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.  more

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

Clinical Psychologist

Pat was still awake at 1 am. The sheets were twisted into knots, 2 glasses of milk had been drunk, and sleep was still far away. The stress and worries just kept churning around.  more

Life Coach/Counselling

Coaching is a training or development process via which an individual is supported while achieving a specific personal or professional competence result or goal. more


Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

Has the power of anger, anxiety or pain become too familiar in your home? All of us need to feel safe to explore, move forward, and grow. The good news?  more

What is Holistic Nutrition?

Caroline Braun

Registered Massage Therapist

Caroline is a graduate of the 2-year Registered Massage Therapy program at Vancouver Career College in Kelowna. Having worked in a behind the scenes capacity in health care over the last 10 years, Caroline decided to change careers so she was taking a more proactive, hands on approach to both her career and her own health.

As someone who suffers from chronic headaches, Caroline found that massage had an incredible impact on both their occurrence and severity. Massage had such a profound impact in her life that she wanted to be able to share that with others. Through hands on time, education, and the importance of self-care using both therapeutic exercise and stretching, Caroline’s focus is to get her clients to be able to live their lives to the fullest with as little pain as possible.


Dr Tater has been the most effective Chiropractor I have experienced.  I highly recommend his office services!

It was such a pleasure to meet Michaela. For the first time in many weeks I’m feeling some relief in my neck and shoulders..aaahhhh! and some hopefulness in healing my body/soul.

Aaahhhhh!, Massage Therapy

Every appointment with Pam results in a tangible change for the better. I’m glad she’s my therapist.

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. Certain body movements would trigger pain and I feared simple activities such as shoulder-checking in the car or throwing a ball for the dog. Eventually, muscles started

They gave me my life back! —Malcolm Potts, Web Client
