Registered Massage Therapist, Labour Support Doula and Owner
Hey, I’m Lindsay (she/her) – a self-proclaimed Birth Nerd and cat meme enthusiast. I'm on a mission to help people have less painful pregnancies, better birth experiences and faster postpartum recoveries. I opened Guelph Prenatal Massage in hopes of creating a meeting place for pregnant people and their babies to get personalized care with their needs and desires at the forefront.
I never say no to coffee, love Halloween and when I'm not on call for babies - I can be found backcountry camping with my partner, Dave.
Registered Massage Therapist and Lactation Consultant (IBCLC)
Hi, I’m Victoria! If you're a fan of the Food Network or remember TLC's A Baby Story, I'm sure we'll get along just fine. I am a Registered Massage Therapist and Lactation Consultant. Most of my time is spent chasing my crawling son away from the dog bowl so massage is just as relaxing for me as it is for you!
I can’t wait to meet you and promise to only bring up Blues Clues once or twice.
Registered Massage Therapist
Hey, I'm Julianne, but you can call me Jules. I am an avowed music buff and plant lover with a naturally inquisitive spirit. As a Registered Massage Therapist, my aim is to support you mind and body while we strive to achieve your goals of treatment together, whatever they may be.
I am excited to meet you, and I'm sure we'll have a playlist or two in common!
Registered Acupuncturist, Registered Massage Therapist
Hi, I’m MaryBeth, or MB for short. I’m pleased to be offering acupuncture to help you enjoy (or endure?) your pregnancy and have a positive birth experience.
Did you know that people fall asleep all the time during their acu sessions? My favourite compliment is the sound of someone snoring on my table.
Manual Osteopathic Practitioner
Hi, I’m Laura (she/her)! I love all things homemade and can usually be found trying new recipes or reading a good book.
As an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, I’m always seeking to learn more about how our bodies are designed and how to help them function at their best. I’m passionate about caring for families through infancy, pregnancy, and beyond, as these transitions are a great time to create strong foundations for a healthy life!

Janine Buisman Wilcox
Janine Buisman Wilcox is a Naturopathic Doctor whose goal is to provide patients with insight, accountability and strategy so they can take charge of their health.
She supports a range of ages, but particularly focuses on women’s health and hormones, and supporting new families and children with the foundations for lifelong health.

She acts as investigator, advocate, and guide through the healthcare system. Dr. Janine is constantly learning and researching to ensure that she is aware of the latest research and best practices in the field; she also works hard to understand her patients' individual needs, goals, and motivation in order to find strategies that will work for their life.
Dr. Janine, ND is a Guelph local and Mom of three kids. She gets that life is busy, information is everywhere, and time is limited - she wants to provide you with clarity and support so you can feel your best!
I believe that kids do well if they can. This is important because it encourages us to trust in your child’s innate potential, and to look beyond their behaviour to address the cause and not just the symptoms.
I know this is not only possible, but essential, because I see it every day. I see it in the research in psychology and neuroscience. I see it in the kids I work with, in my own family, and in myself.
What lights me up is being curious, compassionate, and working with parents to bring out their child’s best self.
Relationships are a critical part of therapy, and OT is no different. I know that the best change happens within the context of a trusting relationship, so I highly value building a connection with you and your child. Parents are actively involved every step of the way; after all, OT may happen for an hour each week, but you are with your child each and every day. Your active involvement is an essential part of our work together.
I will be there to support you on this journey and will always respect that you are the expert on your child.
