Lauren completed her undergraduate studies at McMaster University where she obtained a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. From there she went to the Ontario College of Health and Technology to obtain her Registered Massage Therapist license.
Growing up, she played very few sports, only because once she found one, she liked she stuck with it. Lauren did Taekwondo growing up, learning self defense and discipline. Later on, Lauren fell in love with rock climbing and still is to this day. You can find her climbing at Mount Nemo or the Niagara Glen on beautiful sunny weekends! As with most athletes, Lauren suffered her own injuries and went through rehab for many different injuries. With this injury she had to take a step back from climbing, but during that time she fell in love with body building.
Lauren is a firm believer that exercise plays a huge role in all physical rehab. She uses it alongside all of her treatments to help bring you back to doing what you love.

Pat Stanziano has an extensive background across many physiotherapy disciplines. Since deciding to focus his practice on outpatient orthopedics, Pat has become certified in the McKenzie Method, a system that allows him to provide advanced diagnoses and therapeutic care for sufferers of mechanical low back and neck pain. In addition, Pat is one of only a few physiotherapists in Oakville that is (actually) a sport physiotherapist, an extensive process that Pat is very proud of due to the countless hours doing what he loves: being around athletes of all ages and skill levels in a competitive environment.
Pat is required to complete hundreds of clinical and field hours, periodically, to maintain his status as a Sport Physiotherapist. He does so by being quite involved with figure skating and Skate Canada, typically volunteering for host medical positions at events, sometimes even being tasked to be Chief Therapist. Additionally, Pat is in his 4th season as a member of the health support team for Skate Canada, occasionally travelling with a Canadian contingent of figure skaters to international competitions.
Pat loves his football though, in whatever manner he can get it: coaching, providing therapy, refereeing, or going to see his beloved Bills. On top of all this, and most importantly, Pat is a proud papa to a beautiful little girl and baby boy, as well as a loving husband to his very awesome and understanding wife, as you can assume she must be from all the extra-curricular volunteering that he takes on.
