Inbody 270 Assessment
Gemini Wellness InBody analysis uses state of the art direct segmental multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance to examine the composition of your body. Simply put, it reveals your percentage of body fat, muscle distribution, and body water balance so we can best determine how to help you reach your goals.
Our bodies are complex structures made of many different components such as water, fat, and muscle. A simple number on the scale is misleading and not an indicator of health, PERIOD. In other words, toss your scale and we will look at what is really going on from the inside out!
Type 2 Diabetes Support
The diagnoses of type 2 diabetes is on the rise. It is assumed to be a result of the growing obesity epidemic. Being overweight is a major risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes. Are you interested in learning a healthier way to eat to control your blood sugar?
We are attacking the disease with a different approach focussing on its root: insulin overproduction. Reducing dietary carbohydrates helps keep insulin levels low. Lower insulin levels mean the body is able to use stored fat for energy and the client loses weight. Blood sugars drop and we see that physicians are able to reduce medication doses as a result. It’s a completely different approach to the problem of diabesity, and it’s one that we should be offering far more frequently. We are proud to be able to offer a multidisplianary approach to diabetes management and work together with your md, speicialist and pharmacist.
Aside from the nutritional component, patient education, counseling, and support are also critical to achieving sustainable weight loss. You have probably already heard from your physician to make changes but maybe you are unsure how, or cannot stay accountable long term. Let us help make this journey easier. Your success is our success!
Many of us love cooking and eating at home, but sometimes it’s difficult to plan ahead and make the meals we really want and need.
This never-ending time-crunch can cause us to eat at odd times, or simply just eat unhealthy quick meals that aren’t entirely satisfying. Are you working on trying to change to a healthier lifestyle but not sure what to cook.
A solution to this situation has arrived! To support our current and past clients as well as promote accessible healthy eating in rural BC and after many requests, we are bringing food prep and meals to go to Ashcroft.
Birth Doula Services
Choosing a Doula who will be present at your birth is an important decision that is shaped by many factors; including experience, training, and philosophy of care. Contact me to set up a time to meet, either at my office in Ashcroft, or in a neutral location that is convenient for you. A no obligation initial consultation will allow you to learn more about doulas, as well as my experience and philosophy on birth. This meeting carries no obligation and I am happy to answer any question you and/or your birth supports may have. Although I do provide doula support packages to women within 100km of Ashcroft, Initial Consultations are generally held closer to my clinic centre. However, I am happy to coordinate an appointment if I am in one of the outlying communities.
Postpartum Doula Services
Babies are adorable. They’re also exhausting. Frequent wake-ups and odd schedules might be normal, but to a postpartum parent it can feel overwhelming. Your friends joke about getting used to having no sleep, but that doesn’t really have to be the way it is—does it?
Not with us, it doesn’t! Postpartum and infant doula care means having an expert with you to help you decode those mysterious baby cries, help achieve the perfect breastfeeding latch or formula ratio, and—your soon-to-be favourite part—take care of baby while you catch some serious Z’s.
Pre-Post Natal Programming Services
Our Pre/Post Natal Outreach program aids in providing additional supports to communities using the CPNP foundations throughprofessional Doula support. Doulas are trained community health workers who provide physical, emotional, and informational support to pregnant people; before, during and after childbirth. The birth, postpartum and outreach doula services offered by Gemini Wellness Services, have a unique ability to reach and work with communities who may be affected by inequity. As trusted members of the communities they serve, a doula is an intermediary between the health care and social services systems, and community members, helping to ensure that services are provided in a culturally appropriate way.
Corporate Wellness Program
Corporate wellness cannot be treated as a band-aid, and you definitely won’t be able to find it in a fitness app. Engagement, motivation, support, and strategy are the keys to a successful program. An effective corporate wellness program though, takes more than just an a-la-carte menu of popular classes or exercise sessions. Employees need something that fits into their current lifestyles. The key to ensuring effectiveness and habit formation is to create a program where employees are able to follow their regular routine and still achieve significant outcomes, starting with incremental lifestyle changes.
Community Health & Wellness
We are fortunate to have a lovely communal area where we can offer an array of workshops for all of our programming, in the Social Room, at the Ashcroft HUB. Whether you are a current client, or just looking for some additional support services and information, we encourage you to attend one of our workshops. It is always a warm and friendly environment, open to all people of all ages. Many of them are free!
