We are highly trained in many treatment techniques, however none are more important than listening.
As life changes, we all have questions. Our commitment is to be as available to you as possible.
We are here to listen, understand and provide explanations that are relevant to you.

A Naturopathic Doctor is a highly skilled primary health care provider that treats the whole person by finding and addressing the root cause of the illness.
Yes, we work with Medical Doctors.

A Registered Massage Therapist is able to isolate and work specific deep tissues and ligaments to release tension and improve circulation.
We have a standard rate of $95 per visit. This covers most treatments, and there no rushed timeline. We also offer Community Care in an open-pay format on Mondays. For more information on our services and rates, please contact us or stop by for a short chat!
Yes. Most extended health insurance plans cover Naturopathic, Massage Therapy and Nutritional Counselling services.
No. We do not sell supplements at TruChange.
We are here to honestly educate, treat and be accessible to you. Supplementation can be very beneficial, however it is only one aspect of care that may be utilized. In most cases we aim to consolidate or reduce supplementation as much as possible by leveraging proper nutrition. If we do provide a supplementation prescription, we guarantee that it will be unbiased and your choice to pursue it.
On average 4-8 visits.
This is an average of course. True healing is not typical a quick fix. Improvements often come quickly but for your body to heal, a good measure of your situation is to plan for one month of treatment for every year it took for your condition to develop.
Within reason of course. This is in no way an accurate estimation.
Come in and get to know us. It may be hard to express in writing but in person you will quickly come to understand that caring is not an advertising tag line or a sales pitch, it’s why we do what we do. Being a health care worker is not about the pursuit of exotic cars or having short workdays and long vacations, rather we do it because of the reward we get from helping others.
Make no mistake, we have bills as well. Lots of them as any business does. However, as important as it is to our families and employees that we can support them, we have not lost sight on what got us here in the first place. It took eight years of University, Naturopathic College and many more years of building TruChange’s practice to earn the privilege to help those in our community. Since our first days we have been blessed with incredible co-workers and fellow practitioners and now we are in a position to give back to the community. So why offer Community Care Mondays? Because there is a need and we are fortunate enough that we can.
We won”t always have an immediate answer, but we will research and deliver a relevant answer to you. We take pride in this because we believe that answering your questions is as important as any treatment. The cost of this is sometimes patience of an hour or a day, but we strongly believe that this is how to provide exceptional personalized care.
Our commitment to you is difficult to convey but speak to a friend or family member in the community who we work with and you will understand what this means. We do more than treat you. We prepare for you, support you and we care about your health. Our commitment is to you and your wellbeing.
We take an active involvement in your health. Follow-up emails, quick check ups, drop-in follow-ups and being accessible by phone and email to answer your questions is a simple but revolutionary approach to your care. We are here to help you when you need us.
Nutrition is the cornerstone of good medicine.
