Our Services

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is a healthcare approach that takes a holistic view of the body, recognizing that it is a complex system of interconnected parts that work together to maintain overall health and wellness. Rather than simply treating symptoms, chiropractors aim to identify and address underlying causes of health issues, taking into account factors such as lifestyle, diet, and emotional well-being.

Chiropractors believe that the body has an innate ability to heal itself, that by promoting balance and harmony within the body, individuals can achieve optimal health and well-being. They use a variety of techniques, including manual manipulation, to help alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote overall wellness.

Prenatal, Postnatal & Pediatric Care

Pregnant and postnatal women, as well as children, greatly benefit from chiropractic care. Pregnancy significantly changes a woman's body, affecting gait, balance, and placing stress on the spine, which can lead to discomfort. Chiropractic care helps ensure the body remains balanced, with a relaxed and open pelvis, giving the growing baby the space needed to develop. The Webster Technique, a specialized analysis and adjustment for expecting mothers, aims to reduce pelvic pressure and improve function. After childbirth, chiropractic care aids mothers in recovering and adapting to this new phase.


Physiotherapy at Nourish is a primary healthcare service designed to help you recover from injuries or illnesses and enhance your overall function. Our approach prioritizes patient-centered care, considering all aspects of your life, such as work, hobbies, goals, and stressors. We believe in fostering collaboration between therapist and client, which is why we schedule ample time for one-on-one assessments and treatments. Our physiotherapist draws on extensive post-graduate training, clinical experience, and evidence-based practices to offer a biopsychosocial and integrative model of care.
