Thrive Therapeutics is located in downtown Campbell River. Registered Massage Therapists Kim Howes and Kathryn Kirkwood met in 2010 and recognized a mutual passion for patient-centered care as well as keen interest in prenatal work. This collaborative vision has led them to open Thrive. The clinic strives to create a warm and inviting atmosphere that encourages unwinding and healing. Our therapists are passionate about their work and do their utmost, through treatment, home-care exercises and suggestions for daily living to help their patients achieve wellbeing.
Massage therapy is a healing modality that has been used for centuries to treat a wide variety of ailments. Both chronic and acute injuries, postural imbalances, chronic diseases, limited range of motion, pain and even psychological conditions such as anxiety and depression have all been shown to be ameliorated by massage.
Dietitians are experts in food and nutrition. They keep up-to-date on the latest science in nutrition and health and enable their clients to make healthy food choices for their lifestyles. Health conditions, activity levels and individual preferences are all considered when creating specific plans for each client to optimize their nutritional intake. Registered dietitians work with their clients to help define, achieve and maintain individual, realistic goals.
The therapists at Thrive Therapeutics believe that treatment should always be patient-centered. Our goal is to work with our clients to achieve effective treatments that include home-care suggestions and discussion about their individual lifestyles to allow them to have an increased knowledge of and more control over their health.
