About Dr Yu

I graduated from The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1998 and have been serving the communities of St. Thomas and area since.

Prior to that, my undergraduate studies were in the areas of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Toronto.

An interest in Nutrition was ignited when I was accepted into the Mentorship Program at the University of Toronto and subsequently did 2 years of research in the field of Nutritional Sciences with Dr. David Jenkins, Dr. Vladimir Vuksan and Dr. A.Venket Rao at The Risk Factor Modification Center, St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto.

Under the guidance of Dr. Sheila Jacobson at The Hospital of Sick Children, I completed a research project in the area of Pediatric Pharmacology.

In my first year of practice, I published a paper on Gender Issues in Distance Education while pursuing a Masters in Distance Education.

During my studies at CMCC, I learned the art and skill of Acupuncture with Dr. Patrick Anthony, studied Nutritional Detoxification with Dr. Ken Peever and became certified in CranioSacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation through the Upledger Institute.

I credit my Chiropractor, Dr Barry Shapiro for first offering me a job at his clinic in Rosedale, inspiring me to become a Chiropractor and for being such a powerful mentor through the years.

My education in the areas of Acupuncture, Acupressure, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, Nutritional Detoxification, Acute Homeopathy and Reiki is a testament to my continued commitment to learn about as well as provide a wide range of services for people interested in acute care, maintenance care, sports injuries and prevention.

I believe that leading by example is one of the best ways to influence. Mechanical balance, proper nutrition, consistent exercise, adequate rest, effective stress neutralizers are key components of my family’s healthy system.

The above philosophy is reflected in my holistic treatment programs.
