Welcome to Kura Naturopathic Clinic and Registered Massage Therapy in Guelph
Dear Kura Community,
Here in Guelph, Ontario, and all of Canada, we continue the hard, but necessary, work of self-isolation and social distancing in an effort to plank, rather than flatten, the curve.
Our clinic has been physically closed since March 18th. Based on Ministry of Health directives, we have eliminated non-essential care but continue to offer virtual care in those instances deemed essential, including time-sensitive scenarios that may have negative consequences to your health or safety.
In terms of the continuity of your supplement regime, our online dispensary, Fullscript, is on hand to help. Let us know what you need and we will set that up.
It is important to know that naturopathic doctors are not able to test or treat COVID-19, and if you have a fever and/or new onset of cough or difficulty breathing, we are not the practitioners you need to call.
For updated local information, visit the Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health COVID-19 page.
The Guelph COVID-19 assessment centre located at 65 Delhi St. is open daily from 8 am to 8 pm (except Saturday, March 28th for necessary phone upgrades). They request that if you have symptoms, follow one of the following steps to determine what action you should take next:
- Complete the online self-assessment
- Call your doctor for an over-the-phone assessment
- Call Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000
If symptoms are severe, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department.
- Wash your hands with soap and water frequently; if unavailable, use hand sanitizer
- Avoid touching your face
- Excel at self-isolation and social distancing
- Take care of yourself; try to get enough sleep, eat well, keep hydrated, and talk openly about your fears and stresses with family, friends, and trusted professionals
Our multidisciplinary clinic consists of three naturopathic doctors (naturopaths or NDs) and one registered massage therapist (RMT) in beautiful downtown Guelph. We offer support for all ages, including new babes, teens, pregnant people and adults of all ages.
At Kura, we support both people looking to optimize their already good health as well as those looking for change. Our experienced practitioners can approach your healthcare from a whole new perspective and help direct you towards well-being through education and gentle and safe treatments.
Kura is the latin word for healing treatment, as well as care, concern or attention, all definitions we keep in mind as we support our patients in reaching their optimal health.
