I am always impressed by both the professional and support staff at Vernon. Active Health. They are really a team who work at providing a good experience from making an appointment to getting services. I have gone to Cory for years for chiropractic work. I have just started doing the facial cupping with Debbie Jonasson and have had very good results with acupuncture and in particular Deb’s scar work with acupuncture. Thanks to Cory and his staff for a total package care centre.

“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!
