Our treatment is a marriage of the best research and clinical expertise, and the clients’ perspectives and wishes.

Hi I am Rebecca I have been a Registered Massage Therapist for over 13 Years and love it. I specializes in contemporary Acupuncture where I focuses mostly on pain and stress. I graduated from D’Arcy Lane Institute of Massage therapy in June 2007 and was registered directly after.

I completed the course at McMaster University for Contemporary Acupuncture in December 2010, working with many great health practitioners who have worked with a variety of different athletes and pain conditions which is the main focus of the type of acupuncture I uses to decrease pain and maintain or regain muscle and nerve function to the body. This type of acupuncture works well in conjunction with massage therapy and myofascial release (which she is also trained in) to help stretch the tissues and bring circulation back into the area to help flush out the toxins that may have been released in the tissue that were trapped from injury. Another reason for acupuncture is to bring blood flow to an area for healing and to help break down and tension or scar tissue that may be caused by various reasons.

In January 2015 I took the Contemporary Cupping Therapy Course in Vancouver BC. I can do full body cupping for several different purposes. My Passion in my career has been fertility, prenatal and postnatal treatments. I have taken courses for foam rolling to help with home care, infant massage therapy instruction as well as post natal massage at the Perinatal Massage Therapy Educational Insitution where I learned alot about how to work with the pelvic floor and diastasis recti, without actually having to touch the pelvic floor. I am a mom of 2 toddlers and I have used everything I have learned on myself as well as doing personal training and Pfliates to know where to refer out when necessary but to also keep myself in the best shape and practice what I preach.

Completed assessment courses allow me to use these skills to find the source of the pain, whether it be from where the pain occurs or further from the source. November 2017 I completed the ultrasound course which helps when clients come in with more acute pain or are sore from the deep treatment or even a stubborn trigger point that needs to be softened.

I have worked in physiotherapy clinics, a naturopathic clinic, a hospital and with a chiropractor, I am aware of how all other health practitioners work together and refer to others when necessary. I am excited to be apart of The Womb Woodstock, and work in a community of like minded practitioners who will be able to support each other.

Prior to entering into the field of Osteopathy, Katie obtained her Honours Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from McMaster University. Upon graduating she spent a year organizing and overseeing exercise therapy programs for individuals with profound mental and physical disabilities. She then spent eight years working as a Certified Kinesiologist in a physiotherapy clinic, during which time she returned to McMaster University and completed her Honours Bachelor of the Arts in the discipline of Philosophy.

Seeking more autonomy in her patient care, and an approach more focused on the cause of dysfunction rather than the symptomology lead Katie to encounter Osteopathy at which point she enrolled at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy to complete her Osteopathic training. Her love and passion for the discipline keep her constantly learning and have lead her back to the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy as a member of the faculty in order to help educate future osteopathic manual practitioners.

Katie treats with a strong focus and understanding of the structure-function relationship in the human body and how this relationship adapts and changes throughout the various growth and developmental stages of life.

Dr. Michelle grew up on a grain farm near a small town in Saskatchewan. She attended the University of Saskatchewan in the College of Kinesiology and although she initially was planning to be an elementary school teacher, she decided to pursue chiropractic which allowed her to combine all of her passions: health, education, and children. She moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to attend Northwestern Health Sciences University where she got her Doctorate of Chiropractic - summa cum laude (with the highest distinction). Dr. Michelle is always striving to learn more and took extra classes, seminars, and courses to allow her to deliver high quality care to her patients. Her desire to serve mothers and children also led her to become certified as a childbirth educator, labour/postpartum doula, and breastfeeding counsellor. She uses gentle and specific chiropractic techniques to influence the nervous system and, in turn, allow the body to heal and regenerate. It is her passion to work with entire families, especially pregnant/postpartum women and their children. This is why she is certified in Webster Technique (for pregnant women) and a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). Dr. Michelle lives in Oxford County with her husband (who is also a chiropractor) and her young daughter. Outside of caring for others with chiropractic, Michelle enjoys being with family, trips to Saskatchewan, reading, playing card/board games, and all things active such as hiking and canoeing!

Dr. Michelle’s philosophy is that health and wellness goes beyond pain sensations. The body is complex and runs through signals sent through the nervous system. Nervous system interference can manifest itself as a variety of different health concerns. Specific chiropractic adjustments remove this interference so the brain and the body can communicate more effectively, allowing the body to heal and adapt. This is how we become able to experience true wellness.

Her goal is to allow patients to be heard, to educate on health, wellness, and the nervous system, and to use chiropractic care to help them reach their own health goals so they can live life well.

Dr. Michelle is also certified in the Webster’s technique which is a technique designed for pregnant women. It focuses on balancing the pelvis to create the most optimal environment for the baby and to keep mom comfortable. Through this technique and others that Dr. Michelle uses, women frequently report decreased lower back pain, sciatica, heartburn, round ligament pain, and pubic pain, as well as reduced labour/delivery times (YAY!).

Dr. Jasmin is a family chiropractor who is passionate about helping families feel and function at their best. Her mission is to help others understand the true meaning of health, and educate on the importance of brain-body communication. She understands that stress plays a pivotal role in how our bodies are able to function and thus, provides chiropractic care to allow her patients’ bodies to better adapt to life’s stressors.

In her practice, Dr. Jasmin takes a neurofunctional approach and prioritizes the health of the nervous system. She uses specific chiropractic adjusting techniques (Thompson, Webster, & Activator) to ensure her patients nervous systems are clear and functioning at their best. Jasmin has a special focus in women’s health and pediatrics. Supporting women through fertility, pregnancy, and postpartum is a role that she never takes for granted. She also helps support babies and toddlers through their developmental milestones, digestive, feeding and sleep challenges, and provides parents with the confidence to navigate these chapters with ease. In her spare time Dr. Jasmin enjoys going on hikes, spending time with family, and playing with her young daughter. She became a mom in the Fall of 2023 and has become even more passionate about sharing chiropractic care with other parents and babies.

Dr. Jasmin is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), and has certified in the Webster Technique, Thompson Adjusting technique, P.I.P.S (Pediatric Intraoral Palate Specific) technique, and has furthered her understanding of the needs of pediatric and prenatal populations through many continuing education courses.

I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing with an Honors Distinction from the University of Western Ontario in 2012. With a passion for perinatal health, I began my career as a nurse in the Obstetrical Care Unit at London Health Sciences Centre. In 2015, I had my first baby and we faced all kinds of breastfeeding challenges. With the support of an amazing village, including a couple of wonderfully skilled lactation consultants, we came to find out our son had a significant tongue tie. This inspired my own career shift into lactation consulting. In 2018, I became designated as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). With a special interest in tethered oral tissues (aka tongue & lip ties), I have been dedicated to supporting families along their infant feeding journeys since!

As a mom of 3, I understand how challenging navigating infant feeding can sometimes be. From planning prenatally, to the early newborn days, to introducing solids, and beyond, I am happy to help you and your baby meet your unique needs.

Amy is a new mama, registered yoga teacher, ayurveda wellness counsellor and self care enthusiast - passionate about whole-hearted living and sharing the gifts of yoga with others. While she has been practicing yoga for over 15 years, it was her own health crisis that led her to undergo her yoga teacher training in 2017 to understand and immerse herself more deeply into yoga as it was such a grounding tool that helped her feel more ease and support during that health crisis. She spent 3 months living at an ashram, practicing yoga daily, nourishing her mind, body & soul, learning how to be more present with the uncomfortable, and to hold space for herself as she peeled back the many layers of her own healing journey. Upon returning from her yoga training - she felt the pull to share the many gifts that yoga had blessed her with, and to make yoga accessible for those who may be going through their own challenges too.

In addition to her 200 hour Sivananda Hatha Yoga Certification, she has undergone a 100 hour Therapeutic Yoga Training, Yin Yoga, Chair Yoga, Trauma Informed Movement & both Pre & Post Natal Certifications. She has also been fascinated with Ayurveda (the sister science to yoga) and underwent training in Ayurvedic Cooking and is also an Ayurveda and Yoga Wellness Counsellor. She is also currently working towards her 300hour yoga certification with PranaShanti Yoga Centre in Ottawa. But her greatest blessing and teacher in yoga and life has been the birth of her son in 2022. Witnessing her body change and adapt through pregnancy to create a little human, give birth and heal post C-section, and also journey into motherhood - has been so awakening, empowering and humbling all wrapped into one. Amy was thankfully introduced to the WOMB early on in her pregnancy - and had such a wonderful experience partaking in prenatal yoga, pelvic floor physio, doula support, and postpartum services - that she is over the moon to be joining this amazing community that was such a sacred space for her own pregnancy & postpartum journey!

Amy’s classes will guide you to gently move, nourish and reconnect to your body, to build your toolkit to be able to support and experience regulating your own nervous system, to connect with your little one, and most importantly to give yourself grace and compassion both on and off the yoga mat!

I’m Lana and I am a birth doula, lactation educator, and mother to three beautiful children. Helping new moms has been my passion for over a decade. I believe that every woman or birthing person deserves to be fully supported while they are giving birth because giving birth is hard enough on its own! Childbirth is more than medical or physiological—it is a rite of passage for both mother and baby and it is my aim that this sacredness is protected in your unique birth experience.

When I was having my own babies, I took classes in the Bradley Method and HypnoBabies, and the study I did during those three pregnancies made me passionate about childbirth. Since then, I have earned certification as a labor doula through CAPPA, I’ve become a certificated Lactation Education Specialist with BreastfeedLA in Los Angeles, and I was also trained in traditional rebozo techniques with Gena Garcia-Kirby. Before becoming a doula, I was an experienced breastfeeding peer counselor, trained and accredited by La Leche League International since 2013. I am eager to help you initiate and sustain breastfeeding once your baby arrives.

As your doula, I know that I am one part of a supportive circle of care around you, present to care and sustain you as you do some of the most important work of your life.

Andy has lived in Norwich township for forty years. He is married for nearly 37 years, he and his wife have 3 children, and 4 grandchildren. He comes from a background of 30 years as a skilled tradesman.

He was introduced to osteopathy as a patient several years ago. Through many conversations with his practitioner, Andy began to be intrigued with how the human body works mechanically. He eventually decided to make a bold career change, and go back to school.

Andy is a graduate from the 4 year M.OMSc program at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy. He brings decades of life skills, compassion and integrity to osteopathy. He looks forward to serving the needs of his local community with enthusiasm and passion for many years to come.

He sees osteopathy as both curative and preventative. It is a purely natural and relaxing way to bring balance to the many tension lines throughout the body. The law of nature dictates that the body naturally moves toward health. As a practitioner, it is his job to find those asymmetries or roadblocks, and normalize those tissues, so the body can naturally move toward health. Through gentle manipulation, he can use the soft tissue to affect the hard tissue, and hard tissue to affect the viscera, while appealing to the nerves, arteries, veins and lymphatics to ensure proper fluid dynamics, leading to overall improved health.

Carolyne is our lead yoga teacher here at The WOMB. A muma of 3; 2 of which were home births. After her first birth, she made education in health and wellness alternatives a priority. When she had her second daughter in 2009, she became a certified yoga teacher and from there helped her parents open up Radiant Health Yoga Studio. She has been supporting people through breathing and movement ever since.

It wasn’t until she started teaching yoga that she realized her birth experience was few and far between- something that women hoped for but rarely experienced. It became more and more apparent that there was a HUGE lack of support, information and resources and no tangible place to send mums to when it came to pre/postnatal care, so she began a Prenatal Yoga Circle.

That was in 2013, that class became a place for mums-to-be to connect, move and share. It opened them up to their options, giving them insight on the hidden gems of practitioners that were available within the community.

Later that year she took a weekend course in Doula education and a year later completed her 100hr Prenatal Yoga Certification. It was there she met Dr. Sinead Dufour, who she admires and has continued to train with over the years.

In 2015 she received her Pelvic Floor Trainer Certification with Bellies Inc. She continues to train and educate herself in Pelvic Health, and other modalities such as Movement and Trauma, Mindful Strength, Shamanic Healing and Yoga and The Facial System.

Being apart of The WOMB is a dream come true for Carolyne. She is beyond excited to be working alongside Dr. Pam Thornton, a huge mentor and leader in pre and postnatal health.

> In the end, it’s not necessarily the type of birth you have that has a lasting impression… to know you had options and freedom of choice, that you were supported in your decisions and most importantly that you were heard and you were respected , that you were treated with care and compassion. This is of the utmost importance and lasts a lifetime. EVERY woman deserves this type of care.
