Shannon Marion BScPT, FCAMPT, CGIMS, CAFCI
Registered Manual Physiotherapist
When I was 15 years old, I was water skiing on the Rideau River with my family. I fell trying to slalom and tore a ligament in my knee. Everything that came next for me helped me to know that physiotherapy is what I was born to do. Sometimes people are lucky enough to go through life where all roads lead to Rome and that is what practicing physiotherapy has been for me.
What I love the most about my job is watching people transform. Pain has a way of altering people. They are not their best selves and being able to help turn that around and watching people’s natures emerge is absolutely delightful. It is quite something to witness a person go from being pessimistic, skeptical and hopeless to being full of vision at the impact a change can make.
I love working with folks who are in their Third Act, retired and vital. I love hearing about people who have the freedom to be themselves and follow their interests. I love the wisdom that comes from my clientele, this is not their first rodeo, they know what they have to do and they are looking for guidance. They want to know how to support their bodies so that they can keep doing the things that they love; whether it be getting down on the ground to play with the grandchildren or getting outside kayaking.
I also love getting results. I am a problem solver at heart. Delving knee deep into a problem, filtering the information through the years of experience and academics and determining cause and effect relationships is very satisfying. Helping people get better and seeing that the treatments are having an effect is what motivates me. I am very lucky to love my job.
I am a graduate of the University of Ottawa in 2001 and am a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapists (FCAMPT) since 2008. I am certified in a number of different dry needling techniques including a Certificate of the Acupuncture Foundation Institute (CAFCI) in 2004 and a certificate in the Chan Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation (CGIMS) technique (2005). I am a keen learner and have surrounded myself with collaborative colleagues in order to share knowledge and to continue growing from each other. I am currently studying with the Pain Science Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and am developing more tools to offer clients with chronic pain.
I moved to Cornwall in the fall of 2014 from Victoria, BC where I practiced for 13 years and co-owned a large clinic for 7 years. My family is thrilled to be reunited!
