Elevating Health & Thriving in the Life you Love

At AltaVie Integrated Family Health, we believe that patients should be treated as a whole person. It takes a time investment to investigate your individual situation, treat the problems discovered, and teach you how to make sure that the same thing doesn't keep happening again and again!

That is why our initial chiropractic exam is a full hour and our regular office visits are 15 minutes long. During the initial exam, we will take a full history, do a basic and problem specific physical exam, and, most of the time, provide the initial treatment.  If we feel that additional information is needed prior to treatment, then we will refer you to gather that information first, whether imaging or lab work or a different set of eyes.

Does the thought of 60 minutes with your little one in tow sound intimidating? We can split the initial exam into a phone history call and shorter focused physical exam in office.  Call the office to arrange convenient scheduling for you.

During your initial massage appointment, you will have an opportunity to review your medical history, explore your current injury (if applicable), and express your massage preferences.  Each therapeutic massage visit will provide ample space for a consistent dialogue regarding injury updates and treatment style preferences... unless, of course, you prefer that cherished moment of silence!

Please review our RMT bios as each one has a slightly different treatment styles and practice focus and we want to make sure we find the right fit for you. 

Your initial naturopathic visit will be over an hour long, providing plenty of time for a complete history and to delve into your health dilemmas.  Our naturopath offers a wide variety of treatment options, including nutrition counselling, herbal medicine, acupuncture, and mindfulness-based stress reduction. Naturopathic Doctors in British Columbia have a very wide scope of practice, including pharmaceutical prescription rights and the capacity to run a variety of lab analyses.

Our office is designed to cater to moms and kids.  We do our best to respect your peace during massage visits, but please understand that we are also dedicated to creating a safe space for parents to come with the infants and kids in tow, whether they are perfectly quiet or not.

Our incredible Occupational Therapist Jen Taubensee can meet you where you like!  She schedules two days of treatments in the office and three days of treatments in the community.  That means that she can come to your home or meet you at the playground or wherever suits your family best.  This is a great opportunity to encourage familiarity and comfort for your child as you work on the areas in which you are struggling.

Not sure where to start? You can book in for a free 15 minute chat with one of our Doctors of Chiropractic or our Occupational Therapist.  There will not be any treatment provided during these appointments, but you will have a chance to let us know what you have going on and address any questions or concerns that you might have.  If we aren't what is right for you, we will do our best to help you find who is. We have an extensive network of wonderful health professionals in our community and we play well with others.  If we are a good fit, then we will help guide you through initiating a care plan that is right for the health of you or your child.
