Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is a referral needed for physiotherapy?


    You no longer need a referral from a physician to receive physiotherapy. Some Extended Health Plans request that you obtain a referral prior to treatment if you are going to be claiming reimbursement.

    Please check your plan for specific details.

  • Where is the clinic located?

    On the outskirts of Parksville, just off the Alberni Hwy. (No. 4) at Allsbrook Centre Plaza.

    You can visit our contact page for more information.

  • What about parking, access and handicap parking?

    There is plenty of free parking in front of the clinic and excess parking in the gravel lot at the rear of the plaza.

    You can access the clinic by turning left onto Bellevue Rd.(off of the Alberni Hwy.), then the next left on Allsbrook Rd. Proceed into the plaza, and turn left at the front of the building.

    There is also a dedicated handicap parking stall located at the rear of the clinic.
