Getting on the Chiropractic Path

In her early 20s, Dr. Lisa visited a chiropractor for tingling and numbness. It was there she learned just what kind of effect stress was having on her body, including years of low energy, fevers, upset stomach and various pains. She discovered her health was in her control, and chiropractic could be a proactive part of that journey.

After Dr. Lisa completed a BSc(HK) from the University of Guelph, she attended Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. She is passionate about learning and constantly researches stress and its impact on the nervous system.

Dr. Lisa loves helping others in Waterloo and the surrounding area and has done so for over 20 years.


The Incredible Impact of Adjustments

We all carry the effects of stressors in our lives. From the day-to-day stress of being a mom and balancing the many responsibilities of work and home to the longtime pressure of caregiving parents who may be ill, traveling back to your childhood traumas you may still carry with you over time, it’s a heavy load to bear. These factors break down our wellness and eat away at our well-being.

Dr. Lisa helps patients feel comfortable in their bodies through adjustments and related modalities. Once you understand how to access that feeling, healing can begin, and patients can embrace health. And we bring more ease to that body; that body then heals, restores, grows and repairs itself far more effectively.

Providing Hope to Patients in Pain & Discomfort

Even those patients who are chronically stressed and unwell can benefit from consistent adjustments. If you’re ready to take the next step in your health journey, contact us today to book an appointment!
