The primary goal of naturopathic treatment is to address the cause of illness
rather than simply treat or suppress symptoms.

The patient is seen as a whole person and all aspects of the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions are taken into account when diagnosing and developing a treatment plan.

Virtually all chronic and most acute conditions may benefit from treatment by ND’s, and treatment is exceptionally safe for people of all ages.

The primary therapies used by ND are clinical nutrition and nutraceuticals, botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine and prevention and lifestyle counselling.

Naturopathic Doctors complete 4 years of medical school with the first two years focused on the basic sciences, similar to traditional medical school programs; the final two years are devoted to further study and practice of natural therapeutics in a clinical setting.

At Parallel Chiropractic and Wellness Centre in Calgary, Dr. Vinge utilizes other training that she has done since graduating.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)

Borrowing from acupuncture, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) uses the same energy meridians on the chest and head, but instead of needles, EFT uses a gentle tapping technique. This innovative approach begins with removing the obstructions that are presently blocking your natural healing ability. While engaging your energy meridians, positive affirmations will be voiced to help you clear the layers of emotional blockage and restore the balance between your mind and body.

One of the beautiful things about this technique is that Dr. Vinge can teach you how to perform it on yourself, anywhere and at any time.

Emotional Freedom Techniques can be used to treat numerous emotional, physical and psychological conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Addictions (Smoking, Drinking)
  • Anorexia and Bulimia
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fears and Phobias
  • Headaches
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Insomnia
  • Limiting Beliefs (Guilt, Grief, Sadness, Shame, Self-Image, Trauma)
  • Pain Management
  • Panic Attacks
  • Stress
  • Weight Loss

Mind-Body Medicine

In mind-body medicine, we focus on the various interactions that occur between the mind and body. Harnessing these powerful techniques, we can help to influence your personal growth and transformation. In this field of therapy, we employ various techniques, such as meditation, guided imagery, biofeedback and visualizations.

Therapeutic Touch is a hands-on treatment that facilitates deep relaxation, chakra balancing and relief of pain.

Dr. Robin Vinge will be your guide and catalyst, helping you through each stage of the process. Through Dr. Vinge, you will learn how to take an active, critical role in your personal health and how “intention to heal” can be your ally.

By combining your naturopathy treatments with the other services we offer at Parallel Chiropractic & Wellness Centre such as ChiropracticMassage,  or Acupuncture, we can offer you a one-stop-healing-shop to help you feel your best as quickly as possible!
