Dr. Kyla Miller

Chiropractor

Originally from BC, I attended University of Victoria for my undergraduate studies, and then continued on to Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2007, and was a member of the Sports Chiropractic Team.

I look forward to meeting you and your family, and working together along the path of health and wellness.

More about Dr. Miller

My favourite part of my job is that it feels like I treat friends all day long. I love to hear about your families, workout routines, new challenges you are facing at work, trips you are planning, and activities you are participating in. I enjoy treating patients of all ages, and hearing the giggles of children after getting adjusted, working with a pregnant mom and then meeting her new baby, and listening to the stories of my “snow birds” who have returned from a winter of golfing down South.

Knowing how important chiropractic care is to my health, I continue to be adjusted every week, so I can continue to play competitive water polo, keep up with my very active dog (Wattson, an Airedale), golf, learn how to play hockey, take time out to relax and enjoy my husband’s company, and function at my best.

When I’m not at the office or the pool, I volunteer with Rotary International, working directly with international youth exchange students, helping them learn our Canadian culture, and appreciate all that Canada has to offer. For those patients who speak French, I am also bilingual, and would really appreciate being able to practice my French, so please challenge me to do so!

Dr. Linda Li

Dr. Linda Li

Chiropractor

I was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Canada most of my life. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Alberta and continued my studies at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto where I graduated with a Doctorate degree in Chiropractic. In addition, I am certified in Clinical Acupuncture, Thompson Technique and Graston Techinque®.

More about Dr. Li

Growing up in a Chinese family, I have always been exposed to alternative therapy and have noticed that the body responds very well with fewer side effects. I was first introduced to chiropractic when my mom was suffering from severe back pain. Not only did chiropractic treatment helped relieve her complaint, her chronic headaches were also resolved. She no longer carries pain medication in her purse, which she had been doing for years.

During my internship, I volunteered for the CMCC Chiropractic Outreach Abroad to the Dominican Republic to provide chiropractic care to the less privileged. This experience has influenced my perception on how effective and beneficial manual therapy can be in treating a variety of different conditions.

Outside of professional practice, I enjoy baking, playing ball hockey, badminton, and swimming. Chiropractic care has been a very important part of my health in maintaining an active lifestyle. I look forward to working with you and your family to achieve optimal function and health.

Dr. Valerie Forrester

Dr. Valerie Forrester

Chiropractor

I have had the pleasure of being a Chiropractor in Calgary since 2001, with a focus on whole family wellness. I graduated from Northwestern Health Science University in 2001 with a Doctorate of Chiropractic and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Anatomy. At which time I had the opportunity to treat the Minnesota Vikings Football team as part of my internships.

More about Dr. Forrester

​I love chiropractic and being able to treat a wide variety of ages, including pregnancy, and pediatrics. The love of kids led me to complete a 200-hour certification from the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association). This additional training with the world leaders in pediatrics and pregnancy adjusting has given me advanced knowledge to help the entire family from birth onward to our later years in life. I am certified in the Webster Technique.

I have learned a variety of techniques over my years in practice and strive to find the right one that works for each individual body, preference and condition. When I am not seeing patients I love to cook and do a wide variety of work out classes, from Barre, weight training, spin, and yoga. In the summer I love wake surfing with my kids and husband. I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your health goals.

Baraa Elkadri

Baraa Elkadri

Osteopath

My name is Baraa Elkadri, I can be called Barry. I am 27 years old, born and raised in London, Ontario, and have lived in Calgary, Alberta since 2008. I have a burning passion for sports and activities such as cycling, badminton, hiking, and especially ice hockey. My specialty is being a goaltender and I have played this role for almost 20 years and still going. I love cooking various amounts of “5-star” style dinner/meals and this is considered my therapeutic process (Trust me it’ll blow your socks off!). I am also a part-time barber and have been cutting hair for over 10 years with known detail and precision.

More about Barry

I have been physically active with hockey, cycling, and other pursuits throughout my life and I’ve learned so much about the body’s personal aches and pains through living life well! I had suffered back injuries from my prior career as a barber and playing hockey, leading to a minor back surgery a few years ago. My extensive physical rehabilitation of osteopathy, physiotherapy, and chiropractic began to teach me much about how the body heals itself. It took a long time for me to realize that if I had been more personally engaged in that healing process, rather than simply having practitioners do the work for me, my recovery would have been speedier. Most importantly, it taught me about how tissue responds to treatment, how pain is experienced and how injury relapses occur. This together with my education through obtaining my Diploma in Osteopathic Manual Practice (DOMP) from the National Academy of Osteopathy in Toronto, led me to my career as an Osteopath. Understanding the body is a two-way process that tends to improve over time. I am excited to get started in this new chapter, to get to meet you, and get you in good hands through the journey to your recovery!

Jenny Limoges

Jenny Limoges

Midwife

As a twelve-year old looking through healthcare magazines, I discovered my passion for helping women at various stages of their life. I even created a scrapbook page which included snip-its of nursing and obstetrics content. At the time, I did not know the name for the type of practitioner I wanted to become… a midwife! I completed my Bachelor of Science (Health Science, 2013) at Mount Royal University (MRU) and applied to medical schools. Shortly after completing my BSc, I discovered the midwifery model of maternity care and returned to MRU in 2017. In 2021, I graduated from MRU with my Bachelor of Midwifery and a Minor in Women & Gender Studies.

More about Jenny

The past few years of my life have been filled with loss and joy. The experiences remind me to remain present, and to live in the moment. As a parent myself, I know firsthand how sacred childbirth is, and how transformative pregnancy, labour, and parenthood are. I feel that empowering others and walking with pregnant people during the experience of pregnancy and childbirth is exactly what my twelve-year-old self had dreamed of. Now, as a result of learning about the physiology of how our human bodies build, birth, and feed our babies, I am convinced that pregnancy is an experience that renews trust in our bodies capabilities.

I feel honoured to be a midwife, because this role affords me the opportunity to live out my passion and to fulfill my purpose. My practice of midwifery integrates discussions about how our body’s physiology, our intuition, and evidence-based maternity care influences pregnancy, labour and birth. My hope is to encourage confidence in my clients (and partners), about the body’s ability to build, birth, and nurture a baby as they navigate pregnancy and childbirth. From a young age I have been involved in initiatives that support and encourage women and girls. It just so happens that now my career as a midwife is also my life’s calling. I am humbled by the clients and families I serve, and I appreciate being a part of these sacred and precious the moments.

Jodie Campbell

Jodie Campbell

Functional Medicine AFMC | Health Coach

I’m Jodie but you already figured that part out! I’m a Functional Medicine Health Coach, gut geek, mom, wife, and bookworm. I love raw chocolate, green smoothies (even in winter), Amazon Prime, and helping women love their guts. When I’m not supporting clients, you can find me playing in the Rocky Mountains with my husband, son, daughter, and our dog Nora!

More about Jodie

I started this whole, wild ride because I was just searching for ways to improve and protect my family’s health (something I’m sure everyone can relate to). Before I knew it I was elbow deep, sifting through media fear mongering, false advertising, fad diets, and a nauseating amount of just plain stupid advice.

What I needed more than anything was someone to shoot it to me straight, someone to actually help!

And so instead of looking for her, I become her.

I couldn’t have known then how much of a health nerd I would turn into, how amazing I would find the design of the human body for optimal health, or how obsessed I would become in helping others build lifestyles (and legacies) that make them truly happy and healthy.

So that’s me!

You can expect me to be consistent in sharing useful and simple information. You can count on my excitement and dedication in motivating you in exactly the ways you need. You can trust that I am results oriented, and strategic towards giving you a life of freedom (and fun!). When I’m not totally geeking out on gut health topics, you can find me camping in the Rocky Mountains with my husband of 21 years and our two fantastic kids.
