Veteran's Programs

"I can recommend this program to anyone, especially the Vets who are experiencing physical and psychological issues. It helps your body and your mind. With the sessions they have got for us it is very easy to adapt to and build yourself up. I think Grant is one of the best exercise gurus I have every worked with, and I am getting a heck of a lot out of this program. It is putting me in good stead for everything else that I do in life."

"I've been to many Physiotherapists over a span of 40 years, and have found none as professional and caring to my physical aches and pains as the physiotherapists at Vida Wellness and Rehabilitation."
