The main purpose of Be In Motion Physiotherapy is to provide high quality treatment in the form of physiotherapy, which is the use of special exercise to stimulate the musculoskeletal, circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems. Therapists work extensively to complete an assessment of each patient in order to determine the best course of action. Therapists review patient's health history, pain, strength, joint range of motion, reflexes, and sensation in order to accurately diagnose the problem, and determine the next steps for patients.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body, generally intended to reduce stress and fatigue while improving circulation. It is the manipulation of superficial and deep layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance function, aid in the healing process, and promote relaxation and well-being.

The many variations of massage account for several different techniques. These various types include deep tissue massage, Bowen therapy, Myofascial release massage, craniosacral therapy, reflexology massage, hot stone massage, Swedish massage, Trigger point therapy and Visceral manipulation.

Hot Stone Therapy involves the movement of stones over the body to release the tissue uses heat. Please inform the front desk in advance if you wish a hot stone massage because our therapist Tavia needs time to prepare the stones.

Deep Tissue Massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is not uncommon for receivers of DTM to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two.

Myofascial Release Techiques or Massage refers to the manual massage technique for stretching the fascia and releasing bonds between fascia, integument and muscles with the goal of elimination pain, increasing range of motion and equolibrioception. It involves applying shear compression or tension in various directions, or by rolling the skin.

Swedish Massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking.

Trigger Point Therapy involves deactivating trigger points that may cause local pain or refer pain and other sensations, such as headaches, in other parts of the body. Trigger points were first discovered by Janet Travell and David Simons.

Visceral Manipulation is used to improve the mobility of the visceral organs of the body.

Athletic Therapy

Be In Motion has the privilege of working with two members of the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association (CATA). Brian Empey is a Registered and Advanced Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapist, and a Certified Athletic Therapist. He specializes in sports medicine and manual therapy. Randy Foster is a Certified Athletic Therapist, and has worked with Gymnastics Canada and the Toronto Argonauts, who won the 2004 Gray Cup. Both of the Certified Athletic Therapists are responsible for assessing athlete injuries and conditions, and then utilizing contemporary rehabilitative methods to prepare the individual for safe reintegration into an active lifestyle. The goal of Athletic Therapy is to maximize the performance and well being of patients with active lifestyles.


Attributed to the Ancient Chinese, acupuncture is the use of needles inserted into specific points in the body in order to realize a therapeutic effect. Multiple staff members are certified to practice acupuncture. Acupuncture is safe and effective, and most often results in less pain, a better mood, and improved function. Acupuncture is often a wonderful alternative when traditional medicine has failed or is not preferred.

Craniosacral Therapy

During Craniosacral Therapy, therapists place their hands on the patient, which allows them to tune into the patient's craniosacral system. Therapists gently work with the spine, which can relieve pressure in the skull, cranial sutures, diaphragm, and can ease the movement of cerebrospinal fluid.

Baseline Concussion Testing

Be In Motion now offers pre-season or mid season baseline concussion testing.


Laser Therapy

Be In Motion physiotherapists utilize the Laser Therapy method, which uses a low-energy light to stimulate mitochondria, which can result in beneficial chemical reactions in effected areas.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy creates microtrauma to injured areas in order to promote new blood flow, and to remind the brain to heal the effected area. When new blood flow is stimulated by Shockwave Therapy, muscle tissue growth is promoted, and healing can begin or increase. Besides new tissue growth, the brain may also "forget" about an injured area, in which case Shockwave Therapy reminds the brain to heal the area.


"Be In Motion Physiotherapy came highly recommended to our family when our daughter started experiencing injuries while competing in Irish Dancing.

Being a runner for over 20 years and finishing over 50 marathons, including 4 Boston Marathons as well as 35 Ultra marathons, running was starting to take its toll on my body. A few years ago I had a hamstring injury and nothing I was doing on my own seemed to help the pain. I decided to go to Be in Motion for diagnosis and treatment. I was very impressed with the professionalism, experience of the staff and the state of art equipment. I was quickly diagnosed and was able to return to running, pain free in no time. They advised me of proper stretching methods to avoid any further injury and I incorporated regular massage therapy as part of my routine.
The clinic has become my “go to” place for any pains that may arise during my marathon training. I can always count on being treated accurately and professionally.
I would highly recommend Be in Motion Physiotherapy."
Henry Van Gemert
"Tavia would not be an Irish dancer attending the world championship without Be in Motion. The entire family has attended therapy at one point because of the care we all receive at the clinic. We would drive from Guelph to Oakville because of the care we all received at Be in Motion." I continue to travel from Collingwood to be treated at the clinic.
Phil Caplan

"Brian Empey and his staff are terrific therapists and human beings. We have known Brian and his family for over 17 years.

Be In Motion Physiotherapy deals with a wide range of age groups from young children to older seniors like ourselves. They also deal with all types of conditions from sports injuries to automobile accidents."
