Registered Massage Therapy (RMT)

We are pleased to offer RMT in all 3 locations.

There are tremendous benefits to be achieved through regular massage therapy treatments from a registered massage therapist. Whether your need is to have a moment of relaxation, reduce muscle tension or attain relief from chronic pain, a therapeutic massage can enhance your overall emotional and physical well-being.

Massage therapy can be an important part of your health maintenance plan by:

Reducing or eliminating pain

Improving joint mobility

Improving circulation

Improving lymphatic drainage

Reducing muscular tension

Massage therapy can be used for the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions. RMTs can work with a wide variety of patients, of all ages, in the treatment of illness, injury rehabilitation and disability.

Massage therapists today use their knowledge of physiology and anatomy to combine traditional Swedish and modern massage therapy techniques with other therapies to treat their clients. There has been a wide variety of research, published in peer reviewed journals, proving the benefits of massage therapy for various conditions.


Acupuncture and Dry Needling

Acupuncture is the stimulation, by insertion of needles, of specific points on the body which have the ability to alter various biochemical and physiological conditions. Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones. Acupuncture affects the functioning of the hormonal system, promotes a decrease in inflammation, increased circulation and relief from pain.


Our Registered Physiotherapists have successfully taken additional training in acupuncture and are rostered to perform Acupuncture with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario.

Custom Knee Bracing - Knee or Hip Surgery Delayed? We Have a Solution.

These braces are created using detailed leg measurements and a computer scanning system. Most extended health plans will cover some or all of the cost of the custom brace. However, we recommend speaking with your insurance company. If required, we can give you a written estimate to submit to your insurance company for prior approval.

Custom braces: ACL, PCL, MCL, and unloader for OA

Farrow orthotics


Our feet disperse a large amount of force while we move about our daily lives. Structural abnormalities can significantly limit our ability to participate in activities. At Physiotherapy III, we are pleased to offer custom orthotic solutions by working in conjunction with Farrow Orthotics. First we complete a thorough foot, knee, hip and gait assessment to determine if orthotics are appropriate for you; if appropriate, we make a 3D impression of both feet. The impression is created and a custom orthotic is manufactured.

Custom orthotics can be beneficial to you if you are experiencing one or more of the following conditions:

Excessive foot pronation

Adult-acquired flat feet

Foot pain and fatigue

Plantar fasciitis

Knee pain

Back pain

Leg length discrepancy

Diabetic foot neuropathy



Morton’s neuroma

Most extended health plans will cover some or all of the cost of your custom orthotics; however, it is important to inquire with your insurer. In addition, your insurance company may require a referral from a physician.

Warm Water Pool Therapy

Warm Water Pool Therapy Program

Join our registered kinesiologist for a therapeutic exercise program at the YMCA warm water pool. If you experience osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, have had recent surgery, or any recent injury that makes land exercise difficult, this individualized exercise experience may help restore flexibility, strength and general well-being. This program is often set up along with regular physio sessions to get you back to your activity sooner.

Work Station Ergonomic Evaluation

Work Station Ergonomic Evaluation

Our certified ergonomist/registered kinesiologist is trained to assess your work station and its fit with you to provide optimal comfort. Proper ergonomics is proven to reduce repetitive injuries, allow return to work more easily after an injury, and to increase workplace comfort and productivity. A comprehensive analysis of the current work station and worker, including pictures and measurements, is conducted and recommendations are made with ergonomic principles in mind. These recommendations may include work station repositioning, work station redesign, and equipment changes or additions. A formal report is developed if needed.


Persistent Pain Education Program

We offer physiotherapy education using a small-group format that will provide insight and teach you strategies to deal with your persistent/chronic pain. Our education program is based on the most current evidence-based information.

Personal Training
