Attention Naturopathic Patients at LiveWell Health & Wellness:
It is with mixed emotions that we announce the departure of our Naturopath -Dr. Lesley Johnston- effective February 2017. As we are sad to see her leave, we are also proud of all her accomplishments and excited to see her expand her practice.
It is never easy to lose a dedicated and hardworking employee. Dr. Lesley contributed a lot to the success of LiveWell Health and Wellness. We acknowledge her efforts and thank her for the unconditional commitment and dedication throughout the years here in Baden.
On behalf of everyone at LiveWell, we would like to wish Dr. Lesley the best of success in future challenges and endeavors! Congratulations on your practice in Kincardine – we will miss you!
We assure you that we are using all our resources in a full effort to look for a new Naturopath that will compliment the therapies and skill of Dr. Lesley and represent LiveWell and the Baden community.
Any questions or concerns may be addressed to clinic director Greg Heikoop or our administrative staff.
Dr. Nicole Brunsek graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Biology. Following this, she attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto where she earned her Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) graduating with Clinical Honours.
Dr. Brunsek's clinical focus is on female care using treatment techniques such as soft tissue therapy, joint mobilizations, Diversified spinal manipulative therapy and exercise.
Growing up in a small town similar to Baden, Dr. Brunsek is looking forward to serving the Wilmot community.
Osteopathy: Now Offered* at LiveWell!
*Coming this March
Our Massage Therapist Tammy Tourout will now also be offering Osteopathy treatments here at LiveWell on Wednesdays from 2-7pm! Call the clinic or go online to book your initial assessment!
Osteopathy treatments are for anyone and everyone!
Osteopathy treats any type of musculoskeletal pain (whether muscle, bone, joint, nerve, etc.) and is also good for general maintenance of the body. A treatment involves some soft tissue massage work, joint mobilizations to increase movement in stiff joints and muscle energy techniques to stretch tight muscles. Other techniques such as active release, cranial sacral therapy, and visceral manipulation can be added to the treatment when appropriate. All techniques are relaxing and not painful, therefore treatment is enjoyable. Osteopathy works on the principle of treating the body as a whole so several areas are worked on which further increases positive results.

Note from Dr. Brittany
It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my leaving LiveWell Health and Wellness, effective January 2017. As most of you know I have welcomed a baby girl into my life and have decided to relocate closer to family. It has been a great pleasure providing for your health care needs over the past year, and it has not been an easy decision for me to give it up.
Your chiropractic records are confidential and will remain on file at LiveWell. As of now Dr. Michael White has been able to continue with your care. Dr. Nicole Brunsek will be joining the team come February. Her profile will be added to the website shortly, so keep an eye out and help us welcome her!
I have greatly valued our relationship, and thank you for your loyalty and trust in me over the course of your care. I will miss you all dearly.
Should you wish to contact me with any questions or concerns you may do so by addressing them with Greg Heikoop or Dr. Michael White and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Best wishes for your future health.
Dr. Brittany Labatte, DC
