Sahil Tanna

Sahil Tanna
Physiotherapist
IMS Dry Needling Certified, Vestibular Rehabilitation, & Concussion Management

Sahil Tanna has always been passionate about the health industry and he selected physiotherapy as his profession to accomplish his priority goal in life of helping people in pain.

He was drawn to that career especially after he personally benefitted greatly from it at one point in his life.

“After being in a motorbike accident and getting help from another physiotherapist, I was already in a state of mind to consider this as my career in the health care field,” he said.

He achieved his Bachelor of Physiotherapy degree in India followed by his Exercise and Wellness Diploma in Victoria, B.C.

Sahil really enjoys the clinical side of being a physiotherapist and never wanted to just sit at a desk.

Today he says there are so many advances in his field that it keeps him on his toes to find new information and stay up-to-date.

He does that capably with an impressive continual learning program.

Already he has acquired certifications in IMS, Vestibular Assessment and Management, Functional Capacity Evaluation and Part A Lumbar Spine: Mckenzie Institute of Canada.

Currently he is also working on certification with the Fellow of Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy – FCAMPT Level 1.

Besides his knowledge and his experience in a broad range of physiotherapy, he has interest in vestibular therapy and falls prevention.

When Sahil is not working, he loves to play competitive cricket and recreational soccer. He also loves spending quality time with his toddler.

He also dedicates time to guide international physiotherapists like himself to have a better career in Canada.

Rebecca Appleton

Rebecca Appleton
Clinical Coordinator

Rebecca moved to Nanaimo, BC from Kemptville, Ontario in 2014.

She then decided to take a further jump and become a level 2 certified HVAC technician, where she apprenticed and learned that she enjoyed the mental stimulation of the job more than the physical aspect.

Rebecca decided to take a job as a supervisor at a furniture store which entailed a lot of organization and learning a new type of retail.

She realized that she enjoys learning new things in all different areas of study. With her family in healthcare it only made sense that this should be the next step.

Rebecca intends on continuing to expand her knowledge into the healthcare system through online courses.

In her spare time, she loves to do puzzles, play beach volleyball, kayak, and hang out with her dog.
