Meet The Team
Zach Still, D.C.
Dr Zach Still, DC, (he/him) grew up in Sparwood, BC - a small coal mining town along the BC/Alberta border. He is excited to be living and working in the Calgary area. Zach knew for many years that he wanted a career working with people. Then, in his early 20s he was invited by a friend to see a chiropractor and it changed his life in notable, lasting, and meaningful ways.
He quickly realized that he wanted to be part of that - helping people live a fuller, more comfortable life and helping them become their best selves.
Zach chose to study at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic in Auckland, NZ. He loved it there, and given the chance he'll talk your ear off about it.
When he isn’t working, you can find him spending quality time with his wife and two kids. They love swimming, biking, playing outside and watching movies together.
Dr. Zach feels that every person under his care is important and he works with them to achieve their health goals and unlock their optimal health. His clients consistently feel safe, informed, heard, and cared for.
Gord Schyf, D.C.
Dr. Gord was born in Calgary, but was raised in Uxbridge, Ontario neighbouring Port Perry, the birthplace of the Founder of Chiropractic. Growing up he spent much of his time playing soccer, tennis, golf, indoor climbing and curling. Dr. Gord knowing he wanted to provide service by caring for the health and well-being of others pursued the Health Sciences and attended Trent University for 5 years earning him an honours degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
During his time at Trent University he took up running, weight lifting and snowboarding.
Dr. Gord’s desire to learn new things brought him to a class that taught him about stress, how the human body adapts to short and long term stressors and the health implications of chronic stress in a world where we are exposed to hundreds of different stressors daily. This led him to pursue a health care modality that he felt would be best to help and serve others more holistically. This is what led Dr. Gord to discover chiropractic care and ignited his passion to learn more about the benefits it provides.
Dr. Gord immediately sought out a chiropractor who helped him manage an old snowboarding injury and helped him improve his performance in the gym and while running. He was then offered the opportunity to study chiropractic in Auckland, New Zealand at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic. He spent 4 years challenging himself by studying many chiropractic techniques including Diversified, Gonstead, Activator, Upper Cervical Specific, SOT and Network Spinal before earning his Bachelor of Chiropractic degree and bringing it home with him to Canada to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.
Moving back to the Calgary area, Dr. Gord is very excited to practice at Tuscany Chiropractic & Massage! He is eager to deliver patient centred, holistic chiropractic care and serve the Tuscany Community. He looks forward to seeing new patients at the clinic while continuing to dedicate himself to learning and growing in his field.
At present, Dr. Gord loves to stay active and aims to begin to settle down and raise a family with his partner. You may find Dr. Gord and her hiking the mountains on the weekends. He also enjoys running, cycling, swimming, going to the gym, playing tennis, golfing, canoeing, curling, snowboarding and camping when he can. He is excited to be back in Canada and learning how he may best serve you at Tuscany Chiropractic & Massage!
