Dr. Krista Borrowman graduated from Queen’s University in 1997 with a degree in Kinesiology and a degree in Biology. Knowing she wanted to be part of the health field and aiming for some flexibility in a career with raising a family, she went on to graduate from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2001.
Looking to escape the congestion of Toronto, Dr. Borrowman and her husband moved to Halifax and established Kingswood Chiropractic Health Centre in November of 2002.

Andrea began practicing massage in 1995 after receiving certification in Massage and Holistic Bodywork in Bristol, England. After returning to Canada, she studied at the Sutherland Chan School and Teaching Clinic in Toronto to complete the requirements for registration as an RMT in Ontario. In 2011, she returned to her native Halifax to build her practice.
Over her 17 years as a massage practitioner, Andrea has developed a proprietary style, while still remaining true to her original holistic training. A special interest in postural alignment and body mechanics drives the focus of Andrea’s treatments as she endeavours to “find the cause, treat the cause”. Her techniques range from the very deep, to the very subtle as she employs both direct deep tissue massage and indirect neuromuscular techniques to support the body in restoring balance; each treatment being unique to the patient and his/her needs and comfort.
Andrea’s additional training includes Cranial Sacral Therapy, Reiki, Muscle Energy Techniques, Joint Mobilization, Perinatal Care. She has been an instructor at both the Sutherland Chan School and Teaching Clinic in Toronto, and the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in Halifax.
Ariana graduated in May 2017 from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy, and has been enjoying working with everyone at KCHC ever since. Prior to becoming an RMT, Ariana taught yoga, studied energy work, and had her own Thai Yoga Massage Practice. She continues to expand on her education and skills, and creates a unique, effective and enjoyable experience for each of her clients. When not working, Ariana is happiest outside playing with her son and their animals.
