Dr Janelle Van Kalken is a Chiropractor and founder of Vitality Place. With a passionate interest in women’s health and a combined 20 years’ experience, Janelle started her career as a registered nurse and midwife. After more than a decade of midwifery experience, sharing in the lives of women and their families, acknowledging the privilege of working with women during their pregnancy and child birth journey. Janelle was inspired to return to university to become a chiropractor so that she could combine her midwifery knowledge and experience with her chiropractic skills and continue working with women and their families during this phenomenal stage of their life; pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Janelle is inspired not only by getting to the cause of pain and dysfunction through inquiry and the discovery of how your own set of lifestyle factors influence your health as a unique individual, but also helping clients to be active participants in their own health.
“Witnessing the realization of a client’s optimal body functioning, and the potentiality this brings to their life is truly rewarding.”
Constantly moving towards her own personal health goals and aspirations, Janelle enjoys the outdoors, walking her two dogs and cooking up a storm with local fresh produce in the kitchen at home.
