Fanaye Whyte, PT

Registered Physiotherapist

Fanaye Whyte graduated from D’Youville College in Buffalo, New York with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, after completing a Specialized Honours degree in Kinesiology and Health Science at York University. She is also a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, Women's Health Division.  Her passion for physiotherapy began with her own experience, suffering multiple sports injuries as a competitive varsity track and field runner, and as a recreational basketball, flag football and volleyball player. 

Fanaye believes that treatment should first and foremost thoroughly address patient concerns and goals. She practices with an evidence-based approach that involves comprehensive assessment, hands-on treatment, exercise prescription, patient education and other modalities including acupuncture to alleviate pain and improve function.  Her number one objective is to deliver exceptional care and help her patients achieve optimal outcomes that enhance their quality of life.

Having had the opportunity to work in many rehabilitative settings from acute to chronic care in inpatient and outpatients facilities, Fanaye has experience working with a variety of populations.  These include but are not limited to neck and back pain, sports injuries, postural dysfunction, arthritic conditions, post-operative orthopaedics (e.g., full knee and total hip replacements), traumatic orthopaedics (e.g., fractures), as well as repetitive strain injuries.  Her clinical experience at New York University Medical Hospital in Manhattan exposed her to caring for patients with neurological conditions such as stroke, traumatic and non-traumatic spinal cord injuries, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons and Alzheimer’s disease as well as cancer patients.  

Fanaye is dedicated to growth as a clinician by furthering her skill sets through continuing education.   She has completed training in Contemporary Medical Acupuncture, Pelvic Health Physiotherapy, as well as courses on kinesiotaping, manual therapy, soft tissue release and exercise prescription.

Jocelyn Karr

Certified Yoga Instructor

Jocelyn is thrilled to be part of the team at East York Massage and Physiotherapy Studio. She originally came to yoga a few years ago, while searching for a physical activity less strenuous than running. She soon discovered yoga is just as demanding in a different yet awesome way. Yoga also provided an additional bonus of intellectual and spiritual engagement.

In 2014, Jocelyn travelled to Costa Rica to attend a yoga retreat and decided then that she wanted to become a Yoga Instructor to deepen her own practice and to allow her to share the experience of yoga and all the benefits with others.  She has trained in Hatha Yoga with The Yoga Mat, a registered yoga school, and is looking forward to sharing the joy of yoga in a fun environment, especially with those just discovering the practice.

"Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we're frantic, life will be frantic. If we're peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace."  (Marianne Williamson)
