Welcome to Active Living Physiotherapy Clinic
COVID-19 Clinic Re-Opening Procedure
We are happy to announce the reopening of our clinic for in-person services on 27th May, 2020.
The safety of our clients and staff is of paramount importance. We are screening the clients coming into the clinic – see consent form and declaration.
You may be asked to wait outside until the physiotherapist is ready to see you. The physiotherapist only sees one client at a time.
We are cleaning and sanitizing the high touch areas (e.g. door knobs, faucet) after every client. We are also deep cleaning and sanitizing
the entire clinic 2– 3 times /day. On arrival at the clinic please wash your hands and wrists for 20 – 30 seconds with soap and water.
Please bring a clean facemask. A facemask will be provided if you do not have one.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Virtual Telehealth Services are still available.
We provide individualized, one on one physiotherapy treatment by an experienced and registered physiotherapist in a relaxing and private environment in Coquitlam. Following an initial assessment, we customize treatment to meet your needs.

What Our Clients Say
The patient who sees Gowri is extremely lucky. I had neck, upper back and low back pain. She spends time explaining the exercises and the progression
and also educates me on what I should and should not do. I am feeling much better now.
Thank you very much for your help Gowri.
Gowri is amazing!! I was in very rough shape after my car accident. Movement in general was very painful. My shoulders were permanently sitting one higher than the other in standing and sitting positions. Luckily this is when I found Active Living Physio. Through various methods and exercises she now has me almost completely back to 100%. I cannot thank her enough.
Gowri is very thorough, knowledgeable and Professional. She gets to the source of the problem. She checks on my homework and knows when I am naughty. Her expertise has helped me tremendously. Thank You Gowri.
I could not walk more than two blocks before my hips started to hurt intensely. On my initial visit Gowri’s good nature made it easy for me to explain my predicament when she immediately became involved in my problem. After only a few visits I am now able to walk long distances. She even helped improve my posture. Thanks Gowri.
Gowri explained everything to me clearly and eased my anxiety and stress level considerably following my injury.
I feel so much better both mentally and physically.
After 2 months following a radical prostatectomy, I was incontinent to the point where it affected my active lifestyle. I sought out physiotherapy to help me with pelvic floor strengthening and bladder control. My urologist said that 6-12 months was the normal range to get past the incontinence. However, after several sessions with Gowri and a regular exercise program over a 2 month period, I am under control 99% of the time. Gowri handled the personal nature of the therapy with dignity and professionalism.
I like the one on one treatment and I don’t feel rushed. Plus I have a great physiotherapist.
I suffered from severe arthritis in my hands. Gowri was so kind and caring. With her extensive knowledge of physiotherapy she provided me with a variety of exercises and treatment that gave me relief and improved the mobility in my hands. Her passion for physiotherapy and respect for patients is evident.
I am almost fully recovered from my injuries due to the great treatment provided by Gowri. She is very caring, knowledgeable and professional.
I have severe osteoarthritis in both my knees and ankles. My mobility has greatly improved with physiotherapy and orthotics. Gowri is very professional and I highly recommend her services.

Gowri was the perfect match to help with my recent concussion from boxing. Her clinic was in the privacy of her own home which made me feel very comfortable. She helped me understand what was going on with my injury. She is patient and thorough. She customized my recovery program based on my injury/needs. She gave me confidence that I would be back to my normal self.
