When seeking balance and wellness in your life, sometimes all you need or want is a single practitioner, but sometimes you may find yourself wanting to layer a complementary treatment plan across the spectrum of full-body wellness. That’s why Essential Balance Health and Wellness has worked so hard to find practitioners in all of the following disciplines:
Aromatherapy, or essential oil therapy, uses natural plant extracts to stimulate and promote health and wellness. It works by activating the limbic system, the part of the brain that is directly connected to emotion; this is why the sense of smell can be such a strong trigger for memory. Using carefully crafted blends, aromatherapy can activate relaxation and stress/anxiety relief, help encourage better sleep, relieve aching muscles, support concentration, and soothe chronic pain.
All bodies emit electromagnetic waves. Unhealthy cells and organs emit different waves than healthy ones, and this is how bioresonance can be used to diagnose and heal the body. Finding the altered - or unhealthy - waves allows the targeting and manipulation of unhealthy cells to allow the body to shift and vibrate at its natural frequency.
Holistic Mental Health
Nutritional and biochemical imbalances in the body lead to poor health. A nutritionist offers personalised recommendations to support and improve a body’s health and wellness through dietary and lifestyle recommendations. Nutritional therapy an prevent and treat diabetes, heart disease, depression, arthritis, and much more.
Massage therapy is one of the oldest healing arts. Using varying degrees of pressure and movement, a massage therapist will target stiff or painful areas in the body’s soft tissue (muscles, tendons, and ligaments) to relieve tension that is causing pain or imbalance. Regular massage therapy can lower stress, manage pain, increase immune function, boost mental health, and improve your body’s ability to engage in daily activity.
Microscopic Blood Analysis
Live Blood Analysis involves taking a single living drop of blood from the fingertip which is then placed under a powerful microscope. The image is then displayed on a screen for both the practitioner and patient to view. Blood transports oxygen, nutrients, and other life-giving agents throughout the body to maintain health. It is also the medium for detoxification, delivering cellular waste to the liver and kidneys for elimination from the body. Blood can, therefore, serve as a predictor of health and provide an indication of illness well before symptoms appear.
This method of analysis is different from the usual laboratory tests that quantify the levels of certain components in a sample of blood. Live blood screening gives an indication as to the QUALITY of an individual’s blood – an important foundation of preventative health care showing the effects that diet, lifestyle, and stress can have on our well-being. Studying the shape and function of blood cells and plasma with a microscope can show signs of poor digestion, weakened immune system, vitamin deficiencies, bowel and liver toxicity, increased cholesterol, heavy metal accumulation, presence of parasites / fungi / bacteria, and much more.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It is based on the healing power of nature and it supports and stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself. Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention using natural therapies including but not limited to: botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, lifestyle counselling and health promotion and disease prevention.

Osteopathic Manual Therapy
Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that seeks to identify the primary factors involved in a physical problem and help the body re-establish optimal functioning and improved health. This is accomplished using various manual techniques guided by osteopathic principles that are based on a thorough knowledge of human anatomy and physiology.
Physiotherapists have an in-depth knowledge of the body, and specialized clinical skills which allow the diagnosis and treatment of injury through rehabilitation. Physio is also an effective preventative treatment which promotes whole-body health. It can help with pain reduction, preventing future injuries, increasing mobility and flexibility, and much more.
As a full-body, holistic treatment centre, we also offer psychological services, or the study of mind and behaviour. We are much more than our physical bodies, and in many cases, our mental state can take a significant toll on the physical wellbeing of our bodies. Psychology appointments will allow patients to discuss and explore their mental wellbeing and find solutions that will help with the alleviation of stress, anxiety, and pain.
