Welcome message from site

Salmon Arm is an incredibly diverse small “city” with a wonderfully active community, whether skiing in the winter or enjoying the hot and beautiful summers. We have been providing Physiotherapy to this community for the past 10 years and have an amazing connection to all that the Shuswap has to offer.

We value a slower pace and an opportunity to connect with each client and provide exceptional care in a one on one environment. Our team of therapists each bring a wealth of experience and knowledge and help us provide amazing client/patient experiences.
