Oh baby! We want you to feel good, heard and seen. We combine trauma informed practices with cutting edge techniques.

Who we are

TBC is a collective of practitioners, services and environmentally friendly-products designed to facilitate your journey towards wellness, health and balance; whatever that means to you. As a team, TBC is committed to supporting you as you navigate the (sometimes overwhelming) process that is wellness and balance.

What makes TBC special isn’t just that we have an incredible array of advanced and powerful modalities and resources, it’s that we care deeply about our clients and customers and go above and beyond to ensure every individual feels heard, seen and supported.

At TBC, we believe that wellness is a balance of vulnerable and real work, combined with plenty of moments of ease, joy and fun. Health doesn’t have to be hard and serious all the time–we want you to enjoy the journey and have great connections along the way. We are ready to get down to business… and have a few laughs along the way.

Team

We don’t mean to brag, but we have a pretty incredible team of people available for in-person and virtual services. Get to know the team below.

Approach

Using a unique and cutting edge set of assessment and treatment modalities, I like to look at each client as a whole. I take a thorough and detailed history to get a deep understanding of each client and the unique history they have experienced in order to create a detailed map of their nervous system. This history is the most important facet of treatment as it allows me to navigate the intricacies of every unique person I work with. Nothing is cookie cutter because no two nervous systems are the same or have had the same experiences. Together, we then create a unique and detailed treatment plan that aligns with each client’s goals and needs. Danielle also speaks French conversationally.

Approach

I help restore your body’s factory settings by helping you move better. I zoom in with my eagle eyes on what is and isn’t moving and work with you to find strategies to get your parts moving better. I’m super keen on foot function and hacking the role of gravity and momentum in getting your body to do what it’s designed to do. I also enjoy how getting your breathing just right can instantly alleviate pain and improve your posture.

Approach

It all starts with your assessment. Then, seeing where you are currently and taking note of any limitations stopping you from where you want to be. I blend multiple modalities of strength training, breathing, and functional joint/mobility training to put the best possible program design forward for you to work through with me. It’s dynamic and flexible, knowing that as the weeks go on, there will be changes and adaptations made so that everything will be as effective as when you started.

Approach

The basis of my work is the knowledge and belief that regular movement is a fundamental building block for a healthy and happy life. In our collaboration, we will identify gaps in your movement practice and fill them with smart programming; this often includes supporting my clients in looking at their beliefs, mindsets, and broader habits. Further, I aim to help my clients become more self-sufficient about their health and needs, resulting in creating healthy habits, a regular movement practice, which ultimately leads to enjoying life by moving pain-free and confidently. Bettina speaks Swiss German and German fluently.

Approach

My treatment approach involves addressing the underlying cause of injury through listening to patients' stories. I believe that having good listening skills will allow me to better understand my patients' lifestyle, their mechanism of injury and how lifestyle modifications can aid in recovery and prevention of future injury. I enjoy working with a wide range of individuals from diverse backgrounds, whether it be athletes, office workers or those with chronic injuries. I believe that working together as a team with my patients is the key to having a smooth and successful rehabilitation. Shirin speaks Farsi fluently and Swedish conversationally.
