Jump into June

Hopefully everyone is healthy, safe and looking forward to a great summer!

We have been lucky to have such great weather through the spring and are now looking ahead into the summer months with great optimism!

Whether you bike, garden, walk, run, swim, paddle, hike, or however else you move, remember to warmup first, stretch and take breaks as needed. Also, remember to hydrate as well as the days get warmer we tend to sweat more.

At any rate, I wanted to thank everyone for their continued trust in me, allowing me to help enhance your wellness. 

I look forward to seeing everyone at the clinic and hopefully everyone is doing great! Feel free to connect with me if you have any questions or comments, I highly encourage you to!

Update on COVID-19 Restrictions: We are OPEN!

As we continue to monitor the situation locally as it relates to the spread of COVID-19, I wanted to update patients on our efforts to continue to be vigilant and put our community's safety first in times like these.

The Provincial Government has moved the entire province into a Stay at Home order. This does not include attending medical appointment with Regulated Health Care Practitioners. 

Registered Massage Therapy is not affected and will continue to be open and operate as safely as possible while following recommendations and directives as ordered by the Ministry of Health and Provincial Governments. 

Please review my policies and procedures prior to booking and I will continue to do my best in providing a safe environment for all.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via email.

- Mandatory masks upon entry into the studio - staff and patients

- Physical Distancing of at least 6ft (2 meters) 

- Hand sanitizer stations at the entrances

- Health screening for all who enter; monitor for symptoms, contact with possible cases, travel etc.

- Staff will self screen for symptoms, contact with possible case, avoid travel.

- I will continue to provide 15 minute spaces between appointments and limit wait time for clients to enter upon arrival. 

- Please arrive at your appointment time (not more than 5 minutes early) to reduce possible contact with others exiting.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Expanded Normatec Compression Therapy Hours
Since March, Keaton has been offering Compression therapy as an added modality to his practice, which can rapidly help with post workout recovery, edema/swelling, venous insufficiency and other uses. Many have taken advantage of this service as it can drastically speed up recovery post-workout. It can also be quite relaxing!

With the expansion of his office hours, he is able to offer more availability for Normatec Bookings which can be booked through the online booking app for individual use. (Link below article)

Imagine a pair of pants that mimics giant blood pressure cuffs that pulses in segments, to increase blood flow in your legs, which delivers nutrients to your muscles and removes waste like lactic acid.

Sessions last 30 min.

Your circulatory system delivers oxygen, nutrients and hormones to every cell in your body. Simultaneously, Normatec Compression therapy removes metabolic wastes such as carbon dioxide and lactic acid, effectively flushing your system of toxins. 
The idea behind compression therapy is that by increasing blood flow to specific parts of the body, and encouraging your body to deliver more oxygen and nutrients to those areas, you can speed up recovery, relieve pain and improve athletic performance. 
  • Reducing swelling and inflammation 
  • Speeding up muscle recovery 
  • Preventing delayed-onset muscle soreness 
  • Relieving muscle pain
  • Improving athletic performance
  • Removing exercise-related wastes, like lactic acid 
  • Decreasing muscle fatigue
Ask Keaton about adding this to your next treatment, and if it is recommended. If you have tried it (or would like to) and would like to book it, you can do so through the online booking site.

Health and Safety Measures in Place

The Province of Ontario and the Ministry of Health has granted Regulated Health Practitioners permission to gradually and responsibly reopen their practices, following strict health measures and guidelines set out.
Because of the risk factors and how (COVID-19) is transmitted, measures will be put in place to reduce risks as much as possible especially to those most vulnerable.
One of these measures include wearing face masks. The Chief Medical Officer of Canada recommends face masks, and that they do in fact help to reduce the risk of transmission when used correctly.

Procedure/measures that will be implemented in addition to existing cleaning/disinfecting include:

- Pre-Appointment screening (received 24hrs prior to appointment - read and confirm)
- Screening at the appointment prior to treatment
- 15 Minute Gaps between appointments (This will allow for sufficient time for client departure, extra sanitizing measures)
- Personal Protective Equipment - Surgical mask will be worn by the therapist.
- Patients will be asked to wear masks (Please bring your own clean mask - reusable or single use) If you do not have one you will be provided with one at no cost.
- Patients will be asked to arrive on-time (no earlier than 5 minutes prior) and come by yourself for your appointment
- Patient should sanitize or wash hands upon arrival - both options are provided.
- Social Distancing - 6ft (2 metres) in the building, outside of treatment time (During intake, interview, post treatment)
- We will remove all items that cannot be sanitized to further reduce risk of contact transmission.
- FST Straps are now made of vinyl and can be wiped clean after each use.
