Please note, online booking may not be available for your therapist. If so, you can contact your therapist to find out their availability via email. 

We have implemented cleaning and safety protocols to keep everyone safe. Please review the following before your next visit: 

  • We ask that you please stay home if you are sick and experiencing any covid-like symptoms. This is the most important way that we can all keep each other safe. 

  • Before your appointment, you will receive an electronic Covid-19 survey through your Jane account that will screen for travel outside the territory, contact with confirmed cases and symptoms. Please complete this survey prior to your appointment.

  • When you arrive for your appointment, we ask that you wait in your vehicle or outside the building. We will call or text you when we are ready for you to come up. This is a measure that has been put in place in order to manage the flow of traffic coming in/out of the clinic. If you do not have a cell phone, please make your therapist aware of this and other arrangements can be made. 

  • When you enter the clinic, we ask that you please sanitize your hands with the hand sanitizer provided at the entrance. 

  • We have masks and gloves in stock. The therapists are prepared to use this PPE for treatment of any patient that is immunocompromised. If you prefer that you/your therapist use mask or gloves during your appointment, please let us know. 

  • As we are trying to limit the number of people entering the clinic, we ask that you minimize the number of people you bring with you to your next visit at Health Space. Please make childcare or transportation arrangements that allow for this. 

  • We have increased the time between bookings in order to allow for additional cleaning procedures to keep everyone safe.

| OSTEOPATHY |

This holistic manual therapy finds the source of the dysfunction and removes the barriers so that the body is able to heal and self-regulate. Osteopathic Treatment works with all of the systems in the body, such as the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, cranial and, visceral systems. Osteopathic manual therapy is effective in the treatment of acute or chronic pain and injuries as well as conditions such as but not limited to migraines, concussions, sinusitis, TMJ dysfunction and digestive problems. Osteopathic treatments are generally gentle and non-invasive and are therefore suitable for patients of all ages which includes babies, children and the elderly.

| TRADITIONAL CHINESE ACUPUNCTURE |

TCM Acupuncture is one of the limbs of the Traditional Chinese Medicine healing system dating back over 7000 years.  It is a method of restoring inner balance, using fine sterile needles placed in specific locations on the body, called “acupoints”.  These acupoints usually occur along energetic channels throughout the body known as “meridians”.   

The system is based on the philosophy that the human body is comprised of an energy known as “qi” (pronounced “chi”).  When any kind of illness or discomfort (physical, mental, emotional) arises in the individual, it is due to a disturbance in this flow of qi.  Through strategic placement of the needles,  qi flow is restored in the body, bringing relief of symptoms and an overall sense of well being.

  • Pain
