What We Offer
Chiropractors are best suited to manage painful issues. The chiropractors we set up at our onsite clinics are particularly adept in dealing with issues commonly experienced among a workforce. From migraines to low back pain or repetitive strain issues, they are well-equipped to get people feeling better quickly, minimizing the impact physical issues have on productivity and mood.
A talented set of hands can work wonders for morale. Using manual therapies to help resolve physical strains and pains, Massage therapists fit well into the workplace, reducing stress and preventing injuries. Our onsite massage therapists cater to your staff with a focus on comfort and convenience.
Your onsite healthcare clinic can include any variety of relevant health disciplines. Among those we typically bring into the workplace are physiotherapists, nurses, naturopaths, yoga and fitness instructors and mental health experts like psychotherapists, psychologists and social workers. In each case, we optimize availability, accessibility, and efficiency, sensitive to the nuances of being onsite during working hours.

Frequently Asked Questions
Though popular in the U.S., onsite health clinics are still relatively rare in corporate Canada. We are sure you have all sorts of questions. And we are happy to answer them all. We really care about operating with transparency and integrity.
How much does it cost?
$0. Nothing. Nada.
Your employees are already supported by healthcare benefits. We are committed to operating your onsite health clinic at no cost to you and no cost to your employees. So we don’t charge anything to set-up or to operate. We bill your insurance provider directly for services rendered on behalf of the patient.
What kind of space do you need?
We don’t need much space, an area of 5 feet by 10 feet is sufficient. It doesn’t need to be a dedicated space either, a boardroom, an office or re-purposed storage area can serve as your onsite clinic for the few hours a week that it would be used. Practitioners bring all necessary equipment with them.
What is the ROI?
We’re glad you ask!
ROI varies from place to place of course, but in the majority of cases, there is a positive impact on bottom line. We often measure increases in productivity, lower levels of absenteeism and a shift in the type of health claims from expensive drug and surgery claims to less expensive wellness care (nutrition, chiropractic, physiotherapy, etc.).

More About Us
Fjord Wellness is a Toronto-based company run by a team of 3 corporate wellness strategists. We recruit doctors and therapists to serve organizations around the country based on their strong interpersonal and communication skills. We’ve been providing onsite services since 2012 and are now serving companies from Coast to Coast in Canada. The approach was inspired through the recognition that preventative care and wellness planning is a significantly more effective strategy than the ‘wait ’till you’re sick and have a serious problem’ strategy. We have found that working with people in a corporate context enables opportunities to assess their health proactively and make plans to improve it, to connect with a better network of healthcare providers, and to incentivize and support lifestyle improvements.
Our experience with each company we’ve worked with has been unique, so our on-site healthcare model remains versatile, shaping up differently for companies in different sectors, different cities and with different cultures. We look forward to exploring the unique challenges and opportunities for your organization.
Fjord clinicians are serving companies in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. We are based in Toronto. To see more specifically where we are in each city, click here.
