The Vitality Foundation
The team at Vitality Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre inspires people to live a healthy and active lifestyle. They want their clients to appreciate that their body deserves better than living with pain.
The rehabilitation industry has been around for years, however, it has not progressed and evolved to keep up with patients’ needs. Vitality Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre has patient needs, quality service, and overall client experience as its core values. This is the change the industry needed.
When looking for a new clinic, patients may face a daunting experience, filled with unknowns. Not knowing what to expect or what the path to recovery might look like can take a toll on patients. This can sometimes limit patients from finding the right health care professional and delay their recovery. In order to help patients in their path to recovery, our founder understood this and wanted to transform the industry.
Here’s the story of how Vitality Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre came to be the revolutionary industry leader it is today:
The Company’s Beginning
In 2016, Vitality Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre founder and registered physiotherapist Andrew Istefanos learned that the physiotherapy industry operated using outdated procedures. From his experience working in various clinics in the Greater Toronto Area, he learned that these outdated procedures were the industry norm. Andrew quickly realized that his patient-centered approach helped his patients achieve true wellness.. He believed collaborative care including physiotherapy and massage therapy was meant to be personal, one-on-one, and integrated. Developing a system with individualized treatments influenced by advanced clinical research including manual therapy and movement based exercises, Andrew quickly started to define the future of rehab. This approach created an environment that encouraged dialogue with patients and noted their needs and wants. As a result of this dialogue, it became clear that patients wanted an elevated experience, available in luxurious spaces with private rooms and an open-concept gym with state of the art equipment. With these founding principles, Vitality Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre came to life.
The Evolution- 2018
In 2018, Mina Rezk, a licensed physiotherapist who believed in Vitality’s principles, joined and partnered to help our founder Andrew design the Vitality MVMT (Movement) method. This unique system offered patients the highest standard of care, by providing quality care and education of each session with manual therapy and comprehensive exercise and movement programs carried out with our experts. This system is used by our expert therapists by leveraging manual therapy and movement (MVMT) individually designed to diminish your pain, move you better, and make you feel your best in less time.
20/20 Vision – Vitality Expands in 2020
In the unprecedented year that was 2020, Vitality Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre continued to forge its own path in the industry by expanding with a 20/20 vision. Continuing to provide unforgettable client experiences that are constantly evolving as needed, Vitality Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre became the highest rated physiotherapy clinic on Google with hundreds of 5-star reviews and won multiple awards. This includes the Consumer’s Choice Awards and Top Choice Awards, for best Physiotherapy Clinic in Ottawa (that’s two years in a row now!). In June 2020, due to increased brand awareness, Vitality Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre expanded its footprint and opened a clinic in the community of Findlay Creek.
2021- Expansion outside of Ottawa
With a clear vision of providing elevated client experiences and high quality care, Vitality Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre shared the exciting news that its footprint would expand yet again, this time in Kemptville, ON. Future clients of the Kemptville location can expect the same high quality services offered at our other locations.
