Three class vases of flowers with a bottle of red wine in between them and four cards in front of them are standing against a light brown wall on a dark wooden surface.
A card is standing on a green marble countertop with a cream coloured wall with a bronze Arbutus Tree cutout hanging on it in the background. The card is white with a pink bike painted on it. The bike also has pink flowers in the handle bar basket. There is also a bright pink ribbon tied in a bow at the top of the card. It is oriented horizontally.

Celebrating a Fantastic Human Being: Happy Birthday Olivia!

It is our lovely Office Manager’s birthday! Thank you for being such a ray of sunshine and putting smiles on

A man in black shorts, a grey tshirt, and a black baseball cap is lying on his back on a cherry coloured hardwood floor. He is in an office with cream coloured walls and there is a model skeleton and eye chart on the wall behind him. He has his right leg bent with his knee up and foot on the floor. His left knee is also bent, but the leg is in the air and he is rolling a large blue exercise ball up and down the wall with his left floor. He is also in blue runners. The Arbutus logo of a blue arrow in a blue circle is edited onto the bottom right.

Constant Improvement: Dry Needling

Sandy went to Vancouver this weekend for her dry needling studies!

A woman with long brown hair is smiling widely and holding a wrapped bouquet of yellow daisies in front of her. She is indoors in front of a white wall with a bronze cutout of an arbutus tree hanging behind her.

Flowers for Libby

Libby, we’re holding these hostage until you arrive today!

A field of purple, blooming camas with tall trees behind it and on either side. The trees have long, branches that curve over the flowers and green foliage on top. The sky beyond them looks bright and grey.

Camas Fields

The Camas is really on fire right now – so beautiful!

A large group of people running around a bend in the road with race numbers pinned to their stomachs. They are running on the road, and there are green trees and green grass on either side. The sky is a dark, cloudy grey.

Times Colonist (TC) 10k!

Congratulations all runners and walkers and participants in the TC 10k on Dallas Road!

Three paddleboarders are paddling on the ocean in a row across the center of the photo. The water is quite calm with small rippling waves on the surface. The background is a cityscape with tall multistorey buildings. The sky is grey and cloudy with a touch of pink on the right.
Two women slightly right of center are standing behind a bar like marble reception desk with a green, blue, white, brown, and grey rectangular abstract art piece behind them. The woman in front is looking slightly to the left and her smile looks slightly reluctant. Her arms are crossed on the desk. The woman behind her seems to have her arms around the woman in front, and she is smiling widely. She is slightly further right.

The Luminous Veronica and Olivia

Semi-reluctant but smiling faces at the Arbutus Health Centre today! I’m so inspired to be working with these luminous beings.

A man on a bike in black pants and a dress shirt is leaning his right elbow on a steel railing and holding a cell phone to his ear with his right hand. The other hand is on the handle bars of the bike. He has sunglasses on. Behind him is a body of water with trees on the other side. The sky is blue with white streaks of cloud.

Friday Night Bikes

Friday evening on the horse. Thanks Jay Vand! Have a good weekend everyone!

A woman's head and neck are closest to the camera and in the bottom right. She is wearing a black and white baseball cap, has brown hair pulled back into a pony, and is looking out to the left away from the camera. The background is a mountainous landscape covered in evergreen trees, and there are bodies of water visible to the right. The sky is blue with a few white clouds.

Hikers Unite: Mount Maxwell

The view from the top of Mount Maxwell in Mount Maxwell Provincial Park on Salt Spring Island! Thanks Kristen!

A woman standing to the right is the focus and we can see from the chest up. The right half of her face is visible, and she has cream coloured glasses, short blonde hair, and pursed lips. She looks 60 to 70 years old. She right arm takes up the left half of the photo and is flexed. Out of focus behind her is a red awning with the Arbutus logo of an arrow in a circle printed on it in white. The sky is blue and clear.

The MVPs

Here’s to the people who are athletes in the context of their own lives. They race. They lift. They go

Looking down on a large open paved area with red umbrellas open on the bottom left, three runners in light blue shirts above center on the right, and then blue ocean at the top after the edge of the paved space. It looks bright and sunny, although the sky is not in the photo.

Runners Unite

Sunny day at the harbour!

Looking down a water way with mountains in the distance, tall evergreen trees on both sides, and a paved walk way on the left. The sky is light pink with the sun behind the trees to the left, and then near the top of the photo the sky is more of a grey and blue mix.

Paddlers Unite

Stunning evening for a paddle!

A woman to the left and a man on a silver ladder to the right are both wearing matching blue long sleeved shirts and tying up a yellow canoe. There are a stack of tied up canoes in the background as well, and we get a glimpse of a glass walled building behind those other boats.
