ELDOA 

Created by a world-renowned Osteopath Dr Guy Voyer.

The ELDOA method is a series of postures that create maximal decompression at specifically targeted joint areas by creating lines of pull on the myofascial system.  It uses the strength of your own muscles against the tension of your fascia to release areas of tension and strengthen areas of weakness and is a perfect companion to all prehab, training, rehab and recovery.

You will notice an immediate response in your body.  You will stand taller, breathe easier, feel relaxed & strong simultaneously.  Your spine will be closer to its proper alignment and your sense of body movement in space will be more attuned. You won't know if you're doing it right, but it will feel so good you'll crave the effects time & time again.

Through precise micro-movements intended for your unique body, the ELDOA effectively strengthens, increases body awareness, supports a return to a dynamic posture, helps reduce compressive pain, and is highly effective! The movements are extremely low impact and can be performed by everyone -including children!

 

DIABETES FITNESS

 

MINDFUL MOVEMENT

 

FREE TRIAL CLASSES (ALL WELLNESS)

If you're living with diabetes—especially type 2 diabetes—regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do to lower your blood sugar. Increased physical activity can work just as effectively as some medications, with fewer side effects. If you're at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, regular exercise can help delay or even prevent diabetes from developing. In this program, we provide 20 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity aerobic exercises and 20 minutes of resistance exercises, followed by 5 minutes of stretching and cool-down.

This program will provide low impact movements using a combination of Tai Chi and Qigong techniques.

Each class will offer balance, coordination and breathing exercises to help strengthen your immune system by stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system.  

 

STRETCH & STRENGTH FOR BACK HEALTH

There is a common misconception that exercise should be avoided when you are experiencing back pain. Understandably, you are reluctant to exercise out of the fear that any exercises or stretching will aggravate the existing back pain. However, exercise is a vital part of managing back pain and strengthening the weak muscles in the back and the core.

Our therapeutic exercise program will help you move safely and condition your body gradually so you can live pain-free. Did you know that effective and safe exercise routines can help distribute nutrients into the disc space, joints, and soft tissues in the back? A consistent workout program designed by our professional movement specialist will help improve your mobility and strength, minimize recurrence, and reduces the severity and duration of possible future episodes of back pain.
