Welcome to Spine Align Chiropractic Centre in Barrhaven
The door to better health
In addition to Chiropractic Adjustments, Acupuncture, Custom Orthotics, and Registered Massage Therapy, Spine Align Chiropractic Centre in Barrhaven is now offering Non-Registered Massage Therapy, Foot Reflexology and Therapeutic Head Massage services.
Each of these treatments provides multiple health and wellness benefits, some of which the average person may not know! Let’s see how familiar you are with the following treatments and their benefits.
Foot Reflexology is based on the principal that there are reflex points in the feet which correspond via nerve pathways of the central nervous system (Western Medicine) and/or meridians (Eastern Medicine) to every gland, part, organ and system of the body. Through systematic pressure and stimulation of these reflexes, the body is encouraged to return to its natural function. In the process, endorphins (natural painkillers) are released, relaxation of the nervous system occurs, and increased blood and lymphatic circulation results in a rise in oxygen and immune levels, all of which helps to restore balance and wellness to the body.
Some of the specific benefits attributed to Foot Reflexology include:
⦁ Increased immunity
⦁ Improved energy
⦁ Reduced Stress and Anxiety
⦁ Pain Relief
⦁ Circulation Stimulation and
⦁ Reduced Blood Pressure
The Foot Reflexology practices at Spine Align Chiropractic Centre are based on the protocols prescribed by the Reflexology Association of Canada (RAC). Our practitioner is a Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist. The RAC Foot Map is used to guide acupressure of the reflex points which correspond to the whole body

A Foot Reflexology Treatment includes a soothing foot soak to cleanse and relax the feet followed by a combination of pressure and stimulation of the reflex points, as well as lower leg and foot massage.
