Mira Miskovic PT (Reg.ONT)


Mira Miskovic PT, Cert. MDT, MCPA is a compassionate physiotherapist who is dedicated to assisting your recovery and to resume, and in many cases exceed your pre-injury activities and lifestyle. 

Using Osteopathic principles, McKenzie approach and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) combined with her extensive experience and training gives Mira‘s treatments ‘an edge’. It is not a rare occasion that her patients respond very favourable in the short period of time.

Years of experience working with people post stroke, head injury and other neurological conditions, along with her ongoing postgraduate training including Neuro Developmental Treatment – Bobath approach assist Mira to provide very successful rehab programs for her patients.

Being credentialed by The McKenzie Institute International to evaluate and treat spinal disorders, Mira receives referrals from orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists and Regional Assessment Centres to treat patients who already have gone through a treatment program with limited or no improvement. So far, Mira was very successful in helping these people to significantly improve their condition. She has success with helping patients suffering from herniated discs, as well as back, neck and shoulder pain.  

Mira is open to referrals from Insurance companies to treat people who have been injured in car accidents (MVA’s). Mira further enhanced her skills and developed ways to assist those patients to reduce the pain and recover faster, and safely return to work within the shortest time frame.

During the course of the treatment, Mira places a strong focus on educating you to understand your condition in order to be able to assist your body to resume its inherent ability to heal itself. She also uses ’Hands-on’ approach to remove restrictions and restore the impaired relationships within your tissues so that normal physiology resumes and enable healing.

A firm emphasis is placed on treating the cause of the problem as a must to restoring core stability. This is most often impaired due to our predominantly sedentary lifestyle or as a consequence of previous, often untreated and neglected minor injuries, which over time managed to cause changes within our body, often far away from the previously injured site.

Mira is devoted to continuously working on further upgrading her skills in order to give you the most updated and the most efficient treatment.


Sally Chung  B.FA., DTATI (theis pending),CRPO (cand.)

 Art Therapist and Psychotherapist 

Sally is a candidate for qualifying Psychotherapist (CRPO) and Art Therapist.  Through her graduate work in Art Therapy, Sally has practiced with diverse populations within various settings including, but limited to Child and Family Counselling Services, youth mental health centres, trauma facilities, psychiatric units and rehabilitation residences.  She also designs and facilitates Art Therapy groups with children and youth that focus on self-expression, fostering creative coping skills and mindfulness techniques.  With over five years of experience working with children and youth, Sally highlights the importance of a holistic approach to treatment in order to uncover the unique strengths and abilities that are easily unnoticed in children.

At the BODiWORKS Institute, Sally is offering individual Art Therapy for children, youth and adults within the Special Needs Department as a part of the BBAIM team.

Art Therapy is a unique branch of psychotherapy that uses the creative process of art-making to improve the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of individuals of all ages. Since art is a visual expression of the brain, and thus language, it accesses cognitive and emotional aspects of experiences in a different way than verbal language.  Using imagery, colour and shape as part of the therapeutic process - thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be difficult to articulate.

Sally is pleased to be part of the team and looks forward to working closely with children and their families/caregivers in the the BODiWORKS community.
