dR. JENNIFER YAKIMISHYN
Dr. Jennifer Yakimishyn was introduced to chiropractic after she suffered a debilitating figure skating injury while in high school. The injury forced her to stop skating as she could hardly walk and even struggled to sit up straight. She had tried all the usual forms of pain relief but nothing seemed to help. A family friend suggested trying a local chiropractor and it was at that moment that she started to appreciate the innate healing properties of the human body.
This experience led Dr. Jennifer to the University of Western Ontario where she graduated with her Honours BSc in Kinesiology. During her time there she led the Western Mustangs figure skating team to multiple wins at the provincial level while also working as a professional skating coach for young children. She then moved on to LIFE University, where she graduated magna cum laude and was named Salutatorian of her class. While at LIFE, she completed extra certifications in the Webster Technique and Torque Release Technique, and was also an active member of the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association. Her continued involvement with the ICPA has allowed Dr. Jennifer to develop the knowledge and experience needed to focus on paediatric, pregnancy, and family care.
Fluent in both English and French languages, Dr. Jennifer Yakimishyn is an active member of the International Paediatric Chiropractic Association (ICPA), the International Federation of Chiropractors & Organizations (IFCO), and the Chiropractic Awareness Council of Ontario (CAC). She is a Skate Canada Professional Coach, and enjoys healthy cooking, hiking with her dog Turner, yoga, skiing and running. Dr. Jennifer takes pride in her additional certifications and loves promoting healthy growth and development of the human body.
