Physical & Holistic Therapies
Healthy Body, Healthy Mind
The Mind and Body are often thought to be two distinct entities, but mental health and physical health should not be thought of as being separate. Poor physical health can increase the possibility of developing mental health problems, just as poor mental health can negatively impact physical health.

At Central Minds, we have highly skilled therapists who are trained in traditional physiotherapy and complementary therapies. They use holistic, integrated approaches to dealing with ailments and conditions.
Infants, children, adults, the elderly, amateur and elite sports persons and pregnant women can benefit from this integrative approach. It is particularly useful if you have a chronic or recurrent condition that is unresponsive or has responded poorly or temporarily to direct treatment modalities.
By taking an integrated approach, our therapists will be able to determine whether your symptoms are a result of a series of chain reactions or compensations that are taking place elsewhere in your body. For example, knee pain can often be caused by an old ankle sprain or restricted movement at the hips or headaches can often stem from a stiff neck.
By addressing the root cause of the problem, you are less likely to experience a relapse in your condition or injury and are more likely to be able to fully enjoy your normal activities of daily life. Understanding of the strong connections between different body parts, as well as the uniqueness of every individual and his/her condition are the keys to the success of the treatment program.

Hear What They Say
“Wendy is an amazing physiotherapist! She is very thorough and takes her time while working on the body to release tension or work on realignment. I love her sessions because she is really there to treat you and not like other therapists who leave you hooked up on a machine. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs to work on shoulder tension, migraines and lower back pain. She is wonderful!”

Frequently Asked Questions
Central Minds, does not accept direct billing from insurance companies. You would have to pay for your session directly and then have your insurance company reimburse you for the payment.

Please check with your insurance carrier if a referral letter from a general practitioner/primary doctor is needed for reimbursement.
Craniosacral therapy is a non-invasive, gentle, applied healing technique that concentrates on a wave-like rhythmic pulse that passes through the whole body. This is a method that emphasizes the role of musculoskeletal system in health & disease.
In this therapy, the physiotherapist makes light contact with gentle finger pressure at selected points near the head, torso, feet and knees to note the observations at selected points and in the craniosacral system (the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord).
The aim of CST is to get rid of limitations in the body to improve the functioning of the central nervous system as this is the root cause of many structural and spinal disparities.
