D’Arcy Bain, BPT 

Owner, D’Arcy Bain Physiotherapy

D’Arcy became interested in physiotherapy after working with the high school football team for 2 years while in high school. He was interested in the idea of helping athletes of all levels return to their sport at the highest level of function. As a professional, the smiles and thanks from those returning to their sport was very rewarding. D’Arcy’s philosophy of treatment is to make the rehabilitation program active, progressive and interesting.  D’Arcy wants to enhance the speed of recovery, healing and return to activity on the shortest time line using his experience and knowledge. He enjoys educating patients on their condition, advising on activities to enhance recovery and systems to prevent or stop re-injury. D’Arcy enjoyed many successful years of coaching Ringette, girls Fast-Pitch Softball and Hockey. D’Arcy has 5 daughters with names all starting with the letter ‘J’.  He is also a proud grandfather of 2 granddaughters and counting.

Rebecca Olfert, MPT 


Rebecca entered Physiotherapy because of her first anatomy class where she developed a passion for learning about the human body and its ability to heal and adapt. Rebecca’s treatment philosophy is based on the idea that movement is fundamental to who people are and that treatments should be highly individualized to each patient. With this philosophy in mind, she strives to teach patients to be active participants in their treatment and helps them to create sustainable changes that will prevent injuries later on. When Rebecca is not treating patients she can be found rock climbing with her husband, walking her dog, reading, drawing, gardening, or playing piano.
