Hi, I am Shirley Xing. Founder of Chiro Moment.
Welcome to this space where your health comes first.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely.
Born and raised in China, I moved to Canada with my parents at the age of 14. There I attended high school in Ottawa, university in Victoria, graduate school in Calgary, and chiropractic college in Toronto. In 2016, I took a European adventure and fell in love with Amsterdam – I still feel lucky to call this place my home.
My first love was science. After graduating with a bachelor degree in chemistry with distinction, I began my master’s research on LED materials. It was at this time that I started to experience excruciating neck pain, possibly due to long hours in the lab and behind the laptop. After multiple visits to my doctor and physiotherapist, I was not seeing any improvements. This led me to my first chiropractic experience. I was hesitant and skeptical, but willing to try anything.
After three visits, my neck was getting much better, and to my surprise – my chronic headaches were gone too. I remember thinking – what a wonderful profession and I need to learn more about this.
Like a true scientist, I began doing research – feeding my curiosity, reading chiropractic literature and shadowing local chiropractors. Meanwhile, my heart already knew this was what I was meant to do. I applied to and was accepted by the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, where I happily dedicated four years of my life learning about the human body and mastering hands-on skills.
Over the last five years, I worked at a busy and vibrant chiropractic practice in Heiloo, alongside brilliant practitioners and countless wonderful patients. However, between the long commute, the need to be closer to my family (I have a young daughter who is growing up way too fast), and the increasing desire to create my own practice, I knew it was time to begin a new journey.
Life is made up of moments. What we choose to do in these moments ultimately defines our lives.
At Chiro Moment, I invite you to pause and take a moment just for you and your health. I am here to listen to your concerns, to assess how your body is moving in order to determine the cause of your discomfort, then to deliver hands-on treatments and guide you through creating changes that result in lasting improvements to your health.
My goal is to build a healing space where everyone feels welcome, where knowledge is communicated clearly, where care is thorough and personal, and where science meets humanity.
