Dr. Sasha Zevenhuizen
Sasha is a Halifax native who graduated from Dalhousie University with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology in 2006. Growing up, she was a sports enthusiast, active in competitive canoe/kayak, swimming and running. Regular chiropractic care played an important role in her health maintenance and treatment of injuries.
During her time at Dalhousie, she was an athletic trainer with the Dalhousie varsity swim team. This sparked her interests in the fields of sport injury rehabilitation and myofascial work. The combination of her earlier years and Dalhousie experience, helped to create her passion for chiropractic work and the amazing results it had on people’s lives.
After travelling abroad for a year, she pursued her Doctor of Chiropractic degree. She graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto in 2011 and moved back to Halifax to establish her practice. Her personal goal has always been to achieve and maintain the best possible health and this is the same goal that she has for her patients. As an advocate of both wellness care and injury prevention, she uses a diversified chiropractic approach, which includes a focus on the spine and extremities as well as the implementation of myofascial release techniques (MRT). She is also certified in the use of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue work and Kinesiotape techniques to support muscular, postural and joint injuries.
Her practice encompasses chiropractic care for children, adults and the elderly. She has a passion for treating athletes and has a special interest in working with individuals with TMJ (temporal-mandibular joint) associated discomfort.
Sasha is a member of the Nova Scotia Chiropractic Association. She is a First Aid/CPR instructor, has acted as the team chiropractor for a Junior level hockey team and is an avid volunteer for a variety of non-profit organizations.
