Dr. Blessyl Buan is a Chiropractor, Acupuncture Provider, Pilates Instructor, Dance Health Consultant and Dance Artist.
Her desire to design a practice that combined art and healing started as a child. The first 14 years of her dance training took place in studios without a mirror. What seemed for many years as a disadvantage actually nurtured a heightened body awareness that would fuel her passion in learning about the body and how to improve performance.
She earned her Doctor of Chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and her Honours Bachelor degree in Kinesiology and certification in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture from McMaster University. With additional credentials in Medical Acupuncture (McMaster University), KinesioTape® and various myofascial release techniques, Dr. Blessyl fuses her clinical and dance expertise with exercise prescription to optimize performance for performing artists. Her conditioning certifications include: Stott Mat Pilates, Fletcher Barrework®, Towelwork® and Floorwork®, Progressing Ballet Technique (Beg. Int. Adv.) and Level 1 C-I Training™ (conditioning-with-imagery).
Proper alignment is important in order to keep up with your career, your family and your lifestyle. As a dancer, she has a passion to educate, treat, and prevent injuries of performing artists and high performers (whether in fitness, sports or business). As a mother, she can empathize with the joys and pains of growing a family. She helps parents to cope with their new “parent posture” like “baby on the hip” syndrome and how stress is internalized as a result of lack of sleep and keeping up with energetic kids!
In addition to manual therapy, each patient will receive a custom designed exercise program that is monitored by the program Physitrack which can be uploaded onto your smart device or desk top computer.
Dr. Blessyl is a contributing writer on dance health for the publication, The Dance Current and consults with various dance studios in the greater Toronto area. Her professional dance career was in film and television. Currently she is a principal dancer with Hataw Performing Arts and continues to expand her movement repertoire in various dance styles.
When not in the clinic, she focuses on raising and spending time with her two girls and two boys. She teaches Street Pilates Flow on Thursdays at 6:15pm.
