Dr. Melissa Reinke, DC

I graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2011 and have been privileged to serve the community of Highland Park and surrounding area, ever since.

My clinical focus is in Prenatal and Postpartum care- I really enjoy educating and empowering my patients while they navigate their perinatal journey. I am certified as a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist (PPCES), and a Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist (FRCms) and have additional training in Cesarean birth recovery. I also work with patients who have Complex Chronic Postpartum injuries, such as pelvic pain, incontinence, prolapse, diastasis recti, and discogenic neuropathy. It brings me so much joy to be able to provide answers to those who have struggled for years, if not decades, with these postpartum symptoms. 

In addition to my perinatal work, I am skilled at treating a wide variety of conditions including: acute and chronic injuries, repetitive sprain/strains, vertigo, Motor Vehicle Accident injuries, headaches, nerve impingements and neuropathy, TMJ dysfunctions, concussions/Post Concussion Syndrome, and preventative/maintenance care. I absolutely love what I do and I especially love sharing my knowledge with others. I strongly believe that by understanding the cause of your pain, you are better able to manage it and prevent re-injury.

I was born and raised in rural Alberta, and after living in both Edmonton and Toronto, I now happily call Calgary my forever home. My husband and I welcomed our daughters in 2018, and 2021 and I'm enjoying the challenge of balancing life as a mom and business owner.

In my free time I love spending time outdoors- camping, hiking, skiing, and fishing. I'm also an avid reader and love nothing more than sitting outside with a good book. I enjoy lifting weights and resistance training, and am constantly expanding my knowledge in rehabilitation... both to better my own functional training AND my patients'.

Dr. Caitlin Batting, ND

I graduated from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, and practiced in Vancouver for nearly four years before deciding to move my family back to Calgary. I treat all patients and all conditions but have a practice focus on hormones & weight loss, pregnancy/postpartum, infertility, menopause, and graceful aging. I practice evidence informed medicine, so your care is based on scientific research, my clinical experience and your own data and labs.

I am trained in acupuncture, auricular (ear) acupuncture, IV vitamin therapy & Bowen Therapy and like to include these physical therapies along with nutritional counselling, herbs and supplements to bring your body back into balance.

I myself am a new mom, and throughout my pregnancy (with a surprising case of gestational diabetes), I realized how much more support is needed on top of the conventional 15 minute doctor visits. I am passionate about helping women through these big life transitions- pregnancy, postpartum and menopause.

When I am not in the clinic, you can find me spending time with my family, outdoors, working out or exploring Calgary's food scene.

Shilpa Kumar, MPT

My name is Shilpa and I'm a Pelvic health and Orthopaedic Physiotherapist. After moving to Canada in 2014, I continued my Physiotherapy career and was fortunate to receive further training and mentorship in the area of Chronic pain management, pelvic floor rehabilitation, Endometriosis rehabilitation, pregnancy and pelvic girdle pain, breastfeeding support and infant Physiotherapy. I developed my passion for pelvic health while living with my own pelvic pain experience and navigating through the journey of recovery.

I offer Physiotherapy for pelvic pain conditions, pain with physical intimacy, pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence and constipation. I have a special interest in helping clients thrive through their journey around pregnancy and postpartum, supporting them with preparation for labour and delivery, and safe return to activities in the postpartum period.

I offer Physiotherapy support for moms and babies who are breast and/or bottle feeding. This includes Positioning and hold, torticollis, neck and jaw muscles, Plagiocephaly, mastitis and plugged duct.

I have 15+years of experience working with clients with Orthopedic conditions such as hypermobility and EDS, low back pain, shoulder pain, arthritic conditions and sports injuries. I am currently taking the Ehlers-Danlos Society ECHO program for Allied Health Professionals.

I provide a safe space for clients to share their story, learn about their bodies, make decisions on their health goals that are meaningful to them, and actively participate in their treatment plan. I believe in working along side clients to identify the root cause of the problem and use a whole person approach for treatment.

Outside clinic, I enjoy long walks with my fur baby, Jasper and spending time outdoors with my husband and daughter.

Michelle Van Dyk, RMT

I graduated with honours from MH Vicars School of Massage Therapy in Calgary, AB. As a former competitive dancer, I'm all too familiar with injuries and how effective massage therapy can be in the recovery process. After completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance, with a concentration in choreography and performance, I found my interest in the human body and how it functions and moves.

I'm skilled in a variety of techniques including therapeutic, deep tissue, trigger point release, joint mobilization, myofascial stretching and relaxation massage- bringing passion and expertise to every treatment. My goal is to identify underlying patterns such as muscle imbalances, postural changes and movement dysfunctions that lead to pain-tension cycles, and subsequently create an individualized treatment plan to address clients’ concerns. I like to educate my clients in customized self-care, empowering them to be active participants in their healing process and continued recovery. Influenced by my years of training and passion for exercise, I believe that movement is often the right medicine for combating aches and pains.

I've recently added dynamic cupping as a treatment option to include with your massage. This unique modality increases blood flow to the tissue, releases fascia that can otherwise be difficult to treat, and improves overall muscle function. It also feels great!

In addition to my massage therapy services, I'm also a certified Laser Therapist. Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, light based treatment that impacts tissue on a cellular level. It is highly effective for the treatment of pain, inflammation, nerve regeneration, and scar repair. It's a great option for treating arthritic conditions, neuropathy, sprain/strain injuries, and for post cesarean scar healing. 

In my spare time you can find me in the mountains hiking, backpacking, paddle boarding, snowboarding, and camping and spending time with my partner and dog.

Adele Callfas, RMT

I'm a registered massage therapist with years of experience under my belt. I first started my massage journey in 2008, then took a few years off before returning to school to complete my second year.

Along with my ability to help with most conditions and work intuitively to promote a healthier body, I also work closely with expecting families, assisting them during the prenatal and postpartum period.

I am certified as both a birth and postpartum doula, and am VBAC certified. I'm also a Perinatal Educator and have created a course with my fellow doula bestie called 'Born Ready, Preparing for Birth and Beyond'.

I have my infant massage teachers certificate, and a love for all things pregnancy, birth, and beyond. I'm currently enrolled in hypnobirthing, and am continuously completing small workshops to fine tune my skills.

Whether you are an elite athlete, an expecting mom, or a "desk-jockey", I've seen it all and would love to work with you.
