Bryce Van Camp (MScPT, Level 3 Manual Therapy Upper & Lower Quadrant, Level 1 Functional Dry Needling)

Since then he has been working in private practice with experience in treating musculoskeletal injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents, sports, overuse conditions, and workplace accidents. He commonly works with patients suffering from neck and back pain, both acute and chronic.

          He creates a personalized approach to each patient injury using a mix of manual therapy (including joint mobilization and soft tissue massage), exercise (with an emphasis on strengthening or endurance), and adjunct therapies (including heat, TENS, and acupuncture). He has also taken courses in McKenzie A, Acupuncture Kineticore dry needling, Manual Therapy Level 1, Upper and Lower Quadrant Level 2, and Upper Quadrant Level 3.

          He is an avid soccer player and enjoys most competitive sports. In the summer he spends his time hiking in the mountains or biking around town.

Sara Wilson (MPT, Level 2 & Level 3 Manual Therapy Lower Quadrant, Level 1 Functional Dry Needling, K-taping Pro Certification)

​          Sara graduated with her Masters in Physical Therapy from the University of British Columbia in 2015. After graduating, she worked in the Vancouver public healthcare system, with experience treating patients recovering from various kinds of brain injuries. She spent the last two years on maternity leave and during this time completed several Doctorate level courses through A.T. Still University.

​          Sara enjoys getting to know her patients and working together to create a home exercise program to give them the power to control their body and movement. She uses manual therapy (including joint mobilization and soft tissue massage), exercise, taping techniques, and other therapies (including heat, ultrasound, TENS, myofascial cupping) to create a custom treatment program for each patient. In the coming years she plans to add to her treatment approach by taking higher level courses to learn new techniques.

​          In her free time, Sara enjoys going for a long run, playing soccer and team handball, and going for hikes and outdoor adventures with her family.

Cuihong Yao (R. Ac)

​         Cuihong graduated with distinction from the three-year acupuncture program and obtained her certificate in Traditional Chinese Herbology from Grant MacEwan University.

​         Cuihong's list of accomplishments include a Bachelor of Science in Medicine and a Master's degree in Cardiovascular Disease from Tianjin Medical University in China, where she worked as a physician of internal medicine at the TIanjin Medical University General Hospital for eight years, specializing in cardiology. In addition to her duties as a physician, Cuihong was responsible for the instruction and treatment of the undergraduate course in cardiology, while also being involved in scientific research. 

​          In 1994, Cuihong moved on as an ultrasonic specialist, introducing ultrasound products and instructing hundreds of doctors in their use and interpretation. 

​          Cuihong's rigorous training in both Western and Chinese medicine allows her to treat her patients from both Western and Chinese medical perspectives to achieve optimal benefits.

​          Cuihong's modalities include acupuncture (needle insertion), electro-acupuncture, acupressure, ear seeds, cupping, gua-sha, together with some herbal medicine treatments.​

Jamie Smith (RMT, CST-T, S.T.A.M.I.N.A, Reiki Master, Reflexologist, Detoxification)

​         Jamie graduated with the NHPC equivalent of 2200 hours, as she has 30 years of bodywork experience. Jamie has an extensive list of healing modalities in her tool box. Her top values include continuing education and researching new techniques. She tailors the massage for your body at the time of the session. Each session is different, as your body will be different from all others.

​         Reiki can be added to any session for added enhancement and healing, as it relaxes the mind and body, which is required for the body to fully heal.​

​         Jamie has trained in detoxification and cell regeneration (through the use of a cold laser with frequency cards and finishing with an ionic foot bath). The laser, combined with a massage, is very powerful, and resets the body and brain memory back to a healthy place.

​         Jamie offers hot stone massage as another way to relax the body, and has recently added myofascial cupping to her arsenal.
