Full Naturopathic Assessment $105
What is the “assessment”? The assessment consists of non-invasive pH testing, blood pressure study, and facial analysis. Acidity in your kidneys, liver, pancreas, gall bladder, and stomach influence their functionality. Through various pH tests (urinalysis and saliva), the Doctor of Naturopath learns about your absorption and digestion issues. Additionally, the Doctor of Naturopath records and observes your blood pressure, which serves as an indicator of imbalances in your body. Through facial analysis, additional information is gained to determine which of your organs are stressed. Our bodies are living, working machines, and when our organs are stressed, it can often be seen in our biggest organ—skin!
What happens in the review of the assessment? Depending on the findings, the Doctor of Naturopath makes tailored recommendations for you! This could range from simple suggestions like drinking more water and following a nutrition plan to more involved recommendations involving other modalities like supplementation, foot detox, massage, etc. Keep in mind that if you do need a specific meal plan for optimal health, our Doctor of Naturopath will coach you on how to make it adaptable to your life. If you are too busy, our Certified Chef can actually make the meals for you!

Ionic Foot Detox $35; set of 3 for $100
What is foot detox? The Ionic footbath detox is a non- invasive modality that can take the impurities, toxins, and metals out of your body through the pores of your feet. The Ionic cleanse involves soaking your feet in a saltwater bath while introducing a very small, imperceptible electrical charge. A ionic footbath will displace toxins out of the lymph, mostly through the immune system and the kidneys. However, some of these toxins will also come out in the bath water.
The detailed nature of the organic toxins that are liberated by the feet into the bath water will depend on the individual taking the bath, as well as on the various minerals that occur naturally in the starting water for the footbath.
Although it can happen that for some users, the bath water will change color during the bath, this color change is not as significant in the case of the Sea-Onic footbath.
Indeed, the surface properties of the Sea-Onic array have been carefully selected to optimize the functioning of the Sea-Onic concentrate in releasing the most toxins, independently of the color. Further, the concentrate positions the toxins to leave the body either directly into the footbath water, or into the immune system for disposal.
Here, the improvements that the Sea-Onic footbath offers will be observed by users who take regular footbaths, over a period of weeks and months, and will not show up in any special way in the footbath water color.
As toxins are pulled from your organs, the water changes colors based on the types of impurities being removed. The process takes 30 to 40 minutes.
Sauna Sessions (wet) $20 for 30min; set of 3 for $50
Creates a relaxing sense of well-being, relaxes and loosens muscles tissue, reducing daily buildup of tension and increasing muscle flexibility:
-boosts blood circulation, which helps aching and injured muscles to recover faster, because the stronger the flow of blood, the faster metabolic waste products are carried off.
-stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels, which relives pain and speeds healing of sprains and strains;
-speeds up the metabolic processes of vital organs and endocrine glands resulting in a calorie loss of between 200 and 450 in a 20 minute session.
"The sauna increases the eliminative, detoxifying and cleansing capacity of the skin by stimulation of sweat glands. A steam bath provides a mild cleansing process for the skin as certain body fluids are released through the skin. It also promotes healthy skin tone and texture due to increased blood circulation."
Sweat treatments can also be enjoyed on their own, as a workout for the cardiovascular system, a deep-cleansing treat for the body, an immune system booster, and a soothing and invigorating refreshment for the mind.
There are a few precautions to keep in mind. Because of the increase in cardiovascular activity caused by the high heat, sweat therapy is not recommended for people with heart disease or other cardiovascular problems. Individuals with high blood pressure should first consult their doctor.
In addition, the treatment is not advised for pregnant women, small children, or the elderly. Do not take a sweat treatment if you have a fever or an open wound. If you have been working out, be sure that your body has had time to cool down before exposing it to the heat of a sweat bath.
Limit treatment time to 10 to 15 minutes. Drink plenty of water of herbal tea before and after the sweat bath to replace fluids lost during the treatment. The sweat glands can secrete up to 30 grams of sweat per minute, or almost one pint per 15 minutes, so dehydration is a very real possibility, if you are not careful. Fatigue and other indications of dehydration can occur with as little as 1 to 2% loss in body weight.
The main thing to keep in mind is to enjoy the process. Do not push your body beyond its comfort level; the point is not to sweat it out the longest, but to allow your mind and body to luxuriate in this health-enhancing and invigorating miniature spa treatment.
