MEET THE TEAM
Katie White, RMT
I have experience treating a variety of clients from the injured athlete to the office worker, having worked many years in rehabilitation clinics. I tailor the treatment by assessing client symptoms, posture, and pain patterns. In addition to treating an injured area or area of pain, I look at the entire body as a whole and treat other areas that have been affected by compensating.
My treatment style consists mostly of deep tissue, active release techniques, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and cupping. I will sometimes integrate essential oils to assist in reducing client symptoms on a cellular level across many areas such as muscle pain/tension, headaches/migraines, respiratory conditions, digestive issues, anxiety, etc.
I use essential oils in my everyday life, educating myself on their healing properties, as well as extensively researching food and nutrition. I attend fitness classes on the regular and love yoga and pilates. I believe in being proactive versus reactive. Prevention is the key to a life of health, vitality, and longevity. Treat your body like a luxury car. Feed it with high-quality fuel (food) and get regular tune-ups (massage). :)
Chloë Tudor, RMT
I was born and raised in the beautiful coastal town of Lockeport, Nova Scotia where a sense of community is very strong.
I have a thorough understanding of how the body works and an ability to problem solve through injury review and pain pattern analysis. Listening and empathizing with my clients allow me to identify the best treatment type and provide excellent results. My Kinesiology degree, from U of T, adds another layer of technique to the massage therapy. I have also taken courses to further specialize in deep tissue therapeutic massage, such as fascial therapy and scar tissue release.
Having worked in physiotherapy, pain, and rehabilitation clinics, I know the different pain relief solutions. I offer targeted treatments to achieve fast and effective results, while providing suggestions to maintain long-lasting results.
Dr. Carmel Bachar, Chiropractor
I graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College earning my Doctor of Chiropractic degree, after obtaining an Honours specialization degree in Kinesiology, with a minor in Health Sciences from the University of Western Ontario. I then obtained a subsequent certification in Functional Integrative Acupuncture from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College.
I have always been involved in health and athletics at the recreational, performance and rehabilitation levels. Over the years, my experience in training and treating a wide variety of conditions helped establish a strong passion for healthy movement. With a background in swimming and gymnastics, I strongly believe in the benefits of movement, strength and flexibility for living a healthy lifestyle.
To facilitate each patients’ return to optimal function as quickly and effectively as possible, I apply an evidence-informed and patient-centred approach. This may include chiropractic adjustments, prehab (injury prevention) and rehabilitation exercises, soft tissue therapy, education, functional retraining and more. My goal is to help others live active and balanced lifestyles.
Robert Glean, RMT, CFSS
I'm a Registered Massage Therapist, Fascial Stretch Therapist, and Movement Educator that is not like any other manual therapist. I promote tissue health with proper assessment positioning and movement. Essentially the body needs to learn how to function through arranged movement patterns and people are quickly forgetting what it means to move without pain or to have range of motion without muscle tension. I use my knowledge of combining fascial stretch therapy (FST), neurological tests, muscle tests, vision training, functional movement, and manual therapy to unlock the very threat and pain responses that prevent people from moving better, feeling better, and thinking clearly with more energy. My experience with integrating this approach of therapies has widely ranged from young children, athletes (in sports such as soccer, basketball, tennis, crossfit, baseball), a variety of neurological challenges within people with CP, MS, Parkinson's, Concussions, Spinal Cord Injuries, Stroke, Dystonia, Clippers, etc.), to basically anyone that wants to feel like themselves again so that they can add play to their lives and family.
Kaitlin Turner, PT
I have been practicing as a Physiotherapist for over 6 years, and in that time my problem solving, manual therapy, and exercise prescription skills continued to advance; however, one thing has remained the same— my patient-centred approach. I truly aim to find the root cause, or usually causes, of your problem and work with you to come up with an individualized treatment plan. My goal will always be the same as yours; to make you feel and move better.
To provide an exceptional standard to care to my patients I have invested a lot of time taking continuing education courses as well as pursuing other degrees. I am also a teaching assistant in for an anatomy course for physical therapy students and undergraduate course exploring Anatomy in Application: Exercise in Biomechanics. These experiences allow me to share my knowledge, lecture, and continually review anatomy, exercise, and biomechanics.
Currently, I am pursuing a PhD to explore a question I created based on my clinical experience and basic human anatomy. I decided to pursue a PhD because I love a challenge, want to answer some of my clinical questions, and want to impact people on a larger scale. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends, family and my dog Tuna, reading, travelling, live music.
Lisa Chau, PT, R.Ac
Hello, I'm Lisa, a Registered Acupuncturist, Physiotherapist, and Yoga Teacher who believes that inner discovery can reveal the path toward wellness. I have a special interest in assisting people to navigate periods of transition in their lives and helping them to align with the most vibrant and well expression of themselves.

Mackenzie Brydon, RMT
My approach to Massage Therapy blends relaxation techniques with the therapeutic effects of a deep tissue treatment. I am dedicated to my client's well-being and recommend treatment plans to fit each individual's specific needs. I have a strong interest in myofascial release and specialized treatments including perinatal massage, TMJ dysfunction, sinusitis/sinus congestion, tension headaches, chronic pain, and many others.
Angela Grivich, RMT
I excel in therapeutic massage and have acquired extra training in Myofascial Release, Postural Correction, Deep Tissue Massage, Cupping Therapy, Therapeutic Kinesiology Taping, and Therapeutic Ultrasound. I am dedicated to providing excellent customer service and client care. I take pride in my ability to develop a strong and professional rapport with all of my clients. Moreover, my thorough understanding of human anatomy coupled with my technical skills and training, enable me to identify the specific needs of my clients in order to provide a relaxing and therapeutic treatment. In my practice, I integrate Swedish Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Joint Mobilization, Myofascial Release, Cupping Therapy, and Kinesiology Taping to treat a variety of conditions. I also have extensive clinical experience working with acute and chronic pain, repetitive stress/strain injuries, postural dysfunctions, and general aches and pains.

Meagan Brown, AT, RMT
I have been working in a multidisciplinary setting for the last 5 years in Toronto and hope to continue building my presence in this beautiful city. My clinical practice focuses on combining both passive rehabilitation and facilitating dynamic exercises to influence and promote a client's active lifestyle. I strongly believe in soft tissue techniques and tissue manipulation with an emphasis on my clients' use of specific exercise and activity to help maintain the positive changes we have created during our sessions.
In addition to my clinical practice, I work with Canadian Alpine Skier, Ali Nullmeyer as her personal Athletic Therapist. I have travelled and worked with Ali extensively across North America and Europe to successfully assist in her return from serious injury and compete on the Alpine World Cup circuit once again. My in-field experience and specific sport injury rehabilitation has given me the unique foundation to return individuals to their sport or every-day activities in a stronger, healthier state, as effectively and safely as possible. I love to work with individuals from the beginning to the end of injury as well to help maintain the human body and help prevent issues in the future!
