“I became a naturopathic physician because as an athlete, I always knew there was more that could be done to get me back in the game and playing at my best. I wanted to become the doctor that I wish I had in my corner for all of those years.” 

  • Dr. Garrett Bramall, ND

 

Dr. Bramall has been an athlete all of his life. He played for the Junior A burnaby lakers and was a core member on the St. Francis Xavier X-men lacrosse teams while completing his undergraduate degree. He has a passion for Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and  mixed martial arts which started at a young age and continues to grow today. Unfortunately, chronic low back pain held him back for years until he stepped foot in a Naturopathic doctor’s office. After experiencing a profound response to treatment, Garrett set his sights on learning everything that he could about the profession and has since become a naturopathic physician himself. 

Dr. Bramall prides himself in educating his patients about their bodies and empowering them to play a leading role in their own healing process. He works with disciplined, driven professionals and athletes who are tired, in pain and feeling rundown. His mission with each client is to ease their pain, to maximize their performance, their productivity and unlock their fullest potential. This means that at the end of a work day they have the energy necessary to play with their kids, to be present for their loved ones and strive to improve themselves every single day. He emphasizes the importance of establishing a solid foundation while also applying leading edge, evidence based therapeutic approaches to get you results fast. 

He currently practices full time at Evoke Integrative Medicine in downtown Vancouver and holds weekend appointments at Prohealthsys clinic in New Westminster BC. He is also a faculty member of Vancouver Career College’s registered massage therapy program. He has acted as an editor for several books in the realm of anatomy and sports medicine published by Dr. Nikita Vizniak and co-authored clinical reference texts in both Kinesiology and Nutrition so far.
