Art + Science Physiotherapy and Pilates invites you to experience the art of healing rooted in the science of movement. When Alexis Officer first had the idea of opening Art + Science in Smiths Falls, her dream was to provide healing services with a less clinical feel…a calming, safe and supportive environment that offers her clients the time and space to connect, be heard and build trusting and collaborative relationships with Alexis and her team.
At Art + Science they do not just want to fix your injuries, but what really interests and motivates them is to inspire you to set the course of your lifelong movement story. To give you the knowledge, the tools and inspiration to live life to the fullest by learning to move more and move better.
Setting up their business in Smiths Falls was an easy decision to make for Alexis.
“This is a community that is tight-knit, but at the same time growing and changing. It is full of people who really care about making this a good place to live. I have always felt welcome here,” said Alexis.
Alexis Officer may not have grown up in Smiths falls, but she adopted the community as her own after marrying her husband, Dan, a Smiths Falls’ ‘original’ and moving to town to raise their three children.
“I have always felt I wanted to build my practice in the community where I live and where my kids go to school, and so Art + Science was born.”
Opening her physiotherapy business downtown has been the perfect fit for Alexis, who said she loves working on Russell Street.
“It feels like a friendly place to me. It’s the perfect blend of a little bit of bustle without the traffic jams or noise. I love that you can walk from one end to the other in five minutes but still find everything you need.”
Art + Science has been open now for three years, and Alexis has spent that time getting to know the community, meeting the people who live here, and hearing their stories. “I’m really starting to know what this place and people here are about.”
Alexis’s philosophy is focused on helping people to feel and be their best.
“I believe that the only person that can make you well is yourself. No two people are alike and everybody experiences pain differently. I love to connect with my clients, hear their story, and give them the knowledge and support they need to find their own path to wellness.”
