Laura grew up in Waverley, Nova Scotia in a sport-loving family. As a very energetic child, her parents put her in many sports. She competed nationally and internationally in artistic gymnastics and sprint kayaking. Over her athletic career, Laura experienced the benefit of physiotherapy with several of her injuries. The most significant was a back injury that shifted her focus off her kayaking goals. With her physiotherapist’s guidance, she learned the value of building strength and mobility and was able to return to her sport successfully. This experience led her to study kinesiology at Dalhousie University. After working alongside several physiotherapists as a kinesiologist, she decided to pursue a degree in physiotherapy at the University of Queensland, Australia, graduating in 2014.
Laura enjoys learning and growing as a physiotherapist. She continues her education by taking courses in manual therapy, exercise prescription, dry needling and sports related topics. What Laura loves most about physiotherapy is being able to coach people through their injury and lead them back to what’s important to them. Outside of the clinic, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, surfing, skiing, triathlons and of course the occasional handstand.

Sean was a busy child which led his parents to focus his energy sports and recreation. He grew up in a small town in New Brunswick which allowed him the opportunity to participate in many sports both team and individual.
At 18 years of age, Sean suffered a knee injury which grew his personal interest in the rehabilitation field. His concentration seemed to gravitate to anatomy and physiology which lead him to enroll into Kinesiology at UNB. While at UNB he continued his love of hockey and played defence for the UNB Men's Hockey Team. After personally attending Physiotherapy for his knee concern, he decided to pursue this as his career. He was accepted into the Physiotherapy School at Dalhousie University and graduated in 2000.
Sean’s personal patient experience with Physiotherapy showed him the sense of accomplishment you reach when you focus on goal and work hard. Over his career as a Physiotherapist, Sean tries to connect this feeling to his patients to return them to their goals. The point when the patient reaches their personal goal is what drives his day. After the assessment, Sean collaborates with his patient to make a plan to reach the patient’s goals. He takes time to educate them on their concern. He teaches them on how they can help themselves with exercises and modifying activities (do’s and don’ts). Sean’s sessions consist of a variety of hands on techniques involving mobilizations and manipulations of muscles and joints. If the patient is willing and appropriate, dry needling can be trialed.
Sean still enjoys an active lifestyle with general strength and conditioning exercises. He continues to enjoy coaching and playing hockey, golf, skiing, snowboarding and cottage life. His wife and two daughters keep his experiences rounded and adventurous.

Andrea received her Bachelor of Science degree from Dalhousie University in 1996 before pursuing a career in Massage Therapy. She had a friend who was enrolled in massage therapy school and after chatting about this fairly new field of work, Andrea signed up. She like that it combined aspects of several health professions and was inspired by both her paternal grandparents. Her grandparents were both nurses in the mental health sector so Andrea grew up hearing about the helping and healing professions. She loves getting to know her patients, their families, successes and failures and that on some level helps her patients navigate life's ups and downs. She was a honours graduate from Northumberland College in Halifax in 1999. Andrea has since completed many postgraduate courses including those in myofascial release, deep tissue therapy, cupping and most recently, Foundations in Acupuncture (250 hours) from The College of Acupuncture and Therapeutics.
Andrea enjoys tailoring each treatment to meet her clients' specific needs. She is excited to be able to integrate acupuncture into her treatments for those clients who would benefit from it. Her many years of clinical experience allow her to identify and treat issues to help her clients feel their best. She lives in our local community and loves spending time with her husband and son.
