Returning Clients Only
Unfortunately, at this time, no new patients are accepted due to a full patient schedule. The waiting list is now closed until another experienced physiotherapist becomes a part of our team. We recommend VC Athletic Therapy & Ottawa Valley Physiotherapy in Petawawa should you be able to make it there for treatment.

Does my extended benefits plan cover the appointments?
Most extended health plans provide coverage for physiotherapy. Please check with your provider for more detailed information on the benefits available to you. Some plans require a Medical Doctor’s note to claim physiotherapy; this can be obtained from your family MD or if needed I can refer you to a doctor for this purpose. All services provided by Kara Foley PT will be billed under “Physiotherapy.”
What payments methods do you accept?
You can pay with cash, credit card, debit card, cheque, or e-transfer (to email@example.com)
Are your services covered by OHIP?
No. However, the Deep River Hospital Physiotherapy Centre accepts OHIP.
Do you accept Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) appointments?
Yes, but we do not directly bill insurers.
What is your Cancellation Policy?
Please provide at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. This can be done online or by calling (613) 584-1729.
Of course, sometimes circumstances arise and you are unable to give advanced notice. Please phone in this case and we can discuss rescheduling. If you are unable to reschedule and have to cancel your appointment the same day a fee of 50% the value of your appointment will be charged. Failure to notify the practitioner, and not showing up for the scheduled appointment (“No Show”), will be subject to a fee of 100% appointment value. This is to ensure that appointments that will not be used become available to those that need them.
Can you explain what your "holistic" physiotherapy is?
Traditional Physiotherapy – Assessment and treatment of injury or imbalance through the application of manual therapy, ultrasound, electrotherapy, and exercise prescription to reduce pain, improve tissue quality, and restore function.
Craniosacral Therapy – Using very gentle touch to release deep tensions in the body to relieve pain, stress, dysfunction, and to improve whole body health, immune function, and promote overall wellbeing.
Neural Manipulation – Identifies and releases restrictions in the skull, brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves to achieve balance in the body and restore function from global restriction patterns. Through facilitating nerve conduction and restoring blood supply, communication in the body is re-established and the body is then able to adapt and restore itself to optimal health. Neural manipulation is excellent for post-trauma and whiplash injury, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica, headaches, TMJ, joint pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, brachial plexus injury, digestive disorders, and many other pain disorders.
Medical Acupuncture – The insertion of single-use, sterile, disposable needles into the underlying muscles and nerve tissues for pain and inflammation relief, circulation, and nerve stimulation. Medical acupuncture combines both meridian and muscle trigger points and is an excellent adjunct to most treatment plans. At Bodhi Holistic Physiotherapy it is billed under “physiotherapy” and cannot be billed as “acupuncture.”
Fascial Release – The fascia is a continuous tissue in our body that surrounds our bones, joints, and muscles creating long lines of both movement and restriction. When restricted it can have a global effect on our body creating lines of pull and altering our movement patterns. Through evaluation of varying positions, these restrictions can be identified and released through manual therapy and maintained with specific, long duration stretching.
Yoga for Scoliosis – Evaluation of your unique scoliosis and customization of independent and assisted yoga poses to lengthen the spine, and strengthen postural muscles. Focusing on the breath and restoring length through daily practice can reduce pain and prevent progression of scoliosis. By learning what adjustments to make to optimize posture this will allow you to participate in yoga classes while concurrently doing your rehabilitation.
Some of these therapies are combined into one appointment type, such as “Stress Fix.” Click here for all of the booking options.
