you are in healing hands
Comprehensive Manual Therapy at the Vital Health Center is based on the fundamental principle that the entire body is interrelated and has an inherent ability to defend, regulate and heal itself. Through the understanding of anatomy, physiology, structure, function, and dynamic biomechanical interrelations, we rely on the quality and finesse of our palpation and senses to treat restrictions that limit the body's full potential.
Comprehensive Manual Therapy is focused on how the skeleton, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue, brain and internal organs function as a holistic union, treating the cause and not just the symptoms of the underlying dysfunction or imbalance.
The goal is to gently restore the position, mobility, and vitality in the tissues of the body and promote circulation of all its fluids, including blood, lymph, synovial fluid, digestive juices, cerebrospinal fluid, axoplasm, and all the other intra and extracellular fluids of the body. This allows better communication and regulation between the different systems of the body and helps it to return to a more natural, healthy state.
Comprehensive Manual Therapy at Vital Health Center is based on Traditional Osteopathic Manual Therapy as taught at the Canadian College of Osteopathy. Our practitioners are not licensed physicians or D.O.s and our practice of manual therapy is not meant to serve as an alternative to appropriate conventional medical treatment. Instead it is complementary to it.
Treatment can be directed toward health maintenance, helping resolve specific issues and enhancing athletic performance.
