Our Physiotherapy Team Supports the Community of North Vancouver

Grouse Mountain

“There is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving.” Henry Drummond, Canadian poet 1851-1860

Since part of our commitment to the community is giving back, one of our goals is to provide more information to the community about the many ways we benefit North Vancouver in particular and Vancouver in general. We have a fantastic new location at 340 Brooksbank Ave where we are offering a dedicated gym space, sound-shielded massage rooms and a more easily accesible location across from Park and Tilford mall.

Below are some of the recent public events we’ve hosted and athletic achievements of our physiotherapists, staff, patients, and supporters.

 

Our very own Rosalind Ferry has released the second edition of her book, The Posture Pain Fix. More information about Ros as an author can be found here!
