Jackie is very excited to be returning to Clayton part time! Having lived in the lower mainland for most of her life, she has developed a passion for being active outdoors. Through that, she has also developed deep understanding of the importance of movement for overall wellness, and taking care of our bodies to keep moving.

A graduate of the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2018, Jackie absolutely loves her career as a Registered Massage Therapist. Since graduation, she has been focused on creating a very patient-centered approach to massage therapy – it is important that patients are informed and take part in the decision-making process when it comes to their care.

Katie Alvarez

Katie Alvarez

Registered Massage Therapist

Katie graduated in 2014 from West Coast College of Massage Therapy and has practiced in both clinics and spas over the years giving her a wide range of experience with different patients and their needs. She became inspired to become an RMT in her early twenties when she was looking for a way to combine her love of working with her hands and her desire to help others. West Coast College of Massage Therapy offered a weekend course to learn basics and give a taste of the program. At the end of this weekend course, she knew this was the career path for her!
Katie believes that each body is different and needs specialized and unique care and works hard to apply individualized care to each and every patient she works with. Over the years, she has taken several continued education courses surrounding application of deep pressure, rehabilitation exercises, and the benefit of yoga stretches and exercises to continue the benefits of massage at home.
Although her passion lies in helping everyone live as pain-free and healthy as possible, she does have a special interest in pre- and postnatal care. Especially being a Mom and having experienced it herself.

Tanya Khabra

Tanya Khabra

Chiropractor

All my life, I’ve had a fascination with how the body works and how to keep it naturally healthy. This passion led me to pursue my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology at SFU. Along the way, I stumbled upon the world of chiropractic and I was in awe! As a chiropractic assistant, I saw hundreds of patients come to the clinic in pain and leave feeling significantly better, without the use of drugs! I was—dare I say it—hooked!

A year later I moved to Portland, Oregon where I started the 4 year Doctor of Chiropractic program at the University of Western States. Fast forward to today, and I’ll tell you that chiropractic isn’t just about pain relief. It’s about getting well and staying well. It’s about allowing your body to function the best it can! As your chiropractor, it would be my pleasure to help you move towards your full potential. Don’t let my size fool you. I may be small but I am mighty! Learn more at www.drkhabra.ca.
