Morgan S
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the service because it has been great and professional with every appointment, and I have also referred many people due to this amazing service. Thank you Mykha Wetjen”
Tracey Best

“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!”

B. G.

“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.”
