Dr. Amber Chong
Dr. Amber Chong graduated summa cum laude from the University of Western States with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and a Bachelor of Science in human biology. Prior to this, she attained a Bachelor of Science in biomedical physiology and a Certificate of Forensic Studies from Simon Fraser University.
Growing up, Amber always enjoyed being active and started dancing at the age of 2. She fell in love with the movement and artistry dancing provided and was a competitive dancer for many years. Her interest in chiropractic began during this time as she saw how beneficial it was to see a chiropractor and learn what was causing the pain and be given tools to prevent it from happening again.
Amber has a patient-centered approach to chiropractic care and has clinical experience treating people of all ages and conditions, with an interest in prenatal care and children. Her treatment methods include diversified adjusting techniques, soft tissue therapy, and providing rehabilitative exercises for at-home care. She believes that chiropractic care is an excellent way for people to maintain physical wellness and prevent injuries, and that everyone from children to seniors can benefit.
In her spare time, you can find Amber going on nature walks with camera in hand, gardening amongst the flowers and vegetables, or reading a good book with a big cup of tea.

Shinpiden Reiki Master
Sean Rougeau is a Shinpiden Reiki Master using Usui Ryoho Reiki. Through many years of practice and training he has learned how to harness the universal energy around us to help people with their own natural ability to heal. He has worked with people throughout his career of 25+ years to support their learning and managing behaviours and emotions in a way that allows them to live up to their full potential. He has been able to use Reiki energy to help others regulate and balance themselves.
Working through Reiki, universal energy is transferred from the practitioner to the patient using a technique called ‘palm healing’ or ‘hands-on healing’ to promote emotional and physical restoration. Developed in Japan in the 1800’s, Reiki is a form of gentle energy healing. It uses gentle touch to reduce stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression. Reiki also helps to overcome insomnia and generate deep sleep and relaxation by balancing the body’s energy, so it can heal.
Sean is passionate about working with others and offering his skills as an energy healer. He continues to strengthen his skills to make a difference in people’s health and well-being. When Sean is not working, he enjoys spending time with his large family, playing ball hockey and travelling.
