Elizabeth Williams RMT CST

Elizabeth has been serving the Bow Valley for over 12 years, helping people overcome injury and pain, and helping them to manage chronic conditions.

Elizabeth believes that by design our bodies are self healing; sometimes it  needs a helping hand, or two, to return to optimal health. 

In addition to massage therapy for acupuncture soft tissue injury treatments and post surgical rehab work, she is a certified CranioSacaral Therapist. Her clients have ranged from new borns in hospital to elite athletes and everyone in between.

She is trained in sport massage, pre and post natal work, myofascial release techniques, trigger point and deep tissue, PNF, and lymphatic drainage. She is passionate about helping people and continues to pursue advanced education to better serve her clients. 

Dominic Vallee TCMD

It is with the utmost respect for the human body, mind and spirit that I approach my patients. I believe that pain is the result of an imbalance of the whole body and treatments will be geared toward removing that pain and finding homeostasis, harmonizing yin and yang.

I treat pain and injury-related disorders, including: arthritis, neck and back pain, MVA complications, and sports injuries.

I have a special interest in treating children and severe dermatology issues. I have also had success treating emotional disorders such as anger, resentment, and depression.

Dr. Melanie Leclerc, DC

Dr. Melanie has been serving the Bow Valley at Cafe of Life Chiropractic for more than a decade. She believes that dysfunction or negative symptoms in the body is its way of asking you help it heal - a call to action to achieve wholeness, and therefore wellness.

The state of the nervous system literally controls our connection between the mental, physical and spiritual levels. When the nervous system works optimally and the spine is aligned, we experience true health on all levels.

Helping you to reach your maximum potential for balanced health is Dr. Melanie's passion!

Kathy Bugo (RN, Bowen Therapist)

Bowen is a gentle, hands-on therapy that works with the body's fascia to reduce or relieve pain.

As a practising RN for the last 30 years and being a community case manager for the last 17 years, I have noticed that there are those in the community who sometimes require more attention than the public system can provide. My wish is to support those in the community with their health issues before they become a crisis
and to do this I offer the following services:

Assessment of your health needs in context of your individual life situation with the promotion and adaptation of healthy life choices.

Education about disease prevention through promoting adaptation of healthy life choices.

Provide anxiety reduction, energy management, systems balancing, and sleep enhancement using Bowen Therapy.
