Discover yourself on Salt Spring Island....

Salt Spring Island encourages a strong alternative health community.

Reiki, cranial-sacral therapy, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, healing touch, therapeutic massage, reflexology, on island mainstream medical care.

An excellent hospital facility on Salt Spring is connected with two hospitals in Victoria and one in the Cowichan Valley.

It's interesting that there is a Buddhist monastery on Salt Spring and also an Ayurvedic centre.

The tranquility and the natural beauty of Salt Spring Island seem to encourage a seeking of optimum health.

More information? Call me.

There is a wellness centre in Ganges Village that offers space for health practitioners to offer their services. Others have studio offices on their properties (home occupations are encouraged on the Gulf Islands).

Organic local foods, movement classes that encourage fitness, peaceful surroundings that nurture a meditative pause...Salt Spring calls forth an individual responsibility to seek healthy choices.
