Dietitians are essential members of the health team who create strategies to enable clients to achieve their food and nutrition related goals using evidence – based practice. They assess the nutritional needs of patients, plan appropriate nutrition interventions and provide nutrition education for patients and their families. Nutrition and Dietetics actively works with Food Services to ensure the provision of a high quality food and nutrition service for patients.
Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific sites (acupuncture points) along the body’s meridians to clear energy blockages and encourage the normal flow of qi through the individual. The practitioner may also stimulate the acupuncture points using other methods including cupping and massage, in order to re-establish the flow of qi.

Myotherapists are highly skilled in the use of massage to reduce tension and pain in the body’s muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia. Our therapists are highly skilled in the use of additional instrumental methods in order to restore normal function to the musculoskeletal system. These can include: joint taping, dry needling, cupping, thermal therapies (the use of heat and cold) and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS).
Remedial massage therapists on the other hand work exclusively with a variety of manipulative massage techniques to eliminate muscular tension and aid relaxation. Practitioners generally only make use of their hands, sometimes with the aid of massage oils.
