Was referred to MECH Physiotherapy by my GP for sciatica and DDD. Mariana is an extremely knowledgeable and capable physiotherapist, able to inspire and motivate patients to achieve significant relief. Between the physiotherapy sessions and the homework exercises, my sciatic pain was greatly reduced, and continues to be so when I remember to do the exercises. Her staff are friendly and skilled, and the massage therapist they bring in on request is excellent at getting deep into tissue to relieve stubborn aches and muscle knots. Wish I lived closer so I could visit more often!
I'm a teacher & dancer, and I get treatment here for any tightness in my shoulders, neck & hips. The staff @ MECH Physiotherapy have always helped me to loosen the tightness in my body to be able to continue enjoy dance, sports, and physical fitness optimally! They are professional, courteous, and very knowledgeable! Strongly recommended!
I have had 3 physiotherapy appointments and 3 massage appointments. I have found the staff to be friendly, caring and proficient at their work. I have been to others for both massage and physiotherapy in the past, and I can honestly say there is no need to go anywhere else. Happy they have moved into my neighbourhood.
Simply the best physiotherapist I have been to. I had been suffering from osteoarthritis in my neck, but after several treatments and doing the prescribed stretches I have experienced great relief. Thanks so much to Mariana, Kendra and staff! Keep up your stellar work!
These guys are the best. I’ve been depending on Mech and their great team of therapist for the last seven years. Mech’s Physio therapy has helped me get through both a back surgery and a hip replacement which has allowed me to continue as a yoga Instructor, even at the age of 59. Thanks and keep up the great work.
