Dr. Jaspreet Kalsi, D.C.
Dr. Kalsi’s experience with chiropractic began when she was a teenager and was experiencing low back and foot pain. After witnessing the benefits of chiropractic care, she decided that becoming a chiropractor was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. She began her journey as a chiropractor at New York Chiropractic College in January of 2012, where she graduated in March 2015 with Summa Cum Laude honours and as valedictorian of her class. Following graduation, Dr. Kalsi moved back to her beautiful home of British Columbia to help serve her local community.
Dr. Kalsi believes that everyone can benefit from chiropractic care. Her approach to care involves assessing and treating each individual as a whole and creating treatment plans tailored to each individual’s health care goals. In addition to adjustments, Dr. Kalsi loves to use various soft tissue techniques, including therapeutic stretches and rehabilitation programs, in order to optimize a patient’s wellbeing and keep them injury-free.
Leila strongly believes in the body’s natural ability to heal itself if provided the right conditions to do so. This philosophy has led her to a career in Traditional Chinese Medicine particularly in acupuncture, being able to correct the body’s imbalances by promoting proper circulation. Such benefit can be seen in how she would alleviate pain by needling specific points in the body that are away from the painful spot like needling the hand for a whiplash thus avoiding further trauma in the area.
She completed her Acupuncture diploma from Tzu Chi International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is continuing her Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine education from the same institution. Currently, she is registered with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of BC.
During her free time, Leila loves going to Zumba, yoga, and other group fitness exercises. And on a sunny weekend, you would most likely see her hiking trails, camping or paddling with her kids and friends.
