Dr. Jilla Schwarz was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta and moved to Ontario in 1995 to study Kinesiology at the University of Western Ontario in London. It was during this time that Dr. Jilla was initially introduced to the profound benefits of chiropractic through her interest in triathlons as part of the Alberta triathlon team. In 1998 she was accepted to study chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, and received her Doctor of Chiropractic in May of 2002.
In Dr. Jilla’s Curriculum Vitae, she has attained a fellowship with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (recognized in the USA), which encompasses advanced knowledge in pregnancy and children as it relates to a chiropractor. Dr. Jilla has a special interest in the unique needs of pregnant women and children and focuses on family preventative and wellness care.

Tracy Spalding, RMT – Registered Massage Therapist
Tracy Spalding was born in Toronto and raised in Barrie, Ontario. From a young age Tracy was very active and athletic and her love of sport, flag football, soccer, track and field, and volleyball in particular, continued all throughout high school. It was this passion that steered her towards pursuing a career in the healthcare field. Healthcare, being a comprehensive industry prompted Tracy to explore her options within the profession in order to narrow down where her talents, skills, and love of sport would fit best. After having volunteered in a clinic well known for its diverse and broad spectrum of healthcare, she was able to get a more thorough understanding of the professions in which she had shown interest: physiotherapy, kinesiology, athletic therapy, and massage therapy. With the experience and knowledge that she gained at the clinic she was able to start college with a certainty that Massage Therapy was the right field in which to specialize.
An honours graduate from Georgian College, class of 2007, Tracy has been practicing as a successful Registered Massage Therapist ever since. Through it all she has never lost her interest in healthcare, as she is a strong advocate for healthy living, an endeavour she herself nurtures with her love of playing tennis, hiking, bike riding, regular workouts and yoga to balance her strength and flexibility, respectively.
