Empower Health - Real Solutions for Real People – Integrated Health

It is a concept with a powerful title. They are an integrated team of medical, naturopathic, alternative, and wellness professionals. We can take comfort in our community that there is a wonderful treatment facility that offers such services, which are integrated and modulated to give you the maximum care possible.


Situated on the second floor of 2555 Commercial Drive, they are just steps from the Commercial-Broadway Skytrain Station. It is welcoming when you enter, much more so than unlike a (sometimes) chaotic clinical office. There is a genuine calming and relaxing energy here.


With an integrated list of medical professionals available, Empowers’ concept is invaluable, because whether you have a simple or a complex condition, you get expert diagnqosis from a diverse group of practitioners to find solutions.


Empower Services


To refer or customize an effective program for someone, they recommend completing an Integrative Health assessment.

Once you get an assessment they have an optional list of therapy sessions that include Medical Services, Hands-On therapies, as well as Mind and Body therapies.
