  • Michael Chiasson
    Physiotherapist

    Speaks: English

    Michael’s physiotherapy career started in 2014 as a kinesiologist for pt Health at the Cole Harbour Integrated Health and Forest Hills locations. Spending three years with the company, Michael grew to love the healthcare field and chose to further his education by becoming a physiotherapist. He graduated from Dalhousie University in 2019 with a MSc. in Physiotherapy and is happy to be working as a pt Health team member again.

    Michael believes in using a client-centered approach, incorporating individualized exercise and education to help patients manage pain and recover while preventing future injuries. He hopes to pursue post-graduate courses in acupuncture and manual therapy to help improve the care he can provide to his clients. Outside of physiotherapy, Michael is an avid sports fan and athlete. He played competitive soccer and competed at a national level in sprint canoe/kayak. He continues to maintain an active lifestyle through sports and fitness.

    In his free time there is nothing he enjoys more than spending time at home with his wife, son and two dogs.



  • Emily Mathisen
    Registered Massage Therapist

    Speaks: English

    Emily graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in 2019 and is a member in good standing with MTANS. Throughout her time in school, she developed a passion for helping people that are in pain and discomfort. She has continued to expand on her education by taking courses on chronic pain, cupping, gua sha, and pre/post-natal care. 

    Outside of her work, she spends her time renovating her house with her husband, exploring Nova Scotia, and traveling to visit her family in Minnesota.



  • Matthew Bernard
    Registered Massage Therapist

    Speaks: English

    After discovering at a young age how relaxing and stress relieving massage can be, Matthew realized that a career in the health care industry, where he got to work with his hands, was where he needed to be. After graduating the Massage Therapy Diploma Program at the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy in 2003, he began his career in the spa industry, which led to the study of Ayurvedic medicine and training in Reiki and Hot Stone Therapy.

    After making the move to more clinical settings, Matt quickly realized that people benefit greatly from a blended approach of east meets west and now practices a style of deep tissue massage that can target specific issues when necessary, but does so in a way to keep the body as relaxed and balanced as possible.



  • Katie Furlong
    Kinesiologist

    Speaks: French

    As a senior kinesiologist and 5th year student at the Canadian College of Osteopathy, Katie is excited to start offering manual therapy sessions at the clinic. She will perform myofascial/soft tissue techniques, gentle joint mobilizations, cranial sacral techniques, and muscle energy techniques to treat a wide range of ailments such as: headaches, back pain, scar restrictions, etc. Through these sessions, Katie will be expanding her education and practice while aiming to improve the health and well-being of her patients. 

    Katie has finished all the course-work for her five-year osteopathic program and is currently awaiting the completion of her final exams and final case report in the fall, whereafter she will become our newest Osteopathic Manual Practitioner. For this reason, her manual therapy sessions $50 (taxes included) but are unable to be billed through private medical insurance nor other funders such as WBC or MVA.

    We are very excited to help her transition from manual therapy student to eventual osteopathic practitioner!
