Stress Reduction Is The Goal

Reduce the effects of negative stress on your body and mind, and you will experience profound changes to your overall health and mindset. How does calm feel to you?

Learn to identify your stress triggers and how they affect your body. Develop strategies to manage your body’s stress response, and you will begin to feel alive, in control, and calm again. Everyone experiences stress differently, but internally the physiological and biochemical impact of stress is expressed in similar ways. We feel muscle tension and pain, anxiousness and confusion, our breathing becomes shallow, and our stress hormones become elevated.

I woke up with a neck kink and major back pain. Pure Health is a miracle worker and has decreased my pain and allowed me to move again. Thank you!

Jennifer C - Toronto, ON

Movement

Blood is the life force that allows our organs to work, brain to function, and lungs to help us breathe. Without movement, blood flow would stagnate.

What’s the only real anatomy lesson you need to survive? Our hearts are a magnificent muscle that continuously pump out a blast of awesome oxygen-filled blood to quench the thirst of all our muscles, organs and brain. Once blood leaves the heart and cascades down to our toes, it needs help climbing back up for a refill of O2. How does this happen? A combination of vascular pressure, venous levers, and the forceful pump of our muscles working hard - movement provides that O2 refill. Physical movement isn\'t just important for athletes; it\'s essential for everyone to keep blood oxygen levels high and and stress levels low. So stop sitting, and get moving!

Acupressure

This 5000-year-old method of healing to release tension and reduce pain is just as useful today as it was all those years ago. Get your chi moving.

What is “chi” anyway? Chi refers to the flow of energy within our body. It flows along meridians or pathways which connect acupressure points to one another and to the tissue and organs of the body. The meridians are seen as the “master communication system of universal life energy.” During a treatment the therapist will apply pressure along different yet specific points to create optimal energy flow to the area of concern. Feel pressure and pain melt away.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness techniques are a set of useful mental skills that can build capacity through the neuroplasticity of the brain’s networks. When we practice mindfulness, we help train the neural attention networks which enhance focus, clarity, and attention.

Internationally, research is being done on the effects of mindfulness techniques on the body. These techniques have a resoundingly positive impact on our mental, emotional, and physical health. Mindfulness is quickly becoming the foundation of many physical and psychological therapies impacting recovery of anxiety, stress, physical injury and overall health. As neuroscience and medicine continue to research and image the brain, we are learning the intricacies of cognition, learning, and emotion. Building new synapses and improving how neural connections travel from both the brain to body and body to brain impacts our learning, recovery from injury and overall state of health and well-being.

BIE (BioEnergetics)

A non-invasive modality that stimulates acupuncture points to decrease biochemical intolerances and balance the body. The GSR-120 unit is used to help create homeostatic balance in the body.

BIE is a simple technology that is used to focus energy on specific meridians without the use of drugs or needles. Your body’s internal balance is crucial for optimum daily functioning. Stress, poor diet, and lack of exercise all disrupt this balance. Our bodies may be triggered into the stress response through our diet, allergens, or reactions to daily medications or antibiotics. BIE sessions help your body adapt and assimilate to these stressors.
