OUR CLINIC IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
HOW WE ARE HANDLING COVID-19
UPDATED MARCH 23, 2020
I am writing this today with very torn feelings. I feel like my line of work and my facility is considered an essential service, however, with the new recommendations sent down from my governing college yesterday I feel that it is in my clinics best interest as well as my therapist that we closed the clinic.
The recommendations in the new email send out yesterday I find has a lot of grey areas that can be risky based on interpretation, and the last thing I would ever want is to leave my therapists or my clinic at any negative risk.
I would love to be available to help anyone needing our assistance in the community and want nothing more to help all of you, and feel that up until now we have been very diligent in following all recommendations and protocol thus far in treating clients in a safe environment.
We will be available AS SOON as we are safe to and continue caring for our community.
I THANK YOU ALL for you support and hope to serve you in the future.
I will be checking phones regularly..if anyone has any questions regarding aches and pains and what they can do to treat at home I'd be happy to call you with some advice and or email you stretches. furthermore I will be posting info on things that people can do at home to help with various ailments on my clinic Facebook page. **

Clean your hands often - Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

I knew at a young age that I wanted to be able to help people to help themselves become happy and healthy and I was most interested in the many ways that this could be achieved without the use of traditional medicine.
At the age of 17, I worked as a summer student at Stelco and with my very first paycheque in hand, I convinced a friend to drive me straight to the Massage College in Hamilton Ont. Without my parents knowledge, I wrote the school entry exam and paid a deposit for starting classes that September. I knew at the time that if I passed the exam and paid my own way, my parents would have no choice but to agree to me attending.
It was a 2 year program straight through with a government board examination to be registered. I started in September 1998 and graduated the program in 2000.
For many years I have been able to help so many people with various ailments and found my profession to be very rewarding and I thoroughly enjoy every day that I go to work.
For 10 years I had worked in a facility in the back half of a small medical clinic in my hometown of Cayuga Ont. During that time I had brought on a chiropractor as well as another RMT and a Naturopathic Doctor. By 2013 I realized that after 10 years I had outgrown our 500 sq ft facility and a bigger clinic was necessary. I had also come to the realization that much more than what I could currently offer, in the way of alternative healthcare, was needed in our small community with many baby boomers.
I began searching for a new facility in April of 2013 and after a gruelling 8 months of searching I was able (with lots of help from Peter Vandendool) to find a 2500 sq ft facility that could house all of the healthcare therapies I had hoped to have to benefit our community.
In December of 2013 I opened my dream facility! Thanks to John VanReenan, a local businessman, I was able to accomplish my goal. I am so blessed to have the occupation and the facility I have and look forward to being able to help my community with all of their healthcare needs.
