PHILOSOPHY


McIsaac Health Systems Inc. was founded to restore the health of our clients through movement, nutrition, and recovery. Our team, and our methods, are guided by the philosophy of Movement, Nutrition, and Recovery as Medicine. All are deeply connected to each other, and equal in their contribution. Whether you are recovering from an injury, interested in becoming more fit, or focused on improving athletic/tactical performance, our qualified team and our approaches can get you there.


Movement: Western society has become sedentary, contributing to a myriad of serious metabolic (i.e., insulin resistance, diabetes) cardiovascular (i.e., high blood pressure, atherosclerosis) and musculoskeletal (i.e., low back pain, and neck pain) conditions. The body manages many muscles, stabilizers, synergists, and joints simultaneously to produce movement. Our exercises acknowledge and implement these characteristics to enhance activities of daily living and overall health, performance, and longevity. Such an approach is known as functional training. Our team of Kinesiologists will perform thorough initial consultations and movement screens, developing  exercise programs specific to your needs, to get you back on your feet.


Nutrition: Plays a central role in our health and longevity. Natural and nutrient dense foods (i.e., organic fish, meat, chicken, nuts, oils, fruits, and vegetables) and adequate hydration are essential in promoting higher energy levels, lean body mass, and improved performance. Out of convenience, society has moved away from these staples in favour of processed foods and sugar-based beverages. However, such foods are deleterious our health and longevity. Our Kinesiologists will provide nutritional coaching, helping you make healthier dietary choices.


Recovery: Do you feel tired, sore, and worn out? Most people do. Our team can help you improve your sleeping hygiene, teach relaxation techniques, and provide methods to loosen up sore muscles from work, life, and training sessions. We also have an outside network of trusted and reputable professionals (i.e., physiotherapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, registered massage therapists) to help with other stressors that may be hindering your progress and goals. We believe in client-centered care, and we are here to help you, help yourself.
