Denise knew she wanted to be a physiotherapist since high school. She has been passionate about her career ever since.

She believes that the patient is best served through collaboration with sports medicine doctors, orthopedic surgeons, family doctors and other allied health providers.

She obtained her combined physical therapy/physical education degrees from the University of Saskatchewan in 1996/1997. Denise worked in Saskatoon and then in Calgary at the Lindsay Park/Talisman Centre where she treated recreational athletes, National athletes and Pro athletes. At Sunshine Physio she continues to treat this array of athletes.

Denise has also worked in the school setting with children with disabilities and paediatrics offering early intervention and treatment. She no longer goes into the school setting, however routinely treats babies for tortocollis (head shape deformities) and paediatric neuromuscular issues.

The majority of her early career was in the sports setting. This included working with local, National and International teams. The highlight of those experiences was traveling as the team physio for the Canadian Men’s Rugby Team to Ireland.

Denise has taken her levels and competency exams in Orthopaedics. She has passed the oral and written component of the Manual and Manipulative therapy (Part A) from the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapy.

Denise has been involved in pursuing a level of excellence for her dear patients. In 1996, she obtained her Advanced Massage Therapy, in 1997 achieved her Personal Fitness and Lifestyle consultant, and in 2010 received her Diploma in Sports Physical Therapy. The diploma in sport medicine is the highest level awarded. This takes years of studying, course work and hands on work. She obtained perfect marks: presently there are a little over 100 physiotherapists across Canada with this level of distinction. She maintains this distinguished designation with continued required course and field work.

Denise suffered from a persistent, nagging pain for a couple of years in her right ovary. She found tremendous relief from Traditional Chinese Medicine, so in 2000 went to the University of Alberta to receive that designation from the renowned Dr. Steven Aung. In 2007 she took further courses in the use of acupuncture needles and obtained GUNN IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation).

After the birth of two large babies (10 pounds each), Denise took a variety of courses in women’s health to treat pelvic floor weakness, incontinence and pain (2004 – 2014). She has taken numerous courses to help females stay active and prevent pelvic floor issues such as incontinence and prolapses. She has expanded that knowledge to help men as well who have issues with prostate cancer and pelvic floor pain (2014).

In 2010 Denise was in a massive head on collision on the highway where she suffered numerous injuries, including fracturing (breaking) her back, foot, numerous torn ligaments, and suffering a serious concussion. She loves treating chronic pain of the spine. She has successfully returned to an active lifestyle through excellent physio, sports medicine and yoga. She loves working with a multidisciplinary team like she had, to provide an appropriate solution to ongoing musculoskeletal problems, which may involve providing referral for prolotherapy evaluation/treatment, or interventional radiology procedures; as well as providing physiotherapy management before, during and after such procedures. As well, she firmly believes in an active home exercise program or coming to her numerous classes that she offers if more guidance is needed or to ensure doing the exercises in a safe manner.

She has developed a personal interest in treatment of concussions and has taken numerous courses in the evaluation and treatment of concussions over her entire career. As research and treatment has changed dramatically over the course of her career, she continues to take courses to stay on the leading edge of what is new to help her dear patients.

She shares her passion for physio, sports medicine, energy medicine and yoga at the clinic and through the numerous classes she offers. The Core Yoga classes are designed to bridge the gap between physio treatments and to return to an active, pain free lifestyle. She has been teaching classes on and off for over 30 years, changing and enhancing them as she develops as a student and teacher. See her yoga bio and class info for more information.

Top 12+ Ways to Use Work from Home Time to Practice Peak Performance

With a number of major companies recently announcing plans to keep employees remote until the middle of next year, at least, many of us are facing continued isolation and experiencing an extended lack of connectedness. For most, it is important to spend time around and engaged with other people, in social groups and at work. By surrounding ourselves with colleagues, family members and associates who challenge us to think and move outside our comfort zone, we find we can improve our habits, learn new things and stay sharp.

Of course, much of life’s biggest joys and most lasting memories stem from our relationships, in large part at work, and in times like these, those can become absent, strained and even strange. And, while some say too much “people time” might also be a bad thing, few of us are feeling that right now. In fact, our digital devices often give us the sense we need to be connected 24/7. All of the noise, activity, constant contact and hustle can wear us out and, iro

Unlocking Complexities of the Microbiome in the War on Viruses – Dr Sabine Hazan Md

“Finding non-toxigenic Clostridium difficile (C.diff) in the gut flora of all 119 subjects tested by genetic sequencing raises the question whether C.diff is an innocent bystander or villain and if antibiotics should be used to kill something that is part of our microbial fingerprint,” says Progenabiome CEO Sabine Hazan, MD, “this breakthrough in research challenges us to look beyond the traditional protocols to treat bacteria and viruses automatically with drugs. It also forces us to understand the balance of the microbiome that allows for immunity to occur.”

Hazan has been a solo practice gastroenterologist and clinical trials investigator for 25+ years. She has participated in over 150 clinical trials for the pharmaceutical and nutrition industries and launched Progenabiome in 2018 to investigate the role of the gut microbiome in various diseases and conditions.

Strategically placed as a genetic sequencing lab, site, CRO, and now sponsor, Progenabiome has 39 ongoing clini

Top 9+ Ways to Engage in Hepatitis Awareness Day (and Four Things You Should Know)

Today is designated as World Hepatitis Awareness Day. Agencies and offices around the globe, within national governments, alongside state, provincial and local partners, all are working to raise awareness of the importance of vaccination for hepatitis B, testing for hepatitis B and C, the availability of effective care and curative treatment, and the serious health consequences resulting from undiagnosed and untreated viral hepatitis.

The day affords all an important opportunity to raise more widespread awareness of viral hepatitis and its impact on the world’s population and expand healthcare’s coordinated efforts to improve the health of the estimated time 290 million people living with viral hepatitis unawares. Without finding the undiagnosed and linking them to care, millions will continue to suffer, and lives will be lost.

Top 10 Ideas for Building Your Best Talent Brand

Everybody understands the importance of company branding, but when you are recruiting for a position, it is essential you pay attention to your ‘Talent Brand’.

We understand that Talent Branding plays a major part in how companies and their future are perceived and shaped in today’s market. Organizations like Glassdoor and others are helping to define the brand of many companies in the market today, but why would you want someone else making these important, even crucial, decisions for you and your company?
What is Talent Branding?

This “new” idea of Talent Branding has been kicked around for years. Some say it’s the overall look and feel of the company (including on-line); others say it’s the internal pulse on whether people like or dislike the organization, and some even say it’s complete nonsense.

As defined by LinkedIn, “Talent branding is the highly social, totally public version of an employer brand that incorporates talent thinks, feels, and shares about yo

Top 6+ Tips for Building Your Best Hiring and Interview Team

Remember that YOU, the hiring manager, are ultimately responsible for all the actions taken when making a hire. This includes the actions of recruiters, support staff and interview helpers.

“Why recruiters,” you ask?
Your Recruiting Team Should Amp the Brand

You have a responsibility to work with your recruiting partners by providing them with the specifics of what you are looking for, the feedback on information submitted and building a partnership to ensure success in finding your next A Player. Take time upfront to develop the ideal candidate summary, then take time to screen resumes together. If you do this at the beginning of a relationship, less will be required in the future to have the results you want.

Choose your recruiting partners carefully. Remember they are an extension of your brand (the company’s and yours personally).

A good recruiter is able to tell a story around a company that is compelling and easy to understand. This is how they are able to attract good

Perpetuating Positive Momentum on the Continuum of Inertia

“When it rains, it pours.” Most are familiar with this phrase. It’s what we use to describe the inertia of negative circumstances building and snowballing.

Can you think of the equivalent phrase used to describe the opposite? The experience of positive inertia?

“Just look at the bright side”… “turn lemons into lemonade”… “there’s a light at the end of the tunnel!” These might come to mind, but each simply builds on turning a negative into a positive.

What about turning a positive into even more positives? Why is there no maxim for positive inertia made more commonplace?

If momentum can swing us one way or the other on the pendulum of professional success, how can we keep the continuum of inertia positioned in a positive direction?

Top 7+ Signs You About to Make a Hiring Mistake | Genomics Recruiter

Hiring a new employee is a time-consuming and expensive process that can make human resource and hiring managers feel pressured to cut corners just to get through it. While the frustration is understandable, simply checking the box is a poor approach. A bad hire ends up costing a company in numerous ways, including lost productivity, lost wages, lost revenue, damage to reputation, and having to go through the hiring process again when that employee quits or gets fired.

Here are a few common signs you are about to make hiring mistakes:
Going with Your Gut

There is a lot of talk about how people should trust their gut and go with their first impression. That might work in other areas of life, but it is rarely a good idea when it comes to hiring an employee. Whether a hiring manager personally likes a job candidate has no bearing on that individual having the right qualifications for the job or fitting into company culture.
