What's New in August

Written By Merivale Chiropractic and Massage Clinic on July 26, 2018

Tools 4 School

It's that time of year again! The Merivale Chiropractic & Massage Clinic is holding its annual Tools 4 School fundraiser to help the Nepean, Rideau and Osgoode Community Resource Centre (NROCRC) collect school supplies for children and youth in need. Join us as we hold our annual supply drive to support those families who need help providing their children with the proper tools to learn.

If you have extra school supplies or backpacks that you would like to donate, you can drop them off at our clinic (located inside Merivale Mall at 1642 Merivale Road) or directly at NROCRC (located at 1547 Merivale Road in the Emerald Plaza).

In the spirit of giving, new patients may donate a new backpack filled with the supplies listed below and receive a complimentary consultation, chiropractic exam, nervous system stress analysis (COREscore™), x-ray reading (if required) as well as a report of findings (value of $150). Alternatively, receive your initial exam for $50 and a donation will be made to Tools 4 School on your behalf.

The following is a list of supplies that NROCRC has recommended for the 2018 fundraiser:

Product of the Month: L-Theanine

L-Theanine is an amino acid found in tea leaves. When ingested, it helps to reduce restlessness and anxiety while promoting relaxation. It accomplishes this by boosting "brain-calming" chemicals like GABA, serotonin and dopamine while simultaneously inhibiting the stress hormone norepinephrine. L-Theanine also increases alpha brain waves, which are only present when we are both alert and relaxed.

For more information on this product or to speak to a chiropractor to see if L-Theanine could benefit you, please call (613) 226-8142 or contact us here.

Hormones have various effects on women's overall health including reproduction, mood, energy level, weight, sleep patterns and more.
