Practitioners

Merlita Cabalse, DOMP

Merlita has always been compelled by the holistic nature of Osteopathy, it’s core understanding that the body heals itself and the simple but profound idea of movement as an expression of health and life. She believes in finding and treating the cause of pain and dysfunction rather than simply treating the symptoms.

She enjoys treating people of all ages and seeing the improvement in their health. Merlita believes in patient education and treats both structurally and cranially, incorporating a wide range of techniques to suit patients needs in every body in a gentle yet focused way. She also brings her experience of many years in Physiotherapy to her practice. Her goal is to assist in optimizing patient’s health and well being through a holistic and alternative approach to health care. In her spare time Merlita loves spending precious time with her daughter, taking walks, loves to read whenever possible, cooking and enjoys cake decorating.

Merlita is very passionate about Osteopathy and she is continuing to study postgraduate courses in Osteopathy. Merlita Cabalse  is a diplomate of the Canadian Manual Osteopathy Examining Board (CMOEB).

Sheelagh Stewart, DOMP

Caring immensely for the comfort and care of others, Sheelagh is so passionate about her work and her connection with every person that walks through her door. Her journey into studying the capacities and complexities of the body mind complex began 15 years ago, and turned toward Osteopathy after struggling with her own chronic physical pain and stress. Her philosophy is focused on the unity and integration of the body as a whole, and its own innate ability toward recovery, healing and regulation. Sheelagh is a graduate of the National Academy of Osteopathy, and continues her studies in manual therapies and integrative care. She joined the graduating class (2016) of the Whole Health Medicine Institute (USA), led by Dr. Lissa Rankin (MD).

Candace Wight RRPr., Reiki Master 


Candace has been a Reiki Master and practitioner since 2015, completing four levels, trained in the Usui Shiki Ryoho System. In 2017 she added Certified Foot Reflexology Practitioner to her healing therapies.
Candace believes that everyone can and should have the ability to heal in all aspects of their lives. She became a Reiki Master and certified reflexologist because she wanted to be able to aid people on their journey to healing. Through accessing subtle energy systems in the bodies of her clients, she can help bring about rest and relaxation where it is possible. Rest and relaxation in the body can bring about an atmosphere for homeostasis to happen and give the potential for the body to do what it is supposed to do, heal. Heal emotionally, heal physically, heal mentally. In our ever-changing world Candace thrives on providing a safe space for gentle therapies to be used. We need to take care of ourselves.
When not with clients Candace is an abstract artist, avid gardener, world traveler (with her hubby and child in tow), house renovator, and now a teacher to 11-year-old daughter.
