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!”

Common Work-Related Injuries

Repetitive strain injuries

When damage occurs to muscles, tendons and other soft tissues of the body due to repetitive and prolonged use.

Slips and falls

The injuries can result in fractures, sprains or even more severe injuries such as concussions.


When the body is subjected to excessive physical effort or strain, surpassing its capacity to handle the load, it can lead to increasing the risk of injury.

Frequently Asked WorkSafeBC Questions

Is a doctor’s referral required to attend treatment after my car accident?2024-02-01T14:00:43-08:00

If you are attending treatment within 12 weeks of your accident date, you do not need a doctor’s referral. If continued care is required, you will require a doctor’s note to advocate for your extended treatment. If you are seeking treatment more than 12 weeks after your accident date, you will require a doctor’s note.

What happens if require more treatment after the 12 weeks is up?2024-02-01T14:00:43-08:00

After your 12 weeks of treatment lapses and additional treatment is required, your therapist may submit a treatment plan to ICBC, seeking approval for continued care on your behalf. Once approval is issued, your treatment can continue.

Do you direct bill to ICBC on my behalf?2024-02-01T14:00:43-08:00

Yes, if you have an accepted ICBC claim, we can direct bill on your behalf. Not all treatments are covered at 100% by ICBC and some modalities may require you to pay a portion out of pocket if not covered by ICBC.
