Clear Path Chiropractic Health Centre is located in downtown Guelph next to the main library branch. There are two chiropractors at our clinic and yes, we are a husband and wife team. Our chiropractic approach is simple: combine hands on therapy with education on healthy habits.
In addition to a warm clinic atmosphere, we believe that good health starts with a healthy environment. When designing our clinic we chose non-VOC paints, reclaimed the original hardwood floors and used a water-based sealant. We also sought out Canadian made furniture, created a wind and solar powered website and have our cards and print materials made from recycled paper using non-toxic inks & dyes. We strive to create a comfortable and healthy clinic space for our patients.
We look forward to helping you to feel better & stay well.
Guelph chiropractors – Dr. Julie Gill and Dr. Mark Kubert
Dr. Julie GillAs a young child I knew that I wanted to be involved with helping people – I just didn’t know in which capacity I would be helping them in. Chiropractic was introduced to me early on through my uncle who was a chiropractor. I remember hearing about how he would help family members with painful migraines, neck pain and back spasms. Often he was called on for his experience with musculoskeletal problems, nutritional advice, and health ailments. The seed was planted and as I studied biology in university, I realized that I was not meant to be in a research field, but rather wanted to work in a clinical setting. I saw myself involved in the natural health field and chiropractic seemed like the natural choice. After receiving my Honours Bachelor of Science Degree at York University, I attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and attained my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2004.
I enjoy learning and have taken continuing education courses in Soft Tissue Therapy, Active Release Technique, Chiropractic and Pregnancy, Nutrition, Aging and Disease, and Radiographic Imaging in Chiropractic.
After 7 years of practice, I have seen the amazing results that chiropractic has in helping people get rid of pain, return back to the activities they love and function at their best. I try to practice what we preach and eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, practice active relaxation and get adjusted every few weeks. I look forward to continuing to help our patients reach their optimal health goals.
Dr. Mark Kubert I have been a Chiropractor for over seven years now. I grew up with a love for nature and being active outdoors was a regular part of that. Among other activities I was able to compete in mogul skiing where I learned the importance of training for both the body and mind. I didn’t always know that I wanted to be a chiropractor but I knew I liked learning about how the body functions, in particular the muscles and bones. As such, I studied kinesiology in my undergraduate years at university. Although I didn’t have a lot of experience with chiropractic at a young age, the more I learned about it during my undergrad years, the more it appealed to me – I liked the idea of helping the body to heal itself in a drugless, non-surgical, natural way. I was accepted into the program at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto and graduated four years later in 2004 with my doctor of chiropractic degree.
I have taken continuing education courses in Jaw Pain Disorders, Active Release Technique, Soft Tissue Therapy, Nutrition, Aging and Disease, and Chiropractic and Pregnancy. I also enjoy helping others to learn and spent 4 years facilitating learning with the first and second year medical students of UBC. I like to promote good health in the community – through both Healthy Learning Session workshops and also by being a run leader with the local running group. I still very much enjoy the outdoors. Hiking, mountain biking, skiing, running and just getting out and exploring the trails in Guelph and the surrounding area is good fun.
I feel fortunate that every day I get to help people feel better, live better and smile.
Registered Massage Therapist
I was born and raised in Guelph, leaving after 20 years to pursue my B.A. at Trent University and my B.Ed at Queens. After 15 years in Toronto I am excited to be bringing my massage practice home.
I graduated top of my class from ICT Kikkawa College in Toronto and am a member of the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario (CMTO) and the Registered Massage Therapists’ Association of Ontario (RMTAO). My schooling included the opportunity to work with patients with Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy and seniors living in long term care. My current clinical practice is varied including recreational athletes, desk jockeys and young aspiring athletes. I am equally skilled and happy to provide both therapeutic based massage treatments as well as relaxation massage. I have recently been studying a variation of Thai Massage modified to be done on a massage table and frequently mingle these techniques into my massage treatments.
I enjoy running and competing in triathlon and love being a part of helping people get back to the activities they love. As a competent knitter and quilter I am also aware of the aches and pains that can keep you from these and other similar endeavors. From my previous teaching experience, I am also effective at helping my clients understand their injuries and treatment, explaining concepts in easy to understand language and allowing clients to play a more active role in their recovery.
I have participated in numerous 5K, 10K and half marathon road races as well two Ironman races. I was recently thwarted by Hurricane Sandy from attempting my first marathon in New York City, but plan to return to the Big Apple in 2014.
