Meet the Team

Dr. Al Russell, DC

Hi! I’m Allan Russell. I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1995 after receiving a bachelor’s degree in physical education from the University of Calgary. I qualified as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner in 1999. I enjoy working with families, especially children.

I grew up in Calgary and have been married to my wife Kelly since 2000. We have four children—Madison, Ty, Payton and Brayden—who are our focus. Chiropractic is a part of our family’s active lifestyle. Along with all the kids’ activities, I enjoy playing hockey in the winter and golf in the summer.

Dr. David Gallant, DC


Hi. I’m David Gallant. I graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2016 after receiving a Bachelor of Art Degree from the University of New Brunswick. I have been a chiropractic patient all my life, and I enjoy helping people, which led me to become a chiropractor. 

I am from Calgary, but my father’s career in the military took us all over the world. I moved back to Calgary with my girlfriend in 2017. We enjoy hiking in the mountains with our dog.

I am happy to have found a home at Temple Chiropractic and look forward to serving our community.


Hi, my name is Jo. I’ve lived in Calgary for the majority of my life. I am a mom of 2 kids, Michael and Ellie. They are my world.

I used to be a patient of Temple Crossing Chiropractic Clinic years ago, and I decided this was a work environment I wanted to be a part of. I am pleased to be a part of the team here, helping our patients with their chiropractic care.


Hi My name is Gaelan. I've lived near Calgary my whole life.

I've been part of the team at Temple since 2019. If you follow us on Instagram and Facebook you'll be familiar with my face from our weekday workouts. I love working at the clinic and getting to know and help our patients. If this is your first time coming to see us, welcome! We can't wait to help you.


Hello, my name is Christine. I joined the team at Temple Chiropractic in 2020. In my time away from the clinic my family and I spend our time camping and playing baseball. I am looking forward to getting to know all our patients new and old.

pooja, RMT

Hi, my name is Pooja Jindal. I graduated from Makami College and completed 3000hrs with honors. I found it remarkable that by having a good understanding of muscles and related body systems you can relieve the pain of clients and improve their quality of life. I completed my RMT with 100% dedication and now it is my mission to put a smile on my clients face and alleviate their pain. I provide therapeutic massage, foot reflexology, trigger point therapy, cupping, hot stone, and relaxation massage therapy. I am also continuously updating my training and learning new skills in this field. In 2016, I joined the great team of Temple Crossing Chiropractic. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family.

Sam, RMT

Hi, my name is Samantha. I find the body a fascinating thing to learn about. I am a graduate from CDI College and completed my 2,400-hour requirement, at which point I started at Temple in 2014. I am also a member of the Remedial Massage Therapist Association. I have 5 adorable nephews that mean the world to me. I enjoy playing sports, singing, drawing and being outdoors. Temple Crossing is a great place to put my learning to good use by helping our patients.

Trang, RMT 

Hi. My name is Trang. I have been a Registered Massage Therapist for over 7 years and am fully certified with my 2,200-hour course. I am a medium pressure therapeutic therapist who specializes in trigger point therapy and stretches in my treatments. If interested, ask me about hot and cold stone therapy. Temple Crossing is my new home and I love being part of the team.

P.S. I love chocolate, cookies and all kinds of sweets.

Dr. Shobna Bali, DTCM, RAc

Hi, I’m Shobna Bali. I am a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine and a Registered Acupuncturist. I earned my master's degree in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from the Canadian Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The 4-year curriculum at this school consists of over 4,200 hours of training in acupuncture, herbal medicine, practical clinical experience, energetic exercise and adjunct therapies which include: tui na (Chinese massage), Eastern nutrition, moxibustion, cupping, electric stimulation, gua sha, and auriculotherapy.

I specialize in sports medicine acupuncture (IMS). I am very passionate about healing through the connection between body, soul and mind, and I also take pride in helping patients to cope with stress and pain management. I suffered through a frozen shoulder with tension headaches for 2 years, which doctors had no solution for, and then I decided to take the natural healing way. I meditate, do yoga and breathing exercises every day, and also receive regular acupuncture treatments to balance the body with qi and blood. Chiropractic and acupuncture make a great team for your health.

Why Us?

We’re a community-based practice with 30 years of experience.
