Whitney Dikoume, Certified Athletic Therapist
Growing up in an athletic family, sports and various injuries have always been a part of my life. I have always been fascinated by the bodies ability to heal and come back to its original state like nothing ever happened.
I was drawn to Athletic Therapy because it a profession that actively looks at the body as a whole when guiding it either through a rehab program or an injury prevention program.
I strongly believe that the activities we go through everyday affect the way our bodies are built and how they react to various stresses and injuries. This is why there is no same remedy for what might seem like the same injury.I graduated from the University of Calgary in 2014 with a Bachelor of Kinesiology and an Advance Certificate in Athletic Therapy from Mount Royal University.
Other than an Athletic Therapist, I am also a personal trainer. This scope allows me to train and educate people who would otherwise never have access to the knowledge of an Athletic Therapist.
When I am not working as an athletic therapist or a personal trainer, I’ll be found somewhere around Calgary with my camera!

Lindsay Ibey, Certified Athletic Therapist
Being an Athletic Therapist was a dream of Lindsay’s from a very young age. She received her Bachelors degree in Kinesiology at the University of Calgary and shortly after, her Certification in Athletic Therapy.
Her appointments will make you think differently about the body. She uses a combination of skills including NKT (Neurokinetic Therapy) to pinpoint and correct compensation patterns of the body as well as CranioSacral Therapy to gently allow the body to self correct and realign.
Though Lindsay is at work most of the time, when she’s not, she is most likely traveling a new country or spending time with her fiance and friends.
Kirsten Toth, Certified Athletic Therapist
Kirsten has always been passionate about sports and helping others and was naturally drawn to a career as an Athletic Therapist. She graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelors of Kinesiology and received an Advanced Certificate in Athletic Therapy from Mount Royal University.
Playing high level soccer for 15 years and rugby throughout high school, she is no stranger to the high levels of stress the body takes as an active individual and has dealt with her own injuries over the years. Having the ability to understand the body and how to make another person feel better is one of the main reasons she loves what she does!
Kirsten currently works in the field with the Okotoks Jr. A Raiders Lacrosse and Northstars Hockey Association.When she’s not in the clinic or at the rink you can find her exploring the outdoors in the mountains, brushing up her photography skills, or enjoying different music events such as open mics, concerts or local shows throughout the city.
