Health Matters is an independently owned, full service health store located in the west end of Edmonton. The store changed hands in 2006 and since then, Kim Umphrey and her staff strive to create a store that you would be proud to call your destination health store. With this mandate in mind, the store was expanded from 780 sq feet to 1500 sq feet in the summer of 2010 to create new space for a Wellness Clinic with three practitioner offices.
Our Practitioners are the best in their field and with this team on board; we are now able to address all your health issues and concerns. Combining their talents and knowledge makes us a clinic with results. A short list of our services include: Acupuncture, Therapeutic Massage, Reflexology, Homeopathy, Iridology, Foot Detox, Ear Candling, Nutrition Counseling and more.
Being Independently Owned and Operated means we are able to carry the products you want at reasonable prices. We have knowledgeable, educated staff that can answer your questions. This is an important part of why I (Kim) went into the health business. I really loved and appreciated the knowledgeable staff that answered and guided my health questions when I was raising my children and I wanted to make this available to you. This is one of the most important things I offer at my store. I feel my education, my staff’s education (including a Medical Clinical Herbalist) enables us to better answer your questions and be of greater service.
You may ask, what products do you carry? Well we have all the top quality nutrition brands as well as the best Practitioner product lines. Some of the Practitioner lines include Seroyal, Metagenics and BioMed.
We have a growing section of Gluten Free foods (including Udi’s breads and yummy baked goods), organic superfoods (like raw cacao, maca and E3Live), Vita-Mix blenders and more.
