imgVinita Chandra Mody

PHYSICAL THERAPIST BIO

Vinita has over 15 years experience working in Physical Therapy, although her passion for manipulating the body began as early as eight years old. She came up with the idea to open her own practice when she developed a following of loyal patients who attested to the benefits of her unique therapeutic style. Vinita earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at Canada’s McMaster University and a Master of Science in Physical Therapy at Canada’s Queen’s University. Her “eye” for catching faulty movement patterns has enabled her to address patient’s pain complaints in a scientific and effective way. Vinita is a generalist in physical therapy who addresses complex cases using her strong background in anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics.. With full body and nerve entrapment certifications in Active Release Technique™, Polestar Pilates and Pelvic Floor Certifications, she combines her extensive experience using her hands and her passion for science and education to provide comprehensive services. Vinita is also the founder of ICT by Stroma™ which is a vascular, neural and myofascial technique that was created from her love of healing patients.
