Owner, Naturopathic Doctor, German New Medicine Educator
Dr. Katherine Willow ND. has been practicing since 1983 as a fourth-generation naturopathic doctor via her family in Europe. Her specialty is the integration of German New Medicine (GNM) into her practice. In this new paradigm, one can connect biological shocks with conditions and determine whether a person’s symptoms are in the stress or healing phase of the shock.
Another favourite of Dr. Willow’s is old-style naturopathic medicine, which approaches disease with the simplicity of nature cure therapies: sun, air, water, earth and plants. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing complicated cases resolve as a person’s body and mind receive what they need to heal.
Dr. Willow ND. enjoys helping people with:
• Aging well and prevention of disease
• Children’s conditions, especially ADHD
• Inflammatory conditions
• Lyme disease
• Weight loss or gain and detoxification
• Women’s health
Dr. Willow ND. graduated from National College (now University) of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon, in 1983 and is registered with the Canadian College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).
Hi, I am Jada and I am all about the full-picture when it comes to health.
When I work with you, I take the time to listen to your history, your issues and ask the right questions to uncover what your body is needing and what might be at a root cause of your symptoms. Together, we will execute a plan to stimulate your body’s natural healing force, and we honour all of the layers of your health – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual (wounded or healthy beliefs). Everything is linked, mind and body, and we will address your health concerns from every angle.
I enjoy combining the science of lab testing, understanding biological reasons for your symptoms with the more, nuanced aspects of ‘disease’ or unbalance; the energetics of what your body may be holding. We merge these two seemingly opposite approaches to healing and we discover a new way of healing. This combined approach allows you to understand your body, trigger deep healing and this allows you to move forward instead of staying stuck in a pattern that needs consistent care and attention.
The tools that I typically employ with clients are a combination of some of the following: nutrition, botanical medicine, mind-body medicine or energy healing, acupuncture (if you are local and it’s appropriate to your case), lifestyle medicine, homeopathic medicines and nutritional supplementation. Any recommendations I make in regards to botanicals (herbs), nutritional supplements or homeopathic medicines can be purchased at a local store, online or at the clinic.
You are always in the driver’s seat of your health journey and each phase of your treatment plan is negotiable. We will work together to find a path forward that is at the right pace for you.
Conditions commonly treated:
Digestive concerns: IBS, bloating, SIBO, constipation, gas, reflux, gastritis, undiagnosed issues.
Infertility: Unexplained infertility, advanced age, low ovarian reserve, male infertility, PCOS, irregular cycles.
Menstruation: PCOS, endometriosis, irregular periods, coming off BCP, cramps, PMS, PMDD.
Hormonal Imbalances: Perimenopause, menopause, hypothyroid/hyperthyroid, insulin resistance.
Mental Health: Burnout, anxiety, depression, insomnia, adrenal fatigue, ADHD.
Immune System concerns: Autoimmune disease, chronic inflammation, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis.
Skin issues: eczema, acne, psoriasis, fungal infections.
Metabolic issues: high cholesterol, weight gain, pre-diabetes.
Generalized issues: fatigue, headaches/migraines, brain-fog, feeling ‘unwell’, pain.

Registered Massage Therapist, Somatic Movement Educator, Sound & Energy Healing Practitioner.
Sometimes our body sends us messages – tight shoulders, clenched jaw, worried thinking, unhappy feet, restless sleep, anxious breathing, numbness, and so on. Often, these discomforts are compensation patterns. We’ve all been through various injuries, traumas, stressors, fixations, challenges, etc.. Compensation patterns are one way our body ‘gets through stuff’. They are likely necessary at the time they develop – but soon become habit, long after they’re needed, and then eventually what served us, becomes a limitation.
Kris is skilled at noticing and tracking these patterns in posture, movement, breath, tissue nature, fluid rhythms and perceptual states. Awareness is the key to encouraging change, releasing compensation and discovering a more comfortable way.
All sessions are framed in the context of Somatic Awareness; getting curious about the language of the body and noticing what patterns are apparent and desire attention.
Kris has been in full-time private practice and teaching for over 30 years. In that time, she has collectively trained in and taught various healing modalities, body centred therapies and movement methods. She holds master-level certifications in many methods of Bodywork, Yoga, Conscious Dance, Somatic Movement, Energy Healing, Doula Care, Natural Health, Sound Healing, Nature Therapies and Wisdom Traditions. She is a life-long, avid learner with a curious and joyful spirit!

One could say that Bette enjoys taking chances: while most people have one or two careers in life, she’s already had five to date — accounting, sales, applied research, volunteer services manager and owner of a Bowen therapy clinic. In 2006, Bette went on a spiritual quest, which led her to a mountaintop in Thailand with 60 other Canadians and a master for two weeks in 2006. “We were all expecting to find out what we would be doing next,” she remembers. “Nothing came, until two months after I returned. I was watching Dr. Marla Shapiro on television and she had a Bowen therapist on as her guest, and I thought, ‘this is what I want to do’.”
Bette opened Bowen Therapy Clinic in Ottawa in 2007 and operated for years, before moving to B.C. Bette is now back in the Ottawa area and is practicing here at Carp Ridge EcoWellness. She has her Advance Certification in Bowen Therapy. Bowen work involves stimulating receptors in the tendons, muscles and ligaments of the body. She helps patients of all ages suffering from chronic back pain, shoulder pain, sciatica and more. She especially enjoys working with young autistic children. “I find it beneficial,” she says. “I originally started working with children and I could see that they benefitted greatly in relaxing.”
Spiritual Health and Wellness Healer, Teacher and Guide
Jean’s healing journey began in 2003 after being diagnosed with a brain and spinal cord tumor shortly after completing allopathic treatment for Breast Cancer. Her daily survival kit included a multitude of anti-depressants, pain killers, anti-anxiety pills, sleeping pills, medications to offset the recurrence of breast cancer, etc. Deeply committed to her own evolution, personal healing, and truth Jean began studying and applying many different alternative healing modalities in order to heal her body/mind/spirit. She also let go of all prescription medication. Thus began a fascinating journey where self-mastery, autonomy, rejuvenation, regeneration, and higher consciousness all become possible. Jean’s extensive tool kit includes and is not limited to Reiki Master, Shamanism, Universalis Modality, Neuro Linguistic Programming, WEL-SystemsTM Master Facilitator, Ottawa’s first Accredited Journey Practitioner, Cranial Sacral Therapy, etc.
Jean works online or in person in Kanata.
