Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific points on the body by penetrating the skin with tiny, metal needles. The points coincide with meridians, or energy lines, that run throughout the body encompassing all organs and body systems.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe, effective method for removing waste from the large intestine without the use of drugs or chemicals. A session involves diluting and removing toxins from the colon resulting in improved digestion and overall health.

Naturopathic Skin Treatments
Elapromed is a unique European System that provides a painless non-invasive treatment utilizing transdermalporation technology to deliver natural organic compounds to the skin.
This breakthrough technology enables our naturopathic doctors to help heal acne, rosacea, fill lines and reduce wrinkles and pigmentation.
The formal name for this process is electroporation, a molecular biology technique in which an electrical field is applied to cells in order to increase the permeability of the cell membrane, thus allowing compounds (formulations) to be introduced into the cells.
Transdermalporation is our patented variation of electroporation. This technique reorganizes the cells to open mesopores. Scientific studies have shown that, via transdermalporation, mesopores are opened for a period of time ranging from 15 seconds to a few minutes.
The diameter of the mesopores are between 40 – 250 microns, allowing Elapromed technology to deliver 70 ml of compounds up to one centimeter deep into the skin within a half hour time frame. The concentration of delivered actives into the skin is approximately 99%.
Unsurpassed in the absorption of stem cells and vital actives, Elapromed is CSA approved and has been labeled as the most advanced European system for healthy anti-aging and skin rejuvenation.
Saunas are extremely beneficial as they stimulate detoxification pathways. Some research suggests that FIR saunas promote a leaching of spirochetes from tissues and into the blood stream where the herbs are more able to kill them off. Daily saunas are highly recommended when recovering from chronic illness.
FIR saunas operate at a much lower temperature than Swedish saunas, making them more comfortable to those who have strong heat intolerance. They detoxify the tissue much more deeply and target both fat and water soluble toxins. You sweat just as much, but do not get as hot as a traditional sauna.
Food sensitivity is a delayed reaction caused by the production of IgG antibodies to specific foods. Since IgG reactions take hours or days to develop, testing is virtually the only way to determine which foods are responsible for the reaction. IgG testing tests for 96 food allergens.
Detoxifying the body is essential to maintaining good health. Ion Cleanse sessions provide a through and efficient way to detoxify the body of these toxins and wastes, in combination with healthy lifestyle choices. A series of Ion Cleanse footbath sessions will help you to maintain high energy levels and long-term wellness. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes. Your feet are placed in warm water along with the Ion Cleanse Detox array. Within seconds the Ion Cleanse Detox system begins neutralizing and removing toxins. This unique method of treatment works through a magnetic field created within the foot bath.
This magnetic charge pulls the toxins from the bottom of your feet where the pores are large allowing the toxins be released. Healthy individuals can expect to feel lighter and experience a greater feeling of well- being from each ionic foot bath session. Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, has found this therapy to be most beneficial in its capacity to cleanse the kidneys specifically. One thing is for sure, this is one of the most gentle detoxification therapies offered.
Neuro vs. Traditional Chiropractic
Currently, most conventional chiropractors focus on goals like decreasing muscular spasm, increasing range of motion and temporary reducing pain through spinal manipulation, often with the help of various therapies. These are all excellent goals and many chiropractors are good at helping people in this way.
If, however, your condition is related to neuro abnormality in the spine, then you may require someone who focuses on the area of new chiropractic.
Dr. Amanda Chan practices a unique approach called neuro-optimization.
If the amount of electricity running through the wires in your house were too high, would it be reasonable to suggest that your lights could burn out faster or your appliances be less efficient? Do you think over time that you may actually have to replace faulty major appliances as a result of this abnormal electrical current?
Similar to the wiring in your house, your body has ‘wires’ that deliver information throughout. When there is too much or too little ‘current’, neuro abnormalities can occur.
Dr. Amanda’s goal is to look for underlying neuro abnormalities which can cause many secondary conditions or symptoms.

BrainMapping and Neurofeedback Training are now offered at BioHeal Ottawa to children and adults.
Disturbances in the normal distribution of ones’ brainwaves are often consistent with known conditions. Through BrainMapping we can observe the present distribution of brainwaves – what frequencies are being over or underproduced at specific locations within the brain. Neurofeedback Training then allows one to train the brain back to a closer approximation of normal brainwave distribution, and the results are most often permanent. The training has been seen to benefit conditions such as ADD, concussion and traumatic brain injury, PTSD, fear/anxiety, insomnia and memory/cognition.
By training on a regular basis people can change the activity level of different areas of the brain. The method to do so is as simple as watching a movie or listening to music. A computer connection (through a pair of sensors) reads their brainwaves. And when the brainwaves begin to appear properly ordered the system feeds back that information to the individual. Although training utilizes operant conditioning, it is all done on an unconscious level, making the sessions incredibly easy and comfortable. Even so, it can quite literally change brain structure and function.
How does one do Neurofeedback Training?
When Neurofeedback Training is done, we have the client sit in a chair and typically watch a movie. The system puts a shaded layer over the movie image. The shading is a computer controlled program which is designed to disappear when the clients’ brainwaves organize themselves in a desired (corrective) distribution. The shade appears and disappears throughout the time you are watching the movie. However, subconsciously your brain is working hard to find a way to see the movie without the shade present because it is easier to watch in that state. It’s like a reward for the brain when the shade disappears. Over time, the brain is trained into using different parts of the brain, different levels of power over different frequencies… all subconsciously.
Magnetic field therapy works in the cell and supports the functioning of inner regulation mechanisms while enhancing the self-healing capacity. The action of magnetic field therapy may be summarized according to three main effects:
1) Increased blood circulation.
Thermographic photography shows the increase of circulation under a pulsed electromagnetic field. This leads to a better nutrition and rejuvenation of cells.
2) Improved oxygen supply.
The PEMF ensures increased oxygen extraction (deoxygenation) and enriches the tissue with oxygen. The exchange of oxygen is extremely fast in the basic tissues. Here the oxygen partial pressure rises by 400 - 800% therefore all cells breath and function better and better.
3) Enhanced Metabolism - PEMF enhances both anabolism and catabolism.
PEMF influences the ion concentration on both sides of the cell membrane. They exert a positive effect on the cellular metabolism and thus on the functioning of the complete system. They do that within a defined region of frequency and amplitude (the so called window effect). The function of the sodium-potassium pump, which is responsible for maintaining the negative potential in the cell, is also fundamentally influenced by the effect of alternating magnetic fields. The sodium potassium pump is an enzyme located on the cell membrane. It transports NA+ ions out of the cell and K+ ions into the cell. Another well-known effective mechanism is the influence on the stimulus threshold of the nerve cells through an accumulation or a removal of charge carriers. This mechanism can cause a decrease in pain over a longer period.

While each session is unique and customized to each client, a healing session can consist of energy healing, and/or journeying. Journeying (guided healing meditation) allows us to enter a trance-like state to identify core issues, restore lost pieces of the self, healing abusive or self-sabotaging parts of the self, getting direction or clarity, healing karma or wounded stories that live inside of us, finding spirit guides for support, claiming your power back, and more.
Lisa's Shamanic Energy Healing services are focused on ensuring you are healing all aspects of your health as they are all connected - Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual. When you arrive for your appointment, Lisa will begin each session by understanding the issue to be addressed. Once this is done, you will lie down on the massage table as you are, and begin the energy healing and/or journeying. Once the session is complete Lisa will speak with you about follow-up steps for integration.
In Shamanic Energy Healing (Medicine Work) we look for the non-physical root of health issues. This allows you to root out deep issues that may be keeping you stuck in poor health or a life that has lost its luster, dealing with some of the core emotional, or energetic issues underlying your health challenges.
Shamanic Healing Services include:
Lisa is trained in Quantum Shamanic Reiki. Reiki is a form of energy healing which facilitates deep relaxation. Lisa uses Reiki to help the nervous system relax and calm, creating the right environment and conditions for the body to heal itself. In this way, Reiki can help enable better sleeps, something that is often elusive for chronic illness sufferers. Similarly, we have noticed Reiki assisting those suffering with brain fog. The Quantum aspect to healing utilizes frequencies and consciousness to attune you to your healed outcome.
