Time to run the streets of beautiful Oak Bay for a few hours!

Two women sitting in light brown chairs on reddish hardwood floors. They are both stretching their left legs across their bodies. Both are smiling. It is very bright outside the window.

Flexibility Break

Just a mini-stretch session going on between patients.

A row of three pairs of brown and black blundstones boots on a black rubber shoe mat on a light hardwood floor. They are in front of a wall that is also wood, though a darker brown.

A gold, rectangular gift with a red bow is standing against a cream coloured wall, which also has a bronze cutout of an Arbutus Tree hanging on it. There is a red card standing up in front of and to the right of the gift. Both are on a green marble counter.

Winter in Oak Bay

The holidays are fast approaching!

Cherishing the fall sunshine

Remember when we had lots of blinding sun in the morning despite the season? We do!

In the foreground is a silver gleaming name plaque sitting on a desk that says "Olivia." It is the part in focus. Behind it, and out of focus, is a smiling brown haired woman's head and behind her a bookshelf with yellow files on it.

Team Gratitude

It’s bright and shiny in our clinic today, just like our bright and shiny team!

A brown medium sized dog with his nose close to the camera is on the left, and behind him with her arms around him is a woman to the right. She has strawberry blonde hair, which is blowing in the wind, and is smiling although her mount is partially concealed by the dog's left ear.

Rocky & Sophia

Rocky and Rocky’s best friend Sophia Chadwick saying hello at the clinic today!

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.

Oak Bay half marathon: Feeling the burn and reconnecting with friends

These legs are feeling it after the Oak Bay half and riding all over the Okanogan with coach and Arbutus’ resident chiropractor Mike. Thanks coach! What a great way to catch up with a friend! Thanks for all the well wishes and cheers everyone, and to Human Powered Racing. I’ve missed you Tuna! – Sandy

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.

Max stands smiling and relaxed, holding a white rugby ball in both hands. He wears an orange Adidas jersey, standing in front of lush dark green grass.

Cheering for this guy, and for youth sports!

Here’s a throwback to Tuesday when Veronica was cheering on her son Max’s team, grade 4 Willows School, against St. Michaels University School. Sport makes us happy. HAPPY!

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.

Recovery with Mike Neill from Human Powered Racing

Mike Neill, from Human Powered Racing, demonstrates one of the many exercises he was prescribed as part of his recovery from knee surgery: “I thought of recovery like I thought of preparation for a race and a detailed plan was put in motion.”

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!

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. Thank you Veronica and Olivia!
