Dr. Jordanna Clarfield-Henry
Dr. Jordanna Clarfield-Henry, or Dr. J as her patients call her, is a 2005 graduate of Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. She’s been in active practice ever since graduating with clinical honors.
I’ve always wanted to be a doctor. I have this passion for helping people with my hands. I want everyone I touch to get the best possible care. That way they can live life to the fullest.”
An Early Introduction to Chiropractic
Dr. Jordanna was born just around the corner from Health Haven and grew up here in mid-Toronto. She was introduced to chiropractic when she was 11 years old.
“My mom noticed that my hips were uneven.,” remembers Dr. J. “I was taken to my grandmother’s chiropractor who diagnosed me with scoliosis. I received chiropractic care all through my teenage years, and this kept my spine aligned and the scoliosis at bay.”
Dr Jordanna initially became interested in how the body works, moves and functions while studying the arts, dance and music throughout her childhood and teenage years. She developed a keen sense of aesthetics that can be seen in countless details throughout the practice. The calming effect is felt by everyone.
“Before university, I was encouraged to check out various alternative healthcare practitioners,” says Dr. J. “I noticed that chiropractors seemed to be the happiest. That convinced me to actively pursue chiropractic.”
Expanding into Other Disciplines
Dr. Jordanna is passionate about neurology and the whole body impact of chiropractic care. She is always learning something new by attending seminars and postgraduate programs to sharpen her skills. But her family comes first.
I’ve always dreamed of a multi-disciplinary practice of healers like ours. But I wanted to wait until my own children were older before launching my vision. Finally, the timing was right. And the rest, as they say, is history.”
Outside the Practice
When not in the practice, Dr. Jordanna can be found keeping up with her husband and two boys. They enjoy bike riding, ice skating, downhill skiing, horseback riding, and enjoying the outdoors as much as possible. And she is still involved in the arts.
“I love amateur adult theater. I volunteer at Unsung Heroes Productions every year. We put on a musical review and sing and dance our way to raising money for various charities.”

“Sometimes I’m their last resort. So when many patients see me they are often a bit skeptical,” confesses Dr. Barb. “But when chiropractic is able to produce results, they often become one of my most loyal patients.”
With a chiropractic career spanning almost three decades, Dr. Barb has seen just about everything. She has helped 100-day old newborns to 100-year old seniors. Thousands feel better, function better and live better.
But she’s lucky to even be alive.
“After high school I was invited to join the Ice Capades as a professional skater. I toured for three years,” remembers Dr. Barb. “That came to end the day a harness malfunctioned and I fell 38 feet to the ice. Chiropractors helped put me back together again and that’s what inspired me to become one myself.”
Dr. Barb completed her undergraduate studies at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. After completing her post-graduate studies at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College she immediately began private practice.
“I was able to build the practice of my dreams here in Toronto,” smiles Dr. Barb. “It was a joyful place where I got to see and help a wide variety of patients. And while my husband and I don’t have children ourselves, I do love helping young people. I like it when I can help catch spinal problems early and prevent some of the issues I see in my older patients.”
Finding Health Haven
After selling her former practice to a colleague, she discovered the opportunity at Health Haven. Living just a five-minute walk from the practice made it perfect. Now she is able to apply her experience and wisdom right here in her own neighborhood.
My approach to chiropractic has and is continuing to evolve. Starting out I relied entirely on traditional, hands-on adjusting. But I noticed limitations. So I pursued Activator Methods™. Later added another technique that also uses a handheld instrument. These days I often complement those approaches with a low-force tonal technique. It seems to help the other approaches work even better.”
These adjusting techniques equip Dr. Barb to address many types of physical issues. Since many emotional issues are stored in our bodies, these techniques often produce profound results.

Dr. David Hyde
“My goal is to help as many people as possible reach their full potential.”
Dr. David’s introduction to chiropractic care was witnessing its remarkable effects on his sister when she was involved in a serious car accident. Chiropractic was the only thing that helped her. Until then, Dr. David had never heard of the profession.
He was so intrigued by chiropractic that he met with his sister’s chiropractor to find out more. “I remember walking out of his office saying, ‘I have to do this.'”
Education & Experience
Dr. David graduated from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) with his Doctor of Chiropractic. While at the college, his biggest aha moment was seeing an intern interact with a patient. “Seeing the in-depth interaction the intern had with the patient and the partnership created between the two was eye-opening.”
In addition to running his practice, he also taught courses at CMCC and the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. Dr. David serves as an examiner for the Canadian Chiropractic Examining Board.
In His Spare Time
Dr. David loves spending time with his wife, son and daughter. He enjoys vacationing (particularly going to Disney World), swimming and weight training. Dr. David also likes to spend time outdoors.
Going Above and Beyond
When patients meet Dr. David, they know he’s there to help them achieve their goals. Patients trust him and appreciate the time he takes to listen to them and give them the best patient-centered care possible.
“I’m passionate about chiropractic and value the trust patients have for me in providing them a level of care beyond their expectations.”

Registered Massage Therapist
Before becoming an RMT, Lliam worked as a tree planter for close to a decade. The job was very physically demanding and he and many co-workers ended up with repetitive strain injury (RSI). Massage helped him recover and continue to preform through his career whilst enduring these injuries.
Choosing a Hands-on Helping Profession
After dealing with pain and injury from his tree-planting tasks, Lliam knew it was time to switch careers. “I also had an interest in how the human body works and recovers from injury, piquing my curiosity to study it further.” He also wanted to work in a field that would allow him to help people and see the results in a tangible way, every day. Massage was the perfect fit.
Lliam earned a Massage Therapy Diploma from Kikkawa College and became an RMT in May 2021. Throughout his education he took as many opportunities as possible to work in a wide range of diverse placements. This included, among others, a hospital working with the Trimesters program offering massage to mother’s with higher risk pregnancies. As well as with a centre focused on complex continuing care where he worked with patients who had suffered traumatic or life altering injuries and illness.
Tailored For Each Patient
Informed by these experiences and now working as a RMT, he believes that every massage treatment should be tailored to the client so they can achieve results orientated relaxation and care.
Lliam offers the following:
- Swedish massage
- Fascial release techniques
Always showing a genuine interest in patients, Lliam will take the time to get to know you and what’s brought you into the practice. He wants to help you feel comfortable at every visit.

“Having my roots in India, I grew up learning about natural home remedies from my mother. I guess this subconsciously instilled the concepts of natural healing into me. From a very young age, I was fascinated by human anatomy and biology. Growing up I realised my calling was in medicine and when it was time for me to choose a career, I was naturally inclined to holistic sciences.” That’s what drew Chaitali to Homeopathy, a holistic, natural medicine system that helps heal the person and not just treat conditions.
My focus is chronic illnesses of all age groups and all conditions.”
For Chaitali, seeing patients experience healing that makes a difference in their life is the most fulfilling aspect of her job as a Homeopath.
Education and Experience
Chaitali earned a Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine from C.M.P. Homeopathic Medical College in Mumbai, India. She graduated in 2011 and is a practitioner of classical Homeopathy. Chaitali is licensed and registered with the College of Homeopaths of Ontario.
She also is certified in the following:
- Child Health
- First Aid
Chaitali has participated in various Continuing Medication Education (CME) courses and has been a speaker at different international Homeopathic conferences and seminars. Chaitali also has presented papers at numerous national and international Homeopathic forums and written articles for local publications in India and Canada.
Practicing since 2011, Chaitali had successfully established her clinical practice at various hospitals and clinics in Mumbai as a Consulting Homeopathic Physician. She moved to Canada in July 2019.
A PASSION FOR GIVING BACK
Chaitali strongly believes in giving back to the community and has worked in the field of social Homeopathy for many years. She has conducted various health awareness camps for women and children focusing on early signs of cancer, women’s health, basic hygiene and child health.
In Her Spare Time
When she’s not helping patients at Health Haven, Chaitali enjoys dancing, which is her first love. In particular, she loves dancing to Bollywood music. She also likes to watch movies, listen to music or FaceTime with her family.

Amazing experience with Dr Jordanna Clarfield-Henri! After 2 sessions I am feeling much better! She knows perfectly her job and explains you clarely what is going on with your body! I highly recommend her! And for sure I will continue the Chiropracy sessions with her!
It was my first time going to Health Haven. I had the lovely Liam as my massage therapist. Liam was amazing at releasing my ultra tense back muscles. He is friendly, professional and very informative. I will be making Health Haven my go-to place for wellness.
I had a wonderful acupuncture treatment @Health Haven today with Sylvie Martin. She is very skilled and professional in her approach. I left feeling both mentally and physically balanced- with an extra spring in my step. Highly recommended both this clinic and clinician!
I felt safe with Dr Jordanna. She had alot of insights to my post concussion symptoms. More than most doctors do. She is versed not just in chiro but also did some cranial work and she helped me release my neck/head tension. I'm very excited about moving forward with her. Clinic is clean and welcoming and she speaks highly of her staff that provide the other treatments like acupuncture and massage.
