Dr. Lisa Ghent, ND
Doctor, wife, mother

 

Naturopathic medicine is really close to my heart. It was my own ND over a decade ago that discovered why my husband and I were struggling to get and stay pregnant. Because of her I now have three beautiful daughters. It was this experience that also led me to become a naturopath. I already had a background in medicine, but I was so drawn to the idea of really listening to people’s stories and treating them holistically. I am truly grateful to do what I do. There is no doubt that my calling is to care for others and help guide them towards health. 

 

My credentials: I have a Bachelor of Science with honours from Athabasca University, and graduated as a naturopathic doctor from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine where I was awarded the prestigious Clinical Excellence Award. I am a member in good standing of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND), the British Columbia Naturopathic Association (BCNA), the Pediatric Association of Naturopathic Physicians (pedANP), and am licensed by the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia (CNPBC). I am board certified in Acupuncture and IV Therapy. I have completed additional naturopathic courses in pre- and post-natal care, pediatrics, obstetrics, hormone replacement therapy, and chelation therapies. I also have prescription authority here in BC.

Naturopathic medicine is really close to my heart. It was over a decade ago that a naturopath discovered why my husband and I were struggling to get and stay pregnant, and gave us hope in the midst of loss. Now we have three beautiful daughters. It was this experience that led me to become a naturopath. I already had a background in medicine, but I really resonated with the idea of listening to people’s stories and treating them holistically, always from a place of compassion. I am truly grateful to do what I do. There is no doubt that my calling is to care for others and help guide them towards health by meeting them where they are, and providing a path that is practical, sustainable and effective.

Touch is the first sense to develop, and arguably the last sense we lose. It allows us to feel connection to the world around us. I have always been fascinated by the complexity of the human body and drawn to massage therapy as a way to restore ease and balance in the body. Being a massage therapist is truly my calling. During my studies I participated in the BC Women’s Hospital student outreach providing massage therapy to women admitted with high risk pregnancies, and at the student clinic I provided treatments for women with low risk pregnancies. These experiences sparked a passion for supporting women during their childbearing years. Now, raising two children of my own, I feel a deeper understanding and appreciation for the extraordinary changes that occur in the body during pregnancy and beyond.

 

My treatments are for everyBODY; I treat all genders in all stages of life with a focus on pre/post natal and infant massage. I use a combination of swedish massage with trigger point release, craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, joint mobilizations and muscle energy release in a treatment style I describe as deep flow massage. I take a holistic approach , looking at the body as a whole when determining how best to provide support in reaching optimal health.

 

My credentials: I graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2008, and am a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of BC (CMTBC) and the Registered Massage Therapists Association of BC (RMTBC). I have completed further training with the Upledger Institue in CranioSacral Therapy, SomatoEmotional Release, and CranioSacral Therapy for Pediatrics. I am also a certified Infant Massage Instructor.

Casey Bjorgum, Certified Pedorthist

 

From a young age, I have always been a sports enthusiast. As a spectator and participant, I immersed myself in anything and everything.  As I entered University, I knew that human biomechanics and sports injuries were of specific interest to me. My family has been in the knee bracing industry since 1980, which undoubtedly helped direct me to both pedorthics and knee bracing. I have experience in and enjoy assessing individuals of all ages and activity levels, especially athletes ranging from professional to weekend warriors.  Over the years I have assessed members of the Vancouver Canucks, Vancouver Giants, BC Lions, and Vancouver Whitecaps.  Regardless of one's activity level, I truly believe an integrated approach is key in addressing soft tissue injuries. I now work with West Coast Pedorthics and we are thrilled to have a new Ladner location.

Marcia Reoch, RMT

When I was younger, I suffered from a chronic shoulder problem after intense sport training. My rehab involved a wonderful manual therapist who helped me through my pain, and inspired me to do the same for others. I use manual therapy, patient education, and strengthening with patients. I have a passion for working with women during and post-pregnancy, a passion that was enhanced by having had two children of my own. I also have strong knowledge working on a wide variety of pathologies and postural imbalances. I believe that postural alignment and muscle balance are important in recovery.  My husband and I started a massage therapy practice in South Delta, which you can read more about at http://wellandable.ca/. 

In my free time, I enjoy being active and hanging out with my family. I love swimming, nature, and most outdoor activities. I also enjoy DIY projects around the house and being creative in many different ways, such as sewing, poems, and art projects with my kids.

I graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2007.am a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of BC (CMTBC) and the Registered Massage Therapists Association of BC (RMTBC).

Michael Reoch, RMT

 

Since I can remember, I have had a passion for helping people. That passion, mixed with my drive to learn how the body works led me to become an RMT.  I’ve spent hundreds of hours in post-graduate education on the science of pain. I use this extra knowledge to uniquely assess patients and help them figure out what is causing their pain. I often see people with conditions which are complex and daunting but find that Massage Therapy combined with movement or exercises will almost always help. 

Like most RMTs, I have training in many techniques and multiple methods of treatment. I will work with you to find the one that best suits your body weather with gentle, steady or firm pressures.

I have always thought it important to give back to the community by volunteering and joined the volunteer board of the RMTBC for six years helping to advance the massage therapy profession through science-based education. I am a past board member and Chair of the Communications Committee for the Registered Massage Therapy Association of British Columbia. Through the RMTBC, I helped to create an advanced practice group for pain management to help RMTs pursue advanced education in pain sciences called APGPain. He has helped develop Pain education programs for RMTs in BC through the RMTBC and PainBC. Presently, I volunteer in Ladner with the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue and the Delta Police Department.

Noelle Trotter, Certified Pedorthist

 

My love and interest in assessing movement began with a love for ballet. I danced throughout my childhood, including a couple of years at the National Ballet School in Toronto, Ontario. I knew when it was time for university that I still wanted to have dance in my life, so I went to the University of Waterloo and studied Applied Health Sciences. It was my older sister, a chiropractor, that introduced me to the field of pedorthics. After working for companies such as Paris Orthotics and Ossur for several years, I opened my own practice and now work in 4 locations. I enjoy assessing all individuals from avid runners, young athletes, dancers and everyone in between.

Andréa Sandoval, Certified Bowen Therapist

 

I started studying Bowen therapy because it impacted me greatly as a patient. I was drawn to the technique because of its simplicity and power. It has become my calling; I feel so blessed everyday that I am able to share my skills with the world. I help patients become pain-free, improve their movement and most importantly, their quality of life. I am here to support and care for patients both physically and emotionally.  

In my spare time I love to create music and sing. I also make crystal jewelry including mala bead bracelets; you may have even seen me at local craft fairs! I loves to travel, do yoga, dance, and spend time in nature.

I have a special interest in assisting those with more complex cases such as post-concussion syndrome, fibromyalgia and auto-immune diseases. I especially enjoy working with young children and the youth who struggle with stress, allowing for recovery in the most gentle and holistic way possible.

 

I studied with and gained full certification through the Bowen Therapy Academy of Australia in 2007. I have furthered my studies in Specialized Bowen Procedures, Mother Baby Bowen, and Mind Body Bowen. I have previously worked in Vancouver’s first Bowen Therapy clinic, while at the same time having the privilege of working alongside my instructor and running the Bowen Canada Registry.
