WHAT IS MASSAGE THERAPY?
Therapeutic massage is an important part of your health and wellness plan. It can help you when you are injured, stressed, in chronic pain, or simply in need of a little relaxation and balance. Ongoing massage therapy can help you achieve a preventative approach to your health & well-being. Massage techniques most commonly include pressure and compression, kneading, fractioning and mobilizing to improve the health and condition of the muscles, tendons, skin, fascia or connective tissue of the body. Our experienced & professional Registered Massage Therapists will carefully customize a massage to best suit your needs.
REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPISTS ARE SKILLED AT TREATING A WIDE RANGE OF CONDITIONS INCLUDING:
- Sprains and strains
- Trauma (e.g. motor vehicle accidents)
- Tendonitis & Muscle spasms or spasticity
- Post-operative care and rehabilitation
- Sports/athletic injuries & Back pain
- Muscular tension headaches & Arthritis
- Psychological impairments, such as depression and anxiety
- Muscular tension and pain (eg neck)
WHAT ARE The BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPY?
Massage therapy is relaxing, and it certainly feels good, but there are many benefits to massage of which you may not be aware. Massage increases blood supply, oxygen, and nutrition to muscles, tissue, joints, and the vital organs, and improves circulation throughout the body. This helps muscles to recover more quickly from exertion and fatigue (especially useful after a strenuous workout), and helps to relieve the pain and discomfort associated with muscle tension, fractures, sprains, sciatica, and stiff joints.

Sports Performance Massage
Massage Therapy is a great addition to any fitness routine! Our therapists have provided service to national-level athletes in various sports. Stop pain and discomfort before it stops you.
Myofascial Release Therapy
The technique focuses on pain believed to arise from myofascial tissues — the tough membranes that wrap, connect and support your muscles. During myofascial release therapy, the therapist locates myofascial areas that feel stiff and fixed instead of elastic and movable under light manual pressure. The focused manual pressure and stretching used in myofascial release therapy loosen up restricted movement, leading indirectly to reduced pain.
Don't allow pain and stress prevent you from living your life.

In the recent snowstorm they personally called all the patients to let them know that they will be closed due to the weather ,thats a true statement of customer service.

Very good and knowledgeable I was in a car accident and was told by my mother in-law to come here after going some others ones. I found this care facility to be the best in the area. I feel so much better everytime I leave.
I was involved in car accident in 2019 and my lawyer referred me to Physiocare Physiotheraphy clinic, and it was the she did for me . They are very professional, knowledgeable, organized and super nice people. They have in the same facility all what I needed, Physiotheraphy, Chiropractic, Massage as well as the most up to date machines .They are also very experienced in the MVA forms and know how manage with the car accidents insurance so they avoided me any kind of problems about it . I highly recommend this clinic for any person in pain and those who get involved in accidents. Thank you so much Ghada , Sindu , Ryan and every one of the team at Physiocare Physiotheraphy !
Got help from chiropractor, Jessica and physiotherapist, Ghada for neck/back posture related issues. Both were very knowledgeable and professional. The staff at the front desk is very kind and welcoming too. Facility was clean with up to date equipment. Also, they take good care in terms of health and cleanliness, keeping covid protocols their top priority. Great service provided overall! 🙂
I am very thankful for the care of Ghada Shendy. It was the best choice for physio.
All of the staff at Physio-Care are very welcoming and professional. The clinicians that treated my scoliosis worked very hard to correct my scolioses and I very please with the results. The treatment took several months and the x-rays are proof that their treatment really works. Aamenah…
Very great service. Professional Service. Very warm people too. I will recommend them anytime
Kendalwood physio therapy is a great clinic that takes care of all your needs. Ryan hill the massage therapist at the clinic is the best! 10/10 Recommend their clinic and Ryan!
I'm extremely pleased with this clinic. There's a reason they have so many positive reviews. Ghana and Ganesh are both amazing at what they do. There is a lot of manual work involved. I've been to many physiotherapists for a chronic shoulder injury and they are the only ones who have been able to help me get better. The clinic is very clean with many rooms for privacy. I would highly recommend!
The best physiotherapy clinic in Whitby! I first came here in 2015 and the physiotherapist, Ghada, was outstanding! I had this horrible sciatica pain in the right leg which stopped me from sitting, standing, walking and sleeping! Driving my car was the a big problem. I visited other physiotherapists and chiropractors but no one could cure my problem. Ghada took care of me and I would say I started feeling better within 4 weeks! The staff are all very nice and qualified and they took good care of me. I have now (2021) come back here for a shoulder problem and am getting the same quality treatment. The clinic has safe protocols in place to deal with COVID-19 and I feel safe and comfortable here. Thank you!
Coming here for the 2years which started as a knee injury that i learned after thanks to this amazing team it was due to other issues i had in my back. they have changed my life to adjust my life and always take care of me the staff and the entire team are exceptional, amazing and so caring. they listen and take their time ever appointment helping me get through my disability. i would not go anywhere else!
This clinic has changed how I view Physiotherapy and combination therapy. I Have worked for the owners, for 3 years and his family treat their staff and patients like family. They truly care about each HUMAN in their presence. The treatment I have watched them provide, is well thought out. I wouldn't recommend any other clinic to my friends and family.
Pros: 1) They're in such a hidden corner in the plaza but have like 50 signs making it impossible to miss the place. 2) They're following Covid 19 protocols to the tee. 3) They have all the tools needed for physiotherapists. 4) The wait wasn't long for my appointment. Was in on time and out on time. 5) Ganesh is just fantastic at his job. You enter there after the first visit and come out with more pain due to his manual therapies and that's how you know it's working! Cons: 1) Lots of papers to read and sign on first visit. It took all of a 15 minutes but it would be nice to have an option to fill them online or print and sign at home and bring them in to speed up the first appointment.
Great atmosphere. Everyone there has been helpful, and kind. Highly recommended if you are looking for Physical Therapy.
I have worked at PhysioCare under the care of Ghada Shendy. I worked there for about 4 months before the Corona virus hit. I came in contact with Gamal via a physiotherapist who gave me the reference for the internship for my diploma course which was supposed to be about 2 months in length. I was there to learn the practices of physiotherapy and Ghada, Sinthu and Ganesh were the best teachers. They gave me the opportunity to learn and discuss the cases as well as ask questions on the go. It was very helpful in my studies and character development as a physiotherapy Assistant. Once I finished my Internship, Gamal offered me the job pending some training. And the same with the job, I had the responsibilities but I also learnt a lot. I am thankful to the whole PhysioCare team.
Love the energy of everyone at this Clinic. Always look forward to coming here for my appointments. All the staff here are outstanding, easy going and friendly. Booking appointments are never a hassle, treatments are very simple, yet effective. I love the modalities they use as they are highly effective. They are sure to take care of everything for you and over all really care for you and your recovery. I always recommend anyone to this clinic for physio as well as massage. My shoulder pain from my accident is improving constantly thanks to them. Special appreciation for Gamal the owner, Sindhu and Ryan!
I came here because of a workplace accident where I had a back injury and needed physio and I am so glad that I chose this place the staff is so friendly and take good care of you it really is like visiting family when I go there Ghada is so friendly knowledgeable and professional she did my physio always making sure I was comfortable and Ryan works magic with massages cant wait for my next one! Dr.Jamal is super friendly always greeting with a big smile like long lost family member and he made sure I got the best appointment times for a smooth recovery.I highly recommend this place for your physio/massage needs!!
I attended physio care a couple of weeks ago during the holiday rush. I was having lots of pain and I called and Gamal did his best to fit me in immediately. Ganesh did a thorough assessment and provided me with simple stretches/exercises to do throughout the week. My pain lessened significantly within the next couple of days. The staff at this clinic do an amazing job to work with your schedule and to make sure you can be seen as soon as possible. They truly care about their clients and want to see them improve. I have recommended them to my family to see in the future if they require care.
This place has become like my second home. I have been going there consistently 2/3 times per week for the past 4 months and I have met most of their employees. They treat you like you’re family!! They offer a mix of physical manipulation, mobilisations, technology and they have taught me how to stretch properly to treat my frozen shoulder. They also do massotherapy, chiropractic treatments and osteopathy. Everybody at the clinic is caring and understanding. The reception staff is friendly and professional. I appreciate that they do direct billing to my insurance company. They are making a real difference in my quality of life and I highly recommend this place.
I was introduced to Physio Care by a friend who goes there and when I had an injury to my arm, I called and got an appointment immediately. I am so thankful for the owners and staff of this company. They are caring and careful to listen and would look at various options to work with you to reduce the pain and ensure that you are feeling better. Based on my availability I have had appointments with 4 different physio and massage therapists and I can confidently say none have let down my expectations. I am feeling a whole lot better but will ensure I keep maintenance appointments just because I know it’s not about the money to them but the clients comfort and healing. Thank you all so much from the Office manager to everyone else.
I would highly recommend this clinic to my family and friends. A professional, excellent and friendly service that i 100% recommend. I got superb care and quality service with high level of professionalism from staff. Keep up the good work Physio care physiotherapy!
Super skilled and professional team. I have tried before a couple of providers in the area to recover from my lower back pain but didn't get desired outcome. Few weeks ago I connected with Gamal and he was able to provide wholistic assessment and treatment plan with his amazing team addressing both muscles and spine issues. Now I feel way better. Highly recommended!
In the first week of August I got into a head on collision and had major neck injuries. Prior to the accident I have a condition called scoliosis and because of this I had a lot of lower back pain as well as upper back and in the neck area. Gamal and his team taught me a lot about my condition and gave me faith in fixing it. So far since I’ve been going for treatment i have seen a lot of improvement in my body. Not only are they knowledgeable in what they do, they also love what they do. I 100% recommend people to go here. They legit care for you as if you are family.
