WELCOME TO HUMAN 2.0
Ottawa's "MOVEMENT" centre
Orthopaedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist, Dr. Chris Raynor will provide medical care for new and existing patients at our office. Please fax referrals to (613)730-5484.
At Human 2.0, we offer active physiotherapy, athletic therapy, and massage therapy to patients of all ages and with injuries of all types. We treat everyone from seniors to elite athletes.
Our group training classes are weakness and movement-based. This means that we use natural movements and target areas of the body where individuals typically have trouble - shoulders, back, knees, etc.
Human 2.0 is a sports medicine, rehabilitation, performance and movement centre located in Ottawa, Ontario. We want to empower people of all ages and abilities to take charge of their own health and wellness by providing education and training in functional fitness, prehabilitation, and active recovery modalities, and by offering much-needed support to the community in a positive and welcoming manner. Our vision is to effectively spread this message throughout our community and beyond.
At Human 2.0, we are a fully integrated health and wellness centre with lots of services to choose from...
Proper nutrition is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle. We believe in eating simple, unprocessed foods, and consuming in moderation and at regular intervals. Not sure if you are on the right track? Why not make an appointment with our registered dietitian Margaret today?
Whether the people at your business sit all day at a desk, stand at an assembly line, or do labour intensive activities, they might be at risk of injury and illness. We can help to keep them healthy by showing them how to incorporate more movement into their daily routines.
Have you suffered an injury? The good people at Happy Brace Company pride themselves on their product and procedure knowledge. Strongly committed to customer service and support, they have off-the-shelf and custom bracing options to fit any need.
As health and wellness educators, we are happy to visit schools and other organizations to offer workshops based on our philosophy of functional and sustainable fitness. We want people – especially youth - to know that moving is vitally important to a person’s health and well-being.
Dance Fundamentals For Maximizing Movement Potential
Guest author: Quintessa Raynor (dancer, musician, artist) _______________________________________________ “Dance is a performance art form consisting of purposefully selected sequences of human movement that have aesthetic and symbolic value, and that are acknowledged as ‘dance’ by performers and observers within a particular culture.” Wikipedia.

10 TIPS FOR FINDING BALANCE IN LIFE
Ying and yang. Easy and hard. Fast and slow. Our lives are filled with opposition. We’ve all heard the saying, when it rains, it pours, and it’s on those days that we can barely keep up. But other times, life slows down to almost nothing. Nobody’s around, and even if we wish it would, the phone doesn’t ring. For most of us, we flit back and forth between these two states of existence, most of us lingering more at one end than the other. That’s usually the problem. Some of us are too busy, too stressed out; others, not busy […]

Raising A Brave Girl

Two years ago, my wife gave me the best gift possible. I was given a new path in life and a new mission when I first laid eyes on my beautiful baby girl.
