PAMELA KLOMBIES, BSc PT
With Direct Access in Alberta, you do not need to wait for a doctor’s referral before seeing a physiotherapist.
Pamela graduated from the University of Saskatchewan: School of Physical Therapy in 1995. She came to Calgary with her young family in 1997 and has enjoyed working for various sports medicine clinics in the city and Airdrie until opening her very own centralized office at the Calgary WOW Centre.
At the age of 16, Pamela observed a tv commercial with a woman teaching a young man who was learning how to walk again in the parallel bars. She knew without a doubt that she wanted to be a physiotherapist when she grew up. Over the course of her schooling and career she has experienced many pitfalls that hindered the realization of her vision and, as we all have all come to realize, that life has its “light teachers” and its “dark teachers“. At 35 she was paralyzed in both legs from a ruptured disc and her surgeon was not able to predict a positive outcome. She persevered with the tireless help of her close family and her awesome rehabilitation team, and she feels her struggles made her stronger and more resilient and hopefully, a better therapist.
Tara Ouellette, RMT
Tara Ouellette was born and raised in Calgary, where her healing practice started at an early age. A
childhood injury required Tara to seek out Massage Therapy and other physical therapy to manage pain
and recover. Her quest to help heal herself was a large part of her desire to help others.
Tara graduated from The Northwestern School of Massage Therapy in 1994 and started her Craniosacral
Therapy training in 2003. Craniosacral Therapy became one of her favourite modalities and she has been
both a student, teaching assistant, collaborator, and mentor to other therapists.
The arrival of her two daughters early in her career helped her to focus her practice on pediatric care.
Tara has observed that babies and expectant moms are particularly receptive to the benefits of
CranioSacral Therapy, and she often works with babies before and after their birth. Tara also frequently
collaborates with Midwives and other prenatal care specialists as part of her work.
As Tara’s practice has evolved, she has worked with people experiencing a variety of physical, spiritual,
and emotional trauma. This mind, body, and spirit work has allowed her natural gifts of intuition and
sensitivity to energy to be integrated into her healing practice. One of the most rewarding parts of her
work is teaching her clients about their own bodies’ wisdom and how to listen to it.
When she’s not at work, Tara channels her creativity by spending time tending her garden and when the
inevitable winter comes she switches gears to make pottery.
