YG February Blog

Hands hugging green fresh grass in shape of heartWe here at Yellow Gazebo are loving February as there are many exciting changes happening at the clinic. We are sporting new practitioners, products, and systems – all geared towards making sure we provide the best service possible for our valued patients! We are happy to announce our two new weekend RMTs who started with us, Kristine and Amy. Both have hit the ground running here and are getting rave reviews from their patients; it’s great to have them on our team!

We also have some new products for sale here at the clinic, and they make great gifts for someone else or a treat for yourself (go ahead, you deserve it). Our very own psychotherapist Margotte has created lavender sachets. Each one is completely unique in its own hand-sewn reclaimed linen sachet, and you can put them in with the laundry to keep it smelling fresh, in drawers or even behind your pillow for a relaxing scent as you fall asleep. Another one of our new and exciting products available is the aromatherapy massage lotions that are made in-house here at Yellow Gazebo. These lotions were carefully created with essential oils to evoke feelings of relaxation and tranquility. In addition to buying bottles of these lotions, you can also choose to add them to your regular massage appointment for an extra $5, and zen out even more! Try our sample bottles to find your favorite. (Mine is Bliss, FYI.)

It has always been our aim here at Yellow Gazebo to be involved in the community we are a part of! We always aim to give back both to those who have helped us out so much by helping our business grow, as well as those who haven’t had the opportunity yet to learn about why what we do here is so important. In the coming months, please look out for our practitioners giving talks in community centres in the St.Clair area about various issues involving pregnancy health, including pre/post natal health, fertility, and pelvic health.

We also have some big changes happening at Yellow Gazebo this month and we are excited to bring a whole new level of great service to our exceptional patients! We have been working hard to make our system fully electronic. This means that not only are we going to be saving on a lot of paper – you’re welcome trees – but it will help us make everything easier for you! We want your visits with us to be full of relaxation and tranquility from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave. As with every new system I’m sure there will be a learning process involved, but this committed team will ensure you get the best service possible!

This month’s theme: Heart Health

Podcast: Naturopathy
and High Blood Pressure
Natural methods of managing high blood pressure can go hand-in-hand with other treatment you may already be receiving. Even better, seeking naturopathic care may do more for your heart’s health because it seeks to establish a cure for you rather than to just put a band-aid on the problem. Listen to this podcast with Olja Keserovic, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine.
Our Newest Massage Therapist! We’re proud to introduce the newest member of the YG team, Amy Tracey Sarfati. Known to be “nurturing” in her approach, Amy got her training at Sutherland-Chan, one of the more recognized schools of massage therapy.

The YG Sleep Program
Trouble sleeping? You’re not alone! Thirty percent of Canadians struggle with insomnia at some point and luckily for you, YG has a program with a proven track record for success. Occupational therapist Judith Mendoza uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy alongside naturopathic medicine from Dr. Olja Keserovic to help you get back to resting. You can break the downward spiral of insomnia, and we can help!
