He attended Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C., in an honors program in kinesiology. In 1984 he moved to Toronto to begin chiropractic studies at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. While in school, he independently studied acupuncture, herbology and applied kinesiology. Dr. Schroeder moved to Thunder Bay in 1988 to start practicing chiropractic with Dr. Dan Gleeson, D.C., a diplomat in Applied Kinesiology. Dr. Schroeder has continued to further his education with training in acupuncture, homeopathy, nutrition, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation Pettibon Spinal Biomechanics and electroacuscope.

Lori Kajutis, MLT

Lori was born and raised here in Thunder Bay. She received her Medical Laboratory Technologist diploma from the Thunder Bay Institute of Medical Technology in 1990. Lori joined our team in 2005 and performs our live blood analysis, urinalysis and blood grouping. Using a fresh drop of blood from the finger, Lori uses a darkfield microscope to examine the blood while it is alive. This makes it possible to see all the living components of the blood clearly, that would normally be destroyed by staining in conventional lab tests. A video camera and monitor are set up so that the patient can view the whole process. The examination of live blood is valuable for the early detection of serious health conditions.
