Our Team

Anjali Sarna
Physiotherapist/ Owner

Good day all!  My journey as a Physiotherapist though super eventful has been thoroughly rewarding.  Born and Raised in New Delhi, India I moved to the United Kingdom for my post-graduation where I specialized in Neuro Musculoskeletal  Health care.  With an overall therapy experience spanning over 15 years, I have worked in both Clinics and large Specialty hospitals since graduating with a special interest in Orthopedic/sports injuries.

I am a certified Pelvic Health Therapist (Level 3) and am also proficient in Dry needling,  Mckenzie (Lumbar spine),  Manual therapy, and SFMA techniques (Selective functional movement assessment). One of the most amazing aspects of my profession is that  I derive my motivation from the very challenges I face at a daily level.  

As a physiotherapist, it is so fulfilling when you watch your patients regain their lives back because of your efforts. Every Job profile involves some end result for the efforts invested, but for a physical therapist, the result can be as amazing as a young soccer or hockey player recovering from a bad injury that could have had a long-term impact on his active life.  

I consider myself fortunate to have this opportunity to truly make a difference in someone’s life every single day through evidence-based treatments. I have a very keen interest in Meditation and Yoga.  Meditation is one of the most beautiful and relaxing and ‘underrated’ wellness activities known to us and it's also my favorite topic of conversation.  I always look forward to improving my skills as an expert therapist and have future aspirations to set up a charity organization in an underdeveloped country to improve health awareness.

David Rybie
Massage Therapist

I started my massage journey in a more non-conventional way than most, through karate. I started karate at the age of five years old and ended up competing internationally as a teenager. I started teaching karate as a way to continue educating people the discipline and respect involved in the practice. While teaching I noticed the strain practicing martial arts put on my students and wanted to help them address those issues, which led me to learn massage.

While I was at school, through my training, I learned that I could help more people through massage than just my students. I graduated from CDI College in 2018 and started volunteer work with the Edmonton Prospects baseball team. After the season, I took a job massaging full time, helping as many people as I could. Over the past 5 years I have developed a better understanding of the body and use what I learnt to control the depth of my massage.

I specialize in deep tissue, but I am able to read the muscle tension and any additional indicators to reduce or increase my pressure as needed. Additionally I also specialize in sports therapy, driven by my work with karate and volunteering. I also provide maternity, pre-natal, and post-natal massages as I believe less stress on the mother can help with a healthy child. In order to bring more benefits to my clients I have also taken courses in hot stones, cupping, and kinesio-taping and can incorporate as needed.
