Incontinence: I Laughed so Hard the Tears Ran Down my Legs !

Kirsten Stalberg
As a physiotherapist with special interest and training in women’s health, I wanted to write a short article about a condition which many women are affected by: incontinence. There is much embarrassment and shame surrounding this very common problem, and I feel it is time to help this topic out of its proverbial closet. So, let’s get down to the nitty gritty and answer a few questions some of you may have. What is incontinence? Urinary incontinence is defined as any involuntary loss of any amount of urine that is sufficient to be a problem. My professional opinion is that any unwanted loss of urine is a problem, and although it is a common condition, it is NOT a normal process of aging.


X, “Y” or Z Yoga How does one decide?

Corinne Skrobot
What makes one type of yoga different from the others? Why the popularity with Yoga? How does one make a choice for one type of yoga over the next? With 22 years as a Physiotherapist, and training through the Iyengar system of yoga, I encourage most of my clients to attend an Iyengar yoga class in order to obtain thorough instruction and correction by a trained teacher. My physiotherapy practice is strongly influenced by Iyengar training and my yoga teaching integrates my training in physiotherapy and osteopathic medicine. Iyengar yoga is one of the few yoga disciplines requiring a minimum of five years of training...

They were created for, and by, men: monks, rabbis, yogis, priests and the like. The men who wanted to support their vows of chastity, celibacy, poverty, obedience….very different reasons than why we, in this present time, would want to take up a meditation practice...

What can a Registered Massage Therapist provide for you?

Matt Thompson
As I’ve embarked on my new career as a Registered Massage Therapist (RMT) I’ve been surprised by how little the general public truly understands exactly what a licensed RMT can offer from a treatment standpoint, and the difference between a Registered Massage Therapist and some of the other massage practitioners the public can choose from today. RMTs are licensed health care practitioners with a provincial governing body and receive up to 3000 hours (this equates to 2.5 years straight) of education in orthopaedic and physiologic health sciences. We must pass a rigorous written and practical provincial registration exam before becoming a fully licensed Registered Massage Therapist (RMT).
