Get to know Us


Dayna's headshotDayna Holtom has been around chiropractors since she was very young. In fact, she was just a few hours old when she had her first adjustment. It was only natural that she decided to enter the field of natural health care and chose to study massage therapy at Algonquin College, where she graduated in 2010.

Born and raised in Dunrobin, a small town on the Ottawa River, Dayna has always loved outdoor activities, like boating in the summer and ski-dooing in the winter. She also likes Hip-Hop and was a competitive dancer for several years. Dayna’s travels have taken her across Canada, throughout the British Isles, and as far away as Bali.

Dayna started her massage therapy career at a downtown day spa where she mastered the balance between relaxation and therapeutic massage. After seeing more than 600 clients in the spa environment, she decided to join us at Marketplace Chiropractic because she loves witnessing the immediate benefits clients experience with massage therapy in conjunction with chiropractic.

In 2018 Dayna welcomed her son Grayson into the world. She absolutely loves being a mother, massaging him after his baths, and looks forward to raising him in Barrhaven.

Marla headshotMarla is a thriving Ottawan since moving here from Toronto in 2012. Her inspiration to become a massage therapist in 2000 came from using her hands to comfort her grandparents in their later years.

She has worked as a massage therapist with physiatrists and pain management physicians, with physiotherapists as well as with her brother in his chiropractic clinic. She recognizes therefore, the great fit that massage therapy makes for safe and effective care working alongside Drs. Mike and Nancy.

Marla has worked with a rich array of clients from young students to long-time office workers, from amateur athletes to physically challenged people, and from new moms to active grandparents.

With Marla’s depth and experience, you are in ‘good hands’. Introduce her to your achy muscles and joints and she will work with your preferences, in a safe and quiet space, to achieve optimal healing.

Marla enjoys fine film, art and garden projects, trying new recipes and exploring nature.
