How do I get to the NEW clinic?

Google Maps has been updated to be more accurate for Pelvic Support Physio

2039 Robertson Road in the Bell Mews Plaza however PSP is not in the plaza but the tower behind.  For the closest entrance to the tower, park in the back where there's ample parking and the entrance is accessible. You'll see signs for the Queensway Carleton Unit, that's the right entrance.  Down the hall to the left are a set of stairs you can use or the elevator is just a little further down the hall.  Go up to the 3rd floor and Suite 302 is the clinic.  Check in at the front desk and I'll come and get you.  My room is to the right, first room on the right.

Why should I book an appointment?

 You are ready to try a different approach that is focused on freeing body restrictions which are limiting functioning and mobility. We are focused on making changes at each session but would need at least 3 sessions at regular intervals to help us determine if you do respond to this form of treatment and would benefit from continuing care.  We provide a safe, calming environment for healing and help you feel differently in your body from your current state of dysfunction.

What is the difference between Athletic Therapy and Physiotherapy?

Athletic therapy is specific to musculoskeletal injuries.  AT developed from professionals who were working with professional athletes and finding more specific and effective ways to return those athletes back to performance.  Those same techniques are used to help return you to whatever activity whether that is going out for walks or playing competitive sports, whether you’re a child with a concussion or a recreational athlete enjoying sports with friends and family. ATs are like specialists whereas Physiotherapy are generalists.  Physiotherapy will cover a greater scope of issues than an AT.  You decide which approach is best for you and your situation.

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system, which has been shown to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, as well as many other systems of the body, such as digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory, and more. CST has also been shown to help with the physical components related to such somatic conditions as Post Traumatic Stress, depression and anxiety.By facilitating the body's natural and innate healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for helping people with a wide range of healthcare challenges associated with pain and dysfunction.

What is Visceral Manipulation Therapy?

VM assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments. VM increases proprioceptive communication within the body, thereby revitalizing a person and relieving symptoms of pain, dysfunction, and poor posture. An integrative approach to evaluation and treatment of a patient requires assessment of the structural relationships between the viscera, and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system. Strains in the connective tissue of the viscera can result from surgical scars, adhesions, illness, posture or injury. Tension patterns form through the fascial network deep within the body, creating a cascade of effects far from their sources for which the body will have to compensate. This creates fixed, abnormal points of tension that the body must move around, and this chronic irritation gives way to functional and structural problems.Visceral Manipulation relies on the palpation of normal and abnormal forces within the body. By using specific techniques, therapists can evaluate how abnormal forces interplay, overlap and affect the normal body forces at work. The goal is to help the body's normal forces remove abnormal effects, whatever their sources. Those effects can be global, encompassing many areas of bodily function.

What is Cupping?

Cupping is used to decrease pain and increase circulation to an area of limitation. What makes cupping unique to traditional manual based therapies is that cupping will lift the tissue away from the body whereas manual techniques typically push the tissues down towards the body. It’s excellent for breaking up adhesions and restoring mobility back to an area.  It is not always terribly comfortable but it is effective especially for freeing up superficial fascia.

Kathleen, where do you get your music from?

Is this a playlist?

I've created playlists on Spotify based on playlists recommended to me or created for me, also some songs come from tv/movies, random occurences. I've picked mostly songs that are soft sounding to help create a calm environment but I personally need words of some sort so there won't be any instrumental.  I've also picked songs with no swearwords because that's not appropriate nor calming.  These playlists are called, "Clinic Music for Me" and then numbered in succession. I think you'll need a Spotify account to listen or see the playlist but hopefully not.  You can take your RTP experience everywhere you listen to music.  Enjoy!
