~Marius Walfisz~ Registered Physiotherapist/Expert Myofascial Release Therapist/Owner
Marius Walfisz is founder of both Rylander Physiotherapy Centre and newly opened Windswept Physiotherapy - Myofascial Release Treatment Centre. He graduated in 1988 from the Professor Waiss Institute of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation in Poland, near Warsaw. After completing his studies in Poland, he worked for the Polish National Team as a physiotherapist. He then moved to London, England where he worked as a physiotherapy intern at West Middlesex Hospital. During his time in London, he also practiced as a massage therapist/physiotherapist with private clients from London and its surrounding areas. He came to Canada in 1990 and joined the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. He is registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario, and is also certified with the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute.
He established his first clinic, Rylander Physiotherapy Centre in 1995. Based in Scarborough, this centre now serves as the head office for the Windswept Physiotherapy Centre. Since opening his Rylander location over twenty years ago, Marius has treated countless patients and changed hundreds of lives. He continues to search for new theories and techniques in order to enhance his treatments, often attending seminars and courses throughout Canada and the United States. In 2006, he was introduced to John Barnes, an international lecturer, author, and authority on Myofascial Release. He gradually began incorporating The Myofascial Release approach into his practice, spending many weeks alongside of John Barnes during seminars and skill enhancement programs at the intensive treatment centre located in Sedona, Arizona. After two years of witnessing the impact this technique had on his patients, he began treating exclusively with Myofascial Release. Since then, he continues to successfully treat countless patients, including those whose pain could not be explained through the use of traditional assessment or testing.
As of 2014, he has expanded his practice to a second location, Windswept Physiotherapy Myofascial Release Treatment Centre, located in Uxbridge, Ontario, just 30 minutes outside of Toronto. This exceptional facility overlooks a natural pond and is surrounded by wildlife. This centre offers a unique and tranquil setting, creating the perfect space for your healing journey.
