STEVEN PEACH
Physiotherapist / Clinic Owner

Steven was born and raised in Chatham. Ever since he was young he knew he wanted to be a physiotherapist and eventually open up his own clinic one day. Steven completed his Bachelor of Human Kinetics degree at the University of Windsor and further pursued a Master of Physical Therapy degree at Western University. After two fulfilling years of clinical experience, Steven ventured out on his own and opened Peach Physiotherapy & Wellness Centre in August 2014.

Throughout his clinical experiences, Steven has shown an interest in the treatment of all injuries, ranging from acute sports injuries to chronic and postural related injuries. Since graduation, Steve has completed courses in acupuncture, the Mackenzie Method of assessment and treatment, post-concussion syndrome, and cervical spine techniques. In his spare time, Steven enjoys spending time with family and friends, running, travelling, and playing golf and hockey.

KATE (RANDALL) PEACH

Kate is a Registered Physiotherapist (PT) specializing in both Pediatrics and Pelvic Health Physiotherapy.

Kate’s love for Pediatrics began at Western University where she completed her Master of Science degree in Rehab Sciences. At Western, Kate’s research was focused on balance tests in children with cerebral palsy. After spending time with Pediatric PTs and the energetic and charismatic children, Kate knew she wanted to work as a Pediatric therapist and pursued her Physical Therapy degree at Queen’s University. Since graduating in 2014, Kate has been working with children and loves every minute of it!

Kate thrives on learning and has taken post-graduate courses in the following areas of pediatric rehabilitation: early motor development, neurodevelopmental treatment, orthopaedic management of cerebral palsy, Cuevas Medek Exercises, specialized adaptive equipment (eg: walkers, standers, wheelchairs), toe walking, and more!

In 2019, after finishing her maternity leave with her daughter, Kate completed specialized training in Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation and treats incontinence, pelvic pain and prolapse. Kate became passionate about this area of physio during her pregnancy when she sought out pre-natal pelvic floor physio. Pelvic Health physio can have a large impact on a person’s day-to-day functioning, but people are often unaware or too embarrassed about this part of their body to seek help. Kate’s goal is to educate and empower men and women to take control of their body!

When Kate’s not working, you can find her getting sweaty at Blairs’ Bootcamp, singing made-up songs with her daughter Isla, playing fetch with her goldendoodle Maizy, and enjoying quality time (or watching Netflix) with her husband Steve! Kate’s current favourite show: Life in Pieces!
