Wellness Massage (Non-Registered)
Our wellness massage providers hold a diploma in massage therapy but they are not (yet) registered in BC. They offer deep tissue to relaxation, and everything in between. We also offer hot stone therapy! Wellness massage is a great option for those who don't have extended coverage but still carry a high expectation on treatment! You can not use your extended health benefits for a wellness massage.
Registered Massage Therapy
Our team works at restoring function and decreasing pain and muscular tension in our clients. Our clinic is not relaxation focused, although we are capable of providing relaxing treatments if requested. Our main treatment focus is therapeutic massage, rehabilitation, deep tissue, preventative therapies, general muscular maintenance and sport massage. You are welcome to stick with one therapist, or book with who ever fits your schedule best. ICBC also recognizes the benefit and we can now directly bill ICBC for you if you have an active claim.
Physiotherapy / Athletic Therapy
While Physiotherapy and Athletic Therapy are two distinct professional designation, there is very little difference with regard to quality of treatment at Kinetic Energy. With a patient centered focus, our therapists are well versed in orthopaedic and musculoskeletal injury assessment and rehabilitation techniques. Deciding which is right for you might just depend on what kind of insurance coverage you have. Athletic therapists are focused solely on musculoskeletal disorders, while Physiotherapists have more scope with regards to neurological and cardiovascular health issues. Both professions have a focus on prevention of injury, proper assessments, acute and chronic injury management, as well as maintaining a high standard of professional responsibility. Physician referrals are not required to receive assessment by a physiotherapist or athletic therapist.
Our Registered Acupuncturists may perform a variety of technqiues during an appointment such as application of acupuncture needles, tuina massage, guasha, cupping, and electrodes. While all techniques have roots in traditional Chinese medicine, they are now practiced throughout the world and can be claimed on your extended health coverage. ICBC also recognizes the benefit and we can directly bill ICBC for you if you have an active claim.
Our chiropractor primarily adjusts the traditional way, although he stays up-to-date on modern technology. He uses a variety of techniques in his practice, such as the use of a drop table and an arthrostim device which delivers repetitive low force thrusts to the spine. When indicated he may suggest shockwave therapy as part of the treatment plan. If you do not see a desired time that works for you, please call reception at 250-828-6637 and we will see try to fit you in.
Kinesiologists are sort of like a combination between a physiotherapist, a personal trainer and a yoga instructor. During a treatment session, you will focus on body awareness, muscle strength, joint flexibility, range of motion, stretching, balance and relaxation of muscles. Kinesiologists are trained to work with you on the good days and the bad days throughout recovery. ICBC recognizes the benefit of active rehabilitation and we can now directly bill if you have an active claim.
