About Dr. Sandip

After completing his Bachelor of Science in Cell Biology at the University of British Columbia Dr. Sandip attended the allopathic medical school and noticed the lack of emphasis on disease prevention and health promotion in patient care specifically using nutrition and exercise. While completing his training at Wyckoff Heights Medical Centre in Brooklyn, NY Dr. Sandip was able to make this sustainable lifestyle change in his own life; this was the driving force for him to pursue Naturopathic Medicine.

Dr. Sandip has years of experience in treating complex cases with natural treatments including acupuncture. His treatment philosophy is working with patients to find solutions that work for them and their lifestyles. He is a registered Naturopathic Doctor with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).

Meet Mira

Mira is a shamanic energy medicine practitioner, trained and certified by Alberto Villoldo and the Four Winds Society. She is also a certified Usui and Karuna Reiki Master, Unity Field Healing practitioner and yoga and meditation teacher. Her background is archeology/classical studies and library science. She retired from her day job to dedicate herself to healing arts and to be of service to the community in the new role. She has been interested in natural healing practices for a long time. At first, it was nutrition and preparing healthy meals, then different modalities of healing touch. A personal, then a healing crisis prompted her to explore and dive deeper into the field of energy medicine. In the last twenty years, she has extensively studied the subject with different teachers. Each one contributed greatly to her understanding of natural and quantum laws that are fundamental to energy healing.

Our team of holistic practitioners recognize the powerful and inherent healing ability of the person and support these intelligent natural processes with an individualized treatment plan.
