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.
