NATURALLY FOCUSED BRAIN RESILIENCY
My mission is to help active individuals, struggling with persistent post concussion symptoms return to their highest level of play naturally.
It takes about 70Gs to cause a concussion, and 4.5 Gs to cause a whiplash injury. Is your neck being properly assessed?

Dr. Brigitta, ND is a registered Naturopathic Doctor and a Primary Care Paramedic, who has a passion for building brain resiliency, managing post concussion care and optimizing athletic performance.
Brigitta is grateful to bear witness to lives being saved before her eyes and greatly appreciates the continued advances in both Prehospital and Emergency Medicine. However, she quickly saw that this model of protocol-based, symptom relief system of medicine did little to address the individual root cause of dysfunction and disease, especially when it comes to post concussion care.
Brigitta believes that health and wellbeing benefit from both novel and traditional perspectives of medicine It does not have to be one versus the other. It is about empowering you with a holistic view of your brain health and working to create a plan that makes sense for your life.
Brigitta is exceptionally positioned with her training and experience in both Emergency and Naturopathic Medicine to provide patients with unconventional collaborative care.
Brigitta holds a Doctorate Degree in Naturopathic Medicine from CCNM, is a proud member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the Quebec Association of Naturopathic Doctor and is board certified and registered with the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta
CranioSacral therapy (CST) has its roots in osteopathy and was developed by an osteopathic physician, Dr. John Upledger. It is a gentle, non-invasive, hands on therapy which works with the body’s natural rhythm, central nervous system and fascia to release restrictions and facilitate healing. It is remarkable in that it is light pressure yet, affects deep tissues. It is safe to incorporate with almost all other treatment modalities and can enhance other treatments as it increases circulation locally and systemically.
CranioSacral Therapy complements the body’s natural healing process and is effective for pain and dysfunction, including, but not limited to: concussions and post-concussion syndrome, chronic neck and back pain, headaches and migraines, stress and tension-related problems, post-traumatic stress disorder, post-surgical dysfunction.
