To our valued friends and clients,

We have been feeling very blessed to be able to return to work and continue serving this community that we love. Thank you for your continued support during these interesting times!

There has been a very high demand at the office for appointments for new patients, or for people who have not received care with us previously. We are not accepting new patients for massage therapy at this time, and there is a 2-3 week wait time for an Initial Appointment with our chiropractors. We are not currently accepting online booking for New Patients, and ask that they please call the office to schedule an appointment.

We are committed to following guidelines and safety procedures as outlined by our governing bodies, and by the Provincial Health Officer. Unfortunately, this means limiting the number of people in the office and spacing between appointments to allow for proper cleaning and social distancing measures. For these reasons, appointment times for new patients in our office are limited.

We apologize for this inconvenience, and will continue to do everything in our power to adapt to these changes, and offer care to those in need, as safely and effectively as possible.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any concerns or questions.

Warmest regards,
The NuVista Team

In order to ensure the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that you please adhere to our updated office protocols – Please read our new protocols here

Graston Technique

Graston technique, or Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) utilizes a specially designed tool to effectively detect and treat soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. IASTM works by creating a localized inflammatory response, which causes repair and remodeling of dysfunctional tissues, resulting in improved healing, improved range of motion and decreased pain.

Several members of our team have taken extra training in IASTM techniques, and utilize a combination of tools (Graston, FAKTR, Hypervolt etc.) to get you the best results possible. This technique is particularly effective in managing sports related and acute muscle injuries, postural stress-associated dysfunction,

IASTM has been shown to effectively treat conditions such as

  • Achilles Tendinitis/osis (ankle pain)
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (wrist pain)
  • Cervicothoracic Sprain/Strain (neck pain)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lateral Epicondylitis/osis (tennis elbow)
  • Lumbosacral Sprain/Strain (back pain)
  • Medial Epicondylitis/osis (golfer’s elbow)
  • Myofascial Pain Syndromes
  • Patellofemoral Disorders (knee pain)
  • Plantar Fasciitis/osis (foot pain)
  • Post surgeries such as joint replacements, RTC repairs (once post-surgical protocol allows for soft tissue mobilization/manual therapy)
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinitis/osis (shoulder pain)
  • Scar Tissue/post-surgical scars (once completely closed)
  • Patients demonstrating central and/or peripheral sensitization (only used in light stroking/brushing mode to desensitize)
  • Shin Splints
  • Trigger Finger
  • Women’s Health (post-mastectomy and Caesarean scarring)
