Holiday Hours

Join the Holiday Spirit!

We are looking forward to having you join in on the holiday spirit activities we have running throughout the month of December!

NEW! Christmas Bake Off!
Christmas Cake

Who do you thinks has what it takes to bake their way to stardom? Dr. Tara, Dr. Tamara and CHA/IP Coach Maria all make a Christmas cake that their families look forward to over the holidays. We want to know who has the best recipe and need your help!

December 20th - 24th, we will have samples of each Christmas cake in the clinic for you to taste and vote for which one you think is the best! We will announce the winner the first week of January 2022!

A couple things to note:

  • Cake samples will be individually wrapped and tongs provided

  • Sample's will be anonymous so you won't know who's cake you're trying

Happy Baking & Tasting!

Spice the Elf is Back!

Hey AV Kids! Check out the letter we received from our Elf Spice! We are excited for her arrival on December 1st!

Spice the Elf!

Hi Advanced Vitality Friends,

I missed you so much! The Holiday Season is finally here and it is my favourite time of year. Each day, I will be hiding in a new place. But remember to leave me be, otherwise my magic will flee.

I'll be reporting back to Santa each night, so make sure to be on your best behaviour. Remember to be a good helper and always be kind to others.

I cannot wait to see all the good you're up to this month!

- Spice

Spice was pretty sneaky last year and had some great hiding spots. When you're in for your appointment, let us know if you spot her!

Holiday Photo Corner

Our Holiday Photo Corner will be set up at the clinic during Holiday Spirit Week - December 20th to December 24th. We will gladly use your phone to snap a photo or two of you and your family for the Holiday's!

Health Tip of the Month: AV Mobility Challenges

How's your range of motion?

We can spend a lot of time in poor, static positions - at work, in front of the tv, on our phones and our body gets tight and our range of motion decreases.

Join the Advanced Vitality team in our weekly Mobility Challenges! Each week, we will be posting on our social media a different mobility challenge to help improve your range of motion!

How do you get involved?


2. Video yourself completing the mobility challenge's

3. Post and tag us in your video's
