In Your Community
The Total Therapy team have wrapped up another exciting year of 2015 with some awesome community events and outreaches.
South Burnaby Metro Club Soccer Tournament
In March some of our therapists volunteered at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex to work at the South Burnaby Metro Club soccer tournament providing first aid and treatment to the young athletes. We hosted a balance board challenge at our tent and the winner got to take home a prize! Our Physiotherapists were able to give insight on what a career in physiotherapy looks like, and gave demonstrations to the teams and their coaches. There were also a few attendees that were able to get onto our complimentary 15-minute massage therapy session with our Registered Massage Therapists.
Global News BC TV Interview – Heather Vint, Registered Physiotherapist
We were on TV! At the end of April, Global News approached Total Therapy to comment on a Health News Segment during their evening news program. Heather Vint, our Registered Physiotherapist stepped up to the plate and provided viewers with her professional knowledge on back pain. We won’t spoil the show, click the video to see us on television!
Open House Fundraiser – BC Cancer Foundation
Total Therapy North Vancouver hosted an Open House and Massage by Donation benefitting the BC Cancer Foundation in May. We received food and beverage donations from our neighbour businesses, Save-On-Foods, Starbucks and Daisy’s Sandwiches and Such. This was a fantastic opportunity for area residents who passed by to learn about what Total Therapy offers and also donate to our BC Cancer Foundation fundraiser. Our therapists spent their day answering questions and providing massages by donation to those passing by.
The Ride – Ride to Conquer Cancer BC
Several members of our Total Therapy team rode the Ride to Conquer Cancer in August. They rode from Vancouver to Seattle the weekend of the huge storm where half of Vancouver lost power for over a day. The event was a success and the riders have recruited more Total Therapy members to join the ride in 2016.
