Vibroacoustic Therapy

Dr. Lee Bartel’s TEDx talk at Collingwood, Ontario gives an excellent overview of the current state of vibroacoustic medical research. Dr. Bartel explains how scientifically developed sound played through Vibroacoustic devices helps reduces the symptoms of Fibromyalgia pain, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Depression, and increase blood flow. The Sound Oasis Vibroacoustic Therapy System plays back nature, music and sleep therapy sounds with Delta, Alpha or Theta brainwaves to coax your brain to match these frequencies, thus entering states of sleep, relaxation or renewal. Vibroacoustic Therapy provides massage therapy to muscles and joints that hand/mechanical massage can not reach.

Avoid Injury This Spring

Spring means two things: yard work and stiff, sore muscles. Stretching to prepare muscles for strenuous activities that have not been done since fall is very important. Simple things like doing arm circles, shrugging your shoulders, and touching your toes should be done before and after activity. If you do overexert and your neck, shoulder, arm, or back pain is not going away within a week, there are natural alternatives that can help. Options such as designed nutritional formulations, Biofeedback, or NIR Therapy will reduce inflammation and stimulate muscle repair to help you recover quickly and get back to enjoying spring.

The Four Horsemen of Life

What does it mean to live in the fullness of your masculine heart? Well. this month we dive into Jungian work as we explore four archetypes of the masculine. Based on the work by Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette in their seminal book King, Warrior, Magician, Lover we explore what the mature masculine looks, feels and acts like. We do so because once we harness the energy that these four horsemen bring into our lives, we are then able to raise the level we show up as fathers, husbands, brothers and leaders. Join us on April 12th and 26th to learn where you are out of alignment with these powerful archetypes.

Kiss Your Bad Breath Goodbye

Everyone gets bad breath from time to time – but bad breath that doesn’t go away could mean you have an oral health issue. The most common cause of bad breath is poor oral hygiene, other causes can include dry mouth, and certain medications. When you don’t brush your natural teeth and/or dentures regularly, this can cause plaque and tartar to form on your teeth(both natural and false). If you’re struggling with bad breath that doesn’t go away, it’s important to see your denturist. They will be able to evaluate your oral health and determine what steps to take next.
