ABOUT ME

Dr. John completed his undergraduate studies in Kinesiology at York University before moving on to Chiropractic College in the United States. He graduated from UBCC in Connecticut in 2002 with a Doctorate in Chiropractic, followed by studies abroad in Beijing, China where he completed his diplomate in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. He has trained in various techniques including Gonstead, Sacral-Occipital, Cranial and Webster/Pediatric. In 2012, he completed certification in Functional Cranial Release in Sarasota Florida to become one of the first Chiropractors in Canada to offer this unique endonasal balloon procedure to patients suffering from chronic ENT conditions and post concussion syndrome.

 

In addition to his academic studies, Dr. John has a growing passion and interest in Eastern Philosophy such as Buddhism and Hindu teachings. For more than a decade, he has studied and practiced Vedanta and Meditation practices, recently completing a six month training program as a Samadhi Meditation Teacher under the tutelage of Luang Phor Viriyang at the Willpower Institute.  He has completed several in-depth lecture studies and readings from the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda as well as texts like The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Bhagavad Gita and Bhagavata Purana. Studying and practicing the various Yoga Philosophies has given him a spiritual and holistic perspective on life and healing.  Combining his spiritual inclination with 20 years of clinical experience and chiropractic technique has positioned him as a sought after practitioner and guest speaker in the health and wellness industry.
