OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy is a manual approach whose objective is to restore the functionality of the tissues of the human body in order to optimize its self-regulation capacity. This practice is based on in-depth knowledge of the health sciences and interactions specific to the balance of the body. Using fine and precise palpation, through a complete and comprehensive osteopathic assessment, the osteopath makes it possible to investigate the cause of one's restrictions of mobility. Each osteopathic encounter is specific and individualized. The goal is to promote overall health and well-being through improved mobility. The osteopathic approach is complementary to conventional approaches.

CONSULTATION LACTATION

We are fortunate to have on-staff an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) whose sole focus is on human lactation and infant feeding. Mothers struggling with breastfeeding problems, such as latching difficulties, painful nursing or low milk production can book a lactation consultation where an IBCLC will take a thorough history, perform an examination on mom and baby and observe feeding. The Lactation Consultant will then form an assessment, develop a care plan, and provide follow-up as necessary. At Centre de Santé Pelvienne we pride ourselves on our interdisciplinary approach and if needed the IBCLC will collaborate with other members of our health care team to ensure comprehensive care. Reasons for Consultation: Prenatal counseling about the factors and practices that promote successful breastfeeding and lactation Induction of lactation for adoption or surrogacy Postpartum issues related to: o Nipple or breast pain o Tongue and lip tie o Inadequate milk transfer or supply o Supplementation at the breast o Low weight gain o Managing overabundant production and overactive letdown reflex o Engorgement, recurrent obstructed milk ducts and/or mastitis o Reflux o Starting solids o Weaning o Milk expression and storage o Breastfeeding and lactation after returning to work o Feeding twins or triplets, a premature or sick infant, or infants in special medical situations.

ACUPUNCTURE

Currently practiced worldwide, acupuncture has existed for 5000 years. It is an energy medicine that takes the entire individual into account, including both their strengths and their weaknesses. Acupuncture assumes the existence of a vital energy that circulates throughout the body. This energy is called “Qi.” A disturbance in the circulation of “Qi” can cause pain or organ dysfunction that eventually leads to illness. Treatment The goal of treatment is to re-establish normal energy circulation by inserting very fine needles into specific points on the body. The acupuncturist considers not only the symptoms but also the initial cause of the energy imbalance and treats the problem at the source. What Kinds of Problems Respond Well to Acupuncture? General Problems: Fatigue, stress, anxiety, headaches, migraines, insomnia, jet lag, etc. Digestive Problems: Lack of appetite, slow digestions, bloating, colic, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, Crohn’s disease, etc. Respiratory Problems: Asthma, sinusitis, allergies, cold, rhinitis, bronchitis, laryngitis, cough, etc. Endocrinal Problems: Menopause, hot flashes, profuse or nocturnal sweating, etc. Circulatory Problems: Hemorrhoids, chills, oedema, palpitations, etc. Gynecological Problems: Sterility, menstrual problems, pre-menstrual syndrome, endometriosis, cysts, etc. Skin Problems: Eczema, shingles, hives, psoriasis, etc. Spasms, some paralysis, palsy, etc. Auditory Problems: earache, buzzing, Meniere’s syndrome, vertigo, labrynthitis, etc. Pain: rheumatism, lumbago, sciatica, stiff neck, neuralgia, back and neck pain tendonitis, bursitis, carpel tunnel, sprain, etc. Pregnancy: nausea, vomiting, back pain, lactation problems, lack of energy, etc.
