Dr. Kent Ferguson, D.C.

When there is a game or sporting event on, he has to watch.  It is impressive to see someone master a shot, stroke, dive etc. It takes a great deal of skill and dedication to do this. Athletic competition is what drew Dr. Ferguson to health care in the first place. Dr. Ferguson particularly likes to play basketball. During one of his high school basketball seasons he began to experience ankle and foot pain. His injury prevented him from participating with his team’s games and practices.  It kept him from doing something he loved to do.  This experience gave Dr. Ferguson a pretty good idea of what he wanted to do in life. He wanted to help people continue to do the activities or sports which they loved for as long as they wanted. For some this means participating in team sports or individual sports. For other this means gardening or enjoying their children and grandchildren. Dr. Ferguson saw that a healthy and properly functioning body is the only way to achieve this goal. Knowing this Dr. Ferguson focused his education to gain the knowledge necessary to help him help others. He holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Manitoba and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern College of Chiropractic. In order for any person to be healthy they must control their physical, chemical and emotional stresses. This means maintaining posture, reducing repetitive stress, paying attention to what they eat, supplementing appropriately and finding a way to manage responsibilities. Dr. Ferguson’s practice is wellness oriented, helping his patients prevent injury by maintaining their health through sound chiropractic principles.

Karen Eigler , Office Manager

My work history is very multi-faceted.  I grew up with a family owned restaurant which was my first exposure to serving the public and got a taste of the immediate positive feedback you can experience when providing excellent service.  I continued in various customer care positions through out the past 35 years in roles such as co-owning a roofing company, direct sales, managing a wellness centre and many years in telecommunications industry.  I have been fortunate to be recognized with several awards in various service industries as I truly enjoy helping people.  From the age of 27 I have done direct sales of quality wellness products on the side.  Being involved with these companies was not all about income but equally the positive community, the constant personal development and of course getting great products at cost. I have always had a strong interest in and a preference to natural forms of health and wellness for my own personal care so this clinic and the philosophies here has been a terrific fit for me and I have enjoyed working here since 2010. My hobbies have included getting certified in different energy healing modalities. I have certificates in Level 3 Reiki, Level 2 Quantum Touch and Level 2 Emotional Freedom Technique.  Music and dance are a huge part of my life.  I can often be found out dancing til the last song of the night in a local deep house music club.

Sharon Orescan, Office Assistant

I retired from the University of Alberta February 1, 2018 after 41 plus years of service.  I took some time off to complete projects around my house and enjoyed a summer off working in my garden and all the festivals the city has to offer.  By the end of the summer I realized I needed to do something more especially with winter coming on so decided a part time job was in order.  An amazing part time job at the Oliver Chiropractic Wellness Clinic caught my attention.  I try to stay healthy and truly believe in the value of a holistic approach which includes a chiropractor, massage therapist and the use of acupuncture.  This job was part time and  a perfect fit for me!

I enjoy gardening, music, movies, art projects and travel to name a few.  Working part time allows me time for my projects while working, learning and meeting new people.  I look forward to being of service to people seeking good health.
