We at Atinama believe in a Holistic approach to Well-Being. Our therapists are trained in a number of alternative therapeutic modalities to help you attain optimum health and wellness.
Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is a 3000 year old healthcare system. Thin, sterile needles are inserted in acupuncture points on energy channels, called meridians. Illness arises due to an imbalance of energy (Qi) flow. Acupuncture stimulates the balance and flow of energy (Qi) which is necessary for maintaining good health. Acupuncture treats the symptoms and the root cause of a client's illness.

PEMF - Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy
Health Canada Approved
Book with Ara on Wednesdays & Sundays
Our bodies are electric and our cells need energy to function. Stress, lack of proper nutrition, sleep disturbances, dehydration, oxidative stress and ageing increase our cells’ need for energy.
Our PEMF technology recharges our batteries by increasing the ATP production in our cells. ATP is the energy that drives all of our biological processes from immunity, respiration, circulation and organ function to movement. PEMF helps with inflammation and swelling by restoring the sodium and potassium exchange within our cells. This leads to pain reduction and increased wound and bone healing.... and all you have to do is lay on this mat and relax.
Benefits of PEMF Therapy
* Stronger bones
* Pain relief
* Better sleep
* Increased energy
* Improved oxygenation and micro-circulation
* Enhanced nutrient absorption
* Improved immunity and lymphatic circulation
* Stress reduction
* Nerve and tissue regeneration
* Increased blood flow and nitric oxide production (enhanced sex life!)
* Reduced cellular oxidative stress (anti-ageing)

PEMF with Audio-visual Brainwave Entrainment
During your PEMF session, we will provide audio-visual brainwave entrainment. This has been proven helpful for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), stress reduction, sleep, improved mood, mental sharpness and balance (reduced risk of falling) in seniors, and reduced worry along with improvements in concentration and memory in college students.
You will first begin to notice subtle changes to your personal quantum field. These may include increased energy, clarity of thought, reduced muscle tension, a general feeling of wellbeing and better sleep.
After several sessions, your body begins to detox and eliminate harmful waste materials through urine and bowel movements. Your cells can then be nourished with oxygen, minerals and vitamins. Stem cells begin to regenerate and repair damaged organs.
The immune system is activated to fight viruses and harmful bacteria that are often the cause of inflammation. Blood circulation is increased throughout the entire body, which improves skin complexion for a more youthful appearance.

CRYSTAL CHAKRA BALANCING
This Shamanic energy technique uses crystals as a catalyst to clear emotional blocks from the subtle energy-fields of the body. It brings clarity by allowing you greater access to your intuition. After this therapy people often say they feel lighter, dream more vividly, and have greater dream-recall. It is recommended to schedule this therapy on or around the Full Moon.
Having Reiki is like making an appointment with your higher self and committing to letting go of the clutter of the mind so that you can perceive what is always there beyond your reach.
