Healthy Steps Pedorthic Clinic in Barrhaven: Exploring the Many Benefits of Compression Therapy

Certified pedorthists Derek Gilmer and Richard May at Healthy Steps Pedorthic ClinicCompression socks or stockings are worn by a wide variety of people from pilots, flight attendants, runners, and nurses to pregnant women, people recovering from surgery, and people otherwise at risk for blood clots in their legs or those suffering from varicose veins.  If you have a job where you sit or stand for prolonged periods of time throughout the day, you could benefit from compression legwear.

Compression socks are specially designed to apply pressure to the legs allowing blood vessels to work more effectively by helping the blood move through veins and back to the heart. Aiding circulation also helps oxygen move throughout the body helping prevent muscle cramps and other injuries.

The professionals at Healthy Steps, Barrhaven’s original Pedorthic Clinic, are certified to measure and fit compression stockings.

Ask your Doctor if you would benefit from compression therapy and make an appointment with one of their certified fitters. If you already wear compression stockings, it may be time for a new pair before your health benefits run out for the year.

Drop by the clinic at 4100 Strandherd Drive, Unit 202 (2nd floor) in Barrhaven.  Call 613-823-2522 or request an appointment online at EP

Caress Electrolysis: Silky Smooth Skin is just a Caress Away

Kathryn, the owner of Caress, along with other professionals from CaressSome people have skin and hair issues that impact their self-esteem. Kathryn, owner of Caress Electrolysis was one of those people, but she decided early in life to do something about it.

“After trying a variety of temporary methods of hair removal I decided to give electrolysis a try. Overjoyed with the results of electrolysis, I not only got rid of my unwanted hair permanently, I also gained more confidence. I was so delighted by the results that I decided to pursue a career in electrolysis.”

“I started working at an established salon but soon decided to open my own clinic where I had the liberty to operate in a more professional manner and purchased state of the art technology.”

“Clients often inform me how pleased they are with the results and only wished they had started treatments sooner.  Don’t make the same mistake, start now.”

We at Caress can permanently remove unwanted hair on any area of your body regardless of the colour of your skin or hair. Electrolysis is the ONLY method of permanent hair removal.

Why throw away your money on waxing and depilatories only to have the hair regrow? Electrolysis is a lifetime investment.

Caress Electrolysis - young woman doing yogaMost of the staff at Caress Electrolysis, has been successfully performing electrolysis in the Ottawa area for over 30 years. The team of professional certified Electrologists are constantly exploring breakthroughs in permanent hair removal to ensure the best results.  Caress offers the highest standard of sterilization and is one of the few clinics in Ottawa that employs Zeiss microscopes to increase the precision of insertions, providing more gentle treatments with a faster conclusion.

Caress Electrolysis offers a FREE consultation. An Electrologist will explain the procedure, answer any of your questions and provide you with a sample treatment. As an informed consumer you will have all the information you need to decide whether to proceed with treatments.

Testimonial by Christopher

The environment at Caress is spotless and inviting. The equipment used is state of the art and clearly a lot of care has been put into making the experience relaxing. The staff is friendly and professional.

Being a man I was unsure of how awkward I would feel walking into an electrolysis clinic but as it turns out I had nothing to worry about. On my first visit, Kathryn gave me a detailed explanation of what’s involved and how it works. She offered to treat a small area so I could experience what the discomfort level would be. I found it very acceptable but more importantly found her discretion and nonjudgmental manner to be a real stress reliever. I can’t imagine how the

experience could be any more relaxing and professional. Her years of experience inspire confidence that you’re in good hands. I look forward to my appointments and the great conversations we always have. If I had found Caress, and Kathryn in particular, I would have been a customer many years sooner and would recommend Caress to anyone without hesitation.


Caress Electrolysis is conveniently opened weekdays 9:00 to 8:00 and Saturdays 9:00 to 4:00.

Please visit for more information or call 613 825 2299. Caress Electrolysis is located at 35 Larkin Dr., off Greenbank Rd.  EP

Get relief from the pain of everyday stress

The pace of life rarely slows down for busy people. It’s always ‘go go go’. At the end of the day we hit the sack and crash, only to wake the next morning realizing that our bodies ache.

But we have to stick to our routines and time frames so we get up and get going again, regardless of the pain.

Over a few weeks repeating this process can add up to some serious physical grief! The truth is that if we actually want to keep this same pace up for the long term, we need to make time to take care of ourselves.

That’s why I suggest that you come to try myofascial trigger point release.

I am Jeff Bergin and I run Sport Performance Institute. I spend time finding the source of your aches and pains and then I help to remove them one by one. Even the ones that you didn’t realize were there.

Most sessions average about 20 minutes and the release of pressure and range of motion can be immediate.

Just know that this is not massage!! It is a personal, targeted approach to pain relief.

Triggers are painful and my job is to remove them. If you think that you have tried everything and nothing works — give me a call at

613-614-4676 or email to

Book now for only $40 per 20-minute session.

Marketplace gets Jeff’s message out

It’s important that businesses reach their target markets with information vital to their success.

Jeff Bergin at Sport Performance Institute has found the right formula in advertorial messages in Marketplace News.

It’s all about being able to tell your story your own way, says Jeff.

“Marketplace News helps my clients understand what myofascial trigger point release therapy can do to help them reduce pain from everyday living.”

As the greater Capital Region’s only publication featuring informative articles about the quality products and services of its advertisers, Marketplace News is a valuable tool for businesses looking to reach new customers.

For readers, Marketplace News is a reliable source to find the best merchants and service providers in the area.

“Marketplace News gives my clients all the information they need to make an informed decision about treatment.” – Jeff Bergin, Sport Performance Institute.  EP

Healthy Steps Pedorthic Clinic in Barrhaven

Certified pedorthists Derek Gilmer and Richard May at Healthy Steps Pedorthic Clinic

Helping You Walk Away from Foot Pain

Fall can be a painful season for feet! During the summer months, people are wearing sandals, flip-flops, and walking around barefoot. The transition into a more confined shoe or boot can be uncomfortable, even a cause of painful bunions. Also, all those months of wearing shoes with poor support can start to take its toll.

Pain is not normal and not something you have to live with. At Healthy Steps Pedorthic Clinic in Barrhaven, Certified pedorthists Derek Gilmer and Richard May can assess and treat many lower limb injuries and conditions like bunions, Plantar Fasciitis, Osteoarthritis and more. They provide personal advice to see if custom orthotics are necessary or whether an over the counter orthotic will do the job. If a custom orthotic is required, it can be expertly made on site using a combination of expert craftsmanship and the highest of technology.

September is a great time to check your current footwear and orthotics which may need to be refurbished or replaced. Perhaps it’s time to book a re-assessment. Pain relief may even be as simple as changing your footwear. At Healthy Steps, they stock a wide range of shoes, sandals and athletic footwear and until September 30th, many models have had their prices slashed. This is a rare clearance sale and a perfect opportunity to treat your feet to some comfy footwear.
