Please Remove Your Wet Boots

Now that the snow and salt are here, we kindly ask that you remove your wet boots when you're in for your appointments. We have lots of little ones that like to crawl around on our floors and we like to keep them as clean as possible!

Thanks for your cooperation!


Happy Birthday Dr. Tara!

On Tuesday, February 15th we celebrate Dr. Tara's birthday!

Make sure you are following us on Instagram and Facebook to wish her a Happy Birthday and to check out her birthday reel!


Birth Announcements

Introducing Baby Salman

"Dr. Tara, as always, was great throughout my pregnancy. Working from home this pregnancy, I felt I would experience more bodily pain because as I grew in my last pregnancy, I was able to incorporate a good walk during my commute to work, but I was pleasantly wrong."

Dr. Tara, Wajiha and Son

'My prenatal chiropractic adjustments during my pregnancy helped me remain almost pain free. Dr. Tara always shares helpful tips and links on how to address and modify routines so they are not so hard on the body and I felt the benefits as my belly grew.

Now that the baby is here, I look forward to taking him to Advanced Vitality so they can help him the same way they helped with my first baby."

Congratulations Wajiha and family!


Introducing Baby Esmae

"So proud to introduce Esmae to the world! She was born January 26th at 11:15pm (allowing me my own birthday, thanks girl!) and weighing 7lbs and 14oz, and 53 cm in length."

Dr. Tara & Payge 2 days before birth

"Also, I had a successful VBAC!! I’m so grateful!"

"Can’t wait for you to meet her.


Thanks for helping prepare her to come into this world!!"


Big Sister & Baby Esmae

Congratulations to Payge, Phil & Isla on the newest addition to your beautiful family!

Clinic Member Spotlight: Chaneze and Baby Angelica!

Chaneze began prenatal chiropractic care with Dr. Tamara at Advanced Vitality during her pregnancy. After giving birth to her beautiful daughter Angelica, she quickly booked her post-partum assessment to help her body heal and recover.

During one of her appointments, Chaneze was discussing developmental milestones with Dr. Tamara and some of her concerns that Baby Angelica wasn't on track.

She developed and sat up after the second adjustment. We definitely saw big improvements in her milestones.

Health Tip of the Month: Healing in Vagus

Did you know that every time you get a chiropractic adjustment, you improve your nervous system - which is responsible for keeping us alive and thriving?

Our bodies are AMAZING and can do so many things that we take for granted.

One important nerve, The VAGUS nerve plays an incredibly important role in your health. Click below to learn more about hacking your VAGUS nerve with Chiropractic Care.


FREE Workshop Series for Post-Partum Health

We are excited to announce that we are participating in an 8-week Workshop Series hosted by Alli Therapy, an organization offering virtual individual and group therapy for post-partum moms.

75 Hard Challenge

Our AV Team Members are now more than a third of the way through their #75HardChallenge that started on January 1, 2022. Follow us on social media to cheer us on, be inspired or even join us in this awesome mental toughness challenge!

This program designed by Andy Frisella is "a transformative mental toughness program that can be scaled for ANYONE."

"This is a program that can change your life ... starting from the inside. Are there physical changes? Yes! But trust me when I say the physical changes you see on the outside are a FRACTION of the results you can earn by completing 75 HARD."

Dr. Tara Sutton

“I’m much happier! I love it and I’m very proud of myself! I love that I get outside EVERY DAY - even in the heart of our Canadian winter. I feel inspired, excited and motivated by seeing the pics and videos of the rest of the team doing it too! Keep up the great work team!

~ Dr. Tara


"I am really enjoying this challenge! The biggest takeaway for me so far is that I have been learning how to better fuel my body and have found a difference in how I feel during and after my workouts. It's been so encouraging and motivating seeing the AV team's accomplishments."

~ Alexa


"Getting outside everyday and exercising has become part of my daily routine. Usually I never go outside during winter! The Advanced Vitality team keeps me motivated - doing this together has made it even more fun!"

~ Maria


"I feel so much happier and better all around! I also feel like I want to workout instead of HAVING to work out."

~ Abby

Follow us on social media to join us, be inspired or to send your words of encouragement!

Each week we put together a short video compilation of our workouts and achievements from the previous week.

Check out our video compilation from Week 4.
