Christmas Gift Ideas

Author: Dr. Quinte Naturopathic Centre on 21 January 2010

Having a hard time finding the perfect gift for that special someone?

We all want the best for our loved ones, and especially to see them both healthy and happy. In that case, why not consider a gift certificate for an initial naturopathic consultation or follow-up appointment? If the person is stressed, tired, or struggling with a goal they just can’t seem to achieve, there’s also a relaxing and therapeutic Reiki treatment or an Emotional Freedom Technique session. For those you love who are in pain, give a Bowenworks® session and help them on their way to feeling relief. And for those who need or would enjoy a foot care appointment, we have gift certificates for either an initial or regular appointment with our very popular and talented Gretchen Grenke, RPN. Everyone leaves happy after a foot care session!

Our Klean Kanteen stainless steel, BPA-free water bottles come in various colours and sizes, and are perfect stocking stuffers, as well as great for encouraging your loved ones to drink more water on their way to optimal health.

We also now offer our very favourite cookbook, produced by the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, called Simply Healthy. Inside you’ll find practical, healthy, and especially tasty recipes for everyone. One of our patients writes:

Just want to say that I made a batch of your Coriander Chelation Pesto [included in the Simply Healthy Cookbook] last week (added lots of extra garlic) and it is the tastiest thing ever!!! I have put it on baked fish,  soba noodles, and mixed in with chickpeas for a quick and easy lunch —  it is sooooo yummy on everything, and I’ve even just eaten it by the spoonful.

Many of our patients receive Bowen Therapy, and many swear by it. For those enthusiasts, or for those who remain unsure about the procedures and how they can help, you may want to consider our Little Bowen Book, which explains the gentle but efficient technique in simple terms.

So if you’re stuck trying to figure out what to get someone for Christmas, come and pay us a visit. We’re sure your loved ones will appreciate it!
