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. 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.
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.
Registered Acupuncture / Traditional Chinese Medicine

Wellness Massage: $75 for 60 Minutes
Booking a wellness massage is comparable quality to seeing an RMT- yet at a fraction of the price! Our wellness massage providers are trained in therapeutic technique, deep tissue massage, relaxation massage, pre-natal massage and sport massage. Wellness Massage is a great option for those who don't have extended coverage but still carry a high expectation on treatment, or those who can't get in to see an RMT in a timely manner. You can not use your extended health benefits for a wellness massage. 60 minutes = $75 + gst
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.
