Stay Healthy and Book Some “Me Time” this Holiday

This year has been full of unprecedented twists, turns, ups, downs, and uncertainties. As a collective, not only as Calgarians and Canadians, but as citizens of the world, we’ve had to make more changes and adjustments in our everyday life than we are used to. It hasn’t been easy, and we’ve all struggled in our own ways, but it has also helped us focus on the things that are most important – the health and wellness of ourselves and the communities we live in. 

Although many in-person services have been shut down for the time being, you still have access to regulated health professionals such as chiropractors, dentists, psychologists and more. These health professionals have taken every possible precaution to ensure your safety, with many of them offering appointments virtually, so book some “me time,” in your schedule and book that appointment you have been putting off at one of our 17th Ave health services.
