Katie Drysdale  -  Physiotherapist Assistant

My name is Katie Drysdale and I am a Physiotherapist Assistant. I graduated with distinction from Conestoga College in 2005, successfully completing the Occupational Therapist Assistant/ Physiotherapist Assistant program. I was fortunate to find full-time employment as soon as I finished school and have been working in the field ever since.

I have experience working with all age groups and a wide variety of conditions in a clinical setting. Throughout my schooling I have also gained experience in orthopedics, sports injuries, and geriatric patients who suffer from the effects of stroke and dementia.

Anthony Tsilibanov  -  Registered Massage Therapist 

Anthony (Tony) is a Registered Massage Therapist. He graduated with honours from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy. Here is what Tony says for himself:

"The foundations of my 15 years of experience in the health-care industry resides mostly upon my work with special needs patients. My ability to adapt to different environments provided me with the opportunity to complete this work in personal residences, schools, group homes and in the community.

I have also worked as an Occupational Therapist Assistant at Toronto area hospital, which specializes in a long-term geriatric care. During my term in the hospital, I facilitated the recovery and rehabilitation of all patients residing there.

I believe that the extensive amount of experience I have obtained in my years working with patients and the disabled, as well as the importance I have placed upon furthering my medical education, makes me well suited to provide optimal care to you.

I am excited to be a team member of A Balanced Body Health Services and I am enthusiastic about providing the best care that I can for you."
