Book online

Treatment through movement and massage

Active release technique, or ART is a movement-based massage that treats muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. It’s particularly effective for overuse injuries, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, sciatica, plantar fasciitis and tennis elbow.

Our trained physiotherapists and chiropractors will work with you to improve physical performance and assist with recovery from pain and injury.

Hands-on treatment involves stretching or tensioning of injured or overworked tissue in very specific movement patterns to restore mobility, improve oxygenation, and help with healing.

Cost and coverage

Whether you are receiving physiotherapy, chiropractic service, massage therapy, occupational therapy or other types of rehabilitation services, most health insurance providers reimburse all or a portion of the fees.

Our clinic staff can help confirm your health insurance coverage. Your treatment may be partially or fully covered if you have extended health benefits, a worker’s compensation claim, or were injured in a motor vehicle accident.
