Carla Bifolchi, R.Kin

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

Carla graduated with a Bachelor of Honours in Kinesiology at York University, with the realization that continuing her education in the realm of therapy would be of great benefit to her prospective clients. Working in various settings such as outpatient physiotherapy clinics, geriatric short stay rehabilitation and complex medical care at St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Center, and homecare settings has been a great asset to Carla. The diverse needs of patients, exposure to medical procedures and how disease affects the body give her a unique perspective on her approach to therapy with her clients. Carla is an advocate of being active, and when she is not treating patients, spends as much time as she can outdoors with her dog. She has interests in a multitude of sports including soccer, biking, rock climbing, swimming and cross-country skiing.
