Jaimy Chua

Registered Acupuncturist,
Manual Osteopath

I am a licensed Acupuncturist and Manual Osteopath.

I grew up in a home that believed in the power of Chinese Medicine, my earliest memories as a child was going to a Chinese herbal pharmacy and the doctor would look at my tongue and weigh raw herbs on his scale. He would then wrap it carefully in newspaper, so we can prepare it at home. The aroma of steeped medicinal tea was pretty common in our house.

When I was young, my grandmother and I were close. She taught me the importance of self-care through massage therapy, herbal medicine, chinese plasters/linaments for cuts/sprains, and even face reading. She always said that you can tell a lot about someone by examining their face. I didn’t know it at the time but face reading can be used as a powerful tool for diagnosing disease in the body also.

I use needles and my hands to unlock your body’s ability to heal itself. These help to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation + pain, and regulate your body’s immune response.

I also guide clients on what steps they need to take in order to allow for healing to happen. These steps may include lifestyle and dietary modifications or meditation to re-establish the mind-body connection.

I provide solutions to relieve discomfort, so that my clients are able to live a more fruitful life.

I help patients who are struggling to heal or function from:
• traumatic accidents
• injuries from living an active lifestyle
• repetitive stress (computer or physical work, prolonged standing/sitting)
• stress
• pregnancy
• hormonal imbalances (migraines, fertility, menopause)

I am a big believer that our bodies are resilient and I’ve devoted myself to helping people uncover their healing potential.

I use a gentle and holistic (whole body) approach to care.

I help my patients realize their power to pull themselves out of disease, so they can transform their lives. I am here to guide and empower them.

Julane Pratt

Registered Massage Therapist

Julane grew up as an athlete, and understood from a young age how all parts of the body must work cohesively to achieve pain-free body mechanics. Her athletic experience was mostly on-ice as a competitive figure skater. Since a knee injury forced her to retire, Julane now coaches skating and hockey fundamentals.

She has worked with Olympians, World Champions, and CFL Players, and is currently a preferred RMT for the Kitchener Rangers since last season. In addition to massage, she incorporates pilates into the Rangers’ dry land training to maximize their strength and for injury prevention.

Julane loves new challenges that take her out of her comfort zone. She competes in local triathlons, was a past contender for Miss Universe Canada, and participated in recruitment combines for Bobsleigh Canada.

Julane combines her expert knowledge in pilates and massage into her practice to achieve greater results for her clients. Her focus is in biomechanical re-education, injury prevention, and rehabilitation. She will help you move better, invigorate your body, improve your quality of life, and boost your training abilities as an athlete.
Julane’s athletic experience and pilates education can help you to elevate your performance, prevent injury, and help relieve pain so that you can continue to pursue the sport or activity you’re passionate about. She is eager to learn and is continually upgrading her skills; her most recent pursuit is to get her certification as a fascial stretch therapist.

Kelly Russell

Clinic Assistant | Client Care

Kelly is a mother of two and a Psychology graduate with a life-long attraction to the helping and healing professions. She was previously employed for twelve years in the field of Substance Abuse Treatment. After a lengthy sabbatical devoted to full time motherhood, Natural Medicine seemed to be a logical fit. Her interest in Natural Medicine informed much of her parenting: using gentle methods, how to handle illness, and feeding her family.

Outside the office, she loves cooking, gardening, camping, and art. She loves discovering the stories and histories of people from their art and how they cook.

Her interest in Natural Medicine began in 2002 when she had gallbladder issues. Seeking relief she began to research what dietary modifications could be made to relieve her symptoms. During her first pregnancy, wishing for a holistic birth, she began to work with a Doula who helped her realize ways to manage labor pain. She was very enlightened by this experience and shaped the type of mother she became.

We are a passionate team of practitioners working to improve people’s lives through their health. Are you interested in joining our team? Then we would love to hear from you! We have immediate openings for Registered Massage Therapists.
