Help needed: Join Our Team!

Our team is working hard to accommodate our patients, but we need help. We’re waiting for the right regulated health professional to join our team. Considerations to fill gaps in our care include a naturopathic doctor with a pediatric focus, another manual therapist, holistic dental practitioner, or nurse practitioner.

If you’re a healthcare professional already established elsewhere but interested in deeper collaboration with our team, we’d love to hear from you also!

Over 15 years, we’ve grown to support more than 10,000 patients. Many of our practitioners have been here for more than 10 years. Supporting each other in our work and loving our work environment is a key component of our success!

Please send all inquiries directly to Sonya.

It’s very possible that these increased costs will put our smaller suppliers out of business entirely (while the larger manufacturers and distributors like Nestle, remain).

Meditation“When meditation is mastered,

The mind is unwavering like the

Flame of a lamp in the windless place.

In the still mind,

In the depths of meditation,

The Self reveals itself.”
