Naturopathic medicine is a medicine that treats the underlying cause of disease; it is the art and science of supporting the natural healing process of the patient through the removal of any obstacles to these processes. It is the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of physical, mental, and emotional conditions; and it is the promotion of well-being using therapeutics that support or enhance a patient's overall health.
Dr. Jennifer Brix is a B.C licensed naturopathic physician, providing primary care as a general practitioner in complementary medicine. She can provide a full range of diagnostic test, therapies, and prescription medications and treats all health concerns for all ages from acute to chronic and physical to psychological. It is the approach, philosophy and training of Dr. Brix that sets her apart from practitioners in other forms of health care
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? The team at BRIX can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
