Have Your Say – Please!

At the end of the year I like to look back at what I did well, what I could have done better and what my goals are for the next year. On a personal level, I did well as a parent and I did well moving our clinic to a better space. What I could have done better is that my fitness level probably suffered a bit from being too busy with everything else and I could do better with my work/life/parent balance. In the coming year I hope to continue to evolve as a parent, a naturopathic doctor and clinic director and like everyone else improve my fitness level by being more active. Now I would like to ask you – What can I do better? What can our clinic do better? What more can we offer you in terms of service? What did you like/didn’t like about our service? If you haven’t been to our clinic, why not? If you’ve been to another clinic what did you like/dislike about that experience? What goals can we set for ourselves at Forces of Nature Wellness this year?

Acupuncture for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A recent study determined that short-term acupuncture treatment may result in long-term improvement in mild-to-moderate idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome.  Acupuncture treatment can be considered as an alternative therapy to other conservative treatments for those who do not opt for early surgical decompression.
