Founded in 2002 by Tim Eifert and Jaime VanDenBrock, Priority Massage and Health brings a team of London’s brightest health care professionals under one roof.  

It’s a given that each member of our team is accredited in his, or her, respective field, but our staff brings more to the table than just a certificate or degree. From competitive athletic training to post-graduate education in complementary fields, our breadth of experience has led us to take a holistic approach to healthcare.

Jaime VanDenBrock - Registered Massage Therapist, Clinic Owner

Jaime is a trauma-informed registered massage therapist offering touch therapy for people who are looking for support to heal from the effects of trauma. The practice of settling and regulating the nervous system, which she believes is at the root of many people’s sufferings, is the primary focus of Jaime’s treatments.

Jaime has over 2 decades of experience in the field of body-mind healing. She has been a registered massage therapist since 2000. Soon after, a love of learning and personal evolution led Jaime to become qualified as a yoga teacher (with a particular interest in yoga Nidra), reiki practitioner and craniosacral therapist.

In 2019, after recognizing that there was a missing piece in what she could offer her clients in their healing process, Jaime enrolled in the 3 year Somatic Experiencing trauma training.

Somatic Experiencing focuses on nervous system regulation and utilizes body awareness as the vehicle for healing. For more information please visit:

In 2023, Jaime chose to transition her professional focus as an RMT to trauma-informed touch therapy, supporting the needs of all people in their healing process. Call 519-642-7469 or email with questions and to book.

Dr. Richard Vuksinic, ND

Dr. Vuksinic was influenced by the rhythms of a holistic lifestyle at an early age. After graduating with an honours B.A. from McMaster University in 1999, Dr. Vuksinic traveled extensively throughout North America, Europe, Asia and Central America. These travels were a self-directed education in the healing practices and philosophies of various traditional cultures. His travels ignited a passion to blend, in his own healing practice, the wisdom of traditional medicine with the scientific foundation of western medicine. In 2005, this led Dr. V to the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario, where he graduated as a doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. As part of a 4-year program at CCNM he completed a 1-year internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic in Toronto. He also gained inspiration in working with Natural Doctors International, an NGO that brings free Naturopathic health care to under-served communities in Nicaragua (2008 & 2009).

In practice, he employs all of the core naturopathic modalities (Acupuncture, Herbal and Homeopathic medicine, nutritional and lifestyle counseling) along with Somatic Experiencing to address the full dynamic of individualized health care: the mental, emotional and physical.

Dr. Vuksinic is a registered naturopathic doctor in good standing with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors.

A Personal Note From Richard:

I enjoy a family practice, where I apply the tools of naturopathy from both an evidenced based and bio-energetic perspective. My goal in applying the art and practice of naturopathy to the treatment of the individual, is to blend evidence and intuition, bio-chemistry and bio-energetics, Reason and Nature. I aim to bring a balanced approach to my practise and to meet the needs of my patients. This means working with you and all of your health care providers.

Outside of my clinical practice, I am a passionate teacher and lecturer. Since moving to London in 2009, I have hosted a number of workshops and lectures pertaining to naturopathic healthcare and plant medicines. Apart from my work as an ND I am also inspired by travel, permaculture principles, deep nature connection, hockey and my family.
