Dr. Aaron, or Dr. D, as many patients call him, grew up in Morinville, AB, a town approximately 20 minutes north of Edmonton. Dr. Aaron did his undergraduate education at the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Sciences & Psychology. He completed his Doctor of Chiropractic at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dr. Aaron is trained in various styles of chiropractic but focuses primarily with a more gentle technique suitable for everyone, from newborns to the elderly. When Dr. Aaron is not in the office, he is very active outdoors. He enjoys hunting, fishing, quadding, boating, curling & spending time with his wife & dogs.
Megs, RMT, grew up in Spruce View, and now lives in the Caroline area. She joined our team in June 2018 upon her graduation with 2200 hours from the Northern Institute of Massage Therapy. She currently specializes in therapeutic, relaxation, cupping, and Swedish massage.

Megs RMT is in Caroline Tuesday 8:45am – 7:45pm and Wednesday 4pm – 8:30pm
Carilee Pearse is a local gal raised in the area of her family and their homestead land. She has a strong connection to the area and is what she would call pleasantly "herd bound" to the area with her husband and extended family.
Carilee is a caring and determined advocate for your body to feel well so that you can 'Live Life to the Full'. She is certified in a type of Muscle Release and Body Alignment Therapy, Neuromuscular & Body Alignment Therapy, using a historical technique developed by an Australian Osteopath therapist named Tom Bowen, hence, Bowen Therapy.
It was developed to support the body in the working together of muscles, tendons, viscera and structure by stimulation of nerves and fascia to engage the Central, Peripheral, Autonomic Nervous System. More commonly known as the "Fight flight, or Rest Digest". This system is key for your body to be able to heal and feel well.
It consists of small precise movements over specific muscles and tendons throughout the body, primarily where nerve bundles are most accessible. It triggers the body to release and heal by going through the autonomic nervous system and putting the body into a relaxed / "sleepy feel" state - as her clients say.
This is a comfortable therapy, in that it is done with athletic or loose fitted maneuverable clothing, which allows the client to feel comfortable and relaxed while the therapist is at work.
As of May 2022, Carilee says she has been blessed to start up her practice in the Caroline community Hub.
If you are interested in the service Carilee offers, please find her business on Facebook, or contact the Hub for her contact info.
Paige Clowes is the face behind Heart & Sole Foot Care. She says that it has been such a joy to serve the community of Caroline. Paige grew up in rural Saskatchewan and really appreciates small towns and the community that comes with it. When she is not caring for your feet she enjoys snowmobiling in the mountains and spending time with family and friends. Paige would like to thank everyone for their support!

The June 2022 Caroline Chamber Business of the month has been awarded to Ram River Tours.   We wish to thank the Caroline Chamber of Commerce for the recognition of Business of the Month. 

 

Our Outfitting business began in 1988 when a deal was struck with Janet Trimble and Trimble Outfitters. Roy and Janet established their business in 1965 and became famous in the Sheep hunting world. Roy became ill with Lou  Gherrig disease and eventually left us way too young. Janet carried on, did a very great job that we continued. 

 

In 1994 we struck another deal with Don Sands and Charlie Miller who had taken over the Sammy Sands Outfit. They operated just north of us in the Whiterabbit unit. They were good neighbors and also had a great reputation in the Sheep hunting world. 

 

With the Sammy Sands Outfit not only came the sheep hunting but also a Trail Riding business in a Class 1 area.  We no longer take Sheep hunters; however, Sharmane believes in supporting our youth.  She keeps very busy at our North Ram Basecamp from Spring  through Fall accommodating riders, Kid Camps and sharing our cabins year round, with guests from everywhere. Our goal is to provide a western outfitter style experience enjoying the cozy wood stove and campfire cooking.  Some of the trails we ride have been around for a very long time.  

 

David Thompson, in his search for the Northwest Passage explored and travelled up the North Ram Valley in about 1705 in search of an easy route through the Rockies to the Pacific. Well it was a failure however he created some very interesting history that we continue to share. 

 

We have a great Crew, a great string of horses and the Western Heritage will live on.  Sharmane  continues to raise a very popular line of  Australian Shepard stock dogs and also enjoys sharing her great voice singing at many weddings and funerals throughout the year.  Lorne is very busy working with government and the University working on cougar research projects and taking hunters in the winter. He also keeps active on many committees helping to keep our West Country healthy and an awesome tourist destination.

Daughters Lyndsay, Amy and Josey all remain very active in helping keeping this western way of life alive and healthy.
