“I highly recommend Empower Physio to anyone who's looking for a new place to go! I've been going to Jen for years and have to say she is so accommodating and knowledgeable about how everything works and makes sure I feel comfortable when doing exercises or procedures like IMS. As the cherry on top, the front desk staff are super friendly and contribute to the overall positive experience of going to Empower Physiotherapy!” - Shahira Dean
