Megan hopes that you leave each session with a solid understanding of what’s currently going on in your body, why it’s happening and what you can do to prevent it in the future.
Outside of the treatment room, Megan enjoys road trips, destination marathon races, strengthening her yoga practice, volunteering with Pacific Rim Hospice and going for beach walks with her golden retriever, Bailey. She strongly believes in the integration of other therapies, such as physiotherapy, acupuncture and chiropractic care for optimal results.
