Seeking to create ‘healing environment’
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.

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.

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.
