Medical clinic pays it forward

Valentus Medical Technologies sets up program to help needy get medical care

A recently implemented pay-it-forward program opens modern pain relief and brain balancing programs up to those who would find the cost prohibitive.

“We’re helping people in a place where a husband might be at home who’s been out of work for three years because of depression. They can’t afford it. And they’re the ones that need it,” said Stephen Davis of Valentus Medical Technologies in Oak Bay.

“We decided that we need to focus on building the clinic to help people who can’t help themselves.”

Valentus’ pain relief program uses digital infrared imaging technology, deep tissue laser therapy and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy to find, treat and restore healthy cellular function.

“The body’s natural ability to heal itself quickly, that’s what we do. Everything we do is non-invasive,” Davis said.

The pay-it-forward program is funded through Valentus clients and benefactors.

“We take five per cent of what we do and put it in a fund in the form of credits,” Davis said.

Country Grocer helps out by placing flyers into grocery bags that explain the program to their customers and encouraging them to donate.

“We’re not a charity, so we’re not going to give any tax receipts. But sometimes we just need to do something good for the sake of doing something good – not because you’re going to get financial benefit from somewhere else,” Davis said.

There are 35 medical doctors on staff to give insight to things that have gone wrong in the body, he said. “Light works. It is a great healing tool.”
