Body, Mind & Spirit: Calgary Somatic & Manual Therapy – Dr. Tanya Rampersad, ND
Issues run deep
Until you know who you truly are, your deepest values and your inherent worth and beauty, healing is not complete.
Trauma doesn’t have to be a major life-changing event, although it certainly can be. Sometimes it’s small things: toxins, toxic messages, incorrect interpretations repeated over time that prevent us from being as bright and calmly energized as we actually can be.
These traumas are intruders in our divinely-sanctioned lives. When we don’t feel right or well or content, we often interpret this imbalance as a defect in ourselves or in others. These conclusions then assimilate into our life and we get more of the same. These conclusions are never based on a whole view (who has a whole view?) and mislead us into believing that we are powerless, unsupported, don’t belong, are not worthy or are not good enough just as we are.
Babies and children need supportive, loving environments to grow into mentally and physically healthy adults. Sadly, this ideal environment is rare. And often by the time people reach their 40’s and 50’s the burden of living in an unhealthy culture has become unbearable. This is our time of transition and healthy transitions require a stable footing.
Luckily, humans and their bodies are resilient. We can recover from all sorts of trauma, inadequacies and assaults. And there are ways to return to yourself; I offer my version, the pathway that I have taken and am still taking.
You are entitled to support, to unconditional love and to knowing your worth as a unique awareness that has never existed before and will never exist again. And you deserve this pathway into understanding your true nature.
You are not alone, you belong here, you are loved and you deserve to live the life you were meant for.
Dr. Tanya Rampersad
Naturopathic Doctor, Manual Therapist & Minimalist
I have a unique skill set acquired simply by doing what I love. My goal is to dig out the roots of disharmony, so I aim deep. My skills all relate to encouraging profound shifts with minimum intervention: manual therapy, homeopathy, counseling, herbal medicine and self-care.
I do this by accessing the subconscious and unconscious intelligence you have within you. Go to the Process page to find out more.
One of my deeply held beliefs is that anything is possible so I will never claim to have all or the only answer for you. If you are my client, you are encouraged to investigate whatever you find interesting and useful. This means that I will support your initiative and intuition and I will listen to and honour your insights. You are the ultimate authority on yourself and truly, you have within yourself all the answers. I just help you find those answers.
My other deeply held belief is that it is the human spirit or soul that ultimately heals but that sometimes its light is dampened, unable to express itself, sometimes due to factors that are correctable.
When it comes to activating profound shifts – less is more. This is the most respectful way to approach another spiritual being who ultimately knows how to find their own way.

Private sessions are available for individuals who live in or frequent Calgary or who are willing to do most of the work virtually (out of town).
In person visits allow me gently manoeuvre tissues and organs to create better alignment and release emotional conflict embedded in the cellular matrix. This work is not always necessary, however.
If you do not live in or around Calgary, I will attempt to source somebody who can perform this type manual work for you if that seems appropriate.
A private session is a suitable starting point in order to provide a framework or map for your journey
This six-week program guides you through developing greater body awareness, intuition and learning self trust. The course lays the groundwork for doing deeper work such as the group program or 1: 1 private sessions.
This self-directed, online program is suitable for individuals who feel they do not have well-developed body awareness, intuition or who have difficulty extracting insight from their situations. If you feel like you look for the approval of the others, are not in touch with your emotions or your bodily sensations, this is an excellent place to start.
Becoming Fearless, becoming yourself
This series starts clearing conditioning, painful patterns and everything else that is not your true self and helps you learn who and what you really are. You will be supported throughout by Tanya and a community of incredible individuals with similar challenges.
The group program is suitable for individuals who have learned or who are learning to tune into the information from their bodies. Parts of the program may be triggering and you are encouraged to work with a counsellor or other therapist if that is appropriate.
This program would not be suitable for individuals suffering from acute mental illness or acute trauma as parts of the program may trigger increased discomfort.
About the Work
I help women release and remove whatever is preventing them from leading a full, meaningful life of integrity. This is often biochemical and physiological when dealing with the physical body and can also go back to previous generations of trauma.
A comprehensive intake will provide insight. When conducted in-person, I utilize a thorough medical exam that has been geared toward assessing the functioning of the organs and glands.
When performed virtually, I rely on the history, my intuition and testing (optional).
I find things that are often missed by standard blood work and even imaging.
It might take some time for you to get back on track.
I aim to be minimal and specific with medicines or treatments, getting underneath the symptoms, usually working with one system at a time.
We will work through:
- Toxins and causes of inflammation
- Mental habits
- Inherited trauma
- Emotional content held in the tissue
This transition is an opportunity for positive , expansive change.
I want you to go farther. I want you to find your north star, your internal compass, your guiding light. After going through this process, I want you to go out and change your world.
Maintenance and opportunities for continued growth will be available after your success.
