As a health care facility we regularly sanitize our equipment and surfaces with medical grade disinfectant. We have increased this frequency in light of the current situation. In addition, we have removed all toys and magazines from our waiting room and increased the distance between chairs. Regular hand washing and the use of alcohol based hand sanitizer by staff is standard practice. We will continue to adhere to the recommendations set forth by public health officials.
Drs. Godin and Payne have cancelled their March Break trip and will instead enjoy a staycation with their family. Both doctors will be working on Thursday, March 19, and returning on March 23 for their regular hours.
There are no changes to the schedules of our other practitioners over the break.
Please be assured that the health and wellness of our patients and staff is our top priority.
We are all working together to stay healthy!

Did you know that headaches can actually be coming from your TMJ (jaw)? Sometimes grinding at night, aggressive chewing and facial trauma can cause the joints and muscles to become irritated and inflamed. Our massage therapists can help with intra-oral massage, our chiropractors can help with alignment and mobility, and acupuncture can help to relax the related musculature and decrease pain. The result could be less headaches!
We are pleased to provide appointments with Emily Burnie, our Registered Acupuncturist. Emily has appointments available on Mondays and Wednesdays. From migraines to smoking cessation, acupuncture can help with a wide variety of issues!
Due to the forecasted blizzard we will be closed on Monday, February 13. All patients with appointments will be contacted to reschedule. Shovel safe!
