Dr. George Seim 

Chiropractor

Dr. George Seim has been in health care since 1967 when he graduated from the Canadian College of Massage.

Wanting a deeper understanding of the workings of the body he graduated from Canadian Chiropractic Memorial College in 1977.
Ever striving for the latest and best treatment methods, he has continually taken post graduate courses, and pursued many other areas of healing including Acupuncture, Nutrition and Total Body Modification, but to name a few.

Activator Methods has been found to be the most gentle and effective treatment for back problems, headaches and neck challenges, especially when combined with Laser. Graston (soft tissue) works best on extremities (shoulder, arm and hand as well as hip, knee and foot problems), whether of recent or long standing origin.

Dr. George’s extensive experience, combined with his dedication to helping both young and older persons live healthy lives make him a very valuable asset to our health care team.

Reiki

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to balance the subtle energies within our bodies. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

The Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed; this in turn, allows the body to function in a more holistic manner. It is thought that if ones life force energy is low, then it is not uncommon to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

Benefits of Reiki may include:

• Increased energy levels
• Increased mental clarity
• A sense of calm or balance
• Regulating and stabilizing emotions
• Clearing & balancing of chakras
• Helps to Deal with Suppressed or Blocked Emotions & Feelings
• A Reduction of Stress, Tension, Anxiety, & General Emotional Distress
