Seek­ing to cre­ate ‘heal­ing en­vi­ron­ment’

The Expositor (Brantford) - - NEWS - SU­SAN GAM­BLE

Di­verse health-care prac­ti­tion­ers have banded to­gether on Char­ing Cross Street.

The busi­nesses – Fam­ily Care Chi­ro­prac­tic, D’Vine Liv­ing, Ther­mog­ra­phy Med­i­cal Clinic and reg­is­tered mas­sage ther­a­pist David Zu­lak — are work­ing to­gether to “cre­ate a heal­ing en­vi­ron­ment,” says chi­ro­prac­tor Sandy Kunej.

Serv­ing Brant­ford for 21 years, Kunej moved to Char­ing Cross in May 2016.

He’s joined at 22-24 Char­ing Cross by Sharon Ed­wards, founder and pres­i­dent of D’Vine Liv­ing and Ther­mog­ra­phy Med­i­cal Clinic, and Zu­lak, who of­fers mas­sage and os­teopa­thy — fo­cus­ing on joints and bones.

Ed­wards, a home­opath, reg­is­tered holis­tic nu­tri­tion­ist and cer­ti­fied clin­i­cal ther­mo­g­ra­pher, said that ex­pand­ing to the Brant­ford mar­ket is a log­i­cal step for her.

Zu­lak, who has been prac­tis­ing since 1994, also runs a clinic in Paris at 10 Ban­field St.

For more in­for­ma­tion, email Ed­wards at sharon@dvine­liv­ing. com, Kunej at fam­i­ly­carechi­ro­prac­tic@rogers.com and Zu­lak at dzu­lak@hot­mail.com.

Artist Thomas Stewart Robert­son has moved his stu­dio and gallery back to Brant­ford.

Robert­son is host­ing grand open­ing re­cep­tions at 399 West St. on Oct. 27, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Oct. 28, 2 p.m to 6 p.m.

Af­ter keep­ing a stu­dio on Queen Street in Brant­ford for years, Robert­son moved to Paris but the space he was rent­ing was sold.

At the open­ing re­cep­tions, there will be live mu­sic per­for­mances and artist meet-and-greets.

Robert­son is ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from artists in­ter­ested in dis­play­ing their work.

Con­tact him for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion at tsrobert­son@gmail.com or 519-754-8926.

The three op­tometrists at Eyes on Mar­ket have joined FYi­doc­tors, the world’s largest doc­tor-owned eye­care com­pany.

Doc­tors Hans Schus­ter, James Bech­told and Will Shi made the move as of Aug. 14.

The clinic at 22 Mar­ket St. is the first lo­ca­tion for FYi­doc­tors in Brant­ford and part of the com­pany’s move to strengthen its po­si­tion in On­tario. It cur­rently has more than 525 op­tometrists work­ing in 200 lo­ca­tions.

The Eyes on Mar­ket clinic has been op­er­at­ing since 1950 in down­town Brant­ford.

Dr. Alan Ul­sifer, chair and CEO of FYi­doc­tors, said he is ex­cited to wel­come Eyes on Mar­ket.

“As a doc­tor-owned com­pany, our pri­mary fo­cus is on pa­tient care,” he said. “And, by part­ner­ing with thought lead­ers like the team from Eyes On Mar­ket, we are able to de­liver a fully per­son­al­ized ex­pe­ri­ence to ev­ery sin­gle pa­tient across Canada.”

A grand open­ing will be held Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m,, for The Best You, an of­fice at 515 Park Rd. N. that pro­vides med­i­cal skin and laser ther­apy, along with anti-ag­ing tech­niques.

The of­fice is home to Dr. Deniz Akyurekli, cos­metic sur­geon and Dr. Swasha Kaushik, cos­metic physi­cian, who are part­ner­ing with Dr. Nestor Tor­res, an anti-ag­ing spe­cial­ist.

The Best You was founded by Akyurekli, who be­gan with a staff of four in Owen Sound. Over the years, the busi­ness has ex­panded to six fa­cil­i­ties in five cities.
