Meet the Doctors of Peak Health and Wellness

Dr. Sheila Keber, D.C.

As a 9 year old, it was clear to me that chiropractic was my calling…

Brooklin Chiropractor Dr. Sheila Keber

There was something so positive and energetic about being at this kind of health care clinic and I seemed to always feel healthier when I left.

I had presented to my chiropractors office with some low back pain that had come on during a soccer game. My dad had been a long time patient of chiropractic and had been told that it could help me through my injury. On the way home from my initial examination, I said, “Mom, I want to be a chiropractor”. At my second visit, my mom was sure to inform my chiropractor of my new career path and a life changing mentoring relationship began.

Even as a child, I spent hours shadowing my chiropractor in her office. She would let me be there to volunteer my time and she even began to introduce me to her patients as “Dr. Keber” right from the very beginning! She would use large scientific words describing neurology, anatomy and physiology as she treated her patients and I would nod as if I understood. Truthfully, I had no idea what she was talking about, but I just enjoyed watching her teach and inspire others to choose health as a way of life through chiropractic care. As a child, chiropractic was magic to me because it naturally unlocked the healing power of the body. It is amazing to see what the human body is capable of when we remove the stress that interferes with the body’s natural tendency towards health.

It was an amazing feeling when, within my first year of practice, one of my patients mentioned that her son had told her that he was interested in becoming a Chiropractor as well! I had come full circle!

My Philosophy…

Chiropractic is a form of health care based on the study of the nervous system and its role in sustaining health. Our primary concern is evaluating interference to the nervous system and eliminating it to ensure normal healthy function and life. The nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, spinal nerves and peripheral nerves that lead to every system, organ, tissue and cell of your body. Your nervous system is so important that it monitors every other system in your body, detects your changing needs and then controls and coordinates every response necessary for proper adaptation, learning, development and survival.

Quite simply, chiropractic care involves detection and analysis of physical interference to the nervous system, and the reduction of interference to the nervous system through the application of specific chiropractic adjustments. By progressively freeing your nervous system of interference, chiropractic will eliminate symptoms and consequently allows you to more clearly and accurately perceive your changing needs. As a result, it restores your healing capabilities for increased energetic function and vitality.

In my office, I use a combination of touch, technology and orthopedics to determine how chiropractic can best help to restore proper function and remove the stress from your nervous system. It is safe and effective for the whole family where each and every patient is given a unique treatment plan, tailored to their specific health needs.  I am a Certified Webster Technique Provider, a graduate of the Medical Acupuncture Course at McMaster University (Extended Fundamental Level), Certified Kinesio Tape Provider, Certified Graston Technique Provider (M2 Advanced Level) and Certified in Activator Methods Chiropractic Technique (Basic Level 1).  I am also excited to offer sports injury management and rehabilitation in my practice, to keep my active patients functioning at their very best!

After graduating from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2006, I began my practice in Newmarket, Ontario as an Associate Chiropractor in a busy multidisciplinary clinic with a sports injury focus. We have recently chosen Brooklin as a place to set up roots closer to our family, friends and my twin sister, Sierra. In our spare time, you will find Paul and I outdoors, enjoying downhill skiing, boating, running and golf, although with my golf game, it’s not always guaranteed to be an enjoyable experience! My weekly chiropractic adjustments keep me at my very best, have definitely won me a few longest drive competitions, and continue to allow me to live an active lifestyle free of pain and free of nervous system interference!

Enough about me! How can I help you and your family improve your health with natural chiropractic care?

Dr. Sarah Simison, D.C.

Brooklin Chiropractor

I like to keep active, and I enjoy new challenges, and adventures. About 9 years ago, I decided to challenge myself to my first Triathlon. It was great, and I loved the combination of activities. However as I ran, I began to have hip pain. That was the first time I visited a chiropractor. Through adjustments, soft tissue techniques, and home exercises, I began to feel better, and my running began to improve.

Three years later, as a second year student at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, I took on the new challenge of running my first half-marathon. I found something methodic about long runs, and enjoyed challenging myself to higher speeds in short workouts. But again, the more I trained, the more my body protested. I began treatment with one of the Interns at the College, and with her care, was able to continue training at my best, and was able to perform when race day was upon me. She helped not only with my lower back, hips and knees, but also with an acute injury to one of the small bones in my foot. I could not believe how much my pain decreased when my foot was adjusted.

Even as a Chiropractor, I am constantly amazed at the results our patients experience with our therapy. It makes me feel great every day to know that my patients are able to participate in the activities of their choice, work more comfortably, and challenge themselves to reach new achievements, with my help and medical support.

I believe that a healthy lifestyle includes taking care all facets of your health. Your aches and pains may result from constant computer work, heavy physical work, recreational pursuits, weekend activities or elite athletics, but your body has the ability to handle your daily challenges and achieve your goals. Regardless of the reason, I am happy to provide comprehensive, individual treatment that focuses on your specific aches and pains, and would like to help you take control of your health, optimize your physical abilities, and live a healthy lifestyle.

My active lifestyle began early. I was an avid figure skater, swimmer, basketball player and snowboarder. I graduated from the University of Windsor with a degree in Human Kinetics, majoring in Movement Science. During University I worked as a therapist with the Varsity Football Team for three years. I also pursued my love of the water, and was a lifeguard/swim instructor for 10 years. I followed my interest in the study of human movement to Toronto, and attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, where I graduated with Clinic Honours. CMCC is the world renowned leader in evidenced-based chiropractic education.

I strive to continue to learn and pursue post graduate continuing education in order to constantly improve my abilities as a Doctor. I am a Certified Active Release Techniques® Provider (ART®), a Certified Graston Technique® Provider, a Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Provider, and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).

I design a specific treatment plan for each of my patients, focusing on your individual strengths and weaknesses. Your personal treatment plan will help you take control of your body so you can live a healthy, active lifestyle.

I am an active member of the Ontario Chiropractic Association, The Canadian Chiropractic AssociationCanadian Memorial Chiropractic College and a registered member of the College of Chiropractors of Ontario.

Dr. Lindsay Self, N.D.

Dr. Lindsay SelfAs a Naturopathic Doctor, I create individualized treatment plans that include realistic changes to get you to back to health and achieve your goals. I believe small changes can make a big difference and that health can come from realistic little tweaks here and there. Let’s start with where you’re at and go from there!

I create both a short-term and long-term plan for you, right from the start. We will always address nutrition and lifestyle to make sure you’re on the right track. Don’t worry, complete overhauls don’t happen unless asked! I use herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, and acupuncture as my primary modes of treatment. I don’t believe in “supplementation just because it’s healthy”, but I prefer to stick with targeted and evidence-supported therapies.

I love working with women’s health concerns (fertility, painful periods, PCOS, etc), digestive “issues”, and pain management, though I do welcome all health concerns. If I don’t know the answer, I promise I’ll find out. If you’re not sure if naturopathic medicine is right for you, come in for a complimentary 15-minute consultation and we can have a quick chat!

Why naturopathic medicine for me?

I decided Naturopathic Medicine was right for me when I kicked my migraines to the curb. I was fed up and didn’t want to take daily medication. Not that I’m opposed to medications entirely, but it just seemed like something else was going on. With the help of my ND, we looked at all possible causes and, I’m happy to say, they are now few and far between.

I love working with physiology, I love how effective natural therapies can be, and I love being able to spend time with my patients to actually listen to their concerns. If you have a list of concerns, I’d love to hear it. If you’d like a better understanding of what may be going on. My goal is to create healthcare teams that have our patients at the centre of our interests. Let’s all work together to get you better.

Professionally and Academically:

I completed my BA from the University of Toronto and after a number of years stuck in a cubicle, I went on to complete my 4-year ND program at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto in 2010 and a subsequent 2-year Clinical Residency position. I am licensed by the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy – Naturopathy (BDDT-N) in Ontario, which is soon to become the College of Naturopaths of Ontario, and continue to teach our future NDs at CCNM as a teaching assistant for orthopedics. I’m also a certified FirstLine Therapy® practitioner and Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture provider.
