Meet the Team

Marie Brown, Office Manager & Chiropractic Assistant

Marie’s first experience with Chiropractic was in the clinics of Palmer College. She had been bucked off a horse at age 11 and was in a car accident at age 17. Her past trauma was catching up with her and presenting in the form of migraines. In the clinics she found some relief through traditional chiropractic care, but it wasn’t until she received her first NUCCA treatment that she recognized that there was something special about this technique.

After receiving regular NUCCA adjustments Marie’s migraines eventually went away! It was her own little miracle to not be so debilitated by these migraines and to finally have a better quality of life. What a blessing it is to receive regular NUCCA adjustments from her loving husband to help her maintain a healthy lifestyle!

Fun facts: I am Dr. Ryan Brown’s wife of 20 plus years and Mother to our 4 children, 2 teenage boys and 2 tween girls. I have been a volunteer at the Shawnessy YMCA since 2014 and love working with and meeting such wonderful people!! I also support an Alberta operated charity called Gems for Gems. I love babies and often get called the baby whisperer. In my teenage years I lived in China for 6 months!

  • Favorite Exercises: Mountain biking, HIIT class at the YMCA, strength training and hiking.
  • Top Health Tip: Use essential oils to balance emotions, boost energy, stabilize blood sugar levels, aid in digestion, clean your home, purify the air and many more natural health solutions!!!
  • Why I love Precision Spinal Care: I love seeing families get healthy together! I love the amazing team we have and I love seeing the Precision Spinal Care family grow!! Our office is an extension of our family!
  • How long have you been working with the Precision Spinal Care team? I have had a huge role behind the scenes from the start in 2007, but I started working full time in June of 2019 and love it, especially our new location in Silverado. I love working in the community that we are raising our children in!

Taylor Stacey, Chiropractic Assistant

Taylor was pretty unsure and a little bit scared of chiropractic when her Fiancé Adam first suggested that they go see Dr. Ryan. She kept an open mind and went anyway. Upon arriving to the office she was very surprised to learn that there would be no “popping or cracking” and that made the process a lot more interesting to her! Dr. Ryan explained what NUCCA chiropractic was and she was sold! After Taylor’s first adjustment she started feeling things change right away and felt a million times better after every visit! She also loved being able to see how her alignment changed on the x-rays.

When the opportunity to work at Precision Spinal Care came up Taylor knew she wanted to rise to the challege! This would give her a chance to not only see other peoples health improve, but she would also be able to learn more about NUCCA chiropractic and share this knowledge with her family and friends!

  • Fun Facts: I grew up in London, Ontario and moved to Calgary in 2015. I love cooking and graduated from culinary management in 2013 at Lambton College.
  • Favorite Exercise: I love riding my mountain bike! I also recently have taken up yoga, which I’m loving!
  • Top Health Tip: Try to do something active every day and try new things to find something you love!
  • Why I love Precision Spinal Care: I love Precision Spinal Care because we’re here to help people! I love seeing clients health improve and I love working with the amazing people that make that happen!
  • How long have you been working with the Precision Spinal Care team? I’ve been working in Silverado with our team for over 6 months!

Jennifer Mason, Registered Massage Therapist & Osteopathic Student

When you ask me about my work, my face lights up and I can geek out for hours—talking about the body systems that keep us healthy. Take the lymphatic system: it clears away germs. And cranial therapy: I was over the moon when I learned I could touch your brain. Then there’s osteopathy, the grand master of them all. Don’t get me started.

Drawn to a career in restorative touch, I didn’t think it was possible to be more passionate about the body. Yet, every day, in my practice and through continuing education, I learn more. Essentially:

I was born to troubleshoot the body’s systems, sourcing chronic pain then freeing people of it, by using osteopathy and related modalities.

Some bios list the professional’s body of work. My body of work is yours. My life energy is totally focussed on you and the network inside you.

Each one of us has a system of rivers within us that flow signals to make the story of wellness. No part of the body should be considered in isolation; everything is connected. That’s the principle behind osteopathy: the body as a unified and inseparable whole.

When we experience pain from an accident or any other cause, the signals within the system that keeps the body healthy can become blocked, corrupted, or damaged. As a consequence of that pain, more of life begins to unravel because we compensate by avoiding, or not doing, certain things. Over the years, the activities we give up and the pain we continue to feel becomes our new normal. We take pills and then live with the side effects. We call it aging, the luck of the draw, and we proclaim that we’ve tried everything.

Accommodation should only be used when referring to hotels and air b&b’s—it has no place in our body. We should never have to accommodate pain. But we do. We become hosts to pain and to whatever ‘baggage’ that pain brings along.

A body in chronic pain is waiting for a reset. The body system is set up for wellness. I can facilitate its healing process.

Communication and feedback are important to me; respect and privacy are essential. You can expect to have a pre- and post-collaboration to ensure the treatment sessions are specific to your needs.

Lesley Gilroy, Registered Massage Therapist

I studied massage therapy at Mount Royal College and have been a Registered Massage Therapist since 2005. Over the last 15 years, I have learned many tools and treatments to improve client’s wellness such as:

  • Therapeutic Massage
  • Hot/Cold Stone Therapy

With my husband, kids, and friends I enjoy playing board games & Dungeons and Dragons. I love spending time doing yoga and meditation. I also play the acoustic guitar. This is a quote that I feel should speak to everyone!

Mindfulness is equal to meditation. Do your tasks mindfully and see the concomitant benefits on your mind, heart and body.

Kim Canjar, Registered Massage Therapist

  • Deep Tissue
  • Myofacial Release
  • Joint Play
  • Therapeutic Massage
  • Cupping
  • Pregnancy Massage
  • Shoulder and Hip Specialist

Your body is meant to move and flow freely. As someone who has had many sport injuries over the past several years, I have dealt with the restrictions these injuries can leave behind. After receiving orthopaedic massages and joint mobilization treatments I fell in love with the results I personally saw. Chronic injuries and over compensations that my body had adapted to were finally seeing massive improvements with these massage techniques! We are not meant to live in pain nor should we have to! Personally seeing these results has driven my passion to help others! Joint mobilization is such an integral portion of my work. But don’t worry, we only work within the limits of what your body allows. With time I hope to help see major mobility changes for all of my clients! When I’m not working, you can normally find me and my dog on the mountain side enjoying the views.

  • Favourite Exercises: Spin Classes, hiking, softball and weight lifting.
  • Top Health Tip: Do one thing a day that pushes you out of your comfort zone physically. And don’t forget to stretch!
