At VC Therapeutics we take a multidisciplinary hands-on approach to rehabilitation and healing, incorporating both conventional and alternative therapies.
With more than 17 years of combined experience our therapists offer individualized one-on-one treatments, addressing and meeting specific needs and health goals.
We also strive to increase awareness and prevention of injury and dysfunction through patient education.
Today our lives are stressful. Full of to and fro, here to there and this done by that time. Take a moment and embark on a journey of relaxation. Our professional RMT, Mirabela, will help you escape the demands and stresses of every day life.
Injuries happen; the world is not always so kind. However, our physiotherapist, Amanda, will have you on the road to recovery. You show resilience in every day life, so let us help you regrow.
Mirabela (aka Bela) graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in 2008. She is a member in good standing with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. Since graduating she has worked in a variety of settings, including multi-disciplinary clinics and spas and with a variety of patients, from athletes, elderly, children and everyone in between.
She is passionate about Massage Therapy and believes that it is a great tool in treating acute to chronic conditions and it is amazing for preventative health. Being proactive as opposed to reactive, when it comes to your health, is an easy way to reduce your stress and decrease your risk of injury. This way you can be at your best for both work and play.
Mirabela supports and encourages the use of multiple treatment modalities for the management of stress and facilitated healing and as such offers Acupuncture and Reflexology.
