Fall has arrived!

October is our anniversary month and we recently held a customer appreciation week.  Prizes were awarded for a lucky few of many that entered a customer satisfaction survey - many thanks for doing that!  Congrats to Lynda, Michael, Claudia, Robyn and Francisco who won valuable apple creek products.  Special thanks to Chris at the Stouffville Canadian Tire who donated a magic bullet to the prize table.  Some of those who were in the clinic last week for therapy might have been awarded one of our t-shirts.  If you missed yours last week, ask us next time you're in or send us an email and we will get you hooked up!

Tips to stay away from the clinic :)
Lift Right:
  • Make sure your back is straight and always bend your knees.  
  • Carry the load close to your body.  
  • Avoid heavy lifting immediately after bending or kneeling.
Kneel to Plant:
  • Use knee pads or a kneeling mat to reduce the strain while you plant and weed.  
  • Keep your back straight and stop frequently to take a break.
Rake Right:
  • Ease the strain on your back by putting one leg in front, the other behind.  
  • Switch legs and hands from time to time.
The Right Tools: 
  • Choose tools that are ergonomically designed, with long padded handles and spring action.
  • Make sure the size and weight are right for you.
  • Always choose the proper tool for the job you're doing.
General Tips:
  • A good cart or dolly makes moving heavier loads a breeze.
  • A wheelbarrow that is lightweight and has two wheels is a good idea.
  • Separate larger loads into several small ones.
  • Select comfortable, thick soled, supportive shoes.
  • Alternate between light and heavy jobs.
  • Before you start, warm up your muscles.
  • Change positions frequently.
As of January 2017, John will be making all of his appointments 1 hour to further the osteopathic effect of his treatments.  We will also be adding a second osteopathic practitioner in the new year to accommodate the high demand for the service - more to come!
Holiday Season is around the corner!  Don't forget that an hour massage is a great gift.  Pick up your gift certificates today!
