Home/About Us/The Pure Team/Jean-François Bérard

Before graduating as a practicing therapist, JF knew that he had to make a difference in his future profession. With a strong passion for his career choice, as well as a true belief in what physiotherapy can bring to those in need, he started his own style of physiotherapy practice. This style focuses on an ‘off the grid’ type of therapy that only uses heat, ice and acupuncture as modalities when deemed necessary. All the methods of intervention revolve around educating clients, hands on skills, and tailored therapeutic exercise applications. Years later, Pure is now proudly continuing this style of therapy with the help of an amazing team that believes in its effectiveness.

“I love what I do and I am always extremely excited to share that knowledge with someone who cares about helping themself. It is a privilege and one that I do not take lightly. I also make sure to practice what I preach, and lead by example for my clients.”

Jean-François’ clients will appreciate his incredible attention to detail, starting with a comprehensive assessment, which he believes is the basis of any effective treatment plan. He takes time to educate clients about their injury and treatment plan in order to help them move towards pain free function. Teamwork between the client and therapist throughout the entire process is key and allows for proper progression and recovery.
