Serving Kelowna with chiropractic and health care services.

Thank you for visiting our website. Located in downtown Kelowna, The Core Centre of Health delivers a range of health care services that enable our clients to live life to the fullest. We grew from a simple chiropractic clinic and now offer an integrated range of services including:


Chiropractic in a nutshell is all about motion… When a doctor of chiropractic examines you, motion is one of the key factors.

Naturopathic Medicine

I sometimes compare naturopathic health care to car maintenance. If you change your oil regularly, you avoid pricey car expenses down the road.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of the soft tissues of the body including the muscles, fascia (thin covering of tissue over the muscles), ligaments and tendons.   (more…)

Better & Better, Massage Therapy

Dr. Troy Tater and team gave me my life back! After years of cumulative sports injuries, office desk atrophy and several car accidents, I was a broken human.
