielle and I use similar methods and I am especially interested in taking care of women and their babies/children, as chiropractic can deliver such a positive impact to developing spines. I always strive to use a combination of chiropractic techniques that have shown clinical effectiveness when I care for you.
In addition, I use manual muscle testing and incorporate the healing properties of essential oils to help harmonize imbalances in your system. I am certified in yoga, meditation and breathing techniques and often will share easy stretching and strengthening exercises for you to do to help improve your posture and overall sense of wellbeing. I integrate Ayurvedic principles with an understanding that each of us is made up of a unique body constitution of the earth’s natural elements, namely, water, earth, space, air, and fire. Our health depends upon balancing our individual natural state of being. Using ayurvedic lifestyle modifications is a great way to understand how to live simply in harmony with your environment. It is important for me to meet you where you are in your healing process, and to provide recommendations that I feel you can actually slip into your daily routine.
A special offering that I have been working on recently is Scientific Hand Analysis. It is a life coaching tool for self-discovery and allows us to uncover your life purpose. Through a series of hand readings, we can reveal your gifts and talents as well as your ultimate purpose and lessons, in order to help you live in mastery of your life. The lines in your hands mimic the neural pathways in your brain and can give us great insight into the experience you have in life. Scientific Hand Analysis has been an absolute game changer in my life and it can be for yours too!
I hope that this has helped you get to know me a little better and the services that I am providing at Vivid Health. If you have questions about any of my offerings, feel free to schedule a Complimentary Chiropractic Chat with me. I look forward to working with you soon. :)
