Holistic Clinic in SW Calgary

Our goal at Vitamins First is not only to offer exceptional knowledge and service in a retail setting but also to be a resource centre for your health.

With this in mind we have had a clinic space in the lower level of Vitamins First for over 10 years. We realize that in a retail setting there are limitations to the health concerns we are able to deal with. The Vitamins First Holistic Clinic addresses those limitations. The health practitioners in the Clinic are able to offer in-depth, individualized consultations in order to assess and address your health concerns.

Tina Vanderkeemel

Massage Therapist and Reiki Master

My journey has me on a path of teaching people about health and wellness and helping them to heal faster by focusing on the root causes of illness and stress.  My tools are Reiki, therapeutic massage and sound therapy with tuning forks.  Tuning forks can align the 7 main Chakra’, which are key to the proper functioning of the body. Combining these modalities can speed up healing in half the time it would normally take!  

I became drawn to helping others because of my mother, who had MS and left this world to early at the age of 58.  At the time, I did not know how to help her.

My wish for you is to help you find healthy ways to get and be happy and keep your body functioning in balance.  It is my greatest desire to help you with the tools I have learned over the past seven years that can help people regain their health.

Some of the way’s I stay healthy and balanced are hiking, going for drives and hanging out with my cats and my Dad.
