Our happy Clients
Dr. Brehon has been very helpful with my chronic back pain and shoulder injuries, as well as extremely supportive and helpful through my pregnancy with twins. She is a wonderful caring person, and a very talented practitioner.
They say that people come into your life for a reason; Dr. Kristi Brehon has been just that person. While going out for a daily walk with my neighbor, I happened to mention to her that I was in need of a really good Chiropractor. I have been really hard on my body for several years and was feeling really unbalanced in mind and body. My neighbor was in a motor vehicle accident and ranted and raved about how much better her body was feeling after receiving chiropractic care form Kristi. She was seeing nothing but positive results and encouraged me to see her. The first thing I noticed when I walked into Kristi’s office was her warm, compassionate nature and her ability to listen to what my needs were. She was very gentle in her approach, and I felt that she really understood what was going on for me. I highly recommend Dr. Kristi Brehon to anyone who is seeking a more relaxed greater feeling of mobility in their body. I have received these wonderful benefits and am so grateful to Kristi as a result. As an added bonus, I am feeling more emotionally balanced and the depression I have been feeling for sometime has lifted. I sincerely hope that more people will experience the remarkable benefits that I have received from Kristi. Many blessings and infinite gratitude.
Qualified & passionate about what we do
When many people seek our care, they have one goal: pain relief. During this initial stage of intensive care, we uncover the underlying cause of the health problem, suggest a plan to produce the fastest results possible and discuss the value of post-symptomatic wellness care.
We encourage our patients to achieve the highest levels of health they can. Our goal is to communicate the value of ongoing chiropractic care, and our desire is to see our patients abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favor of the emerging wellness model.
Therapeutic Massage is a healing art that can greatly aid the healing process. Muscles respond quickly to proper massage and the nervous system calms. Massage therapy manipulates the soft tissues of the body releasing natural endorphins that ease both the muscular and mental stress by breaking the pain cycle. The history of massage and healing touch is long and complex, with more than 75 different types of massage and bodywork, a generic term used to describe massage and its various forms. Archaeological and historical evidence indicates that massage and healing touch have been practiced for thousands of years in all regions of the globe. In modern health care, massage has taken on an important role. It has been shown to be beneficial to reduce stress, enhance blood circulation, decrease pain, promote sleep, reduce swelling, enhance relaxation, and increase oxygen capacity of the blood. Massage has also been recognized as a non-drug treatment for cancer and postoperative pain.
Our mission is to see people live a healthier, happier lifestyle from birth through adulthood, through gentle care and education of each and every person in our care.
Health starts from day 1 and is a continuous process; therefore, each and every person needs proper preventative maintenance care for his or her body – starting from birth!
Our strategy is to go against the grain of thinking that you should only have care when you are unwell. We want to see you when you are well, and we also want to encourage you through the times that you are unwell. By keeping your body at its peak functioning level, we can help you heal faster in the times when your body is faced with a challenge.
Services we offer
Our family care begins with the newborn, and ends with the elderly. Dr. Brehon Ellice is certified in Webster’s technique – a method of adjustment and stretching that releases joint restriction of the uterus in pregnant women, allowing proper motion of the pelvis, which greatly benefits the growing fetus.
Pediatric care begins with the newborn. It is never to soon to begin receiving adjustments. Adjustments are extremely gentle and necessary after the birth process and through each phase of growth for your child to ensure proper development of the nervous system.
Adult care – whether you are hard on your body because of your work commitments, family commitments or leisure activities, adjustments can help your body be able to keep up with the demands of everyday life.
Have you been in a motor vehicle accident? Dr. Brehon Ellice offers post-MVA care. It is important for all occupants of the vehicle to get assessed by their chiropractor within 10 days of the accident. Dr. Brehon will work directly with your insurance company to make sure you are getting the proper care following your accident. Dr. Brehon Ellice does NOT currently work with Worker’s Compensation Board claims.
Orthotics are insoles that are made specifically to support and enhance proper foot function of your foot. Custom orthotics are designed to be used as a passive way to correct foot issues and improve function. Most insurance companies provide coverage for custom orthotics, as they are a great way to combat foot, knee and back pain. Dr. Brehon creates your custom orthotics by using gait analysis technology to see where the pressure points are in each foot during each portion of the gait phase. This way, the orthotics can be the most beneficial - supporting your feet when you are actually on your feet! During your orthotic assessment, Dr. Brehon will discuss the benefits of orthotics, common issues that orthotics can help, do a gait analysis and discuss what types of changes can be made to the orthotic to make it perfectly custom made to your feet.
