Getting fearless and ready for change with fall

Fall is a time we often associate with changing colours, pumpkin spice and big cozy scarves- things that offer us comfort. On the other hand, with the days get shorter and the weather gets colder and many of us can’t help but fall (no pun intended) into a sluggish state of “it’s too cold outside”, “I hate this weather” and “bring the summer back”.

This season brings a big reminder that change is a vital part of life. Weather comes and goes, plans change, goals and dreams shift directions. And yes, change can be scary but how can we fear something when we’re ready for it? There will always be unexpected roadblocks along the way. It doesn’t matter what they are, it matters how prepared you are for them!

Don’t fear change, be ready for it.

This fall, we want to inspire you to break away from your comfort zone and try something new.

That’s why we have jam-packed November with some EPIC community events to get you into a new groove.

And don’t forget to take care of your body and soul while you are at it! Our Health Practitioners are ready to get you prepped for the upcoming winter and make sure you feel at your EPIC best.

Holistic Nutrition | Tuesdays + Wednesdays

We pearch holistic nutrition because we believe in the values of eating healthy, whole foods as close to their natural state as possible. We love all things organic, local, unprocessed, and unrefined. But incorporating it into your life is harder than it looks. What foods count as “holistic”? What brands should I avoid? Do you find yourself getting stressed out about putting together meals on busy weeknights? If you’ve been meaning to eat better but not sure how, lack some inspiration with your meals, or keep hitting that weight loss plateau, you’ve got to meet our Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Maranda Carvel. She is a super-mom of four and firmly believes that whole foods and holistic nutrition should be simple and easy to be effective. Start by booking a 15 minute call with Maranda to learn how she can help to raise your food game to a new level. Contact us today online or by phone 613-695-5885 to set up your complimentary session.

Naturopathy | Mondays + Wednesdays

Feel tired and fragile too often despite sleeping and eating well, and keeping active? Or does your body just feel off from time to time? Naturopathy is a great way to figure out what is missing in your daily life, such as certain vitamins and nutrients, or what choices you are making that might not be the best for your body. Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It helps to treat all forms of health concerns- from pediatric to geriatric, from irritating symptoms to chronic illness, and from the physical to the psychological. We work with two incredible Naturopathic Doctors who are all about finding the root cause of the problem and eliminating it, rather than just putting a patch on it. Book your appointment with one of our Doctors online or by phone at 613-695-5885.

Energy Healing | Fridays

So often when we think of health we focus solely on the physical. We want everyone this fall to look beyond that and examine their mental and emotional health as well. Energy Healing is like a massage for your soul. It is the epitome of self-care, helping you to remove emotional or mental blockages that may be holding you back from living your potential and a truly healthy life. Take part in a one-on-one session with our in-house Energy Healer, Catherine Hull, to see what this is all about and leave feeling a little lighter and more positive! Book your appointment online or by phone at 613-695-5885.


Take a chance this fall with one (or more!) of these events and our health services. Be fearless this fall! We guarantee there is nothing to lose in trying and everything to gain.
