What Would Make You the Best Version of Yourself?
Imagine how different your life would look and feel if you had access to the same level of care as professional athletes. How much more could you accomplish?
We started The Athletic Therapy Lab on a mission to change the standard of care – in the world of athletic therapy and beyond.
Whether you’re involved in sport or you can’t throw a ball straight, you deserve to feel better, stronger and capable of doing hard things. Most importantly, you deserve to move well. Your body can, and should, function at its highest, most optimal state, without pain holding you back from doing what you love.
By helping you move better throughout your life, we’re helping you achieve whatever it is you excel at – whether you’re an elite athlete or weekend warrior.
We believe the same protocols designed to keep pro athletes on the field can be used to help keep frontline workers where we need them.
The same practices can be used to help small business owners continue working and providing for their families. The same approach can be used to help you advocate for your health, so you feel empowered to do the work you need to do to keep your body feeling strong throughout every stage of your life.
It’s up to you to become an advocate for your own health and wellbeing. We’re here to support you every step of the way.
When you partner with us, your only regret will be that you didn’t do it sooner.

I’ve been a skater from the time I was a kid. From regional championships, to recreational training and adult competitions, I spent nearly as much time with my athletic therapist as I did on the ice. My body felt great when I was at the peak of my sport. But the day I stopped skating regularly, things started to go downhill.
It wasn’t until I started working through my own health issues that I realized athletic therapy is more than just treating injuries. It’s a full body experience. And movement is the key to staying healthy.
Unlike other practitioners, I don’t want to see you on my table every week for the rest of your life. I want to heal you. I want to find a long-term fix for your pain. To me, that means looking beyond your symptoms to find ways to strengthen and support your body and mind, whether you’re a pro athlete or a weekend warrior.
I want to change the way you think about exercise. To prove to you that, like me, you can fix your chronic pain through movement and feel at home in your body again.
If you’re looking for a Band-Aid solution or a quick fix, I’m not your girl. But if you’re in the market for someone who will have your back and push you when you need it, you’re in the right place.

Like many other athletes, I was introduced to athletic therapy after an injury. In the middle of a soccer game I blocked a shot, shattering my ankle, and the rest is history. But it wasn’t until I realized athletic therapists are the ones you see assessing the pros on the field mid-game that I knew I wanted to study it myself.
Today, I am that practitioner on the field. I’ve had the opportunity to work with several professional teams, from the CFL to Toronto FC. I was even courtside working with the Toronto Raptors when we won the championship. But, along the way, I couldn’t help but wonder what the everyday athlete might be capable of if they had access to the same kind of care the pros did.
I believe everyone is an athlete in their own regard – from mothers carrying their kids, to warehouse workers who lift heavy boxes all day. These are all athletic movements.
It’s my mission to take the level of care the pros do and make it accessible for the everyday athlete. To provide the kind of resources you need to take your wellness into your own hands and reach your goals, whether that’s improving your weekend golf game or lifting your PR at the gym.
Everyone should have access to the kind of care they want and deserve.
A pain-free life starts by taking your health into your own hands. We’re just here to help guide you in the right direction.
