* OCT 2018 – A note from Ryan:  With the growth of Fix, there have been an increasing volume of administrative tasks that I have been taking care of which has required a greater amount of my time and pulled me away from my clinical practice.   As of this fall, I’ve decided to step away from my clinical practice and focus on the administrative side of Fix.

I recognize that many of my clients have been seeing me for many years, and so this change definitely comes with a tinge of sadness that I won’t be able to continue seeing them.  I really value the relationships that we’ve built over the years and the trust that has been given me to be involved in caring for your health.  Going forward, if you choose stay with Fix and see one of our other great RMTs, I am more than happy to speak with them to relay your care over to make sure that this process is as smooth as possible for you.  I’m also happy to help you choose another therapist who will be a good fit for your needs.  If you would prefer to see an RMT not at Fix and would like some recommendations and/or dialogue with your new therapist, I am happy to help where I can so please just ask.  You can reach me through: fixhealthcarevictoria@gmail.com.

Yours in health,
