Meet the team of chiropractic doctors and professionals at our clinic.
Meet the Doctors
Dr. Tim Hughes
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Tim Hughes was born and raised in St. Catharines, Ontario, and lives there with his wife, Deborah, and their three sons. He was fortunate enough that his parents brought him to be examined by the family chiropractor for his chronic and painful childhood ear infections at the age of four. Chiropractic worked, and just before the planned surgical intervention of tubes in his eardrums. Dr. Tim has practiced in the US, Toronto, and since 2005, back home in St. Catharines. He has had the pleasure of treating hall-of-famer professional athletes, senior citizen octogenarians, children, and everyone in between. Elite athletes and couch potatoes all need to care for their spines and nervous systems in order to maintain their health, and improve their health, longevity and daily quality of life. Dr. Tim is proud to use his twenty-three years of chiropractic experience to help you achieve better health. He is a passionate healthcare advocate who believes there is value to many disciplines. His clinic is proud to offer massage therapy, acupuncture, reiki, yoga, meditation, stretching and exercise instruction -- all under one roof.
Our staff members work with our doctors every day to provide our patients with a professional and friendly experience.

Her energizing classes are great for muscle toning, weight loss, and just generally feeling awesome.
