Regulated Therapies

I am a Physiotherapist and certified lymphatic therapist and am involved with ongoing education regarding exercise with cancer (PiNC and STEEL exercise programs). 

As one of the founders of the "KCC", I am dedicated to help those with cancer live in our community with the best supports possible.

I have been helping people live well with cancer for the last decade.  As a physiotherapist, I help people to live their best life post cancer diagnosis.
With one on one focused hands on therapy, I guide you to release your tight tissue, suggest exercises for strengthening and greater ease of movement that when combined help you return to what you love doing.

Colette Swain
Registered Massage Therapist

I have been supporting people with varying health conditions for 10 years. I believe in supporting each client wherever they are in their journey towards greater health and well-being. I offer a warm and welcoming private space to explore all the chapters of life. Having a space to discuss your experience can offer warmth from the pain and discomfort of treatment, emotions, and the challenges of daily living.

If you or someone you know is facing cancer, you might benefit from having a confidential space to explore all that comes along with a cancer diagnosis.

Feel free to contact me for a free consultation to see if I am the right person to support you.

At Wild Roots we have a special interest in helping to restore the physiological and emotional health for those living with or recovering from a cancer diagnosis.

A core philosophy at Wild Roots is that health is a state of

I am a registered acupuncturist with the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Association of BC.

The practice of Chinese medicine can help people manage the anxiety and overwhelm of being diagnosed with cancer, to reduce some of the uncomfortable side effects from chemotherapy and radiation treatments, as well as regain their health following treatments including surgery.
