Welcome, Holly! We are ecstatic to have a wonderful new RMT in the house!

Holly Snell is a graduate from the Mount Royal University 2200-hour massage therapy program. Taking interest in the way the body manifests stress; she works to reduce symptoms through relaxation, deep tissue, and therapeutic styles of massage. Her approach to treatment addresses each layer of muscle and connective tissue to work to alleviate tension in an effective way. With the goal of addressing pain at its source, Holly takes care to locate and treat the trigger points and adhesions of the muscles often contributing to client discomfort. In her understanding of the nuances that take a massage from good to great, Holly utilizes client-centered care customizing each treatment to reflect the client’s goals.

In her personal life, Holly values maintaining an active lifestyle. While she enjoys running, lifting weights, hiking and spending time outdoors; she also understands the importance of balance and being in tune with your body. Holly is passionate about supporting her clients in keeping their body moving at its best. She encourages the utilization of simple home care exercises to carry the benefits of each massage beyond the treatment room. Putting client progress first, Holly works with you to develop and work towards your personal wellness goals.

Welcome to our newest Healthflow member, Seyi!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are so lucky to have this lovely lady with us a couple times each week. Although she goes by Seyi, her name is Oluwaseyi Ade-Ojo, and she is originally from Nigeria. She has lived in Canada now for 7 years. In her spare time, she loves to draw and paint watercolour. Although she is already extremely accomplished in her educational endeavours, one day she would love to be an artist. Maybe she'll even paint us something cool for Healthflow?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Seyi also loves watching TV, be it movies, TV shows or documentary (Netflix is life!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are so happy to have you on the team!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Phone and video consults are available, and an easy way to continue your care from the comfort of your home.

Please check online or give us a call for our updated schedules!

We are also offering free drop shipping for supplement/lab orders over $50.

This is an updated announcement to our original pandemic COVID-19 message last Friday.

As mandated by our Regulatory College, all in person appointments are no longer being offered as of March 19th. We have been diligently contacting patients who have had previous appointments scheduled, and switching them to telemedicine. For those patients who already have a pre-existing appointment coming up in the next several weeks, and cannot reschedule, we will honour that time as a telephone consult (telemedicine).

Please call or leave us a message regarding remedies, tests, appointments or questions. We will address them as soon as we can.

Our clinic hours for Naturopathic Medicine (Dr. Cook, Dr. Hislop) telemedicine have been reduced temporarily to the following beginning Wednesday March 25th:

Monday 12pm- 5pm
Tuesday: 12-5pm (Dr. Hislop)
Wednesday 12pm-5pm
Friday 12pm-5pm

Nadine (psychologist) is able to do telephone sessions, please call or look online for her modified schedule.

All physical therapy services with (Sandra and Amy) are currently unavailable as per their Regulatory boards.

To prevent the need to come into the clinic to pick up supplements, we are offering free drop shipments on any orders over $50. If this is not convenient and you would like to pick up your supplements, currently this is still OK but may change. However, we ask to pre-arrange payment in advance over the phone for quick pick-ups, avoiding others and handling the point of sales terminal.

We appreciate your understanding as we look to continue to serve you the best way we can while adhering to social distancing in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.

We wish you and your family good health,

-The Healthflow team @ Healthflow Naturopathic Clinic

COVID - 19 UPDATE - We are still open!

Patients with suspected symptoms of COVID-19 are advised to stay home and call Health Link 811 for instructions.

It is highly advisable that if:

1) You have recently travelled outside of the country, or

2) Are sick with flu-like symptoms (see provided Alberta health link below), Phone consults should be made. If this does not apply, you are welcome to come in for regular appointments.

Alberta Health has a dedicated website with frequent updates and information regarding COVID-19:

At this time to further the safety of our patients and staff, we will be implementing the following:

1. Mandatory hand washing station - All patients/visitors/Staff will be expected to comply upon entering the clinic.

2. Mandatory temperature check - a non-touch forehead thermometer (infrared) will be used to screen all visitors for fever. Those who are demonstrating fever will be asked to return home immediately and call Alberta Health Link for further advice.

We are committed to keeping Healthflow a clean, and safe environment for all of our patients.

If it is necessary, we will comply with any government mandated shutdowns.

In order to reduce the spread of the virus, Healthflow will now offer phone consults for any follow-ups for all pre-existing patients that do not require manual therapy (acupuncture, massage, etc.). That means your follow-ups can be done over the phone where you can either come in and pick up any remedies and tests or have them drop-shipped to your preferred address.

Drop shipments over $50 will be offered free shipping during the pandemic period. Note, some tests need to be done in office and may not be available by drop shipment.

Please contact the clinic if you have any questions! @ Healthflow Naturopathic Clinic

If you are looking for someone to assist you in working towards better function and comfort, then Amy would love to partner with you in doing just that using holistic manual therapy.

Amy works with your whole person to optimize functioning and well-being. She considers all structures and connections in the body, working towards all of them moving in health. Her perspective includes bones and joints (including those of the skull), muscles, fascia, meninges (the tissues lining the spinal cord and cranium), organs and their attachments, nerves, blood and lymph vessels, and the inter-relationship among all these.

After teaching an introductory wellness course at a college overseas, Amy began her career in healthcare as a kinesiologist in 2000. She came to love hands-on therapeutic approaches while becoming a Fascial Stretch Therapist. Amy subsequently completed a 2200 hour massage therapy diploma, and is currently a fifth year student in the five year Osteopathic Manual Therapy program.

Kohlrabi - It’s one of the most delicious veggies you’ve never heard about. This is a brassica vegetable (same family as kale, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts) that is jam packed with nutrients and has the perfect crunch. My favorite way to eat it is raw and chopped up like carrot sticks. This guy was found at !
