  • Torque Release Technique (TRT)

    Torque Release Technique (TRT), is the first chiropractic technique of the new millennium and provides practice members of any age.

    TRT is a mixture of the ”best-of- the-best” systems of chiropractic assessment and care.

    Published research shows TRT to be successful in reducing anxiety and depression, and improved measurements of well-being.

  • Tonal Integrative Correction (TIC)

    Tonal Integrative Correction (TIC) Chiropractic System is based upon chiropractic’s founder D.D. Palmer’s statement that “life is the expression of tone.” TIC was developed right here in Alberta by Dr. Jason Sabo within the largest family practice in Canada.

    By bringing together neural, muscular and skeletal components, TIC restores the normal degree of nerve tension (tone) and expression for the maintenance of optimal body harmony and function.

    TIC is about removing interference within the body, so that the power that made the body can heal the body. Many patients have reported improvement of symptoms to absolute remission with consistent neurological correction.

    Over the past decade of hands on learning and application in a clinical setting, the TIC Chiropractic System has helped to clarify and improve the chiropractor’s ability to provide safe, gentle and specific care that has patients coming back for maintenance and referring their loved ones in, to begin their chiropractic journey.

TRT device
TRT is based upon what D.D.(founder of chiropractic) and B.J.(developer of chiropractic) intended – that we have innate and genetic potential and that the subluxation interferes with this expression. TRT is a tonal technique based on constant never ending improvement.”
Matthew McCoy, D.C. Director of Research Life University, Chief Editor of Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research; VP of Council of Chiropractic Practice
  • Gentle and Effective

    Most people have assumptions about what chiropractic is, but what we do is very different.

    We want you to experience a new way to obtain optimal health. Torque Release Technique and Tonal Integrative Correction entails no twisting, cracking or popping.

    You will have confidence in getting your brand new baby, children, right through to grandma and grandpa adjusted for the most effective care available today. The correction is so specific we have had great results from the smallest person to the largest athlete. Through a series of neurological checks, Dr. Glen assesses when, where and what to adjust in order to get to the primary cause within the spine.

  • Pregnancy and Pediatric Care

    Dr. Glen, being a father of two young boys, has a passion for helping pregnant women and children.

    Dr. Glen’s care is designed specifically to help moms be more comfortable throughout their pregnancy, as well as be perfectly aligned to assist in the best delivery possible and to give your baby the best start.

    When performing an adjustment on a child, a skilled and experienced chiropractor, like Dr. Johanson, need only use a minimal amount of force, analogous to the pressure used to check the skin of a ripe tomato, and can even be performed while the child is sleeping!
