Dr. Michelle Gross / B.Sc (Hons), D.C.

Dr. Michelle gross was born and raised in Kitchener Ontario. She attended St. Mary’s High School, then went on to the University of Waterloo where she received her Bachelor of Science undergrad degree in Health Studies. As an active participant in a variety of sports throughout grade school, high school and university (swimming, diving, gymnastics, cheerleading, cross country running, cross country skiing, etc.), she experienced her share of injuries.

Her first experience with Chiropractic happened as a result of one of these injuries. After a serious fall causing an injury to her neck, she started seeking treatment from Dr. Harold Paisley in Waterloo. The treatments provided so much relief that it piqued her interest in what chiropractic was all about, so she began to do a bit of research to learn more. It was Dr. Paisley who suggested she consider applying to chiropractic college.

Dr. Gross had always been interested in sciences, and from a very young age, knew she wanted a career in health care. Research about the chiropractic profession, coupled with her own very positive experience with chiropractic, made the decision an easy one. Dr. Gross began her studies at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto in 1995. It was not long after that she met her future husband and business partner, Dr. Murray Townsend, who was completing his final year at chiropractic college at the time.

Four years later was a busy time, with graduation from chiropractic college, the purchase of a practice in Mount Forest and Arthur, and a wedding, all taking place within five months! Drs. Gross and Townsend have been happily married and have very comfortably settled into life in Mount Forest over the past number of years. They are now enjoying a very supportive community, great relationships with many other health professionals in the area, and are blessed to be raising two wonderful boys. These days, when she is not practicing chiropractic or taking care of her two boys, Dr. Gross is often teaching classes and running workshops on essential oils, as well as teaching and mentoring others in building essential oil businesses of their own.
