During my undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph, I studied extensively in the areas of human biomechanics, nutrition, and pharmaceutical sciences. I realized that while I had an express interest in these domains, that independently, they didn’t hold the key to how one should approach health. This insight started my journey of becoming a chiropractor.
Throughout the course of my university years, much of my time was spent working in a medical health centre. The experience I acquired working with young children, seniors, individuals with acquired brain injuries, and late stage Alzheimer’s patients gave me great insight into how important health and wellness are to one’s quality of life. This truly made me appreciate the blessings of good health, and motivated me to enable people to pursue health goals. After gaining this experience working in the health care field, I also realized that it is not only about making sick people better, but about keeping healthy people well, two components that I believe chiropractic care offers.
In the summer of 2013, I started as a chiropractic student at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, Ontario. It was rewarding, as I had the opportunity to work in a number of chiropractic clinics in Toronto and the surrounding cities. I was mentored and received chiropractic care from some excellent practitioners, who used a variety of chiropractic techniques, which they passed on to me. My first hand experience receiving chiropractic treatment further reinforced its benefits.
My passion as a chiropractor is two fold – the first is to help people manage health concerns and obtain appropriate care, and the second is to apply preventative medicine, to ensure that people, once corrected, stay healthy.

I was involved in a slip and fall accident 5 years ago and have been in therapy since. Due to unfortunate circumstances, I lost my massage/Cranial practitioner, whom I had been with since the accident. It was hard to feel that I could trust anyone, or that they would know my needs as well as she had. When I began researching, something always brought me to Blessingways Chiropractic Wellness Center. I was drawn to the philosophy of Blessingways, and in that they offer so many healing modalities (traditional therapies not always what my body needs).
Man was my intuition right! I was blessed to make my first appointment with Dr. Laurence, who I was immediately connected to. She is thorough, organized, thoughtful and meticulous about the way that she approaches her profession and in the first few weeks uncovered some underlying issues that had not been by any other until this point. She has worked with me for a few months now and I am amazed at the difference. I feel lighter, can do far more than I have been able to in a long time, my pain has reduced so much and I am sleeping far better because my body doesn’t constantly ache and hurt! She is very intuitive with her methods, I appreciate that she listens and varies her treatment based on how my body is the day of treatment, as well as what the has occurred in the time between visits. I am eternally grateful for my visits and time with Dr. Laurence and her giving me the ability to do things that have challenged me over the last five years! I also know that we have fostered a long term friendship!
Dr. Dion is one of the most empathetic and kindest Chiropractors (and person) I have ever met! She will take more then enough time to not only get to know your condition thoroughly, but get to know you as an individual. Dr. Dion is also a fantastic adjuster! I would highly recommend anyone in the area to go see her for their Chiropractic treatment!

Top notch care was always provided to me from Laurence. Helped me recover from nagging shoulder/hip problems and I was back in the gym again in no time. Not just comfortable adjustments but always a positive caring demeanour and glowing smile. Thank you for everything! – SAM, H
I was Dr Dion's classmate and she is extremely smart and knowledgeable and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who needs chiropractic treatment.
Dr. Dion is an excellent practitioner, very understanding, and listens to her patients. Very skilled, and always exploring new information - as her colleague I highly recommend her and will be referring my Alberta friends her way!
