Jack Connelly, R.Ac

Registered Acupuncturist

(705) 740-0101

Jack practises classical Chinese acupuncture.  The ancient Chinese believed that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface.  These channels, called meridians are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues.  An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up the flow in one part of the body and restricts it in others.  The meridians can be influenced by needling the acupuncture points; thus unblocking the obstruction at the dams and restoring flow.  In this way, acupuncture treatments can help the internal organs by correcting imbalance and improve circulation of energy through the meridians.

The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain.  These chemicals will either change the experience of pain or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the internal regulating system of the body.  The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in enhancement of the body’s own natural healing abilities and in the promotion of physical and emotional well being.   A session takes about 45 minutes.

bonnie whiteBonnie White — Office Manager

Bonnie has been working with Dr. Owens for over 20 years and is a highly capable and compassionate care provider in her own right.  Not only does she ensure that the business end of the clinic is efficient, she has a way of making our patients feel like she has all the time in the world for them.

She is responsible for the oasis of peace that many experience in our office. Somehow, Bonnie can juggle the constant distractions of our reception room, answer the phone, fit urgent appointments into an already packed schedule, amuse children and infants while parents enjoy a few minutes of solitary treatment bliss, meet and greet and even shovel snow! Out-of-clinic hours, Bonnie is a network marketing professional with doTERRA

Monica Preston — Office Assistant

Monica is the newest member of the Core Team bringing with her more than 20 years of client care and office management experience. Her goal is to help maintain the peaceful, friendly, family oriented oasis-like atmosphere that she has always appreciated as a patient here at the clinic.

Monica and her husband Ashley have a blended family of seven children, most of whom are grown and spreading their wings and all of whom know first hand the benefits of regular chiropractic care. Outside of the office Monica enjoys coaching minor hockey and soccer, playing volleyball and trying to hone her photography skills. Monica is also a network marketing professional with doTERRA
