Originally from Alberta, Dr. Galasso graduated from the University of Calgary with her undergraduate degree and then furthered her education by attending the University of Saskatchewan to focus her research interests in toxicology, specifically in understanding the many ways in which biological, chemical, and physical hazards can impact one’s health. It was during this time that her research helped her to discover the benefits of complimentary medicine as a means of managing disease and illness. Encouraged by this potential, Dr. Galasso headed to Toronto to study at the world-renowned Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, graduating in 2011. Over the years, Dr. Galasso has worked with a diverse patient population, helping them throughout all stages of their lives including pregnancy, infancy, adolescence and adulthood.
Dr. Galasso has taken advanced training in pregnancy to be able to treat the unique aches and pains that accompany pregnancy to ensure your treatments are safe and effective, helping you to have a healthy and comfortable pregnancy. With a special interest in treating children, Dr. Galasso continues to advance her skill set and knowledge to be able to offer the safest and most effective care for your little ones.
In addition to being a Chiropractor, Dr. Galasso is a DONA trained birth doula and has studied midwifery at Ryerson University. In these roles Dr. Galasso has had the privilege of supporting over one hundred clients and their families during pregnancy and labour. Dr. Galasso draws on her experience and education to offer insightful and practical preparation for both the emotional and physiological experience of pregnancy and labour.
Dr. Galasso’s approach to care focuses on working directly with patients to resolve the underlying cause of their condition(s), not simply their symptoms. As such, her chiropractic repertoire includes a diverse array of options, including instrument-assisted soft-tissue therapy (Graston®), therapeutic taping (Kinesotaping®), rehabilitation exercises and recommendations, prescription orthotics, manual and instrument-assisted adjustments, and, most importantly, patient education. Dr.Galasso believes in a multi-faceted team approach to achieve the optimum health for the entire family and will work alongside you and your team of healthcare practitioners to help you achieve your health goals.
Having worked in Saskatchewan for a number of years, Dr. Galasso is excited to be returning to her home province and to be joining the team of Linford Chiropractic Clinic in June, 2017
