Welcome back to Active Life Health Clinic's February newsletter.
Looking for some R&R?
Find some rest and relaxation (and health!) with reiki and reflexology! Visit Active Life Health Clinic
for our R&R Open House Day Monday February 23rd from 2-6 p.m. Book
a time for yourself and maybe a friend. It's a great Valentine's Day
gift! Read below for details as these practitioners are fantastic!
you’re in the clinic, check out our new stainless steel no leak
tea bottles. Regularly $18, for February we’re offering them for
only $15. No excuse not to make sure to drink your customized Chinese
herbal formulas when you can take them on the go!
And, speaking of (ok, writing of…) customized herbs, if you have any of your used
customized herb bottles, bring them in so that we can wash and reuse
them. That’s the 3rd R for this “R” themed month:
what letter comes after “R”? “S”, of course,
and “S” is for sauna. If you’re looking for a way to
get warm, detoxify, increase your metabolism, relieve pain, get rid of
a cold, and improve the health and appearance of your skin, then far
infrared sauna sessions are your solution. Until the end of the winter,
or until I run out of tea bottles, whichever comes first, I will offer
1 free stainless steel tea bottle for every package of ten 30-minute
sauna sessions (for $200). For more info about the benefits of far
infrared sauna, click here.
Finally, do you know someone with asthma or other lung
challenge? On February 22nd I’m going to climb 48
storeys at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre to raise funds for the
Lung Association of BC. Join me on this wonderful challenge (it sounds
scary, but apparently the average climb time is only 10 minutes) or
donate to this important cause. To join the climb, contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). To donate, you can do so at my clinic or go directly to the website at BC Lung Association.
Thank you for your support!
Helping you help yourself!
To work in partnership with you to bring you to
your optimal health.
Ongoing health, not just temporary relief.
This is active health.

Why? A chance to relax and work on your health. What could be better?
First, what are reflexology and reiki?
is a non-invasive therapeutic treatment applied to the hands, feet and
ears using finger and thumb massage techniques. It is based on the
premise that there are reflex points in the hands, feet and ears
corresponding via nerve pathways of the nervous system (Western
Medicine) and/or meridians (Eastern Medicine) to every part, organ and
gland of the body. By massaging the feet, hands and ears, reflexology
stimulates the body to return to optimum health.
(pronounced ray-key) is made of two Japanese words - Rei, which means
“God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power”, and Ki, which is
"life force energy". It is a Japanese holistic, light-touch,
energy-based modality that re-establishes a normal energy flow of ki
(life force energy) throughout the system. This can then, in turn,
enhance and accelerate the body's innate healing ability.
