Building Strong Bodies, Empowering Strong Souls:
Meet Lindsey Williams
Lindsey Williams is an osteopath specializing in functional movement, breathwork, hormone health, and nutrition. She holds a degree in Kinesiology and has been involved in health and wellness since the late 1990s.
Lindsey's journey began as a competitive swimmer. Self-described as “not a natural athlete,” training instilled in Lindsey a love for fitness and movement. She soon began coaching high performance strength training for athletes, and later, to pursue a career in outdoor education.
As an outdoor education teacher in Banff, Lindsey realized her desire to empower others to lead active lives while engaging with the outdoors. A dedicated life-long learner, she completed a Masters in Leadership, to further help her students develop their self-confidence.
When her daughter was born, Lindsey became driven to convey a healthy body image – which meant addressing her own struggles. She shifted her attention to nutrition, creating Tasty Living, a successful raw-food treat company that was sold in local cafes and health food stores. However, Lindsey’s life took a turn when she suffered a neck injury, herniating two discs.
Motivated by her own long and arduous healing process, Lindsey dove into osteopathy, graduating from the Canadian College of Osteopathy as a registered Osteopathic Manual Therapist in 2022. Her hands-on approach combines her knowledge of the human body, passion for wellness, and commitment to empowerment through sustainable and holistic approaches.
Connecting with clients and meeting them where they are with authentic, nurturing support is Lindsey’s ultimate goal. Whether a seasoned athlete or exploring movement for the first time, Lindsey encourages individuals to develop a healthy body image and balance their hormones while establishing sustainable wellness practices that align with their unique needs.
Lindsey is excited to continue making a positive impact in her community with treatment at Canmore Osteopathy, and through her online community with the Aligned Wellness Collective.
