Newell Physiotherapy has been providing personalized care to clients since 2005.  Having multiple therapists (both PT and RMT) trained in myofascial release with a variety of experience levels it's possible to find the right match between you and your therapist.  Our location, on the fifth floor of a medical building, provides easy access for clients with disabilities.  Treatments are provided in private rooms, many with south facing windows and natural light.

We pride ourselves in helping clients who haven't been able to find relief with past attempts at treatment.  Our ability to understand our clients and connect with them helps to elicit deep and profound changes.

Intensives can be provided for clients traveling from out of town with advanced notice.

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").
