Chiropractor Shelley Seguin D.C.

Dr Shelley has been sharing her passion for holistic wellness care and natural healing as a chiropractor for over 18 years. She will help guide you through the wellness triangle of physical, emotional and nutritional health to allow you to express your best YOU. Your quality of life sits in the centre of her care plan for you and your family.

You can hear Dr Shelley repeat “Motion is lotion” throughout the clinic. She wants you to understand that properly moving spinal joints allows optimal expression of your nervous system. With improved nerve function you will experience less discomfort and greater function allowing you to better enjoy “Life”.

As a young child Dr Shelley was introduced to chiropractic through her father. He was treated by Dr Pell, the one and only chiropractor in the whole city for his unrelenting back pain. After exhausting the traditional routes of pain care her dad finally found relief through his spinal adjustments. The whole family valued having him happy and free of pain and establishing a strong belief in the power of chiropractic care.

After earning her Bachelor of Science degree and bachelor of education degree from the University of Toronto, Dr Shelley pursed her Doctorate of Chiropractic at National College of Chiropractic in Chicago, Illinois. She was honoured to graduate Summa Cum Laude. Her post doctorate studies centred on Pediatric and pregnancy care as well as low force instrument adjusting techniques like Torque Release Technique.

Your healing is her number one priority and she is committed to putting you on the right path.


David Gabriele - Naturopathic Physician

Dr. David Gabriele, a naturopathic physician and registered acupuncturist, is primarily motivated by the need to be of use to others and to help people achieve their health goals. His interest in the often overlooked wisdom of the past led him to Traditional Chinese Medicine and a diploma in acupuncture. In an attempt to complement and strengthen the traditional knowledge, he completed McMaster University's Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program and has found that a marriage of the ancient wisdom with modern science produced the greatest results for his patients. He has been a practicing acupuncturist since 2008. With a desire to expand his capabilities and further his knowledge in clinical medicine, he completed the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine program at CCNM in 2016.

Dr. Gabriele specializes in nutrition, pain & musculoskeletal issues, digestive problems, anxiety & mood problems, weight loss and general diet & health improvement consultation, although he has experience in helping people with many other issues. He has over 20 years experience teaching Taiji, Qigong, meditation and self-defence. Dr. Gabriele loves to empower people to take control of their lives and become active in their own care. What else can one ask of life than to leave people in better shape than how you find them?
