DR. JESSICA DEE
Chiropractor & Clinic Director
I grew up in Orono and attended school in Newcastle and Bowmanville, I was also heavily involved in the community through the Orono Girl Guides Association; I am so thrilled to serve my hometown!
I have worked with organizations like the UOIT Ridgebacks hockey team and the Whitby Dunlops Senior A men's hockey team as an athletic trainer. I graduated from UOIT with a Bachelors' degree in Health Sciences (Honours), specializing in Kinesiology before attending CMCC in Toronto to become a Chiropractor. I have been drawn to the Chiropractic profession since I was a kid, I even did a speech on backpack safety in the 8th grade! After injuring my back in university and seeking care from a Chiropractor, I was sold.
I love helping people move better & recover from injuries. I have experience treating pain in the back, neck, shoulders, knees, hips, ankles, wrists, and have a special interest in helping women tackle pregnancy related discomfort. I am also trained to provide baseline concussion testing, as well as, assess and treat patients post-concussion. I am trained to analyze the cause and repercussions of your pain and offer valuable injury therapy and drug-free pain relief.

I grew up in a small village outside of Stratford but fell in love with the bigger city life when I moved to St. Catharines to study at Brock University. My husband and I are currently living in Oshawa with our young daughter, and I am so excited to be serving the residents of Bowmanville and surrounding areas.
I studied at Brock University where I obtained a four-year Bachelor of Science In Medical Sciences (Honours). My interest in Naturopathic Medicine was sparked during this time, as someone close to me was diagnosed with cancer. We discovered Naturopathic Medicine after completing conventional cancer treatment, and found comfort in knowing there was more that could be done to improve health and decrease the chances of the cancer returning. After this, I did a semester-long independent study where I shadowed Naturopathic Doctors in the Niagara region as well as wrote a paper on Intestinal Permeability. I then went on to receive a four-year Doctor of Naturopathy degree from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto.
Seeing my patients improving their health and feeling better after naturopathic treatments is such a joy for me. My goal is always to identify the root cause of your concerns and to stimulate the healing powers of the body. My areas of interest include Women's Health, digestion, and weight management, but I am currently accepting patients with any concerns. Treatments that I use include dietary and lifestyle changes, botanicals, supplements, acupuncture, and more! I look forward to helping you achieve your health goals!
I am a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and am registered and in good-standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario.
Anyone who is reading this looking for support needs to be commended on their strength and courage in reaching out. My role is to provide a compassionate, non-judgmental space for you to have meaningful and insightful conversations about your feelings, and discuss problems openly and honestly. By having a safe and supportive space, together we can explore the challenges you are going through and set achievable goals and develop healthy effective coping strategies. When you create skills to deal with difficult situations it allows you to be your best self and to be able to work through future challenging situations.
I have been supporting individuals with both Mental Health & Addiction related concerns for 20+ years both in the community and hospital-based settings. I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the CRPO since 2017 and have a special interest in strength-based, solution-focused approaches to psychotherapy with transitional-aged youth and adults.
Being able to support you through your journey and witness your growth and resiliency is the foundation of my professional practice. If you are feeling ready to explore therapy, I am currently accepting new clients and have evening and weekend appointments available in the Bowmanville area.
