We offer longer assessment times, 1 on 1 treatment throughout the entirety of the booked session, and a focus on evidence-based therapy. So if you’re tired of minimal face-to-face time with your physio, your physio bouncing between multiple clients, or laying on a bed with passive modalities (heat, ice, ultrasound, etc) being used for a majority of your treatment, come give us a shot!

Sara always had an interest in nutrition and fitness, but didn’t always approach it in a healthy way. Our relationship with food can be complex, and that combined with all the contradictory information on the internet, can make it hard to find something that works for you. From over-restriction to bingeing, Sara has had her fair share of trials and tribulations when it comes to food, and as a result is now passionate about helping you find a healthy balance too.
We now know that food doesn’t only impact our weight, it also has an effect on our mood, risk of disease, physical performance, and even our genetics. This is why what we choose to feed our bodies is so important - its the basis of everything we do, think, and feel.
