Dr. Brookhuis’ passion for helping her patients return to their activities is rooted in her lifelong love of athletics. Born and raised in Toronto, she competed in a wide variety of competitive sports including softball and hockey. Through sports, Dr. Brookhuis developed the ability to get the most out of herself and others, and developed an appreciation for the value of continued self-improvement.
Dr. Brookhuis completed a Bachelor of Science with a specialization in Anatomy and Cell Biology at McGill University. During her time at McGill, Dr. Brookhuis competed for Team Quebec and Team Canada for softball, and her student athlete lifestyle is what introduced her to chiropractic.
Upon graduation, Dr. Brookhuis returned home to Toronto to receive her Doctor of Chiropractic, Magna Cum Laude, from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. During her internship year she had the privilege of doing internships at St. Michael’s Hospital and Sherbourne Health Centre, which allowed her to see and treat a variety of complex and fascinating cases under the supervision of both clinical sciences and sports chiropractors. Additionally, Dr. Brookhuis received her certification in contemporary medical acupuncture from McMaster University.
Dr. Brookhuis takes a comprehensive and individualized approach to all of her patients, and uses a variety of techniques, modalities, and rehabilitation to help her patients reach their goals.

I have been working with Eddy for almost a year and a half now. He has given me the tools to improve my flexibility strength and overall better health. I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve and get back on the court or what ever sport you wish to play. He knows how to make that happen!
The sessions went great. Eddy made sure that we targetted the areas that I wanted to improve on and made sure to tailer the workouts appropriately. Great trainer and defintely cares for his clients! Would definitely train with Eddy again if promotions came back!
His classes are amazing! They've motivated me to stick to the gym regularly! They're fun, challenging and overall a great time! The guidance from Eddy is great, if you have questions or aren't getting something right he's there to guide you in the right direction. The classes can be pretty intense at times but it definitely pushes you to different levels. As far as personal training he's the best trainer I've ever had. He has taught me so much, the one on one time was very prepared and also very challenging. Eddy pushed me to levels I didn't know I had and continues to do so. I always recommend him to anyone that asks me!
