We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
After identifying which spinal bones have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is administered to free up “stuck” joints, stabilizing nerve and muscle imbalances and correcting vertebral misalignments called subluxation.
Activator Methods ®
This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust for gentle non-invasive correction of the vertebral misalignment.
Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.
This equipment utilizes technology developed by NASA. MyoVision® has the unique capability of quantifying the electrical activity of the various muscle groups. It is used to diagnose neuro-muscular abnormalities.
Proellixe Vibration ®
Whole body vibration is an effective way to tone muscles, burn fat, increase lymphatic drainage, reduce cellulite and increase serotonin levels. This amazing technology works with your body by sending small, rapid vibrations throughout your body, passively stretching your muscles. As a result, your body responds with resistance, causing muscle fibers to contract, stretch, and increase muscle tone without producing lactic acid.
ATM Back Project ®
The ATM® or Active Therapeutic Movements, is a unique system that isolates specific areas that need to be strengthened and stretched. The ATM therapy works by isolating neuromuscular activity to the injured nerves and muscles that cause pain and stiffness. It re-educates the function of the impaired muscle activity, resulting in immediate reduction of pain and improved range of motion.
Cold Light Laser
Cold Light Laser therapy has been utilized in Chiropractic treatment for the last twenty years. The low level light laser reaches the injured tissue, reducing cellular edema and inflammation of cells, causing improved cellular function and healing of injured tissues caused by sprains and strains. We have found that the use of the laser reduces healing time and regains normal function to the injured area.
What to Expect
If you’ve ever gone to a social event where you didn’t know anyone, you know how uncomfortable that can make you feel. Our goal is to eliminate every shred of apprehension and make you feel at home.
Since chiropractic care involves a series of visits, with each one building on the ones before, it’s important that our relationship can go the distance. We’ve found that one of the best ways to have successful patient relationships is to explain everything in advance. No surprises!
The more you understand who we are, what we do and why we do it, the better results you’ll enjoy. It’s as simple as that.
So, check us out here. Get to know us. Then, contact us to make an appointment so we can get to know you.
- First Visit. To find out if we can help you, we ask questions and listen.
- Second Visit. We’ll report what we found and answer all your questions.
- Regular Visit. A typical visit will be much shorter, but just as important!
"I first came to Peninsula Wellness Centre as a chiropractic patient for lower back and neck problems that had given me trouble since I was in medical school. I have always had an interest in alternative medicine and Dr. Watson came highly recommended from another physician. I began treatments and was quite pleased with the care I was given. We started talking about diet and nutrition and he suggested that I go on a low calorie diet with HCG drops. I was quite amazed at the results, and in just a few weeks I had lost 13 lbs. Following the diet, I went on a maintenance plan for 3 more weeks and lost another 3 lbs. I was feeling better, and the pains in my knees and hips that had been there for many years were gone. I'm very happy with the high quality care and treatments I received from Peninsula Wellness Centre and would recommend Dr. Watson to anyone who wants to live a healthier life style, look and feel better."

"Before coming to Peninsula Wellness Centre I had been to many different chiropractors over the past 20 years. Various techniques were used on me in attempts to reduce my pain and increase my mobility without much success. I'm a 42 year old male with chronic ailments that have gotten progressively worse over the years. I would like to say thank you Dr. Watson for what you have done for my health and the quality of my life.
I'm so excited about the changes you have made with my health in such a short period of time. You have given me simple tips in diet and exercise that have not only made me feel better, but so much easier to move as well. I am finally back to playing tennis. The equipment you have and the latest techniques and technology you use in your practice are really impressive. Your adjustments are smooth and always make me feel better. Thank you for helping me. I look forward for the new things that I'm sure you are planning to add to Peninsula Wellness Centre."
