Is my therapy session covered by insurance?

Yes, most insurance companies recognize one or more of the following professional licenses: physiotherapy, athletic therapy, and naturopathy.  All of our skilled therapists maintain one or more of the above-mentioned qualifications.

Are my strength and conditioning services covered by insurance?

Depending on the services being rendered by our staff, sessions can often be covered by Athletic therapy billing.

What kinds of clients do you do strength and conditioning for?

In the past, our strength and conditioning clientele were mainly dividing into two groups; professional athletes coming in for our global approach (biophysiological testing and monitoring, all encompassing global training) and our therapy clients sealing the deal on full biomechanical recovery from injury.  However, as time goes by a significant portion of our strength and conditioning clients are individuals who are not necessarily athletes nor recovering from an injury but who have heard about our structured, comprehensive approach to health, and want to explore beyond the boundaries of typical training.
