Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of primary healthcare that includes acupuncture, cupping, moxabustion, Chinese herbal medicine, remedial massage, exercise, breathing therapy, and diet/ lifestyle advice. It has an uninterrupted history of development in China, and other parts of East Asia dating back thousands of years. TCM takes a holistic approach in understanding normal function and disease processes while also focusing on the prevention of illness as much as the treatment. By paying particular attention not only to the presenting condition, but also to the patient’s medical history, general constitution, pulse, and tongue, Dr. Sara Mayne is able to create a health regiment to the patient’s needs.

Registered Massage Therapy

Our registered massage therapists (RMT) offer a variety of different methods of massage. Karen Wolfram, RMT specializes in RAPID NeuroFascial Reset, a sofr tissue, movement based technique and addresses the central nervous role in lessening tensions and restrictions within tendons, muscles, ligaments, nerves, and fascia. Our therapists are experienced in prenatal massage, cupping, and hot stone therapy. Our wonderful RMTs are available Monday- Friday and have a variety of appointment times to sit your needs.

Custom Orthotics

Our clinic uses the Footmaxx Custom Orthotic gait analysis system to evaluate patient gait and orthotic necessity. This is a great way to evaluate your feet as it evaluates where your feet need support while you are weight-bearing. Dr. Brehon also does a thorough foot analysis to ensure you are getting the support you need. All orthotics are custom made for each individual’s feet! They are a passive way to help your feet, knees and back feel more comfortable throughout the day. Most insurance companies cover orthotics, so check your coverage and get some additional support for your feet today!


Physiotherapists are primary health care professionals with a significant role in health promotion and treatment of injury and disease.Their in-depth knowledge of the body and how it works paired with hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat symptoms of illness, injury or disability, allow physiotherapists to give well-rounded care to enable you to function at the best of your ability.

Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment that works by slowly stretching the spine, taking pressure off of compressed discs and vertebrae by creating a negative pressure in the disc area, and creating space around irritated nerves. This can greatly reduce pain in the low back or neck, or pain that radiates down the arms or legs. Initially thought to stretch the spine and allow herniated disc material to move back into the center of the disc, more research has shown that perhaps the more beneficial part of this particular treatment is that it works with the body’s imbibition mechanism. Because a disc has poor blood flow, a natural pump-like process called imbibition allows the body to bring oxygen and nutrients to the disc while removing metabolic waste products. This process helps the disc to rehydrate and can promote retraction of bulging and herniated disc material. Decompression sessions typically last between 20 and 40 minutes. The patient lies down on a comfortable treatment table and is secured by upper and lower harnesses. During this time the patient gets to relax! We encourage our clients to simply close their eyes and have a nap, or bring some music to listen to, as their individualized neck or low back decompression program works through a series of gentle pull-and-relax cycles. Treatment duration and frequency will depend on the severity and chronicity of the issue, and could require anywhere from 6-20 treatments. Spinal decompression is a treatment option for herniated discs (greater than 4 weeks old), facet syndrome, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves in the neck and lower back, and sciatica. Pregnant women, and people with failed low back surgeries, severe osteoporosis, severe spondylolisthesis, and artificial discs are NOT good candidates for this type of treatment. It is important that we perform an assessment and review of any prior diagnostic imaging reports (X-ray, CT, MRI) prior to your decompression treatment to ensure this treatment may be safe and effective for your health concern.


Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that resets and recharges the body through energy healing. As energy may fester in the body where there has once been physical or even emotional pain, these energy blocks can potentially cause illness. By using a hands-on technique, Rhonda Cann is able to remove these blocks and realign the energy fields. Reiki aims to help the flow of energy and to aid relaxation, assist the body’s natural healing process, and develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being. Rhonda can assist people of all ages as well as throughout pregnancy to find their center of balance in their everyday lives.


It has been reported that about 90% of people do not get the recommended amount of important nutrients from food alone. Supplementation is intended to bridge this nutritional gap, so we are able to maintain optimal health. In many ways, supplements are to humans what fertilizer is to plants. If the plant has adequate amounts of water and sunlight, it will grow. If the plant is nourished with fertilizer, the plant will thrive. At the clinic we carry a variety of supplements, and essential oils to ensure patients are able to enhance their current health regimen. Metagenics for instance, supports healthy living in many ways including weight loss, nutrition, stress-relief, sports recovery, and deficiencies. Uses of Metagenics products range from supporting good health and vitality to playing a role in treating chronic diseases and life-disrupting issues like stress.
