  Spring 2014

Welcome to the 12th issue of our Newsletter. In this issue we have some great information on staying healthy this summer, while enjoying your favourite activities!  



A Message from our CEO


Wow, what a long winter,seemed like it would never end, but finally spring is upon us! And with spring comes a new sense of excitement, optimism and motivation. For me, spring also signals a return to spending much more time outside... biking, walking, running and yes, the dreaded yard work.


Spring is also a time of new growth, and things are no different at Optimum Wellness Centres. Our newest addition to OWC is up and running in High River - The talented team of Dr. Kristi Laycraft, DC, Dr. Dan Welbourn, DC, Hazel Barnes, RMT., Laura Redgate, AT, and Brittney Barr, RMT, Lisa Kennedy, LT, are available for your health and wellness needs.


Coming May 1st, OWC McKnight, offering Chiropractic, Massage Therapy, Acupuncture and Laser services.


We are also excited to announce the addition of Karin Kaufmann, a wonderful physiotherapist with over 20 years' experience at our Macleod Trail and Renfrew locations. She has a special interest in complex conditions and uses a holistic and hands-on approach. Dr. Jasdeep Sahota at our Sunridge and Trans Canada locations provides a holistic, personalized approach to chiropractic care which includes adjustments, soft tissue therapy, injury rehabilitation, and taping. And Dr. Josep Batinić at the Shawnessy location. He has worked as a personal trainer and exercise physiologist. He has been very involved in youth and college level sports and is eager to put this experience to good use.  


The OWC family now encompasses 24 clinics which gives easy access to Calgarians for Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy, Orthotics, Psychology and many more health services.

Watch for more exciting additions to the OWC family coming soon!

Benefits of Cupping                               Amber Fesser


The therapeutic benefits of cupping can best be explained by someone who has had the experience. But first of all, what the heck is cupping!

Cupping is an ancient Chinese form of medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin. The suction is created using heat or a mechanical device. There is evidence of cupping being practiced as early as 1000 BC in China....

Shin Splints                                             Dr. Gena Boris 

Spring means many different things for many of us but, for some it marks the beginning of marathon season here in Alberta. With it comes the long hours of training which can lead to pain and injuries. A common injury runners suffer is known as tibial stress syndrome or shin splints...
