The vision of Glow Physio started with a mom of two young boys who recognized the need for another way to offer the essential service that is Pelvic Health Physiotherapy in Squamish. A portion of each session is allocated to a fund to provide Glow Physiotherapy's Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy services to Squamish Parents and Parents-To-Be on income assistance.
