Through the highest integrity, standards, values, and ethical discipline, we strive to become the preferred wellness clinic for both patients and practitioners alike.
We strive to give each and every patient the experience that the entire clinic team truly cares and works towards finding customized solutions. The terms “health” and “wellness” are defined based on the individual patient’s own needs, definitions, expectations, values and beliefs.
The clinic expression is based partly on the Scandinavian culture which calls for timeless modern designs and solutions uniquely merged with old traditions of togetherness, inclusivity and homey comfort – all in support of an atmosphere of thriving beyond surviving.

Dr. Kenneth Stelsoe
Dr. Kenneth is a “new generation” style Doctor of Chiropractic using a wide range of evidence-informed therapies to the benefit of his chiropractic patients. Dr. Kenneth believes the key to optimal patient care and injury recovery is through thorough diagnosis and a comprehensive treatment plan. Not only are his treatment plans based on research and clinical experiences, but more importantly, they are based on patient preferences and individual goals.
Depending on the individual patient’s needs, Dr. Kenneth may recommend additional therapies in the form of naturopathy, massage therapy, nutritional counselling, or mental/emotional counselling. All these therapies we offer in-house. However, if a patient would benefit from therapies we do not have, we gladly refer patients to external specialists in the local community.
Apart from his primary focus to his patients, Dr. Kenneth is the clinic owner with all the administrative and management tasks that come with that. Dr. Kenneth is a member of the faculty of Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College where he teaches assessment and treatment techniques for chiropractic students.

It has often been said that loss is about symptoms, or stages. Janet’s belief is that each can experience many losses in their life and the skills that one builds assists the person when the next grief attack or period of loss occurs. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss in one’s life. Mourning the loss of a job, of an interpersonal relationship, or even an ability can be, and is, devastating. Bereavement is a word used to describe a devastating loss, a type of grief, when a loved one dies.

Job loss has increased in recent months and it is so important to have a supportive environment in which to identify feelings, emotions, grow and ride the waves of grief. Janet’s stance with each individual, for all of these life losses, is to be caring and compassionate, while uncovering strengths, building self capacities and walking alongside an individual while validating the past and engaging in previously unimaginable hopeful ways while they remember and honour their loss.
