Dr. Allison Christie
Dr. Allison Christie, born and raised in Orillia, made Huntsville her home in 2012. Allison was a provincial-level gymnast throughout her childhood and coached the sport for 7 years, working with children from 1-18 years old. Multiple sports injuries in gymnastics, football and track and field led her to chiropractic care and although she was leery at first, the results were undeniable. Exposure to the art of chiropractic fostered her desire to alleviate pain in all forms. This led Allison to the University of Waterloo where she completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. Co-op placements at Back to Function in Orillia and Able Chiropractic in Huntsville solidified her love for chiropractic and she completed her degree in 2019 at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Being pregnant with her first child through her internship at the college created a passion for treating pregnancy related pain. Low back and pelvic pain plagued her pregnancy and it is her mission to ensure women know there are treatments available during such an incredible time in their lives. She is a proud member of the International Chiropractic Paediatric Association which provides additional training in treating infants/children and is certified in Webster Technique for treating pregnant women. Dr. Christie is also certified in Mental Health First Aid as well as Smart Tools Instrument Assisted Techniques and she practices diversified chiropractic.

Growing up as a competitive dancer taught Lorraine the value of a healthy body and mind. At a young age she knew that her adult career would involve the health and wellness of the human body.
Lorraine discovered her passion for Massage Therapy at Sir Sandford Fleming College. After graduating in 2000 she moved to Huntsville and began her professional career. The early years were spent working in both the rehabilitation setting and the Spa environment. Along the way Lorraine married her high school sweetheart, had two children and in 2014 she joined the team at Knox Chiropractic. Lorraine feels honoured to be included with this wonderful group of women working to improve the quality of life for the people in our beautiful town.
Born and raised in Toronto, her first office job was for her father; on days off from school she would go to work with him answering phones, delivering mail, making photocopies- whatever she could do to help. She brings the same genuine desire to help to the team at Knox.
Kali's ties to Huntsville run deep; her great, great grandfather was the first minister at All Saints Anglican, her great-grandmother ran a resort on Fairy Lake, and her grandmother was born in town. Spending her summer and winter holidays locally meant it was an easy transition when she moved here in the late 70's to finish high school. Now Kali has 2 adult children, a cat and (too) many houseplants.
Kali's natural ability to connect with people makes her a welcome face at the front desk. Her varied experiences in education, retail and the food and beverage industry have given her the wide range of skills necessary to run a busy office. "Every day can have a new challenge- I really love my job. It's such a gift to work with this incredible group of women."

Dr. Rebecca Bouwhuis was born and raised in Orillia, Ontario. Rebecca was always active growing up, playing soccer, football and track before choosing to focus on her hockey career. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo where she developed her passion for understanding how the human body functions. While at UW, she also competed as the goalie for the University of Waterloo Women’s Hockey Team while also balancing goalie coaching opportunities.
Rebecca always knew she wanted to pursue a career in the health field. Originally pursuing a degree in Health Sciences, she became fascinated with the kinesiology and anatomy courses and so switched her degree as she sought to understand how body mechanics influenced our everyday movements as well as those when playing sports. This led Rebecca to the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College where she achieved her Doctor of Chiropractic in 2020. After graduating, Rebecca treated at clinics in Toronto before choosing to return to her small-town roots and making the transition to Huntsville.
Rebecca is passionate about helping her patients feel and move better, treating acute and chronic injuries for athletes, weekend warriors, desk warriors and more. She practices a diversified technique, incorporating multiple treatment styles including manipulations and mobilizations, focused muscle therapy techniques, taping, and tailored rehabilitation and exercise programs as well as providing education and lifestyle modifications.
When not seeing patients, you can usually find Rebecca at the hockey rink, either playing for or coaching local hockey teams.
