Born and raised in Markham, Ontario, Dr. Chin moved to Uxbridge where she has lived and practised since 2003.
In her teenage years, Dr. Chin volunteered at a rehab clinic in Toronto for patients with cerebral palsy and autism. In this role she witnessed the enormous benefits of chiropractic treatment and acupuncture for a diverse patient population. This experience sparked her passion to pursue a career in health care. Her philosophy embraces addressing the underlying condition with a focus on treating the patient, not the disease.
Dr. Chin believes in a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan which may include a variety of methods including chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue techniques, ergonomic modifications, nutrition counselling, rehabilitation, custom orthotics, laser and acupuncture. She is experienced in pre-natal and post-natal care, helping moms-to-be with safe and gentle techniques that can improve mobility and decrease spinal stress during and after pregnancy. She also has experience with pediatrics, working with infants and kids of all ages, helping them develop to their full physical potential through regular chiropractic care.
Outside her professional life, Dr. Chin and her husband enjoy raising their three children. They are both health care professionals who take pride in living and working in the wonderful town of Uxbridge. They support a Ghana Health Team Mission that sends an Uxbridge health care team to provide care to remote villages in Ghana, Africa. She also enjoys a variety of activities such as volunteering, outdoor sports, playing instruments and spending time with friends and family. She is very excited to join the team at Axis Chiropractic in their amazing new office. She is now able to provide her patients with expanded hours including evenings and Saturday appointments.
