Dr. Carly Youlton
Dr. Carly Youlton graduated Cum Laude from Logan College of Chiropractic, in Chesterfield, Missouri. She is a recipient of Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities recognition and holds an Honours degree in Human Biology.
Trained in multiple adjusting techniques, Dr. Youlton can accommodate patients of all ages, sizes, and conditions. Her active and progressive chiropractic philosophy also includes physical therapy through exercise and home care programs. Muscle and soft tissue therapy round out her treatment approach; using Active Release and myofasical techniques, nerve flossing, and other soft tissue therapies allows Dr. Youlton to effectively treat the muscles and connective tissues associated with joint pain and dysfunction.
Work stress and physical activities are the most common reasons one seeks a chiropractor. Carly makes it no secret that she has experienced much of the same conditions her patients seek treatment for, and this makes her an excellent doctor. As a former member of Canada’s National Track and Field team, Carly can relate well to stress and pain, and connects well with her patients as a result. Because of this exposure to high level athletics and her thorough understanding of injury alleviation and prevention, Dr. Youlton has a passion for caring for those dealing with stress, pain, or discomfort of any level.
Owen Parnell is an Acupuncturist raised and educated here in Victoria, BC. Owen’s interest in health and desire to live a meaningful life helping others inspired this career choice. Owen enrolled in Oshio College’s Acupuncture Program in 2014, and is now an instructor at the school.
Pain relief, emotional stress and it’s physical manifestations are Owen’s forte, and he produces affirming results in a broad range of conditions. He uses martial arts and meditation as tools for sharpening his awareness. This improves his ability to provide pleasant treatments with great results. Owen is committed to professional integrity, and is always intent on giving the most effective treatments possible, and helping patients recover their health with as few treatments as necessary.
Owen doesn’t view acupuncture treatment as a magic bullet for healing the body, but a tool to help coordinate the body in healing itself. We all know our bodies have amazing self-healing abilities. Sometimes our bodies are just faced with circumstances that they can’t work out on their own.
In the treatment room, Owen integrates massage and acupressure, cupping, moxibustion, TDP therapy, and range of motion exercises. Knowing how well different modalities can work together, he is pleased to ally with the other practitioners at Refined Health Clinic, to further benefit your quality of life.
