Meet the Team
Dr. Dave Blocksom
I was born and raised in Hanna Alberta. In 2010, I graduated from Texas Chiropractic College in Houston Texas and have been practicing in Red Deer ever since. Experiencing medical rotations in upper extremity orthopedics, neurosurgery, nutrition and learning from the experience of numerous chiropractors has enabled a unique perspective to accelerate patient healing. I have a passion to treat individuals and families in the community with chiropractic, I am continually taking courses every year to further my knowledge. In 2016 I completed my Acupuncture studies to further help my patients. My goal is to empower patients towards optimal health. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and three boys.
I also have a chiropractic clinic in the great community of Trochu.

Emma Cooke RMT
I was born in England and moved here shortly after high school with my family. I started massage in 2013 with he intent to help people. Showing people you truly care and listening to their needs has helped me develop as a therapist and person. It has been a very rewarding career and being on a team that cares about the patients needs makes it a fulfilling and fun place to work. In 2016 I took my doula training to better serve my pregnant patients and take on new challenges. I love what I do and look forward to accomplishing positive results with everyone I meet. When I am out of the office I am outside hiking the mountains and enjoying life.
