Dr. Suhani Shah, ND
Naturopathic Doctor (N.D.)
Dr. Suhani’s journey with natural medicine began at a young age of 12 when she used complementary medicine adjunctively with conventional medicine to help address and treat scoliosis. Through her personal health journey, she developed a desire to work in healthcare and ended up completing her undergraduate studies in Applied Human Nutrition through the University of Guelph in Ontario. Having developed a strong passion for nutrition and biomedical sciences but felt there should be more treatment options rather than just drugs and surgery, she discovered naturopathic medicine and found an instant connection with the field.
Having graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Dr. Suhani is a regulated and licensed naturopathic doctor with the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta (CNDA) and a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND).
Dr. Suhani is eager to help moms, dads, children, and teens/adolescents in the areas of:
Digestive issues including diarrhea/constipation
Hormonal imbalances including stress management
ADHD and other behavioural disorders
Pregnancy and post-partum care
Prolotherapy to help with joint and muscle pain (strengthens the cartilage, ligaments, connective tissue)
IV nutrient therapy for energy and immune support
B vitamin injections for energy
Hormonal, food sensitivity, and digestive testing
Nadine has felt drawn to work in the field of Psychology since she was young. Something about helping people while understanding the mind and healing the soul felt beautiful to her.
After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Calgary she spent some time working at a youth group home leading group work, individual and family therapy sessions, under the guidance of a Registered Psychologist. While Nadine loved the work, she moved on to supporting families and parents in a role with Child and Family Services. This role fostered her love of working with families further and her desire to help those that needed the support.
She completed her Master of Counselling degree from Athabasca University and worked with adult individuals on a walk-in basis at Eastside Family Centre in Calgary.
Since completing her master’s degree Nadine has worked with adult individuals both privately and at a non-profit agency. She has found her passion working with and supporting women especially as they transition into motherhood, in what ever way that journey may look. After becoming a mother herself, she fells that there was a gap in the system and in what was offered by mental health professionals. It also seemed that there was no where to turn when the transition into motherhood was not all sunshine and rainbows.
Nadine began in private practice so that women could have a safe space to talk about all their emotions and feelings, good or bad, and to feel supported rather than judged. She works collaboratively with her clients to navigate the journey of womanhood and motherhood in a way that is unique to them.

Michele Greco, BCST
Registered Massage Therapist, Craniosacral Therapist
I began my career as a Registered Massage Therapist with WCCMT over 30 years ago and found an interest in the subtle modalities of Craniosacral Therapy and Myofascial Release around this time, studying under Upledger Institute, as well as John F. Barnes.
After many years working in these modalities I went back to school and became a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist in 2007 which supports and connects to the body’s ordering principle also know as the breath of life. This work is beautiful, gentle, and at times profound.
As the years unfolded I continued to learn and grow, studying Ayurveda through the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico under the guidance of Dr. Vasant Lad. I completed my practicum in Pune India in 2005 and utilize this in all aspects of my life and practice through the lens of each individuals unique blueprint. Ayurveda literally translates to mean the ‘Science of Life’ with the
knowledge that what is in nature is also within us. As an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner I look at all aspects of diet and lifestyle to create balance within the body.
In my practice I also utilize various tuning forks and sound instruments to assist in bringing coherence to the system through the healing frequency of sound. This is exciting work for me and I am continually in awe of the profound shifts that can occur with this work alone, or in combination with other modalities.
I have a passion for working with individuals and supporting them on the path of healing and wellness. I am honored to do what I love, and I look forward to being a part of your unique and special journey.
