Boehm's Physiotherapy will set you on the right path to a healthy recovery. 



In their latest fitness and exercise physiotherapy article, they discuss the benefits of stretching and flexibility.


The Benefits Of Stretching




Through the course of our daily routines, there are groups of muscles that do not travel through daily stretching. Overusing these same muscles can lead to decreased flexibility. and tightness. Unless you do some sort of maintenance to lengthen these structures, tightness and potentially pain can develop. Stretching is a way to rebalance the length of muscles that surround a joint while also relieving joint pressure. This allows easier movement and can be done in a quick 2 - 3 minutes.


At Boehm's Physiotherapy, they can give you the right stretches to balance out areas in your body that may be developing tightness. If these stretches are done correctly, it will help to ensure injury prevention or enhanced performance, as movement will be easier for you. The goal with physiotherapy is to reduce the pain and inflammation of the injury. Physiotherapy will also increase flexibility around the injury so that the area of tightness moves easier. This will help to ensure future injury prevention.




At Boehm's Physiotherapy, they pride ourselves on serving each patient with dignity, respect and compassion. Looking for a physiotherapist in Saskatoon, Warman, Martensville and area?

The First Time Home Buyer Incentive

She strives to find them the perfect new place to live while negotiating the best terms and price possible.

By now you have likely heard about the buzz regarding The First Time Home Buyer Incentive (FTHBI), which will come into effect on September 2nd, for homes that close no earlier than November 1st. The Government of Canada is offering interest-free loans in the form of a shared equity mortgage to help home buyers obtain a smaller mortgage and keep their monthly payments lower. The program will offer 5% for a first-time buyer's purchase of a resale home and 5% of 10% for a first-time buyer's purchase of a newly constructed home. 



The incentive can be repaid at any time without penalty, but it must be repaid after 25 years or if the property is sold, whichever comes first. Repayment is based on the property's fair market value. When the loan is repaid, the government will also get a share of any gains from appreciation of the property. Vice versa, if the property value goes down, the government will shoulder some of the loss. 

In order to participate in the FTHBI, buyers must meet two main requirements: 


# 1 - Be a first-time home buyer
# 2 - Have an annual income of less than $120,000


Buyers will still need to save their down payment of at least 5 percent and the maximum home price is limited to 4 times the buyers qualifying income. Let's look at an example:

Anita wants to buy a new home for $400,000:

Under the First-Time Home Buyer Incentive, Anita can apply to receive the $40,000 in a shared equity mortgage (10% of the cost of a new home) through the program. This is on top of the minimum required down payment of $20,000 (5% of the purchase price) from her savings. This lowers the amount she needs to borrow, and reduces her monthly expenses. As a result, Anita's mortgage is $228 less a month or $2,736 a year. 

Years later, Anita has sold her first hoe for $420,000. At this time, she would have to repay the original incentive she received as a percentage of her home's current value. This would result in Anita repaying 10%, or $42,000 at the time of selling her house. -- www.placetocallhome.ca/fthbi

The program will certainly help some first-time home buyers. But it's important to remember although this is an interest-free loan, it is still a loan that will need to be paid back.

J & S Picture Frame Warehouse Share 6 Reasons Why You Should Consider Framing

The J & S Picture Frame Warehouse team believe that your pictures deserve the best! Locally owned and operated, they constantly strive to bring their customers the best materials, advice and workmanship for all of your framing needs.They simply offer the best selection of materials to preserve your treasures, keepsakes and works of art in Saskatoon.  J & S Picture Frame Warehouse are your Trusted Saskatoon Picture Framers. Read their 6 top tips about custom picture framing in their latest tip!


6 Reasons Why You Should Consider Custom Framing


# 1 - Aesthetic Component:

The aesthetic component of a custom frame can enhance your artwork, photo or keepsake -- giving your piece that special finished look.  As well as adding some PIZZAZZ to your home décor and showing your own taste and style. J & S Picture Frame Warehouse is a qualified picture framing designer and they will help you with your choices. 



"We chose warm mats and a golf frame and fillet for this Venice painting. It really suited it."






# 2 - Preservation:

The practical or preservation part of custom framing helps to ensure the piece is protected from fading and the breaking down of the art to become damaged.  Preservation of custom framing helps to prevent the damage among art before it's too late. When your art has been damaged, it is almost impossible to restore it without the help of a professional restoration expert. For any piece that is valuable, collectable, or just has great sentimental value to you -- it's important to use the right materials to preserve it in order for proper protection.


# 3 - Custom Framing:

Custom framing can be applied to almost anything. From one painting to a photo, to needlework, or any 3-dimensional keepsakes. Don't be put off by the term Custom Framing.

People often associate it with expensive, which isn't always the case. At J & S, they use options to prevent expensive pricing for their customers. They can use a stock frame and then customize the matting and glazing to protect your artwork, or they can use a moulding that is not so costly. Show the framing experts and they will do their best to work within your budget.



"This picture was to be placed in a man cave. We matched a rusty looking frame up with the rust on the traction. The results were outstanding." 




# 4 - Customizing Mirrors:

Framed mirrors can add so much to your living space.

Mirrors can make your room look larger and lighter with the right placement. A framed mirror will also add character and style to your space. 


# 5 - Old Photo Restoration:

Old family photographs, old wedding photographs, and birth certificates can be restored to look like new.

At J & S, they do this by scanning the damaged piece and using the computer to restore it to its original state. The piece is then printed on acid-free paper, using UV inks so they will last for generations to come. The file can be kept by you to share it with the rest of your family. You can now frame that piece of family history and enjoy it every day. It is protected, no matter the age. It's fun for younger generations to learn about their family history and to be proud of their heritage.





# 6 - Beware of DIY Framing:

Beware of DIY Framing. It may be fun to do your own framing by using old frames and frames from the big box stores. You can actually ruin an art piece or collector piece because of the quality of the materials used.


"If something is worth framing, it's worth framing well."


Quality is paramount at J & S - all work is completed with superb craftsmanship, expert advice and friendly service. Nationally acclaimed local artists trust J & S with their original artworks...why trust your memories to anyone else?

As always, you can find out more about the knowledgeable team at  J & S Picture Frame Warehouse your TRUSTED SASKATOON FRAMING EXPERTS by checking out their listing on Trusted Saskatoon or visiting them in store!
