Chiropractor

 

Dr. Sean Stelting

Dr. Stelting decided to become a chiropractor at the age of 16 after his family chiropractor diagnosed a broken neck in his brother when the local hospital had missed it. To that end, he completed all the pre-med classes at Douglas College in New Westminster, and then moved to Bloomington, Minnesota. There, at Northwestern Chiropractic College, he completed his four year degree in just over three years by condensing his studies.

Dr. Stelting is also active in the community. He has volunteered and participated in the Relay for Life event for many years, helping raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. He is also active in sports, and can be seen participating in basketball, golf and running.

 
 
 

 

Registered Massage Therapist

Jennifer Garcia

Jennifer graduated from the Vancouver Massage Therapy School, a BC accredited School of Massage Therapy in 2009 with over 3,000 hours of training and education.

Jennifer uses a variety of therapeutic techniques mixed with soothing Swedish relaxation in most treatments.   She finds this combination is the most beneficial to healing.  Not only does it provide a focus to the areas of concern using techniques specific to addressing the complaints, it also provides the body and tissue with a way to rest and adjust to the changes that are taking place.  As a society that usually lives in overdrive, our sympathetic nervous systems (fight or flight) rarely give way to our parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest), a system which is key to staying healthy.  So by helping guide your body's tissue in the right direction, and allowing the"rest and digest" to come forth, it is her goal to help bring some equilibrium back to the patients life.

 
 
 

 

Body Work

 

Kari-Lynn Merritt

Kari is excited to be joining the Heritage Wellness team. She recently completed the full-time Bodywork massage program at the Vancouver School of Healing Arts. She is also certified in prenatal massage for expectant mothers.

Kari uses a holistic approach in her style of bodywork and massage, as she knows our bodies and minds are intimately interconnected. She incorporates different modalities including deep tissue, Swedish and breathwork. She became passionate about massage after it had played a huge part in her own healing journey.

Kari came to realize that many of us are living lives filled with stress that we often carry in our bodies. This can cause aching, tense muscles, sleep problems, depression and anxiety just to name a few. Our nervous systems are often taxed and we tend to move through life in a fight or flight response. Kari feels honoured to support her clients through their healing process by restoring balance, pain relief and creating more range of motion in their bodies. Kari looks forward to meeting new clients who need a welcoming and safe place to relax, heal and put selfcare as a priority in their lives.
