Acupuncture is a centuries-old Chinese medical technique, involving the careful insertion of small needles along selected points on the body, used to treat imbalances and obstructions in various organ systems. In traditional Chinese medicine theory, pathologies are the result of relative deficiency or excess in the body – which you may have heard referred to as the inequity between the yin and yang. The goal of Acupuncture is to stimulate the restoration of balance in the body, resulting in organs that function optimally and in harmony with all other body systems.

Many extended health plans will cover acupuncture with either a Registered Acupuncturist or Naturopathic Doctor. Please check with your extended health provider for details.

At AIM, we offer Somatic Therapy Bodywork sessions that support recovery and healing from the effects of chronic and traumatic stress. “Somatic” refers to a body based or "bottoms up" treatment focus. Working with your body and nervous system directly to improve capacity within ourselves and regulation.

Sessions include:

SOMATIC EXPERIENCING® THERAPY, a body focused modality for those stuck in vigilance or fight, flight and freeze. With a focus on improving our nervous system regulation as we recover from chronic stress, early developmental trauma and shock trauma such as medical interventions, motor vehicle accidents, falls and injuries, attacks, multiple traumatic events, sudden life changes including loss and the pandemic.

SOMATIC TOUCH PRACTICE BODYWORK helps support improved regulation from chronic and traumatic stress and the impact that this has on us metabolically and within our hormone system. Somatic Touch can address the foundations in our regulation that are so often missing and that interrupt our access to life energy. This story is often told through our body and the symptoms we experience as a consequence to the impacts of early developmental and intergenerational trauma which includes neo- natal, birth, birthing related events, child hood surgeries, felt sense of shame, guilt and grief overshadowing our days.

Sessions may include trauma informed lymphatic work for surgical and traumatic events that have impacted one’s fluid matrix or require specific integration work on these systems.


Functional Blood Analysis & Nutritional Consultation

Zuzana Friedman, RHN offers both nutritional consultations & functional blood analysis.


Custom Orthotics

At AIM we start with a basic foot & gait assessment to see if custom orthotics can benefit you. In this session we use GaitScan Technology to take a 3D image of your foot to set the design for your custom orthotics. The physician then goes over your case with a Podiatrist from The Orthotic Group, after which your pair of custom orthotics will be made. Please expect 2-4 weeks for all orthotics.
