One clinic, many paths to wellness!

Your body is unique, so your wellness plan should be too

There is no one path to better health.

Finding the root of your discomfort can take time and experimentation, so it’s helpful to find a hub that considers your health from every angle.

“We may first meet a patient when they visit the clinic for a doctor’s appointment,” says Denise Ropp, clinic director of White Cedar Integrated Wellness. Doctors at White Cedar prescribe medicinal herbal treatments covered by MSP which work for many patients, but with integrated services, why stop there?

“A patient may decide that herbal treatments aren’t really what they want, and decide to sign up for one of our yoga classes instead, as it is with some of our clients,” Ropp says. With a range of classes and instructors teaching everything from Gentle Hatha to Deeply Restorative Yoga, there’s lots to learn about how your breath, mind and motion help relieve to chronic ailments like inflammation and soreness.

“Sometimes while we’re chatting about which class this patient’s going to take I can find out more about what brought them to White Cedar in the first place. The root of their frustration could be low back and hip pain that’s been chronic for years, so I suggest corrective kinesiology.”

Kinesiologist Kennedy Kinghorn can retrain your body to move pain free, and live independently longer. With integrative motion therapy you’ll strengthen the right muscles, improve your balance, and learn more efficient ways to move. Patients can schedule a free consultation to see if corrective kinesiology is right for you.

“For lots of clients, eight weeks later they’re free of pain that they’ve accepted for years! They’re stronger, more flexible, with energy levels through the roof,” Ropp says. “It’s that integrated approach to health that finds custom solutions. The allopathic health system is amazing — it can keep us living for a long time. But when we participate in our own health by caring for ourselves with good habits in nutrition, sleep, and movement we can go a lot further. And at White Cedar clinic we can help you get back to where you have control.”
