On behalf of Tamara Bond-Vlad and the Life Therapies family, thank you for nominating our clinic and team members in the 2019 Faces of Ottawa Award. While we did not take home the ‘hardware’ in the Favourite Natural Wellness Company or in the Favourite Physiotherapist categories, we truly believe that all the nominees across every category are winners.

The Faces Awards remind us that the National Capital Region is home to many talented individuals, businesses and organizations. Without them, our communities would not flourish.

So please join us in congratulating all the nominees and the winners. You make us proud to call Ottawa, home!
