Health & Wellness Clinics

Employee Health & Wellness seminars are complimentary and can be booked for the staff at lunch or 15 minutes in the morning before a meeting or starting work. I can also book individual consultations at your place of work or after work at my office. I love participation in whatever your work attire is, so get ready to participate, all we need is a chair!

More and more compression

I am visiting more and more homes to see immobile patients for Medical Compression stockings. I measure their legs, order stockings from a doctor's referral, then teach the care giver how to put the stockings on. The stockings act as a muscle pump for the blood flow to go back up to the heart. They have a graduated pressure from the ankle (tightest) to the calf muscles of the lower legs (less compression) up to the thigh (least compression) or below the knee.

November is Diabetes month

November is Diabetes month and I am booking Employee Health & Wellness complimentary seminars. So far I have visited Atomic Energy, K.I. Pembroke, Pembroke Regional Hospital, Marianhill and November 14 is booked with a Pharmacy.

We discuss footwear, foot problems, diabetes, available aids through work, and participate in simple daily exercises for work and home that can be done sitting or standing. Handouts are distributed to participants.
