Dr. Mitch Wegmann, R.Ac DTCM

Always grateful and enlivened with his career, Dr. Wegmann finds purpose in the opportunity to support people's health through acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Choosing a life path, and one with true purpose is a challenge for all. Dr. Wegmann was fortunate to discover his passion for Chinese medicine only after a series of life events opened his eyes to a new paradigm of health and wellness.

Initially, he watched his sister suffer through chronic and debilitating back pain and multiple surgeries that provided no relief. Then he met a wonderful chiropractor who educated him on the true innate healing abilities of the body and mind. Finally, he was able to overcome his own anxiety and insomnia issues with the help of acupuncture. This final experience with acupuncture was so profound (not to mention, extremely intriguing), that Dr. Wegmann knew this healing art would now be a main focus on his life path.

After finishing his Bachelor's degree in Social Sciences from Central College in Pella, Iowa, Dr. Wegmann went on to complete a four-year doctoral program at the Canadian Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine. His education took him to Jinan, China where he completed an intensive clinical internship at a teaching hospital for Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Currently, Dr. Wegmann owns and operates Calgary Acupuncture Centre in Calgary, Alberta. His practice is dedicated to helping others achieve more balance and freedom in life through the use of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Dr. Wegmann's passion is working with patients to help them overcome physical and emotional challenges and rediscover joy and ease in life. His growing practice is balanced with quality time at home and outdoors with his wife and three sons.

Colin Merritt, RMT

Hi, I'm Colin. I am very grateful to be a part of the great team of therapists at Vibe Health and Spine. NUCCA and Upper-Cervical Chiropractic is not new to me as I have known Dr. Sloane Hunter for over 15 years as my own chiropractor and have worked collaboratively with this form of care for two decades in my professional practice of massage.

Massage Therapy treatments are a blend of my years of experience and the different courses I have taken over the past 27+ years. I have studied Craniosacral Therapy, myofascial and neuromuscular techniques as well as Orthobionomy, a gentle technique based on Osteopathy. I am also very interested in the energy aspect of the body and have studied Healing Touch (TM) as an added benefit to support a person's healing potential. Outside of Massage, music is an important part of my life. I have studied the Shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) for 6 years, which my cats do not approve of. Cats do approve of a good massage though! I look forward to meeting you and help be a part of your healing journey.
