Growing up in Hamilton and the Niagara Region, Dr. Dennis has always loved being involved in sports and recreational activities. It was this love that ultimately led him to enroll in the Sports Therapy program while at York University. While studying and applying his rehabilitation skills, he developed a greater appreciation of how magnificent the human body was; and he learned that the body had a remarkable ability to heal.
Following university, his passion for Human Anatomy and Function led him to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) where he learned the art, science, and philosophy of Chiropractic. It was while at CMCC that he learned the concept of Innate Intelligence, “the power that created the body, heals the body.” In 2001, upon his graduation from CMCC, he traveled to China to attend the WHO China-Beijing International Acupuncture Training Center where his studies included TCM, acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, tuina, and guasha (Graston). Throughout his years in practice, he has continued to upgrade his skills and has gained certification in ART, kinesio-taping, cranio-sacral therapy, functional cranial release, along with completing courses in chiropractic functional neurology. He also completed Dr. Joe Dispenza’s “Evolve your Brain Workshop” where he learned to assist people unlock their true health potential by assisting with psychological and emotional well being by removing stress through meditation, mindfulness, focused intentions, and visualization.
During his 16 years of practicing in primarily a Sports Rehabilitation setting, he has assisted many patients in overcoming some serious injuries by utilizing various modalities and soft tissue techniques along with detailed stretching and exercise programs, to assist with rehabilitating injured tissues.
However, throughout his years in practice, he is still amazed by patients that he had adjusted on a regular basis for their pain; would also report that many of their non-pain related symptoms such as sleep disturbances, digestive issues, heart burn, breathing difficulties, or headaches would also begin to resolve; many reported that they felt more energy or could think more clearly following regular adjustments. So following a decade of helping patients with their sports injuries, his mission is no longer just in helping to remove pain but on helping people become as healthy as they can be.
he lives an active lifestyle and likes to cycle, hike, ski, and run along with being involved in various sports including hockey, baseball, beach and court volleyball. He is very excited to be moving back to the Hamilton-Burlington area after 20 years in the Toronto, and is looking forward to raising a family and helping to spread awareness about Chiropractic health and wellness in the community.
