"I find Sophia to be knowledgeable and thorough. As she works on my body it's like she is working through a puzzle. I always feel good when I leave! I like that she explains everything and makes sure you understand before you are finished."
Dawn Pomponio RN, Certified Yoga Instructor, Lactation Consultant

“We are a very active family of four. My husband and I are long time runners and avid skiers, and our teenage daughters are national level field hockey players. We've all had our share of injuries, but Sophia fixed my husbands back, took care of my knee before and after surgery, and kept our girls "tuned-up". She is extremely knowledgeable and caring, and always gives you 100% attention. With her move to Campbell River, we not only lost a superb physiotherapist, we feel like we lost a friend. “
Dr. Ljerka Kunst, Professor, Department of Botany, University of British Columbia

“Sophia has tremendous therapeutic instincts to match her high level of education and skills. This creates a professional and welcoming environment that enables her to figure out where my weakness are and how best to improve them. She is a fantastic listener and asks all the important questions which help her optimize her plan for me. She also has a great understanding of my sport, running, and this really improves the level of care she can provide me. I have been a competitive runner and coach for many years and the truth is runners of all levels need a top notch hands on therapist to give them the best chance at keeping injury issues to a minimum. I highly recommend Active Living Physio for managing injuries and for injury prevention." ~ Mark Cryderman, Elite runner and running coach, Campbell River

“We’re an active family involved in field hockey, soccer, basketball, skiing and dance. Sophia treated all of us, and even our grandmother, over the past years. She dealt with our various injuries, from whiplash to fractures, with genuine concern and professionalism. As an athlete herself, we appreciated her commitment to helping us remain in sport where possible. Sophia is extremely knowledgeable, is a good communicator but most of all has a great heart for her patients. She goes the extra mile in providing the best care she can. As a former Physio, I confidently recommended Sophia to a number of friends and everyone was incredibly pleased with the care she provided. North Vancouver’s loss is Campbell River’s gain!” ~ Anne Thicke, Physiotherapist

“This year marked a milestone for me: it was the first year in decades that I did not suffer one of the painful and debilitating muscle spasms that used to occur every few months. I attribute this improvement entirely to the treatment regimen from Sophia. Since a series of other health care practitioners had previously failed to provide any improvement, I had actually resigned myself to having to live with the problem for the rest of my life. Thanks to Sophia my life is much better than it was previously. I do have one regret about being "cured": I always enjoyed my physiotherapy sessions with Sophia, and miss having them!”
Michael Doherty, Barrister & Solicitor, B.A., M.A., LL.B., M.Jur.

“Dear people of Campbell River: It is our loss and your gain to be so lucky as to have Sophia as the new physio in town. She is the very best physio I (and all clients I referred to her) ever had. Her expertise is that she doesn't just look at the injury on its surface, but has an ability to figure out the root cause of the injury, leading to a complete resolution of the problem.“
Cullen Goodyear, 2011 Ironman Triathlon World Championship 2nd Place Finisher Women age 60-64, Personal Trainer, Swim Coach
