Hi! I’m Courtney O’Connor the newest addition to the KIHC team. I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist who has a passion to see people fulfill their highest health potential. I am very excited to have the opportunity to serve and to assist you in reaching your health goals through a holistic approach. When our bodies are healthy, balanced and working in harmony, we are free to enjoy life to the fullest. We can focus on sharing our unique gifts and talents with the world and to be of greater service.
Holistic Nutrition is a modality in which client’s health is addressed from a whole person perspective; mind, body, and, spirit, using whole foods and complementary therapies. The mind, body and spirit are all connected and we aim to thrive in each area for optimal health.
Similar to ripples on a pond, sound is a pressure wave created by a vibrating object. Sound (pleasant and unpleasant) surrounds us whether we hear it or not. We use sound through our communication (conversation, music, TV). Since we are primarily composed of water, we also feel the physical and emotional effects of sound as sound travels faster through water than in air. We notice these effects when we tune into our favourite music, lean against a party speaker, hear children laughing, and hear family, friends or co-workers arguing. Our bodies are powerful resonators of sound. Sound has subtle, but profound effects on our body/mind, and spirit.
We’ve put together 3 of our favourite products in a nice little gift box, perfect for friends and family and just in time for the cold season. Though true prevention involves addressing immune system balance, these kits are designed to give you an extra boost at the early signs of symptoms. $45 each.
A gift for integrative health services is a thoughtful way to support a friend or family member in their efforts toward health and happiness. KIHC gift certificate recipients may apply their gift to whichever service they prefer, including massage, reiki, osteopathic treatment or acupuncture for chronic pain, or even food allergy testing. If you’d like, we’ll help guide them to healthcare options that best suit their needs.
We’re in need of an experienced Registered Massage Therapist to join our integrative health team.

There are 500 species of microorganisms in your mouth! Unfortunately many have the capability of entering your bloodstream, therefore increasing your potential for systemic infections. Evaluation of the bacteria below your gumline is best done with a phase contrast microscope. It is quick, easy and non-invasive. No longer do we just use indicators such as bleeding and pocket depths as signs of gum disease. High numbers of spirochetes and white blood cells are closely related to chronic gum disease. The health of your mouth is linked to increased risk of heart attack, stroke, ulcers, diabetes, respiratory disease and cancer.
