Remembrance Day

November 11 - 11:00am

On Friday November 11th as a nation, we pay tribute to members of the Canadian Armed Forces and RCMP who served to defend our values and freedoms. We also honour those who continue to serve our country today. Join the Advanced Vitality Team as we participate in the act of Remembrance with 2 minutes of silence on Friday November 11th at 11am.

Every year, from the last Friday of October to November 11, tens of millions of Canadians wear a Poppy as a visual pledge to honour Canada’s Veterans and remember those who sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today. While the Poppy is distributed freely to all who wish to wear one, the Legion gratefully accepts donations to the Poppy Fund. Click the button below to donate to the Poppy fund online:

Here are 4 ways you can participate in Remembrance Day 2022:


The Webster Technique for Pregnancy

If you follow us on Social Media you've been learning a ton about The Webster Technique as our Doctors do a deep dive on the topic. More and more women are taking the time during pregnancy to really empower themselves and learn more about the birth process and the natural options available to help them have a healthy and amazing pregnancy and delivery - including prenatal chiropractic! Read more and watch some of our educational videos by clicking the link below.


Tongue Ties, Latching & Chiropractic

Follow us during the month of November on our social media platforms as our "Doc Talk Tuesdays" and "Thursday Thoughts" Lives discuss the beneficial role pediatric chiropractic care plays in supporting healthy latching and breast feeding. Each week our Doc Team provides helpful tips to educate what lip/tongue tie releases are and why they are so popular now. We aim to help you to identify if your baby has tongue or lip ties and provide home care strategies and exercises to help support a strong latch, suck and swallow. We also dive deep in a discussion about why supportive chiropractic care and cranial work is important for your baby pre and post tie releases. Make sure you send us all your questions so our Doc Team can address them and answer them each Thursday during our Lives! See you online!


Clinic Member Spotlight: Meet Nicole & her kiddos!

Meet Nicole and her beautiful kids. Nicole was struggling with a lot of pain and discomfort in her third pregnancy and since her medical team told her "it was just something to expect with multiple pregnancies", she decided she needed to take matters into her own hands. She had been to a workshop at a mom group (mommy connections) years before where Dr. Tara spoke about prenatal and pediactric chiropractic. At the time, she didn't think she needed it, but now that she was pregnant again and starting to feel sciatica symptoms, she knew it was time to reach out!

"When I was experiencing pain during my pregnancy, I reached out and booked an appointment. I was so happy to have someone listen to my concerns and help me."


Orthotics Workshop

Saturday November 19 9:30am-12:00 noon

Are you suffering with chronic foot, knee or back pain?! Maybe it's time to check your FEET! Even the experts at Harvard recommend custom made orthotics, so what are you waiting for?

Check out this video about how our lab Premier Orthotics Lab (POL) constructs your Custom Made Orthotics:

Goodbye To Ideal Protein

Many of you dieters have already been contacted by Coach Maria about our upcoming change to the Ideal Protein Services offered at Advanced Vitality so it comes as no surprise that as of January 1, 2023 we will no longer be offering the Ideal Protein Coaching Services or Products through Advanced Vitality. This comes as Advanced Vitality makes a shift in our clinical focus on improving our chiropractic services and member experience!

If you have any questions or concerns about where you can go to continue your Ideal Protein Journey we recommend clicking below:
