Owner, Naturopathic Doctor, German New Medicine Practitioner
Dr. Katherine Willow 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 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 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).
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!

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.

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.”
