It is for people who want to resolve their injuries quickly and ensure a healthy and safe return to their desired activities. The professional staff at Active Wellness are trained in the treatment of sports and activity-related injuries, wholistic therapies, naturopathy, acupuncture and medical problems. We provide individual current and comprehensive treatment and personal training programs.

4) Do I need a doctor’s referral?
Often times you do not need a referral for therapy. All therapies are covered by extended health benefits- but you should look at your individual plan in order to see if the specific therapy that you request is covered by your plan.
A doctor’s referral can be used at any clinic regardless of the clinic that they have suggested.
5) If I need an appointment should I go to my family doctor first or just call Active Wellness?
You do not need a referral to consult with the health professionals at Active Wellness, however, we always encourage involving your family doctor. You may call our office directly in order to make an appointment.
Our philosophy is to involve your family doctor in the care of your injury as much as possible.
6) What is the waiting period to get an appointment?
Often clients can be seen within 24-48 hours from the time that they call the clinic.
"The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds."
