  • Sheri Rink Dip. PT, ACup, RYT

    My bio is a long list of “Thank You’s”. I know I am only here because of those around me and the depth of gratitude runs deep. For those that do not already know, I graduated Physiotherapy from the Krankengymnastik Schuele, Suelfeld, Germany in 1995. I worked in the hospital environment in Germany before returning to Canada in 1997. After establishing my license with the College of Physical Therapist of Alberta, I went to work in a number of different fields of physiotherapy within Alberta. I have learned much from this career and I have learned equally from my clients and the text books. I look forward to assisting you with your health concerns.

  • Donna LaRocque BScPT, CAFCI, CCRT

    I graduated in 1979 from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Therapy. This was only the beginning of my lifelong love affair with physiotherapy and learning. I have been privileged to work with and treat many people over the years that have challenged me and caused me to grow in ways I would never have dreamed of 35 years ago. I have developed an interest in the complexities of treating chronic pain, children, Women’s Health issues and animal rehab. These areas of interest have led me to take many additional areas of training such as acupuncture, chronic pain and pelvic pain courses, body awareness courses, and to become certified in animal rehab among many other courses. I teach Canine and Equine Rehabilitation and it has become an exciting part of my career.

    I love being a physical therapist and working with people and animals to help them met their goals to the best of our collective ability. I look forward to working with you to help you met your goals.

    I have always enjoyed massage, or at least the idea of it, so after graduating high school I decided to look into a program.  I went back to school as a mature student and graduated from the Grant MacEwan Massage Therapy program in 2012.  Since then I have been in a clinic setting and gotten to work with all types of wonderful people and help them feel better.  I like taking new courses and learning new techniques to further expand my knowledge base and the treatment I can provide.  I love deep tissue and therapeutic massage and I have recently gotten into essential oils and have learned how combining them with massage can be a powerful healing tool.

    I am originally from Ontario but have had the opportunity to live in Manitoba, Nunavut and now am happy to call Spruce Grove, Alberta home. My calling for reiki came to me while I was overseas in Thailand. I have always been in tune with energy but the universe sent me a sign I could no longer avoid. As I was walking up a long set of stairs and the sun was beating down on me, I looked at my feet and the thought came through my head “this would be hard for you to do on crutches”. I have never hurt myself before in my life so thought that was a very odd thing to think. The next thought that came through my mind was “if something was to happen to you while you are here (in Thailand), it would be the universe’s way of telling you to pursue reiki.” Three days later, I dislocated my knee and ended up in a Thai hospital on crutches. Needless to say, I got the message loud and clear and became a reiki practitioner. Reiki has helped me in so many ways I can’t even describe. I now experience so much less anxiety and am much more in tune with my body on an energetic level, which I used to suppress when I was young. I am so passionate about the practice and would love to allow you to experience all the wonderful benefits.
