We tip our holistic hats to psychiatrist Mark Gilbert MD, Director of The Integrated Pain Treatment Center and the Mind-Body Skills Program of Toronto. He used his wealth of experience in the field of mind-body medicine (having trained both at Harvard''s Deaconess Hospital Mind-Body Program, and at the Center for Mind-Body Medicine in Washington, D.C.) to create this extraordinary clinic, where the staff works with chronic pain, traumatic stress, and life-threatening and chronic illnesses. The IPTC offers physiotherapy, massage therapy, Pilates, meditation, imagery, movement therapy, kinesthesiology, naturopathy, nutritional therapy, biofeedback and group therapy, to name some of the primary modalities.

As a lecturer at the University of Toronto, Dr. Gilbert taught the Family Therapy program at the Hospital for Sick Children for almost a decade, taking a special interest in consultation to families affected by physical illness, and contributing to research on familial hyperlipidemia. After being a consultant lecturer to the Toronto Western Hospital and C.M. Hincks Treatment Centre, Dr. Gilbert opened his own multidisciplinary clinic for Work-Related Musculoskeletal Disorders and Chronic Pain. In 1999, he established a Mind-Body Program for a large health care center in downtown Toronto, and in May 2000 opened the Integrated Pain Treatment Center. He lectures and is interviewed frequently by the Canadian media.
