Our Offerings


As a primary caregiver, a Chiropractor can assess, diagnose and treat your injury with a combination of methods including manual therapy, joint manipulation and adjustments, acupuncture/dry-needling, Graston, active release therapy (ART), and exercise prescription. The goal of chiropractic care is to return you to your optimal level of functioning and strength.

What is an adjustment? An Adjustment is a non-invasive procedure consisting of a precise directed movement to help relieve pain and discomfort, and restore range of motion.

Active Release and soft tissue treatment allows your caregiver to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with specific patient movements. ART® is a soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.

Graston Technique® (GT) is a unique form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively and efficiently address soft tissue lesions and fascial restrictions resulting in improved patient outcomes. GT uses specially designed stainless steel instruments with unique treatment edges and angles to deliver an effective means of manual therapy. The use of GT instruments, when combined with appropriate therapeutic exercise, leads to the restoration of pain-free movement and function. Read more about Graston Technique on our blog.

Your Chiropractor will work with you to develop a treatment plan that will include exercise rehabilitation home-care. The best way to get you better, is to keep you moving!

Movement truly is medicine, whether you are looking to walk your dog or run your first marathon. As a health care practitioner and manual therapist, a physiotherapist, will help get you there. With a strong emphasis on functional movement and improvements in functional strength, you will develop a treatment plan that consists of movement that works with you and your lifestyle.

A hands on, 100% one-on-one approach is essential to making this happen – through well-guided prescribed exercises along with manual therapy, you will be one step closer to your goals and living a pain free and healthy lifestyle.

In addition to exercise rehabilitation, our physiotherapists utilize a variety of tools to add to the complete care that you receive:

Mobilizations + Manipulations
Exercise Rehabilitation
Functional Range Conditioning (FRC)
IMS / Dry Needling

Your physiotherapist will create a research based plan curated to your specific needs to reduce pain, keep you doing the things you love, and help you feel your best!

Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) are health care professionals who specialize in the manipulation of soft tissue to improve physical function and to assist with pain management. At Kinetic Living, our RMTs not only provide injury treatment and overall body maintenance, but also utilize abdominal massage, lymphatic drainage, cupping, and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation within your treatment. Our Registered Massage Therapists work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan that fits your needs and goals.

Injury treatment involves assessing and treating musculoskeletal injuries, often in collaboration with our other modality health care practitioners. Abdominal massage works to improve digestion and aid in the reduction of stress and tension within the body. Lymphatic drainage massage is a massage technique designed to help stimulate the lymphatic system and promote the flow of fluid throughout the body, which can help improve immune function and reduce swelling. Body maintenance includes techniques such as trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, and myofascial release to prevent injuries and to enhance overall physical performance.

What is cupping? Cupping is a technique derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine that is used to alleviate pain, remove toxins from the muscles and tissue, move congested and stagnant blood, loosen muscles, and encourage new blood flow to the area. Cupping can help with tight fascia and scar tissue breakdown. Read all about cupping on our blog.

What is PNF? Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, or PNF, is a stretching technique utilized to increase your range of motion and flexibility. PNF increases the length of the muscle, in turn increasing efficiency and range of motion of the muscles.

Our Registered Massage Therapists offer a range of Massage Therapy Treatment lengths including; 30 minute Spotlight Session, 60 minute Overhaul Session, 90 minute Workover Session, and 120 minute Extended Workover Session.

Osteopathy is a wholistic approach that aims to restore the body’s natural balance by improving joint mobility, muscular strength, and enhancing circulation. Our Osteopathy practitioners use a hands-on approach to identify and treat musculoskeletal issues, which can include conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and joint stiffness. Osteopathic treatment involves hands-on techniques such as manipulation, mobilization, stretching and massage to enhance circulation, reduce pain, and improve range of motion, among other benefits.

In addition to providing treatment, our Manual Osteopathic Therapist also places a strong emphasis on preventative care. We will work with you to identify factors that may contribute to musculoskeletal issues and develop strategies to mitigate these factors. Through education on proper body mechanics, ergonomics, and stress management techniques, we can help maintain overall health and wellbeing long-term.

As a Registered Acupuncturist at Kinetic Living, the primary role is to provide alternative healthcare treatments to patients seeking relief from various ailments. Registered Acupuncturists are trained health care professionals who specialize in the practice of acupuncture, a Traditional Chinese Medicine practice that is used to balance the body’s energy, improve overall health, and manage chronic pain. Their expertise also extends to additional medical modalities, such as cupping and moxibustion.

Acupuncture has numerous benefits for the body, including reducing stress levels, pain relief, improving sleep, and increasing energy levels. Acupuncture therapy is also used to treat various medical conditions such as chronic pain, digestive disorders, respiratory illnesses, menstrual issues, and fertility problems.

Cupping is another popular Traditional Chinese Medicine practice that involves placing heated cups on the skin to create suction. Cupping can help with tight fascia and scar tissue breakdown. Read all about cupping on our blog.

Also know as dry needling, IMS is a dynamic, hands-on treatment where the health care practitioner continually works to stimulate the trigger points within the affected muscle to elicit a ‘twitch’ response. Once this response occurs, the muscle effectively is released from its strained or contracted state. You will notice an immediate relief of pain, tension and a significant improvement of range of motion.

IMS is effective to treat:

  • Low back Pain
  • Hamstring strain
  • Hip tightness
  • Runners Knee
  • Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome
  • Tennis or Golfers Elbow
  • Rotator Cuff/ Shoulder Strain
  • Neck Pain and Tightness
