Why Choose Physiotherapy at Axis Therapy in Scarborough
I started seeing Dr. Oh earlier in the year for chiropractic and have since also started seeing Rex for FST and Erika for acupuncture/cupping. They are all AMAZING and I'm so glad I found Axis Therapy as there are so many great therapists and offer so many different treatment options!
Axis is a one stop stop for all of my physical wellness needs. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming and most importantly professional.I've worked with various staff but Dr. Lim (chiropractor) has been amazing. I started going to her for chronic neck and back pain and for my first time in years I no longer have pain and can finally sleep through the night.I'm looking forward to continuing with maintenance treatments so I can maintain how great I feel.
I have just recently been seeing Dr. Oh regarding my neck pain/tightness and so far so good. He’s been able to pin point the problem and given me great adjustments and exercises to help the area. Staff is always friendly and the office is always clean and inviting.
Absolutely love going to Axis and being treated by Anker. Anker is extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly & passionate. She maximizes my sessions with various treatment styles and I always leave feeling extremely relaxed. I have also noticed a huge improvement in back issues. I would definitely recommend going to Axis and booking an appointment with Anker!
Having never seen a chiro before and hating massages, I went into see Dr. Tiffany for some back issues. She was the absolute best! She was very calm and patient in addressing my needs and let me take time to get comfortable. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who is just curious at the least to check her out!
Only second time with Rohan and going to Axis but I’m happy I’ve found him. My Quadricep Tendon Rupture surgery was not one that’s done everyday. Rohan works with knee patients, expertly, knowledgeably and is very thorough & patient.I would feel more comfortable though leaving my appointments with a handout as a reminder of my daily exercises with instructions. This would ensure I don’t forget them and the proper way to do them.
Highly recommend Dr Tiff Lim, she takes the time to hear your needs and very informative with my treatment. She also does ortho and helped with my plantar fasciitis, from the exercises and insoles. Always a great experience!
Poor experience with anker. Appointments became more and more stale after each visit. I didn't like being left in the room with needles in me for 99% of the time and then charged a premium rate. My injury also did not get resolved. The facility is nice and modern, reception is warm and welcoming, and other therapists have been great, but I initially came for the number of great reviews and how well the company is active on Instagram, thinking this place was different from the other rehab clinics. I have gone to places where they just use machines or assistants who don't really do anything but milk your insurance in a money hungry way. If this is how each appointment is now, and this is the direction the company is going in then i would recommend going somewhere else.
Kat is awesome and takes the time to understand what’s been going on before the session starts to target what needs the most attention. She’s super personable and makes u feel comfortable. the staff all around has been a pleasure to deal with.
Had fascial therapy with Rex today. Feel soo much better!! Rex is very attentive and personable while still maintaining his professionalism. He takes the time to explain everything and gives you stretching suggestions after the session.
I saw Erika at axis for acupuncture and cupping. When I tell you I felt like a noodle after this treatment LOL. Everything that normally feels tight was so relaxed. She was very informative and caring towards my issues. I can’t wait to go back. I would strongly recommend this treatment to any athlete.
Rohan is really good and knows what hes doing. I have acl reconstruction and on my first day it already made a difference. Definitely recommend.Its been almost 3 and a half weeks and Rohan has helped me with my leg strength and im almost back to walking!
I've been getting treated by Anker at Axis Therapy for a few weeks now, and she's definitely been great with helping reduce my knee pain. The facility is well equipped, very clean, and the booking system is efficient. Highly recommend for anyone needing treatment of any kind.
I was looking for a new RMT in the area. My first experience at Axis was great.Rupal was thorough and professional. I felt relief after my first massage. She worked her magic and gave me some helpful exercise and stretching tips.The office is modern and the staff was pleasant. Looking forward to my next session…
Great experience at Axis Therapy & Performance! I see Kat for massage therapy and she always does such amazing work! All the staff including the front desk are highly knowledgable, helpful and friendly! I will continue to come to Axis for treatment and highly recommend!
I had the pleasure of working with Pha-ly for the last couple of weeks after a sports knee injury , and I can't recommend her enough! Her friendly demeanor and extensive knowledge instantly puts me at ease. She was not only approachable but also very down to earth, making every session enjoyable. Thanks to her expertise and knowledge , the injury to my knee is now on the path to recovery. If you're looking for a skilled and personable physiotherapist, Pha-ly is the one to go to! She’s great 🙂
I had a chiropractic appointment with Dr. David Oh Yesterday and had a very positive experience. Dr. Oh took the time to evaluate my concerns and provided adjustments. My pain level decreased after the first visit, and I received feedback and tools to minimize pain. My time at the clinic was very relaxing and educational. The front desk staff was terrific.I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Oh and would highly recommend Dr. Oh & Axis to anyone looking for chiropractic services. My family and coworkers have already scheduled appointments with Dr. Oh, as I can't stop talking about the outstanding assistance I received at Axis.
It was always a good feeling after the treatment by Dr. David Oh. Doctor David is very professional and knowledgeable person. I’m already seeing a lot of improvement of my pain. His assessment and treatment is really praiseworthy. I would highly recommend Axis Therapy & Dr. David who is looking for chiropractic services.
I stumbled across Axis on Google some months back. I am someone who likes pressure- lots of it. I get that from the staff at Axis plus more. Everyone you interact with is friendly and they do an excellent job at making you feel relaxed and comfortable. My go to guy is Gary. If you can handle pressure, he is your guy. I just had a 60 minute session today and although I wanted to "tap out" mid way, I had to hold it in. It's a bitter sweet feeling. Highly recommend these guys. You will not be disappointed
David has been an amazing chiropractor for my partner and his herniated disk. He’s been very kind and thoughtful on a personal level, but very honest and professional when it comes to the pain. His recommendations and treatments have been realistic and working well, and he is also very receptive to our concerns and feedbacks. Highly recommend Dr. David Oh 👍👍👍👍👍
Just started massage therapy with Andrew at Axis a couple of weeks ago and so far it has been an amazing experience! Andrew has been really attentive and thorough with relieving my problem areas. He's very informative and I appreciate that he always explains the reasoning for each specific treatment. Overall all of the staff have been very welcoming and helpful which makes the entire experience seamless. I would definitely recommend Andrew and Axis to anyone looking for professional and high quality treatment!
I am very thankful for all the amazing staff at Axis that help with my mobility and keep my body healthy to perform. Rex and Carolyn listen to my needs and understand what is required to help me achieve the range of motion or movement required. The staff are all friendly and supportive and go above and beyond to meet your needs. Thanks Axis!!
I was very impressed with Axis! I didn't know what to expect prior to my first visit, but was very pleasantly surprised. The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. The specialists are very professional, thorough and extremely easy to work with. The results of their work is fantastic! It's evident that they really care about their clients! 1000% would recommend them!
Phenomenal care with Andrew over at Axis Therapy and Performance. Andrew was able to target the various areas that contributed to my muscle soreness associated with sports, training, and work ergonomics. He was professional, attentive, informative, and thorough with his treatment. It was a great experience, and I look forward to future treatments and tune ups. I highly recommend Andrew at Axis.
My wife has been going for acupuncture/massage because of the pain in her legs. Had been to other services before and finds Axis Therapy thru Erica doing an excellent job as the pain is slowly going away. Will continue my visit with them.
Have been going to this clinic for Physiotherapy since almost a year and it has been an overall an awesome experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the clinic is always clean. My physiotherapist is Uravi Shah and she is great at what she is doing. She always shows me new ways to strengthen my back as well as massaging tense areas to help me relax. Always looking forward to my appointments. Would highly recommend this clinic.
My first time having stretch therapy. I love it! My body is going to benefit so much from these treatments. Rex really knows his stuff and he’s super nice too. Axis is a very professional clinic. Highly recommend.
Incredible!!!! I went to Axis unsure of the source of my pain, and Kat helped me feel brand-new and like myself again. She made me feel incredibly at ease. She was really professional, extremely knowledgable, and she thoroughly explained everything she was doing. She gave me a few tips along with stretches and exercises to do while I wait for my next appointment. I highly recommend coming here! (Axis - Scarborough location)
From front desk to all the staff at Axis Therapy & Performance they are extremely helpful and nice. Customer service is professional and exceptional. I have been under the care of Dr. Uravi Shah she is compassionate, understanding, and hands on. Dr. Shah takes time to listen to your needs and understand them well. You will never see her leave the room to assist other clients while treating one. From start to the end of the session Dr. Shah is with her clients. I am completely satisfied with the treatment from Dr. Shah and with the overall clinic.
I have been working with Dr. David Oh at Axis Therapy and Performance now for approximately 6 months. I like to take my time to do a review as a lot a of times only time tells how the relationship between practitioners and patients will develop.This case is different, I took my time as I wanted to do a review that did justice to Dr. Oh' performance.I'm rather grateful and simply impressed with he way he approaches health care and the way he supports you champions you in order for you to get better in more than one way when it comes to your well being.A very warm special thanks to Dr. oh and all of the team at Axis Therapy and Performance. If this is the way health care is being handled we have a good future ahead on getting healthier and better as people. Thanks again!With kind regards,RC.
Axis Therapy is amazing!! Staff are kind and wonderful! They are very organized and set reminders for you, and do their best to schedule you in when convenient. I've been seeing Pha-Ly Ho for a couple physiotherapy sessions and she is amazing. She knows what she's doing and is phenomenal at what she does. Highly recommend Axis Therapy, will definitely be my go to moving forward!!!
I've been seeing Gary the past year for massage (RMT) and Rohan recently for physiotherapy. Both are very professional, knowledgeable and attentive to my concerns. I always leave happy.Booking an appointment is really convenient online. Haven't had any issues with processing of insurance.Parking outside can be limited during the middle of the day but I am usually able to get a spot fairly quickly.I would definitely recommend this clinic!
If you're looking for a Physiotherapist, I highly recommend Axis!First of all, the place looks very clean and newly renovated. The front desk staff are very kind and helpful, such as setting up appointments and for insurance claims.For the past couple weeks I have been working with Anker to achieve my physio goals. She is extremely knowledgeable and very passionate about her work! I have definitely noticed an improvement after just a couple of sessions with her help.
I'm so happy my husband found Axis Therapy & Performance! The people at Axis Therapy are amazing. So kind, considerate, funny, knowledgeable in their field, and provide really great advice for issues you are having. They explain in detail the process they take and ask all the questions needed to help you better. They are so great that I have recommended others to go to Axis Therapy.
The team at Axis therapy is absolutely exceptional. Any time I have to book or re book an appointment there are never any problems. Since I first started seeing the team, I have had a few minor injured all of which have been resolved due to their excellent treatment. From cupping, acupuncture, massages, and tips to take home after your session, not only do I feel better but I feel stronger and more able bodied. I highly recommend Axis therapy.
Great experience with Axis. Every time I phone the office, right away someone will pick up the call. It is so easy to book the appointments! I love their online booking option, straightforward, timely reminders, easy to find the service availabilities, extremely flexible to reschedule, you can put yourself on the waitlist if you wish to see a specific staff. All the staffs are very professional, I always feel so relaxed when I leave the office.Everyone is so nice on the team, I always feel welcomed! I would 100% recommend my family and friends!
The front team is a dream. They’re very pleasant & helpful, greeting everyone upon entry. The space is nice & clean— very sleek decor with nice touches of greenery.Parking is generous with a super easy registration process.I see Rex for fascial stretch therapy. He’s super knowledgeable & great at communicating what’s happening throughout the treatment in ways that I understand. I’m super grateful for the mobility homework he gives me. I work from home & spend most of my day sitting. I strength train regularly, but the assessment & tools I receive from Rex really help my to excel in my mobility goals.Thanks, Rex!
Carolyn did a great job in tending to the specific area I had trouble with in my back while also getting rid of other tight spots I wasn’t aware of. Beyond the massage itself, we had great conversation over the other services Axis offers that will be beneficial as well as tips for stretching and overall conditioning so I can be my best self when I go back to work. Definitely will be coming back!
I absolutely love this place, it is the best the people are great. They are so friendly, warm and welcoming. They make you so comfortable you want to come back. They had me laughing for like 7 minutes straight one day. The services they provide are phenomenal, they are very professional and know what they're doing every time I leave I feel very good and relaxed. Very clean environment. I will always use their services. I highly recommend Axis.
I’ve been visiting the team at Axis for a few months now to see a chiropractor, for cupping, and for acupuncture. It’s truly made a significant difference in my healing process and have tremendous confidence in the abilities of the team. The Riverdale clinic is absolutely beautiful and very clean. Highly recommend!
A second-to-none experience. Front desk is hospitable and very friendly! I’ve done a few appointments with Emma and she is absolutely fantastic. Very knowledgeable in her expertise and solved my chronic back-pain within just a session. Wish I had an extra thumb to give it three thumbs up, two isn’t enough
Can't recommend this place enough! Erika is amazing at what she does & does a phenomenal job of targeting areas that need attention. Really recommend her services - the cupping, body work & acupuncture trifecta is a perfect combination and I look forward to each visit. Additionally, everyone I've encountered at Axis is very friendly and easy to chat with; overall, a wonderful atmosphere to be a part of.
Absolutely love this place.Have done several FST and Deep Tissue sessions with Rex. He is fantastic and has the best hair line. Guarantee you’ll be taken care of.Update: Rex is unreal. Wow. Does not get enough credit for the work he does. Where immense knowledge meets application. You are the best.
Always a 10/10 experience at Axis. The front desk staff is super friendly and helpful. I have been going for acupuncture/cupping/massage with Erika for my back pain. She really cares about my concerns and takes her time with me. She is also super knowledgable and hilarious. I feel amazing after my treatments. I tell all my friends and family to go see her!! I highly recommend!
Emma gave me one of the best massages I've ever had. We discussed my problem areas before starting and I was surprised at how intuitive she was. I felt the full effects of the one-hour deep tissue massage and was sad to see the time was already up! Very impressed overall 🙂
My Genuine Review for Axis Therapy:This was my first visit to Axis and I don't mind going back there for my future treatments for following reasons:First of all, the people. Everyone is so professional and welcoming.They make you feel at home.I went there to treat my foot pain. I was having very bad foot pain.so I decided to try massage therapy. I booked a session with Emma Woodhouse to try the therapy for the very first time and i don't regret my decision. I am very much impressed with her massage therapy sessions. Emma is very professional , very knowledgeable and knows her job very well.Within just 3 sessions she managed to reduce my foot pain to great extent. She also gave me some excercises which is helping me a lot.I can definitely recommend Emma to everyone.Secondly, I liked the Place and Ambience.This place is so professionally managed and designed ( I really liked the hanging plants at the waiting area ).Its super clean and make you feel fresh on every visit.Definitely worth visiting.
I have been fortunate to visit Axis Therapy and Performance on a regular basis for over 4 years and have always been pleased with their exceptional service. From a warm greeting at the door, to very specific and detailed treatments from the lovely therapists, I know I’m in good hands! I am a VERY HAPPY regular.M. Mekni
My girlfriend and I had a great experience at Axis. I am a physiotherapy student and I already know where I will be applying once I graduate! The customer experience from the initial call to the front desk and to the therapist is flawless and seamless. I felt like they actually cared and was taken care of every step of the way. I love that they don't use machines or send me off to assistants. The hands on approach has helped me more than what the other clinics provided me. I also love the vibe of the space and the team, they clearly all love what they do, have fun, and speak highly of each other. I have been to other clinics like Myodetox or Evolve, and although they are great and have a similar model, its the customer care from the front desk, positive environment, and the quick results my gf and I received that would put Axis above the rest. I would give more stars if I could. I have already highly recommend Axis Therapy & Performance to my friends and family.
First time going to Axis. Emma has some magical hands!! She was able to identify the root cause of my pain! Emma made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. After my session, I felt great! Highly recommend Emma for RMT. Lady at front desk was so kind! Will definitely return! Also not to mention, Emma is 😍!
I’ve had a few injuries and physical issues in my lifetime and I also had some physiotherapists and chiropractors attend to me and my needs. I have to say Dr. Tiffany has been a rare combo of getting the best medical help I can get plus an absolute awesome personality to come with it. Its just great to receive one of the best medical attention out there and couple it with that fun personality that makes you comfortable and eager to come back for more. It takes away the natural fear of seeking medical help … and that itself if awesome … Thanks Dr. Tiffany, Thanks Axis
Had an amazing massage experience with Emma! I prefer heavy pressure for my massages, I get deep tissue and Emma did not disappoint! She was able to hit all the necessary spots to relieve tension in my body. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Dr.Lim(b) - pun intended- is amazing.She’s incredibly patient and you get a real sense that she not only cares about you as a patient, but also you as a person.After every session I feel encouraged and excited to for what exercises and goals that she sets for me to help myself!I’ve finally found a chiropractor that actually does their job diligently and is caring.
Staff are so welcoming and friendly. An easygoing environment that is clean and well maintained. Received FST with Rex and was not disappointed. He always makes sure that I am comfortable and is super attentive during every appointment I've been to. I'm feeling stronger, flexible and now able to do more and get more out of my workouts.
Axis is the place to go! Be it for Teens, Young Adults, Adults, All Age Range! My family has had great experience with the multiple services they offer. I have been going to Axis for over a year, and can say that the staff is amazing; friendly, helpful, supportive, professional and understanding! A great environment to get treated!
I found Axis by searching top rated clinic of this kind and I am so glad that I tried it. With so many good reviews, I am sure that they are all wonderful professionals, and I started with Dr. Edward and wow, he was amazing! I didn't feel the need to ask a lot of questions as I could feel that I was in good hands. Dr. Edward is an awesome chiropractor, he knows what he does, truly professional. Front desk staff is very friendly and pleasant. And of course, the clinic is very clean. Great experience!
I love this place. It’s my Go To. Dr. Ed is wonderful and so is the rest of the team. I’ve been doing accupuncture on my ankle due to swelling and Dr. Ed is simply amazing. He’s so nice and welcoming, and very educated. He makes you feel very comfortable. The entire staff is awesome as well. They answer any questions in regards to insurance which is really helpful.Thank you guys for everything ☺️
