“Terrific physiotherapy for athletes”

“Today I had an initial acupuncture appointment with Debra. She was great. Debra also did cupping on my back and this wasn’t cupping I’ve been accustomed to. Typically, I had it where the cup is placed on an area for a period of time then pulled off, however, Debra was moving the cup all over my back and then left a bunch on while she worked the other side. I haven’t felt this loose and good for a long time. I’ll be scheduling another acupuncture and cupping session in the future fur sure. If you have Instagram, check out their page and watch the video that says, “Spring Cleaning” on it. Their page is vernon_active_health . 🙂 Highly recommend and the staff are great!”
“This place is great! The staff is extremely friendly, and they all make you feel so welcome, and more importantly, they take such great care of you.”
“Riley and his team have changed my life for the better and I can’t thank them enough. Truly the best place in the Okanagan to receive physical therapy.”
