What to expect from Physiotherapy at Zen Muskoka…
Physiotherapy with Kirsten at Zen Muskoka is set apart by its simplicity. The approach is to guide you towards treating and healing yourself with increased awareness of your own movement.
Your first visit will last 1 hour and will include an initial assessment. You can expect to have a discussion with Kirsten, complete paperwork, and undergo a physical evaluation. Treatment will be provided during your first visit.
After exploring your needs you and Kirsten will create a personalized treatment plan designed to help you move out of pain and into free easy movement. This will outline the frequency and duration of subsequent visits.
Subsequent appointments are 1 hour in length, and one on one with Kirsten (Registered Physiotherapist). You and your physiotherapist will continue to explore your movement patterns….nurturing those that support you moving out of pain and quieting those that do not.
