Hi, my name is Justin Mah, and I am a physiotherapist and performance coach who completed my Masters in Physical Therapy degree from the University of Toronto and BHSc in Biomedical Science from Western University.
Exercise has always been an important aspect of my life as an avid weightlifter, hockey, and yoga athlete. During my younger years, I suffered social anxiety and found it difficult transitioning into high school – exercise and weight training became the outlet to allow me to work on myself and improve my mental health. When I suffered a severe shoulder injury during undergrad that prevented me from working out, I felt like I lost a piece of who I was – I thought I would live with this for the rest of my life. Having gone through this process, I understand what it means to feel like you’re broken. I understand what it means to feel like you lost your way of life, and because of this I made a commitment to help others not suffer in the same way I did. This is my WHY when I made the decision to become a physiotherapist.
My mission is simple – to provide you with the tools to take care of your own body – we only have one body in this life, and my goal is to empower and educate you on this life-long journey. I use a combination of manual therapy, electro-acupuncture, and strengthening and mobility exercise to create a personalized plan of care for you to reach your goals.
When I’m not in the clinic, I’m usually doing any activity related to food – cooking new recipes, trying new restaurants, or experimenting with new smoothies for our smoothie bar. I’ve recently started attending fitness classes at OrangeTheory Fitness, and am learning how to stand up paddleboard (SUP) on the lakefront behind our clinic!
Hi, my name is Thusheinth Sivarajah and I am a Physiotherapist and Certified Personal Trainer who completed his Master’s in Physical Therapy program at Queen’s University.
Once you get to know me, you’ll realize that there is never a dull moment when you work with me. I am devoted to getting you back to doing what you love while making sure you are having fun during the journey. As an avid weightlifter, martial artist, and volleyball athlete, I have experienced all types of injuries myself – ranging from a common strain to some very severe injuries. These injuries have helped me greatly empathize with my clients, understanding the importance of active rehab for long-term results.
My goal is to make sure every person I work with gets an active solution and is educated and empowered throughout the process. By using a blend of manual therapy (hands-on care, without machines), mobility, and strengthening exercises, I am committed to finding the right treatment approach tailored for you.
When I am not in the clinic, you can find me working out at the gym, doing group fitness classes, walking my dog, or on a court (playing some basketball or beach volleyball).
Hi, my name is Tharaniya And I am a Kinesiologist who is a certified personal trainer (CPT) with the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology. I finished my Masters in Physical Therapy at Brunel University.
I place great importance in fostering independence among the individuals that I work with for long-term success.
Exercise, strength training in particular, is my foundation and I hope to seamlessly transition my clients from rehab to strength and conditioning. I believes that as humans, you are all resilient, adaptable, and stronger than you think. Ultimately, my goal is to listen to, educate and empower my clients.
In my spare time, you can catch me jamming out to dancehall/soca music & lifting some heavy weights.
Hi, my name is Colby Ng and I am a chiropractor and completed my Doctor of Chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. I also completed my Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of Toronto.
I have been in sports and athletics my whole life, which has pushed me to have big goals. I have my eyes set on many crazy things and know how important it is to have people that can help you do the things that matter most. While reaching my dreams mean a lot to me, I have also been lucky enough to share the joy of other people’s accomplishments. Knowing that I played a small part in helping someone reach their fitness, health, or life goals has empowered me more than I ever thought it would.
I believe that my role as a chiropractor goes beyond providing pain relief. I like to use a combination of manual techniques like deep tissue release, mobilizations, adjustments, and acupuncture to relieve the discomfort. Pairing this with exercises and rehabilitation allows me to provide the long-term relief needed to get you on track towards your goals.
When I am not in the clinic, you will find me chasing my own dreams in the weight room, on the road, on the trail, and on the climbing wall. Right now, I have my eyes set on qualifying for Boston, doing my first Ironman, and planning my next multi-day trek.
Hello! My name is Christian Tabula and I am a Registered Massage Therapist. I graduated at the top of my class from ICT Kikkawa College, and a Honours graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University with a BSc in Kinesiology.
I grew up being physically active and a devoted sports fan. This contributed to my eagerness to learn more about the science behind movement. Quickly I became passionate about movement and manual therapy and their effects on the functioning of the human body. Pursuing a career in massage therapy was a perfect way for me to further expand and share my knowledge to help others. My goal is to educate you on the reasoning behind what you are dealing with, and to put you back in control of your body, whether you want to relax or fix nagging pain or injuries.
In treatment, I use massage techniques including joint mobilizations, deep tissue, trigger point release, soft tissue release, and cupping when appropriate. I work with you to come up with an individualized plan of care to restore function and have your body moving optimally on a long-term basis. This goes beyond treatment, by prescribing appropriate exercises and self-care that works to achieve your goals.
In my free time, you can catch me on the basketball court, the golf course, or walking my dog along the waterfront. If I’m not outside, I’ll be lifting some weights or watching and supporting my Raptors or Blue Jays.
Hi and welcome! My name is Tanisha Shekdar and I’m a holistic health nutritionist. I completed my masters in biotechnology from UofG and I’m about to receive my doctor of naturopathic medicine degree from The Canadian College of Naturopathic medicine.
I struggled with digestive and skin issues all my life. Sinus infections and dealing with IBS issues was constant for me growing up; not to mention, I was put on antibiotics at least twice a year throughout undergrad. It was when I got shingles at the end of undergrad that things really took a turn for the worse. I felt so alone and hopeless with how I was feeling. I wish someone had told me all the things I have come to learn now about. For me, everything changed when I started pinpointing my food triggers, supporting my immune system, and really understanding how the gut-brain connection which started improving my bloating, mental fog, fatigue, and anxiety. Now, thanks to my experiences and education I can really understand how important stress management, sleep, and diet is to an individual’s physical, mental and emotional health.
I’m a strong believer in educating others which is why one of naturopathic medicine’s philosophies resonates so well with me – Docere literally translates to doctor as teacher. My goal is to empower my clients and provide them with all the knowledge in order to not not only help them feel their best but also to provide them with the tools in order for them to take control of their health!
When I’m not in the clinic, you can find me gardening, prepping for my next fitness competition, experimenting to create the next best gut friendly snack, and planning my next travel adventure!

Hi, my name is Martin Wong and I am Strategy and Marketing Advisor here at AOM! I am involved in everything from branding and marketing to website design and maintenance. I have a Bachelor’s of Engineering from McMaster University and a Master’s of Science from the University of Toronto.
As the Marketing Coordinator, I draw on my experiences as an active (amateur) athlete and from the injuries and treatments I have gone through personally to communicate our AOM approach and ethos to clients. In doing so, my goal is that all current and future clients come out of their AOM experiences not only physically better but also more knowledgeable of their own bodies – enabling them to live their best and most active lifestyle.

Hi! I’m Ushwin, I am a physiotherapy resident and group fitness trainer with a deep passion for health, fitness, and helping individuals regain and take back control of their health. My educational journey began with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at McMaster University. Subsequently, I continued my academic pursuit at the University of Toronto, where I finished my Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy.
It was during my undergraduate degree that a misdiagnosed sports injury and an ACL tear ignited my desire to pursue physiotherapy. I understood firsthand how it felt to be a patient, which has fueled my empathy and determination to help others overcome similar challenges.
Beyond my clinical pursuits, I have been an Orangetheory Coach group fitness coach for the past two years. Witnessing the progress and dedication of members in group classes has been truly inspiring. In this role I have developed my ability to address imbalances and provide options to participate in fitness, regardless of one’s fitness capabilities.
I bring a wealth of experience, including working with the Toronto Marathons for the past two years as a physiotherapist in the emergency medical tent. This hands-on experience has given me a unique perspective on injury management and experience with acute running injuries. Additionally, I worked with university level varsity athletes in Football, Tennis and Soccer where I provided therapy prior to games/practices and delivered emergency sideline athletic therapy during games/practices at McMaster. This experience has honed my skills in on-the-spot injury assessment and care.
Outside of the clinic and coaching, you’ll often find me pursuing a balanced and active lifestyle. Whether I’m on the volleyball court, soccer field, dancing to music, or unleashing my creativity as a DJ mixing music, I embrace every opportunity to stay active and express myself.
I’m eager to join you on your journey to optimal health and well-being. Please don’t hesitate to reach out, schedule an appointment, or share your own wellness stories with me. Together, we’ll work towards a healthier, happier you.
