Jacqueline DeMerchant AKA "Jacks"

Jacqueline is definitely our "Jackie of all Trades".   From an early age, she has been interested in healing. She began her studies in Psychology during high school and progressed further in college.  She has helped people with talk counselling and branched into the physical world of healing in 2009. She has worked in the field of physical therapy for 14 years now and has worked the administrative side as well as an aid to the therapist on the gym floor.  She believes in holistic healing, meaning  she treats all issues by incorporating the  mind, emotions, as well as the body.  If one is experiencing mental or emotional hardships, it can reflect so in our bodies.  She does her best to create a positive and encouraging environment as the patient works to achieve their goals.  

Jacqueline has also always been a very physical and active person. She hasn't always done things properly and has learned the hard way on proper body mechanics from unloading trucks to sitting at a desk for hours at a time. She has made the mistakes herself and wants to share her wisdom so you don't have to learn the hard way.  No matter your injury or ailment she always lets the patient know that we are in this together.  Together we can achieve consistency and healing.
