I can’t believe 8 years have gone by since I initially started at Frackson Health Care.  I will forever be grateful to the Frackson’s and staff for everything they did for me to help me grow as a person and practitioner.

Today I am very excited to announce that on July 3rd , 2018, I will be moving Chiropractic practices to a new space at 888 Short Street, Victoria, to join Total Body Health. The clinic consists of a talented team of Chiropractors, Registered Massage Therapists, a Naturopathic Doctor and an Athletic Therapist.

It is approximately 1.5 kms away from the current office.  The new clinic is in a central location, across the street from the Uptown Mall between Lazy Boy Furniture and Shades of White Bridal Store. The location has an excellent bus route service and ample free parking on site.

With the expanded services at Total Body Health, I am excited at this opportunity to further help you achieve your health and wellness goals.  I will continue to offer the same high quality movement based Chiropractic care at the new location, but will also have access to and be offering 2 additional healing therapies: Class IV Laser therapy and Focused Shockwave therapy.   I also have access to an 800 sq. ft. rehab space for patient sessions.

For your convenience,  the clinic offers online booking and direct billing to many extended medical plans.  For more information on the clinic and many of our other services, I encourage you to visit the website:   www.totalbodyhealthvictoria.com

If you would like to book appointments for July and onwards, please contact the office at:

250-477-5776

888 Short St.

Victoria BC, V8X 2V5

I look forward to seeing you in the new clinic and appreciate your patience through this transition.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Kavan Yu

Dr. Yu has a strong interest in soft-tissue injuries in relation to chiropractic care. This has led him to complete various courses in soft-tissue injury related treatment. Some of these courses include certifications in Active Release TechniquesGraston Instrumented Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization Technique, FAKTR-PM or Functional and Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation, and Motion, and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization. Furthermore, he constantly strives to better serve his patients by increasing his knowledge base through continuing education courses, workshops and conferences.

Dr. Yu enjoys treating patients of all ages for various neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions ranging from acute injuries, to repetitive strain injuries, to supportive and wellness care.  He also has a special interest and knowledge base in athletic injuries, and enjoys taking on challenging cases. He believes in a well-rounded, patient-centered approach to care and utilizes an array of techniques, including: chiropractic adjustments, soft-tissue/myofascial mobilization, functional movement screens, rehabilitation exercise, education, and lifestyle modifications.
