Cabbagetown Chiropractic Health Centre recently welcomed two new members to their team and to Cabbagetown. Meet Nadia and Karen.

time and literally ZERO cooking skills. Nadia says, “I am so honoured to be a part of Cabbagetown, I absolutely love how
communal the area is!”

Nadia can be reached at the CCHC at 416-922-3020.
