Ryan Hamman (RMT)
Registered Massage Therapist
“I graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in 2008. I have been practicing as a Registered Massage Therapist since 2009. So far in the course of my career I have come across and treated a variety of different conditions including, but not limited to: Whiplash, Tension Headaches, Morton’s Neuroma, Prenatal, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel, Sciatica, Edema, Lumbago, Migraines. I believe that taking time to properly communicate the patients needs as well as building a trusting relationship with them is important to be able to create an effective treatment plan and help the patient recover quicker. I also advocate that pre and post assessments and prescribing proper home care are essential in achieving the desired outcome or goal for patients. Some of the techniques I prefer to use in my practice are: Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Craniosacral Therapy, Manual Lymph Drainage, Trigger Point Release, Muscle Energy Technique, Passive Stretching. Playing soccer, cycling, meditation, and music are all parts of my recreational life.“
Candie has been a massage therapist for 5 years. She combines both Eastern and Western techniques with stretching, acupressure points and moving energy through meridians. She uses a variety of techniques, including deep tissue massage to relax tense muscles while invigorating your body’s blood flow. She is working towards her RMT designation and is also a master in Usui Reiki. With her experience to date, Candie has developed her signature style of therapeutic treatment using some reiki techniques and chakra balancing to promote further healing. Candie loves the challenge of working with those experiencing chronic pain, specifically in the neck and shoulders, hips and also those who suffer from headaches and sciatica. Her philosophy for all her work is based on removing obstacles that block our abilities to see, hear, feel and connect more intimately with our own mind, body and spirit.
Dr. Ibby Omole
Registered Naturopathic Doctor
Hello. I’m Dr. Ibby Omole. I’m a licensed naturopathic physician and registered acupuncturist.
I help motivated women find lasting solutions to their digestive, hormonal and chronic health issues so that they can have balanced hormones, better energy and improved vitality in their lives.
I am here to tell you that with the proper guidance and lifestyle choices, you can transform your life from the inside out. For over a decade I have been helping motivated women radically change their health and lives for the better.
For a vast majority of women, their health issues are a combination of lifestyle choices and genetic predispositions. However, while you cannot change your genetics, you can make informed lifestyle choices so that you can have more energy, clarity, calm and confidence in your life. Health is more than just the absence of disease, it is the ability to live one’s life to the fullest without hesitancy, restrictions or limitations.
I believe when our body, mind, spirit and social relationships are flourishing, we are healthier and happier. Natural health is not a trend for me, it is my life’s work and a combination of choices I make each and every day to take care of my body and myself because I deserve it. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and expertise with you so that you too can transform your health.
I look forward to helping you transform your health from the inside out.

Dr. Parm Bisla
Chiropractor at Pain Free Health
Dr. Bisla is a graduate of the University of Western States Chiropractic School and also has a Kinesiology degree from Simon Fraser University. He gained a passion for this profession after seeing his chiropractor for many sports injuries. He was tired of taking medication and not seeing any improvements. He believes that educating his patients is very important so they have a better understanding of what we are trying to accomplish.
From coaching to playing, he has been involved in sports his whole life. He also enjoys reading literature on exercise, nutrition, and new medical advances. If there is not an answer he knows, he will be more than happy to find it!
In order to get maximal gains from Chiropractic treatment, Dr. Bisla believes it is very important to get a comprehensive history from his patients. He works toward creating a relationship with his patients that is not focused merely on their current pain, but rather one that leads his patients on the path to a healthier lifestyle. He finds his role as a chiropractor very fulfilling and takes pride in helping his patients become pain-free. Dr. Bisla would love for you to visit him so he can establish a specific treatment plan for you!

Junior 'A' Hockey Team
The Surrey Eagles are a Junior ‘A’ Ice Hockey team based in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. They are members of the Mainland Conference of the British Columbia Hockey League. They play their home games at South Surrey Arena.
The Surrey Eagles athletes and coaches enjoy the benefits of floatation therapy as it aids in recovery of sports-related injuries and accelerates the healing process. Floating takes the pressure of gravity off the joints and muscles so your body can enjoy a high state of physical relaxation.
They also utilize the Float Therapy sessions by using visualization as a way to train their mind for an upcoming game or to work through techniques they may be learning. The float tank is an optimal place to do this as it removes all external distractions. It provides an environment where true mental clarity can occur and an athlete can focus their full attention to their goals or an upcoming game.
The Salt Therapy ensures their immune systems are given an extra boost, keeping colds, flu and allergies at bay so they are on their Game.
Salt Wellness Centre is proud to be a sponsor for our local Junior A Hockey team.
