Dr. Villani graduated from the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic in Connecticut, USA after completing undergraduate studies at York University. She worked with health care teams in other wellness centres before opening her own clinic in 2012. She focuses on running an integrated health centre while striving to offer a general chiropractic practice using a combination of evidence-based and holistic care. She has a special interest in women’s general health and wellbeing, sporting injuries, fitness and nutrition.
Her interest in chiropractic stemmed from her own experience as a patient in a rehabilitation clinic following a series of sporting injuries. It was from this exposure that she decided to work and volunteer her time in the clinical setting. This complemented her love for athletics and promoting a healthy lifestyle. She was impressed with how well patients recovered after chiropractic care, and was fascinated by the principles of this discipline.
Dr. Villani focuses her attention on both the physical aspects of care and on the emotional and psychological components. Her love for continuing education and self-improvement has led her to become a certified provider of Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, neuro-structural taping (SpiderTech Kinesiotaping), fitting of compression hosiery, and in advanced biomechanics and orthotics. Dr. Villani is also Webster Technique certified, has taken courses in perinatal and pediatric care and enjoys working with children and providing perinatal care. Dr. Villani has also completed the Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program through McMaster University.
Dr. Villani was selected as a medical practitioner for the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto and enjoys working with athletes.
