After five years of maintaining our set pricing, we are restructuring our fees to provide better service to our members, and stay consistent with inflating costs of operation. Starting September 15th, 2021, we will see a slight increase in the cost of chiropractic, massage therapy, and acupuncture treatments. At the same time, we will be reducing the fee for select therapies, such as decompression and laser therapy, when booked in conjunction with a chiropractic appointment.
Massage Therapy guns have arrived at the clinic! Dr. Richard has researched and sourced accessible, affordable massage guns that are now available for purchase at the clinic. At $150, they make a great addition to your health & wellness toolkit, and are a fantastic gift for the massage fanatic in your family.

Boost Your Immune System!
Any threat to our health is heightened when we are tired, stressed, undernourished and inherently sick to begin with. This has always been the case and is being underscored by our current world situation. Daily we are bombarded with news that evokes fear, uncertainty and helplessness which is not exactly a recipe for success when we need our energy and well-being more intact than ever. When this all started in March of 2020, we at Glow created a handbook to help people navigate through the pandemic with a different and more life affirming strategy. If you missed it back then, you can click here to see the health promoting strategies that are just as relevant now as they were back then.
The role that nutrition plays in our overall health is paramount yet can be confusing and downright difficult to apply properly into our lives. The basics will always hold true and take people far.
1. Eat whole and nutritious food. Mainly plant based with lots of colors and free from chemicals and preservatives.
2. Hydrate well.
There are some key nutrients that give us extra immune boosting power that are often tough to get through the foods we eat alone. In attempt to keep things easy and simple for our Glow
family, we have sourced out a supplement strategy that is the best we could find to “cover the bases” with the nutrients that have proved to be most effective for improving immune function.
- Immune Active ™
- Emulsi-D3 Synergy ™
-35 IU per pound of body weight per day
- C+Biofizz ™
-Up to 2000mg per day
- Magnesium Glycinate
-7-10mg per kilogram of body weight per day
Of course, there are all types of other nutrients and supplements that can help bolster our immune function, but the above list will cover all of the fundamentals and then some.
All of these supplements are available at Glow individually or we have conveniently created bundled packages with special pricing for even better value.
