DR. BRIAN ARTHUR, D.C., M.Sc.

I like people and I am passionate about patients’ orthopaedics, health and wellness. I aim to provide expert diagnoses and treatment programs to establish long lasting recoveries. By thoroughly explaining the nature of problems, advising on how to avoid future ones and 
prescribing exercise, I feel that I positively impact patients’ long-term health trajectories.  I am also enthusiastic about core flexibility.  I teach CoreFlex©, a 15-minute core flexibility and strengthening program.  Scientific evidence suggests that having core flexibility slows spinal degeneration and arthritis, which can begin as early as our mid-twenties.  I am dedicated to making a difference for my patients and helping to rejuvenate their spine and joints.

SARAH CHIARELLO, R.M.T.

Sarah is a graduate of the 3000 hour program at the Vancouver College of Massage Therapy who has always been interested in healing and has previously studied herbal medicine, nutrition and Ayurveda. Sarah combines therapeutic massage techniques and relaxation massage to create a massage therapy session which is both relaxing and effective. This helps patients recover from acute, chronic and postural issues while at the same time relaxing the body to reduce stress, which further aids the healing process. Sarah’s approach to massage therapy stems from an in depth understanding of the musculoskeletal system and a passion to educate the patient in the cultivation of their wellness. Her joyful attitude and inquisitive nature allow her to develop customized treatment plans based on individual needs so that the patient may achieve and maintain their health goals. She particularly enjoys treating postural imbalances, headaches/migraines, myofascial trigger points, chronic pain, acute injuries, neurological conditions, women’s health, and stress-related concerns. In addition, she provides home care exercises to enhance the effectiveness of the massage treatment results, and encourage the patient to take an active role in their wellness. In her spare time she enjoys the outdoors, yoga, and exploring her creative side through painting and drawing.

DINA ACKERMANN, Certified LED Light Therapist

My name is Dina Ackermann and I'm a Certified LED Light Therapist.  I'm also the mother of three active children. Sports were a big part of our lives. As my children grew older, the physical stress of training and competition became harder on their bodies. Arthritis, inflammation, and overall pain were some of the issues my family was challenged by.


After exhausting several different treatment options, I discovered LED Light 

Therapy. The relief and outcomes we experienced motivated me to dig deeper into the science behind the technique. I enrolled in the LED  Light Therapy education and training program at LED Quantum Light Academy. In the fall of 2019 I became a certified LED Light Therapist.


Led Light Therapy is a pain-free, non- invasive approach to improving your 

quality of life, bringing you more BALANCE.

 

I am very happy to be able to share this alternative therapy option with those who need it,

and look forward to assisting you on your journey to a happier, healthier you!

HYEOKCHEON KWON, R.M.T

 

Hyeokcheon ("HC") Kwon graduated from the Vancouver Career College massage therapy program in 2021.  His approach to massage therapy is holistic.  As such, he assess's a patient's symptoms as manifestations from activities of daily living, stress, diet and habits. With this holistic understanding, HC is able to make recommendations for changes that allow him to more effectively tackle your problem(s). 

 

HC also believes that therapeutic massage does not need to be painful. By gradually increasing the pressure while checking in with the patient, he can reach deep tissue without causing undue pain.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAGGIE HO, REGISTERED ACUPUNCTURIST

My name is Maggie and I am a Registered Acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners & Acupuncturists (CTCMA). I attained my Bachelor of Arts degree from UBC, majoring in psychology, and have previously worked with children with autism.

 

My family has always been immersed into Chinese medicine and acupuncture. A serious illness in my family led to my studies in this wonderful field. 

I believe the body is capable of making remarkable changes and I strive to work with my patients to improve physical and mental well-being. I have always believed acupuncture should be relaxing and enjoyable, with noticeable improvements within a few visits.

 

I have been trained in Sports Medicine Acupuncture and am also a Certified Balance Method practitioner, which highlights the use of distal techniques to help the body move. Some common ailments my acupuncture has been able to help with include stress and anxiety, headaches, digestive difficulties, seasonal allergies, gynaecological issues, and most commonly, body pain and discomfort.

My passion for women’s wellness encouraged me to complete additional fertility + pregnancy training. Having gone through IVF myself, I have immense appreciation for the excitement, and challenges, of this process. I especially enjoy treating women during pregnancy, and helping to prepare the body for a smooth delivery. 

I feel fortunate to have also had extensive training in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture with two renowned TCM doctors in this specialty. Facial acupuncture can provide youth-enhancing benefits and can lift and tone facial muscles, soften lines and wrinkles, and increase collagen.

When not treating patients or in clinic, I can usually be found around town with my husband, two sons, and my agility-loving terrier, Sam. I love a good laugh and taking weekend trips with my boys to uncover new adventures
