Melissa Arlantico
Physiotherapist (PT)
Melissa grew up dancing in the City of Vaughan as a competitive dancer and completed all her Royal Academy of Ballet examinations. Currently, she enjoys staying active through weight training, CrossFit and cycling. Her fascination of the intricacies of human anatomy and biomechanics lead her to pursue her career in physiotherapy. Melissa graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Kinesiology with High Honors, and later obtained her Master of Science (Physiotherapy) at McMaster University. She is a member of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario (CPO), Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) and the Ontario Physiotherapy Association (OCA). Melissa also completed the McMaster Contemporary Medical Acupuncture course, and offers neurofunctional acupuncture and dry needling as a service to her clients. Through her history as an athletic artist, Melissa understands the importance of movement for a variety of activities from recreational to pro-level sports. She is passionate about using collaboration and open communication to create individualized treatment plans to meet her clients’ goals. Melissa’s practice is primarily focused on active-rehabilitation, which encompasses dynamic mobility, functional conditioning and strength training. She also uses a combination of education, acupuncture, soft tissue techniques, joint mobilizations, and taping to treat a variety of conditions ranging from acute sport-related injury, surgery and chronic pain.
