A mind-body approach to physiotherapy
We provide one-on-one physiotherapy sessions in a quiet space using a mind-body approach.
We are highly trained in myofascial release and mindful movement to help you become the best version of you.
No matter how long you have had pain – months, years or decades – we can help you reduce, if not eliminate your symptoms, and get you back to doing what you love to do to.
Myofascial release is a gentle, hands on treatment that taps into your innate ability to heal. Each session we will work with you towards your goals and provide you with a self-care program to support the work we did in session.
We are a group of dedicated and passionate physiotherapists who practice within the Toronto Community Acupuncture clinic in the east end of Toronto. We are trained in a variety of treatment methods including myofasical release, women’s health, persistent pain management, pilates, and pelvic floor rehabilitation.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy is a highly specialized and evidence-based form of physiotherapy treatment. Pelvic health concerns are far too common and rarely talked about. Many men and women suffer silently without realizing that there are effective, evidence-based treatment solutions.

Since graduating, Maggie has taken extensive continuing education courses and continues to learn and integrate new forms of treatment that benefit her patients.

Our services and what’s included
Initial Pelvic Floor Assessment
In many cases, the cost of physiotherapy is covered in total, or in part, by extended health insurance providers. Patients may pay by cash, cheque or credit card for each therapy session, at the time that treatment is received. Receipts will be provided for reimbursement by extended health benefits plans. Some extended health insurance plans require a physician’s referral in order to reimburse you for physiotherapist service. We suggest you call your health insurance provider in advance to confirm your level of coverage and to determine whether or not you require a physician’s referral for reimbursement.
