Dan Newell

Expert MFR Practitioner    

Dan graduated from the University of Toronto's Four-year Bachelor of Science, Physical Therapy (B.Sc.P.T.) program in 1998 and has been an actively practicing physiotherapist ever since. Upon coming to Ottawa in 1998, Dan practiced in multiple clinic locations until establishing his own practice, Newell Physiotherapy, in December 2005.

 With over a decade of experience, Dan has always taken pride in his continuing education. Although he completed his university education fifteen years ago, Dan firmly believes that a physical therapist's professional development must be ongoing. Each year he completes multiple instructional courses to keep up with developments in healthcare and treatment research. Dan has completed wide-ranging professional training including manual therapy; joint manipulation; vestibular (vertigo) rehabilitation; and exercise courses for treatment of the back and core, neck, shoulder, and lower extremities. In 2007, Dan discovered the benefits of myofascial release treatments and has since completed extensive training in John F. Barnes Myofascial Release and has been an Expert MFR Practitioner since 2011.

 Dan is actively involved in recreational sports, including downhill skiing and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ), in which he has achieved a blue belt. His martial arts training affords him an understanding of economy of movement and athletic motivation to return to high-level performance. He is also a certified instructor of Hatha Yoga and realizes the health benefits of practicing yoga. Dan prides himself combining knowledge and experience from these different aspects of life, with physiotherapeutic knowledge of anatomy, physiology and functional body mechanics in his therapeutic practice.

Nicole has been a Registered Massage Therapist since completing training at Alqonquin College in 2001.  Her professional training includes training in Rama Indian Head Massage, Craniosacral Therapy and in John F. Barnes Myofascial Release. Along with varied massage techniques such as Swedish massage, myofascial release, deep tissue work and Trigger Point Therapy are among Nicole's preferred treatment techniques.

Nicole discovered the benefits of the myofascial release in her own recovery from the weakness, constant pain and soft tissue damage from traumatic injury. Her own recovery invigorated her professionally and inspired her to develop her skills with that technique. Since 2010, she has taken numerous courses and now practices as an Expert MFR Practitioner.

In her over ten years of practice, Nicole has gained invaluable experience from ongoing professional training and applying her treatment skills to help clients recover from head traumas (whiplash, concussion, brain injury); headaches, migraines and dizziness; and tempero-mandibular joint disorders ("TMJ"/"TMD").

Nicole enjoys her work as a Registered Massage Therapist.  She finds it rewarding to help provide pain relief, support recovery, and provide education toward healthy lifestyle change and body awareness.
