I'm a chiropractor, kinesiologist, acupuncturist and certified fitness consultant who has been practicing for more than 15 years. I'm also the doctor behind Dr. D's home healthcare products.

After establishing PROMEDX Therapeutics Inc. (a multi-disciplinary chiropractic and pain treatment centre), I saw that a lot of my patients were dealing with chronic pain from conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. I took a keen interest in finding ways to help his patients supplement treatments at home.

Thai Massage Practitioner & Yoga Instructor currently employed at Durham Manor in Pickering with a Yoga Instructor, Thai Massage and Reiki Level 1 Certificates. Yoga has been an amazing tool of transformation in my life. It has opened up to me a wonderful world of postures, meditation & breathing techniques. It has taught me to be kinder to myself and others and it has also raised my awareness of aspects of myself beyond the physical. It has taught me to be more mindful and yoga constantly reminds me to live in the present moment. My goal is to keep on learning & to share the knowledge and expertise I have acquired with my clients.
