Dr. Lisa Ghent, ND
Doctor, clinic leader

 

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, Intravenous and Chelation 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.

​I believe that in order to achieve optimal health you must treat the root cause of disease, and you have to treat the whole person. We are incredibly complex and unique beings that can't be reduced to a mere symptom to be solved by a pill. So much of our health depends on not only our physical body, but also our mental and emotional states. In creating a patient-centered approach to healthcare, naturopathic medicine helps to restore balance. I find myself continuously more curious and excited about the power of this profession, especially after being diagnosed with Celiac Disease at age 18. I am thrilled to be back in South Delta for my clinical practice. 

I treat all ages and genders, but do have special interests in a number of areas including autoimmune conditions, gastrointestinal disorders, sports medicine (you may know me as a dancer or teacher at Deas Island!), women's and children's health.

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. 

 

My credentials:  I graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2007. I 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 graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2007. I am a past instructor at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy where I taught advanced clinical and academic classes for four years. I have been asked to chair a research panel at the 2012 Third International Fascia Research Congress in Vancouver, the RMTBC international Persistent Pain conference in 2014 and the RMTBC Manual Therapy conference in 2016.  I teach postgraduate courses for RMTs, Physios, Osteos, and Chiros throughout BC as well as across Canada, the USA, and in Europe, both in English and French.

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).

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.

My mom was a nurse and I grew up watching her helping people, plus we had lots of animals. We took in injured animals that we nursed back to health, and I rode horses throughout my childhood. While I was in university taking the prerequisites for nursing, I was in a severe car accident from which I suffered several spinal injuries. Massage therapy was integral in my healing process, and a new path for me began. I have come to learn that touch therapy is so powerful. Whether someone is in pain, or just having a bad day, massage therapy can make a difference. While I’ve been working as a registered massage therapist for several years, my heart is in South Delta (grew up here!) and I’m so excited to start a practice here. I am a full believer in inter-disciplinary treatment plans which makes Collaborative Wellness the perfect fit for me.

 

In my spare time I am outdoors. I love to rollerblade, spending time on the beach, or even just walking. I’m also a family girl; I’m either with family and/or outdoors.

 

My credentials: I graduated from the Vancouver Collage of Massage Therapy in 2015, and am in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of BC (CMTBC) and a member of the Registered Massage Therapists Association of BC (RMTBC).

I have always been fascinated by human anatomy. Out of high school I was a personal trainer which was a great fit for me initially because of the pride I felt helping others to feel their best, and in fact helping them to do even more than they even thought they could. That being said, I knew I wanted to do more. After reflecting I decided upon massage therapy. While in school I was able to pull in my experiences in personal training to really help those with sports-related injuries or athletes looking to maintain and enhance their performance, and this has become a special interest of mine. I grew up in Ladner and moved away after high school, but recently have come back to Tsawwassen. I’m so excited to work in the heart of the village, where everyone seems to know and care about everybody else around them. 

 

My credentials: I have recently graduated with a diploma of Massage Therapy from WCCMT in New Westminster. I am also a BCRPA certified Personal Trainer. I will be writing my licensing board exams in the fall, and until them am able to provide relaxation and stress reducing massage therapy.

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.

I have a Bachelor of Human Kinetics from The University of British Columbia, and am a Certified Pedorthist (Canada) and Certified Pedorthic Technician (Canada).  I am a member in good standing with the College of Pedorthics, and the Pedorthic Association of Canada.

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.

I am embarking on a new path in my career, but for me, it is also a calling. During my time as a preschool kindergarten Directress, one thing that I continually heard from parents was “I wish I could take you home”.  Parents were craving for more; more knowledge, more skills, more understanding, ultimately more connection with their child. All parents face challenges, some common to many families, while other challenges are unique. I believe in the principle, that children are human beings deserving of respect and empathy and through the power of connection families can develop effective social-emotional relationships with each other, which in-tern, translates into effective social-emotional lives outside the family.

What I hope you will find here with me is a support system like no other. A support system that you can access and that can move in and out of the family with fluidity, a support system that is customized to your family’s needs, a support system that will empower you and your child to feel greater equipped to move forward effectively on your journey, equipped with tools to manage day-to-day life with a sense of ease and clarity.

Bowen Therapy

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.
