Dr. Pala Gillis
Having grown up on an organic farm in rural Saskatchewan, the healthy living choices of her parents helped to inspire Dr. Pala Gillis to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Gillis graduated in 1995 from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College after first completing two years at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.
Dr. Gillis began her career in Regina, SK, but eventually moved to Manitoba and established her own practice in Brandon. Since 2000, she has been helping patients in the Westman region to gain greater mobility, be more flexible and lead healthier lifestyles.
“I grew up going to a chiropractor on a regular basis, as did my family. It was part of our regular life, so I was certainly familiar with the practice from a patient’s perspective. I was drawn to the profession because it really fit well with my philosophy of a holistic approach to health care.” - Dr. Pala Gillis.
As a business owner and mother of five young children, Dr. Gillis understands the demands and pressures of a busy lifestyle, but works hard to find a healthy balance for herself and her family.
