Dr. Adonis Makris attended the University of Victoria where he achieved a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology in 1993. In 1998, he became a Doctor of Chiropractic with accreditation from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto.
He has studied a mix of modern and ancient healing arts that influence his practice. Adonis is a Master in Medical Qigong, awarded from the International Institute of Medical Qigong, and a Reiki Master. He has certifications as a Biosignature Level 2 Practitioner from Poliquin Group Institute; a CHEK Holistic Level 2 Practitioner and CHEK Exercise Practitioner Level 1 from the CHEK Institute; an Eden Energy Practitioner from the Donna Eden School; and for osteopathic medicine from the Barral Institute. Through decades of study and practice he has developed a healing system called “The Body Motion Functional System”, which is based on the fact that motion is energy and energy has the potential to heal. Within this system he uses a variety of energy-medicine healing techniques that help the body vibrate to its highest potential and regain depleted energy to restore balance.
Currently, Adonis is finishing Post-Graduate studies at the Functional Medicine University in the United States. His ongoing studies include herbal medicine, crystal healing practices, shamanism, and other types of medicine. His practice focuses on helping people with many types of health issues, including body aches and pains; orthopedic disabilities; digestive problems; all forms of cancer; autoimmune diseases; chronic conditions such as fatigue and fibromyalgia; weight loss or weight gain issues; hormonal imbalances and diseases; addictions; emotional problems such as anxiety and stress; and infertility.
The Body Motion Functional System is an array of healing techniques that help the body regain balanced function. It involves the hands-on re-education of muscles and fascia—a technique that removes scar tissue, muscular imbalances, and visceral organ restrictions. Adonis approaches his patients in a holistic manner to teach people the importance of respecting food as healing medicine and to use natural remedies for many disease conditions. Through his instruction and practice he teaches that all diseases have an emotional connection.
