We also have a new Neurochangers logo !
This year we have made some new changes with our neurological centre Aim2Walk in Toronto. With many ideas and discussions regarding our name, we have decided to go ahead and change our name to Neurochangers. Our second location in Whitby is also named Neurochangers which made our decision and transition easier. With this going forward we have also amalgamated our blog into our website. Although this Neurochangers blog has been a successful way to create and share information to our readers for the past 5 years, this will be our last post on this site. We ask kindly that you take the time to follow us at our new site where we will continue to share health tips, technology and keep you updated on the latest events and compelling client progress stories. We thank you for your love and support over the past 5 years and we look forward to having you stop by our newest site! Click here to subscribe.
From Aim2Walk’s Neurochangers Family, we thank you!
It’s always exiting to share positive information about events and festivals that have recognized and implemented the need for accessibility. Canada’s International Documentary Festival is happening here in Toronto on April 28th-May 8th, 2016 and for the first time in 23 years, they have done just that. Hot Docs is not only North America’s largest documentary festival with over 200 films, but this year, it will be providing 25 of the screenings for blind and low-vision viewers. They are looking forward to extending their audience to one who normally would not take part in the festival.
AMI accessible media Inc has teamed up with Hot Docs to bring this described video technology to the documentaries. They have tried to make the festival as accessible as possible. To find a film at the festival with described sound please visit this link.

Enjoy the festival!
Congratulations to one of Aim2Walks Physiotherapists, Megan Covert, for completing her Neurokinetic therapy, level 2 course. The techniques are a new way to treat underlying causes of pain and I can be the first to tell you, it works! In the past few months while Megan has been practicing on us therapists as well as on our current clients, we often say, “it’s magic.” NeuroKinetic Therapy is a sophisticated bodywork modality that can be used as both an assessment and rehabilitative technique for low back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, and other injuries.The ideas and patterns our bodies create usually after an injury, can cause us significant pain in other areas of our body, yet by finding the underlying problem, you can retrain your brain and fix the issue.
Megan recently completed her final exam for the level 2 with an outstanding mark. This has allowed her the opportunity to be able to assist with teaching others this course and she will be completing her level 3 later in this year.
Do you have pain that continues to re-occur time and time again? You may want to try Neurokinetic therapy!
Congratulations Megan! We are all very proud of your accomplishments!
