Move Feel & Be Well by Integrating Yoga Therapy and Physiotherapy

**COVID-19 Response**

Given the current situation and the recommendations from Public Health authorities to optimize social distancing, I have decided to close the clinic and cancel all in-home visits for the time being.  ONLINE VIDEO appointments are available.
As the situation evolves, you can be assured that I will communicate BeWell Physiotherapy’s evolving responses through emails, and on the website.

Move • Feel • Be Well

By blending the science of Physiotherapy with the holistic wisdom of Yoga, you will experience a novel therapeutic approach where the intention is to guide you towards treating and healing yourself with increased awareness of your own movement. You will be engaged and fascinated by the path of your healing when the focus of therapy is broadened to acknowledge how your social, cognitive, emotional, and physical states impact how you move and feel.

Physiotherapy services are covered by most extended health care plans. You will receive a receipt to submit for reimbursement. No doctors referral is required to access physiotherapy. Some extended health plans however may require a doctor’s referral for reimbursement.

Our unique approach

What to expect from Physiotherapy at BeWell…

The Yoga-Physiotherapy integrated approach is to guide you towards treating and healing yourself with increased awareness of your own movement.

All sessions are 1 hour and will include movement and conversation.

STEP 1

Getting to know you

You will have the opportunity to share your story and consider what your desired outcomes are. How can the blend of yoga and physiotherapy best support you? How would you like to feel?….What would you like to be able to do? Who would you like to be as a result of this work?

STEP 2

Creating your customized movement program

During each session you will move through a series of exercises. With Kirsten as your guide, you will explore each exercise, moving mindfully, and discussing your experience. This exploration will lead to an understanding of which movements support your desired outcomes – ultimately leading to your customized movement program.

STEP 3

Reflect. Refine. Re-train

In between sessions, you practice your customized movement program and reflect on your experience so you can report back to Kirsten at your next session. With the information you have gathered, Kirsten will support you to refine and re-train your movements, guiding you along your healing path towards your desired outcomes.

Stop looking for the fix

I stopped searching for a diagnosis and my skill as a Physiotherapist sky-rocketed!   It wasn’t that long ago that I was considering bailing out as a Physiotherapist completely. Each interaction with a patient left me feeling like there needed to be more. I felt...

Unmet expectations can lead to upset….

In our relationships with others I find it to be true that the cause of upset is often unmet expectations AND those expectations likely were not communicated. Over the holidays I experienced a wonderfully good example of this. My 8 year old daughter, Cora, in her...
