One-on-One Physical Activity Counseling

Kinesiologists (CSEP-CEP) with the Acadia Centre of Lifestyle Studies provide patients and community members the opportunity to work one-on-one in a clinical setting to navigate ways to live a healthy-active lifestyle. Work with a Kinesiologist to build an appropriate exercise routine to meet your goals and lifestyle.

Patients are referred to the Kinesiologist by their respective Practitioners at the Berwick Family Practice, Harvest Tides or the Wolfville Professional Centre. Alternatively, community members can complete a Self-Referral Form and a Kinesiologist will arrange an in-take appointment at the Wolfville Professional Centre.
