Regulated Health Care Professionals return to the studio

June 3, 2020

On May 26th, the Chief Medical Officers of Health (CMOH) released changes to Directive #2 for Health Care Providers, which originally required all regulated health professionals to stop or reduce non-essential services. Regulated health care professionals, when all necessary precautions and protocols are in place to protect patients/clients and themselves, gradually and carefully may begin providing all services, including non-essential services. Please note that because Osteopathy is not regulated, Osteopathic services are not permitted to begin at this time.

Treating Seasonal Allergies With Quercetin

April 6, 2020
