Jeremy Barichello MPT, BKin
As a little kid, I always told my family I would grow up to be a Massage Therapist. While ultimately it was the profession of Physiotherapy that captivated me, that childhood desire to alleviate pain and help others live healthy lives still permeates my practice. Combined with this desire is my focus on active rehab, incorporating exercise, education, collaboration with patients, and manual therapy to achieve the best outcomes.
I graduated from UBC with a Master’ degree in Physical Therapy, and the University of the Fraser Valley with a Bachelor’ degree in Kinesiology. I believe learning never ends and am motivated to further my physiotherapy education and training. Most recently I have completed training in vestibular therapy and I am training to become a Certified Hand Therapist.
In addition to physiotherapy, my passions consist of rock climbing, skiing, and hiking. On any given weekend, you can expect to find me on one of our local mountains.

Our team implements numerous treatment techniques to ensure your individual physiotherapy goals are met, including manual therapy, joint and soft tissue mobilization and manipulation, IMS/Functional Dry Needling, taping, exercise prescription, education and modalities.
We are dedicated to not only provide treatment and care post injury but also to the prevention of injury. Whether you are a competitive or recreational athlete, have certain physical occupational demands, are a musician or a weekend warrior, movement development plays an important role in your performance.
We prefer a hands-on approach, bringing you back to your optimal movement and health. Through our detailed assessment including palpation and special ligament, joint or manual muscle tests, we are able to provide quality manual treatment consisting of soft tissue, joint and neural mobilization and manipulations.
Intramuscular Stimulation (IMS) / Functional Dry Needling (FDN) is a treatment used in injury rehab and pre-hab and can treat both acute and chronic pain.Thin needles are inserted into the muscles to elicit a “twitch response.” This neuromuscular response allows tight muscles to relax, reducing pain and increasing function.
Exercise through movement, strength, flexibility, stability and balance are essential in our everyday activities. Having synergy within our movement systems allows us to function optimally. We create individualized exercise and movement plans that are essential to your performance and in achieving your goals.
Each individual is unique and brings different health goals to the table. Through our massage treatments, our job is to aide in your personal health journey. We will use different soft tissue techniques to return your individual body to its optimum function and work to maintain such. Massage treatments may consist of the use of massage tools, fascial release and stretches and the release of muscles though associated movements.
Even after just one session, I would recommend trying FST. I felt better after my session with Sheena than after a regular massage! I've booked another session and I am looking forward to it!
Take care of your equipment, and your equipment will take care of you. Our bodies are our most important piece of equipment and FST sessions with Sheena are an exceptional tool to keep everything balanced and flowing properly. My sessions with Sheena have reduced recovery times and improved my overall wellness! I HIGHLY recommend!!!
I received FST treatment from Sheena and she was amazing! The treatment helped with my mobility in my hips and also cured sciatic issues so I was able to do my daily activities. I would definitely recommend her if you want to be more mobile and have your body feel better in general
Megan helped me through the pain and loss of mobility associated with the breakdown of my left knee, and prepared me for the challenges of knee replacement surgery. During post surgery rehabilitation, Megan's experience, patience and persistence allowed me to recover quickly and regain my mobility. My experience gave me complete trust in Megan's abilities and compassion for her work. Should the need arise I will be sure to seek Megan's professional care to see me through.
I have visited many physiotherapists over the years for my chronic back pain, the difference at Elevate Physiotherapy & Wellness are the results. Megan's ability to identify the specific problem, explain it in terms I can understand and provide immediate relief utilizing Manual Therapy and IMS allows me to enjoy more pain-free days than I have had in years. Megan augments the treatment provided at her clinic with a specific regiment of core exercises I can easily follow at home. I am thankful for the pain relief Megan provides and would encourage anyone to visit Elevate Physiotherapy & Wellness for your specific physiotherapy needs.
I have been seeing Megan for around two years now. I love that she really takes the time to research the sport I am in so that she can fully understand what's going on with my body. She takes her time in assessing the issue at hand and I always feel better when I leave
Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)
Fascia Stretch Therapy (FST) is a gentle full body assisted stretch session. FST improves the mobility of your nerves and the flexibility of your muscles and fascia by focusing on the fascial lines that connect through and wrap around muscles, nerves, organs and just about everything else in your body. By focusing on the neuromyofascial full body stretch, clients are able to increase mobility of joints, improve recovery time from an injury, assist with the healing of old injuries, maintain flexibility as you age, feel less stressed, obtain a more fluid movement quality and the list goes on and on… FST is pain free and one of the quickest, most effective and relaxing methods to eliminate pain, restore function, move and feel better in day to day activites, fitness and sports!
What can you expect from a typical FST session?
Upon your first treatment, your FST therapist will ask specific questions, and assess the body based on any complaints, or questions you may have. Each session is catered to the clients needs. All treatments are done on the table with two straps. The straps are there to hold the one leg in place, while the opposing one gets moved around. This assures a true stretch is occuring. The therapist will target each fascial net in order to properly assess which net is responsible for your pain. For each session, the client is expected to wear stretch pants, or shorts, and a tank top or t-shirt. Short shorts are not recommended.
Mobility is often improved after the first treatment, however hydration following your treatment is important. The therapist will give you exercises to help your areas of tightness. More than one session is normally recommended. Many clients report a decrease in stress, improved sleep and significant decrease in pain.
