With restrictions on gatherings, travel, and indoor dining, shopping and other activities across the country, this holiday season will undoubtedly feel a lot different than seasons past.

The pandemic has created increased stress and anxiety levels for many people. In addition, it has created barriers to accessing important services that can help people take care of their mental and physical health.

Your physical and mental well-being are always our top priority at Propel Physiotherapy. But this year, in particular, we have been reminded of the importance of self-care, and how educating our clients and empowering them to be more active in their own recovery is perhaps the single most important service we can provide.

We are fortunate to be able to continue offering services in-clinic and in the community throughout the holiday season. We are also offering some wellness-focused and pandemic-friendly, healthy holiday gift ideas for the 2020 winter season to help you take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

This holiday season, avoid the malls and Amazon. Give the gift of health.
