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

alisonAllison’s Journey into the world of natural healing began at a young age. She spent much of her youth dancing, active and in yoga classes where she was always present and learning about the body’s anatomy, physiology and holistic methods to restore and train the body to its optimal state of health and mobility. She found that the more she learnt the more her passion to pursue a career in alternative health grew.

She employs many modalities in her treatments including myo-fascial release, trigger-point therapy, muscle energy technique and deep-tissue techniques.  Her treatments are highly personalized aiming to empower her clients with the tools necessary for their recovery.  She uses these therapies to treat conditions such as: adhesive capsulitis, scoliosis, disc herniation, carpal tunnel syndrome, It band friction syndrome, piriformis syndrome, whiplash and others. Her passion lies in educating clients about their bodies and to help aid them in being able to be more in tune with what their body is trying to tell them.


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
