DR. SHALINI BHAT

Dr. Bhat is a Chiropractor and double certified Functional Medicine Practitioner (IFMCP, CFMP) with over 10 years of experience in the wellness field. She is the founder of TMB, the designer of multiple virtual FUNC MED programs, and the creator of THE PERFECT FIIT (a signature workout) and TMB FIIX (a unique treatment method using fascial release, movement and acupuncture techniques).

Her signature approach to FUNC MED focuses largely on teaching. She distills complex information into relatable analogies that you can understand and activate meaningfully for your own body and lifestyle. Because when you understand WHY you’re doing something, long-lasting transformations are attainable.

Her down-to-earth nature was born from her own personal injuries and gut-health challenges that western medicine was unable to remediate. She’s felt traditional systems not working in her own body and understands first hand the frustration that comes with that.

In her private practice, her treatments and programs focus on providing patients with actionable road-maps to moving, feeling and looking their best using all her tools, from fascia and movement, to hormones and gut health. And since she truly lives the lifestyle she shares with her patients, you may end up with all sorts of extra personalized bio-hacks.

Dr. Bhat works with people who have been told they’re “normal” by their doctors, yet feel “off” (bloating, low energy etc.) She cuts through the noise and fads to bring you the most relevant, FUNC MED testing and scientific research for your body, your mind and your microbiome.

Never apologize for looking and feeling your best.
Vitality is the new vanity and we're here to show you how!

The Movement Boutique, better known as TMB, is a vibrant, next generation Toronto functional medicine clinic, Pilates studio and wellness brand that focuses on health empowerment through tailored services that fit you better than designer couture.

We believe that true wellness means moving well, feeling amazing and looking great, because internal vibrancy ultimately shows up on the outside!

The TMB method is a person-centered approach to health. We functionally assess, test and treat the whole person. In other words, we treat YOU, not your diagnosis by addressing your current concerns while also future-proofing your body and mindset. Even our own patients can’t quite describe what we do and often resort to saying, “They’re just magic!”

We empower our community of wellness seekers and action-takers inspired to change and show them a new way of thinking to upgrade their health.

DR. SHELLEY PINARD

Dr. Shelley is driven by one simple idea: everyone can achieve greater health with the right tools, especially kids.

Passionate about TMB’s pediatric FUNC MED programs, she adores working directly with parents to help them and their little ones unlock healthy, vibrant futures! (And for her hardworking mamas, she provides our TMB FACE treatments for some pampering!)

When it comes to injuries, she loves playing detective and finding the root cause of her client’s pain and dysfunction. She addresses individuals as whole, unique systems and lives for the magic of our signature TMB FIIX treatments. 

Dr. Shelley practices what she preaches and is always striving to find innovative ways to upgrade her own daughter’s health. When she’s not nerding out on new research or working one on one with a client, you can find her in the studio doing Perfect FIIT or a silly dance to bring a smile to someone’s face.

{CHIROPRACTIC AND ACUPUNCTURE}

DR. MICHELLE SOLOMON

Michelle doesn’t believe in “quick fixes” and wants everyone to move well and without pain so they can enjoy all aspects of their lives. She’s passionate about how the body moves and loves learning the most current information to further understand the mechanism of someone’s injury.

Her interest in movement is reflected through her additional training in functional integrated acupuncture, active release therapy, osteo articulate joint pumping, concussion management, and cupping.

Her treatment plans incorporate a variety of modalities that will impact the muscular and nervous system for best results.

In her spare time, Michelle can be found playing with her daughter, partaking in Pilates and cooking healthy treats for her family. And of course, there’s always time for a bit of reality tv and skincare – it’s about balance, right?

JULIA GRUNDY

Julia is an aspiring chiropractor and dedicated administrative assistant. Passionate about empowering people to overcome their physical and mental obstacles so they can be the best versions of themselves, she studied Kinesiology at Western University and abroad on the west coast of Australia.

She’s equally passionate about movement and helping people to feel connected to their bodies.

As organized as she is enthusiastic, Julia is one of the bright faces who will greet you whenever you visit or call TMB and is always happy to answer any questions you may have. 

In her spare time she loves spending time at the cottage, exploring the amazing restaurants in her beautiful city and spending time with friends and family.

{CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH AND PILATES INSTRUCTOR}

KATIE BURNS

Katie is a multi-passionate wellness enthusiast with a background in business administration, culinary management and nutrition. Additionally, she loves helping people learn how to embrace movement through TMB’s signature Pilates style.

She’s experienced first hand how changing health habits and incorporating positive daily habits can transform your entire life. She believes that you become a happier person all around when multiple areas of your life are in alignment and thinks that everybody deserves to feel excited and happy to wake up and start their day.

In her spare time she enjoys cooking (always with music and a glass of wine), watching scary movies and doing anything in the sunshine. And when the sun isn’t around, she likes to curl up with a good book or two, as well as partake in regular meditations to keep herself centered and in alignment.

Lyndsay Reddick

Lyndsay is a Certified Nutritional Practitioner and Holistic Chef. Her passion for all things health and wellness, and her own experiences within the wellness field lend to her support and understanding of other’s health journeys. Her positive attitude and love of being part of a team made joining the TMB family a no-brainer! 

Lyndsay is equally as passionate about customer service and has a deep love for organizing. She will be the one greeting you with a smile when you come in for your treatments! 

When she’s not busy welcoming you to TMB and supporting the behind-the-scenes clinic magic, she’s spending her time horseback riding, taking early morning pilates classes, and baking gluten-free treats for her friends and family.
