About Ina:
Ina qualified as a Registered Therapeutic Reflexologist by completing a comprehensive 2-year diploma course in 2003 with The School of Effective Reflexology Methods in Johannesburg, South Africa. The course syllabus consisted of advanced reflexology, anatomy & physiology, pathology, nutritional counselling, I.C.U. protocols, Aspects of Chinese medicine, homeopathy and phyto-medicine, biomechanics, Bach flower remedies and the basics of pharmacology and also included 300 hours of case studies and a thesis which Ina completed on cerebral palsy.

Ina's teacher and mentor, Liz Graham; a reflexologist for 35 years, administers the school and also teaches and lectures globally, most notably in China, Brazil and Italy. The course secured accreditation with the Department of Education and the Allied Health Professionals Council in South Africa and due to the professional nature of the course Ina was able to work in hospitals and I.C.U.

Ina's passion for therapeutic reflexology led to her lecturing the course for The School of Effective Reflexology Methods while also maintaining a full time, and successful, practice while in South Africa. Teaching reflexology was a highlight in her career which further ingrained her love for what is her passion and chosen life's path. She has offered many lectures and teaching in The School of Effective Reflexology Methods modality in Canada thus far.

This knowledge has given Ina an understanding and focus on treating the individual, and not simply the problems and symptoms they are experiencing. It is Ina's belief that each treatment is as unique as each individual, and she adapts to meet the specific needs and desires of her patients.

Ina's particular interest in fertility and pregnancy led to her undertaking a Doula's course to further enhance the health of mothers in her practice while she has also had a great deal of success in working with children. She prides herself on being a people person and it brings her great joy to be able to help others. As a result she welcomes a diverse group of ages and cultures to her practice and she treats every individual with the dignity, care and respect they deserve.

Ina is married with two daughters and came to Canada with her family in July 2007. She currently runs a successful practice at Health Matters and since coming to Canada has undertaken further study to enhance the energy side of her work. She has a particular interest in quantum healing and has completed a course in Quantum Touch, successfully incorporating it into her reflexology practice.

She is also currently undertaking another 3 year Earth Spirit medicine course to add to her melting pot of knowledge.

Ina believes that life's journey, which has brought her to where she is today, has added a richness to her life. She looks forward to sharing with others while assisting them in helping them find their own richness and balance.

My middle name should be Prevention. At the start of my career all I wanted was "to help people". Nursing felt like a great fit for me. After 15 years I realized I needed to move upstream and assist patients to avoid the ailments that seem to afflict most people.
Moving to Alberta in 2002 allowed me to refocus. I worked as a Chiropractic Technical Assistant / Office Manager for 14 years. Completing my CNPA (Certified Natural Products Advisor) I now know that I will always be learning and that is my first love. I also use A-K / muscle testing to help my clients find the perfect remedy for their health needs.
I look forward to seeing you in the store and helping you with your health goals.
Be Well - Naturally!

As a Phytotherapist (Medical Herbalist) my primary focus is on treating the individual person as opposed to the ailment or disease. I believe that every person has individual needs and aspects to what health looks like for themselves and should have individualized care and support that is adaptable to how you feel and what you encounter in your life. We all go through periods of time where burning the candle at both ends is not avoidable – these, as well as periods of transition, are the times where it is imperative to provide yourself and your body with support.

The art of a Phytotherapist (Herbalist) to create healing is through keen observation and assessment of the individual and knowing the specific herbs needed for that person, putting them in the correct formula together using the correct dosage and ratios.

In practice, I consult one-on-one with people on a variety of issues they may be experiencing such as menopause, thyroid issues, anxiety, depression, insomnia, cardiac and blood pressure issues, digestive issues, trauma and emotional issues, mood swings, PMS, SAD, Fibromyalgia, nerve issues, reproductive issues, digestive concerns and the list goes on. In seeking to treat with Plant medicine I focus on discovering what the person’s base constitution is, what the nature of their symptoms is, the story of the person and what brought them to the point they are at – as well I assess all mechanistic and organ systems of the body. Tools for assessment used are tongue and pulse diagnosis to give clues as to which organ systems may be in disharmony. With everything taken into consideration I then devise a treatment plan and create a plant medicine formula to address goals and desires for health.

About Dr Rebecca:
I believe that everyone is entitled do the things they love free from pain and feeling and looking great! Before I tell you more about my areas of interest, let me tell you more about myself: I spent the majority of my childhood in northern Alberta and much of that time was spent exploring nature. I became intrigued by the inherent power of nature to heal and to provide us with the tools to heal ourselves. Striving to understand the human body and nature from its smallest level up, I studied genetics at the University of Alberta. During this time I was fortunate enough to work with children with special needs, as well as working as a laboratory tech at U of A hospital. Along with my experience working as a clinic director for an orthopedic surgeon my experience provided me with a greater appreciation of the challenges faced in healthcare, as well as the need for health care providers to create a health care team. To take a part in providing the care I believe people deserve I moved to Toronto to attend the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, a fully accredited naturopathic medical college. I received over 1200 hours of clinical experience under the supervision of licensed Naturopathic Doctors, and over 3000 hours of in class training. This allowed me to develop treatment strategies and witness their success while joining my patients as they rediscovered their hobbies and passions, experienced increased energy and better relationships. I believe my role is to empower patients, address the whole person, provide proactive and complaint oriented care for acute and chronic conditions. My strategy is unique in that I strongly believe in meeting my patients where they're at in their lives and developing strategies that work best for each individual person. My areas of interest are fertility, pain management, pediatrics, implementing anti-aging and cosmetic strategies, digestive complaints, thryoid disorders and chronic disorders such as hypertension, heart disease, arthritis, allergies and skin conditions. I use a variety of modalities including nutritional counseling, acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture, traditional chinese medicine, botanical medicine, homeopathy, laboratory investigations, and injection therapies such as IV therapy and mesotherapy. Feel free to ask me how I can help you today!

About Lauren Mary:
Lauren's journey into Holistic Medicine began in 2010, when on a trip to India, she discovered the ancient healing art of Ayurveda. This inspired her to pursue studies at Wd Rose College of Natural Healing in Calgary, Alberta, where she graduated with a diploma in Clinical Herbalism in 2012. The field of holistic medicine is one that is continuously growing, and therefore Lauren believes she will always be a student of natural medicine; constantly growing and learning about how to achieve optimum health naturally. Lauren is currently a student at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, earning a diploma in Holistic Nutrition and believes this creates a well rounded approach in using foods as well as herbs in meal planning and healing. Her multi-faceted practice includes a range of modalaties that include botanical medicine, holistic nutrition, aromatherapy and flower essences with a focus on women's health, prenatal care, skin and digestive issues, psychological health and overall well-being. Lauren is also a DONA trained birth doula, and uses this knowledge to empower, educate and nurture women during their pregnancies, birth and motherhood. Understanding that healing is a conglomeration of body, mind and spirit; her practice is one that is holistic and treating to the whole person, rather than a symptomatic approach. Her passion involves creating custom, individualized wellness plans for her clients as well as educating others on how to incorporate healing herbs and nourishing foods into their lifestyles.Prior to joining Health Matters, she taught workshops and seminars on creating your own natural skincare and herbal remedies and is passionate about "doing it yourself!".
