Our Mission

We strive to have every patient leave our clinic feeling that they have never had that level of care and attention from a health care professional before.  We achieve this through having undivided attention from all staff, including one on one sessions with our therapists in private treatment rooms. No bouncing between patients or juggling more than one at a time. We work as a team to communicate with each other and to our patients to try and achieve a seamless experience from when you book your appointment to when you walk out our doors. Our staff will always go out of our way to ensure we are a positive part of your day.

Stephanie Honess

Physiotherapist

Level III Upper and Lower Quadrant manual therapy certifications through the Canadian Physiotherapy Orthopedic Division

Certified in Biomedical Dry Needling (IMS)

Growing up in a small town (Enchant, Alberta) groomed me for a life filled with sports- baseball, basketball, badminton, dance, volleyball and the list goes on! I was always active, and enjoyed being outdoors, and because of that ended up needing a lot of physical therapy in the process. Volleyball ended up being the sport I pursued, and was fortunate to compete at the provincial, national, and eventually collegiate level at the University of Calgary where I obtained my Bachelor's degree. I have been working as a physiotherapist in Lethbridge since I graduated from University of Alberta with a Master’s in Physiotherapy in the fall of 2015, and have since completed many other postgraduate certifications including manual therapy and dry needling. These days my interests include hiking, biking, running, lifting weights, and spending time with my husband, two kids, and extended family.

 

I consider my treatment to be exercise and movement focused, with a strong manual therapy component to help you reach your movement goals. Although I do have a special interest in the athletic population, anyone that is motivated to reach their movement and fitness goals are my specialty.

James Rowan

Physiotherapist

Level III Upper and Lower quadrants manual therapy certifications of the Canadian Physiotherapy Orthopaedic Division

Certified to practice Chan Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS).

I began my post-secondary education at UBC where I obtained my Bachelors in Human Kinetics with a focus on exercise science. I completed a Masters degree in physiotherapy in 2008 from the University of Alberta, and have completed a number of post-graduate physiotherapy courses.

I specialize in manual therapy, orthopaedics, workplace health, and sports injuries. I have worked in private practice clinics for most entire career.  Although I have worked predominantly in the Vancouver area before arriving in Lethbridge, my career took me to London, England. My position in London was unique as I was treating staff members on-site at two large hospitals and at Harrods Department store. As part of this job, I performed job site evaluations, ergonomic assessments, and assessed and treated staff members. 

 

When I am not working, I enjoy running, skiing, travelling and spending time with my wife and two young daughters.

Jessi Wilson

Physiotherapist

McKenzie Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment Part A
Pelvic Health Solutions' Level 1 and Pregnancy and Pelvic Girdle Pain
Certified in Complete Concussion Management*

I was born and raised in southern Alberta. I started my degree in exercise science at Medicine Hat College where I played volleyball. From there, I moved to Lethbridge to finish my degree at the U of L. I then moved up north to complete my MSc. PT at the U of A. 

Being from a small town in southern Alberta, there wasn’t a ton to do except “sport”. I played anything and everything that involves a ball or a court. I still enjoy playing recreational slo-pitch throughout the summer and volleyball throughout the rest of the year. I enjoy maintaining an active lifestyle and am known to be a bit of an animal-person. Our house is chaotic with animals and now a toddler!

I am passionate about patient education. Knowledge is power and a good understanding of pain and an injury allows for my clients to play an active role in their recovery. I think this passion of mine is the reason I have developed a love for pelvic health - a large portion of treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction involves patient education and behavioral modifications aside from actual exercise.
