Take a break from the old standard, and let HealthView offer a few ways to pamper yourself and your sweetie this Valentine’s Day with gifts that won’t leave you with regret or wilting flowers a week later.
If you or your partner are active – you know how tight and tense your muscles can get. Sometimes a massage is just the perfect solution to ease a tired body and mind. Not only is it a great way to relax, but it could increase his/her performance in the gym. If you aren’t as active as you like, a massage by an RMT will help to loosen those muscles and make you feel a thousand times better! A HealthView gift certificate is the perfect solution for it! Our Registered Massage Therapists will find the best way to ease those aching muscles! Why not consider a couples massage? You could BOTH walk out feeling relaxed and energized. Call us at 905-634-VIEW to find out how you can get one!
Now, this is only meant with the best intentions! For a lot of people, fitness trackers are a good way to monitor your journey and help you understand just how active you are. They don’t have to be expensive – and can assist you in keeping “track” of your steps, calories burned and even the amount of restful sleep you are getting.
Consider something as simple as a nice meal – prepared at home. Perhaps something a little more special than the usual fare though. Some nutritionists suggest you go “lean & green” – meaning a meal consisting of a lean protein like salmon or flank steak, coupled with some broccoli, green beans or cauliflower.
The couple that stretches together – stays together? Studies show that yoga can increase your flexibility, strength and cardiovascular function. It can also improve your mood – which is NEVER a bad thing, especially when the February blues start to set in.
Sure it can be cold outside, but there is no better time to find a local skating rink and take part in a great low impact workout together! Make sure you stretch beforehand, and dress according to the conditions – but its a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and each others company. And afterwards – make sure you grab some hot chocolate with a few extra marshmallows!
Sometimes we tend to think that orthotics are used by just an older population, but the fact is – ALL AGES can benefit from them!
Custom orthotics are different than the ones you typically buy over-the-counter in a store, because they are specifically made for YOUR unique feet. They are a simple insert that can be placed in your footwear with ease.
If it hurts to walk, we have a problem. When serious issues have been ruled out, orthotics can help, by taking the stress off painful areas of your feet.
Orthotics can’t fix a fallen arch, but they CAN reposition your foot to make it easier to walk and reduce the chance of injury.
If you stand for long periods of time, you need the extra support because your muscles get sore. Orthotics are a helpful way to give your feet a break.
Believe it or not, if you suffer from diabetes you have an increased risk of corns and calluses. Those ailments hurt your skin and if left untreated, can lead to bigger problems. Orthotics can ease the pressure on those areas.
Don’t worry – it doesn’t hurt! We examine your feet, legs, hips and lower back to determine if there are any underlying problems. We then take a computerized scan of your feet to see how you walk. And finally, we take a foam impression of your feet to make sure the orthotic is tailored to YOU.
