COVID-19 Update

To our valued patients,

Like the rest of country, we have been closely monitoring the progression of the COVID-19 virus and the advice of Canada’s public health authorities. As a clinic, we have implemented changes to focus on the health and safety of our therapists, administration, and patients.

However, as the virus continues to spread in communities across our country, and our government takes a firmer stance on non-essential trips out of the home, we are forced to consider more extreme measures aimed at reducing the spread of the virus and the demand on our health care system. As physiotherapists and massage therapists, we work in very close contact with our patients, and we see many patients each day. In these types of settings, the potential risk of transmission is elevated, and we need to do our part limiting the spread of this virus and protecting vulnerable populations in our community.

For that reason, we are writing to inform you that we have made the very difficult decision, following recommendations from the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, to close our clinics effective Wednesday March 18th. We will be responding to e-mails to help reschedule appointments and ensure your immediate questions are answered until we can see you again. As of right now, we anticipate remaining closed until Monday March 30th, at which time we will re-evaluate based on current guidelines set forth by the provincial and federal governments, and our physiotherapy and massage therapy associations.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this difficult time, and hope to have your continued support and loyalty as we navigate the upcoming weeks.
Should you have further questions or concerns, please contact the clinic at info@physiolife.ca. Alternatively, to reach your physiotherapist or massage therapist directly, please see below:

COVID 19 NOTICE

Update: July 1, 2021

As the Province of BC enters Step 3 of the restart plan, things will mostly remain status quo at PhysioLife.  Changes are as follows:

  1. based on guidelines published by the College of Massage Therapists of BC, masks inside massage treatment rooms are no longer mandatory.  Masks do not need to be worn if and only if both patient and therapist mutually agree.  If you would like your therapist to wear a mask, they will.  If your therapist would like their patients to wear a mask, we kindly ask for your cooperation.  Masks must still be worn in all common areas of the clinic, so please keep bringing your masks!
  2. Our waiting room will be open on a limited basis (yay!)

All other COVID-19/communicable disease guidelines remain in place, and can be viewed on our website.  Our profession is governed by the College of Physical Therapists of BC and the College of Massage therapists of BC.  The rules and regulations passed down from these Colleges supersede any WorkSafeBC requirements which are imposed on the general population.  Therefore, we can only relax restrictions once our Colleges approve.  Our setting is a healthcare setting which is a high risk environment, even if masks are worn.  As the summer progresses, we hope to receive new guidance from our Colleges which will allow us to ease some of our other protocols.  However, we will only do so if we believe it will not interfere with the health and safety of our therapists, staff, and patients.

Thank you for your continued support.  We hope everyone stays healthy.
