Mark Bodnar, BA(Hons), R.Ac., CAT(C)

I am the founder and director of Vancouver Island Integrative Medicine. I work extensively with Migraine sufferers and have been helping people out of pain for over 15 years. With my unique background in Athletic Therapy, Nutrition, and Functional Medicine I have a wealth of knowledge and experience with chronic pain of all kinds but I commonly see patients with back pain, neck pain, and tension headaches in addition to migraines. By incorporating a unique approach that targets pain and inflammation, I often see results in a very short time.

My journey began with always being sick as child and sustaining many sports injuries during my youth. This eventually developed into many other health problems which frequently led me to the doctor’s office. These experiences motivated me to study Kinesiology which gave me a better understanding of the body, and from there I became an Athletic Therapist because I wanted to help others get out of pain. Meanwhile my health problems, mainly migraines at that time, were continually increasing with no answers from medical doctors, so I started to search for different types of therapies and went on I went on to study nutrition and Functional Medicine because it really focuses on the person, not the disease and looks to identify the root causes that are affecting your health.

Are you tired of being told that your pain is “normal” or that “nothing else can help”? I would love the opportunity to discuss how I might be able to help you. Please contact me for a free consultation so we can discuss your health.
