YOUR HEALTH cares about supporting our community

Many people within our community have struggled at some point in their lives. Luckily, there are great resources like Safetynet in Oakville. (

Safetynet relies on community donations to provide free items and services to financially disadvantaged families. They also provide programming that encourages independence to help break the cycle of poverty.

January and February can be a difficult time for many in the community. To help, YOUR HEALTH is holding an “Essentials” drive in support of Safetynet. We will be collecting feminine hygiene products, new packaged underwear (various sizes for the whole family are welcome), infant diapers (various sizes, larger ones are more in demand), and other hygiene essentials.

Please feel free to arrange a time to drop off new items at the clinic, 1158 Winston Churchill Blvd, Oakville) between February 18th and March 14th. You can contact us at 905.829.0724 or

To thank you for your generosity, we will be raffling off a few prizes. You will receive a ballot when you bring in your donation and the draw will take place on Monday, March 16th.

RAPID relief for tension and pain

Our RMT Weronika recently attended a course introducing a new method –  RAPID – for treating musculoskeletal issues, such as tension and pain. RAPID stimulates the periosteum, a fibrous membrane that covers most bones, to release tension, reduce pain, desensitize tissue, and restore range of motion.

For more information about RAPID, see this handout from the RAPID course. To book an appointment with Weronika for a RAPID treatment, contact the clinic at 905.829.0724 or book an appointment online.
