Gemini Health Group was established by Alex and Tara Gurba in September of 2019.
We set out to implement our vision for what wellness and rehabilitation healthcare should be. A place where people come to recover from injuries and pain as well as maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Our goal is to focus on exceptional customer service that makes everyone feel comfortable and welcome in an environment that is inviting and relaxing. When you come to Gemini we want you to be surrounded by friendly, caring and helpful people and leave feeling like you got 100% of the attention of your therapist and their best effort in helping you achieve your goals.
Both Alex and Tara graduated from York University with bachelor’s degrees in Kinesiology after having played varsity basketball for the Lions. Although they chose different career paths, with Alex pursuing physiotherapy and Tara following her love for animals in a veterinary technician role, they both remained passionate about sports, nutrition, health and the never-ending thirst for knowledge.
Alex has always had a passion for teaching. In 2016-17 he assisted Dr. Hamilton Hall with his class at the University of Toronto Medical School titled “Mechanical Low Back Pain: A Syndrome Approach”. Under Dr. Hall’s expert tutelage, Alex’s knowledge and expertise grew and his passion for education blossomed.
“I recently had the pleasure of working with Alex for some physio therapy and it was absolutely amazing! I have seen multiple physiotherapist in the past and haven’t had one so attentive before! He really listen to my concerns and anxiety around healing after a surgery. He’s given me a lot of hope to continue my healing journey after being told there was nothing anyone could do for me, I cannot be more thankful for his help!”

“Alex is an incredible Physiotherapist. He is professional, caring and incredibly passionate. I love that he educates his patients as he explains the work you should do at home. He is honest and ready to help in any way he can. He has helped me with my intense back pain while I was pregnant and after giving birth. He also saw me immediately this winter when I slipped on ice which allowed for a quick recovery. 5+ stars!!!”

“If you are in need of physiotherapy or massage therapy you are in the perfect place, the staff is very knowledgeable which for me was critical as I am interested not only in treatment but also in understanding what cause it and how to avoid pain in the future.”
– Leonid Zadonaisky
“Alex is a truly fantastic and unique physiotherapist. Unlike some clinics I’ve been to where they churn people in and out as fast as they can, Alex takes the time to educate you on how best to treat your condition. Both my neck and hip that were bothering me have massively improved thanks to Alec’s personal attention and coaching. Highly recommended, you won’t be disappointed.”
– Stephen Crawley
“This is the third facility offering physiotherapy that I have been to and by far the most professionally run. My physiotherapist Frank was straight forward, honest and well informed. I would recommend this place to any and all who are in need of these services.”
– Dan Hess
“I would HIGHLY recommend Alex and The Gemini Health Group. Alex has been my Physiotherapist for some years now. I have had several injuries/issues over the years. Alex is a professional and very knowledgeable in his field. He is caring and compassionate. Not only has he dealt with my injuries but he also explains the benefits of preventative measures. There have been times when I was in extreme pain and discomfort. He always made time for me.

“After a disappointing experience on a different location in the area I had my 1st visit to Gemini based on the great reviews, as soon I walked in I realized was gonna have a 5 star treatment, started with Melisa at the front desk and went on with my physiotherapist Alex that did such an amazing job dealing with my injury
Thumbs up and looking forward to my next visit”
