While studying Kinesiology at McMaster University Dr. Gillies’s interest in the human body developed. From the beginning, the study of muscles, joints and motion captivated her. She was accepted into the Doctor of Chiropractic program and graduated as a chiropractor in 1998. Dr. Gillies started Village Chiropractic in 1999. She is very proud that the clinic has grown to three full-time chiropractors and is a great member of the community. Dr Gillies loves her work. She thrives from helping patients reduce pain, regain motion and strength as well as giving people the tools to maintain a good quality of life.
Dr. Gillies is a member of the Ontario and Canadian Chiropractic Associations. She is primarily a hands-on chiropractor, using adjustments, soft tissue therapy and rehabilitation exercises. She has completed certification in Rehabilitation, Activator, SFMA and Active Release Technique.
Dr. Gillies is married and a proud mother of two. You can regularly find her with her family on the trails, either hiking, running, biking or skiing.
