Sometimes in our weight loss journey, the scale will refuse to budge even though we may look and feel better. The InBody will help prove your progress beyond the scale, and give you a better idea of your overall health. This test will measure the breakdown of body composition in regards to fat (including visceral), water and muscle weight. It can also further break down fat composition on each arm, leg, and trunk.
The InBody is great for athletes, those wanting to lose weight, or those wanting an overall health screening.
Women are the building blocks of family and society but still one of the most neglected health groups. Our research dollars today do not match the issues that women battle.

At CentreSpring MD + Pediatrics, children are cared for as individuals. Our team of board-certified, compassionate providers are conventionally-trained, but set apart because they diagnose and treat pediatric patients by pulling from conventional, integrative, holistic, functional and Chinese medicine to create the best customized treatment plans possible.
Our founder, Dr. Taz Bhatia, M.D., believes that healthy children require more than just well-checks, good vital signs and vaccines. She’s seen thousands of pediatric patients, and that’s why she’s trained her team of providers to go beyond treating symptoms. When you choose us, your child will spend well-beyond the average “7-minutes in the patient room" with our providers and complete a thorough set of custom diagnostic tests that you won’t find in a typical pediatric-setting. This approach allows our team to get to the root of your child’s health issues and learn more about his/her biotype—uncovering the way they should eat, genetic markers, what supplementation is needed—setting them up for a lifetime of better health. Whether you simply want to go beyond conventional medical treatment for your child, or you’re struggling and at a dead-end with treating allergies, eczema, gut health or behavior, our team can help.
We offer: Pediatric Well Checks, Sick Visits, Newborn Care, Vaccine Counseling, and Sports Physicals.

For patients with cancer—whether just receiving the diagnosis, currently receiving treatment, or in post care—acupuncture is used to support the physical body and the spirit.

There are increasing numbers of autoimmune diseases today, a reflection of the environment and its influence on our genetics and micro-biome. At CentreSpring MD, we have worked with thousands of patients battling an autoimmune disease. From inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis) to Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis to CIDP, our providers tackle these diseases by evaluating the cause of inflammation and where inflammation and epigenetics interact to create disease. We are happy to work with your rheumatologist as well, combining the best of conventional treatments with strategies to combat inflammation with a holistic approach. We use sophisticated testing and lab analysis to understand the root of your autoimmune disease and get you back to your centre.
Disease and illness prevention is not only colonoscopies, cholesterol screenings and mammograms. Prevention should encompass the chemistry of your health as well: how you process hormones, where you stand with inflammation, your nutritional status and its influence on your health and your emotional risk factors—the role stress, trauma or isolation may be having on your health. Embrace a new definition of prevention and stay healthy for years to come.
Can we stop aging or reverse the hand of time? Not exactly, but we can help to slow the aging process. Aging, research suggests, is a continuum, determined by the interplay of your micronutrient status, detoxification capacity, inflammation risks and epigenetics. We can measure your aging index by looking at your telomeres, amongst other markers. Stop the continuum by learning more about your health, strategies to reverse aging and natural cosmetic alternatives to look your best.
