Meet Our Amazing Family of Chiropractors, Massage Therapists and Acupuncturists

Chestermere Family Chiropractic has been serving the community of Chestermere for over 20 years. Our exceptional staff is very professional and looks to maintain a high ethical standard, friendly service and complete client privacy. We are happy to introduce you to our team:

Dr. Ted D’Amico,
Chiropractor

 

My name is Ted D’Amico, and I have been a practicing chiropractor since 1980. I was eight years old when I had my first chiropractic adjustment. After that, my parents always took me to the chiropractor first before the MD. From this, my love for chiropractic grew, especially the natural approach to health without drugs or surgery.


I have developed a family-style practice for the past 41 years. One of my biggest compliments is seeing my clients grow up with the belief in chiropractic and having them refer generations of family members to me.


I have 20 chiropractors in my family, including my wife, Dr. Gail, two brothers, my son, Jared, his partner, Bridget, and a host of in-laws. So, as you can see, chiropractic is a way of life for us.

Dr. Gail Gdanski,
Chiropractor

 

Hi, my name is Gail Gdanski, and I have been in practice for 40 years, graduating in 1981. 


We have 20 chiropractors in my family, starting with my dad. My son, Jared, just graduated from chiropractic college, and my daughter, Brittani, is a veterinarian.


Chiropractic is my passion, and I am lucky because I get to have fun while helping people. My husband Ted and I are joining to become the dynamic duo of Chestermere Family Chiropractic. We are also pleased to announce that my son  Dr. Jared and his partner, Dr. Bridget will be joining us as of July 2021

Dr. Jared D’Amico, Chiropractor

 

Hi, I'm Jared. I recently graduated from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. I have been lucky enough to have grown up with chiropractic, as my first adjustment was when I was only minutes old. I am the 19th chiropractor in my family and cannot wait to start serving the community of Chestermere. Chiropractic has helped me immensely over my lifetime. Before chiropractic college, I played Hockey on a scholarship in the US, and I knew regular chiropractic care gave me an edge over the competition. Not only did it help boost my energy and recovery time, but it kept me on the ice as I never missed a game due to injury. I am unbelievably fortunate to practice with my two amazing parents, Dr. Ted and Dr. Gail and my beautiful partner, Dr. Bridget. I am passionate about helping people reach their health goals. I grew up in Chestermere and am very grateful that I can give back to this fantastic community.

Dr. Bridget Liddell, Chiropractor

 

Kia Ora, I'm Bridget and I am from New Zealand. I graduated from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in 2020, where I met Dr. Jared. I moved to Canada shortly after graduating and feel very grateful and excited to be joining the Chestermere Family. I love taking care of families and have a particular interest in ensuring babies and children grow and thrive to their full potential. I got into chiropractic after retiring from my tennis career due to injury. From regular chiropractic care, I was able to heal and perform like I never had before. I wish I would have found chiropractic sooner, and this drives my passion for helping as many people as possible reach their peak performance and optimal health. I can't wait to meet you and help you thrive!

Carrie,
Chiropractic Assistant

 

I started at Chestermere Family Chiropractic in November 2020 and quickly became a part of the family. I have always been fascinated by how the body moves and works to help us live a functional, purposeful, and happy life! The holistic approach to wellness taken here at Chestermere Family Chiropractic aligns with my belief.


The best part of working here is seeing the incredible positive changes that an adjustment or massage can have on a person’s life. I enjoy being an integral part of the team, and I look forward to greeting every patient with a smile and following them on their journey.

Cassie,
Chiropractic Assistant

 

I have worked in this office since September 2008. I have seen the many ways that chiropractic can help people. I am so happy to be a part of this team and enjoy seeing the patients realize the incredible healing benefits of chiropractic care and massage therapy.


 I am here to help with any of your questions, the organization of appointment schedules, insurance/billing needs, and making you feel comfortable in our office.


Working at the front desk allows me to meet, greet and interact with so many great people as they come and go. In addition, I have a front-row seat to watch the progress they make in this office. I have seen these changes in myself, my family, and patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly.

I am very passionate about the field of massage therapy. Whether you are looking to relax and unwind or seeking relief from an unrelenting pain. I am here to help. 

I believe that every client is unique in the type of care they will need. Which means I work with each client differently to determine which modalities, techniques, and specific treatments will bring forward the best results.

Kristen Woitas
 R.Ac.

 

Hi, I’m Kristen, a Registered Acupuncturist with the College of Acupuncturists of Alberta (CAA). I received my Diploma of Acupuncture from MacEwan University and earned my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Lethbridge prior to my acupuncture education. 

 

My passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine began after experiencing the benefits of acupuncture and the profound impact it had on my own health. Inspired by its efficacy and emphasis on supporting the body’s self-healing abilities, my goal is to assist individuals of any age in achieving and maintaining wellness.

 

I’m a compassionate practitioner who enjoys getting to know each of my clients, educating them, and making them feel at ease throughout the treatment. By combining knowledge of Chinese and Western medicine, I develop individualized treatment plans utilizing a gentle approach to acupuncture, as well as, incorporating other modalities such as fire cupping, gua sha, tui na (Chinese therapeutic massage) and moxibustion therapy.

I love coming to work with my Mummy and Daddy, Dr. Bridget and Dr. Jared, because I meet so many happy people. I am very friendly, so feel free to give me lots of pats and treats (which you can get at the front desk). In my spare time, I love long walks, paddleboarding on Lake Chestermere and tug of war.
