Taking Care in 2015

Well, it’s the new year and it’s been a little while since I’ve blogged. Mostly because December is so nuts in the salon, I’m putting in extra hours to accommodate all the clients who are wanting to get “Fresh and Fierce” for parties, holidays away or just their regular maintenance before travelling home to spend time with family. Now that it’s a new year, everyone is talking about getting back into routine, healthy habits and also just getting through the rest of winter (always easier when there’s a hot holiday on the horizon, am I right?) and one of the things I find frequently falls to the wayside when we are thinking self-care is body treatments – I’m talking massage, acupuncture, and chiropractic. Or any professional you see for paramedical treatment. I bet there’s a few disciplines out there that I haven’t tried. One place we recommend over and over again is Atlas Health Therapy, located just behind us and down half a block on Langley Street. Tamara Kitzmann, Atlas’s owner, is a good friend of ours and an amazing RMT/Acupuncturist. Her staff is wonderful, and they offer an array of different treatments to keep you going! From Atlas’s website: “Atlas Health Therapy is a multidisciplinary health care centre located in the heart of down town Victoria BC. We wish to provide you with an approach to health care that encompasses all aspects of being, where mind, body and spirit are at the heart of all we offer.” Tamara doesn’t currently have a chiropractor on staff, so she sent me to see Simon Pearson at Fix Healthcare (in the Atrium building on Johnson Street) and I was really impressed. Simon will get you into alignment in no time! From Fix’s website: Fix Healthcare is a multidisciplinary healthcare facility offering chiropractic, massage therapy, acupuncture, physiotherapy, pilates and yoga. Our facility provides a team of healthcare experts all in one location. So, take care of yourself – before that new year’s resolution has you limping from a running injury or, just to keep maintaining – Atlas and Fix sure take great care of us! Krista
