Registered Massage Therapy available again!

We are so excited to announce that as of Monday June 15, 2020 we have registered massage therapy available at the clinic once again!

Susan Tomkins will be in on Thursdays from 11-7 and every other Friday 11-7. We also have a new registered massage therapist, Sarah Podolsky, beginning on Mondays from 3:30-7:30. More information about Susan and Sarah can be found on our website.

A gentle reminder that 2hrs before each appointment a covid prescreening will be sent out to you through email. You will be asked to wash your hands after you enter the premises, and you are required to wear a mask in the clinic, as well as during treatment.

These are new times for us all and we know they are different. We are looking forward to navigating them together, and are excited to provide care for you again!

See you soon!

Susan and Sarah

Supporting each other!

Thank you so much for all of your outpourings of support for the clinic through this difficult time. We are very grateful to have such wonderful patients. Some of you have asked how you can continue to help and we’ve come up with a few ideas if you are interested and able.

  • Follow us on Facebook (Danforth East Wellness) and Instagram (@DanforthEastWellness), if you don’t already
  • Read and share our blogs and Facebook posts
  • Consider buying gift certificates for registered massage therapy (just a side note that they cannot be reimbursed by insurance companies)
  • Leave reviews for us on Facebook, Google and Yelp

To help support YOU through this time, please know that we are available for virtual appointments and consultations for any of your questions. Let us know if there is particular content you would like us to address in our blogs that would help you. Also, please know that if you DO happen to run into difficulties, our chiropractors are available for emergency only visits.

Take care and be well until we see you next,

Here for you. Resources & Telehealth Update

Dear Danforth East Wellness Community,

 

There have been lots of questions and information circulating about how COVID-19 may impact your family, your business, and your healthcare.  I am reaching out to ask:

 

How are you?

 

How can I help?

 

Although the physical clinic is closed, I’m still offering consults by Telehealth, including free 15-minute discovery calls.  I have increased my availability so I can be of service to you, when it is convenient for you.  My new hours are listed below.

 

I also want to provide you with some additional information and resources to help support your awareness of the situation and how it may affect you.  The two factors for contracting any infectious illness are based on susceptibility and exposure:

 

Exposure is a huge focus, and the evidence shows that COVID-19 transmits via Droplets & Contact, including surfaces. Droplet/Surface precautions are what you have to focus on.  This includes cleaning surfaces, practicing hand hygiene, avoid touching your face, and physical distancing. Please continue to do your part to help flatten the curve.

Here are some great resources to check out for more information.

Proper Hand Washing Technique

What to do if you are sick

What it means to self-monitor vs. self-isolate vs. quarantine

 

Susceptibility involves a more complex array of factors. There is an increased risk of more severe outcomes for Canadians:

  • aged 65 and over
  • with compromised immune systems
  • with underlying medical conditions

 

There is no better time than now to focus on your health.  My priority is ensuring you get the support you need, and invest in your health in a productive way – so you can be the best version of you. 

      

Above all else, I hope you are keeping safe, remaining calm and focusing on the important things – family, love, kindness, and gratitude. 

 

I am here for you.  Please do not hesitate to reach out.  

 

In health & happiness, 

Dr. Nicole, ND

Tuesdays 12:00pm – 8:00pm
