First visit? Be sure to choose the Initial Assessment appointment option!

Please note that we have a STRICT 48-hour cancellation policy

Your appointment time is reserved just for you. A late cancellation or missed visit leaves a hole in your therapists’ day that could have been filled by another patient. As such, we require 48-hours notice for any cancellations or changes to your appointment. Patients who provide less than 48 hours notice, will be charged a cancellation fee up to the full price of their appointment. Honouring our cancellation policy is a courtesy that lets us know we are respected members of your healthcare network.

UPDATED JULY 2022 - Masks are no longer required in Ontario health care settings - that being said, we respect everybody’s decision to wear a mask or not. If you arrive at our clinic wearing a mask, your therapist will wear one too. You can also indicate your preference in your General Intake Form, prior to your appointment. Screening and sanitations measures will remain in place for the foreseeable future.

To stay in touch, sign up for our newsletter, and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

Everyone says it, but we know it’s true: We have the best clients!

Physiotherapists work with clients of all ages and with a wide range of health conditions. Whether it’s pain management and rehabilitation from an acute injury like a sprained ankle, or management of chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, a physiotherapist can help. But physiotherapy is not limited to rehabilitation of injury and the effects of disease or disability. A physiotherapist also provides education and advice for health promotion, disease and injury prevention.


Chiropractic

The Ontario Chiropractic Association defines chiropractic as a “non-invasive, hands-on health care discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors practice a manual approach, providing diagnosis, treatment and preventive care for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, nervous system and joints.”

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance. In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerv... Read More

Acupuncture is a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance. In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body's natural painkillers.
Each practitioner who performs acupuncture has a unique style, often blending aspects of Eastern and Western approaches to medicine. Acupuncture at Whole Therapy is performed by our Registered Physiotherapists and Doctors of Chiropractic.

What is EFT and how does it work?

EFT is a series of techniques to allow the conscious and unconscious mind to communicate in a safe environment using simple acupressure points and cognitive techniques. These allow the practitioner and client to work together to remove the negative emotional burden from thoughts and memories.

When experiencing negative thoughts or reactions the subconscious mind links emotional responses to all previous negative events which seem related. This often triggers puzzling self-sabotage patterns or fight, flight or freeze reactions which seem far out of proportion to the actual situation.

Neurologically, when researchers connected EFT practitioners and their clients up to EEGs to record their brain waves, they found that once well into the session, both displayed brain activity typical of highly skilled meditators. Both practitioner and client are wide awake and in complete control of themselves during sessions, but their minds are in a meditative state. This allows for a unique and tremendously effective dialogue between the subconscious and the conscious mind while the use of special acupressure points bleeds away the emotional charge around traumatic or painful memories, experiences and associated emotions.

During sessions clients learn to use many of these tools to improve their daily lives. EFT is beneficial both for current experiences and as a daily habit to continue processing the backlog of not fully reprocessed negative life experiences.

I love my job because: I get to help clients heal and move on from events, traumas and negative core beliefs keeping them stuck or in emotional pain. My twenty five years` experience with a wide range of modalities allows me to choose with my clients, the plan most likely to benefit them; even if years of therapy have not yet fully resolved their emotional pain points or blockages.

See me if: You feel stuck or can`t move on from something. Or you experience stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, trauma, guilt, grief, and shame, self-sabotage, fear of public speaking, painful memories, PTSD, phobias, emotional eating /cravings, fear of failure, fear of success, imposter syndrome or procrastination.

Some of my most powerful work involves the use of advanced Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Picture Tapping Techniques (PPT), Grounding, Pulsed Magnetic Resonance Stimulation (a class II registered medical device), audio/visual brain entrainment and anti-inflammatory protocols.

All the resources I use have been so powerful they’re guaranteed. This means we can relax and concentrate on recovery without fretting over whether it’s a hopeless waste of money. Spending seventeen years on the research side, has given me an unusual birds eye view of how every part of our being is connected with and interacts with every other; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

I believe: The mind, body and spirit have a remarkable ability to heal. Sometimes they just need a bit of skilled and compassionate support and direction.

About Me

Dr. Jesse Robazza was born and raised in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, and is a graduate of New York Chiropractic College where he received his doctor of chiropractic in 2020. Before this, he graduated from Laurentian University where he obtained his Masters degree in Human Kinetics and his Bachelors degree in Physical and Health Education.

Having been a personal trainer and playing competitive sports his entire life, Dr. Robazza became fascinated with the human body and what it is capable of. He applied this passion into becoming a chiropractor, where he treated both athletes as well as the general public during his clinical years. While at school, Dr. Robazza also became certified in Whole Foods Nutrition, Sport Science and Human Performance, and Instrument-Assisted ConnecTX Therapy.

Along with specializing in chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Robazza further specializes in Neurofunctional Acupuncture, which is a form of acupuncture that uses a therapeutic electrical stimulation to help decrease pain and tightness, increase muscle activation, and increase joint mobility by directly stimulating the nervous system. Acupuncture is also a great form of therapy to help reduce stress and anxiety, decrease cortisol, rebalance the nervous system, and increase immune function.

It is in the interest of every patient that their doctor treats them as a whole – not only by looking at what is causing pain, but looking at other issues such as stress, sleep, nutrition, exercise, previous injuries, and their overall health. Dr. Robazza uses these approaches when treating his patients so that they can get back to playing sports, being active, being pain-free, and enjoying life.

Dr. Robazza Believes…

An important aspect of care is that patients’ time, health and well-being, and their ability to enjoy life pain-free, are key components that are tailored into their treatment.

Treating his patients effectively, by using quality chiropractic and neurofunctional care, will get them the greatest results the quickest.

I love my job because

Time and time again I’ve seen my clients get their lives back because of the strength and resilience that exercise fosters. Nothing makes me happier than getting to play a meaningful role in enriching my client’s lives.

An intentional exercise plan can help you move past nagging injuries that previously held you back and can broaden your horizons as a result of your new-found strength and self-confidence. Most injuries heal in relatively short periods of time and yet our symptoms can sometimes be “sticky”, lasting far beyond the time of healing. In these cases, exercise can be a particularly powerful rehabilitative modality.

See me if you

  • Have been in and out of clinics with persistent pain that has been unresponsive common modalities
  • Have recently gotten injured and wish to return to sport / your normal activities efficiently
  • Want to start exercising but wish to do so with the guidance of a coach to remain pain-free,
  • Have special needs that require a tailored approach.

I believe

That we are far more capable than we give ourselves credit, and I believe in your ability to heal.

I love my job because: I love to solve problems, and I find the human body fascinating. I became a personal trainer first, but I never knew how to deal with all of my clients’ sore knees, backs, and shoulders. I needed more education about the body and how it worked. Massage Therapy gave me the tools I needed to not only work the body out, but also to treat and prevent injuries. I graduated in 2006, and I still love every minute!

See me if: You want to resolve your pain, maintain your muscles, and prevent future injuries. I like to help you understand what is going on with your body, and why it is happening. Helping you gain clarity and insight into your body’s language not only empowers you in your own body, but it also helps you prevent future injury and pain.

I believe: That pain-free is absolutely possible. As well, massage doesn’t have to hurt to work. In order for muscles to release, there has to be oxygen flowing, and one must be able to relax. If the pressure on the muscle is too intense, it’s counter-productive. My goal for my clients is to have them be a little tender after a massage… not feel like a truck ran them over.

Qualifications and Courses: Craniosacral Level 1 (2014) Reiki Practitioner (2005 & 2014) Selective Functional Movement Assessment (2013) Orthotics Level 1 (2013) Myofascial Release – Full Body (2012) Bachelor of Health Sciences (2012) Registered Massage Therapist (2006) Can Fit Pro Certified Personal Trainer (2000)

I love my job because: I get to help improve the quality of peoples lives by helping them move better, and to be a more pain-free version of themselves. I get to help people to become able to experience more things in life. I get to help them get to a physical level that maybe they didn’t think they could get to, to get them back into the sports they didn’t think they could play. I get to help them lose weight and feel better about themselves, I get to empower them, teach them to know how they can manage their bodies and that health and fitness is not this crazy mystical thing that only certain people can achieve.

See me if: I want to see everyone about everything ha-ha! My insatiable desire for knowledge doesn’t allow for anything else. It doesn’t matter if you’re an athlete with a broken ‘piece’, if you’re just learning to run and you need guidance, or if you’re someone who’s been injured, and you don’t feel like yourself anymore. Even if you just have a general question, please come find me. People who already work with trainers or who have in the past, if you’ve been frustrated with lack of progress; these are just a few of the things I’d love to and can help you with.

I believe: People can take control of their bodies. That the ability to both understand and manipulate their bodies to create a better quality of life for themselves is 100% possible for anyone and everyone!

I love my job because: Helping others is what I love the most. As an elite level athlete, I have the understanding of how massage therapy fits into athletic therapy and training cycles. I also have experienced first hand severe whiplash and concussion. This unfortunate injury has allowed me to see through the eyes of my clients and provide them with a safe and nurturing environment to help them heal.

See me if: You want to alleviate headaches, maintain healthy muscle tissue and prevent further injury. Allow me to provide you with the knowledge and body awareness it takes to heal. Not only will I provide you with the tools to help you recover, but I will also work with you to help prevent future pain. I am a firm believer that motion is lotion, and that by inspiring you to work towards your own healthy life choices, that pushes me to be the best therapist that I can be.

I believe: That being mindful of our bodies will allow us to live a better, more well-rounded life. When we are aware and knowledgeable of what our bodies need, we can then work towards achieving optimal performance. Massage therapy allows us to feel and become aware of our needs, both in a general wellness and therapeutic setting. This is a great start to giving the body what it needs to be strong and healthy.

Love to treat: Deep Tissue, Acute injuries, Post-concussion

I love my job because:

I became very invested in growing my skill set by learning and understanding the body better through wanting to help family members suffering from multiple conditions. It fills my heart with warmth knowing that I get to make a difference and help so many individuals with their healing process. I take pride in guiding my clients to become more educated, healthy and mindful by expanding on where the pain is coming from and how we can fix it. Whether it’s through touch, making them bodily aware of their posture, guiding them into the right direction with home care or alleviating any pain/discomfort that may be affecting their active daily living. I can confidently say that there is nothing more rewarding than seeing all the smiling faces of clients that have experienced and feel the improvement.

  • You are experiencing radiating pain or maybe just have an annoying ache that just won’t ease.
