Mike Potkonyak

Physiotherapist

 

RPT (Registered Physiotherapist)

BScPT (Hons.) (Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Therapy)

BSc (Bachelor of science in Kinesiology)

 

I graduated with an honors degree in Physiotherapy from Queen’s University in 2004, and I am also trained in acupuncture and certified by the Canadian Acupuncture Foundation.

Having completed my Kinesiology degree in 1997 from Simon Fraser University, I have an extensive background in exercise prescription, exercise therapy and personal training.

Competing in a number of sports at an elite/professional level, including both tennis and soccer, I developed a special interest in muscle balance, joint stability and functional movement retraining in treating musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.

I specialize in the assessment and treatment of the lumbar spine, neck, shoulder and sacroiliac joint and provide an evidence-based approach to my treatment sessions while working closely with my patients to provide a client centered approach - helping to speed their recovery and assist them in avoiding further episodes of a similar nature in the future.

R.Ac (Registered Acupuncturist)

 

I graduated from the Acupuncture program at Eight Branches Academy of Eastern Medicine in 2016 and am a registered member of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario (CTCMPAO). I am clinically trained in both Chinese and Japanese acupuncture and moxibustion techniques as well as cupping, Guasha, Tuina and Electro-Acupuncture to help ease pain of musculoskeletal disorders, and myofascial release.

I am a passionate practitioner, who believes patient education and self-care regarding lifestyle, diet, and stress management integrated with a variety of Chinese medicine modalities is essential for the treatment of chronic and acute pain, and preventative care.

Prior to studying acupuncture, I received a diploma in Social Service Work and spent over six years living in China. It was there, where I experienced the long-term benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine first hand. I knew then, that I wanted to dedicate my time to helping people achieve balance and well-being through this holistic approach to healing local and systemic issues.

I regularly continue to strengthen my knowledge and skills as a practitioner through continuing education workshops related to body work, and practicing gentler and effective needling techniques to provide my patients with an effective and comfortable treatment experience.

Clarissa Anson

Patient Care Coordinator

 

I've worked in fast paced and slow pace environments, allowing my attributes to be flexible. In my personal life, wellness and fitness play a critical role. In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, and trying out local restaurants as I am a huge foodie!

I am currently pursing my Finance degree at Humber College. After graduating high school early, I was indecisive when it came to choosing a major. My love for economics and investing drew me to Finance. As a hobby I am a full-time trader. Although my background is in Finance, a big part of my experience was working in different sectors that were customer driven and focused on the highest quality of meeting the demands of these customers.
