Intrinsi is more than just a rehabilitation facility. Our clinic brings together a diverse team of osteopaths, physiotherapists and massage therapists who work together in a model of care that centers our focus on you, our clients.
We provide one-on-one sessions, which means our therapists serve only you for your appointment time. We want to ensure you get the most out of your time with us and we take the time to help you understand our clinical reasoning for treatments and the home exercises we prescribe.
We do not follow a rigid structure! Assessment and treatment intertwine. If your therapist believes you would benefit more from the particular treatment style of another therapist, they will team up to ensure you receive the most effective treatment.
Jon knew from a young age that he wanted to follow in his mum’s footsteps, watching her work as an occupational therapist. Meanwhile, Luke suffered a numbered of football (soccer) injuries, including recurrent shoulder subluxations, and sought physiotherapy for treatment. Luke was impressed by how his physio helped him get back on the field and inspired as well… his physiotherapist was legally blind and used a guide dog to get around.
The two met at university in Manchester and became fast friends in the way you would expect from a pair of British lads: on the football pitch. They soon discovered they shared the same feelings about their future profession– that knowledge is all very well but developing trusting relationships and making a true difference in people’s lives is just as (if not more) important.
After practicing for a few years, the pair shared their frustrations, discouraged by the lack of care they witnessed especially in the private sector. They agreed that the current model is often centered around the business’s bottom line rather than the client. Jon found that he made the biggest impact on clients when he worked with them one on one and saw how relieved clients were to receive personalized care. Luke felt like his level of skill was being held back by the structures he worked within.
The two decided to take a big leap, moving from the UK to Calgary where they took over Intrinsi and started their young families. They have an ongoing commitment to provide the level of care they believe everyone deserves. Swept up in the forward-thinking and positive attitude they associate with Calgarians, they now call this city home!
Exceptional Service – We provide outstanding care, challenging the status quo of rehabilitation and therapy in Calgary. We strive to earn the confidence of medical practitioners, becoming the go-to rehabilitation facility to refer patients in need of personalized care.
Collaboration – We continue to create a working environment where all staff feel valued and are encouraged to bring new knowledge, treatments, and perspectives to the team. At Intrinsi we are all part of a meaningful cause and push each other to be better each day both at work and in our personal lives/in the community, coming together to support one another.
Education – We strive for continual learning as practitioners, but another important goal is to educate our clients about their bodies and health… knowledge they can take into the future as they seek healthier, stronger, more vibrant lives.
Community – Intrinsi is a family place, where everyone is welcome, and everyone is heard. Our commitment to health doesn’t stop inside our walls– we are active in the community and walk our talk!
