If you only have a few minutes, then read our mission,
it is where our passion comes from.
Our mission is to serve our community with love, education, and life enhancing care so that they may have the health and life of their dreams.
We carefully created this mission to reflect our principles. To break it down:
Serve our community we want to help you, your family and your friends, please share your magic healing moments with them.
With Love we put love first in our mission because it lays the foundation for healing.
Education this is reflected in everything we do, from our one-on-one discussions to specialty workshops on a variety of topics. Outside of our office, you may meet us at an expo, athletic event, community outreach or even your workplace. We even rent movie theaters to host health documentaries for you and your family to enjoy.
Life enhancing care this is what defines our clinic. Nothing we do has any negative side effects, all our equipment is non-invasive and we only focus on enhancing your life.
Health and life of your dreams Have you heard you are going have to live with it, or its part of growing old? We get you to dream big by showing you whats possible.
At Vita (in Latin, means life) we encourage an in-depth approach to healthy living. Our philosophy gravitates toward a holistic (whole person) look at your health which combines elements of the mind, body and spirit.
1. Emphasis on the fact that every person has the ability to heal themselves and this requires both repetition and time.
2. Recognition that there is good and bad stress, and that this stress affects your ability to heal.
3. Understanding the cause of illness in order to eliminate it, rather than simply treating the symptoms.
4. The importance of monitoring progress closely throughout treatment using the latest technology.
5. A patient-centered, hands-on approach focused on influencing function through structure.
6. To surround ourselves with disciplines that complement each other and people who are leaders in their profession.
7. To recognize when we are not your only health team member and to give the appropriate referral when indicated.
As Vita doctors and therapists, we choose to continue our education at the highest level. Our Chiropractors take a minimum of 40 hours of seminars and 60 hours of self-learning each year. This is far beyond the amount of continued education required by our association, the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO). In addition, we meet as a team 2 hours per week. This time is used to collaborate on patients, practice technique and discuss future outreaches. Further, the chiropractors are required to have a professional coach. We encourage this because every great athlete became great because of coaching. This drive to better ourselves and hold each other accountable is what truly sets us apart.
Vita health clinic was established in 1996 and has been located in Delisle Court at Yonge and St. Clair ever since. Started by Dr. Scott Levine, we have grown to a team of 16 plus doctors, therapists and assistants. We thank our community for entrusting us with the health of them and their families, which has allowed us to serve over 10,000 people.
We have seen the benefits of an integrative approach under one roof. Going from a Chiropractic adjustment that starts to establish better neuromuscular control and then walking into your massage improves the ability for the therapist to truly target muscular trauma. This improves the results of both disciplines and can establish quicker harmony in the body.
Most importantly, the doctor and therapist communicate their findings with each other, allowing for each expertise to shine when caring for your health. This integrative approach is effective with our chiropractors, massage therapists, naturopath and acupuncturist. Your Vita team is well versed in all of these disciplines to help you decide what is right for you.
Vita uses the most advanced technology (some only available at Vita) to assess and track your health. The Biovizion Medical Imaging System and the InsightTM Millennium Substation give the doctors radiation-free tools to analyze and track posture, assess your nervous system function and analyze stress on the muscular system.
Our newest additions are an EEG unit to help understand brain function and brain stress as well as a force plate to evaluate balance and your center of gravity. We further measure your progress throughout all care programs. This allows us to move away from pain towards improved function.
MULTIPLE DISCIPLES, MULTIPLE TALENTS, INCREDIBLE RESULTS:
Vita is a center of excellence. Award winning chiropractors, massage therapists, a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) doctor, and a naturopathic doctor fill the rooms. Each doctor has taken many courses that have helped diversify the conditions that they care for. Each therapist continually improves their skill level, offering solutions that are found only at Vita. More details can be found in each of their bios.
It is said that success leaves clues. Our clinic has grown over the years to better serve our patients, the majority of which come to us from referrals. From Facebook likes, to reviewson Yelp, Open Care and Google +, we average 4.9/5 star rating. Most recently, Dr. Scott Levine was awarded International Chiropractor of the Year for 2013-14, and Vita was awarded the Patients Choice Award 2014 for the Toronto area. We look forward to ongoing success as we continue to fulfill our mission.
