Our Team

Our team specializes in a vast array of women’s health concerns including fertility issues, pregnancy care, PMS, Thyroid Disorders, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Menopause, and Menstrual Irregularities. As infertility is associated with both men and women, treating men’s health concerns is similarly significant at our centre. Our unique integrated approach incorporates research-based treatment, combining them with traditional therapies. Our team of health professionals include naturopathic doctors, network care chiropractor, osteopathic manual practitioner, registered massage therapists, health coach, Bioptron Light therapist, and yoga instructors.

Our goal is to empower patients to become advocates of their own health. To foster our patients’ health and wellness, we offer ongoing educational seminars and workshops. As you become aware about our centre and decide to make a change, your journey has already begun. We welcome and encourage you to take this opportunity and start on this path!
