Jonathan Bekic D.C.
Dr. Bekic graduated from Life University in 2014 with a Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree. While at Life University he was fortunate to study under some of the leading authorities in Thompson Terminal Point Technique as well as Activator Methods technique. These are the two of the most progressive and gentle chiropractic adjusting techniques.
Growing up in Windsor, Dr. Bekic has a passion for the community and a desire to serve and educate people about chiropractic care and living a lifestyle of wellness. He graduated from Sandwich Secondary School and it was there he discovered his passion and desire to be a chiropractor.
“Growing up I played sports all year round and if it wasn’t for my chiropractor there is no way I could have competed at an elite level or recover from injury so quickly. I was always amazed at the quality of care I received and how much faster I recovered than my teammates.”
Besides his passion for Chiropractic care, Dr. Bekic enjoys spending time with his family, his Church family, and exercising regularly. He is also a die-hard University of Michigan fan.
Kelly Upcott N.D.
Dr. Kelly Upcott obtained her Bachelor of Science from the University of Windsor before graduating from the four-year naturopathic program at The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2003. Dr. Upcott uses nutrition, herbs, homeopathy, acupuncture, and lifestyle counseling in practice.
She enjoys working with families and has a special interest in chronic inflammatory conditions, digestive disorders and women’s health issues. Kelly has published articles in the Metro and Windsor Body Magazine.
Focusing on prevention and the use of natural substances and treatments, Dr. Upcott’s aim is to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself. Her primary goal is to address the root cause of illness, rather than simply to treat or suppress symptoms. Each patient is treated as a whole person and their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions are taken into account when diagnosing and developing a treatment plan.
“I believe it is the combination of the healing power of nature and scientific methods that makes naturopathic medicine an important system of medicine for today’s health care. Now, more than ever, naturopathic doctors are poised to play a significant role in addressing some of the critical issues facing our health care system in Ontario, including the shortage of family physicians and the over-prescribing of pharmaceutical drugs.”
