Port Dalhousie | St. Catharines Chiropractor

Dalhousie Health & Wellness

Located in Niagara in the heart of Old Port Dalhousie.


Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back and neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs and headaches.


Acupuncture is among the oldest healing practices in the world. Acupuncture heals the body and mind while treating both immediate and long-term symptoms of a chronic injury.


Naturopathic medicine aims to use treatments that are safe, effective, with minimal side effects, to avoid suppressing symptoms whenever possible and to respect each person’s individual healing.

Dalhousie Health and Wellness is comprised of a passionate group of natural healthcare providers including a Chiropractor, a Naturopath and a Registered Massage Therapist.  Together, our team is dedicated to helping our patients achieve their best possible health by empowering people to live up to their optimal wellness potential. Patients receive undivided attention and individualized treatment plans based on their specific needs. We offer complete family health-care support; including sports injuries, women’s health, pediatrics and wellness care. It is our mission to facilitate healing patients by means of natural, safe and scientifically proven techniques. In the heart of  historic Port Dalhousie, we value our community, living well and loving life. Call and book your appointment today (289) 668-5433 .

Success Stories

A patient with a chief concern of fertility, on anti-depressants and thyroid medication, was having trouble conceiving a second child. She already had a deep meditation practice, so we meditated together during her acupuncture sessions. We used single homeopathic remedies for stress management, and gentle liver detoxification. She conceived within the year.

Patient presented with panic attacks, after a period of stress in her life. Her diet was already healthy, she exercised regularly, and had moved through the stressful event but was still having panic attacks daily. We started with a homeopathic combination to re-balance her nervous system, and an anti-oxidant supplement. Next we added liver drainage, and supplemented with micro-minerals. 1 month later she reported no acute panic attacks.
