Throughout my practice as an RMT I've learned the importance of developing healthy movement in our daily life. I care deeply about peoples' longevity, and believe that our bodies are designed with everything they need to improve themseves. No matter how out of shape or old we are, we can make simple course corrections now that allow big changes to happen later. 

I use an assortment of tools and techniques in my treaments, such as fascia work, cupping, cranial concepts and movement practices. 

I love working with wrist/hands, feet/ankles, TMJ/headaches, and everything in-between.

I love learning new things and sharing those concepts with my clients, so get ready for some weird advice and odd analogies!

Dr. MEHRDAD SADEGHI - ND

(Naturopathic Services, B12 injections, Acupuncture)

Dr. Mehrdad Sadeghi is a Canadian Board-Certified Naturopathic Doctor, and a Manitoba Naturopathic Association registered member. Before starting his practice as a naturopath in Canada, he practiced conventional medicine for over twenty years. He graduated from Carol Davila medical school in Bucharest. He is an East Europe and the Middle -East Board-Certified urologist who combined the art of conventional and alternative medicine for thousands of patients during his medical career. After moving to Canada, he participated in an associate research program at McMaster University. He then joined the Canadian college of naturopathic medicine in Toronto, which he felt aligned the best with his passion and work style. There he got his Board Certification as a Canadian naturopathic doctor. Now, complementary medicine constitutes the main part of his practice.

Dr. Sadeghi says ''As a Naturopathic Doctor, I:

> Establish the root cause of chronic illnesses

> Treat autoimmune disease using dietary and environmental changes.

> Pay special attention to treating chronic pain by using no drug regimen.

> Use foods as medicine, and don't ignore the importance of the microbiome as involving factors in many digestive and urogenital tract diseases.

> Look at the areas of the body that need assistance from a root cause level

As a Naturopathic doctor, I not only perform examinations and order diagnostic tests, similar to a general practitioner, but I also invest time in interviewing you about your diet, exercise, habits, sleep, and emotional state, in order to determine how it impacts your health.

After putting the best diagnosis for your actual status we then work together to create a personalized holistic treatment plan that will include a combination of supplementation, botanical medicine, detoxification, lifestyle recommendations, physical medicine, TCM, and methods to optimize the mind-body connection.
