Shafeen uses education, manual therapy, exercises, IMS and Acupuncture to achieve goal-oriented results.

Erin’s athletic background consists of many sports, with soccer being her main passion and the game she continues to play today.

She has the experience of being a former high level athlete, but can relate to those who need to shake off the rust after prolonged absence from consistent physical activity, as she’s done most recently after returning to soccer following a 2 year break. Whether your passion is to Netflix & Chill, or pursue your athletic potential, Erin is dedicated to helping you overcome the barriers that are limiting your ability to do what you love.

Heather Lawrence

Hello Everyone! I am Dr. Heather, your neighbourhood chiropractor. I have a passion for providing tailored, patient-centred care with a focus on proactive healthcare, injury recovery and, pre- and postnatal care.

My chiropractic approach revolves around an comprehensive understanding of the neuromusculoskeletal (nerve-muscle-bone) system and its interconnections with the body’s overall health. I utilize a combination of soft tissue therapy, active rehabilitation and adjustments/mobilizations to address my patients’ specific needs and conditions.

Back in the day I was a varsity volleyball player playing in the NCAAs at Augusta State University and OUAs at Guelph University. I still play but I split my time with other sports like pickleball, tennis and basketball. If I’m not playing sports I’m riding my bike, enjoying a cocktail on a patio or walking my dog.

Looking forward to meeting you and helping you feel your best.
