Mission Statement


We are Lakeview Physiotherapy & Acupuncture – a local and distinctive Physiotherapy clinic in Calgary owned and operated by physiotherapists since 2006. Our mission has always been to be a different kind of physiotherapy clinic. Our clinic provides a private environment for patients to tell their personal story and our physiotherapists take ample time to listen to these stories. Each treatment is unique for each patient.

We aim high to solve our patient’s physical problems. Our clinic has proven to be a success – for the patient’s getting better and telling others that we are here to help – and for our physiotherapists and staff who enjoy working here.

Lakeview Physiotherapy & Acupuncture is here to help the entire family. Movement is our business.

About Lakeview Physiotherapy & Acupuncture

Lakeview Physiotherapy & Acupuncture was founded in 2006 by Nancy Baxter and Gayle Hulme. As physiotherapists, Nancy and Gayle knew how important the clinic environment is to the patient and physiotherapist. With that in mind, they set out to create a space with private treatment rooms – gone are the curtains and rows of treatment tables!

Our first clinic gave us the right start with just enough space for our private treatment room concept. We have grown over the years….with more patients to help and more physiotherapists to work. In 2015 we moved into our current larger clinic. Our private treatment rooms have continued to be a mainstay of practice; this allows for the utmost in confidentiality and comfort that our patients love.

Of course, it’s not just about the clinic but the skills all of our physiotherapists have that make us a success. We have a talented group of physiotherapists who all are dedicated to their profession.

A native Calgarian, Nancy has been practicing physiotherapy since graduating from the University of Alberta in 1980 with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy. Nancy’s love for athletics and fitness led her to focus on sports medicine and orthopedics early in her career.

Diversifying interests and experiences over the years has included much work with arthritis, the treatment of persistent pain and offering treatments for those baby boomers trying to stay health and active!

Nancy is certified in acupuncture and IMS. Today, Nancy’s treatment style reflects her successful integration of techniques and philosophies gained through her varied work settings and many ongoing postgraduate studies.

Nancy brings energy and commitment to her practice, her patients, and to her business Lakeview Physiotherapy & Acupuncture which she established in 2006 along with her business partner Gayle Hulme.

Julie completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Chemistry and then continued on to finish her Master of Science degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Alberta. Post graduate courses include additional training in both traditional acupuncture and dry needling as well as certification in Women’s pelvic health physiotherapy.

Julie is especially passionate about providing a high standard of care and education for pre- and post-natal patients. She is a strong advocate of movement therapy, engaging patients to play an active role in recovery and health maintenance. Julie is very active outside of the clinic-playing hockey, hiking and biking.

She utilizes her diverse background in sport to help patients reach their own personal goals.
