Enhanced Wellness Studio strives to provide the safest, most effective and efficient research informed care.

Through the highest integrity, standards, values, and ethical discipline, we strive to become the preferred wellness clinic for both patients and practitioners alike.

We strive to give every patient the experience that the entire clinic team truly cares about and works towards finding customized solutions. At Enhanced Wellness Studio “Health” and “Wellness” are defined based on the patient’s needs, definitions, expectations, values and beliefs.

The clinic expression is based partly on the Scandinavian culture which calls for timeless modern designs and solutions uniquely merged with old traditions of togetherness, inclusivity and homey comfort – all in support of an atmosphere of thriving beyond surviving.


Enhanced Wellness Studio acknowledges the land we are on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Mississauga, the Anishinabewaki, the Attiwonderonk, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Waterloo is covered by the Haldimand Treaty and Treaty 3, 1972.


The idea and concept of Enhanced Wellness Studio have been brewing for many years, but it took a sudden decision by a large corporate company to make it all a reality. Dr. Kenneth Stelsoe received only a few weeks of notice that his practice no longer had a home to operate out of. The decision was to either work for another clinic in the area or to rush the opening of his clinic. This was the "birth" of Enhanced Wellness Studio in the early summer of 2017.

For a few months and through the finishing touches of the clinic renovations, only Dr. Kenneth and Angela were seeing patients. Before the end of the year, a team of 4 practitioners was working in our clinic.

Fast forward to the present time, we are now 6 practitioners covering 4 major healthcare professions; Chiropractic, Functional Medicine, Massage Therapy, and Social Work.

We strive to continue to evolve and adapt. We listen to the needs of our patients and practitioners. We remain open to suggestions and requests while reserving the right to protect our clinic culture and focus. We follow the emerging scientific evidence for best clinical practices and patient outcomes. Most importantly, we stay humble and grateful for our patients to trust us with their health and wellness needs and goals.

Candice Esposito

CFMP, ND (retired)
Functional Medicine

Dr. Candice helps high-achieving, spiritually-minded professionals, entrepreneurs and business owners overcome chronic health concerns (such as fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue syndrome) without using restrictive diets, a bag full of supplements or having to work harder.

She believes that you - the patient - are the doctor of the future, and she knows that nothing can heal your body better than it can heal itself. Candice is here to help you remove any obstacles to healing so your body can do just that.

Candice is on a mission to revolutionize how we heal. To help empower patients to take back control over their health.

To ignite a shift from patients to health creators, if that resonates with you, Candice would love to chat with you. She invites you to book a Health Insights Call to get started.

Dr. C, as her clients like to call her, has over 15 years of clinical experience in natural health care plus over 15 years of post-secondary education. She graduated as a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and is a member in good standing with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND). Candice received her Certification in the Practice of Functional Medicine (CFMP) from Functional Medicine University and the Kalish Institute of Functional Medicine.

She is also a certified Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) Practitioner trained in nervous system regulation and vagus nerve stimulation. Her approach to care is trauma-informed as she recognizes trauma as an important root cause of illness.

Candice believes in taking an integrated approach to health creation. She utilizes her experience in all the above modalities to support clients in a truly holistic way - addressing the root causes at all levels - mind, body and spirit.

She loves spending time with family, most especially her two-year-old daughter, who inspires her every day.

Dr. Kenneth Stelsoe

Chiropractic Care

Dr. Kenneth is a “new generation” style Doctor of Chiropractic using a wide range of evidence-informed therapies to the benefit of his chiropractic patients. Dr. Kenneth believes the key to optimal patient care and injury recovery is through thorough diagnosis and a comprehensive treatment plan. Not only are his treatment plans based on research and clinical experiences, but more importantly, they are based on patient preferences and individual goals.

Depending on the individual patient’s needs, Dr. Kenneth may recommend additional therapies in the form of naturopathy, massage therapy, nutritional counselling, or mental/emotional counselling. All these therapies we offer in-house. However, if a patient would benefit from therapies we do not have, we gladly refer patients to external specialists in the local community.

Apart from his primary focus to his patients, Dr. Kenneth is the clinic owner with all the administrative and management tasks that come with that. Dr. Kenneth is a member of the faculty of Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College where he teaches assessment and treatment techniques for chiropractic students. In his spare time, Dr. Kenneth spends time with his partner and son.

Erinn practices evidence-based, diversified chiropractic, pulling techniques from various styles depending on what suits the individual patient’s needs the most.
