Dr. Tanya Kelloway

Dr. Tanya Kelloway

DTCM, Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine
Meet Dr. Tanya Kelloway. Born in Calgary, Alberta and destined to follow her lifelong passion for acupuncture and herbal medicine, as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine. She studied in the city of Mianyang in Sichuan province of China. Dr. Tanya finished her Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine internship at the Mianyang Hospital of TCM and has been in practice for 8 years now. Dr. Tanya and her partner Max Morin opened Urban Roots Wellness Centre (URWell) together 1 year ago and love the feeling of family, that it has created with her Calgary patients. She enjoys helping her patients through health care conditions such as pain, digestive issues, hormone balancing, pre and post operative care, cancer care and support, and so much more. Dr. Tanya
Maria’s interest in natural medicine was sparked at a young age through the experience of seeing her mother suffering from chronic illness and the serious side effects of prescription drugs. She felt intuitively that there had to be a more natural approach to healing that would treat the whole person and not just their disease. It was while living in Japan that she learned about the therapeutic value of acupuncture. After developing environmental allergies and asthma and being presented with the option of using an inhaler, she decided to try acupuncture. She found the results so powerful not only with respect to allergies, but also in terms of overall wellness, that it altered her life’s path. Her education in Canada was followed with an internship at MianYang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine in MianYang, China. Although Maria treats a wide range of health concerns, some of her special interests include treating headaches, sleep and stress , digestive health, depression, anxiety and women’s health Dr. Maria Wristen

Natural forces within us are the true healers of the body

Natural forces within us are the true healers of the body

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) understands the human body with meridians, connections between organs, muscles, nerves, and other systems. TCM is based on knowledge gained and practices refined over thousands of years in China.

We are intrigued by how patients respond quickly and effectively to treatments of Acupuncture, and Chinese herbs. We have successfully treated patients with health problems throughout the whole body: cancer care and support, anxiety, shingles, stress, bells palsy, phantom pain syndrome, digestive problems (IBS), musculoskeletal pain, migraines, sinus infections and more.

With means of Acupuncture, Cupping and Herbal Medicine, we provide the body with adequate tools for it to begin to heal internally

Massage Therapy

Hello, my name is Mandi Mack. I teach busy women and men how to feel less stressed, more relaxed and empowered, through a fun combination of massage, yogic concepts and meditation. I believe that in each of us there is a healer, and all we need is a little encouragement to explore. I’ve burnt out, trying to be and do too much; I was pulled in a million directions, spreading myself too thin. Through a tonne of trial and error and searching, I’ve come to realize many truths. I want to share what I’ve learned and help others thrive by inspiring their curiosity and providing tools to support their adventure inward. My designations are Ayurvedic Marma-Therapist (marma are gateways for the mind, body and spirit) trained in Tongue and Pulse diagnosis, Thai Therapist and Massage Practitioner including Cupping and Scraping, Table Thai, Pregnancy, Plant Spirit Medicine, Yoga Instructor (200hrs) and Yoga Therapist (IYTA), Sports Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Quantum Touch, and I’m sure there are a few more I’m forgetting.

How can it help get rid of pain?

Structural pain is simple: The causalities are due to imbalances and improper alignment of bones, and weakness of muscles and tendons. Through the FMT lens, it is imperative to restructure the tension system of the body by means of therapeutic exercise and conscious movement protocols in order to create proper alignment within the body’s joint systems.

As we go about our daily lives, we begin to develop habits. These habits manifest themselves physically in each moment as we carry our bodies from one position to the other. Whether we’re chronic slouchers or hip walkers, these ingrained habits start to become unconscious. By becoming aware of the “proper” way to carry ourselves through our daily movements, we can correct these unconscious postures and relieve pain at its core.

The heart and soul of FMT is to address the clients’ walking, sitting, standing, sleeping, bending, stairs and running habits. As we address these issues, we inevitably create structural alignment within the body. This in turn causes pain relief from a root cause perspective.
