After graduating from Chiropractic college in Toronto Dr. Stapleton set his sights on a move to the Okanagan.  The beauty of the area had inspired him since he was a child when his family would vacation in the area.  Originally from Ontario, Dr. Stapleton found that Dr. Penner and the team at KLO chiropractic were a great match as colleagues and for his treatment style. From there the clinic in Peachland has been established and Dr. Stapleton has enjoyed integrating himself into this wonderful community.

Dr. Stapleton strives not only to relieve painful symptoms but works hard to empower patients to achieve a higher level of function. In addition to this, he believes that Chiropractic fits in very well with other health care providers and enjoys working with these professionals to put his patients’ health care needs first.

Dr. Stapleton comes from a family of medical doctors and found during his pre-med undergraduate degree that the more holistic nature of Chiropractic better suited his interests. Dr. Stapleton is a true outdoor enthusiast, being an avid snowboarder, golfer and cyclist. He has found that Chiropractic treatments mixed with healthy living can help people to stay active in all of their endeavors. Dr. Stapleton enjoys creating regimens to assist his patients in fulfilling all of their active pursuits.

Arriving from England in 1998, Nick first became interested in massage therapy while being treated for a Rugby injury.  A few years later, after completing studies at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy 2004, he began his practice at Utopia Health and Wellness Centre, quickly establishing an extensive client base and helping his patients recover from a wide range of injuries and ailments.

Nick is delighted to start his new practice in the Central Okanagan, an area he has come to know very well as an avid participant in bicycle races over the years. As a committed therapist he looks forward to helping his patients achieve improved health and wellness.

It means that our practitioners use the newest hands on and scientifically researched methods, proven to provide quicker healing times and pain relief. We pride ourselves in working with other health care professionals including your medical doctor, to get you imaging or lab tests. No gimmicks, no sales tactics. Just results. Health care should benefit you, not us.
