Naturally Balanced was established in 2014.
However, this practice first opened its doors over 20 years ago as a Chiropractic and Massage clinic. We have since expanded to offer additional services including Naturopathic Medicine, Contemporary Medical Acupuncture, and dynamic cupping. Naturally Balanced is owned and operated by Chiropractor Dr Melissa Reinke, who has been a practitioner at this location since 2011.

Naturally Balanced is a safe space. We welcome and value diversity in religion, race, gender, sexual orientation and ability.

Team Bio's

Dr. Melissa Reinke

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. I have a broad patient base and enjoy working with people from all walks of life. While my focus is on Pregnancy and Postpartum rehabilitation, I treat a wide variety of conditions including: acute and chronic injuries, repetitive sprain/strains, WCB claims, Motor Vehicle Accident claims, headaches, 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 if my patients understand what is causing their pain and how certain movements will make it worse or better, then they will be empowered to help themselves heal 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 greatly enjoy the challenge of balancing life as a wife, 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 doing resistance training and am constantly expanding my knowledge in rehabilitation to better my own functional training, as well as to provide my patients with a more comprehensive treatment approach.

Dr. Candice Staniek

I graduated from Bastyr University in Washington state and practice as a Licensed Naturopathic Doctor. This is actually my second career- my first being an internal auditor in Calgary's oil and gas industry. I've found that being an entrepreneur and a Naturopath has been a perfect combination. When I work with my patients, I typically incorporate a variety of tools such as: herbs, nutrition, counselling, physical medicine, neural therapy and frequency specific microcurrent. I believe in the healing power of the body (The Vis), and my job is to provide the right tools in order to facilitate the healing process and to empower my patients to be their best selves. In my free time you'll find me out in nature, reading, snuggling with one of my cats, spending time with my partner, or meditating.

Nicole Lewis

Hi! My name is Nicole and I graduated with my diploma in Massage Therapy from Mount Royal University in Calgary, AB. I work with many different populations including: athletes, pregnancy and postpartum, pediatrics and geriatrics. Yes, even babies and children can benefit from Massage Therapy! I enjoy the challenge of having a wide variety of clientele who range from having incredibly complex conditions, to those who just want to relax. I chose Massage Therapy as a profession because I've always taken an interest in the human body and the way it moves, and wanted to help people feel, move and perform to the best of their ability. I’ve seen the huge impact Massage Therapy can have on someone’s overall mental health and physical wellbeing, and I pride myself on ensuring that ALL of my treatments, even relaxation, include a therapeutic component.

I use a variety of techniques during my treatments including: dynamic cupping; myofascial release; trigger point therapy; passive stretching; joint mobilization; and my specialty, deep tissue massage. I pride myself on taking the time with my clients to educate them on their conditions, as I believe that understanding the cause of your pain/dysfunction is an important step in rehabilitation. I take special interest in nerve entrapments, including thoracic outlet syndrome, sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as lower back and hip pain. I am also experienced in post Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) care. Each of my treatments and homecare plans are customized to my client’s individual needs, using a clinical and intuitive approach to maximize recovery. My treatment plans are also designed to fit in with your busy schedule.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking through the mountains with my partner and my dog, doing yoga and exploring the abundance of markets and other outdoor events Calgary has to offer.

Michelle Van Dyk

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 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.
