Dr. Morris Gasparin

Chiropractor

Morris-web-photo-e1428277401956I chose to pursue a career in Chiropractic medicine following a lengthy recovery from a serious automobile accident. I was 18 years old and sustained 3 spinal fractures in my lower back. After three years of rehab, my condition failed to improve. In 1986 while studying at UBC, my future wife encouraged me to see a Chiropractor. I was impressed by how quickly my condition improved after a series of Chiropractic treatments.

After getting married, we moved to Toronto to go to Chiropractic College together. When school was completed, we moved back to Vancouver and are now raising two wonderful boys.

Since graduating from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1994, I have continued to pursue extensive post-graduate training in developmental kinesiology, biomechanics and soft-tissue rehabilitation. I utilize a variety of evaluation and treatment methods developed by leaders in different fields of manual medicine from around the world. I owe my clinical success to the ground-breaking work from these gifted and passionate people. In the words of Sir Isaac Newton, “If I have seen further, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants”.

I have been an instructor for the Motion Palpation Institute® (MPI) teaching post-graduate seminars to doctors in Canada and the United States. I am full body and master certified in Active Release Techniques® and am an ART provider at IRONMAN® events including the world championships in Kona, Hawaii.

I avidly enjoy skiing, mountain biking, weight training and hiking with my Labrador retriever, Bella. I am passionate about my family and my church. I believe that true wellness is more than the absence of infirmity but encompasses one’s physical, mental and spiritual well being.

Dr. Lana Gasparin

Chiropractor

I grew up in Kamloops playing sports and being outdoors. I met my wonderful husband while studying at the University of British Columbia. We were running and weight lifting partners at school. After completing our undergraduate education, we got married and moved to Toronto to begin Chiropractic school together. I completed my Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1995 and moved to Vancouver to be closer to family. We have been blessed with two incredible boys Matthew and Michael.

I offer a holistic, hands-on approach to healthcare and utilize various treatment modalities which include manipulation, mobilization and ART (Active Release Technique) to help alleviate pain and speed injury recovery.

I have a special interest in promoting an anti-inflammatory diet which improves healing of the musculoskeletal system. I love to cook and help people prepare healthy meals for their family. As well, I continue to live an active lifestyle with walking my dog, going to the gym and playing with my kids. My goals are to empower and educate my patients to take an active role in their own health and well-being so that they can live life to the fullest.

Dr. Devon Penner

Chiropractor

My journey to become a Chiropractor began when I needed treatment for a chronic arm injury that resulted from heavy manual labor. It was only with Active Release Technique that I found relief. I regained full use of my arm and the pain has never returned. I made the decision to join the profession that gave me such lasting improvement where others had failed.

After attending Trinity Western University I moved to San Jose, California to complete a Chiropractic Doctorate. I graduated with Magna Cum Lauda honors and as Salutatorian of my class. I moved back home to White Rock and shortly after I met my future wife. I soon learnt she had been suffering for years with frequent and severe migraines. It was through successfully alleviating her symptoms that I found a deep passion for the treatment of neck pain and migraines.

In order to be constantly learning and evolving I have pursued and utilize numerous post-graduate certifications including Active Release Technique (ART), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASM), Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and am a certified shoulder examiner and treatment provider.

I am passionate about my family of three, strength training and the Seattle Seahawks. My goal is to not only get patients out of pain but to help them achieve a higher level of health and performance than they thought possible.

Debbie Moore

Nutritionist

I am a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant, and I graduated from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver. I focus on identifying and correcting nutritional imbalances that lead to poor health through the therapeutic power of real, whole food. My individualized diet and lifestyle programs are designed to empower and educate my clients to improve their health and live fuller, happier lives. With the ever-changing maze of conflicting and confusing nutrition information available today, I help to guide and simplify their journey.

At the age of 48, suffering health issues of my own, I left the public service industry and went back to school, not only to learn how to improve my own health, but to learn how to educate others. I was becoming increasingly frustrated with how mainstream medicine often fails to recognize poor nutrition as a significant factor in so many common health disorders today, and felt a strong desire to share this knowledge.

My personal passions include my family, the outdoors, great food and music. I believe vibrant health is within reach, and it is my goal to help get you there!

At age 7, I experienced the devastating death of my mother. I became interested in finding ways to live a full life after traumatic events and losses. These include death, divorce, loss of job, loss of health and even loss of trust experiences. “Everyone Matters, Everyone Counts” became my driving motivation.

After graduating from Harding University in the USA with a B.A., Special Education (Developmental Disabilities), I completed courses in pastoral counselling and went on to work as a Women and Children’s Ministry Coordinator for 26 years. I have been a Registered Professional Counsellor for the last 10 years and in Nov 2016 earned the designation Master Practitioner in Clinical Counselling (MPCC). In 2016 I also transitioned into full time teaching, training and counselling.

Fueled by a desire to put effective emotional storm-calming tools into the hands of teens and young adults, I developed IDENTIFY and Map It! It’s a visual and verbal map to help you understand any life experience big or small https://www.facebook.com/identifyandmapit/. To further my goal to offer effective tools for Grief Recovery to your community, I certified in the well known Grief Recovery Method. The Action Program for Moving Beyond Death, Divorce, and Other Losses https://www.griefrecoverymethod.com/.

I teach emotional wellness, self-awareness and healthy relationship tools to teens and university students, in weekend workshops and to individuals. I work in Canada, the USA and internationally. I recently trained disaster relief psychologists and social workers for HOPEworldwide Philippines. I also offer online counselling.

My passion is putting effective tools into everyday peoples’ hands, who are looking for a way to build emotional strength and move forward into the life they choose. My husband, Brian, and I enjoy the outdoors and traveling to visit our 2 children and 6 grandchildren, as well as contributing to the growth and sustainable livelihood of disadvantaged children and adults.
