Dr. Ara Elmaijian

Dr. Ara Elmaijian


Dr. Ara Elmajian, the owner of Kinetic Patterns, has practised dentistry in Vancouver, British Columbia since receiving his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Alberta in 1975. Since graduation he has studied and worked extensively in the fields of chronic illness, head, neck and face pain and temporomandibular joint dysfunction. He has also completed postgraduate work in the fields of orthodontics and prosthodontics.

Dr. Elmajian received his Certification as a Biological Dentist in October 2010. His practice consists of biological dentistry as well as the management of chronic pain and illness.

Dr. Elmajian has been an advocate for detoxification for many years and recommends and guides his patients through proper protocols suited to their needs. He has extensively studied and adopted the powerful field of homotoxicology and uses homeopathic remedies to support a person’s own healing abilities.

Dr. Elmajian has also been involved in research in the fields of myofascial and neural therapy. He was one of the first in these fields to use homeopathic remedies along with local anaesthetic for various required injections. He discovered the revolutionary technique of intraoesseous neural therapy (I.O.N.T.). This has proven to be a valuable tool in the diagnosis of jaw cavitation and in numerous other treatment applications.

Dr. Elmajian works closely with his team of biological dentists, medical and naturopathic physicians and his traditional Chinese medical practitioner to provide his clients with a complete and supportive approach to their health care concerns as well as their dental needs.

Dr. Tomah Phillips

Dr. Tomah Phillips


Dr. Tomah received his Naturopathic Doctor (ND) degree from the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, a four-year program including over 1100 patient hours. He also holds a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Physiology from McGill University.

Dr. Tomah has a passion for digestion, and believes that most disease begins in the gut. So whether you suffer from a gastrointestinal disease such as “Irritable Bowel Syndrome” (which is really just a label), or a systemic issue such as eczema, fatigue, or autoimmune disease, fixing the gut provides the foundation for good health.

Along with digestion, proper sleep is one of the most essential aspects of our health. Deep sleep is the only time the body repairs and recovers, and sleep issues are tied to almost every single chronic disease. Dr. Tomah is trained in the RightSleep® method to correct sleep issues.

Dr. Tomah also has a special interest in Men’s Health, addressing complaints “below the belt,” including prostate dysfunction (BPH, prostatitis), low libido, and male fertility.

Along with clinical practice, Dr. Tomah is an adjunct faculty member of the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, where he teaches Biomedical Sciences.
