Welcome to Active Wellness LLC, in downtown Corvallis, Oregon. Established in July 2019, Active Wellness is an independent private practice for occupational therapy. This clinic is dedicated to keeping you healthy and active.
The clinic is accessible from the free local bus transportation system. The main transit station located at on block away at 5th and Monroe. Bicycle parking is accessible in the front of the building. Walking to this clinic is possible. Car parking is available in designated downtown lots or on the streets of Corvallis (see the Contact Us webpage). Ease of transportation is only one factor for choosing a therapy clinic. Experience and expertise are other factors to consider. As a resident of Corvallis for over 25 years, I appreciate the quality of life in the Willamette Valley. Over the past 13 years, I have worked in Portland and SW Washington with many skilled and gifted providers. Now, after many years of clinical practice, I established this clinic to provide both ease of access and quality care closer to home.
Each post will have a tip or reminder for health and wellbeing. This initial post shares the essentials of hand care – hand hygiene. An alcohol-based hand sanitizer is effective for protection from germs. However, if hands are visibly soiled, then soap and water is the preferred method for hand hygiene. Remember to lather for at least 20 seconds before to rinsing (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2021). Take the time to minimize the spread of germs.
