Virtual Therapy Information
What is virtual care?
Virtual care, or tele-health, involves using video calls to provide our services remotely. During these interesting times as our physical clinic remains closed, you can still connect with our healthcare professionals. As with in-person care, these virtual treatments will follow the same safety, and effective standards as outlined in our various governing colleges.
What types of treatments are provided virtually?
We provide Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, and Music Therapy virtually. Virtual treatments are for anyone seeking assistance in managing their jaw/facial pain, clicking, ear ringing/fullness, headaches, stress, or other related symptoms.

Is virtual therapy effective?
Our therapists are healthcare professionals and have the knowledge to diagnose, treat, and educate in a variety of different ways. Virtual treatments have a lot of the same benefits as in-person sessions. Of course we still value our face-to-face and hands on interactions with our patients. However, our services are more than just manual therapy, and the range of our expertise is not limited to only our hands. Our ears and what lies between them is one of our therapists best tools. Evidence shows that patient education around self-care and proper exercises has the ability to reduce pain and other symptoms. Literature has also shown that virtual treatments have similar reliability in assessments and treatment effectiveness. By actively listening we can learn a lot about your individual needs.
Are virtual treatments covered by insurance?
Yes, the majority of health benefit plans in Ontario cover virtual sessions for Chriopractic, Physiotherapy, and Psychotherapy care. These insurers include, but are not limited to, Sunlife, Manulife, Great West Life, WSIB, and some Motor Vehicle Accident clients. We always recommend that you contact your insurance company to confirm your coverage details before booking a session.
