Essential Physiotherapy and Wellness opened in 2004, with the focus being on Women's Health. It has since grown into a full-service clinic that still maintains a division dedicated to Pelvic Health. Sherri Moore is a Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist who originally co-owned the clinic until she became sole proprietor in 2011. She has worked in many health care environments from St. Catherines to Norwich and Dundas but had a dream of opening a locally owned and operated physiotherapy clinic in the town she calls home, Brantford. She wanted the focus to be quality one-to-one care.
In 2012, Sherri's husband Rob McCall purchased 97 Brant Ave to house the clinic and offered a granny suite for Sherri's mom, who moved down from North Bay. The clinic also needed more room for the expanding clientele and staff. The former Ged's Restaurant was built in 1890 for John Noble's Family. Sherri and her husband are very proud of their grand historical building and its stories, from a family home, an art studio, hydro office, restaurant, and now a rehabilitation clinic. We always welcome the public to come in and peek as the building still maintains some of the original features like the marble fireplace and stained glass.
In 2017 Sherri opened a new division dedicated to women's health concerning pregnancy. This division was opened after Sherri saw a need for women's health and a passion for childbirth care. This new division of Essential Physiotherapy and Wellness is Birth Essentials. Birth Essentials educates and treats women for the best experience during and after pregnancy.
In 2020 the clinic expanded yet again. We took over the upstairs of the building adding two treatment rooms, a classroom, a kitchenette, and a bathroom. We are excited to grow into this new space and add to our services.
Today, Essential Physiotherapy and Wellness is staffed with six Physiotherapists, a Massage Therapist, a Chiropractor, an Office Manager, and two Administrative Assistants. We are a clinic that strives for continuing education and excellence in training. Most importantly, we strive for compassion, communication, and one-to-one quality service.
