Trish Brunelle, BHSc (PT)

Registered Physiotherapist

Trish Brunelle has been a Registered Physiotherapist for 29 years. She started her career in Mental Health Services and this experience taught her the valuable skills she has needed to work with a variety of people. After moving to the small clinic setting, Trish has sought out new knowledge at every turn and this has led her to study a variety of areas including Women's Health, Pelvic Health, Visceral Manipulation, Craniosacral Therapy, Acupuncture and Orthopaedics. With a particular passion for Pelvic Health, Trish has travelled to California, Vancouver, Reno and extensively throughout Canada, to learn techniques that will further her patients' health goals. She is trained in Hypopressives (also known as Low Pressure Fitness) and Pfilates, both of which are innovative pelvic floor techniques. While receiving treatment for pelvic health issues, you can be certain that education will play a strong role in your care. Trish has been a runner and has done many distances including 4 marathons. She has recently found a passion for her stand up paddle board and is looking forward to snowshoe season. Come and visit at our new location!

Kaley McKay, MScPT, MSc, BHSc Registered Physiotherapist

 

Kaley started her career as a Registered Physiotherapist in 2013, prior to which she completed a Bachelor of Health Sciences and a Master of Medical Science at McMaster University. As a physiotherapist, Kaley strives to put the power in her clients' hands, providing them with the knowledge, tools, and resources needed to achieve their health-related goals. A nerd at heart (according to her husband), Kaley never passes up the opportunity to learn: orthopaedics, sport medicine, women's health, pelvic floor physiotherapy, and persistent pain are some of her favourite key areas of interest.

When not at the clinic, Kaley tries to create as much balance in her life as possible. Growing up in Northern Ontario, she developed a great love for outdoor adventure, small-town living, and of course, hockey. After years of playing competitive ice hockey and ball hockey, she now enjoys training for triathlons, practicing yoga, and exploring the great Canadian outdoors with her hubby and their energetic springer spaniel, Lucy.

Polina is a graduate from the University of Toronto with a Master of Science in Physiotherapy. 

During her studies, Polina was involved in an extensive research project which evaluated exercise

programs into her practice to address safe and effective exercise for individuals with osteoporosis

and scoliosis. Polina also holds an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology and

knowledge in anatomy, exercise physiology, nutrition, mindfulness and physical rehabilitation.


An avid believer in life-long learning, Polina continues to enrol in post-graduate courses. She has

obtained certifications in athletic taping, soft tissue release therapy and acupuncture, as well as

qualifications in the McKenzie, Mulligan and orthopaedic manual therapy methods. Her most exciting

undertaking is pelvic health physio – which has become a passion and transformed her practice!

Using tools from each system, Polina finds that her clients can achieve positive results in their

healing journey!


Polina was born in Russia and grew up in South America with her family. Her childhood experiences

have sparked her to become an avid traveler and continues to immerse herself into foreign cultures.

On her spare time, you can find her mapping out her next adventure!
