Breanna Yaeger

Administrative Assistant

Breanna Yaeger

Administrative Assistant

Although Breanna grew up in the prairies, she always felt a pull towards the ocean, so it was only natural she ended up on Vancouver Island. She is nearly finished her certificate in the Human Dimensions of Climate Change at UVic and is keen to be working with a certified green clinic. With an environmentalist background, she is always looking to educate people and continue increasing her own knowledge.

As a former athlete, she is quite well acquainted with physiotherapy practices and the importance of maintaining one’s physical and mental health.

When not at the clinic, she’s likely off fermenting various foods or mixing a new kombucha combo. Recently, Breanna has gotten into propagating various types of plants. And much like other prairie transplants, she enjoys being outdoors and hiking on her days off, enjoying a more diverse landscape.

Chris Lamb

Registered Physiotherapist

MPT, BScKin, Active Rehabilitation, Persistent Pain/Injury Recovery

Meet Chris, a man of many interests that keep him busy. He loves to sing, play the piano, juggle, ride his bike, weight-train, practice tai chi, read, write, spend time at the beach, and do brain games.

Chris has been a registered physiotherapist since 2006 and has a broad array of experience working with people with orthopaedic and neurological conditions. He utilizes knowledge from the growing fields of neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to rewire throughout life based on experience) and pain science to optimize recovery. He is particularly interested in helping people rehabilitate from complex and/or long-standing pain/injuries, and strongly believes that in many cases a full recovery is possible.

Chris’ treatments are individually tailored, but they generally include: normalizing sensation in the area(s) of pain/dysfunction, movement re-training, specific guidance about how to safely increase exercise/activity level, mindfulness training, providing education, and using a variety of methods to reestablish a healthy mind-body connection. His therapeutic approach offers limited hands-on therapy.

Schedule: Mon+Fri 8:00am-1:00pm / Tues+Thurs 12:30pm-6:00pm

Zoe

Clinic Companion

Greeter, Stress Reduction Specialist, Treat Connoisseur

Zoe is our clinic greeter and mascot. She tells us she’s studying to be a certified therapy dog, but we don’t know how well it’s going—she gets a little bit distracted saying hi to our clients and other dogs that walk by the clinic. She does pour over her textbooks every night (literally, she slops water and drops chew toys on the pages) but hey, she tries her best.

Zoe is also a yoga enthusiast, but she is more of a yoga-as-you-go kind of girl. She performs upwards of 100 downward dog poses per day, so you’ll likely catch a glimpse of her practicing at the clinic.
